Agents of SHIELD Season 5: Would Daisy Johnson Really Stay in the Future?

Let's say you go to the future and find out that the Earth is just floating debris, the majority of humanity is dead, and the handful that's left are living like slaves under the thumb of an alien race. Probably not the best scenario ever, and you'll likely want to find your return ticket to the past right away. But now say that while you're there, you find out that you are the reason the Earth is shattered and all those folks died or were cast into slavery. Now what do you do? Stay in the dystopian future in hopes of preventing it from happening, or go back and risk doing it anyway? That's the decision Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) is facing in this season of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. Shortly after arriving in the future and finding out the Earth was destroyed, she also discovered that it was Quake who did it.


We know that Daisy is going to be reluctant to go back to her own time, knowing what she knows. But will she really stay in the future? asked actor Clark Gregg, who said:

I wouldn't be surprised if she did. How can she not be ambivalent, even though we haven't really proven anything, there are these rumors that she's the one responsible for destroying the world. Since she's already come out of season 3 feeling responsible for causing Lincoln's death, she's really had enough for being responsible for hurting anybody, so that sounds like a conflict that may be heading our way.

I'd be surprised if Coulson was willing to leave without her. He's too protective of her. I think there will be some drama in convincing her to go, but I think in the end she will go back to her own time.

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
