SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for “Farewell, Cruel World!”, the latest episode of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
The “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” have made it out of the Framework at last! After discovering the backdoor that Radcliffe created, Daisy, Coulson, May, Fitz and Simmons were able to successfully exit the Framework in “Farewell, Cruel World!”. However, that isn’t the last of their troubles. Aida has built herself a human body, and that human body has superpowers.
Inside the Framework, Simmons discovered that Aida was busy building a machine she found in the Darkhold. Though similar to the one Eli Morrow built to create matter, this so-called “Looking Glass” project was designed for a different purpose. It can create living matter, or whole human bodies. Aida developed the project inside the Framework, but used the Superior’s help to build it in the real world. By the end of the episode, Aida successfully built herself a human body — and it came with perks.
Aida exited the Framework at approximately the same time that Coulson, May and Fitz did. All four characters were extremely disoriented by their experiences, though Fitz was far more alarmed, seeing as he had killed both Agnes and Mace inside and outside the Framework. So, when the human Aida stepped into the room, overjoyed with her newfound emotions, he was unable to pull himself away from her in time for May to take a shot and kill her.
Aida’s disorientation didn’t last long. She quickly realized that May intended to kill her, wrapped her arms around Fitz and teleported out of the room. As such, it seems as though Aida imbued herself with some extra abilities from the Darkhold as well.

It is unclear where Aida took Fitz, though the promo from the next episode seems to suggest that she’s not on the Superior’s submarine. She is seen begging for her life, so she may appeal to the feelings he had for her within the Framework in a bid to save her own life.
