'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7: Will Daisy be erased from the timeline? Here's a thread that could change it all
'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7 has already cost the life of one beloved character with the death of Enoch (Joel Stoffer) in Episode 9. Now the life of Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) could be in danger and it's probably been the Chronicoms' plan all along.
In Episode 10 'Stolen', the team is going to be going up against Nathaniel Malick (Thomas E Sullivan) and his army of anarchist inhumans. Their mission right now is to stop Malick and protect Jiaying (Dichen Lachman), Daisy's mother, but that last part could get tricky. What we need to remember about Malick is that he's essentially just a pawn being controlled by the Chronicom Sybil (Tamara Taylor). While the reason he's attacking Afterlife is to secure more powers for himself, Sybil is the one that directed him there in the first place.
There's a very real possibility that this whole thing has just been a charade to hide Sybil's true motivations: to prevent Daisy's birth and erase her from the timeline. And if Daisy is gone, the world ends. Since her introduction as the hacker Skye in Season 1, Daisy has gone on to significantly influence many major events in the timeline. Without her, SHIELD would have fallen apart or failed long before and that makes her one of the most important lynchpins of the timeline.
The Chronicoms have been attempting to pull certain "threads" all season, events of people who are integral to the timeline. And no one is more integral to the timeline of the show than Daisy. Of course, if they do kill Jiaying and prevent Daisy's birth, that doesn't mean she will just fade away into nothingness. As far as we know, time travel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe works by sending people into an alternate timeline that's almost exactly the same as the one they came from.
So if Jiaying is killed, it might not cause Daisy to disappear but it will create a new timeline where SHIELD fell and the Chronicoms managed to take over the Earth. And that's all Sybil needs to chalk up another victory in the name of her robotic race.
'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7 airs on Wednesdays at 10 pm ET on ABC.
