Agent Coulson and his team are back tonight on ABC for an all new “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”. The last time we saw Coulson he was being kidnapped by Centipede in a cliffhanger heist. Their reason for taking him relates to his time spent in “Tahiti” after “dying” during the Battle of New York. Does that mean we will finally get some answers about this season long mystery? According to the ABC synopsis for tonight’s episode Coulson deals up some answers.
Coulson uncovers vital information about the mystery of his death, but, with Centipede out for blood, this knowledge may come at the cost of one of the team.
The promise of “vital information” is tantalizing. While the entire story won’t be revealed, there should be enough to see the direction the Coulson story line is moving towards by the end of season one. And about that “may come at the cost of one of the team” lines. That is the threat every episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”. They are the show that cried wolf. Fitz or Simmons nearly die once an episode before their remarkable rescues in the last segment of the show.
Tonight’s episode is titled “The Magical Place”. That sounds like an obvious Coulson reference to us. Of course some of the worst nightmares occur in magical places.
Date: Tuesday, January 7th
Episode Title: “The Magical Place”
