In Washington, DC, former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill leaves the Department of Justice and tells her superiors that she is still busy answering Congressmen's questions. Maria is well aware that several American agents are watching her, but realizes that the one behind her has disappeared... and that the other surveillance agents are dead. She takes off into an alley and finds Melinda waiting for her. Maria says that she's going to work with Stark and they're privatizing global security. Melinda asks Maria to help Coulson and admits that he won't take it from her anymore. Maria asks how much Coulson knows about TAHITI and Melinda wants to know if Alexander Pierce--a HYDRA infiltrator--was the one who ordered Fury to use alien technology on Coulson and rewrite his memories. Maria says that Fury buried the intel about who ordered him to resurrect Coulson, and claims that Fury is dead. The police pull up and order Maria to drop her weapons. Melinda has already slipped away...

Episode Quotes
Jemma: I wish this bunker had a bunker.

Coulson: If I come out, will you shoot me? 'Cause then I won't come out.

Grant: Do you--do you think this has been easy on me? Do you have any idea how hard it was? The sacrifices, the decisions I had to make? But I made them. Because that's what I do. I'm a survivor.
Skye: You are a serial killer

Grant: Maria Hill. I kind of hoped you went down with the Triskelion.
Maria Hill: And I kind of hoped you weren't the duplicitous lowlife you turned out to be, but here we are.
