Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3: Watch the First, Whiz-Bang 4-Plus Minutes

If you can’t wait another five days for the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 premiere, here are nearly five minutes to appease you. For now.

Yep, we’ve got the entire cold open from Tuesday’s opener (ABC, 9/8c), in which you’ll meet Joey (played by Narcos‘ Juan Pablo Raba), a heretofore mild-mannered dude who happened upon a “bad” batch of fish oil supplements and now is struggling to process his (very cool) Inhuman ability.

But as Joey freaks out, black Escalades chase him — though it’s not S.H.I.E.L.D. agents behind the wheel. Rather, you’ll catch a glimpse of the ATCU (Advanced Threat Containment Unit) boss lady played by Constance Zimmer (UnREAL).

Fear not, there are friendlies among us, too, including Skye Daisy (now clad in her official and functional Quake costume), as well as some brand-spanking new S.H.I.E.L.D. toys (one of which had me humming Willy Wonka‘s “Pure Imagination”).

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  1. Um, why didn’t his hands melt the asphalt? lol #budgetconstraints.

  2. LDMRNJ says:

    Can. Not. Wait.

  3. Jason. P says:

    this seems like a sort of reboot this season

    • Michelle Smith says:

      They must’ve been planning all along to get to Quake and the Secret Warriors team, they just took so long that they lost a chunk of people. I’m glad I stuck with it, though! :)

  4. Rose says:

    Love the new Badass Coulson. As for the melting? Metal-reactive? Hopefully, that will be explained.

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Good first 4 minutes of season premiere. Can’t wait to watch season premiere next week!

  6. Sarah_ says:

    Great first minutes can’t wait for the rest of the episodes.

  7. Wordsmith says:

    The new Bus is looking good. It’s like a quinjet and a helicarrier had a baby.

  8. Jada says:

    I love Skye/Daisy!! Can’t wait for this season!

    Disneyland’s next E-ticket ride

    • Wordsmith says:

      Ha. Actually, I could totally see them doing this, if only Disney owned the theme park rights to the Marvel universe. But because of the legal issues, we will probably never see a ride based on material from the cinematic universe.

  10. Mike Rapino says:

    This show has come so far.

  11. So Happy says:

    I am soooooo excited about the new season coming up! :D

    Veeery Interesting. Wonder what the rate of survival will be for the people taking the fish oil. One in a thousand, ten thousand, etc. Looks like its time to buy stock in funeral companies.

    Will need to watch it again to see if his foot contacts affect where his powers are released.

    And what of Hydra. Are they also going to be stockpiling resources for the future?

    And how this will tie-in to the various movies yet to come.

  13. acurat says:

    Not surprised. It is all about Agent Colson, Daisy Johnson (Quake), and the new big bad. This season will be all about the inhumans, full stop. And the special effects budget will be spent on that. No more flying car. Not a bad thing, just a different show. Just hope enough stay watching.

  14. JrGooNer says:

    I thought it was obvious that they were making a point of showing his hands touching the asphalt and the crates so we could easily understand it’s only metal it works with

    • Robert Dassler says:

      I wouldn’t get in the way of a good nit-picking. The anti-fans are out in force, it would appear. This is four minutes of awesomeness that I have been waiting all summer for.

  15. Mattia says:

    you have an exclusive for photos, or where you take them?

  16. username says:

    Those were Chevrolet Suburbans, not Escalades.
