While fans were geeking out over seeing Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) and the Howling Commandos in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiere, they may have missed a major tease at what’s to come during the first five minutes of the episode.
Tag: ABC (14-26 of 213)
One of the most exciting casting announcements for the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was Adrianne Palicki’s guest role as the superhero Mockingbird. Like Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye—a character whose comics counterpart actually has a relationship with her—Mockingbird isn’t so much a superpowered demigod as she is a highly trained S.H.I.E.L.D. operative. But before Palicki can become Mockingbird, she’ll first have to appear as Bobbi Morse.
Courtesy of ABC, here’s your first look at Palicki as Bobbi Morse, the head of Hydra Security and the future Mockingbird. But will she be friend or foe to Coulson and S.H.I.E.L.D.? The Mockingbird part suggests friend, but the Hydra part…things might get complicated.
Palicki will appear as Bobbi Morse in the October 21 episode, “A Hen in the Wolf House.”

Just when you thought things couldn’t get worse for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., what’s left of the organization took a big hit in the season premiere all for the tiniest of victories.
For the first time in Modern Family history, the Dunphy family is actually getting along. There’s no sibling drama, Claire actually enjoys magic. Crazy, right?
Being an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. these days is no easy feat. The organization has been driven underground in the wake of Hydra’s total infiltration, and the man in charge of rebuilding was brought back to life via a serum from a mysterious blue alien.
When Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for its second season, newly installed Director Coulson will have an uphill battle to prove that his agents are actually the good guys—which is made all the more difficult with most of S.H.I.E.L.D. scattered to the wind, selling them out, or in their custody for being members of Hydra, like the double-crossing Ward.
Can Coulson return S.H.I.E.L.D. to its glory days? Who may stand in their way? And how will the team feel about Coulson being in charge? EW turned to executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen to get the scoop on season 2:
A handsome man boards the subway, choosing a seat next to a beautiful woman. They make eye contact, then look away. He says “good day” to her (in Russian), she responds in kind—and then the onslaught begins:
Woman: “How did you know I was Russian?”
Man: “Korovka. Russian chocolate. You have a smudge.”
[Woman wipes her face. There's a pause.]
Man: “Good luck at the performance tonight.”
[She looks at him quizzically.]
Man: “Sorry. I noticed the indentations on your fingers. At first I thought violin, but the spacings are a bit too wide, and there’s no markings under your chin. So, cello.”
Woman: “How did you know I have a performance?”
Man: “Your collar has a bit of moisture. Freshly showered. So I assumed you’re either headed to work or going out on a date, and with all due respect, it would be unusual for a woman as beautiful as you to be taking the subway to a date.”
And so on. Welcome to Forever, yet another example of TV’s favorite procedural subgenre: the Deductive Genius show. READ FULL STORY
On September 22, 2004, a wild pop romance—a torrid affair between audience and story—took flight. 18.65 million viewers tuned into ABC to watch Oceanic Flight 815 crash on a strange island, leaving an eclectic cross-section of archetypes on a vast spit of mystery. Here, on the 10th anniversary of Lost‘s premiere, we remember a first date for the ages.
Produced for $14 million and shot by director J.J. Abrams with Spielbergian verve, the two-hour pilot immediately sucked us into an exotic survival saga and a shrewdly formulated allegory for a fractured, catastrophe-frazzled world. It captured your imagination by promising a journey with global vision, packed with endless adventure and electrifying discovery—and by making you wonder how long this land-locked, no-escape ironic odyssey could last as the kind of perpetual storytelling machine American television requires.
Perhaps part of our attraction to Lost was the implicit danger. We knew we had fallen for this kind of sexy crackerjack before: take Twin Peaks, or The X-Files. We knew it could burn us by turning incoherent over time, or by withholding answers it may never have had in the first place. We jumped into it anyway, hoping for happily ever after. READ FULL STORY
Once Upon a Time nearly got 50 shades hotter last season.
During season three, executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis revealed to reporters that they had a plan for Jamie Dornan to return as Sheriff Graham, a.k.a. the Huntsman, who died in season one after Regina crushed his heart. Ultimately, Dornan couldn’t make it work because the actor was busy shooting Fifty Shades of Grey. At the time, the Once bosses couldn’t even reveal their initial plans, and now it’s clear why: Sheriff Graham would’ve appeared in the season finale, which featured Emma and Hook accidentally traveling back in time to the Enchanted Forest that was.
When Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for its second season, Director Coulson will have to reach out to some unsavory types in order to keep the organization afloat and battle the nefarious Hydra. One of those he’ll turn to for help is S.H.I.E.L.D. vet Isabelle Hartley, who brings with her a group of dangerous mercenaries.
It may be the year of Meredith, but she isn’t the only Grey Sloan doc with a tough season ahead of them on Grey’s Anatomy.
For several seasons now, Callie and Arizona’s relationship has been on a rough roller coaster—and we’re not just talking about the latter’s infidelity. The couple separated in season 7 when Arizona left for Africa, during which time Callie got knocked up by Sloan. Then, of course, there was Callie’s car accident, and Arizona losing her leg as a result of the plane crash, culminating in the formerly bubbly peds doc cheating on her wife. They did eventually get back together, move into a new home and decide to have a child via surrogacy, but those are just another series of Band-Aids that the duo have been placing on their damaged relationship. Can they really survive? Or will this new journey finally be the breaking point?
Grey’s Anatomy fans may not have to wait long to see Grey Sloan implode over the news that another one of Meredith’s half-sisters is working there.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has assembled a number of gifted friends and foes for its second season. And with the recently released plot details for the upcoming season’s third episode, Phil Coulson and his team will also be hunting down a familiar foe.
