Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Sneak Peek Reveals the New Director's Name

A sneak peek for the second episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s fourth season (airing Tuesdays at 10/9c, on ABC) drops the first major clue about who exactly is the new boss of Coulson, May et al.

In the clip below, the aforementioned field agents pay a visit to the new Director (played by Jason O’Mara), whom Coulson addresses by the first name of “Jeffrey.”

When O’Mara’s casting was first announced, it was said that he’d be playing a character “whose Marvel roots go back to the 1940s.” The actor himself told TVLine in August that the Director has “a very manly name.” Add in the seemingly trivial fact that O’Mara will be working sans his native Irish brogue… and one must wonder: Is this the patriotic, “70-year-old” character he is playing?

Watch the sneak peek above and share your current theory on the new boss’ identity, as well as his managerial style/worrying about Daisy and “optics.”
