"The Good Samaritan" is the sixth episode of the fourth season of the television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the seventy-second episode overall.


The shocking origin story of Robbie's transition into Ghost Rider is revealed as the lives of Coulson and the team hang in the balance.

Plot Edit

Mace sends Simmons on a secret assignment, then takes a team to board Coulson's plane and arrest Robbie. The latter hides with Johnson and a newly picked up Gabe, explaining that he had let Gabe sneak out with him to race in Morrow's car, but they were attacked by the Locos. Gabe was paralyzed and Robbie was killed, but as he died, Robbie promised an unknown voice that he would do anything to look after Gabe, and came back to life as another Ghost Rider passed him that power. Mace finds the fugitives, but agrees to let Coulson use Robbie against Lucy after the Ghost Rider overpowers Mace in a fight. Fitz tracks Lucy to an abandoned Roxxon power plant, where she warns Robbie that Morrow craves the Darkhold's power himself—he had intentionally created the ghosts, and Joseph had ordered the hit on Morrow's car to try stop him—before Robbie destroys her. Morrow activates an improved version of the Momentum machine and gains the power to create matter. Robbie, Fitz, and Coulson disappear from the facility.
