Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Chaos Theory

"Chaos Theory" offers the not too terribly exciting backstory of how Andrew (Blair Underwood) became an Inhuman as Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) confronts her ex-husband about what she learned from Werner von Strucker (Spencer Treat Clark). Based on their own tip from Lincoln (Luke Mitchell), Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team, working with Rosalind Price (Constance Zimmer), also make the connection between Lash and Andrew and work to capture the threat. The team-up between the two shadowy govermnent agencies also allows for a debate between Daisy (Chloe Bennet) and Price over how the ATCU deals with Inhumans they have captured. Surprisingly Daisy is rather inept and arguing against turning innocent people, who may or may not actually turn out to be dangerous, into Popsicles without any kind of due process.

The back-up stories involve Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) learning more about Simmons' (Elizabeth Henstridge) cosmic adventure and Bobbi (Adrianne Palicki) and Hunter (Nick Blood) coming to an understanding about the state of their relationship and the hunt for Ward (Brett Dalton). The epilogue also reveals the connection between Hydra and the ATCU which, according to the preview of next week's episode, will be the latest problem S.H.I.E.L.D. will be forced to deal with. Price's connection to Hydra may also hit close to home for Coulson's whose teased personal relationship with the head of the ATCU is confirmed here as well.
