AGENTS OF SHIELD Producer Spills On The Future Of The Show; Confirms Fate Of [SPOILER]

The Agents of SHIELD are still picking up the pieces after the events of The Winter Soldier. IGN sat down with the show's producers Jeph Loeb and Jeffrey Bell to talk about the future of the show and cleared up a loose end from Tuesday's "Turn, Turn, Turn". Hit the jump to check it out!

Phil Coulson and his team are in for an unexpected ride after the collapse of SHIELD! IGN sat down with Jeph Loeb and Jeffrey Bell to talk about where the show is heading, teasing the end of the season, the future of Brett Dalton's Agent Ward and clearing up the fate of Saffron Burrow's Agent Hand after the controversial ending to last week's episode 17, "Turn, Turn, Turn"!
When asked about matching Tuesday's incredible episode Loeb revealed that the rest of the series will not only match, but surpass episode 17. He told IGN that they haven't played their tump card yet saying, "There's a whole new dynamic. We have revealed to the audience that Ward is Hydra, but our team does not know that yet. So we have many cards to still turn over in the last five episodes."
Loeb went on to tease that (as most fans predicted) Ward might not end up helping the enemies of SHIELD by the end of the season. When quized on whether or not Ward's arc had always led him to the dark side of the the MCU, Loeb encouraged the fans to wait and see teasing "You're assuming this is the end of the story"
Jeffery Bell then cleared up the fate of Saffron Burrow's Victoria Hand, saying that, "Let's say that Ward definitely killed them, it's the Marvel Universe... But he definitely put three shots in her, and he killed her," ending speculation that Ward had used the show's Icer to knock her out, "he iced her in the old-school version of iced her."
Bell also ensured fans that the mystery behind the show's Clairvoyant (after some fans refused Bill Paxton's "confession" this week) won't be under wraps for much longer: "We love the fact that you're still questioning it, but let me put it this way: you'll know after next week the answer to that question..."

What do you think of Loeb and Bell's comments? Do you think Ward is working for or against Coulson? Sign off your thoughts on what path the show is following below!

Well that's disappointing. Killing off Victoria Hand this early was short-sighted, but at least the show is moving towards solving some of its major mysteries.

wow...i really thought that he let Hand have a chance... that was what really made me think he was in double agent territory cuz i KNEW he killed those other two agents...but to kill Hand? One of the few people left on the good side? Idk...Maybe Ward really is Hydra.
Vegeta - 4/11/2014, 10:38 AM
Well that's a shame. I liked Victoria Hand.
KeefNCookies - 4/11/2014, 10:39 AM
I hate Loeb's contributions to Marvel.
Wish Hand wouldve shot Ward instead.

Sniff, sniff, snnnnnnnnnnnnniiiiiifffffffff.. you Hydra, DEV? Do I need to check you for a wire? I'm paranoid lately.
mctrinket - 4/11/2014, 10:40 AM
Hail Hydra.
soforizo - 4/11/2014, 10:41 AM
That sucks. I would've liked this, if Ward had not been ruining Hydra plans earlier in the season or saving non-Hydra agents when his cover wasn't at stake. Victoria didn't do much to be killed this soon.

"he iced her in the old-school version of iced her."

third3ye - 4/11/2014, 10:41 AM
Pretty indifferent about Hand, so don't care that they killed her off.
MarkV - 4/11/2014, 10:43 AM
Why does this show exist now? Shield is destroyed. Captains orders.
soforizo - 4/11/2014, 10:43 AM

I'm not crying a river over her death, but given that her character is supposedly from the comics, I wanted to know what made her special and that last episode was the first time she had a significant contribution.
DEVLIN712 - 4/11/2014, 10:43 AM
Don't worry, it's like Garrett and Ward, turn and turn. I ain't gonna back stab ya!
ALmazing - 4/11/2014, 10:44 AM
Also, this is me watching the last episode

Pretty awesome stuff.
soforizo - 4/11/2014, 10:45 AM

I'd say Shield has been broken down, but the good guys are very much Shield.
soforizo - 4/11/2014, 10:46 AM

Redeeming him now should be out of the question unfortunately.
TruePunishment - 4/11/2014, 10:47 AM
I love how people thought he used an icer. There was a pool of blood around her when they showed her laying there.
RHd2 - 4/11/2014, 10:50 AM
I've got to catch up on the show. Finally saw CA2- it was beyond awesome! Did anyone else pick up on the Pulp Fiction reference at the end? Clever. But the movie was really good. Probably Marvel's best movie yet.
soforizo - 4/11/2014, 10:50 AM

That was one theory, another was him being controlled through an eye implant like Deathlok... though I'm not sure if that's also ruled out here.
2gold - 4/11/2014, 10:51 AM
Well, it's not like she is alive in the comics and I think Marvel knows that Sony will never give up Spiderman so why keep her alive?
bropous - 4/11/2014, 10:52 AM
I LOVE this show!!!!
RamonSuarez - 4/11/2014, 10:56 AM
Victoria Hand was so stupid to trust Ward.
MercwithMouth - 4/11/2014, 10:58 AM
Ward better stay Hydra. I think he'll really shine as a villain. And I really don't want them to change him into some comic character to please fanboys. He's a great character as is, and he needs to stay that way.
GinjaNinja - 4/11/2014, 10:58 AM
He's the clairvoyant... Raina is in the next episode with garret so i'm pretty sure he's going to be it
RamonSuarez - 4/11/2014, 10:59 AM
Hand is irrelevant unless there is a Dark Avengers/Thunderbolts storyline.
UltimateHunt - 4/11/2014, 10:59 AM
Im not a fan of Ward, he does kick ass by been a hydra I careless.
I bet Nick Fury will come tk the last episode to tell Phil about his new organization or the rebuild of SHIELD to take down HYDRA. Then A.O.SHield will be tie up with Age of Ultron.
GinjaNinja - 4/11/2014, 11:00 AM
hand dead opens the chance for more comic book characters to take her place as the higher level agent.

Who else wants quartermain to join with mockingbird?
sinthegreat - 4/11/2014, 11:01 AM
Hand has nothing to do with spiderman @2gold
Supervenge - 4/11/2014, 11:01 AM
I think he's just spying for Shield and tried to get in good with his old supervisor. Did anyone else notice how the 2 guards got headshots, but Hand got 2 to the chest? I think the guards were collateral damage to protect his cover and Hand is still alive.
UltimateHunt - 4/11/2014, 11:01 AM
Ward got a kiss from Skye.
Thats all he wanted and decided to back to HYDRA :p

2gold wad referring to the Dark Avengers storyline in which Norman Osborn is the leader of the Avengers and hand is is go to girl.Sony having Spiderman rights, having Norman Osborn rights, no Dark Avengers.
MsDarkPhoenix - 4/11/2014, 11:10 AM
I got so mad when Ward killed Hand!! She was such a bitch, I liked her!!
Barry - 4/11/2014, 11:12 AM
Victoria Hand asked Ward to kill Garrett in cold blood. She might not be Hydra, but she wasn't a good person.
yinyangpalms - 4/11/2014, 11:13 AM
Not buying it! Then Hand wasn't really Hand. He shot what appeared to be Hand.
Barry - 4/11/2014, 11:14 AM
MercwithMouth - 4/11/2014, 11:16 AM
Hand is dead. It's a Joss Whedon created show. Main characters will turn, important characters will die.

If Ward is not truly Hydra, I'll be pissed beyond belief. When Loeb and Bell did their interview about Ward, they explained many things about how the seeds were planted all season long. His character is better suited to the villain role, and it explains why he was such a boy-scout for most of the season. He had to look like the perfect SHIELD agent, to make his cover stick.

Please, PLEASE don't cop out of having a great, ORIGINAL villain.
Barry - 4/11/2014, 11:20 AM
Now that Alexander Pierce is dead, Project Insight has been foiled and Baron Von Strucker has struck out on his own, I'm hoping for a Game of Thrones scenario over command of Hydra. As far as I know, Bill Paxton is only signed on for four episodes this season and he's already appeared in three. If Garrett is captured or killed in the next episode, I'd like to see Ward step up and lead one of the factions vying for control. It would be better if the AGENTS OF HYDRA under his command are already established characters rather than nameless, faceless redshirts. He could assemble a team that could consist of: Raina, Dr. Franklin Hall (Graviton), Mike Peterson (Deathlok), Donnie Gill (Blizzard), Chan Ho Yin (Scorch, assuming he somehow survived), Ian Quinn, Camilla Reyes (Coulson's Peruvian former ally) and Miles Lydon (Skye's Rising Tide hacker ex-boyfriend). Maybe they could even throw in characters from the films such as Emil Blonsky (The Abomination) or Justin Hammer. If the plan is to keep Ward a part of the series long-term, he needs an arc of his own apart from being a thorn in Team Coulson's side or pining for Skye.
