Trip Makes the Ultimate Sacrifice|Trip sacrifices himself to save Skye's life.|Trip sacrifices himself to save Skye's life. From Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2 episode 10, "What They Become."
Coulson lets Gonzalez know that Hydra leaders Strucker and List have been running experiments on enhanced people. They’ve set up a base in the Arctic. This is just one reason why Coulson believes it’s time to initiate the Theta Protocol. It’s time to bring in the Avengers. Before that, Coulson wants to send in a small infiltration unit to rescue Mike Peterson. For more intel, access the below Field Report for the “The Dirty Half Dozen” episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Apology Not Accepted: Ward claims that Bakshi is still working for him. The plan is to rescue the enhanced prisoners, disable Hydra’s defenses and ultimately bomb the facility. Ward is about to bring everyone up to speed on Bakshi’s intel when he pauses to address the “elephant on the plane.”
Part of the Plan: Doctor List reveals that nobody has made it past a certain level of their testing with the exception of the twins that Strucker has elsewhere. He gives the order to shoot the approaching S.H.I.E.L.D. team out of the sky. That’s exactly what happens. Gonzalez tells everyone back at the base to sit tight. This was always part of the plan.
Holding a Grudge: Simmons believes Ward is a threat to everyone. It’s best to remain armed with protective measures and, if need be, take the guy out altogether. She convinces Coulson to let her join in the rescue, which involves an explosive infiltration. Simmons makes her way into the area where Ward is. Incredibly, she attempts to kill him.
Loki, Loki Here: Gonzalez watches as Skye keeps vigil over Lincoln after having saved him. He’s glad to have enhanced people on the base. Coulson gives Gonzalez the toolbox. That was their deal. The toolbox is fair game until Fury shows up to reclaim it. Coulson can’t stick around to soak in the shocked look on Gonzalez’s face. He has an incoming call from Maria Hill.
Theta Protocol: What does it mean? It's a way to let us know that some old friends are being called upon to assemble.
