Welcome to HYDRA!
In ET’s exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday’s all-new Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Daisy (Chloe Bennet) attempts to navigate life inside Dr. Radcliffe’s Framework and search out allies, despite the fact that everything is upside down in the digital reality.
After finding out that, in the Framework universe, she’s still dating Ward and they are both working for the villainous HYDRA, Daisy -- who also seems to no longer possess her Inhuman powers -- tries her best to play it cool as the two head to the office, an ominously sterile set of cubicles with anti-Inhuman posters hung on the walls as both warning and decoration.
A fingerprint scan grants her access to HYDRA’s network, and the first person Daisy searches for is not a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, but instead her old boyfriend, Lincoln Campbell (Luke Mitchell). Heartbreakingly, Lincoln is dead in this reality too, an ominous message indicates that he “died during testing.”
“What did they do?” Daisy whispers to herself, before next searching for Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), with whom she entered the Framework. Unfortunately, her search indicates that the S.H.I.E.L.D. biochemist is also dead, apparently from “contamination.”
“Jemma, a faculty member at the esteemed S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy for Science and Technology, died during a laboratory accident that claimed the lives of 200 other devoted S.H.I.E.L.D. researchers,” reads an obituary that pops up in Daisy’s search. “We would like to believe she died as she lived, in the service of others.”
Daisy’s search then gets interrupted by May (Ming-Na Wen), and while she’s initially relieved to see her colleague, it quickly becomes clear that Framework version of the tough-as-nails S.H.I.E.L.D. agent isn’t the same one Daisy knew on the outside.
“Do I have to get you drug tested?” May snaps as Daisy frantically tries to explain herself. “Get in the briefing.”
Yikes. Looks like the agent is all on her own!
