There's an implicit promise of excitement, key plot points and maybe even big choices in the latest episode announcement for Agents of SHIELD.
Set to air on December 10th will be The Bridge, listed as the first in a two part story. Looking at the roster of returning actors you'll see that J. August Richards, Ajani Wrighster, Cullen Douglas and Ruth Negga are all scheduled to return.
Here's the full blurb:
In a shocking cliffhanger episode, Coulson takes the war back to Centipede, and this time he brings in Mike Peterson for some super-soldier support. As they get closer to the truth, startling secrets are revealed and an unexpected twist threatens the team.
Guest starring on The Bridge are also Ajani Wrighster as Ace, Ruth Negga as Raina, Rick Malambri as Brian Hayward, Molly McCook as Laura Hayward, Cullen Douglas as Edison Po, Rico Devereaux as prison guard and Albert Marrero Jr. as trainer.
This seems to be more of what folk want: serial storytelling and forward momentum.
