Those happy go luck Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are back tonight on ABC. For twelve episodes the team has put themselves in harms way, but no one is ever really hurt. The show, like “G.I. Joe”, features tons of bullets and lasers but few direct hits. Tonight’s all new episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” finds the team going undercover, and the promo alludes to one member of the team ending the night in danger.
Instead of just flying around to find trouble, tonight’s episode finds the team going undercover. There’s danger on rails that has something to do with the mystical Clairvoyant, and Coulson and crew board the train as passengers to figure out the puzzle. It’s the kind of situation that has Coulson and Simmons pretending to be Father and Daughter. Here’s the episode synopsis from ABC.
Hot on the trail of the Clairvoyant, Coulson and his team board a mystery train that seems to be headed for certain death.
Besides the train mystery and the Clairvoyant, tonight’s episode features a cameo from Marvel Legend Stan Lee. Lee appears in cameo roles in every Marvel production. Look for him in his trademark glasses and mustache.
The real question for tonight, besides who Coulson had in his arms at the end, is can a train ride elicit excitement? There’s a hint of “Speed 2″ on the cruise ship feel to train travel. Can’t the team just pull the emergency lever if there’s a problem? Tune in tonight for what’s being billed as a “series changing final act”.
