“Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 3 premiered on Tuesday, on ABC. The first episode, titled “Laws of Nature,” started the Secret Warriors storyline where Daisy (Chloe Bennet) began to gather the new Inhumans. Read on for the “Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” season 3 episode 1 recap.

In “Laws of Nature,” Daisy and Mack (Henry Simmons) began looking for new Inhumans, or alien-human hybrids with superpowers, hoping to help them make successful transformations. Lincoln (Luke Mitchell) thought of his power as a curse and wanted to have a normal life, which means just being a doctor. Lash (Matthew Willig) stopped Lincoln’s plans when he appeared, killing Inhumans with his energy. Lash also showed his ability to make walls disappear. Daisy and Lincoln were not strong enough to stop the new enemy. She tried to convince Lincoln to join S.H.I.E.L.D. but the latter ran away.

Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) was still adjusting to the changes in Skye, who changed her name to Daisy. Coulson also worked his way around his new arm.

A black ops team, called the Advanced Threat Containment Unit (A.T.C.U.), is also hunting down the Inhumans. Their leader, Rosalind Price (Constance Zimmer of “UnREAL”) distracted Coulson by trapping him and Hunter (Nick Blood). There are speculations that the two might be working together in the future to battle Lash.

Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) travelled to Tangier, Morocco to acquire an artifact that might have answers to the Kree monolith and eventually lead him to Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). He dealt with several arms dealers only to find that the artifact was a piece of paper with the word “death” written in Hebrew. He screamed at the monolith after nothing happened.

Gregg told TVLine that there is actually no conflict between Coulson and Daisy. Coulson’s strong point is allowing people to develop their full potential. He believed that Daisy, or Skye, has always been special and possessed leadership skills. That’s why he promoted her as leader of the Secret Warriors. Gregg also explained the concept of the Secret Warriors, which was to gather a team with special powers.

IGN writes that “Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 3 feels like it is in a new place as far as the team is concerned. The A.T.C.U. and the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division (S.H.I.E.L.D.) are expected to meet every now and then as they continue the search for Inhumans, although it is worthy to note that the black ops team are not actually evil. Plus, fans are eager to know where Simmons is and hopefully, her location will be revealed in the show’s new season..

“Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” airs Tuesdays at 9 pm on ABC.
