Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: A Hen in the Wolf House

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 2 Episode 5 “A Hen in the Wolf House” aired on Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on ABC. Simmons was revealed as the mole while working undercover in Hydra’s lab, and a new agent showed up. Moreover, Skye learned that her father is still alive. Read on to learn more about this episode.

Previously on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (“A Hen in the Wolf House”), military officers were poisoned in a wedding event. Some died, while some was sick. These officers were targeted because they were anti-Hydra. Bakshi (Sunil Kassianides) was disappointed with the outcome of this mission.


Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) was summoned to a meeting with Hydra executives. Whitehall (Reed Diamond) asked her if they can utilize the Obelisk as a weapon for mass destruction, to which Simmons replied that it is possible.

Raina (Ruth Negga) was very desperate to get the Obelisk and give it to Whitehall. She asked the Doctor (Kyle MacLachlan) if she could take it first then hand it to Whitehall and find a way to get it back. However, the Doctor refused and demanded that Raina bring him his daughter. Raina then caught Simmons reporting to S.H.I.E.L.D. and took a picture of her.

Meanwhile, a Hydra officer and the guards went into the lab for inspection. They learned that there was a mole in the lab. Simmons tried not to panic and had her co-worker take the blame.

Raina called Coulson (Clark Gregg) and asked him to meet with her. Coulson agreed, with the other agents working undercover. Raina blackmailed Coulson into exposing Simmons. The only thing that would stop her from doing so was for Coulson to give Skye (Chloe Bennet) to her so she could be with her father. Skye heard everything. Time was running, but Coulson was firmed. Raina left without Skye.

In another scene, we saw Skye talking to Ward (Brett Dalton). She learned that Garrett (Bill Paxton) was also carving symbols like Coulson. She then went to Coulson to talk to him about this. Coulson revealed to Skye that his behavior, like Garrett’s, was triggered by the GH formula. As for Skye, she did not have any reactions when she was injected with the alien DNA because it is already in her system. So our girl, Skye, is an alien?

Simmons was now exposed. As she was about to get caught, the woman suddenly beat the two guards with her. It was revealed that she was also a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki).  Bobbi helped Skye to get to the roof, as the QuinJet was waiting for them there. They jumped off the building, and we saw them on top of the invisible jet operated by Trip (B.J. Britt).

Skye went to her father’s hideout, but he already left. Coulson followed Skye and promised her that they would look for him. May (Ming-Na Wen) called them as two men were found dead. Even before Coulson learned that they were being watched, Skye was obviously disgusted with what her father has done and called him a monster. The Doctor saw this and smashed the tablet.

The episode ended with the Doctor walking to Whitehall’s office and offering him a deal — the Obelisk, aka the Diviner, and working together to kill Coulson. He also offered Whitehall to teach him how to survive the Obelisk.

As for Raina, Coulson will use her to get to Whitehall. We also learned that Bobbi is Hunter’s (Nick Blood) ex-wife who he usually referred to as she-devil. Moreover, just as Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) bid goodbye to imaginary Simmons, the real one arrived.
