Synopsis: After Enoch’s sacrifice propelled them out of the time storm, the team arrives back in 1983 where Nathaniel and Kora are hard at work building an army of hand-selected anarchist Inhumans at Afterlife.
Having escaped from the time storm. The team immediately sets about attempting to rescue the captured Inhumans from Nathaniel and Kora, but also must try and get Kora our alive as well. To that end, they split up into two teams. Daisy is tasked with protecting her mother Jiaying while Coulson with some help from Gordon attempt to get Kora out.
Meanwhile, Nathaniel has recruited John Garrett to his cause and is working on making him into an inhuman.
James Paxton the son of the late Bill Paxton takes on the younger version of his late Fathers role as John Garrett and knocks it out the park. The scenes he has with Coulson are brilliant fun, but Paxton’s portrayal of the role will do his later father proud.
We get some brilliant scenes between Chloe Bennet and Dichen Lachman as Daisy with a little help from Sousa set out to explain to Jiaying that they are from the future. This is made difficult for Daisy because she can’t reveal to Jiaying that she is her daughter, but added to that is the fact that Daisy never knew about Kora who happens to be her big sister.
Thomas E. Sullivan continues to be menacing as Nathaniel who is still pretty much working on his own agenda. The teaming of Nathaniel and Garrett provides a fun duo, but how long will the bromance last?
A fairly strong episode, which ends on a knife-edge as we see the bad guys getaway in the Zephyr with a hostage in tow. Elsewhere, Coulson, Agent May, Mack, and Daisy will have to lick their wounds and figure out another rescue plan and restore the timeline to normal.
