ABC and Marvel have revealed the synopsis for episode 412 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.; ‘Hot Potato Soup’. Entertainment Weekly recently announced that this episode would see the return of the Koenig Brothers. The synopsis for this episode, which can be read below, teases not only their return, but also their involvement in safeguarding the Darkhold.
Agents Sam and Billy Koenig (Patton Oswalt) are hunted down to get at the Darkhold book, and only Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the team can save them before the clock ticks out”
As Dr. Holden Radcliffe (John Hannah) intensifies his quest to seek out the Darkhold, it would seem that those hunting the Koenig brothers down may be Life Model Decoys. It is unclear at this point in the series whether these LMDs will be AIDA (Mallory Jensen) or the replacement Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen). This also signifies that the team will have become aware once again of the continued existence of AIDA and LMDs despite the destruction of the former android.
The resolution of the Darkhold plot remains to be seen; however, it appears that Dr. Holden Radcliffe may be outed to the rest of the team as the true villain before the season is over. In addition, Entertainment Weekly also revealed that in this episode we would learn the Koenig family secret. Will we finally get confirmation of the Koenings as LMDs?
The next Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Episode 4×10, The Patriot, airs Tuesday, January 17 at 10 PM on ABC. The promo can be viewed here.
