Things are looking quite grim for Agent Coulson as Episode 7 of ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gets underway this Tuesday at 8/7c — and we’ve got your first look at the twisty opening two minutes.
In “The Hub,” as dangerous secrets are kept from Coulson’s team, he works the system to save Ward and Fitz when they are sent on a Level 8 mission that may end in tragedy. The installment also introduces Saffron Burrows (you say Boston Legal, I say Deep Blue Sea) as Victoria Hand, who per Marvel lore has a deep history with S.H.I.E.L.D.
In this first look, a captured Coulson (played by Clark Gregg) is poised to have his mettle tested by The Interrogator, yet somehow he ends up making a very (and literally) cool getaway.
