Following the explosive events of the season 2 premiere EW has released an official image of Adrianne Palicki in costume as Bobbi Morse, along with some tantalizing information I don’t think anybody was expecting.
According to the EW article Palicki will begin her Marvel career not as a member of SHIELD but as head of HYDRA security! We had been told that she may start the season as a bit of an antagonist to Coulson’s group but this is much more than what anybody had guessed at. Morse, or Mockingbird, has a long history of playing double agent in the comics so this is not entirely implausible but its nice to see the writers go with a direction few thought of.
Also of note is her dark hair. Known for her flowing blonde locks, this is yet another departure fans weren’t leaning towards. The darker hair more than likely is simply a signifier that she is playing for the bad guys and if/when she decides to join SHIELD we will see her blonde hair.
What do you guys think of Palicki in costume or about her muddied allegiances? Yay or nay? Let me know in the comments below and don’t forget to check back in to OTL News for full episode reviews of all things Marvel and Agents of SHIELD!
