Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recap: Lash's True Identity Revealed
Welcome to the Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. recap for “Among Us Hide...,” Season 3, Episode 6 (original airdate November 3, 2015), where we finally learn Lash's true identity. Now that we've got more backstory on what exactly Agent Jemma Simmons was doing for the 6 months that she was trapped on the planet beyond the portal, this week's episode jumps right back to the explosive finish of "Devils You Know," as Agent Melinda May anxiously awaits the return of Andrew Garner after Hydra's Grant Ward ordered Werner Von Strucker (AKA Alexander) to kill him. Miraculously, Andrew survived the explosion… but how? May vows revenge. She tells Coulson that she’s officially back with S.H.I.E.L.D.
Bobbi Back in Action
Now that May is back and ready to take on Ward, her first order of business is confronting Agent Bobbi Morse. May is furious that Bobbi's ex -- Agent Lance Hunter -- might have gotten May's ex -- Dr. Andrew Garner -- killed when he got aggressive going after Ward. Bobbi still isn't cleared for fieldwork, but May picks a fight with her and the two battle hand-to-hand in the S.H.I.E.L.D. training room:
It turns out May was just testing Bobbi to see if she's ready for the field, and according to May, she's ready.
What Does ATCU Know?
Agent Daisy Johnson tells Andrew that she suspects Lash is an ATCU agent since she watched him transform into a man and Lash is always one step ahead. She and Agent Alphonso "Mack" Mackenzie suspect that Rosalind Price’s number two, Banks, might be Lash. Meanwhile, at long last, Rosalind Price allows Director Phil Coulson to see the ATCU facility:
He doesn't like what he sees; he finds it dehumanizing and reactionary. But upon further investigation, he deduces Rosalind's motivations for "saving" Inhumans and trying to study them. And it also turns out that Rosalind might be trying to get closer to Coulson -- and not just for professional reasons.
Bobbi and May Take On Hydra
Bobbi and May are searching for Werner Von Strucker, to see what he knows about the attack on Andrew, and hopefully to learn more about Ward's rebuilding of Hydra. They know Hydra's after him too, because he knows too much. Bobbi and May storm Von Strucker's penthouse in Germany and find Von Strucker being tortured by Hydra goons and spring into action. May takes down a few guys while rescuing Von Strucker, while newly battle-ready Bobbi chases after Kebo, one of Ward's top lieutenants. She might be rusty -- can she take him down? Watch below:
Lash's True Identity Revealed
May rescues Werner Von Strucker from Hydra, but he's barely alive after the torture Hydra wreaked upon him. Von Strucker says he was assigned to stay on Dr. Garner, but things got complicated:
When Hydra cornered Garner in the market, he... changed. May can hardly believe it when Von Strucker reveals that Garner is Lash.
The episode ends with Garner, back at S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters and still undiscovered, asking Daisy about Lincoln Campbell's whereabouts. Will Lincoln be Lash's next target? Tell us your theories in the comments below! Tune in TUESDAY NOV 10 for Season 3, Episode 7, "Chaos Theory."
