Wailiea Beach, Maui – Six Months Ago
Andrew joins Melinda on the beach and takes a photo of her. She reminds him that they'll be home in 24 hours, and asks what Andrew would say if she didn't go back to S.H.I.E.L.D. Melinda warns that there are a lot of reasons why things won't work out between them, and she doesn't want to be one of them. Andrew assures her that she won't, and offers a toast to new beginnings. Melinda joins him.
Two days later, Andrew calls Coulson and says that he doesn't know when Melinda will come back. He goes through Jiaying's things that Coulson sent him, and warns Coulson that he wouldn't wait for Melinda to call him. Once Andrew hangs up, he opens a book and Terrigen mists pour out. In a matter of seconds he petrifies.
At the base, Daisy complains to Coulson that Rosalind and the ATCU is putting Inhumans in a stasis. As Andrew tags along, Coulson reminds Daisy that she iced herself to stop from hurting them. Daisy insists that everyone deserves a chance to be who they are, and Andrew warns that just because she was able to control her powers doesn't mean that every Inhuman will. Coulson points out that Lash is a threat and Daisy insists that he's an exception. They go to Coulson's office and he explains that he's meeting with the President off the books to brief him on the Inhuman situation. He'll go in as a consultant for the ATCU and accompanying Rosalind, and says that he wants Daisy to talk to Rosalind and win her over to her side. Andrew says that it might help if Daisy can present an Inhuman caught in the middle. Daisy notes that Joey is due for reassessment and Andrew offers to check in on him.
Andrew goes down the hall, passing Mack as he talks to someone on the phone. Jemma approaches Andrew and he assures her that she did the right thing telling Fitz the whole truth. In the lab, Jemma approaches Fitz and shows him the phone that she had with her on the alien planet.
Melinda and Bobbi fly back to base and Melinda remembers Werner telling them that Andrew was an Inhuman before he went comatose. Bobbi assures her friend that they'll get Grant, and hopes that Melinda will stick around. She mentions Lash and explains that he can transform into a man. They arrive at the base and Melinda goes over Andrew's files. Daisy comes across her and hugs her, and Melinda interrupts to say that she has to talk to Andrew. Much to her surprise, Daisy says that she's at an off-site training facility, the Cocoon.
At the Cocoon, Joey concentrates and uses his ability to shape metal. Andrew imagines transforming into Lash and killing him, and then tells Joey that control is important. Joey says that Daisy thinks he could be an asset to S.H.I.E.L.D., and Andrew reminds him that he'll make the final determination.
In the base locker room, Lance finds Bobbi and they kiss. She assures him that he's all right, and Lance points out that they're one step closer to finding Grant. Bobbi says that it's not a good idea at the moment, and Lance admits that everything he did was to protect her. His ex insists that she doesn't want either of them going after Grant, and tells Lance that he's been reckless and stupid. Lance admits that he's been stupid because he loves her, and Bobbi says that she doesn't want to lose him or themselves to revenge.
Rosalind rendezvouses with Coulson on his plane, and he tells Daisy to show the ATCU leader around.
Fitz removes the chip from Jemma's phone and examines the photos of the planet. There are photos of Will as well, and Fitz angrily slams his fist on the table. As he walks away, a voice log of Jemma plays and he goes back.
Joey tells Andrew that he feels empowered now, and Andrew figures that he's accepted his powers. The young man wants to join Daisy's team of Inhuman agents, and Andrew warns that he could be a dangerous weapon. As he moves toward Joey, Melinda and two guards burst in and she orders the guards to take Joey away. once they're alone, Melinda tells Andrew that they need to talk.
Lincoln meets secretly with Mack and explains that he doesn't want to contact Daisy and put her at risk. His friends are missing or dead, and figures that Lash is in S.H.I.E.L.D. With Mack's help, Lincoln hopes to prove it.
Daisy shows Rosalind around the plane and shows her the containment pod. She points out that the ATCU shoot at people like her, and Rosalind insists that they're not just throwing Inhumans away. Daisy figures that Rosalind is afraid of people like her, and Constance readily admits that she is. She asks if Daisy could take the plane down or kill her, and says that only a few Inhumans to pose a threat.
Melinda tells Andrew that she's tracked his flight logs and confirmed that he was within 30 miles of at least five Inhuman deaths. She pulled his medical files and discovered that his blood tests are missing, and warns that he didn't cover his tracks. Melinda says that Werner didn't die in the blast and told her what Andrew did. She asks Andrew what happened to her, and he finally draws an icer and shoots her.
Fitz continues watching Jemma's videos as she slowly loses hope. She talks about how they first met and figures that he was annoyed with her following him around. Jemma talks about imagining what they'd have at dinner, and a cottage she once thought that they could live together. She finally shuts down the phone to conserve the battery, but promises that she'll always be with Fitz.
At culver University, Melinda wakes up and finds herself chained to a generator in an empty building. Andrew comes in and apologizes, and admits that he panicked. He says that he needed time to explain and couldn't figure out how to tell her. Furious, Melinda tries to pull free and Andrew warns that instinct will take over like it did in the store. She points out that he killed several men, and Andrew explains that he was exposed to the Terrigen Mist when he found a book with the names of all the Inhumans. Later, he emerged from his stone cocoon and felt like a part of him was unlocked. Andrew was compelled to be near the Inhumans, and had a hunger on his skin. When he met the first one, he lashed out and killed the first one. Andrew ended things with them to protect Melinda, and insists that he loves her... and needs her help.
Coulson receives word of the incident at the Cocoon. Rosalind admits that she may have overstepped with Daisy and assures Coulson that she hasn't told anyone that Daisy
