Lance Hunter, the mercenary turned S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who debuted in Season 2 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as the ex-husband of Bobbi Morse will return to the show!
Entertainment Weekly confirmed Nick Blood who portrays Lance Hunter will return for Season 5. ABC is keeping the details of Hunter’s return close to the chest.
At the end of Season 3, both Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter were disavowed by S.H.I.E.L.D. after a botched operation in Russia. In order for them to survive, Morse and Hunter must never work for the U.S. government again.
Blood and Adrianne Palicki who plays Bobbi Morse planned to take leading roles in an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off Most Wanted. However, ABC passed on the show leaving Blood and Palicki’s characters in limbo.
It’s unclear how Blood’s return as Hunter will be explained or what role he will actually play in the upcoming Season 5, but he’s coming back.
How do you think they will utilize Lance Hunter in Season 5? And where do you think he has been? And what has he been doing?
