"Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD" fans, prepare to meet the man who helped shape Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) into a HYDRA traitor. Zap2it can exclusively reveal that viewers will be introduced to Sen. Maynard Ward, Grant’s abusive older brother, in Season 2, episode 6, “A Fractured Rose.” Better yet, the elder Ward will be played by "White Collar" star Tim Dekay.
Could Maynard be the “senator with deep pockets” Gen. Glenn Talbot (Adrian Pasdar) was referring to in Tuesday’s (Sept. 30) episode, "Heavy in the Head"
? It certainly seems likely, but if so, why is he anti-SHIELD and anti-Coulson? Is he trying to get to Ward, or does he have an even more nefarious purpose? Certainly Maynard can’t be a good guy.
