Following-up on last night’s awesome tie-in to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be welcoming back a senior member of the now-compromised world security organization for an episode late this month. True, it was reported early this week that Col. Nick Fury in the person of Samuel L. Jackson would be back for S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s season finale, but Maria Hill, and her portrayer, Cobie Smulders, will be back before the end of April. If that’s all you want to know, bail now because Winter Soldier and S.H.I.E.L.D. spoilers follow.
TV Line is reporting that Smulders, and Hill, will be back for the April 29 episode of the ABC series. When we last saw Fraulein Maria she was applying for a job at Stark Industries following the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. at the end of The Winter Soldier. Well, apparently you can take the Agent out of S.H.I.E.L.D., but you can’t… Well, you can guess the rest. Behold! An image:
According to TV Line, “Hill will play a large role in the May sweeps episode, and that those who have clamored for a Coulson/Hill team-up will get it, punctuated by lots of action.” You’ll recall that Hill appeared briefly in the pilot, and since Smulders day job on How I Met Your Mother has officially wrapped forever, many have wondered just when the actress might be lured back to S.H.I.E.L.D. Well, I guess we have our answer.
Smulders’ appearance on the show will be followed by Jackson on the May 13 finale. In the meantime, next week’s all-new episode, following a repeat of last night’s game-changing “Turn, Turn, Turn” will feature Adrian Pasdar as Col. Glenn Talbot and Patton Oswalt as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Eric Koenig.
