Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns tonight with “Many Heads, One Tale” (3x08) at 9:00 PM Eastern/Pacific.  What do we expect from tonight's episode?

What happened in the last episode, “Chaos Theory”?
May figured out that Werner von Strucker’s confession meant that Andrew was Lash, and she confronted him with the information.  Meanwhile, Coulson and Rosalind prepared to meet the President, a meeting which was put on hold when Lincoln and Mack brought them the information that Lash was a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and they realized that it was Andrew.  S.H.I.E.L.D., the A.T.C.U., and the “Secret Warriors 1.5” (Daisy, Mack, and Lincoln) went to bring Andrew/Lash in, which they accomplished with help from May.

We also got to see Joey again, working on controlling his abilities while staying in an off-site S.H.I.E.L.D. facility.

At the end of the episode, Lincoln joins S.H.I.E.L.D., May leaves for parts unknown, Andrew is placed in the A.T.C.U.’s stasis gel, and Rosalind is revealed to be in communication with Ward’s new potential business partner, Gideon Malick.

Episode Synopsis for “Many Heads, One Tale”:
“Coulson uncovers a new deadly enemy! The S.H.I.E.L.D. team discovers dangerous truths about the ATCU, and Grant Ward’s plans to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. take a surprising twist.”

Continuing plot points:

  • Coulson’s new arm
  • Skye rebuilding the Inhumans and recruiting her Secret Warriors simultaneously
  • The “Terrigen Bomb—Fish Oil Version”
  • Ward rebuilding Hydra
  • Simmons the disappearing scientist

What I am looking for tonight:

  • Rosalind’s contact with Hydra(?) will come out into the open
    • We may also find out if she’s actually Hydra or being used as a pawn by Malick
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra will come into conflict
  • Fitz-Simmons is going to be a thing
  • Ward will be on the warpath, and we may even figure out his plan

What would be awesome but probably won’t happen:
I really want to see the Secret Warriors in action together.  And with Hydra set to (likely) play a major role, this seems like as good a time as any for Deathlok to make his return.

So what are you looking for in tonight’s episode?  What is there that you really want to see but may not see at all?
