Re: The Cavalry (MCU)

I recall seeing her father alive, not dead, in an episode (played by the great James Hong), and I'm pretty sure she took a post at the SHIELD academy, while it was Mac MacKenzie (Henry Simmons) who became the new director of SHIELD.  Also, some mention of just how close her relationship with Coulson became would have been nice.
