“Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 2 is going head-to-head with Hydra again in episode 3, but this time some familiar faces will be involved. As previously reported, Donnie Gill (Dylan Minnette) will be a target for both S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra, but he won’t be the only familiar face in the episode. The team will also run into the real Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) -- as opposed to Fitz’s hallucination of her that has been in the past two episodes -- but it won’t be a happy reunion. Everything is looking pretty bleak in the new sneak peek videos.
Sneak Peek #1
Skye (Chloe Bennett) has to go back to Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) to get information on how Hydra works. Ward explains that most Hydra soldiers don’t have a choice when they work for the organization. They convince people, and Skye notes that they “suckered” him into fighting for Hydra.
“I was never loyal to Hydra,” Ward says. “I was loyal to Garrett.”
Ward explains he takes responsibility for his actions, but it was never about Hydra. His family brought him down while Garrett built him up.
“We’re all aware of who your family is, Ward,” Skye says. “Not only are they respected, they’re pretty much loved.”
"Well every family has its secrets. Yours does too. You ever wonder why --," Ward begins.
Skye cuts him off and reprimands herself for talking to him casually. She wants to stay on target and find out how Hydra works. Ward explains Hydra either convinces or captures their target. If neither of those options works, they kill them. Skye doesn’t understand why they kill the target if they aren’t an immediate threat, but Ward clarifies anyone who doesn’t want to be with Hydra is a threat.
“That’s why Hydra will win. Because while a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent is considering right and wrong, Hyrda is already taking the shot,” Ward says.

Sneak Peek #2
Simmons wakes up and goes into her morning routine as “God Help The Girl” by the band of the same name plays.
She goes through a normal morning ritual as she works out, picks an outfit and makes coffee. All seems to be going well for S.H.I.E.L.D.’s former biochemist. She is all smiles as she enters an office building and greets Theo, a security guard.
“That smile, a breath of sunshine in an otherwise dreary morning,” Theo says.
Simmons puts her thumb on a scanner to get on the elevator, and her smile starts to falter. She goes into a lab and puts on a black lab coat. Her boss notes that she is early, but he doesn’t want to hear about how fascinating her latest samples are.
“I’ll read all about it once you finish the report. Have it on my desk as soon as possible,” he says as he walks past a giant Hydra emblem on the wall.
