We are getting very close to the 100th episode of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. And a while back there were some teases that the 100th episode would be something grand and maybe even cataclysmic… there wasn't enough information to even make a guess. But now the team seems to be headed back to their proper time, something we'll know for sure when the series returns on March 2nd, and then the 100th episode will air a week later on March 9th.
Here were the two biggest teases for how big the episode could be:
Clark Gregg told EW.com that it definitely is.
Fans who hope that a 100th episode will contain something that will be a cataclysmic event or a gigantically resonate event for their feels after 100 episodes will not be disappointed.
If that isn't clear enough, before the season premiered, head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb told Comicbook.com:
Look, this is not going to come as a surprise to anyone that's ever seen a 100th episode, that there will be a significant event. That's all I can tell you. They gotta get home from space!
Now we have a synopsis for the episode called The Real Deal:
In the milestone 100th episode, Coulson finally reveals the mysterious deal he made with Ghost Rider, which will impact everyone on the S.H.I.E.L.D. team.
What does that mean? Fans have wanted to know what Coulson had to promise the Ghost Rider in exchange for borrowing the Spirit of Vengeance long enough to defeat Aida last year. And when I talked to Gabriel Luna in November, he wouldn't say either way but I got the distinct feeling he would be returning to the series as Robbie Reyes. This doesn't mean that Reyes / Ghost Rider will appear in episode 100, or even if the Rider does, Reyes may not. We'll have to wait to see how it all plays out.
Marvel's Agents of SHIELD returns March 2nd at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
