We've been wondering just how Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would connect to the Marvel cinematic universe, and it looks like one of those connections is imminent. The events of an upcoming episode of the show will immediately follow the action of Thor: The Dark World.
EW reports that November 19th episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., "The Well," will pick up where the new Thor movie drops off:
In the aftermath of the events chronicled in the feature film Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World, Coulson and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pick up the pieces–one of which threatens to destroy a member of the team.
The exciting news? Commander Riker himself, Jonathan Frakes will be directing the episode. This isn't Frakes' first trip to down Joss Whedon lane; he also directed the Sierra-centric episode of Dollhouse, "Belonging."
