Episode 16:

Related note - the SHIELD cast was at the Civil War premiere tonight. :)

Malick's house, 1970. Gideon's father died. The brothers discuss Whitehall. Gideon says we're not getting him. Dad never believed in Whitehall's Hydra.

Malick comes home. His daughter is waiting. They hug. He says we need to talk. She thinks our guest is handsome. He showed up and asked me to gather the inner circle. Hive greets them. Gideon asks to what do we owe this pleasure? Hive wants to reveal his true self.

Coulson staring at the Ward photo. May says you didn't kill him hard enough. LOL. He says I'm sorry about Andrew. She doesn't want to talk about that any more than you want to talk about this. She would've made the same choice. He knows the company line. but feels like we're only fixing problems we created. She hopes she'll get to kill him, too.

Daisy and Mack. He's looking better. He says she's not. Fitz and Simmons say Ward is actually the creature from the other planet. Who knows what it has planned here? Mack asks Daisy if she saw anything in the future that helps? Coulson summons them to the office.

Discuss the thing that looks like Ward, and Gideon's takeovers. Coulson says Lincoln and Daisy have to stop in the Badlands. Lincoln says there's an Inhuman that might have knowledge. He'll explain on the way.

Gideon and his daughter. He tells her he saw the future. He saw his death. So much pain. Torn apart from the inside. Every cell was being destroyed. She wants him to tell their guest so he can save you. He says no. My killer was him.

A prison. The Malick brothers brought to Whitehall. He says you boys are of age now. Time you choose a path within Hydra, and I think you should choose mine. He's a man of science, not religion. Gideon calls him a coward. Whitehall says your father was no fool. Survived all the ceremonies by avoiding the white stone. There's a book in your father's study. You'll find it most illuminating.

Daughter doesn't think Hive will hurt Gideon. He says he thinks Hive will do it tonight. He thinks he no longer needs me and it makes sense. She says you've always been a faithful follower. Whatever this is, you can fix it. Remind him how important you are. I'll have a Scotch waiting when you're done.

The plane in space. Daisy remembering again. Lincoln asks what's on her mind? She asks about this Inhuman. He says potential Inhuman. He didn't have powers at Afterlife. Australian, former military. He ranted about a second coming of an Inhuman that could raise the dead.

Coulson and Fitz and Simmons discussing the Hive alien. Mack says they're nearing the facility. Giyera has been there.

Malick finds Hive looking around the grounds. Hive says your daughter impresses me. She's a true believer. Gideon says he raised her like his father raised him. He asks if Hive remembers things from his hosts. Hive says it'll all be made clear tonight.

Coulson says we need to make sure Giyera doesn't get away. Fitz put handprint locks in their guns. Can't be shot with their own weapons. Coulson says Giyera is former military, so he's dangerous without his powers, too.

Daisy and Lincoln arrive. He says we shouldn't use our powers. Lincoln tells James we only want to talk. Daisy steps on a landmine. If she moves, it'll go off.

Lincoln says we're not here to fight. James thinks Jiaying sent them. Daisy tries holding the mine down with her power so they can move back. Then she pops all the mines. And Lincoln zaps him unconscious.

Gideon thinks back to his brother. Whitehall was right. Dad would swap this stone so he'd never draw it. He was afraid to be the Traveler. Everything he said to us was a lie. Gideon says our family has upheld this faith for centuries and it will not end with us. We'll be better men. Together to the end.

Daughter asks him if he's okay. The others want to know why they're here. He addresses the inner circle. Time to begin. We're not here for a ceremony, but a celebration. We've devoted our lives to bringing the Hydra god back from exile. Hive walks in. They think he's Grant Ward. Yes, but this body is only a vessel. We've finally returned, thanks to the Malick family. For all you having doubts, see and believe. He reveals his true face.

Team in the building. Files and lab equipment gone. The rest destroyed.

James wakes. Lincoln says we only need information. James laughs. Lincoln says we're with SHIELD. Daisy says Jiaying's dead and Afterlife is a pile of ashes. Tell us what you know. James says he doesn't do things our of the kindness of his heart. Lincoln offers to make him one of us. Now James is interested.

Coulson says gather what's left for Simmons. Giyera is coming this way. He gets Giyera to chase him. To trap him with May. Not so fun when we take away your toys, is it?

May vs. Giyera. He draws blood. This is brutal. She knocks him out in the end.

Fitz says Coulson uploaded data to an oil field. Giyera's waking in the box. Coulson tells his men to get out of it.

James gives them a Cree something. The Ancient was a commander for the Inhuman army. All of us at Afterlife descended from the first inhumans. The artifact is theirs for the crystal. Lincoln tricks him. Not everyone deserves powers. James says Lincoln nearly murdered his last girl. Men like him don't change!

Daughter pours scotch for Gideon. He toasts her. They drink. Guest gave her Paradise Lost. Gideon says that's very thoughtful. She says you're not still questioning him. Gideon says no, not anymore. They say goodnight and I love you.

Simmons talks about Starlings and other invasive species. Maybe It was afraid of it. She has a theory. thinks It is a parasite. Coulson is upset.... Fitz asks is there something wrong? Coulson says you were there. You saw. You did the right thing. But I crossed the line. Fitz says Ward did deserve it. Coulson says payback isn't what we do here. When I killed him, he won. I knew it'd come back to haunt me.

Mack tells Giyera you'll tell us everything you know. Giyera says without SHIELD, he wouldn't have come home. Those who are worthy will inherit a better world. May says we're nearing Dutch airspace.

Malick looks in the old book. No stone. Hive says you kept it, after all these years. Daughter is here. Hive says You've had this stone since that day at the pond. You knew you'd never be chosen. Tell, me, Gideon, was it a deliberate betrayal, or did you do it to save your own life? Gideon says I loved Nathaniel. She asks what is he saying? Hive says your father isn't the brave man he claims to be.

Nathaniel was chosen as the Traveler.

Hive says what happened to together to the end, brother? Gideon says I never gave up on you. Everything has been for your return. She says all these years, you lied to my face? Hive says he was selfish. He gets it from our father. Gideon says I'll die, but not as a coward. She tells Hive do what you have to. Hive still needs a Malick by his side, and kisses her. Kills her! Now you understand sacrifice.

Daisy asks Lincoln about the girl. I need the truth or whatever we are ends now. Lincoln says okay. You know how we've talked about most Inhumans have this empty feeling. I tried to fill it with vodka. I couldn't control the drinking or my temper. My girlfriend thought she could help me be a better person. We fought a lot. The more I drank, the angrier I got. I got in the car, she got in with me, and we ended up wrapped around a telephone pole. Gordon saved us. Brought me to Afterlife. First time I felt like that emptiness might be filled one day. He says I'd never hurt you. Sorry I didn't tell you sooner. I don't want any more secrets. She says there's something I have to tell you. Another glimpse into the future. I don't know when, but someone on our team is gonna die.

Giyera shaking the box.

Fitz in the cargo hold. Giyera gets out. Alert goes off. Fitz and Mack lose. Coulson is knocked out. May says you're not getting this plane without a fight. Giyera makes the pilot plunge the plane toward the ground. They can't pull up. But manage to land it.

May checks on Simmons. Tries to call Daisy. Giyera knocks her out.

Daisy says the line's dead. Lincoln says you put together the Secret Warriors initiative for a reason. She agrees to call them in.

Malick's mansion. Hive says Giyera's captured a SHIELD ship with several prisoners. Hive says you have nothing else to fear. Together to the end. Gideon's a wreck.

Next ep - Secret Warriors. One of them is not what they seem. SHIELD will shatter.

Image credit: The CW

Commentary - Laurel/Black Canary have deserved better. Anyone remember when Laurel was the lead female character of the show? Misstep after misstep.... Hat's off to Katie Cassidy. She's been classy and patient through all the trolls online, frustration with being separated from the rest of the plot, and training to be the strongest she could to do her own stunt work. Always classy in interviews and on social media despite people giving her so much shit.

The Black Canary is one of DC's longest running female superheroes, with a story entwined with The Green Arrow's. To do this......why even call this a superhero/comic show anymore? This show was amazing when Greg Berlanti was involved on a more daily business. I wish he'd stayed as more than an overseer. A lot of people are done with Arrow after tonight and that's really sad. That takes really pissing most people off for them to completely abandon a show that used to be must-see TV.

I'm an editor and writer for a living, so don't even get me started on this whole producers' quote of "We didn't know who we were going to kill, just that we wanted a permanent death in a grave at the beginning of season 4." Um, what? Okay - when writing a book, there are two ways - plotting and seat-of-the-pants. Plotters work off a detailed outline and pretty much stick to it. Pantsers have an idea and an end goal and figure out the ways to get to the end as they go. TV dramas are written based on outlines! The whole point is to have known beats you're hitting through a season. Writers meet at the end of the previous season to start plotting the new one, so it's TOTALLY BOGUS that they wanted to do a death without figuring out who it would be at the same time of that decision. Unfocused writing for TV gets a TV show canceled because the audience sees that you're making it up as you go and have no clue what you're doing!

Will I - K.C. - enjoy the rest of season 4? I don't know. This show needs to seriously impress me and at least make this stupid death count for a hell of a lot. Laurel was part of Oliver's life since they were kids. THAT MEANS SOMETHING.

I've collected all the interviews I've seen post-airing at the forum.

"It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness."

Women trying on make-up. A man compliments her. I'm a professional photographer. I'd love to shoot some test shots. Her friend says we're in. He hands over his card. You really do have an amazing look.

Nick playing with Kelly, talking to him. Can you say Daddy? Mama? Can you say Grimm? Adalind comes out in a towel. Phone rings. She answers it. It's Eve. How are you? Fine. How are you? I need to talk to Nick. He takes the phone. Can you come here now? He asks if it can wait? She says no. He's coming over. She says that was creepy. He says that's how she is now.

Woman parks and heads to the photo studio. Sorry I'm late. The man says he's just finishing up here. He comes out of the office. Shows her photo examples. She brought some clothes. He offers water. She says she's good, just nervous. He picks something and says start with that. Tells her where to pose and guides her through it. Next dress. She's getting the hang of it. 3rd dress. Flash blind. He says let's take a breaks and pours some water for her. She drinks. He looks at shots. She asks how am I doing? He says she's a natural. Could have a career. Ready for a little more? Sure. 4th dress. She's woozy. Asshole drugged her. She's dizzy. I need to sit down. She takes the couch. He looks at photos. She passes out. Summer? He wogues and bends over her face. Sucking on it?

Eve and Nick. She tells him what's not in the reports. The assassin was in the hospital and we had his phone. Renard was supposed to kill him. Only someone could've known would make that call. Renard is going to run for mayor. We better know who he's involved with. Don't do anything except tell me here he's going to be. When? Soon. Thank you for coming.

Summer wakes. What time is it? A little after 9. He shows her some shots. She's impressed. He'll send some to her.

Her friend reviews them. Looks at Summer. You have a little wrinkle. Might've been a shadow. Summer looks in a mirror. Friend is going out for drinks with Colin. See you in the morning. Summer's freaking out about the wrinkles. She's aging by the second. Her whole body. She collapses. Tries to get to her phone.

Photographer brings a jar to a man. Is this illegal? No. We need to take this slow. I told you not to use it. This could ruin everything. It's powerful stuff, a little goes a long way. Where's my money? Man hands it over. Photographer leaves the car. Man unscrews the jar and puts the stuff on his eye wrinkles.

Roommate comes home. Summer? Spots the body. Screams. Summer is an old woman.

Hank and Nick at the precinct. Nick says he saw Eve last night. Captain here yet? No. Even thinks Captain might've been in on it. Sean arrives and asks them into his office. Need your opinion. I was supporting Andrew Dixon. I've been asked to take his place. I haven't made up my mind, yet. What do you think? Would you back me if I said yes? Sean would have to resign if he wins. Nick says if it's what you want, we'll back you.

Eve was right. Was in on the assassination? hank thinks Sean is getting played. Nick thinks maybe he's taking advantage of what's come his way. Until we know, don't say anything.

The Wesen was only the supplier. Nick says there will be a lot of victims.
