The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have finally found some answers. I think.  Supposedly Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) aka Quake destroyed the earth. The Kree swooped in and helped the remaining humans survive in the lighthouse. The Kree enslaved the humans, killed the leaders and smart people, and sent anyone who resisted to the surface to die.  The resistance survived, cared for the seer Robin Hinton and used a monolith to bring the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to the future.  And the crazy thing…this is all a circle of chaos that no one can fix.  

The Kree are breeding Inhumans for profit.  The rest of the humanity has submitted to the Kree’s rule, with no hope for a better life.

The agents arrived in the future without Fitz (Iain De Caestecker).  Their guide died as soon as they got there.  Coulson (Clark Gregg) had a hard time keeping everyone together. First, Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) was taken by the Kree leader Kasius (Dominic Rains).  Then Daisy was sold to Kasius. And May (Ming-Na Wen) disappeared looking for them.

Fitz had to put himself in cryosleep to catch up. Things got messy when he rescued Simmons and Daisy from the Kree.  They were all reunited, minus May and had to escape to the surface.  They find May with Robin and the True Believers tried to kill Daisy to stop the loop. Meanwhile Mack (Henry Simmons) and Elena/YoYo (Natalia Cordova-Buckley) stayed behind at the Lighthouse to help the rest of humanity survive the Kree’s wrath.

The Kree have been in power for far too long. The revolution begins in “Best Laid Plans.”  The human survivors, led by Mack, YoYo, and Flint (Coy Stewart), stand up to the Kree on Level 10.  Mack is a little worried about Kasius’ retaliation.  YoYo and Flint are ready to fight again. She even shows Flint how to shoot a gun. Mack stops her saying their action will have consequences. They have to be careful.  

Kasius is aware that the humans are alive. The Kree soldiers report that the humans killed all of the roaches and seven of the guards.  Kasius wants to send them a clear and threatening message.

Meanwhile, on Earth…Coulson and the rest of the team…and Deke (Jeff Ward)…prepare the Zephyr for take off.  Enoch (Jeff Stoffer) says they need to evacuate to the caves to survive the gravity storm.  The team are not listening.  They are confident that they can get the Zephyr in the air.  The plan is to fly to the Lighthouse and help Mack lead the revolution against the Kree.

May finds some of Robin’s drawings and gets really quiet. She tells Coulson that she can’t see herself as a mother.  Coulson can see it, and so can Daisy. She says may will be one of those strict and no nonsense moms.

Deke watches over Voss (Michael McGrady) so he won’t try to kill Daisy again.  Deke knows Voss killed his dad.  He threatens to kill Voss, but they both know he’s not a killer. Voss tries to convince Deke to kill Daisy.  It’s the only way to end the loop.

Kasius’ message arrives on Level 10…and it’s Tess! (Eve Harlow)  Kasius has Kree technology that brings the dead back to life.  Tess describes it as horrifying. She calls Kasius a god.  Mack and YoYo don’t buy it. They know Kasius wants something.  He wants the Inhumans, children under the age of 10, and Daisy.

Coulson and Daisy talk about the plan once they get to the lighthouse. The first thing Coulson wants to do is remove Daisy’s inhibitor.  Daisy says it might be best if she doesn’t remove it. Then she won’t be the Destroyer of Worlds.

FitzSimmons work on getting the Zephyr controls back online.  Fitz says the configuration has changed.  Actually, it’s a design that he’s been working on.  They find a supply of gravitonium and realize that they created it.  They’ve been through this ordeal before.  There’s really nothing they can do to change the loop.  Our favorite couple to back to the bridge to tell Coulson about the upgrades. The gravity storm hits the ship.  May tries to take off, but they blow out the engines.  Enoch says it’s time to evacuate.

Tess, Flint, YoYo and Mack find bombs all over level 10.  Tess tells them that Kasius plans to blow up the level and incinerate the human population.  They take the bomb back to show everyone.  Mack says they have to give Kasius what he wants. They people want to fight back. Mack tells them not to do that. Mack and YoYo volunteer to give themselves up.  

The True Believers are ready to evacuate.  Daisy asks Deke why he didn’t kill Voss.  Deke has every reason to kill him.  They talk about killing someone for the good of others.  That’s what Voss believed he was doing when he tried to kill Daisy.

At the same time Coulson is taking Voss out of his cell for evacuation.  Voss says S.H.I.E.L.D. is to blame for the end of the world.  He heard that aliens came to earth,S.H.I.E.L.D. tried to stop them from attacking the planet and that’s when Daisy destroyed the earth.

They gather what they need to evacuate the Zephyr.  May and Simmons notice that the gravity is off.  Fitz and Simmons tell everyone that they can use the gravity storm to make the Zephyr fly.  Once they are high enough in the air, they can turn on the thrusters and fly to the Lighthouse. While they are talking, Sinara enters the Zephyr.

Tess returns to Kasius. She hands him a vile of blood and a rock.  She tells him that Mack and YoYo are on the research floor.  They are holding it hostage until Kasius agrees to meet them.  Kasius goes to the research lab.  Mack has strapped bombs to a cart of Inhuman blood samples. Kasius taunts Mack and YoYo with threats, telling them that they’ve attempt an uprising before and failed.  They shoot back with insults and demand that he let them all go.  Kasius tells them to submit to him and they will save lives.

The team on Earth prepare to take off again, but the anchors won’t release the ship.  Daisy and Deke go to manually release the anchors.  Sinara is in the cargo bay and surprises Daisy with a punch to the face.  Deke sees all of this, but some of the cargo falls on top of him.

The Zephyr is pulled up by the gravity storm.  There is no gravity in the ship, so Daisy and Sinara are fighting in the air.  May turns the gravity on and the fight continues on the ground.  Deke is trying to get a case that is sliding away from him.  Sinara gets the upper hand on Daisy.  Daisy is having a hard time keeping up with Sinara’s punches.  

The face off between YoYo/Mack and Kasius continues.  They keep him talking about what he’s going to do to them.  Flint walks up behind them to let them know that everything is ready.  YoYo runs at Kasius and hits a force field.  Kasius is familiar with YoYo’s power and was ready for her to try something.

Daisy is able to get away from Sinara briefly and climb up to a ledge.  Sinara follows her and the fight continues.  Sinara pulls a knife and says she’s not supposed to kill Daisy, but oh well.  She pulls her arm back to strike Daisy and Deke grabs her arm with the claw that the True Believers used to save the agents.   

May turns on the thrusters and that pushes Sinara in the air. She lunges at Daisy and Daisy thrusts a spear in her heart, killing her.  Fitz and Simmon’s plan worked. The Zephyr is flying to the Lighthouse.

Kasius says time is up and press the detonator for the bombs on level 10.  The lighthouse shakes, but the humans are safe.  The humans moved the bombs to level 25, away from everyone.  Tess runs to the others. They admit that they were stalling Kasius while the bombs were moved. Mack blows up the cart of Inhuman blood samples.  Now Kasius is cut off from everyone.

Daisy reaches out to Mack and YoYo, but there’s no answer.  FitzSimmons are trying to break the monolith, and Deke doesn’t like it.  Mack finally answers and lets them know that everyone is okay. They ask if he has Flint.  He says yes and asks if they have a plan.  Of course they do.

Kasius emerges from a secret room. A guard approaches to give him news about the Zephyr, but Kasius already knows they are landing.  The guard asks how he knew.  Kasius admits to having a seer of his own.

Thoughts

Just when you think the agents have it all figured out, something gets in the way. So far they’ve been able to overcome every obstacle.  Even Tess returned from the dead.  How long can their luck last?

So there’s this theory on Twitter that Deke is the grandson of FitzSimmons.  I find this very interesting.  The evidence is that Deke was able to fix the Framework and profit from it.  He owns a piece of the monolith.  Deke’s dad finished Fitz’s time travel research and puts the device on the Zephyr.  I think it makes sense, but what if he was Daisy’s grandson? hahahahaha!

OH! We’re coming upon the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s 100th episode!! So you know it’s about to get really good!
