In a recent interview with TV Line during their Winter TV Preview featuring scoops for multiple returning shows, Jason O’Mara teased that we will be learning quite a lot about his background. O’Mara also talked about how viewers will learn about how Mace got his abilities as well as teasing his interactions with Daisy after restoring her public image in the fall finale.

“How Mace got his powers, his whole backstory, is going to be a major part of the next batch of episodes. How he legitimizes Daisy is going to be revealed as well, so there’s lots to look forward to there.”
