Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns in a big way this week with the premiere of Season 3. If you can't wait until Tuesday night, we have another sneak peek at this episode titled Laws of Nature. It comes just after we showed you the 4-minute opening scene. If you're not careful, you might see the whole thing before ABC has a chance to debut Laws of Nature in full!
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 left many questions for fans to ponder over the summer. Especially about the future of the Inhumans. The case full of Terrigen crystals were dropped into the ocean after an epic battle with Jiaying. They were quickly eaten by fish, and in turn produced terrigen-laced fish oil, which has been packages and sold in a local drug store. Only a select few Inhumans went through their full transformations. Anyone who supports Kree-modified genetics gained super powers once they downed one of these terrigen pills.
In Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3, Coulson and Daisy Johnson (aka Quake) will be bringing together the Secret Warriors. They are sure to face plenty of new challenges. These include plenty of new villains ripped right out of the pages of a Marvel comic book. We'll also see Rosalind Price's Advanced Threat Containment Unit. But perhaps their greatest challenge when we meet back up with Coulson and Quake is the fact that they'll have to convince the once-friendly Inhuman Lincoln to join their team.
And that's where we pick up with these S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in this new clip. We get to see what became of Lincoln after he discovered Jiaying's evil plan. He has gone into hiding as a medical resident, hoping to build a new life for himself away from all the 'powered people'. Daisy and her new partner Mack need Lincoln to join their team. They try to convince him by showing how they've helped newly transformed Inhumans contend with their malady peacefully. Though, Lincoln calls the Inhuman powers a 'curse'. He just wants to be left alone. As he tells Mack, this is one guy who is not taking orders from anyone.
In all likelihood, he will come around. Its suspected that Lincoln will eventually join S.H.I.E.L.D. and help them in their quest. Two things make this plausible. He's one of the few fully developed Inhumans, and he's been featured on the posters leading up to this Tuesday's big debut. His joining the team will surely help speed up the creation of the Secret Warriors. And he seems like a natural fit. Lincoln has helped other Inhumans transition into their powers, and he was trained under Jiaying.
One of the other questions left lingering from Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 is: Will ingesting these Terrigen-infused fish oil capsules will kill off anyone without an Inhuman gene? Perhaps a recall will be issued, getting the pills off the market? As of now, it sounds like enough people have already consumed these pills to trigger a mass transformation. And S.H.I.E.L.D. will be competing with the ATCU to get them off shelves. How will the Inhumans fit into the newly formed team, especially since some of the older members have a problem with 'powered people'? Guess we'll find out when Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 premieres September 29th at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC. Take a look at this latest sneak peek.
