Coulson Relives Death in New ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Clip

“I looked into the eye of this island, and what I saw … was beautiful.”

Those are the immortal words of Lost‘s John Locke, but Agent Phil Coulson will make a similar remark on the next episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., airing Tuesday. Marvel released a sneak-peek clip from the upcoming episode, titled “FZZT,” featuring Coulson recounting his near-death experience for a man who also seems to be near the end of his life.

“Listen to me. I’ve been where you are right now, so please believe me when I tell you, you don’t have to be afraid,” Coulson tells the man, played by 24 and Person of Interest veteran Vincent Laresca. “I got hurt once. Pretty bad. I died. Some say it was only for eight seconds, but I know it was more than that. I know I wasn’t here anymore. I was there.”

“What’s it like?” the man asks, prompting Coulson’s Lockeian response: “It’s beautiful.”

The nature of Coulson’s resurrection remains a key mystery on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., one the writers are taking their precious time to reveal. Perhaps new clues will emerge in “FZZT,” if not a full answer. Look for even more teases about Coulson’s time in the afterlife in the Nov. 19 episode, called “The Well,” which ties into the plot of Thor: The Dark World. Here’s the synopsis of that episode:

“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.”

    There is a YouTube edition out there, if you’d like to make this available under fair use to the wider audience outside the United States.

    yeah…I’ve ran across that issue too…although it’s mostly been related to BBC posting Doctor Who stuff that is only visible to the UK…and not the US.

    He’s a life model decoy. Jeez, the writers really think they have us fooled?

  • DarthBumbles

    Maybe he was brought back by Doctor Strange.
    Strange is turning up in “Phase 3″, maybe he’ll appear on TV first.
