When last we left Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a war between S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Inhumans was averted, but not before a few Terrigen crystals fell into the ocean, were ingested by fish that were then taken from the sea by fisherman and turned into a variety of fish products. I wonder what happens now? If you said random people emerging with Inhuman powers, you’re either a genius, or you’ve see the first five minutes of the season premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The new season begins in full this coming Tuesday, but Marvel and ABC have released a pretty effective teaser for the season premiere.
In the below preview we meet Joey (Juan Pablo Raba), who’s undergone Terrigenesis, and with his new ability to melt metal, he starts to be something of a threat to the structural integrity of his neighborhood. Never fear, S.H.I.E.L.D. is here! But wait, that’s not S.H.I.E.L.D. What’s Joey to do? Well, press play and see.

Stoked yet? That was a pretty action-packed, and effects-packed, opening sequence. The artist formally known as Skye, Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) seems to be in full kick ass mode and in the full control of her powers. I take it Mac (Henry Simmons) and Hunter (Nick Blood) are also “Secret Warriors” (if that’s what they’re called). The scene also gives us our first look at Constance Zimmer as Advanced Threat Containment Unit (ATCU) head Rosalind Price, and did you see Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) at the end playing it cool? Looks like good watching.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. begins its third season this Tuesday at 9 pm on ABC.
