Watch the Cold Open for Season 3 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The premiere for season three of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. isn't until next Tuesday on ABC, but they've released the cold episode of that episode early, a full five minutes of juicy material. It seems a lot has changed since season two's finale, when S.H.I.E.L.D. was battling with Jiaying (Dichen Lachman) and her army of Inhumans.

The opening sequence is a stunner—the ruins of a kitchen and some petrified body parts, including a pair of legs still standing. It brings to mind the aftermath of Pompeii, and it's a doozy of beginning. In the cold open, we're introduced to Constance Zimmer's mysterious government figure,Rosalind Price (read our interview with Zimmer here, albeit for another project but a lovely actress to speak with), and a brand new Inhuman.

There's a whole lot going on here in the first five minutes that S.H.I.E.L.D. fans will want to dig into. Season three's premiere can't come soon enough.
