AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
You can check out our recap of last night's episode, "The Writing on the Wall," over on Spinoff. If you missed the first season of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," then you're in luck. Decider announced yesterday that Coulson and his crew will be available to stream on Netflix starting on November 20.
For those of you that are caught up with the show, here's a preview of next week's episode, "The Things We Bury."
ComicBook.com has posted an interview with Brett Dalton, who plays Agent Ward. The actor talked about the #SkyeWard sect of fans that are still rooting for Skye and Ward to get together -- despite them usually being on opposite sides of a prison cell.
"Our relationship on the show is one that's clearly there, but the writers haven't taken any easy paths and they didn't try to rush into anything," said Dalton. "As we get into this season, fans are going to love what's coming up. The tension is there, there is some water under the bridge, but some new road blocks pop up. That being said, do we lean into it at all outside of the show? We've posted videos online, fans have sent us captain hats that we've taken pictures of, and all kinds of things like that. It's what makes it a ton of fun."
"S.H.I.E.L.D." showrunners Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon spoke to CBR about the show's new additions. "It's been great to add new people into the mix," said Tancharoen. "We already have a cast of six that we started off with from last season, and at times people think, 'Oh, that's a lot of characters to service in each episode.' But adding these new people in like Hunter, Mack, and now Bobbi, it just sort of organically opened up the world... A new dynamic that we really enjoy writing and watching is Fitz and Mack, because Fitz has come back into this season a different person. It's nice to see not only their contrast in size, but just in personality and how well they gel. It's just a really fun new relationship that we're exploring."
CBR also spoke with one of those new additions -- Adrianne Palicki, who has joined the show as Agent Bobbi "Mockingbird" Morse. In the interview, the actress compared her S.H.I.E.L.D. uniform to the one she wore when she played Wonder Woman in a passed-over pilot.
"I loved it," said Palicki of her Mockingbird suit. "They showed me the design well before it was actually made. I told Ann Foley, who is our costume designer, that, 'This is brilliant. People are going to love it.' It's always a nerve-wracking thing. I don't know if you remember when the Wonder Woman costume was released and how people were up-in-arms and went crazy. I felt when I saw this one that people were going to absolutely love the outfit. And it's super-comfortable, so there's that."
Lastly, Entertainment Weekly has an interview with Clark Gregg that touches upon the biggest reveal from last night's episode -- the mysterious alien city. When asked when the agents would set foot in the city, Gregg replied, "I think things are ramping up. If there are any kind of lessons that I'm learning from reading the scripts in season two is that things that might have taken a lot of episodes to pay off in season one, they're heating up really damn quickly in season two, so I'd be surprised if we went a hell of a lot longer without seeing where we were going."

The CW has released a whole lot of new images from tonight's episode, "Guilty." You can check out the entire gallery here, which features more images of J.R. Ramirez's Ted Grant training Katie Cassidy's Laurel Lance.
Ramirez also spoke with Collider about how he landed the role of Ted Grant. He revealed that he initially thought he was auditioning for a completely different character. "I forget the guy's name, but it was a completely different character. He was just this boxing guy who trains Laurel and had a nice little arc in the storyline this season. I was just excited to be a part of a show that's so successful and has such a huge fan base. But once I got it, I got a call from everybody over at 'Arrow,' explaining to me that the guy's name is Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, and he's a big superhero. To be honest with you, I didn't really read a lot of DC comics, as a kid, but I was obsessed with Batman, and still am. Once I realized how big this guy is and how much of an impact he has on these big DC characters, I literally became a kid in a candy store. I was so excited. That just added a whole other level to being able to do this job."
