Chloe Bennet recently dished on why her character Daisy Johnson goes rogue in the upcoming season 4 of ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
It can be recalled that in last season’s finale, a six-month time jump revealed that Daisy, also known as Quake, was in hiding and was no longer an agent. Talking to TV Line, Bennet acknowledged that the Inhuman has a bad track record when it comes to forming relationships.
“Daisy cares so much about the people that she’s with, the people of S.H.I.E.L.D., that she feels like if she gets too close to them, something bad is going to happen, they’ll get hurt. I feel like she’s protecting them, in a way, by going rogue,” she explained.
Despite the media seemingly painting her as a potential antagonist, given her association with chaotic seismic events, the actress believes that Daisy doesn’t simply create problems. She elaborated that while viewers may see her amid collapsed buildings and bridges, the civilians are “always miraculously saved.”
“The bad guys always seem to be losing. I think she’s becoming more of a vigilante than maybe she would like. I think she’s trying to do good,” she added.
Meanwhile, the official synopsis of the new installment hints that the team will possibly have trust issues with the arrival of the new director, to be portrayed by Jason O’Mara.
It turns out, S.H.I.E.L.D. will come out of the shadows but the organization will need a new head as the world thinks Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) is already dead. As he goes back to the field, his colleagues are also given new responsibilities.
“Agent May [Ming-Na Wen] is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz [Iain de Caestecker] and Simmons [Elizabeth Henstridge] have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant,” the description reads.
Season 4 of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 10 p.m. ET.
