'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Star Brett Dalton Weighs in on That Explosive Finale and Why He Thinks #HiveSurvives

Here we go again!

After a nail-biting two-hour finale, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finally revealed which team member met their end on Tuesday, as Lincoln Campbell (Luke Mitchell) sacrificed himself to save the team -- and the world -- flying a quinjet loaded with a nuclear warhead and the villainous Hive (Brett Dalton) above the atmosphere, hoping to explode the Inhuman overlord and his plan for global domination into the vacuum of space.

The heartbreaking plan was seemingly successful, but Dalton -- who's already "died" once before during S.H.I.E.L.D.'s third season, when former double agent-turned-Hydra leader Grant Ward was killed by S.H.I.E.L.D. director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) -- isn't so sure. The actor admitted to ET that facing his character's fate this time around felt "a little bit different," but he's already prepared to feed conspiracy theories.

"You never see the death," Dalton protested. "You see a blip on the computer disappear. So secretly, I think Hive is still floating out there in space."

It's certainly not an unthinkable theory in the Marvel 'verse. In fact, as the actor points out, it's one of the reasons Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. exists in the first place.

"The whole reason we have a show is because somebody named Agent Phil Coulson dies in one of the movies and then is resurrected and brought back to life by the fervor of our fans," Dalton explained, recalling the fan-driven "Coulson Lives" social media phenomenon that helped spur the creation of the ABC series after the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent was shot and killed in the first Avengers film in 2012.

And he wouldn't be a great bad guy if he didn't have an evil contingency plan. Dalton's already got his own version of #CoulsonLives all thought out: #HiveSurvives.

"So, I would like to unite -- or recruit -- all of my fans," the actor said with a laugh. "Start tagging and using that hashtag, because I want back on the show, and/or my own TV show."
