Keeping up with the trend kicked off with "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" 2015 return, next week's episode also has a piece of original art inspired by the installment's content. The poster, revealed over at Entertainment Weekly, depicts Ming-Na Wen's Agent Melinda May backed up against a wall and ready to fight. The image, which ties in with the appropriately titled episode "Melinda," comes courtesy of cover artist Jenny Frison.
The episode promises to reveal the truth behind the nickname "Cavalry," which Agent May earned under mysterious -- and most likely fraught -- circumstances. You can check out the image as well as a synopsis for "Melinda" below. "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." airs Tuesdays on ABC.
