Marvel Television and ABC have released a preview for next’s week’s fifth episode of Marvel’s Inhumans.
In the episode, titled “Something Inhuman This Way Comes,” Black Bolt and Medusa are reunited but on the run from Auran and her team of Inhumans. They must work with Louise to find the remaining members of the Inhuman Royal Family, while Maximus continues to upset the social order of Attilan.
In the video above, you can see Black Bolt and Medusa trading threats with Maximus, while Karnak must rely on his faulty gift for seeing the flaw in all things to save his own life from an oncoming bullet.
Once again, the episode’s title is borrowed directly from an Inhumans comic book. In this case, “Something Inhuman This Way Comes” was an homage to Ray Bradbury’s science fiction novel Something Wicked This Way Comes and was used by Marvel in Avengers #95, the 1972 issue that brought the Inhumans into the classic “Kree-Skrull” war storyline.
The issue actually concluded an Inhumans storyline that had been running in the pages of Amazing Adventures. The story featured a plot similar to what is transpiring in Marvel’s Inhumans, with Black Bolt exiled from Attilan by his usurper brother, Maximus, and forced to wander Earth in the hopes that he could reunite with the Inhuman Royal Family in time to stop Maximus’s mad plot.
Marvel’s Inhumans airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
