This week on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the light-hearted time-travel hijinks of the initial five episodes made way for harder-hitting drama that left one representative shell-shocked and also an additional in … much even worse form.
After Deke ridiculed the all-seeing Chronicoms by firing dead Wilfred Malick, Luke (which I understand is the lead Chronicom’s “name”!) lays the blame on Sibyl aka The Predictor. Au contraire, she argues. They now have S.H.I.E.L.D.’s place, they broke up their group, as well as they understand that representatives will certainly make a beeline to rescue Mack’s moms and dads. Soothed, Luke sets out to wake the Hunters presently existing dormant somewhere in rows and rows of stasis chambers.
Inside the Lighthouse, Coulson as well as May/Not Chastity have been cuffed, with General Rick Stoner still discounting their cautions about alien robots. But Stoner has larger fish to fry, viewing as he has been talented with the tech to track as well as shoot down the ship that obtained Project Insight. At the same time, aboard claimed Zephyr, Mack is disturbed concerning Deke opposing orders by murder Malick, and also the reality that Daisy and also Sousa are MIA. Worse, his mom and dad are being held prisoner in the Lighthouse, yet Mack is resolved to conserve them by “bringing the discomfort” to the Chronicoms.
Shortly after Mack and Yo-Yo head out, the Lighthouse obtains a lock on the Zephyr and also allows fly with a buncha missiles. Enoch, as pilot, is able to thwart just about among them using countermeasures, yet the one that does hit the Zephyr brings upon damage as though can tear the ship apart following time it is tugged into a time dive. As they get to analyzing things, Jemma go nuts a little bit that she can not remember just how to deal with the system. Enoch comforts her that whatever will be ALRIGHT, if they “act currently”… In a barn somewhere, Daisy pertains to next to fellow abductee Sousa. They’re both dazed from being drugged, to the point that Daisy can not even quake off their irons. Nathaniel Malick appears on hint, promptly eliminating the anticipation that he is doing the bidding process of HYDRA/those that praise an ancient area octopus. No, he has not abducted the agents as a means to get what he desires, because they are what he desires. Namely, he intends to transfuse Daisy’s powers into him, using Daniel Whitehall concepts.
Back at the Lighthouse, cuffed Coulson takes a moment to share his frustration in/frustration with May, that of course, can not feel, but won’t also inform him what she assumes about points. “You never die. You constantly return,” she observes. As well as having mourned Coulson before, she will not let herself do that once again. As Stoner obtains diverted by 2 representatives to recover control of the data processor, Coulson as well as May hypothesize that the Chronicoms have actually discovered a method to “submit” human individualities to synthetic bodies– and actually, that is what has been done to both of the representatives now with Stoner.
Elsewhere, Mack and Yo-Yo laser an opening into the area holding John as well as Lilla. Mackenzie. After being quit from hugging Lilla and also introducing Yo-Yo as his girlfriend, “Macklemore” ensures the pair that he will get them out securely. Inevitably warded off by a thick steel door, Mack as well as his dad work together on a way to jimmy the hydraulics as well as require it open.
Might as well as Coulson get free, obtain the drop on the “uploaded” representatives and also save Stoner, who currently thinks their wild story. Coulson places as well as descends a ladder resulting in a sublevel that should not exist; at the end of it he locates the Hunters’ tension chambers as well as the tool Luke utilizes to basically consult with Sibyl. Coulson secures his very own gloves right into the product and also comes one-on-one with The Predictor, asking, “Bad time?”
Back at the barn, Daisy is returned after Nathaniel essences blood, glands as well as spinal fluid for his objectives, and she is looking very much worse for the wear and barely alive. Sousa lays her directly his leg, doing his ideal to keep her alert by relating the tale of just how he obtained injured throughout the war– yet was carried back to safety and security by an or else dickish Mike Stevens, that ended up passing away on the cutting edge.”This is me handing down the favor, “Sousa states, comforting Daisy.
“We’re going home, Agent Johnson.”Sousa then understands that Daisy at some factor throughout her ordeal hid a fragment of metal in her palm, which he moments later uses to surprise and stab among Nathaniel’s henchmen. Malick turns up just then, uncontrollably trembling up a tornado after his makeshift surgical treatment, however a cave-in KOs him, permitting Sousa to bring Daisy to security. Aboard the Zephyr, Deke finds Enoch doing something ominous-looking to Jemma, and so he slips up on as well as shorts out the Chronicom with a debfrilator. “Deke, what have you done?! “frets Jemma, that discusses that Enoch was fixing her memory to make sure that she can deal with the ship. She shares that she and also Fitz discovered a safe place where Fitz can keep an eye on the Chronicoms’steps, and also she recognizes where that is– yet she created a bio implant(referred to as” Diana “) that suppresses that memory, to keep her safe. And also it seems like the longer they need to maintain in the dental implant, she might fail to remember Fitz’s place entirely.
Sibyl explains to her unanticipated site visitor that she checks out time streams, not to a lot forecast the future yet see the past as created by a solitary future (or something). On the topic of “Why invade Earth?,” she explains that humans have actually limited time and also thus act irrationally while alive. Chronicoms, at the same time, will certainly exist long after people are gone. Ergo, humanity will either swing a white flag, or the clock will simply abandon them. Coulson counters her POV with a collection of factors– consisting of that humans make real sacrifices that cost actual blood, sweat and also rips, and “we will never give up.” Yet extra seriously, he quips, “Dying, it’s kind of my superpower,” before unplugging from the VR gadget and also utilizing his duffel packed with nitroglycerins to blow up the Hunters about to wake in the Chronicoms’ hidden time ship … and also himself … after radioing to May, “I wish you’re appropriate concerning this following component!”
After buying Stoner(as his Level 7 remarkable, ha )to remove the base and also create a cover story for the surge, May signs up with Mack, Yo-Yo and the Mackenzies on the Quinjet, as well as exposes that Coulson is” gone”– yet, she provides,” He’ll return. Constantly does.”Minutes later on, after a shoulder touch, May understands that Mack’s daddy is a Chronicom. Mack declines to believe it, yet asks John to show the cut on his arm he sustained while servicing the steel door. John balks at first, however rolls up his sleeve … to disclose exposed Chronicom tech. And Lilla is one, also! A fight ensues, throughout which “John” taunts Mack with the truth that his real parents have been “gone a while.” Mack at some point activates open the bay door, out of which “John” and after that “Lilla”– who asks her “Alfie” to save her– tumble. On the Zephyr, Enoch repairs Jemma, that 1) pleads Deke to keep her key as well as 2) welcomes him to both say sorry to Enoch and also hail him as a “valued participant of our household.”
As the unbelievably active episode wanes, we see Daisy recovering in the recovery chamber, while Sousa is asked if he intends to stay in 1976. He keeps, “I’m where I need to be.” The ship is fixed right before the following time-jump kicks in– after which, Mack hops on a bike and also rates off to get some air. Deke later on mosts likely to examine sullen Mack, when Jemma radios him to get back to the Zephyr ASAP, due to the fact that it’s regarding to leap. Prior to Deke can also get Mack’s interest, the Zephyr jumps in time once more … without them!
What did you think of the episode “Adapt or Die,” as we near the final period’s middle?
