Ghost Rider has tussled with Quake and rescued Fitz from a wicked ghost that was reaching for him, which Mack witnessed while he was locked in a chamber, but that's been the extent of his involvement with S.H.I.E.L.D., so far; however, based on the official synopsis for the fourth episode of this season, which is titled "Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire," Ghost Rider and S.H.I.E.L.D. will soon clash in a major way.
As Ghost Rider's quest for vengeance brings him into an explosive confrontation with S.H.I.E.L.D., Coulson and Mack must rely on an unlikely ally in their time of desperate need; and Daisy reunites with a familiar face to stop the Watchdogs.
