* Spoilers ahead for AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. episode 11, THE MAGICAL PLACE *

Following on from last week’s report that Stan Lee is due to make an appearance on Marvel Studio’s struggling series, comes news that actor Bill Paxton (ALIENS) will feature in an upcoming 4-episode arc. Paxton will be playing S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and former buddy of Coulson’s, John Garrett.

Interestingly, in the Earth-616 continuity (ie the comic book continuity; the live-action stuff takes place on Earth-199999 fact fans!), Garret was turned into a cyborg by Nick Fury when he was injured in the line of duty. We’ll wager that in this Earth-199999 continuity, Garrett might have undergone the same horrific, experimental S.H.I.E.L.D. resurrection process (whatever the hell that was!) that we glimpsed in last week’s episode, THE MAGICAL PLACE. (Seriously, how creepy was the "please just let me die" scene. WTF was that thing?!)

Those of us still watching the show are all desperately rooting for it to find its footing and start living up to its true potential, and this new arc is a good indication we might just get our wish after all.
