Hydra attacks our favorite agents are on the run and Coulson finds a coordinates to a super secret SHIELD base called Providence. At Providence they meet quirky Agent Eric Koenig (Played by Patton Oswalt).
|Hi I'm Eric Koenig|
Agent Koenig is a likable but fairly distrustful fellow. He is also a close confidant of Nick Fury. It is Koenig who tells Coulson that Nick Fury is still alive. It also Koenig who reveal Agent Triplett had a grandfather in the howling commandos. Koenig then conducts a lie detector test on the agents trying to sniff out Hydra sleepers. Unfortunately, Ward (A hydra sleeper) manages to outsmart the test and remains hidden from the group. Later Ward kills Eric Koenig.
At one point Eric Koenig asks if Coulson would want to play video game with Koenig's brother. Apparently, the two could play online through the base. This is the only reference to Koenig's brother that I am aware of.
At the end of the season the team once again finds another super secret SHIELD base called the "Playground." At the Playground the team is met by the bases caretaker who looks and acts exactly like Eric Koenig. He says his name is Billy Koenig, Eric's twin brother.
If this were any other show that would be that, but this is a Marvel show about SHIELD and SHIELD has a technology called the LMDs. LMD stands for Life Model Decoy it is basically an android that perfectly resembles a person. Normally, LMDs are used to hide the actual person's movements. The biggest user of the LMD technology in the Marvel Universe is Nick Fury. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe LMDs have already been mentioned by Tony Stark in the Avengers so it known that they exist.
So potentially, one or both of the Koenig's are LMDs. Or potentially they really are just twins. One thing that stands out as being very un-LMD like is that an LMD is super strong. It would be very hard to kill one the way Ward did. This leads me to believe that the Koenigs really are as they say they are just ordinary twin brothers with very similar jobs.
Whether they are Twins or LMDs one question I do have is how Nick Fury came to trust the Koenig's so much that they are this deep in his internal circle.
