Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) joined the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. team this week. But her arrival wasn't even the most exciting part of the episode. No, that honor belongs to the team member who's been keeping a big secret from Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg). But let's first take a look at how we got to this startling discovery...

Lorelei will team with the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to complete her mission, even finding a kinship with someone among the group. TVGuide.com turned to Alexander to get the scoop on how her guest spot came together, Sif and Lorelei's rivalry and what Sif's arrival means for Coulson's (Clark Gregg) secret:

Do you know how next week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. connects to Thor: The Dark World? — Dirk
NATALIE: If you haven't yet seen Thor: The Dark World, you may want to put that on your to-do list this weekend or you might be a little lost during next week's episode. "The story centers around an Asgardian relic," Brett Dalton tells me. "As for how it affects the team ... I'm hoping it gives me Chris Hemsworth arms." Seconded.
Is it too soon to ask for scoop on The Following? Will Claire be back this season? — Jessica
ADAM: Natalie Zea's role remains a bit of a question mark, especially given the Comic-Con teaser footage that suggests a grim fate for Claire. Another bad sign?

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
A Norse God. A flying billionaire in an iron suit. A man frozen in time. A giant green rage monster. These are just a few of the characters that Marvel has somehow made relatable throughout its films. But now, in their quest to bring that same magic to TV, ABC will attempt to get the fanboys, fangirls and the uninitiated to tune in for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
What are Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s chances on Tuesday nights?
On the TV show, which airs Tuesday at 8/7c on ABC, Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) assembles a select group of agents to form the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. — Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division — which investigates strange and unknown occurrences around the globe. The team includes Agents Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) and Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), scientists Fitz (Ian De Caestrecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), as well as hacker-anarchist Skye (Chloe Bennet), who adamantly works against the S.H.I.E.L.D. team until she discovers their true nature.
So how will the world of S.H.I.E.L.D. be approachable for both diehard comic book fans and new viewers alike?

It's unclear, however, whether Stewart had ever officially signed on to a sequel in the first place.
