Tomorrow the third season of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD begins on ABC, and to whet appetites, the network has posted the opening sequence from the upcoming season online in its entirety.
This season’s running plotline will involve the emergence of other Inhumans besides Skye and Raina. Turns out the Terrigen Crystal material from last season got into the public water supply, and powers are being awakened like popcorn. The nearly five minute sequence below shows a confused man in mid-discovery of his own power to melt things, and SHIELD’s efforts to contain the incident, led by Skye (who has decided to officially go by “Daisy”….come on, really?) There’s one thing you can say about it — these five minutes are sure more interesting than the entirety of NBC’s microwaved rehash of Heroes from last week.
I would imagine the emergence of Inhumans will lead to a bit of panic and an effort by the government to keep track of them….some kind of Registration act, maybe? You can expect all this will eventually tie into Captain America: Civil War, out later next year.
As for Agents of SHIELD, it’s out tomorrow, at 9/8 Central on ABC.
