This week’s upcoming episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will feature former agent Lance Hunter, a character who left the series in season 3. Actor Nick Blood gave us some new details on Hunter’s return and explained why Bobbi Morse won’t be appearing along-side him.
Blood revealed what Hunter has been up to since we last saw him and what to expect from his return:
“Well, he’s been up his usual tricks, doing some mercenary work and bickering with Bobbi…. He doesn’t necessarily have access to all the bells-and-whistles and gadgetry that S.H.I.E.L.D. did, so he has to use his charm and his wit to break down doors, and call in a few favors from his dodgy friends — who at times are quite unreliable!”
Lance will appeaently be a big part of Fitz’s mission to discover where his teammates are:
“Oh yeah, I don’t think Fitz could have managed it without him — or at least that’s what I think Hunter tells himself. Fitz is very grateful to see him, despite the fact that some of his ideas don’t go quite according to plan.”
Blood explained why Bobbi Morse will not appear in the upcoming episode, saying that Lance and Bobbi probably had a fight and needed some time away from each other to cool off:
“- and this time apart is allowing her to cool off. Now they each have a little bit of time and space to think until the situation calms down. That’s what I imagine.”
