'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Introduces "Kree" Through Raina's Story, But We Still Have Question
Everybody breath a sigh of relief. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finally confirmed "Kree" in the context of the show. We've been teasing this for ages and ages and the Marvel series finally laid some of their cards out. The character who said the word was Raina, who seems more concerned with proximity to the diviner than anyone else's safety. She explained that the alien city, like the diviner, had the ability to choose who was worthy of entering and rejected the unworthy. We saw this happen with Mack. This is why you don't go into the field, Mack! Raina referred to herself and Skye as humans with the potential to become much more. The diviner, on the other hand, is most certainly alien. The term "Kree" is an ancient term to describe the "blue angels" that fell from the sky.
Raina revealed some of her mysterious personal backstory as well. She and a gang of "freaks" used to run the streets of Thailand pulling cons on tourists when the Doctor took them in. She also mentioned her Grandmother's stories about the angels. I want to know more about this Grandmother.
The episode opened with Skye having a freaky dream in which she was referred to as "angel eyes." Does that confirm that Skye is part Kree alien? Also in the dream, we heard a spooky cover of the song "Bicycle Built For Two," which helps the theory that Skye is Daisy Johnson.
I found it slightly interesting that the term "Kree" didn't ring a bell with Skye. Does S.H.I.E.L.D. really not have any tabs on Peter Quill? Has she not been doing her alien research? More importantly, where is all of this going? Great, Skye's special according to Blue Man Group. What's the point? What do these aliens want with S.H.I.E.L.D. or Hydra or even Earth? Is this part of a bigger setup to a Marvel film?
