The truth about what happened to Agent Coulson isn't the only secret Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been keeping.
When the ABC super series debuted, Coulson (Clark Gregg) had to coax Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) back into the field since she took a desk job after some incident that was likely the catalyst for her nickname The Cavalry. But May will face her past head-on during Tuesday's episode (8/7c, ABC) when one of her secrets could be the key to saving the team...
Marve's Agents of SHIELD
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will crossover with Thor: The Dark World on Tuesday's episode (8/7c, ABC) when Coulson's (Clark Gregg) team is sent in to pick up the pieces after the Dark Elves' attack on London. The episode will serve as a history lesson, of sorts, on the people of Asgard when the team comes across as Asgardian relic.

Welcome to Level 7.
When Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted last week, we met the new team of agents tasked with keeping the world safe from the strange and unknown. Heading up the team is Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg), who enlisted Agents Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) and Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), scientists Fitz (Iain De Caestrecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), as well as hacker-anarchist Skye (Chloe Bennet) to form a sub-division of the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. — Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division. TVGuide.com turned to executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen to get to know the agents better. Check it out:
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?
