Remember waiting months last season for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to return from its winter break? Sure Agent Carter was a great way to tide us over and I still miss that series terribly, but the storyline momentum gets disrupted big time when a show’s gone for three months.
Anyway, the good news is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be back in a little over a week with brand new episodes. Sadly Ghost Rider is gone (for now) and while I understand the special effects took a nice chunk out of the budget, production really should have thought about that before jumping all in. Gabriel Luna was terrific as Robbie Reyes, so here’s hoping he gets his own Netflix series. Moving forward, it appears evil “Life-Model Decoys” are now on tap and ABC/Marvel have released the official synopsis for episode 409:
AGENT MAY’S DEADLY SECRET COULD DESTROY COULSON AND THE TEAM ON ABC’S ‘MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
“Broken Promises” – Though Coulson and May are growing closer, Coulson remains unaware of the dark secret May is hiding beneath the surface. Meanwhile, Aida is unrelenting in her search for the Darkhold, on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” TUESDAY, JANUARY 10 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network.
An early peek at episode 410 has also recently been released, check it out:
COULSON DISCOVERS A SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT DIRECTOR MACE ON ABC’S ‘MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
“The Patriot” – Separated from their team, Coulson and Mack discover a shocking secret about Mace, leaving all of S.H.I.E.L.D. in a precarious position, on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” TUESDAY, JANUARY 17 (10:00–11:00 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network.
While this series has definitely had its ups and downs, overall it’s great television and I wish more Marvel fans were tuning in live. That said, ABC reported that the winter finale marked its most watched installment since early October with an *L3 = 4.1 million/1.4 rating and *L7 = 4.7 million/1.7 rating.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns January 10 at 10/9c on ABC
