Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.': Bullets Fly in First Photos of Episode 2, “0-8-4″
'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.''s place in our future is all but assured with the monster ratings debut of this past week's pilot (which you can re-watch here), but that future has become crystal clear with the first new photos of subsequent episode "0-8-4"! The team travels to Peru in search of a mysterious, unidentifiable artifact, but who's already in danger as the team is forced to defend their hi-tech plane from attack?
It looks as if "the bus" is already in danger of cracking apart (no Iron Man to repair the engines) in the first photos from "0-8-4," the previews of which revealed that code name to mean ... they don't know what it means! Coulson seems all but absent as the team struggles to defend the plane from hostile invaders, so we're guessing the young crew must discover their own strengths in working together, rather than always rely on their more senior leader.
From ABC's official description of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' episode 2, "0-8-4":
Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents travel to Peru to investigate an object of unknown origin, codenamed 0-8-4. But when he runs into Comandante Camilla Reyes, more than just sparks fly at 30,000 feet, on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, the ‘Avengers‘-adjacent series features Clark Gregg’s resurrected Phil Coulson, Ming-Na’s Melinda May, Brett Dalton’s Grant Ward, Iain de Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge as Leo Fitz and Gemma Simmons, and Chloe Bennet as hacker Skye.
