Following last week’s press release for the ninth episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s fourth season titled ‘Broken Promises, ABC and Marvel have released a new batch of promotional stills for the episode. The stills focus on the android AIDA (Mallory Jensen), Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), and Dr. Holden Radcliffe (John Hannah). The above images focus on Fitz and Dr. Radcliffe, apparently discussing AIDA, who is standing at attention. Given that the synopsis teases AIDA’s ongoing interest in the dark hold, it is entirely possible that Dr. Radcliffe and Fitz are meeting to discuss apparent programming discrepancies in the android.

The synopsis for 4X09 was released last week and teases Agent Melinda May’s (Ming-Na Wen) secret.

“Coulson is unaware of a dark secret May is hiding, even as the two grow closer; Aida is determined to find the Darkhold. ”

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D will return Tuesday, January 10 at 10/9c. If you need to remember what is coming, the teaser for the shows’ return can be viewed here. Meanwhile, are you getting excited for the new focus on AIDA, and the other LMDs she’s created? Let us know, in the comments!
