ABC have released a two-and-a-half minute preview of the next episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., titled "F.Z.Z.T." and set to air on Tuesday night at 8 p.m.
This scene is what's generally called the "cold open" in television, those few minutes that most shows have now before the opening credits. In the scene a boy scout troop camping in the woods become the victims of some strange electrical activity; their scoutmaster, Mr. Cross, takes the brunt of it. There are a great many Crosses in the Marvel Universe, but none who seem likely candidates for this character, so that name is likely a throaway in spite of having been repeated a number of times during the clip below.
S.H.I.E.L.D. fans will know that Agent Sitwell, who appeared in Item 47 and will appear in Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be involved, suggesting that the blue, electric power may again be related to the events of The Avengers, the Chitauri invasion or the Tesseract.
