One of them most exciting characters returning to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this season is Patton Oswald as Sam and Billy Koenig. The characters, who are supposedly going to reveal a “big family secret,” are fan-favorites, with a passion for lanyards. New set photos released by ABC, today, show that in addition to Oswald’s return, we will get to see Phil Couson (Clark Gregg) and Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) in a conversation so intense that ABC decided to release pictures from several angles.

Whether this version of Agent May is the actual agent, or the LMD version that has recently learned of her own status as an impostor, we don’t yet know. We also don’t know why it appears that one of the Koenig brothers is doing stand-up comedy (I actually double-checked in case our editor provided me with an errant photo from Oswalds stand-up acts). The synopsis for the episode indicates that the brothers are tracked down for the Darkhold. Tell us your theories, in the comments!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns tonight at 10 PM Eastern. Oswald’s return in Episode 4×12, “Hot Potato Soup” will air on January 31, on ABC.
