Season 3:

In Season 3, Ward true plans are mysterious but he appears to be creating a new Hydra organization.

Actor Brett Dalton revealed in a interview with ComicVine more about Ward vision of this new Hydra.
"This is not like your father’s HYDRA. In the past, they have been about world domination and all these things like that. It’s not so much pro-world domination as it is anti-S.H.I.E.L.D. This is the yin to Coulson’s yang. This is HYDRA in Ward’s vision. Ward isn’t for formality and all of that. Nobody’s twirling their mustache in this particular version of HYDRA. Nobody’s spitting back with their sniveling or cackling in an evil way. That’s not what this is about this season. It’s maybe a more stripped down version of it. But it’s going to be cool because this is somebody that we know is extremely capable and might have a grudge or two against Coulson. S.H.I.E.L.D. can be directly responsible, in his eyes, for two failed relationships that he’s tried to have which were very important to him—one with Skye and one with Agent 33. If it weren’t for S.H.I.E.L.D. meddling in all his affairs, he’d be a much happier man. So there’s an axe to grind."

Grant makes connections with Gideon Mallick a remaining high level Hydra member.  He then is selected to lead a mission to the planet Maveth in order to retrieve the Inhuman Founder of Hydra.  He is killed on the mission by Agent Coulson.  However his body is reanimated and controlled by the Inhuman Founder known as Hive.
