SPOILER ALERT: This story contains details of tonight’s episode of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
We knew S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Agent Sitwell was in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but tonight on ABC’s Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. we learned how he got there. Is this the crossover between the TV series and the about-to-be-released big-screen sequel that Marvel’s been teasing fans about for weeks? Nobody’s talking in secretive Marveland, but in a sense the truth was already out there – though probably only the hardcore fanboys picked up on it tonight. Amidst all the usual S.H.I.E.L.D. high-tech shenanigans and drama, tonight’s episode, titled “End Of The Beginning,” opened with a number of agents from the superspy org gathering along with the show’s regular team. Among them is Agent Hand, who was on the series earlier in the season; Agent Blake, who was introduced in the direct-to-video Marvel One-Shot Item 47; and the bespectacled Agent Sitwell.
