(CBR) As “Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” heads into the final episodes of its freshman season, even some of the most critical viewers appear to have been impressed with the most recent run of episodes, which led up to and have spun out from the Marvel Cinematic Universe game-changing events of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” So when CBR News ran into Clark Gregg while out and about in Hollywood this week, we took the opportunity to discuss the last several weeks' developments — and ask for a little insight into the episodes yet to air.
Viewers have been happy with the show's recent run of twists and turns, and no one's been more pleased with the fan reaction than Agent Coulson himself. Gregg expresses the excitement he and the rest of the cast are feeling now that the series' long game is coming into sharp focus, the ripple effect of “The Winter Soldier,” a hint of things to come, his Marvel gateway drug and whether the real-life Mrs. Gregg — “Dirty Dancing” star Jennifer Grey — may one day suit up for “S.H.I.E.L.D.”
CBR: I've got to say, last week was another great episode among a steady string of several. Did you guys feel like you were hitting a certain groove at some point? Were you feeling it kick into another gear as it was happening?
