TV show description:
In this action series, it seems that Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) has returned from the dead (Gregg reprises his role from the Marvel movies). He assembles a small specialized team of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division).
Coulson believes that a small team of regular people, when working together, can make just as much of a difference as those with superpowers. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary.
The team includes:
Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) is highly trained in combat and espionage but sometimes fails at getting along with his coworkers. Fiercely loyal to the agency, he’s a man of few words who’s always cool under fire and ready for action.
Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) is an expert pilot and martial artist. Her talents are legendary in the organization but for some reason has resigned herself to a quiet desk job.
A genius engineer, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) is socially awkward but is always in tune with his research partner and friend — a brilliant biochemist named Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’re inseparable and often bicker with one another and neither have any field experience.
A new recruit, Skye (Chloe Bennet) is a hacker with a vast knowledge of computer coding. Unlike the others who work for S.H.I.E.L.D., her background remains a mystery.
Episode #136 – What We’re Fighting For
With their backs against the wall and Nathaniel and Sibyl edging ever closer to eliminating S.H.I.E.L.D. from the history books, the agents must rely on their strengths to outsmart and outlast the Chronicoms. This is their most important fight, and it will take the help of friends and teammates, past and present, to survive.
First aired: August 12, 2020.
