Waiting to Impress Me:
Grant: He IS SHIELD but Coulson had him interrogated?
Skye: So wait, she really wasn't SHIELD?
I think that that was an attempt to gain Skye's trust and knock Grants attitude down a bit.

As for Skye being SHIELD, obviously she will be joining the team. Hardly the first time MCU SHIELD has recruited a former threat/annoyance into the fold. Both Natasha Romanov and the couple from "Item 47" were recruited by agents sent to take them down.

So if Skye really wasn't SHIELD she goes from 'nobody' to Level 8 clearance?? Huh?
"Nobody's nobody."--Phil Coulson
Actually, I think the fact that she's literally "nobody" is exactly why Coulson wants her on the team--
"We don't know anything about her. Do you appreciate how often that happens? It never happens." --Phil Coulson
Someone with that level of skill, as it was implied that she completely erased herself from the net, is someone Coulson can use. Also, she represents a mystery-- why would someone with that much skill, who could probably use those skills to make a mint, be living an anonymous life out of a van? I think, in the end, she is going to be revealed to be far from "nobody".
