The fourth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been shaping up to be one of their best yet, largely thanks to the addition of Gabriel Luna‘s portrayal of Robbie Reyes, aka Ghost Rider. The Rider has fit surprisingly well with the tone of the show, but his backstory still remains something of a mystery to Daisy and the rest of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team. That looks like it’s all about to change in the sixth episode of this season, titled “The Good Samaritan“, airing November 1st at 10 PM on ABC. The synopsis for the episode was just released, and promises that the “shocking story” of how Robbie became Ghost Rider will finally be revealed:
