“Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.” are on the verge of finding the mysterious city they’ve been searching for, but now they’re racing Hydra to get there first. In a new sneak peek video for Season 2, episode 9, Coulson (Clark Gregg) briefs the S.H.I.E.L.D. team on where they’re going and what they’re looking for.

“Here’s what we know,” Coulson says. “Hydra’s on the move.They have the obelisk and an expert that knows how to use it. We can’t let that happen, obviously.”

While they are unsure what the obelisk does, Coulson says they have intel that claims there is a weapon inside of it. Unfortunately, they still don’t know anything about the weapon.

“While Simmons and I were undercover at Hydra, Whitehall was looking to create an extinction level event to kill millions of people,” Bobbi (Adrianne Palicki) says. “We have to assume that this weapon has the potential to do that.”

Coulson and Skye (Chloe Bennet) explain that the obelisk is like a key, and the temple in the city from Coulson’s drawings is the lock. Since Hydra has the obelisk, S.H.I.E.L.D. has to get to the temple first. Luckily, they are finally able to track down the city.

“Isn’t that in the Bermuda triangle?” Triplett (B.J. Britt) asks. “'Cause that would explain a lot.”

“Actually, it doesn’t have anything to do with the triangle,” Coulson says. “We solved that back in the '80s.”

They find the city underneath Puerto Rico. They just have to go to San Juan to enter and then find the temple. After it’s found, Coulson plans to “blow the hell out of it,” which doesn’t seem to please his team.
