Agent Ward incarnates the perfect paradigm of a field agent. He’s highly-trained, good with techie gadgets, awesome physique and not to mention, the guy is every rookie’s dream S.O. Hence, the very fortunate Skye (Chloe Bennet).
Ward’s excellence in espionage clearly makes him an asset for SHIELD. But in spite of all his badass credits, thou shall not forget — he’s not a robot. Even though Ward seem to mirror the superhero-esque stereotype, it’s a breath of fresh air to see him emotionally connect with his associates as the season progress.
If you’re loving Agent Ward too on the hit ABC series, we learned via TV Guide that your fondness of him might grow a little bit more. They spoke with the portrayer of Ward, Brett Dalton and the actor enthused that fans of the series will finally get a piece of his character’s history in an upcoming episode.
Read the full spoilers below:
Expect his backstory to unfold next week, when the S.H.I.E.L.D. team is tasked with picking up the pieces after Thor: The Dark World.
“You’ll understand Ward so much more after that one,” Dalton says. “You get to see a couple of layers peel back on the onion… the onion being me. But, like, better smelling.”
Could this new side of Ward finally bring him and Skye (Chloe Bennet) closer? “Ward has trust issues in general,” Dalton says. “But yeah, there’s definitely something there. It’ll be fun to see how it develops. I’m curious myself.”
‘Agents of SHIELD’ airs every Tuesday at 8PM ET on ABC.
