After a pretty insane mid-season finale and a lengthy break, Agents Of SHIELD fans are practically carving up the walls with anticipation for the series’ return.
The action is set to kick off again on 3 March in the US with Aftershocks. You can read the episode synopsis here:
After discovering an alien city with ties to his resurrection, Coulson and his team destroyed it before the forces of Hydra could claim its secrets, eliminating the villainous Whitehall (Reed Diamond) in the process. But new threats to the world have arisen, including Skye’s father, Cal (Kyle McLachlan), who now seeks retribution against Coulson for stealing his revenge against Whitehall; a disturbing alliance between former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Ward (Brett Dalton) and Agent 33; the enigmatic Raina (Ruth Negga), who struggles with her transformation into something inhuman by the alien Obelisk and seeks vengeance; and Skye (Chloe Bennet), who developed mysterious new powers from the Obelisk but whose lack of experience with her new abilities may threaten the safety of those she loves.
Meanwhile, Bobbi (Adrianne Palicki) and Mack (Henry Simmons) begin the next phase of a plan which seems to have grave repercussions for Coulson and his team, who are unaware that there’s another mysterious force moving against them. And as Hunter (Nick Blood) is forced to make the biggest choice of his life, Coulson will find his mission threatened by this shocking endgame.
In the midseason premiere, “Aftershocks,” Coulson’s team must deal with the consequences of their war with Hydra as shocking revelations threaten to tear them apart, and Hydra makes a dangerous move that may involve a traitor in S.H.I.E.L.D.’s midst.
Also to get excited about is the news that Adrianne Palicki (Supernatural, Friday Night Lights) has been upgraded to series regular, which will mean more Mockingbird ass-kicking and more Bobbi/Hunter love/hate antics.
Agents Of SHIELD Season 2 continues on 3 March on ABC in the US and soon after on Channel 4 in the UK. You can buy Agents Of SHIELD Season 1 on DVD for £20 from Amazon.co.uk. Get all the latest Marvel news with every new issue of SciFiNow.
