Director Jeffrey MaceNext Tuesday, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finally returns with Season 4B as the show kicks off the next story arc which has been dubbed “LMD”, with AIDA (Mallroy Jensen) rising as the newest big bad. The second half of Season 4 will also be heavily focused on exploring Jason O’Mara’s character, director Jeffrey Mace who revealed that he is an Inhuman in the first half of the season.

However, there is a lot that we still don’t know about Mace, including his collaboration with Senator Nadeer (Parminder Nagra). In Entertainment Weekly’s recent edition of Spoiler Room, a fan asked for an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. tease and Natalie Abrams revealed the following quote from show-runner and executive producer, Jed Whedon.

“There’s a general question with him in terms of being all about trust. ‘The team that trusts is the team that triumphs!’ A guy who is always saying that who is new and that smiley who has a secret, it’s hard to trust him. Even in episode 8, he started asking questions about the Darkhold. I don’t think it’s totally clear where he stands.”
