ABC has released a new "Hold On" clip from this Tuesday's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode, which is titled "The Patriot." While en route to a safe house, Coulson, Mack, Mace, and Burrows discuss a recent assassination attempt that left one agent dead and Mace — who tossed a podium with his super-strength — looking like a hero once again. They try to figure out who was behind it, ruling out the calculating Senator Nadeer because the assassination attempt was so poorly planned.
In "The Patriot," separated from their team, Coulson and Mack discover a shocking secret about Mace, leaving all of SHIELD in a precarious position.
