A new sneak peek from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 1, episode 5 casts a few clouds across our perception of Skye.
Agent Coulson’s team seemed to finally be gelling last week, but a new sneak peek from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 1, episode 5 hints that certain loyalties are still up in the air.
The new clip from the episode, titled “Girl in the Flower Dress,” features an intense chase scene – and ends on the moment that fans of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have already learned to dread.
The clip begins with Skye, Ward, and Coulson tracking down a man named Miles (Austin Nichols). Miles escapes in a car after Ward spots him, and Coulson follows in a S.H.I.E.L.D. jeep. Coulson almost catches up, but Miles activates a “gridlock protocol” from his phone and races away, leaving the “suit” jammed in traffic.
Miles enters a room, where Skye is waiting for him (GASP!). She rails on him, saying that he could have “ruined everything.” But their argument is stillborn when Miles says that he has missed her, and they begin to kiss passionately.
Because that’s just what traitory traitors do.
Even though the promo for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 1, episode 5 had indicated that Skye’s loyalties would come into question this week, we were surprised to see such a distinct change in her character. The official summary for “Girl in the Flower Dress” is also pretty calm on the subject.
An elusive girl in a flower dress may hold the key to the mystery that brings Coulson and team to Asia to rescue a young man with an unusual and dangerous power. Meanwhile, Skye has a secret that jeopardizes her relationship with the team right when they need her most.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 1, episode 5, “Girl In The Flower Dress,” will air on Tuesday, Oct. 22 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
