No New Agents Of SHIELD Episodes Until April
Marvel's Agents of SHIELD has developed a consistency over the years of its lifetime in that the later episodes in the season almost always beat out the beginning in terms of quality.
And after a slow start in the Ghost Rider arc of the series, things have picked up with the Life Model Decoy storyline. Unfortunately, as it heads into its third and final 'pod' of episodes, it will be taking a long break before picking back up.
After this week's episode—called "Self Control"—airs on February 21, the show will be off the air for six weeks, returning on April 4th with the as-of-yet untitled episode 04x16.
The last pod of episodes would carry the show to a May 16th season finale, if they air without a break.
So expect the LMD storyline to wrap up on the upcoming episode, even if it doesn't get a neat-and-tidy resolution. It should set up the next slate of episodes, which Chloe Bennet recently stated will make fans "sh*t themselves."
The latest episodes promises to be heavy on the FitzSimmons action, as the rest of the team has been replaced by LMDs. How will the scientific couple solve the latest conundrum? We'll have to wait and see on Tuesday when Agents of SHIELD airs.

The regular cast features Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso "Mack" MacKenzie, and John Hannah as Holden Radcliffe.

"Self Control" was written and directed by Jed Whedon.
Marvel's Agents of SHIELD airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
