We’re only a few short days away from Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returning from it’s mid-season break and ABC has released a new clip from the episode titled “Bouncing Back”. The short clip from the episode introduces Elena Rodriguez, played by Natalia Cordova-Buckley, as the character Yo Yo Rodriguez aka Slingshot.
This is the first member from the Secret Warriors comic series, besides Daisy Johnson of course, that will be joining the series and has been described as “a street-wise Colombian woman given Inhuman abilities.” Definitely looks like they nailed her speed powers and I can’t wait for the character to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe next week. What about you? Check out the clip & synopsis for the episode below and sound off with your thoughts in the comments section afterwards.
BIGGER THREATS LOOM AHEAD AS THE TEAM TRIES TO STRIKE DOWN HYDRA, ON THE MIDSEASON PREMIERE OF “MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.” ON ABC
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” returns for a game-changing second half of Season Three, TUESDAY, MARCH 8 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EST) on the ABC Television Network.
In the midseason 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?
