Since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has returned from it’s winter break, we have been waiting for Hive to live up to the hype that comes with being the first and possibly most powerful Inhuman of all time. So far he has been looming behind the scenes, but in tonight’s episode we finally saw him get out of Hydra’s base.

In the promo above for next week’s episode, “Paradise Lost,” released by Television Promos, Hive takes the focus of not only S.H.I.E.L.D. but also what looks to be the entire episode. It looks like the team is trying to figure out how Ward is still a threat to them, as the end of the promo starts to show the full form of Hive. The synopsis for the episode is as follows,
