Captain America looks intense and awesome!
We are all asking the same question. We now know where GH 325 comes from even if we don’t know what its from. I don’t want to say too much, but this is a big SPOILER so make sure you avert your eyes.
My thoughts are that what Coulson sees is obviously alien. Which alien? Looks like a Kree to me. All indications leading up to it made me think that it might be some gamma infused stuff, but turned out that someone (maybe S.H.I.E.L.D.) is juicing this creature for a supply of life-sustaining liquid. Honestly, for a second I thought that Skye was going to Hulk out into She-Hulk, which would be funny, weird, and cool for a regular series. I have to imagine that we find out that there may be a dormant quality to this life-juice. Coulson and Skye now have it coursing through their veins. Just when, is going to be interesting!
I am not sure that this Kree is any particular person in the canon, but that he is an unfortunate soul, captured by SHIELD or SWORD in a battle of some kind, who is now their well-spring for GH 325. I wonder whether we will learn that this alien also transmuted his fears into Coulson and Skye.
If this is a Kree then this busts open the door to the Marvel universe well past the Chitauri and may actually suggests that SHIELD has a deeper knowledge of alien lifeforms aside from Asgardians or Chitauri. This also means that Guardians will tie into this world as well. Ronan the Accuser is a Kree and will more than likely accuse SHIELD of trangressions on a galactic level after word spreads of them taking advantage of Kree physiology.
HERE is another great theory that expounds on my similar thoughts and leaps into another world!!
We’ll have to see.
I will forever call this show ‘Bloodhaven‘ in mind for reasons you can find when you click that link. This was supposed to be a Gotham-centered show, but when you inject a character like Bruce Wayne into this arena, then the plot becomes infinitely more interesting no matter what age his character is supposed to be. This is a devastated young man with little to no joy in his life, so he must fill it with something. Self-pity, guilt, anger, vengeance, and grief all wrapped up into a tiny person can make for wonderful acting classes. Let’s hope this kid is more Haley Joel and less Jake Lloyd!
Get ready for first “official” look at the next Avengers movie!! I’m sure we’ll see a lot of the South Africa footage, but not quite from this vantage.
