“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Tuesday, December 8 at 9 PM ET/PT on ABC
In the midseason finale, “Maveth,” S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra go head-to-head in a battle that will change Coulson’s world forever. While Daisy and her team of Inhumans fight to keep Hydra at bay, Coulson and Fitz take the ultimate risk.
Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Agent Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) have led the charge this season as S.H.I.E.L.D. searches the world for more powered people in the aftermath of their epic battle with Jiaying and her army of Inhumans. However, Coulson and the team found out that they are not the only group looking for these new Inhumans.
Many months after their war with a rogue group of Inhumans, the team is still reeling. Coulson was again trying to put the pieces of his once revered organization back together while also dealing with the loss of his hand. His confidante and second in command, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), had yet to return from an impromptu vacation with ex-husband Andrew (Blair Underwood); deadly superspy Agent Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) is recovering from her traumatic torture at the hands of Grant Ward (Brett Dalton); Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) is obsessed with discovering the truth behind the mysterious disappearance of Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge); and all have been on high-alert for the next move from Ward and Hydra.
Ever since the existence of Super Heroes and aliens became public knowledge after the Battle of New York, the world has been trying to come to grips with this new reality. Coulson assembled a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division). S.H.I.E.L.D.’s mission: to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive.
After Hydra kidnapped Fitz and Simmons, Grant Ward took Fitz through the portal to Maveth, prompting Coulson to jump through and follow them in -- so acting S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Alphonso "Mack" Mackenzie has a lot on his plate already. Bobbi and Hunter give him the lowdown, and together with the rest of the crew, they assess the situation. As Hunter puts it, "This is the part where the plan turns to rubbish."
