Skye's father, Cal, returns next Tuesday on Agents of SHIELD. On the episode, viewers will find him assembles his own super power team from The Index as he prepares to go after Coulson.
Speaking with EW, exec producer Jeff Bell has teased the upcoming March 17th installment along with its poster (above). Get the scoop!
We’ve done some dark episodes where some terrible things happen, and this is more gothic dark with Cal and his team. In a weird way there’s a lot of… I’ve never used the phrase “sprightly joy” before in my life, but there’s this odd mirth. There’s this quality of this group together that is really fun, and even though they bear ill will for Coulson and his people, they’re rendered with a lot of love. Monica Breen, who wrote the episode, really captured a nice quality for these people—Cal and his band of misfits going up against Coulson and his band of misfits. And I think this poster really captures that. But there’s also larger-than-life looking Cal, and in many ways, he looms like that for Skye’s character—sort of as the other father figure—and in many ways, the “dark dad.” And in addition to the S.H.I.E.L.D. bird, there’s another bird. There’s a reason it’s there, as you would imagine, but I love that that’s there.
