Minor Spoiler Warning: Missed last night’s mid-season premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Then you’ll probably want to hold off on reading the rest of this article as it does contain some minor spoilers from “Bouncing Back”.
After returning with a rather great winter premiere last night, we now have our first batch of stills from next week’s episode titled “The Inside Man”, which will see the return of Glenn Talbot (Adrian Pasdar), who was just recently promoted to head of the ACTU. Even more interesting, perhaps, are the images of Brett Dalton as Hive. The ancient being seems to have regained its strength and is apparently tearing through not only television channels, but also books, in hopes of catching up on what it missed out on while on Maveth. As it stands, we don’t know too much about Hive just yet, other than its an ancient Inhuman that Hydra was eager to bring back through the portal. When it comes to motives and secrets, there’s still plenty to uncover throughout the rest of the season. And with how great Dalton is as portraying this new character – with the perfect amount of arrogance and creepiness – I can’t wait to see what else the writers have in store for the character.
For those that may have missed the synopsis for the episode, here’s the short version:
“The Inside Man” – Coulson and General Talbot are forced to team up and attend a worldwide symposium on Inhumans, where they suspect Malick has an inside man. As the S.H.I.E.L.D. team gets closer to the truth, an unexpected traitor is revealed, on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” TUESDAY, MARCH 15 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT) on the ABC Television Network.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays on ABC at 9 PM EST. Be sure to tune in! And check back later today for our review of last night’s episode, “Bouncing Back”.
