Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are on the run in a new clip from the Season 6 premiere.
The clip opens with a wide shot of an alien planet, just before the S.H.I.E.L.D. Quinjet zooms across the landscape. As it weaves between jagged peaks, the scene cuts to the interior of the ship, with Agent Davis in the pilot's chair. With an assist from Agent Piper, they discover that whatever was chasing them was no longer on their radar.
However, as soon as they land the Quinjet, an incoming message informs them they have violated a Galactic Ordinance by entering the Durilian atmosphere without proper clearance. "Prepare to be boarded," the alien barks, and boarded they are by a handful of alien soldiers carrying weapons.
Quake greeted them upon entry and told them she was unarmed. After a curt exchange, she informed them they will give her the fuel she needs. As the alien's leader laughed in response to her demand, their identity scan came through. "Quake," he hissed, only for her to destroy their weapons in their hands. At that, they fled, with only their leader remaining behind. Quake easily defeated him in hand-to-hand combat.
"Give us what we want and we'll let you live to cry about it," Simmons said, entering the cargo bay. "You want fuel, it's yours," the alien responded. Simmons revealed they are looking for someone -- that is, Fitz -- and they just want to bring him home.
At the end of Season 5, Simmons promised she would search for Fitz, who is in cryosleep in deep space. Judging by this clip, she will make good on that and bring Quake, Davis and Piper along for the ride.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is set to return to ABC on Friday, May 10 at 8 pm ET/PT with 13 new episodes. The series stars Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Henry Simmons, Iain De Caestecker, Natalia Cordova-Buckley, Elizabeth Henstridge and Clark Gregg.
