Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns from its brief hiatus next Tuesday with a brand new episode titled “Deals with Our Devils,” and following last night’s second promo, we now have our first sneak peak at the instalment. The promo gave us a glimpse of the mysterious Inhuman that’s evidently being set up as a more prominent player in the final half of season 4, and here we get an idea of how he’ll be re-introduced.
We already know from an earlier episode that this individual is actually the brother of Inhuman-hating Senator Rota Nadeer (Parminder Nagra), and although he’s not identified as such in this clip, it’s clear that S.H.I.E.L.D. knows a lot more about him than Simmons does. We do learn though that he’s been undergoing the process of Terragenesis “gestation” for seven months, which is obviously a lot longer than we’ve seen any other Inhuman character on the show cocooned for.
Like many others before him, it’s entirely possible that this fella will turn out to be an established Marvel Comics character. After all, there are certainly several prominent Inhumans from the pages that would be a great asset to this series – especially now that an Inhumans TV show has been announced – but we can probably rule out any chance of him being Black Bolt or a member of the Royal Family.
