Lorelei and the man she has enchanted arrive at a biker stop where she enthralls the bikers. Skye is recovering from her injury. Simmons has been taking samples of Skye’s blood but cannot find any trace of the drug used to save her. An energy signature is detected and the team goes to investigate where they encounter Lady Sif. She warns them of approaching danger. Sif is taken to the Bus where she is surprised to see Coulson alive. Sif tells him that she is hunting Lorelei. At a bar, Lorelei has Rooster under her control and compels him to kill his wife when she arrives. At the Bus, Sif and Coulson determine that Lorelei is building an army. The team arrives at the bar where they encounter officers who are under Lorelei’s control. With Sif’s help, Coulson and Ward deal with the officers while Sif deals with Lorelei. The bikers Lorelei has under her spell keep Sif occupied while she escapes. Outside she encounters Ward and places him under her spell. Back on the Bus, Sif is upset that Lorelei has escaped and that the collar has been damaged. Coulson asks Fitz to fix it. Simmons confronts Coulson about sending the information she found about the drug to HQ. Coulson makes it clear that he doesn’t want her to do anything until he speaks with Nick Fury. Skye tracks Ward to Las Vegas and the team heads there only to discover that Sif and Ward are both gone. Sif and the team return to the Bus. Fitz takes Sif to the interrogation room to show her the repaired collar. He then locks her in the room. The Bus begins to take off with Ward and Lorelei in the cock pit. Ward opens the hatch to the room Sif is in where she is sucked out of the plane. Simmons and Skye are also cut off leaving May and Coulson to find a way to deal with Lorelei and Ward. May encounters the Asgardian sorceress and Ward. While May fights Ward, Lorelei goes to the interrogation room where she finds Sif’s sword. However, Sif is there and they battle. Elsewhere in the plane, Coulson manages to free Simmons where they attempt to take back the plane. Sif gets the better of Lorelei and places the collar on her neck, breaking her hold over Ward and Fitz. She then takes Lorelei back to Asgard. Later, Coulson tells Skye about what he saw in the bunker.

Jaimie Alexander reprise her role as Lady Sif, who has come to Earth to return Lorelei to Asgard.

The action gets put back into the show with the arrival of two Asgardians. First, Lorelei comes to Earth with the purpose of enslaving men to build an army. Marvel fans will know her older sister Amora, the Enchantress. Sif returns to stop Lorelei. Jaimie Alexander reprises her role to lend Coulson and his team a hand in dealing with Lorelei. The last we saw of Sif was in Thor: The Dark World. References to that movie are made when Sif explains that Lorelei escaped during the Dark Elves invasion of Asgard. Unlike Thor, Sif is pretty verse in using modern technology as she is able to operate the Bus’ computer with little problem. She’s a warrior but she does have a delicate side as she has a heartfelt talk with May after Ward is taken by Lorelei’s spell. This might also be because Sif views May as a fellow female warrior. Lorelei certainly lives up to her reputation as depicted in Marvel comics. She uses her powers of seduction to swoon men to her will and compel them to do her bidding. It was a needed spice to put superpowered characters back in the show which was starting to loose flavor. I don’t expect to see a whole lot of other super characters but a few more once in a while wouldn’t hurt.

Coulson is still struggling with what he saw in the bunker and the source of the drug that was used on him and Skye. The only person with the answers he wants is Nick Fury and he is inexplicably missing. Coulson is worried more than ever now that the alien drug in also in Skye. Simmons sees this as a miracle that should be shared but Coulson’s wariness of the drug and S.H.I.E.L.D. prevents him from allowing Simmons to inform HQ. With this, Coulson has become tired of S.H.I.E.L.D. and their games as well as Nick Fury and his secrets. He burns the rule book on this one. Coulson will get his answers and he will get them from Director Fury. However, there is one more roadblock. After listening on a bug planted in the infirmary, Melinda May informs an outside party about Coulson, simply telling them that, “He knows.” Who at S.H.I.E.L.D. is going through great lengths to keep Coulson in the dark about what was done to him? Was Melinda May told to keep watch over Coulson by Nick Fury and inform of every move he makes? And how will Coulson handle it when his search for answers leads to the ultimate betrayal?
