Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has released the first promo for next week’s episode, which will feature the hotly anticipated return of fan favorite Patton Oswalt as identical brothers and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Sam and Billy Koenig.

But first: Oh. My Gosh. This week's S.H.I.E.L.D. episode had some pretty awesome twists when *SPOILERS* it was revealed that Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) had his own Life Model Decoy, and May's (Ming-Na Wen) "escape" —which had been teased in previous promos and clips — was really part of a simulation (although this one became an easy call as soon as the episode kicked off, it was still great to see May kick the c#@p out of Aida, even if none of it was real).  

Next week's installment, "Hot Potato Soup," will see the Koenigs returning to the show. The teaser reveals one of the brothers is currently the keeper of the Darkhold and they're now being hunted down by Senator Nadeer's men (guys, I gotta say, Parminder Nagra is doing a great job at making me utterly hate despise her character).

If Oswalt's return wasn't exciting enough, showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen also promised the episode will reveal the Koenig "family secret," so it'll be interesting to see what that secret will turn out to be.

Check out the new promo and episode synopsis below.

"Hot Potato Soup" – Agents Sam and Billy Koenig (Patton Oswalt) are hunted down to get at the Darkhold book, and only Coulson and the team can save them before the clock ticks out.
