One of the most exciting casting announcements for the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was Adrianne Palicki’s guest role as the superhero Mockingbird. Like Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye—a character whose comics counterpart actually has a relationship with her—Mockingbird isn’t so much a superpowered demigod as she is a highly trained S.H.I.E.L.D. operative. But before Palicki can become Mockingbird, she’ll first have to appear as Bobbi Morse.
Courtesy of ABC, here’s your first look at Palicki as Bobbi Morse, the head of Hydra Security and the future Mockingbird. But will she be friend or foe to Coulson and S.H.I.E.L.D.? The Mockingbird part suggests friend, but the Hydra part…things might get complicated.
Palicki will appear as Bobbi Morse in the October 21 episode, “A Hen in the Wolf House.”
