Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) were part of the Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD family for two seasons, with Bobbi debuting as a triple agent and Lance joining in as her nearly clueless mercenary ex-husband.

Bobbi and Lance sacrificed their career in espionage to save their teammates and were honored with a “spy’s goodbye” from Coulson’s team. That wasn’t supposed to be the end for them. Palicki and Blood were meant to reprise their characters in the Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD spinoff titled Marvel Most Wanted.

ABC passed on Most Wanted. Now fans wonder if Bobbi and Lance could be headed by to Agents of SHIELD. According to the showrunners, probably not.

“One can only dream,” Agents of SHIELD executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen tells Entertainment Weekly. “That’s always on our minds.”


“Once an agent, always an agent, so it’s always out there in the ether,” executive producer Jed Whedon adds. “But right now we’re taking a breather.”

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC. In the next episode, “Hot Potato Soup,” Agents Sam and Billy Koenig (Patton Oswalt) are hunted down to get at the Darkhold book, and only Coulson and the team can save them before the clock ticks out.

“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. In the aftermath of their journey to another planet, Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the team were driven more than ever to put an end to the Hydra organization. Little did they know that they were up against the deadliest threat they’ve ever faced – an extremely powerful Inhuman, Hive, who was transported back from Maveth in the body of their worst enemy, Grant Ward. The team was able to thwart and kill Hive and take down Hydra, but they are all still mourning the death of fellow agent and Inhuman, Lincoln Campbell.”
