SPOILER WARNING: This article contains spoilers for “Uprising,” the third episode of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 4.
Things aren’t looking good for the Inhumans in “Uprising,” the latest episode of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 4. After launching a series of blackouts worldwide, the Watchdogs tried to pin the blame on an Inhuman revolution, only for Coulson, Fitz, Mack and Yo-Yo to put a stop to them and reveal the truth just before the United States retaliated. What’s even more troubling, however, is the source of their information: the Sokovia Accords — and Senator Rota Nadeer.
As the blackouts spread, Coulson went to Miami — one of the affected cities — with Fitz and Mack. In their search for the EMP that knocked out the power, they encountered Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez, who had been celebrating her friend’s bachelorette party in a local hotel. When they found her, she was in a standoff against a group of Watchdogs. Alarmingly, the Watchdogs knew Yo-Yo would be there and specifically targeted her. Coulson, Mack and Fitz quickly learned how: they had a list of Inhumans who would be in the area — a list that matched S.H.I.E.L.D.’s own Sokovia Accords database.
Fortunately, they were able to get this information back to Director Jeffrey Mace before the president ordered an attack on all known Inhumans. This information caused Mace to unveil the new S.H.I.E.L.D. earlier than planned in a press conference which revealed the Inhumans were not to blame, but the damage was done; the blackouts had caused the widespread fear and paranoia that the Watchdogs wanted.
The episode’s final moments revealed how the Watchdogs got their hands on such sensitive information. Nadeer had passed the Sokovia Accords along to them, and she was the one who organized the global attacks. This attitude was hardly surprising, as set up by her cable news appearances across the episode, where she delivered speeches that revealed her deep suspicions about the Inhumans. What was surprising, however, was that she conducted her Watchdog business in the home of an Inhuman who was midway through Terrigenesis. It appeared as though he had been that way for quite some time, as his house was littered with unopened mail. However, it’s unclear what his relationship to Nadeer is.
“Uprising” also resolved May’s ghost sickness. While Lucy’s other victims died of fear, Simmons and Holden Radcliffe realized they had to kill May in order to save her; that is, May needed a “hard reboot.” They temporarily stopped her heart and revived her, but only after a local blackout and a few harrowing minutes in which they had no electricity with which to restart her heart. When revived, May remembered nothing of her ordeal.
Airing Tuesdays at 10 pm ET/PT on ABC, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Chloe Bennet as Daisy “Quake” Johnson, Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May, Iain De Caestecker as Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Alphonso “Mack” Mackenzie and more.
