Flashback, 34 hours earlier: Bobbi and Hunter run through the woods in pursuit of Gideon Malick's (Powers Boothe) convoy. Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Team run backend from the Zephyr. They're searching for Malick's proposed Inhuman “paradise”.
Bobbi and Hunter come up to a power plant that Malick has taken over. Coulson agrees to send in back-up but tells them they do not have the go-ahead to take out Malick. They're interrupted by the sight of an Inhuman prisoner being brought into the facility... and the Russian soldiers who spot them. Bobbi and Hunter quickly dispatch the Russian soldiers.
At the power plant, May and Hunter discover the dead body of Yuri Krupin – personal attaché to the Russian Prime Minister. In a security room, Daisy readies to set up surveillance of the building. They spot Malick and Petrov on the monitors, Bobbi will take point on them. She places a few surveillance discs around Malick and the cabinet members meeting, giving Coulson full access.
We learn that it was General Androvich, the Minister of Defense, who killed the Prime Minister’s attaché . The Prime Minister is against the Inhuman sanctuary. Androvich is the Inhuman we saw earlier. Malick says that they should let Androvich go to take care of the Prime Minister himself. It's a coup!
Later, the team learns that Malick is leaving without General Androvich because the Prime Minister himself is on his way to the power plant! Coulson makes the decision to let Malick go in order to focus on protecting the Russian Prime Minister from General Androvich.
Once the Prime Minister realizes it's a coup, May and Hunter bust in with smoke grenades. May and Daisy take out the Prime Minister's security detail. Hunter grabs the Prime Minister. Bobbi and Mack grab the Inhuman General. The General's power is revealed: he can control his shadow! It turns into a three-dimensional shape. Bobbi's batons go right through it. Daisy's powers don't affect it. The shadow knocks Mack out before it and the General disappear. The team learns it’s a Darkforce shadow and functions independently of the General. And, per science, it can't be beaten. Unless they kill the General...
Hunter is getting the Prime Minister out of there. Petrov shows up, is about to kill the Prime Minister, but instead, Hunter puts Petrov down. The Shadow is about to kill Hunter and the Prime Minister. Bobbi puts three bullets in the General's chest. Immediately drops her gun and surrenders. The Shadow dissipates. A Russian soldier knocks Hunter out.
Back to now, Hunter and Bobbi in the same interrogation room. They think this is it. They're going to be killed today. But on the other side of the mirror is the Russian Prime Minister with President Ellis and… Coulson. The PM demands that someone pay for what happened at the power plant. Using spy tricks, Coulson enters the room and kills the surveillance. This is an extraction. Bobbi and Hunter refuse, and instead Coulson agrees to disavow them, protecting S.H.I.E.L.D.
Watch Bobbi & Hunter refuse Coulson's help:
