Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return tonight and we will finally uncover how different the world is with HYDRA in control. With the newest episode coming out, we are now receiving more information on the upcoming episodes, and after we got a first glimpse at the HYDRAverse incarnation of The Patriot for the upcoming episode “No Regrets”
We also got the following press release for the upcoming episode:
“No Regrets” – The truth behind Fitz’s turn could bring down all of S.H.I.E.L.D., on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” TUESDAY, APRIL 18 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie and John Hannah as Holden Radcliffe.
Guest starring are Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Jason O’Mara as Jeffrey Mace, Jordan Rivera as Hope Mackenzie, Patrick Cavanaugh as Burrows, David O’Hara as Alistair, Adam Kulbersh as Kenneth, Taj Speights as Burnell, Skyler James as Chris Adler, Beau Bonness as Hydra gate guard and Christopher Showerman as Hydra soldier.
“No Regrets” was written by Paul Zbyszewski and directed by Eric Laneuville.
The focus on Fitz is interesting, and opens up the question if it will bring down the version of S.H.I.E.L.D. within this “What if” scenario, or even affect the real world version. So far, the show has strongly focused on the virtual Framework and the poster hinting at this universe’s Mace does showcase the classic logo of the spy organisation. We could see Fitz take on a major role in taking down this universe’s version. It will be interesting to see if this could be a bad sign for Mace’s future moving forward.
That is not all, as we also received more posters with one giving us a look at this world’s version of one of the characters. This time it focuses on Mack’s more cosy life as a father and further hints at the Inhuman fear that is being pushed by HYDRA. It is also interesting to see that HYDRA has also outsourced into newspaper production with “Hydra Observer”.

Another one further hints at the arrival of Madame Hydra on the show with two soldiers wearing the gear that is reminiscent of Captain America: The First Avenger, while standing in the traditional HYDRA greeting. It is interesting that so far the only characters that have yet to receive any posters are Holden Radcliffe and the biggest mstery of the newest pod, Simmons. With a few more hours to go, we might still get a poster to tease her whereabouts.
What do you think this might mean for Mace? What do you think can we expect in this HYDRA world?
