The team is back together, but this is not a happy reunion on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” At the end of episode 4, Coulson told Daisy and Ghost Rider that they needed to work together to find the evil book. No one seemed particularly excited about it, but it seems to be the only option. In Season 4, episode 5, Coulson will realize that his newest team members don’t follow orders well.
“As Robbie Reyes struggles to control The Ghost Rider, S.H.I.E.L.D. infiltrates a high-security prison to unravel the secrets that haunt them all,” the ABC drama’s synopsis teases.
Going to a prison could be the reason Ghost Rider (Gabriel Luna) is itching to come out. The anti-hero’s goal is to make bad people pay for their sins. Is a prison like a candy shop to Ghost Rider? Or will the demon get tired of Robbie being controlled by S.H.I.E.L.D.?
While the synopsis is short, the trailer shows a bit more of the struggle, and it might not be Ghost Rider’s fault things are going badly. Robbie seems to think he should be using his methods to interrogate people and fight the ghosts.
The trailer also shows Daisy (Chloe Bennet) in trouble. A Watchdog (Jermaine Jacox) will attack Daisy in the prison. “Don’t do this,” Coulson yells as he is forced to watch Daisy get strangled.

Don’t expect this new alliance to go so well. Executive producer Jed Whedon revealed that there will be some serious conflicts with the new lineup. “Daisy has made it very clear that she doesn’t want to be with our team,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “There’s all that history and pain there. For Robbie, this is a guy who has never had a team, and probably doesn’t function well within one. We’ll see pretty quickly that it’s an uneasy alliance and it’s going to cause a lot of drama.”
They won’t be the only ones causing trouble. The mysterious Senator Nadeer (Parminder Nagra) will return, and so will Director Jeffrey Mace (Jason O’Mara). Considering he has shoot-on-sight orders for Daisy, he might have to discipline Coulson for working with her.
