Robbie is still with the team on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Though he definitely wants to be on his own, he’ll need to stick with Coulson and his agents if he wants to find his uncle. Eli was taken hostage by Lucy in the last episode, and it seems Robbie’s origin story will be explored while he goes after his uncle in Season 4, episode 6.
“Robbie’s shocking story on how he became Ghost Rider is finally discovered as Coulson and his team’s lives hang in the balance,” the synopsis for the ABC drama reveals.
It isn’t clear who will put the team’s lives in danger, but they’ll all be interested in Robbie’s (Gabriel Luna) history. Director Mace (Jason O’Mara) only just discovered Robbie. Like Coulson (Clark Gregg), he might also question Robbie’s “deal with the devil” story.
Watch the “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 4, episode 6 trailer below:
They’ll have to find Eli (Jose Zuniga) before Lucy (Lili Birdsell) can get to him, but it looks like Robbie’s whole family will be in episode 6, titled “The Good Samaritan.” Gabe (Lorenzo Henrie) is shown in the promo video, and it looks like he’ll be involved in some of the action.
“You deserve the truth, all of it,” Robbie tells him. Gabe is seen in one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s white pods with Daisy (Chloe Bennet), and it seems like he’ll see Robbie’s transformation firsthand.
The synopsis and trailer don’t allude to Mace’s deal with Senator Nadeer (Parminder Nagra). At the end of episode 5, Nadeer blackmailed Mace with security footage of Daisy working with the agents. It wasn’t said what Mace has to do to keep that footage hidden, but it will clearly be something he doesn’t want to do. After all, Nadeer has a major problem with Inhumans.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 4, episode 6 airs Tuesday, Nov. 1 at 10 p.m. EDT on ABC.
