“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’s” premiere episode has set up its central cast of six characters, so now it’s time to add some secondary roles. Previously reported guest stars David Conrad and Ian Hart are slated to appear in the show’s third episode, “The Asset.”
ABC uploaded new images from “Agents of SHIELD” episodes 2 and 3, and the photos from “The Asset” reveal Hart in his scientist role and Conrad as a man Chloe Bennet‘s Skye is seemingly spying on. (Come on, that compact has got to be some sort of cool tech.)
Check out the new images from episodes 2 and 3 here. Though Conrad’s character’s name hasn’t been revealed, it could be that Hart’s recurring character is the “brilliant scientist Dr. Franklin Hall” who is mentioned in “The Asset’s” synopsis.
The synopsis for “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” episode 2, “0-8-4,” reads:” 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.” Considering some of the photos from this episode, it looks like there is going to be an epic fight going on while one of the SHIELD plane’s doors is open.
As for episode 3, “The Asset,” the synopsis reads: “When the brilliant scientist Dr. Franklin Hall is kidnapped, Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must race against the clock to locate him. Skye is their only way in — pushing the team to their limits when the entire plan turns upside-down.”
“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” airs Tuesdays on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
