Meanwhile, Agent Skye (Chloe Bennet) learned more about her powers and made a life changing decision because of events that followed. In flashbacks, it was revealed how Isabelle Hartley (Lucy Lawless), Bobbi, and Commander Robert Gonzales  (Edward James Olmos) fared after the HYDRA attack on the day that S.H.I.E.L.D. fell. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began with a flashback to the day when S.H.I.E.L.D. fell, aboard the ship that later became the base for and Commander Robert Gonzales’  (Edward James Olmos) faction of S.H.I.E.LD.  Alphonso “Mack” Mackenzie (Henry  Simmons) and his team were rescued by Agent Bobbi Morse (Adrienne Palicki) and Isabelle Hartley (Lucy Lawless).


In the present day, Bobbi returned to S.H.I.E.L.D headquarters. She informed S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) that she couldn’t find Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) and she was responsible for it. Afterward, she made her way to the server room and placed something in it.

Meanwhile, Mack cut the wires of the Bus. Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) made a video call with Agent Skye (Chloe Bennet), who was currently at the “Retreat.”

Coulson then decided to give Mack a chance, and let him work with Lola in front of him. Coulson then told him that he knew that Mack had placed something inside the miniature Lola that he had given to him, and that Leo Fitz (Iain de Castecker) was currently looking into it. After Mack maintained that he was loyal to S.H.I.E.L.D, Coulson got in touch with Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen). He came to Coulson’s office just in time to see Bobbi retrieving Nick Fury’s toolbox from his table. After the two fought each other, Bobbi released an EMP, which allowed her and Mack to escape.

Fitz then informed them that the miniature Lola had been retrofitted to scan for vibranium, which was what the toolbox was made out of. They then realized that they had given Mack the schematics of the base. Fitz then left to bring the power back on.

The scene then went back to the flashback. They discovered that Gonzales was still alive but in bad shape. Bobbi then told Hartley to get everyone off so that she could blow up the ship as per Fury’s orders. Mack and Gonzales insisted on coming with her. Later, Bobbi agreed with Mack that S.H.I.E.L.D should be a democracy, and disobeyed Fury’s orders.

Back at the “Retreat,” Skye couldn’t connect to the base. She discovered that the house was made out of steel and that someone had punched the wall. She then became frightened after noticing that someone was outside, and later let Gordon (Jamie Harris) in. He explained to her that she had the ability to manipulate any object, including water. Before he disappeared, he told her that he would take her to a place where she would be with others like her. Later on, she discovered happily that she could manipulate water.

Back at S.H.I.E.L.D., Simmons managed to knock Bobbi out with a mini EMP. However, May realized too late that they were planning on gassing them all. Mack shielded Fitz from harm after Agent Calderon (Kirk Acevedo) and the others blasted they’re way in. They then took everyone prisoner, except for May, who couldn’t be found.

At the laboratory, Fitz allowed Simmons to check on Mack’s wounds after Agent Weaver (Christine Adams) showed herself to them. Meanwhile, Bobbi, Calderon, and the others went to the “Retreat,” a house that had been built by Bruce Banner.

Gonzales then told Coulson that he was just Fury’s creation. He asked him to open the toolbox, as they wanted to destroy Fury’s secrets, which, he believed caused S.H.I.E.L.D. to fall, and all the other people and objects who posed a threat to humankind. He also told Coulson what happened to him, Bobbi and Mack the day that S.H.I.E.L.D fell and believed that it should be that way. He then ordered had the toolbox taken away, but before he could do anything else, he was knocked out by May, who told him to protect Skye.


At the “Retreat,” Skye, whom May told to run, ended up defensively using her powers. It was after Calderon tried to shoot her and ended up killing him. After that, Gordon took her away.

After a few days, Hunter finally washed ashore, agreed to work for Coulson, and asked for their new plan.
