Agents of SHIELD: Season 2, Episode 21: S.O.S.‘s plot synopsis (spoilers): “S.H.I.E.L.D. quickly realizes Jiaying’s ruse, but the people of Afterlife, including Skye, fall for it, and agree to fight alongside her. Ward tortures Morse, wanting her to confess to the fact that she had revealed Palamas’ location to Hydra while undercover there. Realizing that Morse is confident in her actions, Ward sets a trap that will end with a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, presumably Hunter, being killed in front of her. However, Morse takes the bullet for Hunter, barely surviving, while Ward accidentally kills Palamas while she is disguised as May. As part of Jiaying’s plan, Cal takes a serum that he created to give himself Inhuman strength. However, it is also killing him, and Coulson helps him see the truth: Jiaying is the true monster, and ever since he had pieced her back together she had been convincing him to do terrible things, including bringing her humans, whose life she absorbs in order to heal and remain young. After failing to convince Skye that Jiaying is dangerous, Raina confronts Jiaying, who kills her. Seeing this, Skye turns her back on Jiaying. The Inhumans take her prisoner, and attack the S.H.I.E.L.D. ship, planning to use artificial Terrigen crystals (laced with Diviner metal) to reveal all Inhumans, and kill all humans. Mack frees Skye, who warns Coulson of Jiaying’s plan; Coulson, Fitz, and Cal infiltrate the ship. Fitz kills Gordon, preventing him from unleashing Terrigen mist through the ship’s ventilation. However, Coulson loses an arm when he stops one of the crystals from shattering. Skye confronts Jiaying, who is attempting to spread more crystals around the world with a Quinjet. When Skye pushes the plane into the ocean, Jiaying begins draining her life, until Cal kills Jiaying. S.H.I.E.L.D. later wipes Cal’s memories, allowing him to live a new life in peace, while Skye joins a new S.H.I.E.L.D. team of gifted people, May takes a break from S.H.I.E.L.D. with Garner, and Ward plans to lead the remains of Hydra against S.H.I.E.L.D. As traces of the crystals from the ocean make their way around the world, the Kree weapon absorbs Simmons.”
