Miami. A party. Man does slight of hand. Yo-Yo there. She's a bridesmaid for a wedding. mack calls. Maria answers it. Power goes out in the area. BIG area. Helicopter falls out of the sky and crashes into a building.
Inhuman Resistance will use their powers against the people unless registration ends. Director asks the team about what's going on. PR guy is worried about bad publicity. Mack and Phil will be sent to Miami.
Coulson and Simmons watching May's vitals remotely. They hang up on Simmons. He wants to know where she is and who is treating her. Director says she's in Upstate NY in a CDC facility. The infected man freaks out and then dies. Simmons says May has 24 hours. She has an idea. Director tells her to make it happen. Then tells Coulson to go to Miami.
Yo-Yo still at the party. Knows it was an EMP. People want to leave. yo-Yo says they're safer here. But people want to get out.
Daisy and GR. He's going to see his uncle. An electrical engineer at that lab. The news tells them about the inhuman resistance attack. GR hopes it won't hit LA. And it just did.
Dr. Radcliff and AIDA. He's a bit snappy and worried about May. AIDA needs to sleep again. She understands. SHIELD arrives.
May is still ranting and seeing visions. Simmons and Radcliff working on her. Simmons says we have less than 6 hours until certain death.
Coulson watching the news about the Inhumans. 4 cities blacked out. Coulson says it doesn't feel right. Fitz will locate, disable, and trace it to the source of the EMP.
People vandalizing and looting already. GR's car still works. Daisy says Inhumans wouldn't do this. She doesn't buy the sold my soul story. He thought if he settled the score, it would go away. But nothing has worked. It I settle my uncle's score... Or he rides with it forever.
His brother rolling on the sidewalk. GR and Daisy arrive. And get in a fight with the thugs. Daisy saves the little brother to her detriment. They get the thugs down. They get Gabe in the car.
Yo-Yo trying to appeal to her friend. Armed men come in the courtyard. Not here for money. Here for the Inhuman.
They put a device on May. Imaging her brain. The infected are literally scared to death.
Coulson and team on the way. Mack hasn't heard from Yo-Yo. He's worried.
The gunmen want the Inhuman in the hotel. Yo-Yo's friend isn't nice in talking about Inhumans.
Director on the comm. I need a win, Phil. President will do something. They enter the blackout zone and everything is down. Coulson's arm is stuck gripping the steering wheel. Fitz is freaking out that none of his tools will work. Love their banter.
Daisy's arm had snapped again. She asks him what happens when he gets hurt? He doesn't get hurt. Self-heals. He's been run over twice. Next day he's good as new. He can get her meds or supplies, but doesn't know how to help otherwise. She notices the photos around. Gabe doesn't know about the night job and never will, understood? She stays in the house.
Slight of hand guy is being beat up. Yo-Yo takes a gun. And another. People turn on her. Coulson and crew show up. Fight time! bad guys down. Yo-Yo's friend says stay away from me. Elena says I'm still your friend. Maria says no. Mack asks Yo-Yo if she's okay. Tells Coulson about the gunmen. He says search them.
May's running out of time. Radcliff says we have to kill her.
Fitz starting into the fountain. Coulson interrogating the vigilantes. Who have military vests. Watchdogs.
Daisy and Gabe. He asks how she knows Robbie. She says he gave her a ride. Gabe has made peace with his wheelchair. Without me, his wheels would come off. He's always out alone at night. Bad things come from bad people. He's trying to figure her out.
Yo-Yo finds paper. Inhuman Reg. List. Fitz still working on some calculation. He can solve this. Needs corks and needles and bowls of water. Making compasses.
Radcliff wants to reboot May's brain. We're out of time and options. Simmons says we have 7 minutes before May would have irreparable brain damage. She injects her. May flatlines.
Fitz tells them how to use the compasses. Taking notes.
Less than 2 minutes. Time to shock May. Power fails! Simmons does compressions.
Simmons still working. Radcliff worried about the power.
SHIELD. President calls. 7 cities under control. We'll black out 7 more. Pres. wants to send troops in and take out Inhumans by any means necessary.
Fitz assembles coordinates. X marks the spot.
Simmons still working on May. Radcliff says ......he remembers AIDA. Simmons stops pumping. AIDA's battery hooked up and they shock May. May finally gasps alive. Where am I? Get this crap off of me! Simmons hugs her. May says did I miss something?
Coulson and crew in a building. Hear voices. Watchdogs with the device. We're outgunned. Any suggestions? Yo-Yo goes to work. Steals their weapons. the boys go hand to hand. Watchdogs down. Fitz kills power to the device. Power comes on. Watchdogs are going global. Coulson calls the Director.
Daisy's arm looks awful. Power comes on. Gabe asks if she's Quake. He felt the earth rumble. Don't worry, your secret's safe with me. As long as you leave and never come near my brother again. He needs good people around him and that's not you. Ouch.
SHIELD HQ. Coulson updating the Director. It's important to know when to throw out the plan.
Yo-Yo and Mack. He wishes Daisy was here. So you're not going to come clean? Yo-Yo gave her word. He's mad. You used me! She says Daisy makes contact and she doesn't want to be found. She knew about the man on fire, too. Angry looks good on you, Mack. He doesn't like that comment. He doesn't want secrets between them. She says there's nothing else between us. Coulson and Fitz enter. Director on the TV. At Capital Hill. He says the Inhumans didn't do this. Human extremists did, to spread fear.
Robbie returns in the morning. Where's Daisy?
Director says an old friend turned the light back on, and that old friend is SHIELD. Fitz liked working in the shadows. Coulson gets a call. It's May. She's cranky. She says it should be you out there. He says no, I'm where I belong.
Daisy listening to the broadcast. She shuts it off before the Director's catch phrase ends.
Senator Nadeer keeps saying the Inhumans were responsible. Watchdogs took out 17 Inhumans worldwide. Someone she loves is in the stone.
Next ep - They take Robbie in.
