An Asgardian Returns in New "Agents of SHIELD" Season 3 Photos

With the premiere of the third season of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." less than a week away, anticipation continues to build for the return of Director Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team, as well as the "Secret Warriors" storyline teased since the second season finale. To help amp that excitement even further, ABC has released a new set of photos from the second episode of the season, "Purpose in the Machine."

The new photos document Coulson's team continuing the search for Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), who last we saw her was absorbed into a Kree stone, possibly lost forever. Joining the team to help find her is Peter MacNicol's Elliot Randolph, an Asgardian who lives in hiding on Earth (AKA Midgard).

Check out the photos and the official synopsis below.

Fitz and the team enlist the aid of an Asgardian to unlock the secrets of the ancient monolith that swallowed Simmons, and Agent May is at a crossroads in her personal and professional life.

"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Season Three premieres Tuesday, September 29 at 9 pm EST on ABC.
