Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been on a maddening, Inhuman fueled roller coaster since returning for the back half of its third season. However, things came to a serious peak this week when Daisy (Chloe Bennet) came into contact with an Inhuman that presented her with a vision of the future that rattles her to the core.
"I think there's a little panic," Bennet tells TVGuide of Daisy's reaction to the vision, adding, "After this episode, she's very confident in the fact everything she saw can change... I think that vision definitely lights a fire under her ass, for lack of better word."
Of course, a rattled Daisy doesn't just mean trouble for her emotional wellbeing. Considering her inhuman capabilities, one must wonder if her vision will affect her ability to control her powers. Last week we saw Daisy has such finely tuned control over her abilities that she's now able to blow out the windows of an SUV (without destroying the rest of the vehicle) with a mere flip of the wrist, but is that skill about to be put in peril? "She's obviously honed in her skills in terms of technicality. She's incredibly powerful, which is good and bad," Bennet says.
To Bennet, much of these mixed feelings are rooted in Daisy's protectiveness towards the Inhumans. "She's kind of like a mama bear in a way," says the actress. "She wants to protect all these Inhumans. She's finally found a group to belong to. She's finally found her family and it happens to be a huge group of people who are being exiled or reprimanded for who they are. She feels an incredible bond and responsibility to protect them," Bennet explains. "With an Inhuman who dies right in front of her, I think that will also light a fire under her ass for the rest of the season."
Then there's also the matter of whether or not this vision of death will, in some way, affect Daisy's ability to have a relationship with fellow Inhuman, Lincoln."I don't think so," says Bennet. "I think she's the type to go all out. I don't think she wouldn't get close to someone because of what could happen. She's more the type to get even closer to them and do everything to fight to make sure that person is safe."
None of this is to also address the episode's jaw-dropping one-take action sequence, and when asked whether she would be interested in more of such prospects in the future, Bennet states, "Definitely. Kevin Tancharoen, the director of this episode, the director of the last one I did, [was] like, 'I've got another awesome one-shot for you.' So I was stoked to get to do it again... I did all of my own stunts. It's really fun."
Bennet's fight skills will only increase as Daisy gets stronger. "Since [Skye] became Daisy Johnson, I think Daisy Johnson has been pretty badass," she says. "Since Bobbi is gone, she's incredibly powerful, too. Between using her powers, and her fighting skills, I wouldn't want to meet her in a dark alley."
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on ABC.
