First Details Emerge for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Episode 1.06, "FZZT"

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has performed very well according to the ratings despite some insipid hate from fanboys and girls. The show remains among the top-viewed and it is just getting going.  It's worth pointing out that a lot of us, myself included, were not big fans of Arrow after 3 episodes last season but, given a full season, the show changed a lot of minds.  I'd expect Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. do do the same.

While big picture details about the direction of the first season remain under wraps, Marvel has done a nice job of getting info out about each episode with just enough bait to get a bite.  Today they released a few tidbits on the sixth episode, "FZZT." "FZZT", according to the official release, puts our team in a precarious spot: "When floating bodies turn up, Couslon and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. must hunt down an elusive killer.  No one is safe--not even the team--."  The site goes on to inform us that Titus Welliver, who portrayed Agent Blake, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the Marvel One Shot, Item 47, will be bringing his portrayal of Blake to the small screen.

Floating bodies and FZZT...bodies showing up from other dimensions?  Being electrocuted?  What are your postulations?
