Later today Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be starting their second story arc of season four, Life Model Decoys. It was only revealed yesterday that a third story arc is to be expected before the finale of season four.
In the first story arc of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this season, we got to know the new Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes, and a conflict between him and his uncle Eli. Now that we’re progressing beyond the Ghost Rider part, we’re finding ourselves in new territory for S.H.I.E.L.D., featuring Life Model Decoys.
As we know by now, the A.I. Aida somehow replicated Agent May and switched her out for an LMD. Whether her intentions were noble or not, this still strikes a large problem for the team.
Progressing further in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, showrunner Jed Whedon announced that a third story arc is to be expected after LMDs wrap up.
“This year there’s three [story arcs]. It’s based on our schedule of how we’re airing. We like to run continuous, if that [is] possible, so this next [LMD] chunk will be a section and then we’ll be off for a while and there’ll be a third part.” – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Showrunner, Jed Whedon
We honestly have no idea where Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will go after LMDs, but it’s sure to be full of connections with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return tonight to ABC at 10 P.M. ET for episode 4×08 “Broken Promises”.
