In Batesville, Utah, a clerk, Taylor, is reading an article about four scientists dying in a lab accident when a woman comes in. Taylor stares at her and finally says that Jack Benson was a friend of his. He asks the woman, Hannah Hutchins, if it's true that Jack's death was her fault when she was Jack's manager. Hannah tries to leave without answering, and Taylor steps in front of her and demands an answer. Cans suddenly start flying off the shelves and hitting him. Taylor runs out and realizes that the gas pumps are pumping out gas. He runs off while inside, Hannah crouches and cries, saying that it's happening again. The gas finally explodes, ripping out the front of the building...

Episode Quotes
Coulson: That's why we're going to Batesville--to conduct an index asset evaluation and intake.
Skye: Does that mean we talk to her and see if she has powers?
Coulson: Basically.
Skye: Well, that needs a better name--less IRS, more better. Something like the Welcome Wagon.

Coulson: Well, it does use giant magnets to fire billions of subatomic particles into anti-particles at the speed of light to create miniature big bangs, so it seems like a good place to start. (everyone stares) I read.

Cultural References
Skye: I didn't go to your stupid S.H.I.E.L.D. Hogwarts or whatever.

Hogwarts School of Magic is where most of the Harry Potter novels by J.K. Rowling take place.
