We'll have to wait another week to learn how 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' deals with the fallout from 'Thor: The Dark World,' but in the meantime, Coulson's team will pay a visit to big S.H.I.E.L.D. in this week's "The Hub," and we've got a first look at the new "Level 8" classified mission.

While we've already seen that Coulson will encounter both Jasper Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernandez) and Victoria Hand (Saffron Burrows), it's Ward and Fitz we should be worried about as a Level 8-classified operation leaves the duo firmly in harm's way, with no extraction planned. Skye voices her objections to Coulson in the latest clip from "The Hub," but the deepening levels of secrecy to the organization quickly complicate matters for all involved.

Here’s what ABC has to say of this week’s “The Hub”:

The Hub” – Dangerous secrets are being kept from Coulson’s team, and he works the system to save Ward and Fitz when they are sent on a Level 8 classified mission that may end in tragedy in “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” on the ABC Television Network.

Guest starring are Maximiliano Hernandez as Agent Sitwell, Charles Halford as Agent Shaw, Alison White as Marta and Ilia Volok as Vladimi.

Well, what say you? Will criticisms of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' get any lighter as the larger organization gets involved in the story?
