Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Will Pick Up Where Thor: The Dark World Left Off

Just a couple of days ago Comic Book Brain Splatter shared Wired's interview with Marvel TV bossman Jeph Loeb.  In it, Loeb teased the idea of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. having to evolve alongside the events of the ever-expanding MCU.  It was pretty clear given that S.H.I.E.L.D. only has 22 guaranteed episodes that the events of Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier would tie into the show.

Today, in their "Declassifying Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." piece, Marvel revealed that the November 19th episode of the show, The Well, would deal with the fallout of their newest film, Thor: The Dark World. Apparently, one of the Agents will find himself in danger while trying to clean up the pieces of the invasion of Earth by the Dark Elves.

This is an absolutely great move by Marvel and an almost sure-fire ratings boost. What do you guys expect form this tie-in?
