Brett Dalton Teases A New Direction For 'Ward' When AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Returns

Brett Dalton talks here about the changes to come for Grant Ward in the second half of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s second season following his less than amicable split with Skye (or should that be Daisy Johnson/Quake) in the midseason finale. Hit the jump to check it out...


Grant Ward is a complicated guy. In the first half of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s second season, we saw him go from captive to committing fratricide (and patricide) to obsessively fulfilling his promise to reunite Skye with her father. His reward? Three shots in in the side from the woman later revealed to be Daisy Johnson, a.k.a. Quake. Talk about ungrateful! As a result, big changes are on the way.

In an interview with TV Line, Brett Dalton seeming confirmed that any sort of romantic feelings between Ward and Skye are officially gone! "Ward had a hell of a time in the cage by himself for six months, he had some suicidal tendencies, and once he comes to the end of wrestling with all of his demons, he makes a promise – to reunite Skye with her dad," the actor says. "And that went on for 10 episodes. But her shooting me three times kind of answers the question of, ‘Are you into this? Is this gonna work?’ It was a big statement for her to make." The actor then went on to talk about a "new chapter" for Ward, and seeing where things go from here - especially with the deranged and confused Agent 33 at his side - should make for interesting viewing!

On a related note, I'm all caught up with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. now. It's pretty awesome, huh?
