It was all the way back in early January that we first learned that Bill Paxton would be appearing for a multi-episode arc on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and now we have an extended look at him in action. Marvel has released a brand new clip from the upcoming episode “T.A.H.I.T.I.” that shows the Aliens star as Agent John Garrett.
Comic book fans will know Agent Garrett for his ready-to-rumble attitude, and in the show he will be portrayed as an old cohort of Agent Coulson's (Clark Gregg) and Agent Ward's (Brett Dalton) mentor. We know that the episode will involve Garrett investigating a mystery with Coulson's crew, and apparently that involves them getting involved in some kind of heist situation.
But that's not all the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. goodies we have for you tonight! Marvel has also released the first four minutes of the episode, which delivers some pretty shocking news about Skye (you'll remember that Ian Quinn put two bullets in her gut in the last episode). If you don't want to know what happens until you see the whole episode I would click away now, but I would definitely recommend a watch.
Written by Jeffrey Bell, “T.A.H.I.T.I.” begins as Agent Coulson races to find a way to save Skye's life and brings in Agent Garrett to help him do so. As the search for help continues, however, he begins to unravel a mystery about himself and S.H.I.E.L.D.
