In a recent interview with Larry King, Actor Clark Gregg makes some fairly interesting comments in regards to Agent Coulson’s resurrection post The Avengers and pre Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
“What’s the deal with Tahiti. Tahiti’s a magical place. I keep saying that… it’s where I went to recover after being impaled and as I say in the pilot, it was a spectacular experience, I had a beautiful physical therapist and I read Travis McGee novels all day. But every time someone mentions it lately I seem to go into post traumatic stress so I think there’s a little more to Tahiti than meets the eye. There’s a much darker, more interesting story there. Something much more magical has gone on to bring this guy back to life.”
“I know more than the audience, but less than the writers.There’s plenty they haven’t… I know a little bit, I have some hints, know from where Joss told me roughly where we’re headed.”
While right now the biggest theories involve either Cloning or Coulson being a “Life Model Decoy,” his interesting choice of the word “magical” seems to be giving fans a whole new idea to peruse.
