Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013–…): Season 2, Episode 12 - Who You Really Are - full transcript

Coulson and the team help a confused Lady Sif, who has lost her memory after a battle with a mysterious warrior.

Previously on Marvel's
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D...

You and Mack have that secret
to keep under wraps.

This again?
Oh, and now Mack's in on it?

I'm just wondering if it means you're

- bringing Hunter in on the other thing?
- No.

I shouldn't have to ask any of you
to save one of our own.

- You never ask.
- That's enough!

You survived the destruction
because you caused it.

And I'm pretty sure the DNA results
we're running right now

are gonna confirm it.
There's something wrong with you.

Her DNA is an exact match to
what it was before. She's clear.

What did you just do?

I switched your blood results with
your old samples.

The new samples are different?


For now we should just
keep it between us.

There is something very wrong with me.


I must find Kava.

Sorry, I don't know who that is.

You guys?


A pretty lady like you
shouldn't be out here all alone.

I can help you find Kava.

I can help you with
anything else that you need.

Lady, who the hell are you?

I do not know.

Not bad.

But once I'm pinned,
you should try for a finishing blow.

You want full Mortal Kombat?

I want you to stop holding back, Skye.

I didn't wanna hurt you.

I didn't wanna try to hurt you.

I feel like
I'm constantly on the verge of...

- I don't know.
- Look,

we lost Trip, and it hurts like hell.
But you can't shut those feelings out.

Can't sustain that.

Well, what's my option?
I just lose it right here?

We've talked about this. Control.

Embrace your emotions, your nerves.

Use them. On your terms.

I don't know.

What I'm feeling is pretty dark.

I'm afraid I'm gonna go postal
and tear your head off.

Go for it. I promise you won't.

Maybe Skye needs a break.

Training is not a group activity.


I just came down to have...

Uh, see what it's about.

I'll tell you what, Fitz.
Come back in an hour.

I'd be happy to show you
what it's all about.

I'm fine, Fitz.


It would be pretty funny to see
you and Fitz go at...

Okay, I guess we're back on.

And not holding back.

Oh, my God.


So, Coulson called me
into his office the other day.


Thought he was gonna
read me the riot act.

S.H.I.E.L.D.'s rules about
fraternizing with fellow operatives.

They're strict.

But he made me an offer.

Wants to make
my position here permanent.

He's short-handed now.

You thinking about it?

Well, I wasn't thinking of leaving
anytime soon.

And I wouldn't mind
taking on some more responsibility.


Did you hear the words
that just came out of your mouth?

Yeah, that sounded
a bit strange, didn't it?

Yeah, who is that guy?

I don't know.

But I do not trust him.

Anyhow, can't hurt. Plus, this is fun.

Well, fun was never a problem for us.

No, you're right.
That part was always easy.

Till things go south.

Yeah, then you turn into
a bit of a nightmare.

I remember it well.

You tell me.

Seems the thing
that always came between us

was your dedication to S.H.I.E.L.D.

Now we're on the same team.

It's simpler.

The last Stark Copper Jackets.

I'll make sure Hill puts 'em on the list.

Anything else?

Sir, I can handle inventory myself.

You know, I hope
this isn't about my reaction after...

No, I told you, we're fine.

After Puerto Rico,
we need to take stock.

What happened out there was...

Yeah, I don't like thinking about that.

I don't blame you.
But I have been thinking about it.

And I realize
I've been wasting your talents.


Look, I know you love it
under the hood of a car,

but I could really use you
out in the field.

You're a force to be
reckoned with, Mack. Believe me.

Okay, but violence isn't really my thing.

You know, that alien crap
made me into something I'm not.

I know. But have you seen yourself?
You're a little bit of a beast all the time.

A blue dot operative in Portugal
phoned in.

You should hear what he has to say.

Looks like you're starting now.

Oh, you'll want everyone
on the bus for this.

Thank you for watching her.

I hear from the Prime Minister's office
I'm to hold this crazy lady here for you,

I hold this crazy lady.

How did you subdue her
and get her to wait?

No subduing.

She stayed willingly
once I told her I'd found Kava

and he was on his way to meet her.


But I'm not Kava.

I'm glad I'm not the one
who has to tell her that.

Pick up her sword from booking
before you go.

So you are not Kava.

No, but I'm a friend.

Son of Coul. See?

We've worked together before.

I apologize. I do not remember.

You have no memory of who you are?

I... I know I am from Asgard.

But I do not remember my home there.

You tell me my name is Lady Sif,

but why I left Asgard,
what brought me here to Midgard,

why I wear these hides
instead of armor,

a mystery.

One I'll help you solve.

I'm sure a clue will turn up somewhere.


Skye found it.

That's me.

I don't remember this.

I'm a decent fighter.

This guy can hold his own
against you. Impressive.

Last time you were here
you came to collect a rogue Asgardian.

That would explain his strength.


she traveled across the universe
to find him. He's dangerous.

Make that more than dangerous.

We know you were after him.

Question is, what's he after?

Take me to your supplies.

Powering elements. Fuel.

Do not try and fight me.

Someone on your world has changed.

I'm here to hunt them down.

What do you want from me?

Don't worry.

You won't remember.

We found a couple of other videos
of the fight,

and we've been analyzing them
frame by frame, which...

Which didn't get us much
in the way of, um...

Of anything new.

Yeah, thanks. Um, until we get to here.

I do very much enjoy that part.

So he's wearing something mechanical.
And she nailed it.

And there's more.

What is that?

- Blood?
- I hope so. It could give us a lead.

Well, there's no way to know
from the video.

Once we land, Fitz, you go with Hunter
and Mack, handle forensics.

I need you and Bobbi
to talk to witnesses in the area,

see if we can track down
where this guy went.

Sir, the science division has loaded the
team with heavier suppression artillery.

After Raina's vanishing act,
we advise that when you find this man,

you contain him first,
ask questions later.

New ICERs are still in development.

Very good. Keep me posted.

New ICERs?

Oh. The mechanical design
is still top-notch.

But we're looking into a more
concentrated dendrotoxin formula.

And wouldn't that be dangerous?

But effective.

Given these elevated threats,
we can't risk it not being.

My mind is that of a lost adolescent.

I can provide no information of value.

Not totally true.

Judging by your clothes,
we know you were undercover.

Probably something you learned
after your last visit here.

Your usual full-armor look
is a little more conspicuous.

So you're saying
I wear that armor most of the time?


Does this mean I'm a warrior?

A good one.

A great warrior.

It's just details
that you're missing.

You must remember things
about your home world, right?

Only basic lessons a child would learn.

The name of your sword?

What about Thor?


I do not know this word.
Yet, when you say it, I want to smile.


Who can explain the mysteries
of the Asgardian brain?

I can.

I can't see any blood.

Fitz, isn't there some special light
that finds blood?

Not blood.

What's up, Magnum P.I.?
You enjoying this?

Who doesn't like a good mystery?

I guess we're both
embracing new challenges.

That mean you're taking the permanent
position that Coulson offered?

He's a man down.

I know you have your reservations,
but I like the guy.

Don't you wanna see
how this plays out?



- What's that?
- I don't know.

This is about where
the big guy was standing

when Sif nailed him
with the sword, right?

- Yeah.
- Look at this.


I barely touched it, I swear.

Trust me, there is no universe in which
I think you did that on your own.

Turbo, what do you think?

- Simmons.
- Yes, Fitz.

We're uploading
some information to you.

Whatever came out of that guy's chest,

- I'm guessing it wasn't blood.
- I'll give it a look.

See? Who doesn't like a good mystery?

You speak Portuguese?

I'm no expert. It's a pretty language.
It's hard to gauge if someone's lying.

Are you an expert at that?

At lying or telling if someone's lying?

I have a feeling
you're probably an expert at both.

Can I help you?

Hi. Yes.

We're looking for anyone who may have
been injured in the incident at the pier,

or may have seen this man.


No, he does not look familiar to me.

As far as the injuries, I can ask around.

The nurse who was working earlier
took ill, so we are short-staffed.

It may take a while.

Okay. Well, we'll be here.

Wait. Is that woman all right?
What happened to her?

Yet you do not serve a king?

Not really how it works with us.

I wonder if I serve the king,
as the great warrior you say I am.

Odin? Oh, we know you do.
You've met him.

Shut up.

It's her!

I was just conducting my interview
with Mr. Cardozo here,

asking him what he saw
the other day, when...

You are a dangerous monster.

I am no monster.

I am sometimes dangerous,

but only toward
those who are deserving.

I do not actually know.
Is it only toward those who are...

No, that was right.


Answer his question, elderly man.

Look, just tell us what you saw
after they fought.

The man destroyed my booth!

What does he want with balloons?

He went for my helium,
broke off the valve and took them!

What does he need those for?

Sir, the boys were right.
That definitely wasn't blood.

What are we talking about?

It was liquid nitrogen.
The post was frozen solid and cracked.

He must have been carrying a supply,

and Sif must have damaged
his containment hardware.

So that's what he needed
the tank valves for. To repair it.

Why carry nitrogen?

Might've needed it for fuel.
Might have needed it for a weapon.

If he's alien, he might need it to breathe.

Not to breathe.

Only seven intelligent species
across the known realms

require heightened levels
of nitrogen gas, none humanoid.

I learned this as a child, did you not?

Bobbi. Anything?

Sir, we have evidence
he's here at the hospital.

It's a big place, though.
He might be hiding anywhere.

Well, we know he needs nitrogen.

And they use it in hospitals
to power surgical equipment.

I'd start there.

You do not wanna fight me.

We just have some questions for you.

Simmons is tending to Bobbi.
She's gonna be okay.

The guy was blue.

Like he-just-tested-
some-Willy-Wonka-gum blue,

and he needed nitrogen for
whatever device turned its skin pink.

Do you think he's a Kree?

You told me last year
the Kree had not visited our realm.

If a Kree came to your world
unannounced now,

I would assume he's up to no good.

He attacked Bobbi and Skye,
so that's a yes.

Yeah, the guy throws a mean punch.

Let's assume you were here to stop
him. We still don't know his objective.

No, but knowing he is Kree helps.

Kava, for example.

I thought it was a name.
It is a Kree word.

You also learn other species'
entire languages as a child?

- Kava means "keys."
- Keys?

A device used to unlock...

Yeah, I know keys.

It's something. Let's look into it.


thank you for engaging my enemy.

You are quite brave.

The whole room was shaking, Fitz.
The gun in my hand exploded.

Oh, God.

I thought that I could handle it,
but I can't. It's too much.

I think we have to tell Coulson
what's happening.

Hang on. Wait.
Just wait until I've or... Analyzed...

I can't control it when I get upset,
or nervous.

I'm running that diagnostic
on your blood samples right now.

Hopefully when it's done,
we'll have a solution.

Then there's nothing you...

Sorry to interrupt whatever this is.

Just wanted to check out
the new toys from sci-tech.


I'm gonna scour the web
for "key" references.

Yeah, you do that.

You, Ms. Morse, will live.

That's a relief.

I'll get you some antibiotic cream so
we can keep you nice and uninfected.

- Stay here.
- Thanks.

There goes your modeling career.

You should talk, pretty boy.

- You talk to Hunter?
- I did.

He's thinking about sticking around.

I heard.

I think it's good.

Things are good.

Maybe we should bring him on board.

No chance. That ship has sailed.

Besides the fact that you two have
a pattern that repeats itself,

you didn't tell him in the first place

because you didn't want him to know
that you've been lying to him.

Trust has never been our strong suit.

And we're building something real here.

I know he thinks so,

but how's he gonna feel
if you tell him now?

Well, you can't risk it.

He'll react badly, and it could
blow up in our face in a big way.

You can't bring him in on this, Bobbi.

What am I supposed to do?
I can't bring him in...

I don't want him here
in case he takes their side.

He's a friend.
I don't want him fighting against us.

He would never.


He loves you,
and he probably will always love you,

but I still think
he might be capable of killing you.

You're telling me to push him away?

I'm saying it's the only way you'll
ever have a chance to be together,

to make it work someday.

You remember what it felt like when
our friends turned out to be HYDRA.

We're not HYDRA.

You remember how it felt.

The best thing would be
if he decided to leave.

And he wasn't anywhere near here
when we pull the trigger on this thing.

And maybe there's a world
where we're all friends in the end.

I'm saying I can't find
any particular keys

that would be hugely important.

Not literal keys, not metaphorical keys,
not as in to the city.

- It doesn't mean that...
- Wait. Look at this.

"Chaves. A city known for
its sedimentary basins." I don't...

Guess what "Chaves"
means in English.

Let me guess. "Keys."

That's where the Kree was heading.

That's where I was chasing him.

That was my mission.

But Chaves, Portugal,
we've seen that name before.

It was in Whitehall's SSR file.

The site of his dig back in 1945,
where he first found the Obelisk.

That's where we have to go.


I'd like to sit this one out, please.

You all right?

Yeah, just after my run-in
with Blue Man Group,

I still feel a little banged up,

and I'm just worried I'm not gonna be
much help out there. So...

Okay. Whenever you're ready.

Is it really about being hurt?
Or is it about your nerves?

I promise, it's just about the guy

making me see cartoon birdies
all around my head. That's it.

Have Simmons give you
one more check while we're gone.

Let's make sure there's nothing serious.


Pull up the SSR file.

I wanna pinpoint
exactly where this Kree guy's going.

Stay right there.

Put your hands up.

You will not stop me.

Wanna bet?

I am here to help.

Is that why you attacked me, Kree?

You were the one who attacked.

I had to take your memory
to keep you from tracking me.

How did you track me?

You do not ask the questions, Kree.
You do not talk.

Actually, we need him to talk.

Look, I can prove that I'm not a threat,
and that I'm here to help.

Bring me my truncheon.

How very Kree.

He needs a weapon to make a point.

My truncheon can restore her memory.

Would that not be
a gesture of my noble intentions?

I'll consider it once we know
that thing does what you say it does.

Do you have a name?


And I will earn your trust.

Simmons left you with truncheon duty?

Funny word, "Truncheon."

She wanted to take more precautions
before investigating it.

But I figured there's certainly
more to it than meets the eye.

Been saying the same
about you for years.

Supposedly the Kree used this
to wipe Lady Sif's memory.

There's a dial on the bottom,

but none of our equipment can detect
any electrical or spectrographic signals.

Is that your fancy way of saying
you don't know how to turn it on?

Or if it can.

Well, I know something else
we could try turning on.

Hey, careful with that. You don't wanna
erase my hard drive, do you?

Like I said,
it doesn't seem to be working.

All right, then.

Well, maybe I can help you with it.

The sooner we get it done,
the sooner we can...

How are you gonna help me?

Can I just get a little space, please?


There she is.

I need time figuring this out.

Well, it seems like you already have.

Not at all.

I just think that we should
slow things down a little bit.

Yeah, okay, I get it.

Just a bit of fun, yeah?

Though usually things get a little more
heated before you turn frosty.

Okay, sweetheart. Consider us slowed.

Don't die out there, yeah?

Hey, Hunter.

It's possible that only he can operate it.

We've seen other alien materials
react to biology or DNA.

- Don't remind me.
- Or me.

We've all been there, done that.

Fitz and Simmons
will examine the case.

If this guy's telling the truth,

we might finally get the answers
we've been searching for.

Tell us how the truncheon works, Kree.

The Kree has a name.

And that only works when in my hand.

Hmm, that's convenient.

It has a dial on the bottom.



Sorry. The argument
was going nowhere.

You back with us?

Yes, my memories have returned.

I am Lady Sif ofAsgard.
Friend of the S.H.I.E.L.D.

Asgardian. Well, that explains a lot.

It is true, we do not trust Kree.

That is why I am here.

When Heimdall saw
that one landed on your world,

Odin charged me with retrieving him.

So you came to pick a fight?

We know enough about Kree history
to be concerned.

Well, then if you know Kree history,

perhaps you've heard
the tale of Terrigenesis.

Of course.

Ancient Kree descending on planets,

altering the inhabitants
to fight their war.

And Earth was one of them.

"Blue angels who fell from the sky."

Eons ago,
the Kree waged a very long war.

The casualties were high
and they needed more soldiers.

You mean cannon fodder.

We needed killers.

One vicious faction among the Kree

genetically modified
other creatures' DNA.

These modifications can be activated
with Terrigen Crystals.

We know
these torturous experiments failed.

Not on Earth.

Here, we had to shut them down.

This faction had built a city.

They brought with them the Diviners,
which hold the crystals.

Their plans were discovered
and thwarted by the better of my kind,

putting an end
to that dark chapter of our past.

Until now.

When I saw that
an ancient signal had been triggered,

I knew it had to be a Diviner.

If the Kree Empire learned that
these experiments were a success,

they would be likely to renew them.

Why did you come here?

These transformed beings
are abominations.

I knew that I had to find
the remainder of the Diviners

before another monstrosity occurred,

and erase any knowledge of it.

How many Diviners
are supposed to be in that crate?

Enough to create an army.

Sir, the crate is empty.

My worst fear has come true.

We have to assume
they were all taken

at the same time back in the '40s.

Does that mean HYDRA has them?

And if HYDRA doesn't, who does?

Fitz, what is this?

That's nothing. It's just, uh...

It's remarkable.

Extra macromolecules,
just like in Raina's blood.

But different ones. Whose DNA is this?

It's a simulation that I created.

Or a theory of a...

A simulation? Fitz, this is uncanny.

- Can I have it back, please?
- The precision, the detail,

it reads as real.

Yeah, it's just a simulation.

We must find the remaining Diviners
as well as anyone who's transformed.

We drowned the temple where the
Diviners are activated, so that's a plus.

And we do know the woman
who was changed.

So someone was transformed.

A Kree slave warrior created.
Have you put it down?

No, she disappeared.

What do you know of her?

We don't know much
about Raina's transformation.

Skye witnessed it, but didn't see much.

You were there?

What did you see?

I didn't. I mean, nothing.

Were there others with you?

The changes may not be
on the surface, but buried inside.

You must understand,
these creatures are weapons.


Even if they don't know it.

Another one?

Son of Coul, what is this?


You wanna talk to us?

Skye, what's doing this?

I am.


Hand her over. I will take her to Asgard.
It will be safer for all of you.

We will do no such thing.

The weapon
has been activated.

It needs to be eliminated
before it hurts someone.

Skye is not a weapon.

Coulson, no one is saying
Skye chose this.

But she is dangerous.

I don't wanna be this way.

Imagine what will happen
if your powers grow.

It may not stop at breaking glass.

You could bring down buildings.
Tear continents apart.

I can get a handle on it.

That's not
what you were designed for.

You were designed to destroy.
Which is why you must be put down.

Yeah, well, that sounds
an awful lot like killing to me.

- This is not your concern.
- Skye, let's go!

Fitz, we need Bambino! You want her?
You go through me.

What's going on?

Jemma, I'm so sorry.

You knew.

Lady Sif and the Kree
are trying to take Skye away.

Sif, you've got your memory back.

You know we're friends.

Consider what you're doing.

This is for the protection of your people.


Your friend Skye is an atrocity.
And I must go put an end to this.

We'll decide what she is.

But for now, you're not going anywhere.

This is not your fight.

Kind of is now.

Maybe we should call in
some real back-up.

This is twice now, you and me.

You must really love fighting.

Love fighting? No.

But you're coming after
one of my people.

So I'm willing to fight.

That's noble.

Stupid, but noble.

Hey, listen to me.

Just me. We can do this.
You can do this.

I can't! I can't make it stop.

You will control your emotions,
just like we practiced.

I can't make it stop. Everyone is at risk.

Just focus. Skye, look at me. Focus.

It'll stop.

Agent May, release the girl.

You knew you couldn't stop me.
So what was the point?

Just wanted the attention.

May, she'll get through!

Ignore it. Remember, focus.

I can't.


She harmed herself.

Even though she knew it meant
giving up her freedom.

All to save the rest of you.

Don't you see?
She wants to get better.

If you take her away
from the people she loves,

she'll only get worse.

I know you think I overreacted.

But this decision,

leaving Skye with you,

it carries real danger.

I want you to understand that.

I do. But we'll help her through it.

Have we arrived yet?

This does not seem familiar.

No, this is not your home planet.
Lady Sif will take you from here.

I apologize for my forgetfulness.

You have been very kind.

Why is my hand not blue?

You are in disguise from the people
pursuing you. Remember?


I will keep watch.

I'll return him to his home planet, Hala.

He'll remember none of this.

No more trouble
should come from there.

- But here...
- Yes,

there are other Diviners,

but we flooded the city
so no one can activate them.

We'll take every precaution.


your people make decisions
based on logic.


Usually. As do mine.

Leaving Skye with us
is the logical choice, I promise.

No, no, that is not what I mean.

Asgard is millennia beyond you
in our pursuit of science, of knowledge.

And we have learned,

there are some things
that can never be understood.

Is this little talk one of 'em?

I know you wish to affect the outcome,
but it may be...

It may be beyond that.

Are you talking about fate?

I am saying there are tides in the
universe that you cannot swim against.

Best of luck, Son of Coul.

Thank you.

Heimdall, open the Bifrost.

Not a lot of laughs, that one.

And when I say that about somebody...

You agree with her.

You think Skye's
more than we can handle.

Look, most of the time,
I believe what I see.

You know that. But...


You died.

You were brought back.

With a map to a city
encoded in your DNA.

Our team's first mission?

We picked up Skye.

Last week, we took her to that city.

I can't help but remember
what Lumley said.

Wherever Skye goes...

Death follows.



I know you feel that I could've been
a bit more forthright...


Fitz, as understatements go,

I think that qualifies
as an instant classic.

You lied to me.

Okay, so now we're even.

Could you blame me? The way
you were going on about Raina,

that she's a plague to be eradicated?
I mean...

Skye is my friend. She's different.

Oh, yeah, like I was your friend.
And then I changed.

How did you handle that?

The point is,
secrets don't help any of us.

Skye should've just come clean.

What? And risk being locked up?
Studied? Or who knows what else?

- No, I wouldn't let her.
- Oh, you wouldn't let her?

We could've handled her in a way
that would've kept everyone safe.

It wasn't fair to us, Fitz.
We had a right to know.

A right to know?

Is that the same way that Sif
and the Kree had a right to know?

I think this situation's
a little bit different, mate.

No, you would've done to her
exactly what they wanted to.

You don't know that.

Yes, I do know that! They would... You...

You'd handle her, Mack just said it,

like Skye's something to be
locked away in a cage somewhere.

We should be protecting her.

No, Fitz.

We're the ones
that need protection from her.


Let's talk.

Hey. What's going on?

You and Bobbi. What's up?

I don't know what you're talking...

No, I know you're
keeping something from me.

I don't know what it is,
but here's what I do know.

I know about the flash drive.
