ABC clearly intends to keep viewers on the edge of their seats during this one week hiatus of the fourth season of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D, and it looks like they’ve succeeded, with the release of an impressive set of new high resolution images. The still pictures give a tantalising glimpse of what the audience can expect from episode four – titled Let Me Stand Next To Your Fire.
Featuring the steadfast agents facing off with the legendary Ghost Rider, these images indicate the drama has a particularly tense instalment in store for those watching the show – as the official episode synopsis confirms.
“Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire – As Ghost Rider’s quest for vengeance brings him into an explosive confrontation with S.H.I.E.L.D., Coulson and Mack must rely on an unlikely ally in their time of desperate need; and Daisy reunites with a familiar face to stop the Watchdogs, on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.
“In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimatized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director (Jason O’Mara) to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack (Henry Simmons), and together they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of Enhanced people, aka Inhumans. They have been trying to track down and capture Daisy (Chloe Bennet), aka Quake, who has gone rogue in an attempt to atone for sins from the past. But with the world believing that Daisy is a dangerous outlaw who has taken down banks and bridges, the new Director has no qualms about taking her down for good. Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant.”
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D continues on ABC, on October 18th 2016.
