Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) is set to make her second epic Earth-bound appearance on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in an upcoming episode of the series, which is due to return in March.
According to TV Insider, Thor’s fighting buddy Lady Sif will make an encore appearance in the second episode following the show’s mid-season premiere on March 3 on ABC. The gist of the story has Sif going on an undercover mission (hence the civilian clothes in the pic above) and tackling a foe “whose superpowers are equal to her own.” Now, Marvel is keeping the identity of said foe mum, but our money would be on another Asgardian. But which one? Intriguing.
Some footage of that epic showdown will find its way online (ah, the joys of social media), and Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team will head to the coast of Portugal (where it took place) to investigate. But there’s a twist: Not only will they find Sif sans armor, but she’ll also have lost her short-term memory. Executive producer Jeffrey Bell explained the neat twist:
“Sif has no idea who Thor is or that she serves a king, and we're going to have fun with that. It'll give us some much-needed humor in a season that's been full of betrayal and death. Sif can't even recall who she came here from Asgard to stop, but Agent Coulson [Clark Gregg] and his team will try to help her figure all that out.”
Alrighty. Our badass Asgardian may not have her short-term memory, but Sif still has memories of her childhood and definitely knows she is an Asgardian. But there’s gonna be more. Bell added:
“We've been dealing a lot with space aliens and Inhumans in our last few episodes—things our Earth-bound heroes just don't know much about. They need help understanding what's really going on. Sif's memory—what's left of it—will come in very handy”
Sounds like Sif will be able to help Skye/Daisy/Quake (Chloe Bennet) with everything that’s going on with her, and on all things Inhuman. What do you guys think of Lady Sif’s return to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
