The seventh and final season of Agents of SHIELD finally kicked off last week, and while fans have to watch 12 episodes more to find out how exactly the MCU series will wrap up, actress Chloe Bennet has revealed that she’s satisfied with how Daisy Johnson’s story comes to an end.
“I would say I’m pretty happy with it,” Bennet told Playboy when asked if she’s pleased with the conclusion of her character’s journey. “Obviously it’s an ensemble show, so I’m invested in the other characters as much as I am with Daisy. It’s really hard to wrap up everyone’s characters, but they did a really sweet and wonderful job at giving the actors and the fans some closure for each character. And they do it in a cool way. I think for anyone who has been watching the show since season 1, it’s a very rewarding ending.”
As for whether or not Daisy, who also goes by the aliases Quake and Skye, will finally find true love at the end of the series, Bennet said: “It’s an understatement to say she’s had bad luck [with men]. I’m pretty sure all her boyfriends have died or been murdered or tried to murder her or, like, kill her parents, something like that. I’m rooting for her to find love, for sure. There’s that classic saying: If you can’t find love in the present, you time-travel to every decade and try to find it there. And that might work out for her. We’ll have to wait and see.”
Though Bennet had previously debunked rumors that she’s set to star in an Agents of SHIELD spinoff, the actress said that she would love to reprise her MCU role in the possible all-female superhero movie first shared by Captain Marvel star Brie Larson back in October.
“If they would have me, I would love to be part of that,” said Bennet. “She’s (Daisy) an Avenger in certain comic books, so I would absolutely love that. With the Marvel universe you can never say never. Look at Clark Gregg: He has died probably 800 million times as [Phil] Coulson and comes back to life. I’ll always have room in my heart for playing Daisy. I’d be very excited if that opportunity came to me.”
Like Bennet, Gregg said that he’d also be open to reprising his Agents of SHIELD role in the future. “It’s hard for me to imagine a scenario where I’d say, ‘No, I’m too busy to put on whatever the latest version of the suit is and go play Phil Coulson,’” the actor said in an interview with Variety in May. “I’m always thrilled when I see them changing timelines and exposing a multiverse in the cinematic [universe]. Because I think, ‘Well, I’ve seen scenarios where I could be around!’”
Agents of SHIELD season 7 airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
