Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Doles Out Dollhouse Easter Eggs (and Agent Carter Clues?)

The season 2 premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t the first time the series has dished out references to the departed Whedon series Dollhouse.

Season One’s “Tahiti” Agent Coulson asked if he fell asleep, to which a mysterious woman responded, “for a little while”. This routine made us wonder if Coulson is a doll (this theory was later disproved). Dollhouse-eque behaviour has popped up elsewhere in the MCU with the treatment of Bucky Barns in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. As  he is wiped, stored, and brought back for missions time after time the scenario has echos of Dollhouse.

“Shadows” made a point to use “Sierra” and “Victor” as part of Talbot’s security access code, shouted through radio communications loudly and repeatedly, in case we didn’t catch it the first time. Now, this carries extra resonance as Reed Diamond, a Dollhouse alum, guest starred in the episode as Daniel Whitehall and is shaping up to be the big bad of the season.

Reed’s character showed up in the main SHIELD timeline and in the cold-open in 1945 as an enemy of Agent Carter and the Howling Commandos. Since fellow Dollhouse alum Enver Gjokaj has been cast as Agent Daniel Sousa on Agent Carter, could this be a hint that Reed Diamond will be appearing there as well?

And this is complete fantasy casting at the moment, but Agent Carter has yet to fill in it’s female roles. With “Sierra” called out with “Victor” could it be a hint that we’ll be seeing Dichen Lachman (who played Sierra on Dollhouse) join the cast?

What do you think – are we digging a little too deep into the call-outs? Would you love to see a Dollhouse reunion on Agent Carter?

  1. I like where this could be headed… Dichen Lachman has been announced as playing “young woman” in Agents of SHIELD season 2 episode 8, “The Things We Bury.” The episode also guest stars Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter. Perhaps Dichen’s character will cross over to the Agent Carter series and share screen time with Enver Gjokaj!
