And the good news is that it probably won’t be another creepy gross mind control plotline! Because it’s actually going to be another overused TV trope instead. Yaaay? (Spoilers, friends!)
TV Insider is reporting that Jamie Alexander is back when the show returns on March 3rd, and her guest appearance will feature prominently in the midseason’s second episode… where she will have amnesia after the SHIELD team finds her in the aftermath of an epic battle. Yup, AMNESIA. Luckily it’s only short term—she’ll remember her childhood and her heritage as an Asgardian, but according to executive producer Jeffrey Bell, not much else beyond that.
“Sif has no idea who Thor is or that she serves a king, and we’re going to have fun with that,” Bell said, making sure to keep the villain’s identity secret. “It’ll give us some much-needed humor in a season that’s been full of betrayal and death. Sif can’t even recall who she came here from Asgard to stop, but Agent Coulson and his team will try to help her figure all that out.”
As wacky as poor Sif’s memory loss will be, it’ll also tie into the overarching plot of this season as well. “We’ve been dealing a lot with space aliens and Inhumans in our last few episodes—things our Earth-bound heroes just don’t know much about,” Bell also noted. “They need help understanding what’s really going on. Sif’s memory—what’s left of it—will come in very handy.”
What do you think, SHIELD fans?
