Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has assembled a number of gifted friends and foes for its second season. And with the recently released plot details for the upcoming season’s third episode, Phil Coulson and his team will also be hunting down a familiar foe.
In episode three, titled “Making Friends and Influencing People,” the S.H.I.E.L.D. team will attempt to track down Donnie Gill, a former S.H.I.E.L.D. student with freezing powers first seen in season one’s “Seeds.” Gill goes by the appropriate moniker Blizzard in Marvel comics, and his latest appearance may well continue to push him toward that identity. Here’s the official plot straight from Marvel: “Coulson and his team race against HYDRA to get to Donnie Gill—a dangerous gifted with the ability to freeze objects—while Simmons is caught in the crossfire.”
Gill is played by Dylan Minnette, who also played President Fitzgerald Grant’s son Jerry Jr. on the last season of Scandal. Minnette may have more time to grow into his ice powers, however, as—spoiler—the young Grant was poisoned and died on the Scandal season finale.
