After taking a week off due to the debates, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return tomorrow night with the third episode of season four titled “Uprising“. That episode, which will see the debut of actress Parminder Nagra as Senator Rota Nadeer, is sure to be a big one. (If you were following us on Twitter during NYCC, you’ll note that Doug cited it as an action packed episode.) However, is clearly only the beginning of something more. While “Uprising” sets out to end Inhuman Registration worldwide, the episodes that follow promise an ever larger focus on Ghost Rider going forward.

As you’re all aware by now, I’m sure, episode four of this season, titled Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire, will introduce a character that’s rather important to the Robbie Reyes character – Eli Morrow, who’ll be played by Jose Zuniga. Well, it appears as though that character will be that of a recurring one as Zuniga is confirmed to also appear in episode five, titled “Lockup“. The synopsis, which was just released by ABC, hints at Reyes trying to reign in the Ghost Rider while the S.H.I.E.L.D. gang sets out on their own important mission.
