As first reported by Zap2It, DeKay — who in early August wrapped production on White Collar‘s final season — will appear in Episode 6, titled “A Fractured Rose,” as the S.H.I.E.L.D. prisoner’s older brother, Senator Maynard Ward.

As shown in Season 1’s “The Well,” the elder Ward regularly tormented if not outright abused his younger siblings. Grant ultimately acted out so much that, as revealed in Season 1’s “Ragtag,” he landed in a juvenile detention facility, where he was ripe for recruitment by S.H.I.E.L.D. specialist/HYDRA mole John Garrett.
