I’ve already discussed my biggest OMG moment from this week’s episode of Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD, but we also have to talk about that promo. You know – the promo that made everyone yell, “Simmons, no!” at the same time. It looks like Hydra’s been recruiting – but could they actually pull our dear Jemma to the dark side? Next week’s episode, titled “Making Friends and Influencing People,” certainly shows a Jemma Simmons that we haven’t seen before.

Basically, we’re all like this:

The official episode description reads:

Coulson and his team race against HYDRA to get to Donnie Gill–a dangerous gifted with the ability to freeze objects–while Simmons is caught in the crossfire.

And here’s the preview:


So, that means one of three things…

  1. Simmons left Coulson’s team to join Hydra
  2. Simmons left to be a double agent at Coulson’s request (unbeknownst to the rest of his team)
  3. Simmons left to be a double agent against Coulson’s wishes

When I learned that Simmons “left for Fitz’s own good,” I initially thought it was just a bad plot contrivance. Something to shake up the emotional core of the show and make us root for Fitz. Also, Whedon shows have a tendency to just send people off for someone’s “own good,” even though it makes no sense and is completely out of character. Why yes, I am still bitter about Giles going back to England, why do you ask? But my point is, I thought it was sloppy writing. Now that we know Simmons is working with Hydra – one way or another – things should get pretty interesting.

What do you think – is Simmons a Hydra agent or is she working for Coulson? I mean, this girl cannot possibly be a Hydra agent, right?
