Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×07 airs on Tuesday (finally!) and we have a few hints for the sizzling new episode.
Be prepared to change your mind (again) about Mace
Director Jeffrey Mace has been an enigmatic figure in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 4, and the fog only thickens in “Deals With Our Devils.” Just when you think you’ve got a handle on Mace (for better or worse), the narrative flips once again, leaving lingering questions on that whole “team that trusts” thing.
The FitzSimmons is strong this week
Though Simmons and Fitz are physically separated in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×07, their deep connection is a driving force throughout the episode. In fact, “Deals With Our Devils” may just give you more FitzSimmons feels-per-minute than any other episode this season… though not quite in the ways you’d expect.
Keep your eye on Mack
Mack has been a nigh-unshakable pillar of strength (and awesomeness) (and handsomeness) since he joined the team, but we haven’t had many opportunities to explore what makes him tick. That finally changes in “Deals With Our Devils,” which challenges Mack in ways we haven’t seen before. Sometimes you have to crack the surface to see what’s inside, after all.
In a season that has felt a bit tangled at times, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×07 comes onto the scene like your favorite IT guy. The mass of wires charging disparate stories is gently untangled, and each thread is carefully plugged into the right port. “Deals With Our Devils” casts light on what came before — and makes sure we’re fully charged for the winter finale.
Coulson and Fitz and Robbie are…
Dead? Alive? Chocolate bars? Obviously, we can’t tell you. But be prepared for an answer that puts significant physical and emotional stress on the entire cast. And maybe opens up a few more questions than it answers.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×07, “Deals With Our Devils,” airs Tuesday, Nov. 29 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
