Chloe Bennet Talks Quake's Rogue Side, Vigilantism, Independence, And Her Journey

Chloe Bennet, star of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., will be returning as Daisy Johnson, Quake, for the show's fourth season but in a different way as her character has gone to the rogue side of heroism. Bennet had an interview with The Hollywood Reporter where she discussed some things to come for the show, like how long Daisy will stay rogue, Quake's more vigilante side, and some other intriguing things.

Performing the classic Quake pose and more:
It was amazing. I love that it all stems from this hurt that she's going through. It's not necessarily her being this great superhero all of a sudden. She really becomes Quake because of the past she's had and the loss she's dealing with. It's not perfect. That's why Marvel resonates with so many people, the level of imperfection that these so-called superheroes have. She becomes Quake because she goes rogue, because every time she gets close to someone they die. Her mom tried to kill her and her dad had to kill her mom and her first boyfriend was like a Nazi – she's had a rough go these past couple of years. Having her boyfriend Lincoln sacrifice himself for her when she was going to do it for him and die in that heroic, tragic way while talking to her, that was the straw that broke the camel's back. Her way of protecting the people that she cares about is really by distancing herself from them and not letting anyone else get close to her. In her mind, that's her way of showing love to the people she cares about.

Quake's longevity of being rogue:
I don't think it will last very long, but we're on episode three and I've had some of the best days I've ever had shooting these scenes. I'm doing some of the most crazy stunts I've ever done. It's laced with all this pain and resentment. She's seeking penance for the loss that she feels responsible for.
Vigilante justice is what Quake is doing:
If you paused the TV and really looked closely at what those articles are saying about what she was doing, yes there happened to be some damage, collapsed bridges or physical damage to different cities, but always, magically, no one gets hurt. Two people were saved or one person was saved. If you look closely, Daisy isn't as much of a threat but more of some sort of vigilante. Anyone who knows this character knows how much empathy she has. She cares for people so deeply that it's actually to her detriment. It's her downfall. I think that's also her most badass trait, how much she's willing to sacrifice for other people and that doesn't go away no matter how much eyeliner she wears. She still has a heart of gold and wants the best for people and wants to help. If that would ever go away, then I'm done with this show. [Laughs] I'm leaving!

Quake having more independence as she is more distant of SHIELD: 
There's a little bit of season one of Daisy that's creeping in, especially in her choice of vehicles. It's a throwback to season one. But the reason she's so independent this season is for all the wrong reasons this time around, unfortunately. She's trying really hard and I know her intentions are to do right by her team by distancing herself from them but she's actually hurting them and I don't think she's making the right decisions. Her independence is coming from a certain sadness and she's running from something instead of being truly independent in this case. I'd like to see her resolve that.
Quake's journey for the show's fourth season:
It's about her emotional resilience and figuring out how to come back after dealing with such incredible loss. Also dealing with having these incredible powers and figuring out what to do with them. It goes back to my favourite line from the series in the pilot when Daisy says to Mike [J. August Richards], "With great power comes a lot of weird crap that you are not prepared to deal with." That line has really carried through the entire show and especially this season for Daisy. She can do all these amazing things but can she heal herself emotionally and move forward after all she's been through? Can she find peace in this family she has as SHIELD? I'd like to see her find emotional stability this season. It probably won't happen though.

In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimatized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director (Jason O’Mara) to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack (Henry Simmons), and together they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of Enhanced people, aka Inhumans. They have been trying to track down and capture Daisy (Chloe Bennet), aka Quake, who has gone rogue in an attempt to atone for sins from the past.  But with the world believing that Daisy is a dangerous outlaw who has taken down banks and bridges, the new Director has no qualms about taking her down for good.  Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant.

Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna) will roar into the lives of Agent Coulson and the team as a junkyard mechanic who can turn on a dime into the terrifying Ghost Rider. Will Robbie be a friend or foe to S.H.I.E.L.D. – as well as the world, itself?  Meanwhile, Fitz discovers that socially awkward genius and friend Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) has started putting the finishing touches on a new, secret invention.


 “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” returns with a vengeance for the fourth exciting season in an all new time period, Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. ET.
