Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returned from hiatus this week, kicking off its “LMD” story arc, the second of three arcs planned for the season. While Aida and Dr. Radcliffe’s plans are still mysterious and sinister, the team still has other threats to deal with including Parminder Nagra‘s Senator Nadeer and the radical anti-Inhuman group The Watchdogs. In our first clip from next week’s episode, The Patriot, Coulson, Mack, and Director Mace are returning from an event that didn’t quite go as planned when their quinjet is attacked.
The clip gives us a lot to look forward to and shows us another example of how good Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s special effects have gotten. The first half of the season showcased an excellent-looking Ghost Rider and several other effects that went beyond what most would expect from a TV Drama. While this arc likely won’t be as heavy in special effects (since Robbie Reyes is M.I.A.), the effects that we do get will hopefully live up to the standards of the Ghost Rider arc.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Episode 4×10, The Patriot, airs Tuesday, January 17 at 10 PM on ABC.
