Jarvis asks if she honestly thinks her male colleagues will ever give her a chance. At SSR HQ, it's a beehive of activity following the long-range typewriter spitting out a message. A code breaker is having no luck with it, but Peggy decodes it quickly and finds map coordinates and a message setting a time to exchange a purchase. It references Leviathan and a havoc reactor. The message ends with saying the payment is for Howard Stark. Peggy has to argue with Chief Dooley to get to go on the mission to Russia, where she spent three years during the war.

  • At SSR, Ivchenko tells Agent Dooley about Leviathan. Peggy peppers him with questions about the young girls trained to kill until Dooley hauls her out of the room. She thinks one of those girls grew up and killed Agent Krezminski. The gun that was used was Russian, and small, best suited to a woman's grip. A woman is also the most plausible explanation for how Howard Stark was manipulated. Dooley shocks Carter by telling her to investigate her hunch. Peggy and Jarvis investigate the women that Stark has been involved with over the last six months, believing that a female Leviathan operative may have been used against Stark and to kill Krzeminski, but their search is unsuccessful. Sousa reveals to Dooley that Carter is an apparent traitor, and all agents are tasked with tracking her down. They eventually corner her and Jarvis, but Carter fights them off.

They manage to rouse him, but Jarvis reveals the vest is temperamental and will explode with no way to deactivate it. Left with little choice, Dooley steals Thompson's sidearm, shoots out a window, and jumps moments before the device detonates, killing him but leaving the S.S.R. offices mostly intact.

He confides in her that it frustrates him that he has no idea what the carvings mean, but Skye thinks it is a map. Back at HYDRA's offices, as the HYDRA agents are preparing to move house, Skye's father barges into Dr. Whitehall's office, effortlessly killing the HYDRA agents he sends to stop him. He then gives the Obelisk, the "Diviner" in its mother language, and offers to teach Whitehall how to unlock its secrets. Together, the two of them will take on their common foe, Phil Coulson. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "A Hen in the Wolf House")
  • A team of HYDRA operatives disguised as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents attacks the United Nations while Brigadier General Glenn Talbot is delivering a speech about the danger S.H.I.E.L.D. poses to the world. In the wake of the attack, the rest of the world starts to turn against S.H.I.E.L.D., and Senator Christian Ward, the older brother of Grant Ward, takes over the mission to take them down. At the Playground, Coulson checks in on his agents in the Netherlands and prepares to deal with this new situation. Simmons recognizes the particular kind of splinter bomb the HYDRA agents used in the attack as something created by Okinawa-based Toshiro Mori, so Coulson sends Hunter and agents May and Morse to Japan. Hunter is at first reluctant to go on a mission with his ex-wife, but eventually relents. Morse and Hunter try to be nice towards each other on the way to Okinawa, each trying to break the tension between them by complimenting their looks. Once they get there, the plan is for Agent Morse, who knows Mori from her days working undercover at HYDRA, to deceive him into giving up HYDRA's plans while May and Hunter wait on the plane. She does this by flirting with him, and Mori reveals HYDRA's next target is Julien Beckers, a Belgian foreign minister who spoke against Senator Ward's crusade against S.H.I.E.L.D. While this information is being revealed, Hunter notices a HYDRA agent coming up being Morse and intervenes to stop him. Morse then takes out Mori, and reminds her ex-husband he didn't need to save her. The three of them then take off for Belgium to save Beckers from HYDRA. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "A Fractured House")
  • Coulson goes to Washington to speak directly to Senator Ward in his office. Couslon reminds him that they have a common enemy in HYDRA, and warns him that he will reveal his younger brother was a HYDRA agent to the public if he does not call off the hunt for S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. If he does, however, Coulson promises to hand over Ward into his custody. Senator Ward shows a genuine interest in his brother's treatment. This surprises Coulson, who as heard all of Ward's stories about how his older brother abused him and forced him into abusing his younger brother Thomas. Senator Ward reveals that he never abused Grant and that all of those stories were lies he concocted to shield himself from any responsibility. The story about the well in particular is a lie, as Senator Ward merely found his brothers near a river with Grant wielding a screwdriver standing over Thomas. Meanwhile, Skye starts talking to Ward, trying to get all of the information out of him about her father as he can. He reveals that all the horrible things her father has done has been to protect her. The village he wiped out in the Hunan Province wasn't a village at all it was a squad of HYDRA agents there to retrieve Skye, but her mother died in the process. Now that Ward had revealed all he knew about her father, Skye informs him that she no longer needs him, and that he will soon be transferred into his brother's custody. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "A Fractured House")
  • Meanwhile, Fitz, Simmons and Mack are trying to figure out why Hydra would target Beckers. They discover the splinter bombs the HYDRA agent used were first conceived by Vincent Beckers, a HYDRA scientist who worked with the Red Skull in the 1940's and Julien Beckers' grandfather. Realizing that Hunter, May and Morse are heading into a trap, Coulson tries to send word to the S.H.I.E.L.D. safe house in Bruges, but Hydra has already taken out the team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents stationed there. Hunter barges into the safe house not long after carrying a case of beer and starts acting friendly towards the Hydra agents inside. This distraction gives Morse and May enough time to get into place, and the two of them crash through a window and start fighting HYDRA. May goes after Marcus Scarlotti, the leader of the squad of HYDRA agents, while Morse and Hunter take care of the rest. During the fight, Hunter saves Morse's life yet again, only this time she thanks him for it. Meanwhile, Scarlotti fights May using a whip-like weapon with a knife attached to its end. He uses this weapon to almost strangle May, but she gets out of it and is able to defeat him. Talbot and the military arrive soon after to take the surviving HYDRA agents into custody, and reveals that Beckers was arrested trying to cross the border. Talbot asks may how many men she lost. May answers with "six," and Talbot tells her its always a shame to lose a good soldier and holds out his hand for her to shake. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "A Fractured House")
  • Back at the Playground, Senator Ward's men have arrived to take away Grant Ward. Coulson tells them not to give him an inch, or he will use it to escape. While being taken away by his brother's men, his former teammates watch in disgust and silence. Ward attempts to reach out to Skye one final time when he passes her on the way out, but she ignores him and is interrupted by Simmons, who very angrily threatens to kill him if she ever sees him again. Meanwhile, Senator Ward holds a press conference to reveal his brother's affiliation with HYDRA and that he will continue the hunt for HYDRA, an organization he says is a threat to the world. Ward meanwhile is able to slide the cuffs off his wrists, and kills the envoy transporting him to his brother. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "A Fractured House")
  • Elsewhere, a man walks into a tattoo parlor to finish a series of tattoos he's been getting. The man takes off his shirt, revealing he has tattooed the alien glyphs all over his body. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "A Fractured House")
  • A woman takes a man (the same man who covered his body in tattoos of the carvings Coulson had been making) back to her apartment. They make small talk over whether they already know each other. The man then takes off his shirt, revealing his tattoos, and kills the woman. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "The Writing on the Wall")
  • At the Playground, Coulson is busy making his carvings when Skye interrupts him. May, Morse, Hunter, and Triplett are on mission tracking down Grant Ward since he escaped his brother's custody. Skye lets Coulson know that one of her contacts shared with her a murder where the victim, the woman from before had Coulson's carvings carved into her corpse. Coulson recognizes the woman as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, but Skye finds that her record says she died five years ago. Coulson and Skye go to New York to investigate the scene, and find that she had made numerous paintings of the carvings before she died. They take the body back to the playground with her, where Simmons discovers she had the GH.325 serum in her blood, meaning she was a test subject in the T.A.H.I.T.I. project. Realizing that the killer must be another T.A.H.I.T.I. test subject, Coulson puts himself in the memory machine to see if he can uncover his identity. The machine takes Coulson back to his days running the T.A.H.I.T.I. project, and forces him to re-witness the deterioration of the test subjects' mental states as they start making the carvings. Coulson solved the problem by having one of the lead scientists on the project implant the test subjects with false memories and give them a new life. As Coulson is reliving these memories, he starts convulsing and shouting how he needs to know about the carvings, forcing the others to take him out of the machine. They've narrowed the identity of the killer down to two former S.H.I.E.L.D. agents - Hank Thompson and Sebastian Derik. Skye privately tells the Director that he needs to stay behind, as his condition is worsening, but Coulson throws her into Ward's cell and leaves on his own. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "The Writing on the Wall")
  • After tracking Ward across the country, Hunter follows him to Boston, where he meets up with Bakshi at a bar. Inside, Ward offers to get Bakshi close enough to Coulson to "put a bullet in him point blank." Hunter lets the other agents on the hunt for him know about the meeting. They regroup in Boston, but once they go into the bar they find Ward killed the bartender and tied up Bakshi. The agents take him into their custody and bring him back to the Playground. Meanwhile, Coulson arrives at the house of Hank Thompson, and demands at gunpoint he reveal anything he knows about the carvings. Thompson tells him he couldn't help either of them as the killer, Sebastian Derik, sneaks up behind him and knocks him out. Derik then ties up Thompson, his family, and Coulson in the Thompson's barn, where Thompson and his son have built an elaborate model train set. Derik tells Coulson that he could bring back his memories by experiencing pain, which is why he was killing the former T.A.H.I.T.I. test subjects. Couslon meanwhile realizes Thompson's train set was actually the runes, revealing they are meant to be viewed in three dimensions. As Derik is threatening Coulson with a knife, Thompson manages to cut out of his ties and free his family. Derik realizes his prisoner was escaping and throws his knife at him, but Thompson manages to catch the blade in mid-air and throw it back at him. Derik dives out of the way, but the knife cuts Coulson out of his ties. Derik attacks Coulson while he tries to get his assailant to realize what he has discovered about the carvings. Coulson eventually gets Derik over a railing looking down on the train set, but Derik refuses to open his eyes. Simmons and Skye, who was freed after Simmons realized what Coulson had done arrive on the scene and pull their guns on Coulson and Derik, threatening to shoot both of them as Coulson may have gone crazy like Garrett had. Just as they are about to open fire, Derik opens his eyes and realizes what Coulson had been trying to show him - the carvings aren't as much a map as they are the blueprints to a city. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "The Writing on the Wall")
  • After turning Derik over to the authorities, Coulson and the team return to the Playground. Bakshi had since been placed in Ward's cell, and Coulson orders Skye to dig through his smart phone to uncover any information about HYDRA and their plans. Coulson then debriefs his team on what he found out about the carvings. He no longer has the cravings to make them, and plans to use this information to get ahead of HYDRA in their race to uncover its secrets. Elsewhere, Ward shaves his head and facial hair and calls Bakshi's phone. Skye answers the call while pretending to be a HYDRA agent, but Ward immediately sees through her facade. He says she hopes she likes the "gift" he gave her with Bakshi, and promises that he'll be sending more gifts her way in the near future. Ward then hangs up, and starts making his way towards his brother. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "The Writing on the Wall")
  • Ward also appears to join in an alliance with Whitehall, after having first tortured his brother Christian into confessing past sins, and then apparently murdering him and their parents. Meanwhile, Coulson leads a team to hack a USAF mapping satellite, which they successfully use to find the hidden city. At the same time, Coulson meets "The Doctor", who knows that the Obelisk, which he calls the Diviner, is a key that must be taken to the city by someone it deems to be worthy. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "The Things We Bury")
  • The team splits up, with Coulson and Morse leading a group to begin searching for the hidden city under San Juan, and May, Skye, and Hunter leaving to help Sam and Billy Koenig rescue Raina from a Hydra attempt to kidnap her in Vancouver. Raina tells Skye that they are two of the "worthy ones" who could enter the temple in the city, and that any others who try will die. She also reveals that the temple and the Diviner was built by the Kree. Skye tries to warn the main team, but Whitehall blocks their communications, and Ward boards the Bus to take Raina. He also takes Skye, promising to take her to her father, and in exchange agrees to let the others go. Mack has already entered the city where he touches a pattern on the floor which causes him great pain and compels him to attack the others, until he is subdued and falls down a shaft back into the city. Whitehall is surprised to learn that Ward took Skye, and did not destroy the Bus as ordered, and so gives Agent 33 orders to do so. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ...Ye Who Enter Here)
  • May evades HYDRA’s attempt to shoot down the Bus, while Ward brings Skye to meet her father. He tells her that his name is Cal, that hers is Daisy, and that Whitehall killed her mother. Whitehall then arrives at the Hydra base in San Juan where they are drilling directly into the temple. He immobilizes Cal and menaces Skye, but is interrupted as Coulson's team assaults the base. Coulson kills Whitehall, devastating Cal, who attempts to avenge the loss of his own opportunity at vengeance by trying to kill Coulson himself. Skye shoots Ward and forces Cal to leave, before following Raina and the Diviner into the temple. Agent 33, now with no purpose since Whitehall’s death, assists Ward in escaping. Coulson and Triplett race to the temple to help Skye, with Triplett making it in and Coulson being delayed by Mack, who soon after breaks from the city's control when the temple closes itself, and the Diviner opens, revealing Terrigen Crystals, it subsequently releases a small burst of Terrigen Mist. Skye and Raina are encased in cocoons, while Triplett is killed by the Diviner. Skye erupts out of her cocoon, her new earthquake abilities causing tremors around the city. Elsewhere, another Diviner reveals to a man with no eyes that "there's a new one". (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "What They Become")
  • In the wake of Whitehall’s death Coulson looks to hit back at Hydra, who are looking at the imprisoned Bakshi as a potential replacement for the leadership role. S.H.I.E.L.D. enacts a plan that sees Bakshi escaping and leading them to other high-ranking Hydra agents, who are then killed. In Puerto Rico, the alien city is flooded, but not before Raina escapes, having transformed into a monstrous creature. When Cal turns his back on her, reminding her that she got what she wanted, Raina attempts to commit suicide, but she is taken by the man with no eyes, Gordon, who can teleport. Fitz and Skye realize that she has also been transformed she created the earthquake in San Juan, but has no control over this ability. Fitz agrees to keep her secret, and hides the truth from the rest of the team. Meanwhile, a model car that Mack built for Coulson scans the latter’s office and finds the “toolbox” that previous S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury gave to Coulson. Mack secretly reports this to Morse. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "Aftershocks")
  • Lady Sif comes down from Asgard, her memory wiped by a mysterious enemy. Coulson and his team arrive to help her and find that she does not remember their previous friendship. They eventually discover that Sif was last seen battling an incredibly strong man in Portugal. The team manages to capture him and after watching him restore Sif's memories with his truncheon they learn that he is a Kree named Vin-Tak who has come to destroy those affected by the Diviner. In the ensuing argument, Skye's powers are revealed to the team. Sif and Vin-Tak both attempt to capture her but Vin-Tak has his memories wiped by Bobbi and Sif is convinced to stand down by Coulson, though she later warns him that Skye may be a greater danger than they realize. In the aftermath, Sif takes Vin-Tak back to the Kree homeworld and Skye moves into the Bus's padded cell to avoid hurting the others. Meanwhile, Bobbi tries to break things off with Hunter after Mack warns her that he is getting too close. Hunter angrily confronts Mack about this and his suspicions that Mack and Bobbi are hiding something, but Mack knocks him out. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "Who You Really Are")
  • Cal recruits dangerous individuals from S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Gifted Index to settle his vendetta with Coulson. Coulson and Morse investigate, and are lead to the former’s hometown of Manitowoc, where the criminals have seized the local school stadium. May enlists Dr. Andrew Garner, her ex-husband and a psychoanalyst to work with Skye, who is now on the Index herself. During one of Garner's talks with Skye, Coulson requests back-up, prompting May to fly the Bus to Manitowoc, with Garner and Skye on board. At the stadium, Coulson is confronted by Cal, while May arrives bluffing to kill Skye. In the stand-off, Gordon appears and teleports away with Cal. As Coulson's team subdue Cal's group, Skye starts causing tremors, only stopping this by directing her abilities inward, causing hairline fractures throughout her body. Elsewhere, Mack hides Hunter in a safe house until they are extracted by an organization that Mack calls "the real S.H.I.E.L.D."; and Gordon takes Cal to his superiors. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "One of Us")
  • On Dr. Andrew Garner's recommendation, Coulson pulls Skye from active duty, and leaves her at a safe house with gloves designed to help repress her abilities, asking her to take some time to learn to control her powers. Ward and Agent 33 hunt down the man who created the technology that allowed Agent 33 to take on May's appearance. He fixes her mask so she can revert to her original appearance, albeit still scarred, and change her appearance to anyone she wishes. Using this, they infiltrate Talbot's base and break out Bakshi, who S.H.I.E.L.D. had handed over as a sign of good faith. From Bakshi they learn about Agent 33's life before he brainwashed her, including her name, Kara, before brainwashing him themselves. Mack introduces Hunter to Robert Gonzales and the leadership of the "real S.H.I.E.L.D.", founded on the ideal of transparency, rather than Fury's mantra of compartmentalization. They see Coulson and his erratic behavior as a threat, and as Hunter escapes, Morse decides to attack Coulson's group immediately. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "Love in the Time of HYDRA")

  • When Rogers talks to Stark about Coulson and why he did what he did, Rogers mentions "sometimes there's no way out."
