Lately our resident Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. recapper Chris Lough has been hearing a long, slow train whistle just before he goes to bed. Every night it sounds a little bit closer, and every night he dreams of being tied down on the tracks, a tendril of coal plume just above the horizon...
In anticipation of the September 23rd season premiere of the show’s second season, ABC and Marvel are releasing a bunch of preview material.
