Victoria Hand (Saffron Burrows)
Judging by the teaser for upcoming episodes, it looks like Hand will be back for more in the New Year. That's great, but one episode isn't enough. Of every episode so far, "The Hub" was the only one that felt like a real S.H.I.E.L.D. adventure pulled right from the comics. That's no doubt due to the involvement of Victoria Hand, a prominent S.H.I.E.L.D. (and H.A.M.M.E.R., but that's another story) agent that we now know adds a level of tension to any comic and TV show she's in. So far "S.H.I.E.L.D." has no real gray areas, which is odd considering it's a spy show. Victoria Hand lives in the gray.
