Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3's pre-finale episode will pick up after the events of Captain America: Civil War and eventually tie it in with the movie. In Civil War, people with special abilities like the Avengers will be forced to register with the government.

Episode 20 of the Marvel show is titled Emancipation, where S.H.I.E.L.D. will be forced to register the Inhumans after the superhero registration act is passed in Civil War. The synopsis for the episode airing on 10 May reads as follows:

The show's plotline is currently focused on the Inhuman Hive, who have taken over the dead body of ex-S.H.I.E.L.D. agent (and Hydra leader) Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) and started to assemble his own group of followers, including agent Daisy Johnson, and their endgame is to create a new world order, filled with Inhumans.

In the previous episode, Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons finally gave in to their feelings and had sex. Executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen spoke to Entertainment Weekly about Fitz and Simmons's next step and shared: "We imagine they spend the morning after laughing a lot about what just happened. We want their relationship to feel like their friendship did, because all the best relationships are just that. So moving forward, while this change in their friendship would hopefully only deepen their connection, it is bound also to make things a bit more complicated."

Agents of SHIELD season 3 airs every Tuesday at 9pm EST on ABC Network and Captain America: Civil War releases in theaters on 6 May in the US.
