After a bit of a break, Agent Phil Coulson and company return to Tuesday nights in an all-new episode of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’. And though there is plenty of questions that we’re hoping to get answered on this week’s episode, it seems as though ABC and Marvel Television are already looking ahead to next week’s midseason finale.

Before we get there though, the network has released a new clip for the latest episode titled ‘Deals With Our Devils’. Set to heavily delve into the backstories of Mack and the mysterious Director Jeffrey Mace, this preview focuses on Agent Simmons encountering a terrigenesis cocoon, which has apparently been in this stage for seven months. While the person’s identity is classified, the audience knows that it belongs to the brother of Parminder Nagra’s Senator Rota Nadeer. Could this terrigen transformation lead to the coming of another incredibly powerful Inhuman from the comics? Answers are sure to come soon, but for now here’s the video courtesy of Comic Book Movie, followed by a synopsis for the episode:

“With the loss of half the team, the remaining members search for answers as the clock counts down for Ghost Rider.”

Now about that midseason finale. Before the penultimate episode of this half of the season even airs, Spoiler TV has shared some stills from the episode titled ‘The Laws of Inferno Dynamics’. Though a description of the story teases a series of events that could leave the lives of everyone in Los Angeles hanging in the balance, these photos showing some of the various agents, Ghost Rider, and his uncle Eli Morrow are relatively free of spoilers (despite the place they’re coming from). But as we’ve seen in the past with this show’s past midseason episodes, we’re probably in for something big next week. While we anxiously wait to find out what’s going on, check out the pictures in the gallery below:

What do you think about these sneak peeks at the last ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ episodes of the year? Are you curious to see what comes next for Ghost Rider, the Inhumans, and our favorite agents? Let us know in the comments.
