Previously on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (“Making Friends and Influencing People”), the episode opened with Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) waking up to a new day. She has a new assignment, that is, to work as a scientist in a Hydra laboratory. While her immediate superior was talking to her, she peeked through the folder and learned that they were up to “acquiring” Donnie Gill (Dylan Minnette), aka Blizzard. Coulson (Clark Gregg) visited Simmons, and she filled him with information.
Meanwhile, in Morocco, Gill tried to talk his way to the owner (perhaps manager?) to let him stay, and he would work for him. Apparently, the owner was informed about Gill. Two men showed up and tried to talk to him. The first one sat in front of Gill, and before we know it, he was as hard as ice. He went through the agent’s phone and went to the port.
Ward (Brett Dalton) discussed with Skye (Chloe Bennet) that he was not loyal to Hydra but to Garrett. He revealed how Garrett (Bill Paxton) helped him get back to his feet. Ward also revealed how Hydra acquires gifteds. Hydra convinces or captures the gifted. If the gifted refused, Hydra sees it as a threat.
Simmons was summoned for security reasons. They found out that used to be a level 5 S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. She clarified that she was not loyal to Hydra nor S.H.I.E.L.D. but to science. They also learned that Simmons knew Gill from way back.
Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) faced Ward. While making his point, he tried to make Ward experience how it feels to run out of oxygen. He also learned from him that Hydra will try to brainwash Gill to win him.
Both the S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra teams were on the port, racing to get Gill. Simmons got to him first. When she was not able to convince Gill, she was forced to utter the words being dictated to her. May (Ming-Na Wen), on the other hand, took a shot, so as not to blow Simmons cover. Simmons managed to run, and Gill chased after her. When he reached the exit to the ship, he was then brainwashed. He was commanded to freeze the whole ship. However, Skye was able to hit him. Hydra left the ship empty-handed.
The episode ended with Ward telling Skye that her father is still alive. And if she would let him, someday he will take her to him.
