“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD”
has released an embarrassment of riches in the new photos for its upcoming episode “Providence.” The images include potential spoilers, as well as first looks at the characters played by Patton Oswalt and Adrian Pasdar.
Above, Oswalt plays the role of Eric Koening, though what exactly that entails has yet to be seen. Some images show him interacting with Coulson, but whatever he’s doing, he’s not with the Howling Commandos in the World War II era like he was in the comics. Maybe he’s still somehow connected to that storyline, though?
Meanwhile, Pasdar looks suited up as Col. Glenn Talbot, but it doesn’t seem he’s an ally of the “Agents of SHIELD” team. The synopsis for “Providence” reads: “With Colonel Glenn Talbot now on their trail, Coulson and his team seek refuge in the last place anyone would look, where they begin to uncover SHIELD’s most dangerous secrets — secrets that could destroy them all.”
What is Agent Garrett doing here with Raina? Is he secretly an enemy of SHIELD? And who is he standing over?
Clearly times change pretty drastically in the next two episodes of the series to get us to this point.
“Agents of SHIELD” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
