ABC have today released the official plot synopsis for the mid-series première episode of their second full season of their detective drama Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Titled "Aftershocks", the eleventh instalment of the show's sophomore run will pick up shortly after the events of last December's seemingly game-changing mid-season finale "What They Become" as Daisy "Skye" Johnson and the ever-untraceable Raina come to terms with the powers bestowed upon them by the Terrigen Mists in an extraterrestrial city buried deep within the Earth.
On top of unveiling details on how Skye in particular will initially deal with her new-found abilities as well as how the episode in which she transformed will affect the loyalties of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra agents alike, the press release containing this information also presented readers with a concise yet no less intriguing précis for the second half of Season Two as a whole. The two synopses - both of which appear to actively encourage fans to perceive Agents' next ten episodes as a direct prologue to 2019's Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbuster Inhumans - can be found along with details of the US air-date for "Aftershocks" can be found below, so by all means, read on:
- "AFTERSHOCKS" - "Coulson's team must deal with the consequences of their war with Hydra as shocking revelations threaten to tear them apart, and Hydra makes a dangerous move that may involve a traitor in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s midst."
- SEASON TWO EPISODES 11-23 - "[...] New threats to the world have arisen, including Skye's father, Cal [...], who now seeks retribution against Coulson for stealing his revenge against Whitehall; a disturbing alliance between former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Ward [...] and Agent 33; the enigmatic Raina [...], who struggles with her transformation into something inhuman by the alien Obelisk and seeks vengeance; and Skye [...], who developed mysterious new powers from the Obelisk but whose lack of experience with her new abilities may threaten the safety of those she loves.
