Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Synopsis Teases Civil War Fallout and Ghost Rider's Entrance
The new season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is now less than two months away, and after we learnt yesterday which actor would be playing S.H.I.E.L.D.'s new DirectorMarvel has now released a detailed synopsis for what exactly is in store for our favorite agents in Season 4.

As well as teasing the exciting arrival of Robbie Reyes aka Ghost Rider, the synopsis gives us an idea about what major storylines each of the main characters will be experiencing. Of course, the fallout from Civil War's Sokovia Accords is still prominent, as you would imagine for a piece of legislation that impacts powered people and their freedom. Unfortunately for Daisy, though, it looks like S.H.I.E.L.D.'s new director isn't willing to play any games when it comes to having a rogue Inhuman on the loose. Tensions between the Agents and S.H.I.E.L.D.'s new hierarchy look set to play a major role this season, and it looks as though even Fitz and Simmons relationship might take a hit, with the latter being assigned to work closely with the new Director and losing the trust of her colleagues as a consequence.

Check out the full synopsis, below.

Opening quote
In the aftermath of their journey to another planet, Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the team were driven more than ever to put an end to the Hydra organization. Little did they know that they were up against the deadliest threat they've ever faced – an extremely powerful Inhuman, Hive, who was transported back from Maveth in the body of their worst enemy, Grant Ward. The team was able to thwart and kill Hive and take down Hydra, but they are all still mourning the death of fellow agent and Inhuman, Lincoln Campbell.
 
In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimatized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director (Jason O'Mara) to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack (Henry Simmons), and together they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of Enhanced people, aka Inhumans. They have been trying to track down and capture Daisy (Chloe Bennet), aka Quake, who has gone rogue in an attempt to atone for sins from the past. But with the world believing that Daisy is a dangerous outlaw who has taken down banks and bridges, the new Director has no qualms about taking her down for good. Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons' new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she's now the Director's confidant.
 
Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna) will roar into the lives of Agent Coulson and the team as a junkyard mechanic who can turn on a dime into the terrifying Ghost Rider. Will Robbie be a friend or foe to S.H.I.E.L.D. – as well as the world, itself? Meanwhile, Fitz discovers that socially awkward genius and friend Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) has started putting the finishing touches on a new, secret invention.
Closing quote

I think it's safe to say that the biggest takeaways from this are:
1. Coulson presumed dead?
2. Mack and Coulson buddying up in the field!!!!
3. Agent May essentially becoming the fighting guru of S.H.I.E.L.D.
