‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ 4.21 ‘The Return’ Synopsis Teases A New Threat

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 417 ClipWe are getting closer and closer towards the end of the fourth season of ABC’s Marvel series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as the battle against the Framework comes to its conclusion. ABC released today the official description for episode twenty-one, the penultimate episode of Season 4 titled “The Return”.

While the synopsis does list Heroes’ Adrian Pasdar reprising the role of Brigadier General Glenn Talbot, that is most likely not the person that the episode title “The Return” is referring to. The season four finale, reportedly titled “World’s End”, is set to air on Tuesday, May 16.
