The biggest news out of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. since the Season 3 finale last May has been that legendary Marvel superhero Ghost Rider was on the way for Season 4, and he blazed onto the scene in the season premiere to kick ass, take names, and dole out a whole bunch of death. Gabriel Luna made his grand bloody debut as Robbie Reyes - AKA Ghost Rider - and S.H.I.E.L.D. will never be the same. His entrance means that Season 4 is heading in a completely different direction than Seasons 1-3, and it's worth getting excited about. Read on for our breakdown of three major ways that Ghost Rider is changing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for Season 4.

Marvel TV Is Going Mystical

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stayed within the realms of science for most of its crazy twists over the first three seasons of the series. Even the wide variety of superpowers demonstrated by the Inhumans could be traced back to genetics rather than any sort of higher power or supernatural element. The show has had Fitz, Simmons, and a handful of other smartypants agents over the years to put facts behind the fantastical. Now, thanks to the introduction of Robbie Reyes and his haunted car, S.H.I.E.L.D. has established itself as existing within the wider world of Marvel mysticism.

The timing is right for S.H.I.E.L.D. to really start branching out from the realms of science. The next Marvel theatrical release will be Doctor Strange, which will follow the story of a surgeon who is trained by a sorcerer to defend the world against evil. As always, S.H.I.E.L.D. will connect in some way to the latest big screen Marvel venture. Executive producer Jed Whedon has already revealed that the ties will vary between the thematic, the reflective, and the direct. Ghost Rider is only the beginning of the mysticism to come in Season 4 and beyond.
