Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. left us in December not with a cliffhanger but with a cliff-exploder. In "What They Become" we finally got to see the "evolution" that Raina had been working toward for the last season and a half: Raina and Skye were encased by obelisk crystals and emerged with ground-shaking powers. Now ABC has released its first trailer for the following episode … in which we get a hint of what they became.

You'll see it for yourselves, below. Skye is no longer the quick-witted do-gooder with daddy issues. She's something more than that. Mark our words, there will be trouble ahead.

In "What They Become," Skye and Raina's transformation came with consequences, as Agent Triplett, disintegrated in the process that separated the humans from the Inhumans. It won't be the only one —especially as it seems that Skye doesn't yet know how to control her new abilities (we expect nothing less than dire consequences from Joss Whedon's team; after all, this is the man who killed and resurrected Buffy, to devastating effect).

Will Skye turn to her father for help? Or, worse, Raina? Will she finish off Ward with her newfound abilities? Will she still remain an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.?

All we know is what we see in the trailer: There's something very wrong with Skye. And we'll learn what's wrong when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns on March 3.
