“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 2 returned on Tuesday with a bang — and a lot of prejudices. As Skye (Chloe Bennet) and Raina (Ruth Negga) came out of the Terrigen Mist, it became clear that fear was causing Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) to think differently. She claimed that no one should be studying alien powers and technology. She said they should be getting rid of all of it so it can’t hurt anyone.
Of course, Simmons was unaware that Skye had powers when she made those claims. She was freaking out because she saw Raina’s physical appearance and DNA had changed, and Raina has always been associated with evil. Simmons wouldn’t feel that way about Skye, right?
