EXCLUSIVE: Daisy's Back With the Team But Still Fighting Her Own Battles in 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Sneak Pee
By Meredith B. Kile
Daisy Johnson is back in the fold with Coulson and the crew on this week’s all-new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but it seems old habits die hard for the former agent, who went rogue after the devastating events of last season’s finale.
In ET’s exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday’s all-new episode, titled “Lockup,” Daisy (Chloe Bennet) runs through a prison alongside S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents Coulson (Clark Gregg) and May (Ming-Na Wen) as they’re chased by a mob of angry inmates.
“We’re never going to make it!” Coulson worries aloud, as they race through an empty mess hall. But Daisy has other ideas.
After her fellow agents make it through a safety door, the Inhuman agent barricades them on the other side, breaking the lock off and staying behind to deal with the mob on her own.
“This is my fight, not yours,” she tells Coulson, before running back to fight off the prisoners. Check out the clip above to see what happens next!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. newcomer Gabriel Luna, who plays Ghost Rider Robbie Reyes on this season of the Marvel series, spoke with ET recently about the almost immediate connection his character had with Daisy, as they both seek vengeance using their superhuman powers.
“They’re both like, this is my problem, let me deal with it. I got this,” Luna explained. “I think it was that, and the respect for that they see in each other, that kind of drew them together.”
Whether that respect evolves into something deeper, however, remains to be seen.
“I love the dynamic between Daisy and [Robbie], you know, a lot of people are speculating about a romantic relationship -- people either really want that or they don’t,” Luna said candidly. “In the end, what I really love about them is this kinship, this almost like, sibling thing between them. Their acknowledgement of each other, and what they are.”
“As it stands right now,” he added, “we’re two peas in the pod, who just fell out of the pod, and now we’re rolling around on the floor somewhere.”
