Synopsis: After finding themselves in yet another gambling dilemma, a mysterious stranger offers Enoch and FitzSimmons a ride home. (IMDb)
In Toldja, Fitz, Simmons, and Enoch hit a road block on their way back to Earth while the SHIELD gang back on Earth are fully on board with the incoming threat of the shrike.
The episode started with Fitz, Simmons, and Enoch who escaped the Chronicom ship at the end of the last episode and would end up in their transporter’s last location which was Kitson. Once their transporter was taken, they were left stranded once again. Things got worse since their past actions on Kitson caught up with them. Meanwhile, May was returning to SHIELD with Sarge and Snowflake. Sarge let it be known that letting him go was the only way for them to survive, however, Mack had other plans.
Sarge was feeling very cooperative. He didn’t believe that SHIELD was prepared and was confident that he would be let out and be put in charge by the end of the day (Mack’s later attempt at mind games didn’t quite work either). Daisy and Deke reunited for the first time this season. The only real thing that came from that was that Deke learned that Fitz had died (I guess it wasn’t important enough to tell him at the time). Deke was not exactly thrilled about it because of the paradox that may create.
Fitz, Simmons, and Enoch were taken to see Mr. Kitson (Anthony Michael Hall), the leader of the planet. His intention was to kill them but just like everything else on Kitson, it would be part of a game that patrons would get to bet money on. However, his plan did not exactly go according to plan when a mysterious woman named Izel (Karolina Wydra) forcefully offered to buy the three of them. She was on Kitson to recruit people for her cew to help her recover a valuable stolen artifact that she had tracked to Earth. Izel’s only problem was she didn’t have a ship.
Daisy’s return couldn’t have come at a better time as Mack was faced with self-doubt about being the director. Using Sarge’s now unencrypted tracker, they found two shrike. Once they were apprehended, strange things were happening once they were placed together in the same containment cell on the zephyr (just as Sarge predicted). Meanwhile, Sarge was not worried about his current predicament since he had a backup plan but unfortunately it would backfire when they stopped Jacko (who pretended to be sick) to burn down (how he got that ability was unclear) his cell door (presumably to save the others).
Sarge would successfully used the incident on the zephyr as leverage to get his crew and truck back (the shrike were susceptible to cold). In the end, he was correct about being freed and in charge by the end of the day.
The last scene was of Fitz, Simmons, and the others securing a ship (from the two guys that were giving everyone a hard time earlier). Meanwhile, they and Enoch would go their separate ways as his mission was now over, leaving him to focus on helping his people.
For the most part, these early episodes have been entertaining but hopefully with this, we can be done with space and the team can finally be all together and the season could really begin.
