Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Broken Promises
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. puts its Ghost Rider storyline behind as it moves forward with S.H.I.E.L.D. dealing with an out-of-control Aida (Mallory Jansen) who has replaced May (Ming-Na Wen) with an android, attacked and murdered agents, and invaded S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters to get its hands on the Darkhold. Things don't go exactly as planned for the android, who faces Mack (Henry Simmons) and all his anti-robot wisdom (from years of sci-fi movies), but the episode's closing scenes show this storyline is far from over (and the android isn't the one behind the search for the Darkhold).
While Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team attempt to fight off the android and keep her from finding the evil magic book which gave her consciousness, Director Mace (Jason O'Mara) takes Daisy (Chloe Bennet) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) in search of Senator Nadeer (Parminder Nagra) and the Inhuman brother (Manish Dayal) she's preparing to turn over to the Watchdogs to be murdered. The team may fail in their mission, but as with the Aida storyline, it seems death may just be the beginning.
