Col. Talbot and Maria Hill Make Their Debut In The First Clip From Tuesday’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

Last week on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Team Coulson was fractured when May left the icy tundra after realizing she didn’t want to serve under Coulson anymore, and Skye realized Ward was a Hydra sleeper… after finding the body of Agent Koenig and being sort of taken hostage, but not really, in Ward’s attempt to decrypt the hard-drive containing all of the team’s research. Now, while all of that is going on, Coulson and the rest of the team are about to face a new problem, special forces:

Say it with me, people: HILL IS BACK!

Now that Cobie Smulders is finished with How I Met Your Mother, there is talk the producers are actively seeking ways to bring the character into the show more regularly in season two (which has yet to be confirmed by ABC), and the seeds of that implementation might be getting planted in this week’s episode, which will also see the live action debut of Col. Talbot, played by Heroes‘ Adrian Pasdar.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs this Tuesday at 8/7c on ABC.
