The on-off schedule is a bit wonky for ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but the small-screen Marvel spinoff is new again this week — and here’s our first look.

The episode looks to follow the team as they search for the mysterious Clairvoyant, and that mission takes them on a high-speed train full of enemy agents. We’d imagine this new footage is the cold-open, which shows Agent Ward getting jumped and having to fight his way out of a train car.

This Tuesday’s new episode will also mark the beginning of the highly touted Deathlok arc, with Mike Peterson (J. August Richards) fighting the enemy within for his freedom to see if he’ll rejoin S.H.I.E.L.D. or become a new nemesis. The pitch definitely has potential, and we can't wait to see what they do with it. This episode also features that Stan Lee cameo, so keep an eye out for Excelsior, as well.

Check out the footage below and let us know what you think:

Though it had a few logic gaps, the most recent episode set at the S.H.I.E.L.D. academy was one of the show’s strongest hours, so here’s hoping Joss Whedon and company are finally hitting their stride.

So, are you still watching, or are you one of the losers who gave up?
