Geoffrey Colo relives the iconic moments from Season 2!

As we inch closer to the landmark 100th episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” we continue to commemorate the series with the “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Road to 100” art program.

We previously spotlighted Season 1 with an art piece by Dale Keown. Marvel.com had the opportunity to reflect on Season 2 and the Season 2 art piece below from artist Daniel Acuña with Geoffrey Colo, Transmedia Producer at Marvel TV.

‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Road to 100’ Season 2 art by Daniel Acuña

Marvel.com: Daniel Acuña highlights several noteworthy scenes of the second season in the art above. Can you share the significance of each scene depicted?

Geoffrey Colo: These four images represent key, life-changing moments for our S.H.I.E.L.D. characters in Season 2. Acuña did an amazing job at capturing them. I particularly love the badass Coulson profile.

We start at the top left with an image from the aptly-titled episode, “The Writing on the Wall.” Curse that damn memory machine for driving Coulson to the brink of madness, but he did finally unlock the meaning behind his bizarre alien writing. It’s a city. You know what that means. Road trip!

Bottom left, Skye breaks free from her Inhuman cocoon. It’s the birth of Quake and, for me, one of the most iconic moments of the series.

At the center, we have our team, accompanied by the alt S.H.I.E.L.D. logo. The “real” S.H.I.E.L.D., headed by Robert Gonzales, and backed by Bobbi and Mack was philosophically opposed to Coulson’s team who believed that Inhumans should be embraced, instead of feared. Can’t we all just get along?

In our final image, bottom right, May clutches the lifeless body of Katya, an Inhuman girl May was forced to kill in the line of duty. This heartbreaking flashback episode revealed the dark, hidden truth behind May’s infamous nickname, The Cavalry. Definitely one of my faves.

Marvel.com: You’ve been part of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” early on starting with Season 2. What has it been like brining the series to life, and seeing where we are today?

Geoffrey Colo: Watching the evolution from script to screen on a weekly basis is the most enjoyable part of my job. We have such a dedicated team of producers and writers, and a cast and crew who always go above and beyond. I’m just honored to be part of it all.

Marvel.com: That’s so incredible! We can’t talk about S.H.I.E.L.D. without mentioning the fans.

Geoffrey Colo: It’s always rewarding when the show you work on has such a rabid fan base. Truth be told, we’re all Marvel super fans ourselves. So, the same things our fans geek out over, we do as well. The fact that we’re also able to connect with them directly at Comic-Con and other events, makes it even more special.

Marvel.com: Reflecting on Season 2, are there other key moments you’d like to spotlight on how they impacted the S.H.I.E.L.D. team and series?

Geoffrey Colo: There are so many more moments to spotlight. Don’t touch the Obelisk. Hello Mockingbird. Goodbye Tripp. Hunter joins S.H.I.E.L.D. Welcome to Afterlife. You’re killing me Ward. Deathlok to the rescue. Daisy has a daddy. Coulson loses an arm. Simmons meets the monolith.

Season Five will return Friday, March 2. Don’t miss the 100th episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will air Friday, March 9 at 9|8c on ABC!

See how the Inhumans have been a part 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' from the beginning!

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Throwback Thursday looks back at how the last five years of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” influenced this recent episodes. 

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” has always incorporated deep references to the Marvel Universe, and the Inhumans have been prevalent throughout the series. During the Kree-Skrull War, the Kree began experimenting on humans by splicing human DNA with their own, which resulted in a powerful race of mutants who came to be known as the Inhumans. After being exposed to Terrigen Mist, the Inhumans go through Terrigenesis which gives them strange and unimaginable powers.

Season 2 introduces the Inhumans to the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. After an encounter with the Inhuman Lincoln, Skye learns more about her true ancestry and that her birth name is Daisy. After being exposed to the Terrigen Mist, her powers are revealed and she becomes Quake. Season 3 is when Daisy assembles a team of Inhumans, known as Secret Warriors—Lincoln Campbell who had the ability to manipulate the electrical charge in molecules, Joey Gutierrez who could manipulate metal, and Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez—to fight against HYDRA.

Inhumans are a key part in Season 5, with the Kree playing a major role in the storyline. It revealed the return of Robin Hinton, an Inhuman we first meet as a young girl back in Season 3 finale “Accession.” It was then that Daisy handed Robin a wooden bird, carved by her father Charles Hinton—also an Inhuman—as she promised Charles she would protect his family.

Flash forward to this season (Episode 5 “Rewind”), Fitz is surprised to see the young girl once again, this time having recently undergone Terrigenesis. Now known as The Seer, Robin prophesied the Earth’s destruction. In Episode 8 “The Last Day,” Robin resurfaces once again, this time 74 years in the future as an elderly woman. Upon her deathbed, Robin reveals to May that Flint, the Inhuman, will be their savior.

Just what did Robin’s vision mean? After being exposed to Terrigen crystals in Episode 6 “Fun & Games,” Flint takes the advice of Mack, and in the end decides to use his powers to protect people. Which leads us to this week’s episode, “Past Life,” Flint is our agents last hope to return home. Can Flint’s Inhuman powers reconstruct the monolith? Tune in to “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” on Fridays at 9:00 PM ET on ABC!

Watch Gregg's 'Mini Marvel Movie' this Friday on ABC at 9|8c!

As we near the 100th episode, another “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” milestone is on the horizon. Clark Gregg, aka Agent Phil Coulson, will his “S.H.I.E.L.D” and Marvel Cinematic Universe debut this Friday in a brand new episode.

The talented star took time to talk to Marvel.com about directing his very own “mini Marvel movie” in episode 506 titled “Fun & Games.”

Marvel.com: Hi Clark, I know the idea of you directing an episode was floated or offered in past seasons by EPs Jed and Mo. What drew you to this season or story arc that made you feel now was the right time for your ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ directorial debut?

Clark Gregg: It just felt so daunting. I’m not sure if, in the past, they really…. They just asked, “What do you think? Is this something you want to do?” I said, “I’m not sure I do.”

I find the process of just doing my work pretty all-consuming for the most part. The idea that I would be prepping and acting during one episode, directing and acting during another episode, and editing and acting during a third episode…. You’re talking about five weeks of double duty. The thought was daunting.

They finally pushed a little bit at this season. It seemed like time. I guess, honestly, I started going, “Oh, stop being such a chicken. You’ll be fine.” It had been so different from what I’ve done. It’s weird to step outside of your comfort zone around family. It was a silly thing to be so cognizant about. It ended up being, everyone was so incredible in terms of the way they everyone showed up and supported me. I was really moved.

Marvel.com: Speaking of the difficulties of performing doing double duty, did your cast mates and close friends simplify the process since you knew exactly what you need to draw from their performances?

Clark Gregg: Well, yes and no. Yes, in that I certainly had a shorthand with them about what we want to try to do, ways the script could give us a chance to push us into new territory. They all also have deep and interesting ideas that helped me. I got to play a different role and dig in together and collaborate with them in a way someone who isn’t….

I didn’t see this coming, but someone who isn’t a fellow cast member might not as easily be able to. It’s two actors agreeing to let one of the actors also direct and try to explore together the moments of the scene. That’s very unusual. One by one, everybody came to me and said, “I’m in. What do you want to do? Let’s try it.” I was really moved by that.

Also, I was blown away to see what a lot of the other departments I don’t get to work with, the amazing work they do — from the set deck to the props to all the preparation that goes into every episode.

Marvel.com: TV is very different from film. You’ve written screenplays. You’ve produced and directed features. Is TV directing something you’d want to do more of in the future?

Clark Gregg: Yeah, in the right context, there were a lot of things that were particularly rewarding. I got to do some incredible, big moments that we’ve been waiting for all season. Or in the case of some of these moments, for four seasons. That was fun! I don’t want to do it in general, but there were things about it that were fun to do on my [episode] that I didn’t necessarily foresee how rewarding it would be. I came away thinking, “What was I waiting on? That was really cool and I hope I get to do it again some time.”

Marvel.com: This episode in particular was extremely dynamic. Did you feel comfortable handling the action, the intense moments I can’t list, the martial arts, and the romance this whole episode entailed?

Clark Gregg: On the one hand, I’ve been watching. I work with a lot of the directors. I’ve worked with the action unit that Garry Brown, Tanner and those guys run. For 100 episodes, I’ve got a lot of experience, and I’ve done it from the inside. I had a lot of bonuses going in. That said, they’ve got such an incredible ability, everyone from the Visual Effects department to the Stunts, I’ve talked about the actors. In a big episode, and we’ve had big episodes before like this, they all know how to do it in a way that puts the value on the screen quickly.

They all made this very easy for me. They were able to take the ideas that I had, the things I had always wanted to try, if I ever got to direct one, and make it fit in the mold of what they do effortlessly.

Marvel.com: With sci-fi element of this season taking our agents and the show in such a new direction and as we near the 100th episode, has there been anything you had always wanted to see happen on the show – not just storyline, but perhaps something visual or tone-wise – that you’d like to see ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ pursue?

Clark Gregg: Every time I think of something I want to see them do, it’s in the next script. It’s a little weird. I’ve said it before, but I never thought, when we started this 103 episodes ago, that I was going to get to do five or six different shows. They were completely reinvented; we got to do pods, and have LMDS and then here’s Ghost Rider. And now we’re in a sci-fi movie that I always wanted to be in. They’ve taken these groups of characters and bringing them in all these different pockets of the Marvel Universe that the movies haven’t explored necessarily, and using characters that’s just outside the field of vision of most cinematic fans. Milking every bit of it, and then BAM! tearing it all apart. Now we’re somewhere in space. As Henry’s character says in the first episode [of this season], “Well, it’s the one thing we haven’t done yet.” But it’s not! They’re going to come up with something else; I don’t know what it will be yet.

Marvel.com: Lastly, you’ve been such a consistent part of the Marvel Universe. What have some of the most surprising responses you’ve gotten to being Coulson?

Clark Gregg: The fact that Coulson called on it all from the start, a guy in an ill-fitting suit chasing Gwyneth Paltrow around in “Iron Man.” The fact that fans have connected with this guy makes a lot of sense in retrospect because he’s them – he’s their avatar. The way, the depth, and the duration in which the fans connected with him, they wouldn’t let him die. There’s just something about who he is and what he stands for that resonates, and continues to resonates, in a way I have trouble making sense of.

I went to do press for our European fans over the break in Portugal, and to see this huge mob of Portuguese and Spanish fans who want to talk about the Kree and what Kasius is thinking. Then to go to Italy, I was in a canal in Venice and all these tourists hanging over the bridge calling out in their languages “Phil! Phil!” I was like, “God, there’s something about this guy that people really connect to. It’s a real gift.
