And there's also a synopsis for the eighth episode of the season, "Many Heads, One Tale."

The S.H.I.E.L.D. team discovers dangerous truths about the ATCU, and Grant Ward's (Brett Dalton) plans to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. take a surprising twist.

Guest starring are Blair Underwood as Andrew Garner, Constance Zimmer as Rosalind Price, Andrew Howard as Banks, Powers Booth as Gideon Malick, Mark Dacascos as Mr. Giyera, Nelson Franklin as Steve Wilson and Astrea Campbell-Cobb as flight attendant.

Ming-Na Wen spoke to ComicBook.com about last night's huge reveal of Lash's identity (spoiler: it's May's ex-husband Andrew), saying that it took her completely by surprise.

"You know, I feel so dumb, because her I am in the thick of shooting our show, and when I read that script my jaw dropped," she said. "I was so surprised. Completely, completely, thoroughly surprised. And here I am reading on Twitter all these fans are coming with that idea. And I can't answer, of course, but it amazes me how smart our audience is, because I was completely blindsided. I never, never even suspected until after I had read that script. I guess, as Ming, I would not be a very good agent [laughs]. I don't know what it is with May and bad boys, but she doesn't choose men wisely."

"I can't give anything away, but all I can say is it definitely puts May in some of the toughest positions of her life," she added. "I think for her to leave S.H.I.E.L.D. was, on the one hand, just a hope and a dream, but now that she's back and has to face this, Andrew is the love of her life. Putting the pieces together and realizing that she may have to make another horrible decision -- Bahrain already messed her up, so I can't even imagine what it would do to her."

Airs Tuesdays on ABC


The CW has released a producer's preview of "Haunted," with Wendy Mericle discussing Constantine's guest spot on the show.

There's also a clip from the episode, which features Constantine and Oliver interacting, in this week's DC All Access.

Matt Ryan also spoke to ComicBook.com about his return, saying that he'd be up for playing Constantine again.

"Do you know what? At the moment, I'm concentrated on the play," said Ryan of his current engagement. "I'm doing this play til January. But I love this character; it's one of my most favorite characters I've ever played and having this chance to play him again has been great. I wouldn't say no to another opportunity of donning the trench coat again."

Airs Wednesdays on the CW


A fun Halloween-themed Deadpool sketch has popped up, starring Ryan Reynolds as the merc.

The "Deadpool" director and screenwriters have talked more about the film. In an interview with ScreenRant, director Tim Miller talked about Colossus' role in the movie.

"When [Colossus] shows up, you see the Blackbird in the background," said Miller. "It's just a nod to the larger X-Men universe that Deadpool really doesn't want to be part of. He's had his chance. I mean, there's a great line where Colossus says, 'You could be a superhero' and he's like 'Yeah, I've seen my report card and I don't want to be that guy.' But I like the fact that he's deliberately chosen not to be part of that world, but it's still there."

Speaking with Collider, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick elaborated on Colossus' role in the film. "Colossus was the one we wanted to fight for because he's a real goody two-shoes and a real rule follower, and we thought he was a good foil to Deadpool," Reese shared. "He's just this sort of square jawed, metaphorically and literally, but he's also a square and that's pretty fun to play opposite Deadpool."
