MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. – “Code Yellow” – Yo-Yo and Keller take things public; parasitic aliens threaten the human race; and someone really needs boba on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” airing FRIDAY, MAY 31 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network. (ABC/Mitch Haaseth)

AGENTS OF SHIELD has had its share of fun guest stars over the course of the series, but the Friday, May 31 episode has a pretty special appearance: SHIELD co-creator/co-showrunner Maurissa Tancharoen.

Tancharoen—who previously appeared in a number of projects, including DOLLHOUSE and DR. HORRIBLE’S SING-ALONG BLOG—plays Sequoia, an influencer whose storyline intersects with Deke (Jeff Ward).

“It was amazing [to work with her in ‘Code Yellow’],” Ward told reporters. “Maurissa is so awesome. She’s such an amazing boss to work with and for. To have her on set, in front of the camera with us, figuring it out as we went along, it was a really cool experience. A) She’s a very fun actor to play with, but B) because she’s also the boss. It was such a weird, funny thing.”

“It was funny, because, usually, you’ll be figuring something out and the director is there and the writer of that episode is there…and the writer and the director have a certain amount of authority,” he continued. “So when all of a sudden Maurissa is an actor in the scene, we’ll be like, ‘Well, this should be like this,’ and the writer will be like, ‘Yes? Can I say that?’ She killed it. [Our characters] have a very fun rapport.”

Added Clark Gregg: “A lot of us have been quietly waiting and hoping that Maurissa would step to this side of the camera. She has an incredible background. She’s been a dancer in Michael Jackson videos. A successful musician, a successful actor, and now a really successful writer; she can do anything. She’s been a mom, on top of that, to the cutest child in the world. It was really a thrill for us getting her out there.”

“Code Yellow” sheds more light into what Deke has been up to while he’s been off-screen—and puts him on a collision path with Gregg’s new character, Sarge.

“It’s the first time we see Sarge play along with [the idea he is] this person everyone thinks he is,” Gregg said. “But it’s just so he can find out other ways to kill people.”

“Some of my favorite scenes to film [this season] were between Sarge and Deke, when they see each other for the first time,” Ward added.
