(SPOILER) Synopsis and cast list for Agents of SHIELD 2.02 "Heavy is the Head". Find out who is guesting in this episode.

Not for nothing, but isn't it "uneasy lies the head that wears a crown"?
Perhaps there is an explanation in the story.
It's a bit of a stretch, but T.I. did an album partly inspired by Marvin Gaye's "Trouble Man" called "Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head"... Marvin's song (or the album or the movie?) was mentioned in "Winter Soldier"...
I've always known it as "heavy is the head that wears the crown", but it could well have been bastardized over the years. I imagine it's a reference to Coulson's new Directorship, but there have been a few rumours of a Chris Evans cameo...

Glad to see Nick Blood is no longer pulling double duty by starring and guest-starring.


Kyle MacLachlan as The Doctor

I also know it is as Heavy is the Head etc. The phrase also appears in Limp Bizkit and Kate Petty songs.
What QingTing said!
The original is "uneasy lies the head" from Shakespeare's "Henry IV".
I had the same reaction as Matt7325: "What if they're doing a crossover?" :P
Welcome back Raina!
Yep, it's from Henry IV. Beat me to it, QingTing :)
Oh good, I like Raina a lot.
