Oh, the Inhumanity! In a new clip from "Boom," the next episode of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," former S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist Holden Radcliffe provides the Inhuman-hating Superior a means to his end. That is to say, the Superior has a plan to wipe out the Inhumans, and Radcliffe just handed him the key.
The clip begins when Radcliffe gets a late night visit from the Superior and his right hand man. In it, the Superior demands an Inhuman with which to lure S.H.I.E.L.D. into a trap. Though they don't have an Inhuman on hand, Radcliffe does have the means to create one: raw Terrigen crystals. Radcliffe tells the Superior that he received them from his previous benefactor, who happened to be an Inhuman called Hive who was hellbent on creating a world ruled by Inhumans.
Additionally, Radcliffe now possesses the Darkhold, which holds a bevy of multidimensional knowledge. Radcliffe hopes it holds the key to immortality; the Superior believes it contains a way to wipe out the Inhuman menace. However, as seen in the clip, the Darkhold has made one thing clear to the Superior: he needs Radcliffe's help.
