It is finally here. Tonight is the the night that we find out what happened to Agent Coulson in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The mystery has been building since it was revealed that Coulson survived his encounter with Loki in Avengers. Now we finally find out how Coulston survived. Actor Greg Clark is opening up about the big return episode before it airs.
Greg Clark is devoted to the role of Agent Coulson. The man appeared in pretty much every Marvel movie in Phase One and voiced the character in Ultimate Spider-Man. However, even Clark didn’t know what happened to Coulson after the Avengers.
The mystery that has been teased in every single episode of the show will finally come to a head tonight. Glark recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the long awaited event:
“People have been really patient. Phil Coulson’s been really patient. I might add Clark Gregg’s been damn patient. [Laughs] I had a lot of mysterious stuff spelled out for me when I was told about this job. I loved the basic premise that played out in the pilot that he has a comparatively innocuous story that he believes about this near-miss that he experienced, dead-for-eight-seconds version. And there’s a darker secret as to how he was brought back to life, but to be in the middle of it and just be a tiny bit further ahead than the actual audience, I’ve been really really getting anxious to get more information, to really find out what’s driving him, why the people who’ve known him longest say that he’s different, how is he different? “
Clark insist that the answer to the question will not be a cheap fix. Instead, it will be something dark and powerful that brought Coulson back to life, adding:
“[It's] something that’s not just some secret medical practice but something that’s mysterious, big enough, dark enough, and integral enough to the plans of the nefarious Centipede organization that they pulled a swap and let Mike Peterson go in order to kidnap Agent Coulson to find out what really happened in ‘Tahiti.’”
Be sure to check out the revealing new episode tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC.
