Last week's episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had Skye heading out on her own to demonstrate her loyalty… which appears to be flexible at this point. Based on the promo and the episode description, it looks like Episode 4 ("Eye Spy") will focus on the group's attempts to deal with a rogue agent, and one that Coulson trained.
Here's the official episode description, which -- added to the above preview -- indicates that Akela Amador (Pascale Armand) is the mentioned rogue agent who needs to be reeled in.
“Eye Spy” – Agent Coulson and the S.H.I.E.L.D. team try to track down a mysterious woman who has single-handedly committed numerous high-stakes heists. But when the woman’s identity is revealed, a troubling secret stands to ruin Coulson, on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
It's interesting that the description says "stands to ruin Coulson." If he trained this agent and she's since gone rogue, possibly using that training and who knows what other resources to commit crimes, that could compromise his credibility with his team. On the optimistic side, maybe whatever this situation will bring the group together, or motivate them not to use the training they're getting for villainous purposes. Just a theory. We'll have to see how this story plays out, but the indication that this episode will focus -- at least in part -- on Coulson is a good sign.
Here's a look at the two characters together…
It looks like they have her held in some kind of beehive-looking cell.
