Spoilers forward for the fifth episode of Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5, referred to as “Rewind.”
Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D. hasn’t been fairly the identical since again in Season three when Bobbi and Hunter got a spy’s farewell and left the present. On the time, followers thought they might see Bobbi and Hunter again in primetime as stars of a spinoff, however that never happened, and we have been with out the dysfunctional duo ever since. Happily, “Rewind” brought Hunter back to spring Fitz from jail and assist him on his large mission, and it might have revealed precisely how each Bobbi and Hunter can return in the remainder of Season 5.
“Rewind” was a reasonably wild trip for Hunter and Fitz, as what began as a jailbreak ended with the 2 breaking again into the ability to steal a cryo-freeze pod and (because it turned out) a aircraft filled with confiscated S.H.I.E.L.D. gear. They have been appearing off of the information of a sentient being by the identify of Enoch, a pre-teen Inhuman “seer” named Robin, and Robin’s mother Polly who tried to assist interpret her daughter’s ambiguous prophecies. Sadly for Robin and Polly, assembly with Fitz and Hunter put them on the radar of some very unhealthy individuals. With Fitz heading to the future with Enoch, mom and daughter have been going to be in loads of hazard. In spite of everything, Enoch made for fairly a protector together with his know-how that appeared to cease time.
That is the place Hunter and Bobbi are available. Upon studying that Enoch and Fitz could be leaving, Hunter promised that he and Bobbi would take care of Robin and Polly. In accordance with Hunter, Bobbi might use a great trigger, and he appeared to bond with Robin a bit in the course of the episode. Whereas Bobbi and Hunter do are inclined to battle quite a bit when collectively — in truth, actor Nick Blood just lately mentioned that Bobbi would most likely be absent from the episode as a result of she needed some time away from Hunter — they will additionally band collectively when united in a typical purpose. What extra worthy purpose than defending the lifetime of a little bit lady who had change into an Inhuman and will hardly perceive her personal powers?
Admittedly, defending Robin and Polly signifies that Bobbi and Hunter will not be becoming a member of the brokers within the thick of the motion in 2091, however the brokers will probably be coming back from space eventually, and “Rewind” ended on a cliffhanger in terms of Robin. The army bigwig who had been in command of protecting Fitz in custody was decided to get her fingers on Robin and use her as a weapon, claiming that it might be greatest to get the lady on their facet. When two of her individuals didn’t retrieve Polly or Fitz, she shot them each within the head. She’s clearly keen to kill and do no matter it takes to get what she needs, and she or he needs Robin.
If this army girl and her individuals are going to be the brand new villains in one other Season 5 arc, Fitz and Co. would nearly definitely have to cross paths with Polly and Robin once more, and crossing paths with them would nearly definitely imply crossing paths with Hunter and Bobbi. Now, I will be the primary to confess that there’s a large cause why this won’t occur. Adrianne Palicki, who performs Bobbi on Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D., landed the position of the main girl on Fox’s new hit sequence The Orville. She is probably not out there to reprise her position in Season 5, even when Nick Blood is ready to come again as Hunter. Nonetheless, we are able to hope. S.H.I.E.L.D. has set the stage for each of them to probably be again sooner or later in the remainder of Season 5.
