Agent Carter wrapped up its second season just a couple days ago, but Marvel doesn’t have time to stop and take a knee — Agents of SHIELD starts right back up on ABC next Tuesday night!

We’ve seen a trailer for the upcoming third season that featured some pretty cool superpowers from both characters we know and characters we’ll meet soon enough. But now, we’ve got our first clip for the Spring premiere, titled “Bouncing Back,” which sees Director Coulson and Leo Fitz having a brief discussion about their Inhuman team mate Lincoln, who’s apparently working with Jemma Simmons now to figure out Inhuman biology.

The conversation quickly turns to Maveth and what Leo had to do back on that planet before then turning to Coulson opening up a secret chamber and instructing Leo to prep “the machine.”

We can only assume that this was the machine that they used on Coulson to help him recover his memories, but who are they going to use it on?

It’s clear that Coulson is making a full tilt towards Gideon Malick to get him out of the picture once and for all. And from the episode description below, we know Coulson’s motivation is to eradicate Malick and Hydra, but he seems vehemently determined — like villain level determination.

How deep down this rabbit hole will Coulson fall?

In the mid-season premiere, “Bouncing Back,” in the aftermath of his trip to Maveth, Coulson is more determined than ever to get to Gideon Malick and put an end to Hydra once and for all. Meanwhile, Daisy and the team encounter more Inhumans who have powers like they’ve never seen before, but will they be friends or enemies of S.H.I.E.L.D.?

No longer able to keep powered people out of the public eye, Daisy and Mack press forward to find more Inhumans, building a team of secret warriors whose mission is to train and protect powered people. However, the growing presence of Inhumans proves to be a polarizing issue, and the S.H.I.E.L.D. team must face conflicting public opinions and defend their team from groups who have a more extreme ideology.

The divide between those who want to protect Inhumans and those who seek to destroy them is constantly widening, and Hydra, now strengthened by Grant Ward, looms once again. However, Ward is no longer the same villainous traitor that they once knew, and the team faces an all-new enemy, whose motivations, goals and strengths are unclear. Uncertain about who (or what) they are facing, the stakes for S.H.I.E.L.D. and their assembled group of Secret Warriors are higher than ever, bringing some members of the team closer together and driving others apart. Will S.H.I.E.L.D. be able to stop one of the most powerful Inhumans to walk the Earth?
