AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

Bill Paxton spoke with Crave Online about his role as Agent John Garrett and whether he knew the character would have such a large impact on the series.

"They started writing for me and I knew it was penciled in where it was possibly going and I’m having so much fun now that they’ve unmasked Garrett and his true nature has come out," Paxton told Crave Online. "I’ve got three more episodes and they’re pretty cool. There’s a great episode that really deals with Ward, how he ended up almost like my surrogate son and also a little bit about where I came from, why I tick the way I do. Then of course we’re all coming in for the season finale."

Plus, here's a promo for tonight's episode featuring Amy Acker, and a full scene that could test the resolve of Agent Ward.
