In "Making Friends and Influencing People," we saw how Daniel Whitehall converted good people into conforming to the Hydra way. This was the case with Agent 33, formerly of S.H.I.E.L.D. She comes into face-to-face, so to speak, with some of her former colleagues as she gets close to Coulson by posing as the person he trusts most. For more intel, access the Field Report for "Face My Enemy" below.
Portrait of a Mystery: In Miami, at Santa Maria de Las Flores church, a painting from the early-1500s survives a tragic fire. There are etchings on the back that look a lot like the ones Coulson has been drawing in secret. To keep their cover to swipe the painting at a fundraiser, Coulson asks May to join him on the dance floor. They reminisce about old missions in between dips. Then the small talk takes a serious turn.

Yes, You May: General Talbot catches up with Coulson and May as they try to escape. He wants to know what the writing on the back of the painting means. Coulson asks for an hour before he surrenders quietly. He needs time to find out why Talbot is trying to play him. May is on the case. She tracks down Talbot, only it’s not really him. She rips off a mask to reveal Bakshi in disguise. More surprises are in store for May.
No, You May Not: Agent 33, looking a lot like may, grabs Coulson’s hand assuring him that she won’t let him down. This act of affection, along with a few other uncharacteristic responses, effectively blows her cover. Coulson punches Agent 33 in the face/mask. They tussle in the hallway outside the room where Bakshi is torturing the real May, who breaks free. Now it’s her turn to inflict a little pain.

Heart of the Matter: Not even agents who spend their days fighting powerful, otherworldly forces are immune to the sting of lost love. Everyone on the team has a tale. Hunter’s story bears repeating.

He tells the imaginary representation of Simmons that he feels he has no value.
Team Player: Circuits aboard the bus begin to fry. Everything shuts down. The team is sealed in. Fitz sees the sabotage device. He knows that the bus is going to explode.

Change of Plans: Coulson tells the real General Talbot that the painting everyone was after was destroyed in the fight. It’s a lie. The analysis of the painting comes back. The writing on it is new. There’s someone else out there carving. May lets Coulson know if things go south, she’s getting him out. No matter what happens, she’ll take care of him. That’s her plan. Coulson appreciates how much she cares. Then he orders her to abandon that plan.
