Daisy offers a life lesson, Rosalind Price presents a mystery, and Lincoln makes a choice in clips from the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 premiere.
In the thrilling opening minutes of “Laws of Nature”, Daisy Johnson and her team rescued a new Inhuman from the clutches of Constance Zimmer’s Rosalind Price. The cold open established Price and her task force as a serious threat – and one seemingly disinclined to treat new Inhumans with understanding and compassion.
Luckily for Joey, the new Inhuman has Daisy Johnson to explain the sudden madness of his new abilities.
A second clip from the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 premiere also makes it clear that Joey is unusually fortunate among the new crop of Terrigen-exposed Inhumans, in that S.H.I.E.L.D. got to him first. (Also, we get a nifty look at Coulson’s new hand!)
Rosalind Price’s identity is the subject of another, brief-but-juicy sneak peek from “Laws of Nature.”
This scene reveals two rather interesting tidbits of information. First, Constance Zimmer’s character has gone under various aliases in the past, meaning that “Rosalind Price” be another cover for an established Marvel character.
Second, circumstances have clearly chilled between Hunter and Bobbi – which is kind of heartbreaking, given that they nearly died for each other in the season 2 finale. We can’t help but wonder what kind of tension could have come between the couple, who seemed so emphatically “on-again.”
A finale scene released from the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 premiere sheds light on a different kind of tension between Daisy and Lincoln.
We wish Lincoln luck in trying to keep his hands clean of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Inhumans — both forces that have their own gravitational pull in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It was also bizarrely nice to see the Simmons-swallowing Monolith get a shoutout in this clip. While it makes sense that ABC is keeping mum on the season 2-ending shocker, it’s past time someone remembered that Fitz and Simmons still exist.
Speaking of which, as patient as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans are, a hint as to Agent May’s whereabouts would also be greatly appreciated…
…or we could just wait until Tuesday.
The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 premiere, “Laws of Nature,” airs Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 9:00 p.m. on ABC.
