Given the characters’ eerily identical looks and vocal greetings, many fans have theorized that the Koenigs were actually Life Model Decoys, which have now been officially introduced in the show’s fourth season. Could this mean the Koenigs will be confirmed as LMD’s? Showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen have teased that something will be revealed: “Patton Oswalt returns as the Koenigs, and we finally reveal their family secret.”
Oswalt will return in the January 31st episode, “Hot Potato Soup”, which will see Sam and Billy being hunted down by an unknown force in relation to the Darkhold. Check out a photo from Oswalt’s return below, along with a new clip for next week’s episode, “The Patriot”.
