Last week, the team went on mission to find a way to save Skye’s life. Led by Coulson and Ward’s former S.O., John Garrett, they find the Guest House, where Coulson was during his questionable resurrection process.
They find a substance called GH-325 that was used on Coulson that allowed his cells to begin regenerating. As the team rushes back to give it to Skye, our favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. agent delves deeper into the Guest House and discovers a room labeled T.A.H.I.T.I. (because, apparently, someone really wanted their initials to spell “Tahiti”). In the room, Coulson finds a large container labeled “GH” that contains the top half of a human-like form where the GH formulas are being pumped from.
Speculation is all over the internet as to what that thing was, my favorite theory is that it is a Kree, an alien race that could open up a world of storytelling possibilities including a tie in to Guardians of the Galaxy.
Coulson tries to stop his team from injecting Skye with the mystery liquid but doesn’t make it in time. After a momentary seizure, Skye seems to have stabilized and is a little farther away from the edge of danger.
The episode ends with a tease to this weeks villainous, Lorelei, and her seductive powers.
Marvel has released some more clips that continue her storyline as well as introduce Lady Sif to our team of agents.

The episode seems to be a deviation from the overall story arc they’re building up, but in the spirit of #everythingisconnected, I think we’re going to see character development by putting Ward and May’s relationship in the fore-front of the episode rather than plot development.
I’m looking forward to seeing Lady Sif interacting with Migardians, how about you?
