I think it is safe to say that Agent Hand will not be getting a Christmas card from Skye anytime soon. This is made abundantly clear by the not-so-warm welcome Skye receives from her in the latest clip for the upcoming episode “The Magical Place.”
When Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns on January 7th, the hunt for Agent Coulson is on. As we can see from the clip, Agent Ward somehow escaped the gunfire that rang out after Coulson’s abduction with little to no damage. The team is on the plane getting ready to regroup and go back out on the offensive.
Skye is in her room attempting to follow the money trail back to Centipede in an attempt to pin point where they may be holding Coulson. Agent Victoria Hand, who we saw when the S.H.I.E.L.D. team visited the Hub, comes busting into Skye’s room demanding to know what she is doing.
Skye tries to explain to her that she is following the money; however, her restrictions are limiting her access as well as her ability to do her job. She not-so-nicely asks if Agent Hand will override her restrictions.
“You’re the consultant; the one who shot Agent Sitwell.” Hand says. “Technically, that wasn’t me.” Skye responds. “I want you off this plane immediately.” Agent Hand replies coldly.
Agent Ward tells Agent Hand that while Skye’s methods may be unorthodox, she is indeed a member of the team. Despite his objections, Agent Hand is not particularly impressed.
Agent Hand looks over at May and asks her if in her professional opinion, Skye would be of any use on the plane. With no hesitation at all, May tells her no.
I sincerely hope that she means that Skye’s talents are better served elsewhere other than on the plane. I would love to know why Agent May has been so cold to Skye lately. Just how deeply involved is Agent May in this business with Skye’s birth mother? What does she know that she is so afraid that Skye is going to dig up?

I think the most important question of all is what is going to happen to Agent Coulson when he actually starts to remember the events surrounding his death?
I guess we will all have to watch and find out.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is scheduled to return on Tuesday, January 7th at 8:00 p.m. on ABC.
