This Tuesday on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC, 8/7c), Coulson & Co. head to Asia to track a young man who has come to possess an unusual power — while Skye’s questionable allegiances threaten to come to light.
In the first look photo — a rare episodic featuring the whole team — Coulson, Ward, Melinda May (whose workout seemingly got interrupted by the meeting) and Skye receive new intel about their target from Agents Fitz and Simmons.
Elsewhere in the episode, former (?) Rising Tide wonk Skye’s double agent secret “jeopardizes her relationship with the team right when they need her most.”
Exec producer Jeph Loeb told TVLine recently that Skye’s ultimate loyalty is “one of the stories,” like Coulson’s resurrection, meant to keep viewers guessing during this first run of episodes. And this Tuesday’s hour, specifically, he said, “will start to focus in more” and present “more clarity” on Skye’s lingering ties to S.H.I.E.L.D. nemesis Rising Tide. (Maybe she and Coulson are pulling a Homeland?)
