Agents of SHIELD will take next Tuesday off while ABC broadcasts the Vice Presidential debate, but we’ve already got a preview of what you can expect when the episode returns. Check out the new images below:

We’re going to be seeing a whole lot more of AIDA (Mallory Jansen) and Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah). AIDA appears to be up and running on her own in Radcliffe’s facilities, or his home-based lab anyway. Interestingly, it looks like she’s got the same head piece that Fitz (Iain de Caestecker) was using to map Simmons’ (Elizabeth Henstridge) brain for their virtual reality invention we caught a glimpse of in the season premiere. Could we see AIDA getting some personality soon?

Speaking of both Simmons and Radcliffe, the two are going to have their work cut out for them this time around. As we saw in episode two, May (Ming-Na Wen) is suffering the effects of her encounter with Lucy (Lilli Birdsell). The two scientists will have to beat the clock to save her life. (Chances are, they’re going to succeed, even when a group causes a worldwide blackout.)

They won’t get much help either as Fitz will be on a mission with Mack (Henry Simmons) and Coulson (Clark Gregg) looking to shut down a group that wants to end Inhuman Registration worldwide. It’s not yet clear if this group is the Watchdogs, who will likely be popping up again, or if this group will intersect with Parminder Nagra’s Senator Rota Nadeer, who makes her debut this week.

We’ll also get to see a bit more of Robbie’s (Gabriel Luna) homelife instead of just focusing on him as the Ghost Rider. In the comics, everything he does can be traced back to his need to protect his little brother (Lorenzo Henrie), and the show will be delving into that relationship.

Written by producer Craig Titley, and directed by Magnus Martens, “Uprising” will air on October 11. Titley has already penned five episodes for the show in the past, including the divisive “4,722 Hours” from season three. This will be the first episode for Martens, though he has plenty of experience in genre television having directed episodes of 12 Monkeys and Banshee in the past.
