It's only a matter of time before Agent Coulson can no longer continue being the consummate company man.
When Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for a seven-episode uninterrupted run on Tuesday (8/7c, ABC), the super series will explore just how far Coulson (Clark Gregg) can be pushed before he realizes that the company that he lives to serve has been hiding one too many secrets from him. The first crack in his façade began soon after his return to the field, when he realized there was something a little bit off after Loki brutally stabbed him through the heart in The Avengers. Of course, discovering that his resurrection was thanks to a mysterious blue alien didn't help either.

Jackson) moved heaven and Earth to bring him back to life through several surgeries that also wiped his memories of the experience. More recently, Coulson discovered a secret bunker that housed half a blue alien whose blood, imbued with regenerative powers, saved Coulson's life. It was the same blood that was used to bring Skye (Chloe Bennet) back to life.
