Marvel revealed the synopsis for the Winter Finale for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D in a press release as the series is set to return after its break for much of the month of November. The return date for the show is currently unknown, and will likely not be revealed until early next year. The usual schedule for the show is for it to return in the Spring in March, and end its season in May 2017. However, previous seasons have had ten episodes in the front half with Agent Carter filling in for its winter break. Without Carter on hand, and with the show having taken a few extra breaks due to the election, it’s hard to say if they’ll be following the former schedule still. In fact, S.H.I.E.L.D. could very well return in February. For now, we can at least get excited for the winter finale which is set to feature an unlikely partnership as a new threat looms on the horizon.

From this synopsis, it seems that the threat that Ghost Rider and S.H.I.E.L.D may have to face in the Winter Finale is Eli Morrow. In the last episode before the November Break, Eli Morrow gained supernatural powers through the DarkHold. As Ghost Rider is currently the only known Enhanced individual capable of handling supernatural threats, this alliance is likely one of necessity.
