“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 3 will return to focus on the Secret Warriors. Daisy (Chloe Bennet) started putting a team together in the first half of the season, but they’ll be in the spotlight in the spring episodes on the ABC drama. However, a new promo video for episode 11 reveals that they still aren’t being accepted.
The trailer reveals that the President will go to Coulson (Clark Gregg) for help. “There’s a problem: Inhumans. We have to do something,” he says.
It isn’t clear what Coulson will do, but at least the government is taking a step in the right direction by looking to S.H.I.E.L.D. That doesn’t mean their Hydra connections have been cut off, though. It looks like Malick (Powers Boothe) is in a meeting with government officials in another shot.
As previously reported, the episode, titled “Bouncing Back,” will show Coulson going after Malick. Meanwhile, Daisy encounters new Inhumans, not all of whom will be ready to join her team.
S.H.I.E.L.D. will still be trying to recruit Inhumans to be Secret Warriors. At the 7-second mark in the promo video, Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez (Natalia Cordova-Buckley), aka Slingshot, appears. It looks like she confronts Mack (Henry Simmons) in episode 11. She’ll show off her superhuman speed when she runs away from him, but if Mack sticks around, he’ll also see her “slingshot” back to her starting point. Elena is a character who became a Secret Warrior in the comics, and she is likely headed for the same destiny on the TV show.
Unfortunately, the new Inhumans aren’t the only concern. It’s an old Inhuman who is their biggest threat. Ward (Brett Dalton) is still inhabited by “It,” but Ward’s body isn’t in good shape. The double agent was killed on Maveth, and it seems like his body is starting to decay. “It” might need a new host soon (and perhaps a real name, too).
