AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.: Brett Dalton Discusses Tonight's Shocking Revelation
Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. aired their Captain America: TWS ep tonight, and it was hands down the best the show has had to offer yet. The finale brought some shocking revelations out of the shadows, and into the light. Hear what Brett Dalton (Agent Ward) has to say. SPOILERS AHEAD.
Well, that was unexpected! I think we all figured there'd be a few twists and turns (especially in an episode actually titled "Turn, Turn, Turn") but I don't think anyone could have guessed that 'ol reliable Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) would turn out to be a Hydra sleeper, and that Garret (Bill Paxton) was his superior...and the Clairvoyant. Last week's cliffhanger made hid seem as if Victoria Hand was the new big bad, but at the end of this week's ep she proved herself to be one of the last high ranking S.H.I.E.L.D. agents left...before being gunned down by the traitorous Ward that is. So where does this leave the characters? Marvel chatted to Dalton all about it, and it seems the ruthless Ward has formed a few genuine ties to his former "teammates" -- one in particular of course.
"Try as he might to keep those things in check, I think his feelings--or certain feelings--might have crept up and surprised him. When you’re living, eating, and on missions with people, you become part of that family unit. I think that it probably gets harder and harder to turn that off. I mean I couldn’t imagine doing that myself. Being an embedded spy has to be one of the most difficult jobs I could imagine. Because you have to wear one mask, and not forget about your job, your duty, at the same time. You have to let your guard down in a way, because they need to trust you. But it’s a false sense of letting your guard down. But my loyalty to Garrett wins out. So I have to follow his orders and I have to make some difficult decisions."
There's much more at the link below. What did you guys think of this ep? Has Ward really been Hydra all along, or is he perhaps a double, double agent? Those last couple of shots may have suggested that he's at the vety l;east conflicted. Sound off in the usual place.
