Field Report: Afterlife

Field Report: Afterlife

Hunter and Coulson swipe a nice SUV to use for their hunt for Skye. They locate the site where she was taken by Gordon, the missing eyes guy. As for Skye, she’s left in the hands of her transitioner, Lincoln. The guy is helping her body adjust after her experience with the Terrigen Mist. Lincoln lets her know that they are in a safe place known as Afterlife. Access the full Field Report for the "Afterlife" episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. below. WARNING: There are SPOILERS here if you haven't seen the episode.

In Control: The people in Afterlife are descendants waiting to be chosen for the change. Skye jumped ahead of them in the most old school kind of way—with a Diviner in a Kree Temple. She’s surprised to learn that her transition is irreversible. Lincoln shows Skye his gift which involves electrical charges. He learned how to control it at Afterlife.

Losing Control: Skye asks Gordon to get a message to her friends. That can’t happen until they get permission from the elders. Gordon heads off to pay a visit to Skye’s father, Kal, who isn’t happy about being locked up in a windowless room. The two of them get into physical altercation over Skye. Gordon lets him know that his lack of discipline has sealed his fate, as well as the fate of his daughter.

Sudden Deathlock: Coulson makes use of a 21st century Howling Commandos kit that Fitz and Trip built for him. It includes a holographic projection machine. Coulson and Hunter put it to good use. They trick the invading S.H.I.E.L.D. agents into letting their guard down long enough to be iced. They attempt to steal the QuinJet, but are quickly surrounded. That’s fine. The reinforcements have arrived. Actually, it’s just one reinforcement.

Stay, Just a Little Bit Longer: When Raina reveals her thorny transitioned self, Skye begins to lose control of her powers. Everything shakes. Raina wants Skye to finish her. That’s not going to happen. A woman name Jaiying, who we got to know in “Aftershocks,” enters the room. She explains that they are all the same at this place. Jaiying tells Skye she will be her guide if she decides to stay.

Tools of the Trade: Gonzales wants to give May a position on the board. If she joins them, at least Coulson will have an ally in his corner when they bring him in. Elsewhere, Simmons lets Bobbi and Mack know that she can’t open the toolbox. Without Coulson, it’s just a worthless piece of junk. The irony of her words is lost on those around her. That’s because they have no idea that Fitz and Simmons were secretly working together.
