With Avengers: Age of Ultron just around the corner, what does this mean for the ABC show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Many viewers remember that when Captain America: Winter Soldier came out, and S.H.I.E.L.D. became corrupted by everything Hydra, the show's characters had to deal with the outcomes of that, which put them in a sticky situation.

According to USA Today, the outcome of Avengers: Age of Ultron will do the same thing to the ABC show. The upcoming two episodes, starting this Tuesday, will have Easter eggs and an assortment of elements leading up to the Avengers sequel.

Colbie Smolders will be returning as Maria Hill to the show and on the May 5 episode, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will have to deal with the aftermath of the film. However, S.H.I.E.L.D. is not getting destroyed again.

The current stories won't totally get derailed by all of this though. There's still Real S.H.I.E.L.D., Skye learning to deal with her new abilities, and the "Theta Project," which executive producer Jeff Bell says will pay off by the end of the season.

Here's a clip for the upcoming episode:

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Tuesdays at 9/8C.
