Kathryn Leigh Scott's AGENTS OF SHIELD role revealed?

Marvel has released a detailed episode summary for the mid-season premiere of AGENTS OF SHIELD, which includes the name of the character played by Kathryn Leigh Scott:

"The Baroness."

The episode looks to have a huge cast. In addition to the regular cast members are recurring guest stars like Kyle MacLachlan, as well as new faces like Edward James Olmos, Fred Dryer and Scott. Beyond that, there are still no details about the nature of her character. With a name like "The Baroness," though, I'm guessing "villain."

As a side note, Thomas Kretschmann will be one of the villains in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, which is only a few months away from theaters. Kretschmann is playing "Baron Wolfgang von Strucker," a character with connections in the film to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Those two characters were recently retconned in the comics to make them "Inhumans," a race of genetically engineered alien/human hybrids. The Inhumans were introduced as a formal concept to the cinematic Marvel Universe in mid-season finale of AGENTS OF SHIELD. Make of that what you will.

Originally titled "Aftershocks," the episode seems to have suffered a name change since it first announced in 2014. Now titled "Epidemic," it's set to air March 3, 2015.

"Epidemic" was written by Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon, and directed by Billy Gierhart.

Meanwhile, Scott is making the promotional rounds for her new novel, JINXED. The follow-up to DOWN AND OUT IN BEVERLY HEELS is now available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions. Customer reviews are beginning to appear on Amazon have been overwhelmingly positive.
