NAME: Antoine "Trip" Triplett
CANON: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
AGE: 28 (? DOB in canon)
CANON POINT: "What They Become" - Season 2 Episode 10

BACKGROUND: MCU Wiki on Antoine Triplett
INCENTIVE/FIT: Not being dead, Skye also not being dead (his last memory was her being encased in rock--never knowing she would later break free of it) or anyone else on his team had to be free from harm in San Juan. That would be all the incentive needed for Trip to accept an offer. The team had been through a major upheaval in very little time. It was more than he'd ever been through before with SHIELD. It made them close. They were more than teammates. They were like a family. The kind that made it easy to take a bullet for repeatedly. Just before San Juan, after Jemma had changed the bandages on recent gunshot wounds, Skye voiced having a feeling that something bad was going to happen. Trip told her to forget her vibe on anything bad happening--he had it covered. It was the thought that played in his mind as she cried out for him within the chamber in a voice he'd never heard her use before.

Trip is easily affectionate to people he likes. He wouldn't have a problem with giving a guy a handshake or a hug but that would be the extent of affection with the same sex. However, his hangups would be much less when it came to the opposite sex. He wouldn't be into kinks that degraded a lover, neither would he follow through if the woman wasn't interested/willing. Other than that, it's long overdue to release some of his...tension.

Name: Antoine "Trip" Triplett
Canon: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Age: 28 (? DOB in canon)
Timeline: Picking up from "What They Become" - Season 2 Episode 10

Background: MCU Wiki on Antoine Triplett

Personality: Trip has been described as compassionate, loyal, and trustworthy who will often acting as a ray of sunshine regardless of the losses he's experienced (S1E18 he told Coulson that he's lost good friends due to Garrett's betrayal while a few episodes back in S1E16 Trip told Ward the he's just trying to keep things light though they're on the trail of a nemesis). He often shares family stories with friends even if they don't show him in the best light. Jemma repeats one at the end of S2E11 even if the entire story isn't shown. In the same scene, Skye closes it by reflecting that the team is going to 'laugh a lot less' having recently lost him.

His compassion can be seen early on in his canon while staying with Simmons to watch over recently injured Skye (S1E14). He doesn't boast to be vain but to bring a smile to situations like in S1E22 Trip told Coulson with a grin that he brings the noise and the funk wherever he goes. His often-flawed optimism can be seen in S2E02 regarding not thinking the worst about Hartley's condition to Skye and again to Skye that she can lose the vibe about her feeling something bad was going to happen in S2E09;both situations, she was right.

Loyalty shouldn't be confused with being a dutiful soldier. Often Trip was given orders that he had no intention of obeying (S1E16 he warned Ward to stay out of the way if they found the Clairvoyant. Trip planned on taking him out as retribution for the death of his partner Dan Monroe). However, there was never a question of where his allegiance stood as seen in S1E17 when Trip told Simmons she could trust him because he was trustworthy and proved as such by declaring he'd rather die than be part of Hydra.

Dedication as a friend can be so strong in him that Trip voiced discontent more than once when someone abandoned the team (S1E20 May "Then we don't need her sorry ass" and Simmons S2E02 "Still can't believe she left him like that" regarding Fitz). It's almost as if his mind won't comprehend anyone who isn't selfless. His death is the greatest evidence of how far he'd go for a friend.

S2E10 showed that the second he learned Skye (and Coulson) entered the ruins set to collapse, Trip didn't hesitate to act regardless of still recovering from recently being shot. He didn't stop at disarming the bombs set to bring the ancient city down but went in search for Skye to get her out. Watching the obelisk turn her to what looked like rock, he made a desperate attempt to stop the process with a roundhouse kick to the crystals exposed--ultimately causing his own demise when they exploded on contact and shards imbedded into his chest.

Powers: None ...other than being a skilled agent and likable guy.

Other Notables:

Network Sample: [ An angled shot of the ceiling starts the video before moving down and finding his puzzled face. There is a little bounce before his hands steady so his face is centered in the screen. The neckline of a cotton t-shirt shows, indicating that he’s gotten comfortable in the space he’s in or he would be wearing a jacket on top. His brow is knit together in concentration for a moment before it relaxes and he's back to normal--or whatever normal is where he's at. ]

I’m still trying to figure out if this some kind of game that Hydra’s playin’, or if I somehow ended up on an episode of the Twilight Zone.

[ Trip can’t help but chuckle. A soft grin lingers from the brief laugh. The view of his face canters to the right as he rotates his left shoulder just out of frame. No bullet holes but Trip can feel the stiffness from the recent injury and it shows on his face. The smile tugging his lips faded about as quickly as it formed. ]

It’s just…

[ He looks around the room then returns his gaze to the tablet in his grip. ]

…given the last thing I remember before ending up here, I don’t get any of this.

[ His eyes fall away in thought at the last words he uttered and the expression on his face transitions from casual to downcast. The memory of being too late to save Skye plays in his mind until his eyelids press tight. He shakes his head and looks back up, proffering a determined look with a hint of a smile. ]

Look, if anyone watching this knows me, I’ll be in the lobby trying to get more answers. And maybe some grub.

[ The video continues for a beat before it abruptly shuts off. He yearns to find a familiar face in person, unwilling to be toyed with any further by whatever power this 'The Generous' is. ]

Cast says goodbye to BJ Britt aka Trip

I am reeling from the episode. Muse is still around because of who he is. As unhappy as I am with the direction the show decided to take regarding Trip, I tip my hat that he was kept genuine until the very end.

I've read enough articles to know there's no talk of Trip coming back even though there is a #TripLives movement and the show had a very emotional time saying goodbye. I'm admittedly an anti-social media person but I will be joining this movement.

Also, sorry to anyone who might've read Trip's Dear Mun post and then couldn't find it shortly after. I posted without thinking it through. I'm not sure I want to acknowledge his canon just yet.

Would I do it all again if given the chance? Yeah, I would.

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

Koenig: "So you're not going to mention your grandfather?"

Triplett: "That's not something I advertise. I don't want to be treated any different because I'm a legacy."

Koenig: "If I was the grandson of a Howling Commando, I'd have that tattooed on my chest."
