If for some reason you have not seen the “Agents of SHIELD” season 3 mid-season finale yet, then be warned that this article may contain spoilers.
Now that that is out of the way, fans can agree that the winter finale of the Marvel series, titled “Maveth”, was more intense than anybody expected it to be.
Dr. Andrew Garner/Lash (Blair Underwood) was able to escape and is now unaccounted for, Daisy’s (Chloe Bennet) Secret Warriors were able to show some skills, and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) was left heartbroken when Fitz (Iain de Caestecker) returned without Will (Dillon Casey) in tow.
When you think those scenes were intense enough, then you may have a hard time grasping how the episode fared out for Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Ward (Brett Dalton). To summarize, Coulson killed Ward–and he did die–but the creature in the alien planet was able to use Ward’s body to come through the portal and go to Earth.
Now, Vine Report details that when “Agents of SHIELD” returns, Coulson and Ward will be transformed individuals.
According to the website, changes will be more evident on Ward because he is now an Inhuman and technically, a different person.
IGN was able to chat with Brett Dalton regarding the fate of his character and he did not hesitate in saying that the new Ward, which he calls Ward 2.0, will be a big deal. IGN quotes the actor in saying:
“..this is probably the hardest iteration of this character because we aren’t dealing with a “human being” anymore. This is Ward 2.0. This is a human being plus something else, this is a human body being occupied by a creature that’s been around for centuries.”
In addition to this, it must be noted that the Inhuman creature inside Ward has been worshiped by Hydra for years; therefore, we can expect a brutal Inhuman that will challenge SHIELD and the Secret Warriors.
On the other hand, the events of the mid-season finale will not have a good effect on Coulson–especially to his mental state.
The Hollywood Reporter quotes “SHIELD” producer Jeffrey Bell in saying:
“The fact that Ward took Rosalind away from him enraged him in such a way that he compromised his character, albeit in a very cool, epic way.”
Fans can expect answers to their burning questions when “Agents of SHIELD” season 3 returns on March 8 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
