The next installment in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" weekly poster series comes from "X-Factor" artist Ryan Sook and gears up for a big showdown between Fitz (Iain de Caestecker), Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) and Cal's alter ego Hyde (Kyle Maclachlan).
"Episodes 20, 21 and 22 almost work as a three-parter," executive producer Jeff Bell told Entertainment Weekly. "I think because we were doing the full two hours on the final night, we really decided to just lead into that. We left episode 20 with Jiaying saying 'this is war,' and Skye assuming that Gonzales shot her and attacked her, so we have S.H.I.E.L.D. and Inhumans and all our different threads finally coming together. And Skye is really torn between these two factions, between her surrogate family and her real family. Where will she go with that? And we've been promising Inhumans and some fun powered stuff, and hopefully we can make good on that promise as well.
In this season, Simmons has walked down a dark path, even attempting to kill Ward (Brett Dalton) and accidentally murdering Sunil Bakshi within the past two episodes. With Fitz's palpable fear evident, the poster could be hinting that Simmons -- who looks much cooler and in control -- will go to some extreme lengths when it comes to protecting her friend.
"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." airs Tuesdays at 9 pm EST on ABC.
