[Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.](tag:722469) really proved itself in Season 2. The series expanded on its characters, introduced the Inhumans to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and presented a vast amount of subplots while still moving the main story arc at a constant pace.
Season 2 closed with some pretty big cliffhangers. What will come of the Terrigen Crystals getting into the fish? What the hell happened to Gemma Simmons after being swallowed up by the Kree artifact? There's plenty of rumors going around, and that's why we've put together our top 5 Theories for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3.
[Watch Steve and Scott breakdown the theories in the video above, or if you're not the video viewing type, read the blogged out version below]
5. Fish Oil/Fish will be the Plot Device for Why So Many InHumans Will Arise
At the end of Season 2, we saw the Terrigen Crystals dissolve into the ocean and surrounding marine life. Because of this we will see tons of InHumans popping up all over the globe (either that or random people will start turning to stone...) This is where S.H.I.E.L.D. will come in to intercept new InHumans good and bad. Look for Season 3 to take a much more "Superhero-y" feel than the past spy roots the show started off with. Not all of these new InHumans will be evil, which is what leads us to our next theory.
4. The Secret Warriors Will Battle the Evil InHumans and HYDRA
Chloe Bennet has already cut her hair and has confirmed Skye will go by her real name, Daisy Johnson (AKA Quake.) Daisy will band her team of InHumans together to protect the world against evil InHumans popping up and possibly HYDRA. This could mean a complete shift for the show as we'll be seeing more supernatural elements. Also look for something to go awry with the Secret Warriors causing a major decision for the superhero registration act, playing into Captain America: Civil War next spring.
3. Lincoln Will Side With Skye/Daisy, But Not At First
Lincoln is still weary about S.H.I.E.L.D. He doesn't trust them and it's because that's what he was taught from his mentors like Jiaying and Gordon. Lincoln does trust Skye though and may even have a romantic attraction to her (remember that scene in the finale where they fell on each other and shared a slight moment.) Also, they're both pretty attractive people so that always helps too. Lincoln will be hesitant to join Skye and S.H.I.E.L.D. at first, my bet is something big will happen that will make him change his mind permanently.
2. Lash Will Lead a Team of Renegade InHumans
Think of it like this, all these people are going to suddenly get super powers. They're going to be alone, afraid, and have no idea what to do. That's where Lash will come in. Lash could act as a leader to all of these impressionable "new" powered people. Look for him to build up his own team and possibly be the "big bad" this season.
1. Simmons Will Become Evil
I know this is a bold theory, but why is no one talking about this? I am hearing one theory that Simmons might BE Lash, but I think that's taking it a little too far. In a recent interview with Clark Gregg and Chloe Bennet, they said they know what happens to Simmons and their reactions were "Okay, we're going THIS route?!" So Simmons is obviously alive, more than likely she'll have powers, and its not really in her character to switch sides, unlike say Ward (I always kinda knew something was up with him in Season 1.) The switch for Simmons would be much more shocking and surprising given how strong willed of a character she is and how loyal to S.H.I.E.L.D. she was.
So there you have it, those are our top 5 theories for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3. Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you're theories are.
