"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is about to heat up. In "Boom," the next episode, Daisy and her S.H.I.E.L.D. team will face down an Inhuman who has an explosive power -- and they'll bring Mace along for the ride. Several new photos from the episode show Daisy on the hunt and flanked by S.H.I.E.L.D. guards. Though Mace doesn't turn up in these photos, the promo for the episode shows the (ex-)Director in action.
Additionally, the Superior returns in these photos, and he looks none too pleased with his right hand man. The Superior appears to be choking him out, but it's unclear what caused this sudden turn at this time.
Coulson also gets spotlighted in another photo. In it, he stares pointedly into the distance, but the photo doesn't show what exactly he's looking at. There appears to be an easel in the background with a handful of children's drawing on it. Since the episode synopsis teases that he and Mack will meet Radcliffe's inspiration for Aida, this photo could very well be from that sequence.
According to the official episode synopsis,
