“MARVEL’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 3 Episode 7 “Among Us Hide….” aired on Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 9:00 p.m. on ABC. In this episode, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) and Agent Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse (Adrienne Palicki) raced against time to get to Werner Von Strucker before Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) did, while Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), Agent Lance Hunter (Nick Blood), Agent Alphonse “Mack” Mackenzie (Henry Simmons) and Agent Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) investigated both the Alien Threat Containment Unit (ATCU), and tried to figure out who Lash really is. However, Lash’s identity will be revealed in the end, and based on several reports, the aftermath of this revelation, and more of Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) will be seen in the upcoming episodes. WARNING: This article contains spoilers for the current episode and the upcoming episodes. Read on only to learn more about these episodes.
The episode opened at S.H.I.E.L.D. Headquarters, with medics taking care of Dr. Andrew Garner (Blair Underwood), who claimed that everyone had died in the explosion that had occurred.
Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) then benched Agent Lance Hunter (Nick Blood), and Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) brought along Agent Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse (Adrienne Palicki) with her, as she knew that she was ready.
They then soon realized that Werner Von Strucker (Spencer Treat Clark) had survived the blast and made their way to a Cayman Island bank. It was after discovering that that particular HYDRA account had been activated. They knew that they had to get to Werner before Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) did, as Werner was now a liability.
Unfortunately, Werner had gone to his father’s closest friend, and HYDRA bigwig, Gideon Malick (Powers Boothe). He was the one who handed his location in Lisbon, Portugal, over to Ward on a silver platter.
Meanwhile, May and Bobbi managed to infiltrate the bank and gained access to all of Werner’s passports and ID. It would allow Agent Leo Fitz (Iain de Caestecker) to help them track Werner down faster.
Coulson then went with Rosalind Price (Constance Zimmer) to get a tour of the Alien Threat Containment Unit (ATCU) facility but was delayed after a break-in happened at her home.
However, Coulson immediately recognized that Price was working him, and the two decided to go to the facility.
Meanwhile, working on the hunch that Agent Banks (Andrew Howard) might just be Lash, Agent Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet), Agent Alphonse “Mack” Mackenzie (Henry Simmons) and Hunter staked out his place. Afterwards, Hunter knocked him out and punched his nose in order to get a sample of his blood, which Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) could analyze for Inhuman markers.
However, much to their disappointment, they discovered that Banks was fully human.
The trio then headed to a particular plant, as Banks had gotten a text that he was going to be receiving a delivery there- an Inhuman placed inside a box, in apparently suspended animation.
Daisy then became shocked after discovering that Price had taken Coulson there and that Coulson wasn’t reacting to it as she felt that he should. However, heeding Mack’s advice, the trio pulled out.
Inside the facility, Coulson discovered that Price kept the Inhumans they found in stasis as they were trying to figure out a vaccine to reverse the process. She then told him that she was doing this because she had lost her husband to cancer, and wished that she could have kept him in stasis until a cure had been found for it.
At the SHIELD laboratory, Simmons asked Fitz for an update regarding the possibilities of getting Will (Dillon Casey) back to Earth. Fitz told her that his simulations had failed but didn’t tell her that he was digging into Will’s past.
Meanwhile, May and Bobbi fought of Ward’s goons, who were torturing Von Werner. After rescuing him, he revealed to May that Andrew had turned into Lash during the fight.
Back at SHIELD headquarters, after Daisy got off of an untraceable call with Lincoln Campbell (Luke Mitchell), Andrew asked Daisy once again if she knew where he was, however, she had no clue as to where Lincoln was.
As May now knows what exactly happened to Andrew, which also might be the reason as to why he left her suddenly during their little vacation together, it seems that it won’t be long before the rest of S.H.I.E.L.D. finds out, as hinted at in the official ABC Disney press release for the upcoming episode, entitled “Chaos Theory”.
Meanwhile, the press released also teased that Agent Leo Fitz (Iain de Caestecker) will be able to find some information that would help him and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) in their little side project.
This time around we didn’t get to see much of the new HYDRA director. He elected to delegate the task of eliminating Werner to his right-hand man. However, according to Brett Dalton’s recent interview with Comic Book Resources, one should expect the anti-hero to be showing up more often, with more screen time, in the next couple of episodes.
As of now, the ladies are still out for his blood, while Ward is trying to gear things up to strike directly at his counterpart- Coulson.
