Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD: 7 questions about A Hen in the Wolf House

Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Series 2

Finally, Agent Bobbi Morse makes her long-awaited debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s a shame we all knew she was coming, otherwise her identity reveal would have had more impact. But it was nice to learn that Coulson had Simmons backed-up the whole time she was in Hydra.

Questions and Observations

What is the Diviner?

We have a name for the Obelisk now – the Diviner. Which is all very well, except we still don’t know what it is. Could it be an Infinity Stone, like the Tesseract or the Aether? All Infinity Stones thus far have been shown to destroy – or at least seriously damage – any mere mortal to come into contact with it, which is in keeping with the Diviner turning most people to stone.

Alternatively, it could be a Terrigen Crystal, which in the comics is used to turn certain people – those who already have the right DNA – into Inhumans. This too would explain why it kills some people, but others can touch it. Perhaps that’s what the name means – the Diviner can find people with latent powers?

Is Skye an alien?

Her father certainly has strength beyond that of a human, and the formula that turned Garrett and Coulson a wee bit crazy has no such effect on her. So, whatever she is, she’s not entirely normal, that’s for sure.

What is the alien writing a map to?

What makes Skye think that it’s a map? Can she read it, on some unconscious level? And if it is a map, where to? Does it point to the planet where the writing originally came from? More questions than answers here, as usual.

What will happen to Raina now that Whitehall has the Diviner?

The plan was for SHIELD to use Raina as bait to lure out Whitehall, but now Whitehall has what he needs, will he even bother to go after Raina? Or, with Whitehall and Skye’s father now working together, is Raina in even more danger than before?

Is Fitz’s friendship with Mac more than friendship?

He grudgingly admitted that Simmons’ observations about Mac’s impressive physique were actually his own, given that she’s his subconscious.

When Mac’s ex was discussed last week their gender was left unrevealed. But with the real Simmons back on the scene (breathlessly hero-worshipping Bobbi), what will happen to Fitz and Mac’s friendship?

Comic Connections

So Bobbi Morse wasn’t married to Hawkeye then?

In the comics, Bobbi, AKA Mockingbird, is the ex-wife of Clint Barton, AKA Hawkeye. But on screen she is the she-devil ex that Hunter is always ranting about. Nick Blood is so damn charming as Lance Hunter, that I don’t really mind. I look forward to their interactions.

Who’s Bessie?

A cheeky reference was made to Hydra having a cow, Bessie, that produced carmine milk. In the comics, Bessie was a vampire cow known as Hellcow, appearing in the tongue-in-cheek pages of Howard the Duck – who of course put in a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy.
