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...

The internet was swirling with rumors of Melinda May's demise after the Nov. 5 episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but TVGuide.com can reveal that The Cavalry (Ming-Na Wen) did not die like fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg).

Until now, Coulson's special branch of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been taking on crises on their own. But when they're faced with a Level 8 mission on Tuesday's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., they'll be taken straight into the belly of the beast, where they'll cross paths with Victoria Hand.

One day it's a punctured plane, the next a horde of Peruvian rebels blasting AK-47s, the next a mad scientist or a serial killer. There always seems to be danger in the air on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., though that's not the case right now. What's wafting through the show's Los Angeles soundstage is the unmistakable scent of love.
The cast of the ABC action-fantasy series has gathered on the Bus — a high-tech megajet — to shoot a scene that finds the government agents regrouping after a particularly rough mission. Black-ops specialist Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) came damn close to losing his life and was saved by, of all people, meek engineer Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker). Hacker chick...
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
I'm going to get right to the point: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is not good.
Five episodes in, and I'm ready to quit -- and I don't quit anything. I'm still watching Grey's Anatomy, Project Runway and yes, even the boys vs. girls season of America's Next Top Model, but S.H.I.E.L.D. is pushing my limits.
Last week's episode was a small step in the right direction, finally introducing the show's Big Bad, Centipede. But I'm finding it hard to muster up anything beyond apathy towards this evil. Why should I care whether or not Coulson's team can save the world from Centipede when they haven't given me a single reason to care about the people doing the saving? Here are seven ways that S.H.I.E.L.D. went wrong:

For viewers who are complaining that Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been offering up more questions than answers, Tuesday's episode will at least start unraveling the mystery behind S.H.I.E.L.D.'s newest team member, Skye (Chloe Bennet).

The mysterious "hacktivist" joined Coulson's (Clark Gregg) team in the series premiere, though we haven't learned much about her since. Based on the promos, it seems Skye's secret of working with The Rising Tide to spy on S.H.I.E.L.D. will soon come out. What is Skye really after? TVGuide.com caught up with Bennet to find out:
It's the big mystery of the fall TV season: How is Agent Coulson actually alive?
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has yet to answer the question on how the team's fearless leader Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) is still kicking after being stabbed in the chest by Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in The Avengers. But Tuesday's episode did offer up another clue that could point us in the right direction. Let's first take a look at the clues we've already been given:
Nicole Beharie, Tom Mison
Question: So we had the first cancellation of the season with Lucky 7 after two showings. There are no tears from me as I never watched it. My question is: On what planet did anyone ever perceive this show's premise to be interesting or sustainable? Out of the hundreds of pilots, it is sometimes hard to believe someone at ABC thought this was one of the best. What do you think is next? — Rob
Matt Roush: Next for ABC, or next in the long annals of "what were they thinking" pilots? (That sound you hear is ABC kicking itself for not keeping Body of Proof around as a back-up, because for the time being, Scandal repeats will be airing in place of the unlucky 7.) To be fair, Lucky was based on a more successful British series, The Syndicate, but something clearly got lost in translation. (Same thing must have happened regarding ABC's equally mediocre Betrayal, based on a Dutch series and adapted by the same exec producer, who's batting 0 for 2 right now.) Your point about the sustainability of a pilot's premise is a good one, and comes up frequently when analyzing the failure of shows as disparate as last season's Last Resort and (though it may be premature) this season's Hostages — more on that one later. But from the moment many of us saw clips of Lucky 7 at last spring's upfront presentation, it felt like nothing we could imagine almost anyone would want to see. And we were right.
