HYDRAIf you couldn’t tell by the title and the article’s banner, there are going to be some spoilers for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Captain America: The Winter Soldier here. If you haven’t seen the movie, or last night’s episode of S.H.I.E.L.D., then you might want to turn back now. There are many fine articles on this site from today you can check out instead. If you keep reading, I assume we’re all good to go.

Last night’s episode of S.H.I.E.L.D., Turn, Turn, Turn, featured many shocking reveals. Victoria Hand wasn’t the Clairvoyant or even evil, Hydra had completely taken over, Garrett (Bill Paxton) was in fact the Clairvoyant, and Agent Ward is a traitor (possibly). In light of those shocking events, Marvel has released a special interview with Agent Ward himself, Brett Dalton, as well as a special behind the scenes featurette from the rest of the cast.

wardSpeaking with Marvel.Com about his act of betrayal, and after talking about how he learned he would be a traitor from the writers and how Ward has to keep his emotions in check, Dalton said it’s much more fun to play the villain. The majority of his scenes for the remained of the season will involve Bill Paxton, obviously. When asked about how his relationships with Coulson‘s team (read that as Skye) will effect him now that he’s back with Garrett, Dalton teased:

Yeah, try as he might to keep those things in check, I think his feelings–or certain feelings–might have crept up and surprised him. When you’re living, eating, and on missions with people, you become part of that family unit. I think that it probably gets harder and harder to turn that off. I mean I couldn’t imagine doing that myself. Being an embedded spy has to be one of the most difficult jobs I could imagine. Because you have to wear one mask, and not forget about your job, your duty, at the same time. You have to let your guard down in a way, because they need to trust you. But it’s a false sense of letting your guard down. But my loyalty to Garrett wins out. So I have to follow his orders and I have to make some difficult decisions.
I think Garrett offered him a [purpose]. He’s someone that’s always felt [like he was overlooked], and he’s somebody who doesn’t always know what to say but is eager to speak, [yet] doesn’t feel like anybody’s listening or anybody cares.

Dalton covered a lot of ground, and you can read everything he had to say about Ward‘s future and how he’s coping with being a villain by clicking here. While Ward provide the biggest shock of the episode, the rest of the cast run down some of the other reveals and what they mean for the show’s final 5 episodes. You can watch that below.
