In the upcoming episode titled "Emancipation," it seems that Coulson (Clark Gregg) will voice his support to Captain America's protest against Sokovia Accords and hence, will side with Team Cap.
CLICK HERE to watch why Coulson is against the Sokovia Accords and whether he and his team members will face any threat for not accepting it.
Since "Agents of SHIELD" began airing in 2012, it has always been closely associated with the events happening in Marvel Cinematic Universe's (MCU) movies. Hence, it doesn't come as a surprise to the fans when Coulson was shown to struggle choosing sides between Captain America and Iron Man in the promo of "Emancipation."
The trailer shows Coulson having a conversation with General Talbot (Adrian Pasdar) where Talbot urges Coulson to agree with Sokovia Accords that is a major plot element in MCU's latest instalment "Captain America: Civil War."
The Accords propose bringing SHIELD under the government and mandatory registration of all the superheroes. However, it would mean that Inhumans will also have to be registered under it and Coulson is against this proposal. He tells Talbot that SHIELD and none of the Inhumans falls under the jurisdiction of any government and he would like to keep it this way.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gregg said: "The Sokovia Accords have their own specific purpose within Civil War having to do with the powered people that we've met in The Avengers. It's representative of how our show functions within the Marvel Universe, in some ways, in that it's all connected.
"That ripples through our show because suddenly all these people who are Inhumans in our corner of the universe, they're all subjected to the Sokovia Accords. That dilemma rises up in our show about the people who feel Inhumans should be registered and those who feel that's a first step to them being sequestered, imprisoned, and exterminated."
According to Cinema Blend, though Talbot insists that the Avengers have already signed the Accords, Coulson pointed to him that not all of them are in support of it, which clearly states that he is siding with Steve Rogers/Captain America's team.
Whether his decision will affect his team members, the Inhumans and the rest of SHIELD or not, will be seen once the episode airs.
