So my wife has a theory about Skye. The whole reason Skye joined up with our intrepid group of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents is because she wants to find out what happen to her parents and she runs into documents redacted S.H.I.E.L.D. whenever she gets close.
So what if Skye’s real parents are Agent Phil Coulson and Agent Melinda May? The people who she thinks were her parents were just the people who adopted her and they were killed by someone who knew of Skye’s real parentage?
The evidence is admittedly pretty circumstantial:
May and Coulson obviously have a history together, possibly a sexual history based off of May’s seemingly flirtatious comments in The Girl In The Flower Dress.
Coulson was awfully quick to recruit Skye in the Pilot. Similarly, he was pretty insistent that May join the team.
Chloe Bennet, the actress who plays Skye, is half-Chinese and half-Jewish.
Personally, I am still not convinced of this theory. I just wanted to get it on the record though. If it turns out to be true I am declaring my wife a genius!
