The reveal of Hydra, and Grant Ward’s subsequent betrayal, was one of the most game changing moments of the television season. So how do you keep the momentum going for season two, when you’ve already dropped one of the biggest head-spinning twists on your viewers?

According to executive producer Jeff Bell and Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb, the answer is simple: rely on the characters you’ve spent 22 episodes introducing to your audience.

“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. did not have the benefit of 50 or 75 years of characters that are running around…the fact that people are still talking about what happened to Ward, and are curious about what is happening to FitzSimmons…that means that you’re in,” said Loeb when he spoke with us at Comic Con. “And that’s fantastic that we’re able to build the Marvel universe out that much further.”

As for that reveal that we would be seeing Mockingbird? Bell and Loeb were tight-lipped about if a certain arching Avenger would be making a cameo, but did share their hope for other comic characters to join the show.
