So, as any fans of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D know, on Maveth, when Phil Coulson supposedly killed Grant Ward, Ward's body becomes possessed by an ancient alien god, known as Hive, which Hydra was created to bring back to Earth.
When the new previews for the next episode, s03e11 premiered, they showed Hive creating a dust body imprint, and shooting it at the inhuman with eyes that will freeze people. When on Maveth, there were (almost) always sandstorms when Hive was near.
Are these connected? The previews, along with the episodes "Maveth" and "4722 Hours" give the impression that the sand/dust storms are his primary attack ability. They could be his method of subduing his next victims, or they could be used to copy/steal their inhuman powers.
On Maveth, the dust clouds took no particular shape, but now, since Hive has a new host, maybe he can control it more? He is also gaining strength after living on a deserted planet for thousands of years, so that could also be a factor in controlling his powers.
Since the show has not specificall stated/showed that these are Hive's abilities, we cannot be too sure that these are his powers, this is just speculation. One thing is for certain though; S.H.I.E.L.D will have a hard time dealing with him.
