AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Mega Post!

Today was a pretty busy Marvel day. Not only did we find out who'll be writing and directing the next SPIDER-MAN movie along with getting a new character poster, but a whole bunch of AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. goodies were also released.

Because a lot of AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff hit the web, I've decided to make a single post to try and make it easier for everyone.
First up is Entertainment Weekly:

This is easily the best interview that came out today, mainly because newcomer Luke Mitchell comments on his character, and what he has to say proves to be interesting. If you'll recall, in a recent interview with HitFix, he wasn't able to say much of anything - seriously. So it's nice to learn more about Lincoln, and how he'll fit in on the show!
As Skye copes with what her new change means, she’ll soon find some assistance from fellow Inhuman Lincoln (Luke Mitchell). “He helps Skye adjust to her new powers in a way that makes her more comfortable with them,” Bennet says. “And they might like each other at some point… He’s going to be a breath of fresh air to the show and change things up. He brings on a whole other part of the show that people are going to be excited about. His powers are dope!”
“He’s reasonably confident in his own abilities,” Mitchell coyly adds of Lincoln. “He’s quite knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about the whole Inhuman thing.”
Despite this new change, executive producer Jed Whedon stresses that she’s still the Skye we’ve come to know and love over the last two seasons. “Her dad thinks she’s Daisy,” he says. “We’ll see if she ever gets to the point where she believes that that’s something that she would want to call herself. But right now, she has her own identity.”
Moving onoto's intereview with Clark Gregg! 

As the mid-season finale showed, while we know that Skye is now Daisy and that she is now an Inhuman (along with Raina), the characters on the show don't know this yet. The second half of season two will basically serve as an "origin" story for Skye/Daisy, and over the next couple of episodes we should see how all of this effects her team.

Gregg had this to say about what happens next: "We don't quite know what happened. And yet something clearly happened, and that's really the tension of the first couple episodes back is what happened to Skye. This is one of the things that I've liked most about this season in that that relationship got so tight by the end of last season and only more so this season. And yet, she's risen to a place where she's one of the most effective agents he has. And so he's put in this position where she's a daughter to him. She's the closest thing to a daughter. And what bonds them is their dedication to this cause, whereas head of S.H.I.E.L.D., he doesn't get to be quite as touchy-feely as he was season one. He has to make choices that are simply for the greater good that S.H.I.E.L.D. provides which is protecting the world from the strange, the weird, the line that Joss wrote in the pilot. And it means putting her in dangerous situations. And I think it makes him feel very responsible for whatever's going on with her."

You can read the rest of the interview by following the link above. It's rather short, but Gregg's answers are lengthy. 
While on Larry King Now with Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker and Brett Dalton, Dalton explains Inhumans to Larry King. The cast also has some fun goofing off. I can't embed the videos, so you'll have to head to the source to watch them.

TV Line has a rather lengthy interveiew with Chloe Bennet. She teases how Trip's death will impact her character, the Inhumans, Raina's transformation, and SkyeWard.
TVLINE | The showrunners told me that Trip’s death will weigh heavily on both Skye and the team at large.
Yes, [BJ Britt] was a dear friend on and off screen, so it wasn’t too hard for us to get to that point of being really upset that he’s gone. So, yeah, everyone is really mourning that loss — especially Skye. She feels a huge responsibility for his death, considering that he went in to save her and I came out with these powers. It’s going to be weighing on her for the better part of the rest of the season, if not forever.
TVLINE | Does the term Inhuman already exist in this universe, or is it coined in the course of diagnosing Skye?
That’s something that we address a little bit later, as we see some more characters get introduced. Let’s just say that the show gets much “broader.”
TVLINE | And how would you tease Raina’s own reaction to the Terrigen Mist?
She for her whole life has been waiting for this moment, and really has done anything to get to the point where she is able to turn — but Skye really could not have cared less, so things went in an “interesting” direction for both of them. [Laughs] I would not have wanted that response [that she had], let’s just say that!
 Edited to add another Clark Gregg interview. I'm not sure how I missed this one, but I did. Oops!

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. returns TOMORROW night on ABC at 9PM EST, be sure to tune in!
