Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 1, Episode 16: End of the Beginning‘s plot synopsis (spoilers): “Garrett and Triplett are attacked by Mike Peterson, who has been reborn as Deathlok, at a S.H.I.E.L.D. safehouse. Several weeks later, they along with Agents Hand, Sitwell and Blake join the team in their hunt for the Clairvoyant. The agents split into teams to pursue leads on different Clairvoyant candidates. At a nursing home searching for Thomas Nash, a catatonic man who once claimed to be a psychic, May and Blake encounter Deathlok; he claims that “Mike Peterson is dead” before critically injuring Blake. However, Blake manages to tag him with a tracker before he flees. Concluding that Nash is the Clairvoyant because of Deathlok’s presence along with the falsifying of his nursing home records, the team converges on Deathlok’s next location, an abandoned horse racing track, while Triplett and Simmons stay behind at the Hub with Hand. The team briefly encounters Deathlok again, but he flees into the sewers. However, they discover a hidden room where Thomas Nash (Brad Dourif), a vegetative man on life support who must speak through a computer, is hiding. Nash surrenders and boasts that as the Clairvoyant, he will always be watching them, but when he says that Centipede will kill Skye, Ward shoots him dead. Meanwhile, Fitz attempts to create a secret phone line so he can speak to Simmons from the Bus, but he discovers a bug that leads him to May’s secure line. Coulson realizes that Thomas Nash was not the Clairvoyant, and when Skye presents the results of her studies on the S.H.I.E.L.D. psychological files of the potential Clairvoyants, they realize that the Clairvoyant is a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. with access to the same files, giving the Clairvoyant knowledge of how to manipulate the agents. Coulson accuses the detained Ward of working with the Clairvoyant and shooting Nash to misdirect away from the Clairvoyant’s true identity, but they are interrupted by Skye, who learned of May’s unapproved phone line from Fitz. Coulson and Skye end up in a standoff with May in the Bus’s hangar. But as May tries to explain that she cannot identify who the line goes to, control of the Bus is hijacked. At the Hub, Victoria Hand orders her subordinates to kill everyone aboard but Coulson for she will kill him herself by saying, ‘Not Coulson, he’s mine.'”
