    The S.H.I.E.L.D.C.A.S.T. is joined by Oliver Sava from the AV Club to discuss the fourth episode of the first season, "Eye Spy." Pascale Armand guest stars as a rogue agent trying to steal secrets, but there's more to her than first meets the eye--literally. How is this episode aesthetically different from the previous three? Are we likely to see mutants in the near future? And is developing more Marvel shows for television really the best idea in the long run? Tune in for discussions on all this, and more. Plus, Oliver and Bibbs educate non-comic enthusiasts on SHIELD's potential enemies, and the gang welcomes an honorary member of the team.
