‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’ Theory: May is Skye’s Mother
Some of you are probably calling me cray right now, but hear me out on my theory first.
This is an idea that came to me after watching the most recent episode of ‘AOS.’ We already know that May was there when Skye was an infant, and while it hasn’t been said it’s been implied that she knows more than she lets on.
So why did this idea pop into my head? It was when Mockingbird asked her if she ever talks to her ex-husband. Up until now we didn’t even know that May was married in the past. Perhaps she was married to the character being played by Kyle MacLaughlin, who is Skye’s father.
Skye’s father has an awful lot of knowledge about S.H.I.E.L.D. type stuff. He’s clearly a scientist, so maybe at one point in time he worked for the agency. If not directly, maybe a contract. He clearly has a lot of strength, possible experiment gone wrong that gave him powers of some sort. Maybe he’s an Inhuman? Maybe he was one of the Cree experiments, but got away from them? Who knows, but that would explain the whole Skye is an alien thought that Coulson has.
Back to my theory about May being Skye’s mother.
May was very much against bringing Skye on board. Maybe it was that she didn’t trust her, or that she didn’t feel she was experienced enough to be part of the team, May didn’t want anything to do with Skye. Looking back on it, I think she was protecting her. I’m not sure Coulson knows if May is possibly Skye’s mother, or if he just thinks that she is trying to protect the infant she brought out of harms way all those years ago.
It wouldn’t surprise me if this turned out to be a real possibility, but as of right now it’s just my theory.
