Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread
Well, the writer sort of jumps the gun there in declaring that Hand is definitively the Clairvoyant, unless he left something out of the article.
I'll grant that the showrunners are certainly trying to imply that she's the Clairvoyant with that cut-off scene by having her give the orders to kill everyone but Coulsen because, as she says, "he's mine", but it could just as easily be another red herring like the guy in the wheelchair, and she just works for the Clairvoyant.
It's certainly a strong possibility that she's the Clairvoyant, and her inside knowledge of SHIELD would allow her to have what would appear to someone who didn't know the Clairvoyant's identity as a traitor be a precognitive grasp of their upcoming operations. It would also fit with the schism inside SHIELD that's already been building with Coulsen and will continue and escalate in CA:TWS. The hints that the Clairvoyant was a man (unless I'm misremembering) were attempts at hiding her identity, and the "psychic predictions" were simply a cover for why she could keep having advanced knowledge of SHIELD's every move.
So, I think there's a strong chance it's her, but if the article's details are accurate and nothing was left out, that's not definitive.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
