“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” is introducing yet another Marvel character into the ABC series in Tuesday, April 22’s episode, “The Only Light In The Darkness.” It seems the title is a nod to the character who will be a focus of the episode: Marcus Daniels, aka Blackout.
The above cold open for Season 1, episode 19 shows Blackout using whatever means he needs to get to Portland. As fans already know, Coulson’s Cellist — aka Audrey — lives in Portland, and will be introduced in this episode. Suddenly we have a good inkling why Coulson would need to leave Providence to find her.
This sounds like an elaborate ploy from Agent John Garrett to draw Coulson out. Of course Garrett knows about Coulson’s lady love, as the two had been close friends before it was revealed Garrett is HYDRA. If we’re not mistaken, Blackout is one of the men Garrett let out of The Fridge last week.
“Agents of SHIELD” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. There are only four episodes left of Season 1.
