Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is doing another crossover with a big-screen Marvel property: Thor heroine Lady Sif is coming to the 15th episode of the season, ABC president Paul Lee told reporters at the TCA press tour Friday.

Jaimie Alexander, who played the Asgardian goddess in both Thor films, is shooting her appearance on the show. Unlike the tacked-on throw-away addition of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury last fall, Lee assured that Lady Sif’s role is “integral” to the episode.

Lee also teased that fans will find out who the Clairvoyant is this year, and that producers have a “very cool” plan for the back half of the season. Though the show’s initial ratings plummet was worrisome, the executive said he’s feeling “very good” about the show creatively.

So SHIELD, which returns Feb. 4, is one new ABC drama this season that’s sure to return next fall. Lee noted that the network’s latest struggling drama effort Killer Women will end its run early and will be replaced by newcomer Mind Games, about two men (Christian Slater and Steve Zahn) who can tailor a plan to influence any life-altering situation.
