Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returned last week with a brand new season, and with it, a bit of a new direction as well. In the opening scene of Episode 3.2 “”Purpose in the Machine,” we saw the introduction of a new Inhuman, jumpstarting Daisy’s (Chloe Bennet) and Coulson’s (Clark Gregg) search for more of her kind in hopes of forming a S.H.I.E.L.D. regulated group of secret warriors (see what I did there?). We were also introduced to a new shadow organization with deep ties to the U.S. government, because with Hydra out of the picture (for now), someone’s got to play spy vs. spy with S.H.I.E.L.D. And finally — Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) was being chased around on some alien planet by who knows what, while her best friend Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) screamed uncontrollably at the monolith (trust me, it was intense) that brought her there.

But what about Ward (Brett Dalton)? Or May (Ming-Na Wen)? Or May’s gun that she brought with her on sabbatical?

Spoilers ahead…

Spoilers for the first two seasons of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ahead…

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. began its run in the fall of 2013 almost as a “super-power light” procedural, dealing with both the positive and negative effects of enhanced beings living amongst humans. The show had a slow start…a very slow start, but all that changed after Captain America: Winter Soldier. With the events of the movie causing a lasting impact on the series, the storylines progressed in a strong and fast-paced manner. By the time season two began, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. felt like a drastically different series, as the organization — at least in the public’s eye — was no more. Newly appointed director Agent Phil Colson (Clark Gregg) was given the task of rebuilding S.H.I.E.L.D. with the help of a very small group of surviving members.

  |  @   |  

Fans watching ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are familiar with the shaky relationship shared between ex-spouses Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood). The two always seem to have an ulterior motive or are just hiding secrets from each other.

Now a new report says that another newly announced Marvel TV spinoff could expand on that. Hit the jump for more.
