"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is getting another dose of Asgardian: Actress Jaimie Alexander is set to reprise her role as Lady Sif on the ABC series.
This will mark the "Thor" actress's second appearance on "S.H.I.E.L.D.," and according to TV Insider, things will be different for Sif this time around. The synopsis, per TV Insider:
Sif comes to Earth on an undercover mission and has a bodyslamming showdown with a foe whose superpowers are equal to her own. (Marvel is keeping the baddie's identity hush-hush.) 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.
According to "S.H.I.E.L.D." executive producer Jeffrey Bell, that confusion will make for interesting interactions between Sif and the rest of the series's regulars.
"Sif has no idea who Thor is or that she serves a king, and we're going to have fun with that," Bell told TV Insider. "It'll give us some much-needed humor in a season that's been full of betrayal and death. Sif can't even recall who she came here from Asgard to stop, but Agent Coulson [Clark Gregg] and his team will try to help her figure all that out."
Bell added that Sif still has her childhood memories intact, and will use her knowledge of the universe at large to assist the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.
"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." returns from hiatus on March 3. Alexander's appearance is slated for the following week's episode.
