Just after delivering a mind-bending grade-A episode, it looks like the cast and crew of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” are not yet done with their many twists and turns. The show has promised a “new world order” when the drama resumes its fourth season on April 4. Considering where they left off, this is very believable.

Spoiler alert! This article contains “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” spoilers. Read on if you would like to know what happens before the next episode airs.

Viewers have seen the team escape a battalion of their own teammates recreated into artificially intelligent robots called Life Model Decoys (LMDs). All this trouble caused a lot of issues and things got even worse when their base was about to explode. To solve all this, Jemma and Daisy selflessly had themselves hacked into Aida’s framework. This allowed them to inhabit their alternate beings and find their abducted friends.

While doing so, Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) woke up in a bathtub in the apartment that she shares with Grant Ward (Brett Dalron). Of course, this is an alternate setup. As for the rest of the team, Coulson found himself promoting an anti-inhuman mechanic. Mack (Henry Simmons) had reunited with his daughter May and is happy to be working once again in the Hydra Triskelion.

Showrunner Joss Whedon, who might be more than just a familiar figure for Marvel fans, spoke to TV Line recently and clarified a lot of questions about the show. On what to expect, he says that viewers should brace themselves for what he calls the “Agents of Hydra” arc.

When asked what Holden Radcliffe (John Hannah) and Aida did to create the controversial framework, he says that they actually only changed a few things. For those people that they put in, they changed one regret for each of them. However, the effects appear to be more far reaching than they seemed because they triggered a ripple effect for the others.

As for the huge Grant Ward reveal, Whedon was asked if it was his preference to subtly announce using a framed photo or if Brett Dalton not being available at that time. He simply said that Bret is a “huge diva.” There are multiple reasons and scheduling just happens to be one of those. He also clarifies that it has more to do with Daisy walking by and being unaware. They wanted it to be clear to the audience that it is not Lincoln, but not necessarily for her to know yet.

A lot might ask where Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) might be when the show returns. While Whedon did not reveal exactly where she is, she surely isn’t six feet under as some fans may have thought. She will certainly be seen again and fans will have to wait and see where she ends up when the show returns.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” airs every Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. on ABC in the US. In Australia, it airs on SyFy. The show is currently on break and will return April 4.
