TVInsider reports that Thor’s Lady Sif will return to ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The episode, which will air on March 10th, will feature the return of Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander), who last appeared in the episode “Yes Men,” the 15th episode of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s first season.
According to the report, Lady Sif has returned to Earth on an undercover mission and has “a bodyslamming showdown with a foe whose superpowers are equal to her own.” Footage of the epic clash, which takes place on the coast of Portugal, becomes big news on social media, prompting the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to rush to the scene to investigate. Not only do they find Sif without her lusty trademark armor, but she has also lost her short-term memory. This causes problems for S.H.I.E.L.D., as the Goddess of War has no recollection of who Thor is or why she has been sent to Earth. According to says S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeffrey Bell, “It’ll give us some much-needed humor in a season that’s been full of betrayal and death.”
Jaimie Alexander teased this photo on the set of S.H.I.E.L.D. via her WhoSay account, which matches the description that she lacks her armor:
It’s also reported that Lady Sif will not completely lose her memories; she will retain knowledge of her childhood, as well as knowledge that she is Asgardian.
While it’s convenient for the writers of S.H.I.E.L.D. that Sif doesn’t lose all her memories, it’s a huge missed opportunity. Who wouldn’t want to see Lady Sif, with no knowledge of her otherworldly origins, assume she is mortal and have humorous moments discovering her superhuman strength by accident?
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns from its Winter hiatus March 3rd.
