Last weeks episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. focused heavily on the origin story of Robbie Reyes and how he became the vengeful Ghost Rider. The target of a hit ordered by Joseph Bauer, a colleague of Reyes’ uncle Eli Morrow, Robbie quickly discovered that Morrow was the true power hungry villain among the team of scientist who had attempted to create matter out of nothing in the past. However, with the experiment recreated, Morrow caused an explosion that appeared to cause himself, Coulson, Fitz, and Reyes to vanish.
Speaking to EW, actor Clark Gregg would not reveal where our heroes had disappeared to, but he did offer fans some hope.
“The more sophisticated audience members will suspect that Coulson may not be dead in episode 6 of season 4, and probably the same goes for Fitz and young Robbie Reyes.”
While fans may be relieved that hear that all three characters are alive and well, at least for the time being, they will have wait a while longer to learn where Coulson, Fitz and Reyes have disappeared to when the series returns on November 29, 2016.
In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimized 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 – 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.
