Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. came back on screen last night for the debut of the show’s 4th season, and its hot on everyone’s lips. This is mainly because of the television debut of a popular character, Ghost Rider, who fans have been clamoring for. The two recent films starring Nicholas Cage didn’t exactly light the world on fire and left much to be desired for the fan-favorite from Marvel. Gabriel Luna takes up the role now on ABC’s Marvel show, and was received in last night’s episode with mainly positive reception.
Chloe Bennet, who stars in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Inhuman Daisy “Skye” Johnson, is one of the show’s main characters. Not that that prevents her from feeling the wrath of friendly pranks like the rest of us, though. She even uploaded the video if it to her Instagram account earlier. Check it out:
The prank is a familiar one. Haven’t we all been about to get in a car, only for our friends to drive away over and over again? Well, I have. I’ve done it too. Its nice to know Chloe Bennet and the crew of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are just like the rest of us.
In the aftermath of their journey to another planet, Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the team were driven more than ever to put an end to the Hydra organization. Little did they know that they were up against the deadliest threat they’ve ever faced – an extremely powerful Inhuman, Hive, who was transported back from Maveth in the body of their worst enemy, Grant Ward. The team was able to thwart and kill Hive and take down Hydra, but they are all still mourning the death of fellow agent and Inhuman, Lincoln Campbell.
In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimatized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director (Jason O’Mara) to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack (Henry Simmons), and together they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of Enhanced people, aka Inhumans. They have been trying to track down and capture Daisy (Chloe Bennet), aka Quake, who has gone rogue in an attempt to atone for sins from the past. But with the world believing that Daisy is a dangerous outlaw who has taken down banks and bridges, the new Director has no qualms about taking her down for good. Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant.
Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna) will roar into the lives of Agent Coulson and the team as a junkyard mechanic who can turn on a dime into the terrifying Ghost Rider. Will Robbie be a friend or foe to S.H.I.E.L.D. – as well as the world, itself? Meanwhile, Fitz discovers that socially awkward genius and friend Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) has started putting the finishing touches on a new, secret invention.
Make sure to tune in for the second episode of season 4 next Tuesday at 10/9c on ABC!
