However, Coulson and the team soon find out that they are not the only group looking for these new Inhumans.
On the season premiere episode, "Laws of Nature," when Coulson and the team discover a new Inhuman, S.H.I.E.L.D. comes face to face with another organization searching for powered people.

"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." already announced a "Secret Warriors" storyline for season three. In the "Secret Warriors" comic series by Brian Michael Bendis, Alex Maleev, Jonathan Hickman and Stefano Caselli, Daisy Johnson (a.k.a. Quake) leads a sleeper team of superpowered peers called a caterpillar team. After Terrigen was exposed to the general population at the end of "S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" second season, leading to an anticipated boom of Enhanced people, it seems as though Skye will get her own sleeper super team in the show -- something that was teased when Coulson handed her a blue folder labeled "Caterpillar" in the season finale.
"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." season three premieres Tuesday, September 29 at 9 pm EST on ABC.
