Agent Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) calls upon Secret Warriors, Joey (Juan Pablo Raba) and Yo-Yo (Natalia Cordova-Buckley), to join her and Lincoln (Luke Mitchell) for an inaugural mission, as they prepare to attack the Hydra base where the S.H.I.E.L.D. team has been taken. On the captured Zephyr, Mack (Henry Simmons) and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) bring May (Ming-Na Wen) to a locked room where Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) are secured.
Meanwhile, the Secret Warriors split up. Daisy finds the Zephyr, Lincoln finds Malick (Powers Boothe), and Yo-Yo and Joey take out a Hydra battalion easily with their combined powers. Lucio and Giyera (Marc Dacascos) join the fight against the Secret Warriors, resulting in Lucio's death at the hands of a shocked Joey.
Watch Joey kill Lucio:
Inside their secured room, Coulson and the embattled S.H.I.E.L.D. team get ready to fight whatever comes through the door, until they see it's the Secret Warriors! They fly off on the Zephyr to freedom (with Malick in their custody) while Hive informs Giyera that they now they have someone on the inside.
Back at S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ, Team Secret Warriors celebrates their victory while Coulson interrogates Malick, who explains to him what Hive is and that one of, if not all, of the Secret Warriors have been exposed to Hive's mind-control. Coulson then orders Mack to quietly lock down the base. Coulson and Malick also end up sharing memories of their dead loved ones, which brings them to an unlikely partnership: revenge on Hive.
After examining Lucio's brain, Fitz-Simmons confirm that the Inhumans' brains can be co-opted by Hive. The team tries to figure out who is the infected Secret Warrior, and decides that they have to I.C.E. them all in order to lock them up. On his way to get the ICErs, Mack notices a grenade is missing, which explodes in the interrogation room where Malick is being held. After investigating, Coulson and Fitz-Simmons determine Malick was dead before the explosion. The grenade was just used as a cover up.
Watch the massive explosion:
Coulson tells the team there’s evidence that Lincoln was probably turned by Hive long ago. When Lincoln tries to explain to Daisy that he's not under Hive's sway, she says she believes him and wants to escape with him. Lincoln is confused by this, until he realizes Daisy is the one who was swayed. She explains to Lincoln that she’s happier than she has ever been, and Hive filled an emptiness that she's been trying to fill all her life.
After Lincoln refuses to escape with her, Daisy takes the Kree artifact and the Terrigen crystals, then uses her quake powers to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D.'s headquarters.
Watch Daisy walk out on S.H.I.E.L.D. and destroy its headquarters:
