Lucy Lawless reveals about "Izzy" to Marvel.com: "She’s a mercenary. She’s the one person in the world that Coulson can count on after Ward revealed himself to be a double agent [last season] and the horrible betrayal there. He needs to pick up the pieces and reform S.H.I.E.L.D. to combat the awesome forces of Hydra. Who’s he going to call [in that situation]? He’s going to call Izzy because he can trust her to the bitter end."
