'Agents of SHIELD': Elizabeth Henstridge promises 'huge' episode 2 - First look
"Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" is still days away from its premiere, but already the stars are talking up its second episode. Titled "0-8-4," the new ABC drama's episode 2 is slated to be even bigger than its pilot.
"Every week there's a new weird thing going on. We just pinch ourselves constantly," Henstridge says. "Each script we get, we can't believe it's bigger than the first. Yes, I'm excited for people to see the premiere next week, but then No. 2 is so huge that we can't wait for that either."
Fans can get a first taste of what's in store for the coming episodes through a sneak peek released by Entertainment Weekly. While much of the footage is from "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD's" pilot, some snippets take place in episodes 2 and 3.
This is Henstridge's first major television role, but she surprisingly doesn't feel any pressure going into "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD's" premiere. Part of that is likely because the show has a built in audience from the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
"In a funny way, I'm not nervous about it. I'm just excited about 'Agents of SHIELD.' We're so proud of it and we're just excited to share it now and see what people think," she says. "We definitely feel like we're welcoming new fans and then also kind of satisfying current fans. I think we're just excited. We love it, and we just feel like the fans are going to love it and new people are going to love it."
The show will find a balance between its episode plots and its larger overarching season-long storylines, Henstridge promises.
"There's definitely story arcs that's going to make people invest in the characters and really care about what happens to them," she says. "In the other sense, you can dip in and out. You don't need to know the full backstory to enjoy each episode in its own right."
"Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" premieres on ABC on Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. ET.
