Here's what to expect from the next 3 eps of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The world at large finally got a chance to see Joss Whedon’s pilot for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this week on ABC, but what’s coming up next for Marvel’s newest gang of heroes? Now, we know.

Synopses for the next three episodes have been released, revealing a trip to Peru to obtain an artifact; a sci-fi tinged kidnapping case; and a high-stakes heist. The pilot scored solid reviews with critics and fans alike, but the real question is where the series goes next.

We’re anxious to see exactly how Whedon & Co. plan to string this concept out for the long haul, and the next three episodes seem to go a long way toward establishing the Marvel-style case of the week we’ll be seeing on a regular basis.

Check out the episode descriptions below and let us know what you think:

Episode 2, “0-8-4”: Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents travel to Peru to investigate an object of unknown origin, codenamed 0-8-4. But when he runs into Comandante Camilla Reyes, more than just sparks fly at 30,000 feet.

Episode 3, “The Asset”: When the brilliant scientist, Dr. Franklin Hall, is kidnapped, Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must race against the clock to locate him. Skye is their only way in–pushing the team to their limits when the entire plan turns upside-down–on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Episode 4, “Eye-Spy”: Agent Coulson and the S.H.I.E.L.D. team try to track down a mysterious woman who has single-handedly committed numerous high-stakes heists. But when the woman’s identity is revealed, a troubling secret stands to ruin Coulson, on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

New episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. air Tuesday nights on ABC.
