at . Comments

Kyle MacLachlan is about to enter the Marvel universe.

The veteran actor (Twin Peaks, Sex and the City, How I Met Your Mother) will portray Skye's father on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., multiple sources confirm.

The issue of Skye’s parentage has been a mystery throughout the first-season run of this ABC drama, including the identity of this character’s parents and how she ended up at an orphanage.

Also: why she is classified as an 0-8-4?!?

The answers to these questions still await, but it's safe to assume that MacLachlan's presence will help shed some light on them.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 kicks off on Tuesday, September 23 at 9/8c.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Quotes

Coulson: Since when did you become a high ranking member of team Gonzales?
May: Someone had to run the base while you were gone. Having a seat allowed me to keep you safe.
Coulson: I was fine on my own.
May: Seems that's how you operate best.
Coulson: What the hell is that supposed to mean.
May: That you've been lying to me. Every since S.H.I.E.L.D. fell, all those overseas trips you were taking. They were never about recruiting new agents were they? You want to tell me what Theta Protocol is?
Coulson: No.
May: Because you don't trust me.
Coulson: Because you're not the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
May: Neither are you.

Discovery requires experimentation and this experiment will take time.
