The midseason premiere of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 2 didn’t waste any time. Picking up shortly after Skye’s (Chloe Bennet) transformation and Triplett’s (BJ Britt) death, the team had a lot on their plate. Coulson (Clark Gregg) wanted to attack Hydra, Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) worried about an epidemic and Raina discovered that her powers weren’t so “divine” after all.
The episode started with a flashback to 1983. Skye’s mom, Jiaying (Dichen Lachman), was watching a teenage human named Gordon (Philip Labes) who passed through the Terrigen Mist. His eyes were completely gone, and she comforted him. “I’ll show you the way,” she said.
