Tonight’s midseason finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., “What They Become,” was full of big surprises, particular that crazy ending. Before that, however, the episode may have confirmed a couple of theories that we’ve been entertaining for a while.
This mostly comes in the form of some name dropping by The Doctor. When the Doctor is finally reunited with his daughter, Skye, he introduces himself as “Cal,” revealing what is, presumably, his real name, for the first time. This backs up the theory that the Doctor is actually Mr. Hyde, whose real name is Calvin Zabo.
If the Doctor is Mr. Hyde, that alone furthers the theory that Skye is actually Daisy Johnson, Hyde’s daughter in the comics. However, we seem to get even more direct evidence of this when the Doctor calls Skye “Daisy,” revealing, presumably, her own real name.
This all sounds pretty solid to us, but be sure to check back tonight for our interview with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, in which we talk about all of tonight’s revelations.
