Coulson is not the only one who has been practicing his art work.

Coulson is drawing more symbols. Skye tells him she has been researching information about the symbols. Melinda May and Bobbi Morse are searching for Ward after he escaped custody. Tripplet spots Ward at an airport. Ward realizes that he is being tracked. Coulson tells Tripplet to back off. Skye then show him pictures of a murder victim with the same symbols carved into her body. They later investigate the victim’s home where they see more symbols on the walls. Back at base, Skye confirmed that the victim was a SHIELD agent who died five years ago. Coulson orders Agent Stevens’ body to be brought back to the base where Simmons performs an autopsy. Ward continues to evade capture. He makes Bobbi Morse on the bus he is on and threatens to blow it up with the bomb he has strapped to him. He then leaves and hops on another bus. This time Hunter Lance is on board. Meanwhile Simmons discovers that the victim and the person who drew the symbols on her body were TAHITI patients. To find answers, Coulson enter the machine to recover his lost memories. Elsewhere, Hunter tracks Ward to a bar in Boston. Soon after he enters, a limo drives up to the bar and Bakshi exits. There are serious complications with Coulson when he enters the memory machine to find out the names of the remaining TAHITI patients. Skye shuts the machine down before Coulson does any real damage. She calls Melinda May who tells her to lock Coulson up. Skye finds that one patient is still alive named Lewis Thompson. She suggests that agents be sent after him. Coulson shoves Skye into the holding cell and goes after Thompson. Melinda and her team close in on Ward in the bar. They do not find him but the bodies of the men Ward was talking to along with Bakshi. Coulson finds Thompson at his home and tries to get him to remember about the symbols. However, he is knocked out by the last patient Sebastian. After taking Coulson and Thompson into the garage and tying them up, Sebastian removes his coat to show Coulson the tattoos of the symbols on his body.

So many questions, so few answers. Coulson’s carving art has gotten out of hand as he searches for answers to what it all means. His memories of the TAHITI project which he was in charge of have been erased and he needs to find out about the other patients and the symbols. His compulsions lead to him tossing Skye into the holding cell in order to go after a man named Thompson who may hold answers. Well, once he find Thompson and deals with Sebastian whose compulsive carving his lead him to kill the other patients for the same information, Coulson finally gets his answer to those damn symbols. Without realizing it, Thompson had made a blue print of a city with the symbols. What does this mean? This could suggest that the show may lead into the Inhumans arc and the city blue print is that of Attilan. It is called the Hidden Land for a reason, right?

Ward (Brett Dalton) is a dangerous man. How will the team deal with someone they used to call friend?

Grant Ward is the best at what he does and what he does ain’t pretty. It’s downright scary as hell. After escaping military custody, Ward has been on the run with Melinda May, Hunter Lance, Bobbi Morse and Antoine Tripplet on his tail. He easily exposes Tripplet who was following him in a bus station and Bobbi Morse on a bus even though he has never met her. Bobbi tries to detour Ward with her charm but Ward sees right through her like glass. He continues to lead May’s team along to a bar in Boston. The team enter the bar but Ward has once again sniffed them out a mile away and killed all the HYDRA agents except for Bakshi. Grant was depicted as being as excellent agent but his true skills are just frightening. Scarier still, he calls Bakshi’s phone and immediately calls out Skye when she answers. This shouldn’t be a surprise. He knows the team inside and out so he knew Coulson would have Skye hack into Bakshi’s phone. How will the team deal with a man who more dangerous than all of them combined? Scary thought, huh?
