Warning: There are minor spoilers ahead for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season three, especially if you’re not up to date!
After three seasons and countless betrayals, former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) is dead. Unfortunately, Ward’s body is now inhabited by an alien being of immense power who may have been responsible for the formation of Hydra itself. Now the creature inside of Ward is back on Earth and the S.H.I.E.L.D. team may not have the power to stop his plans.
During last night’s Agent Carter, ABC released the first trailer from the midseason premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. As we can see, Ward’s body still bears the palm print of Agent Coulson’s (Clark Gregg) artificial hand, which crushed Ward to death.
The trailer also features the return of President Matthew Ellis (William Sadler) as he consults with Coulson about the “Inhuman problem.” This suggests that S.H.I.E.L.D. may once again be acting in an officially sanctioned capacity following the reveal that the ATCU was compromised by Hydra and Gideon Malick (Powers Boothe).
It also appears that there’s a superhuman arms race to get control of the emerging Inhuman population. After only introducing a handful of new Inhuman teammates in the first half of the season, it looks like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is finally diving into the Secret Warriors. And of course, there’s a few kickass moments with Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki) and Agent May (Ming-Na Wen).
