'Agents of SHIELD' showrunners answer some Season 2 burning questions

agents-of-shield-season-2-questions-abc-marvel.jpg "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" Season 1 might be over, but there are plenty of questions left unanswered from the ABC series' first season. And, as is the way with this show, all of those questions just lend themselves to more questions.

Since it's such a long time to wait until September when "Agents of SHIELD" will likely return with Season 2, and because we can't help but keep talking about that awesome finale, we decided to list all the questions we have for the upcoming season. Fortunately, showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen were kind enough to offer some vague teases in response to some of the big ones.

Was Coulson aware of what he was doing in the final scene? "That's a big question," Whedon says with a laugh. Tancharoen adds, "I guess we can say that's something we'll explore in Season 2." Whedon notes, "It's a good question."

Are we supposed to infer that Billy and Eric Koenig are Life Model Decoys? Laughter from both. Whedon says, "We don't yet know. They're identical." "They look a lot alike and they maybe say similar things, but that does not completely mean what you're thinking," Tancharoen says.

Can we expect Patton Oswalt to be back in Season 2 in some capacity? "We would love to have him back," Tancharoen says. Whedon continues, "So much so that we killed him and then brought him back."

When Ian Quinn takes the Graviton, does he know Franklin Hart is in there? "I don't think he does," Tancharoen says.

Is there a plan for Blizzard, who was set up in Season 1? Whedon says, "Whenever we introduce something, our goal is not to let it fizzle out. We do plan to revisit things. Any door we open, we hope to walk through and explore at some point. Hopefully we will get to that at some point."

But these are only some answers after a finale that opens up many, many more questions. Like ...

  • Why is Skye a monster?
  • How is Skye a monster?
  • Was that her mother or father?
  • How did Raina know about the parent?

  • Does this mean he can reunite with the Cellist?
  • Will an Avenger ever appear on "Agents of SHIELD"?
