It’s been announced that Kyle MacLachlan will be joining season two of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and considering how closely everything Marvel-plot-related is guarded, the huge spoilery nature of his role is surprising. If you don’t want to know the details, turn back now. For everyone else, here’s a picture of Clark Gregg:

Okay, I think we’re safe. So, yes, Kyle MacLachlan will be joining the show, and according to TVLine, he’ll be playing Skye’s father. Now, I have to admit I stopped watching around episode five, but even then, a major portion of the plot revolved around Skye trying to find her parents and Coulson shutting that down for super mysterious reasons. Probably, we see now, reasons related Laura Palmer. Or maybe just pie.
I’ve been saying I’m going to give the show another shot. Patton Oswalt got me right up to that point, now I think this may have pushed me over.
