(SPOILER) Promo for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 1x05 'Girl in the Flower Dress'. This episode will air next week. On the 29th, ABC are showing a repeat of the pilot.

Centipede's return? And I can't wait to see Chloe Bennet emote.

It's also very interesting how they'll deal with the "mutant" question. How will they have a seemingly human man with pyrokinesis without involving in some way the X-Men problem?

Perseo, just from the promo I'm pretty sure the pyrokinesis is the result of the injections he's being given.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe tends to be very science-based and I'd be surprised to see anything mutantesque on the show.
Yeah, the promo does indicate that it's due to the injections, they did something a bit similar on Iron Man 3, maybe they're going to link it back to that....

But I wouldn't mind to see some 'mutant' X-men cross over. I suppose there are rules about how much they can actually cross over, isn't it.
Oooh, now I'm excited.
I interpreted it differently according to the scene order: Ruth Negga's character finds the guy, and then they enhance him. But I could very well be wrong.
Looks like that betrayal didn't take as long as I thought. Good! And it explains why they went out of their way to have Coulson and Skye bonding in the last ep. Though this being a promo, I wouldn't be surprised if there was some misdirection.

I think they're calling the mutants "gifted", if the need arises. Wasn't there a line like that in the pilot?
Yes. "Unregistered gifted" was the line.
Right! Thank you, Simon.
My first response from seeing this was "This could be the introduction of Sunfire (old and brief member of the X-Men), reinvisioned as a created superhuman, not a mutant. Either way, I'm excited!
Did I read something about Marvel still owning TV rights to all its franchises, including X-Men? I doubt, just for the sake of keeping movie/TV franchise synergy intact, that they'd start putting X-Men into SHIELD, but can anyone confirm for me if this is the case?
