see you in sweden. i only get one shot. and it has to knock a person back, as well as out. which is why we're perfecting this little beauty. .45-caliber cartridges, semi-automatic. each mag... contains eight therapeutic rounds of dendrotoxin. in case you miss! or have multiple assailants. night-night pistol working in no time. okay? great. one thing -- we're not calling it that. [ gasps ] ah, told you. yes, we -- yes, we are. have you seen skye? not since weapons training. has she stopped saying "bang" when she pulls the trigger? mostly. now, if she can just learn the difference between the safety release and the magazine release,
skye: what's up, phil? i'd prefer you not call me "phil." okay, you're the boss...a.c. just missing my van a bit, taking a little me time. i want your help with something. [ inhales sharply ] hit me with it. you ever rob a bank? no. an armored car? nope. how about a casino? should i be offended? somebody's stealing millions of dollars in diamonds. they've found a way to crack the security systems. i want you to figure out their exploit. hmm. yesterday, 25 men, all military, were hired by one of the largest gem brokers in the world. they dressed the men in identical outfits, gave each one a randomly assigned briefcase, and sent them along 25 different routes here in stockholm. no one knew which briefcase contained the diamonds, but they were still stolen. tack. may: why the kabuki theater?
an armored car in milan, a safe in monte carlo, and now this -- over $30 mil total. each theft occurred despite heavy security. they sound like inside jobs. a lot of people share that opinion. you don't. cctv cameras catch any of the action? fitz-simmons is checking. the system went dark for an hour. they think it was hacked. it was the same thieves each time? yes, but it was just one thief -- a woman. eyewitnesses i.d. her? black, athletic build, late 20s, early 30s. so, you asked how she could have cracked the system. i have a pitch, but it's way outside the box. i live outside the box. there are people in the world with superpowers, right? what if this woman has esp or something? there are no credible studies that support precognition, telepathy, or extrasensory perception. okay, so science says no. but this woman knew impossible things. and why did she close her eyes? that's either random or totally important.
i'm gonna go play with my phone now. why does h.q. want us to investigate these heists? they don't. i picked this op. any luck? skye: yep, i'm getting full bars, which means if i was down here and 55 guys were in scary red masks, you know what i would do? instagram. it's amazing. every year, this part of our job gets easier. between facebook, instagram, and flickr, people are surveilling themselves. with many filters to choose from. i could do this pretty well when i was hacking for the rising tide, but you guys tag and search in ways the rest of us never dreamed of. i can run facial-recognition software on the photos, cross-reference them with our criminal databases. you don't have to. [ beep ] that's the thief.
you're certain? i should be. i trained her. man: i accept i'm not the deep sea fisherman i was. i accept i'm not out on the ocean wrestling marlin. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't go after anything with less than my best. so if i can go for something better than warfarin, eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin. plus, it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. that's what i wanted to know. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and, in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily. and it may take longer than usual
ediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis make increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i may not be going for the big one, but i'm still going for my best. and for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke, plus less major bleeding.
akela amador was a s.h.i.e.l.d. agent. seven years ago, she led a raid on one of vanchat's gulags. everyone believed that she and the two other agents on the mission were killed. i had my doubts. so i sent in a second team, just in case. they found a lot of carnage but couldn't confirm that any of it was amador -- left the possibility open.
about the heists. there are only a few women in the world who could pull off something so impossible. since you're on the bus, i thought it had to be her. swedish customs confirmed that amador left the country using an alias on a swedish passport. she flew into belarus, bought a train ticket to a town called zloda. i've also put together a list of individuals who could fence that many diamonds. [ beep ] there's been no contact or activity. maybe she's saving them for a rainy day, buying something special. let's focus on finding amador. i'll let h.q. know she's alive so they can assist with the manhunt. i'd like to hold off on that. until we know more. contact belarus authorities. find us a place to park the bus. put together a list of inns, hotels, and pensions near zloda. there can't be that many of them. we'll find her. i'm not so special after all. i'm not your first prot?g?.
hell, i'm not even a real, live s.h.i.e.l.d. agent yet. you two couldn't be more different. amador was smart, talented, fearless. wow, there's nothing in common. let me finish. she didn't play well with others, found little value in teamwork. i thought i could instill those qualities in her, so i pushed her... maybe too hard. don't blame yourself whatever path she went down, whatever weird stuff she got into, it's on her. the agreement was to come alone.
when i said $30 million, i never thought anybody would -- if it fails, i will find you. it will access all the levels, as promised. [ sighs ] but once you're inside, do you have a plan? it'll come to me. [ birds chirping ] simmons: how exciting. i've dreamed of visiting zloda since i was a schoolgirl. zloda, belarus? a dream come true? really? it's the birthplace of nobel physicist zhores alferov. i mean, technically, he's from vitebsk, but that's less than an hour from here, and i'm a bit disappointed that you didn't know that. well, no, of course i know who that is, father of heterostructure transistors, thank you very much. we're all well aware of that.
first and only other time in the field wasn't exactly a picnic, was it? you guys are only here to search for amador electronically. you won't even need to leave the van. may: bus to short bus. go for short bus. next time, i'll decide what we call ourselves, okay? h.q. has requested a status update. what'd you tell them? that we're tracking a potential suspect -- nothing more. i owe you one. more like three. if amador's here, she'll have to contact her buyer. encrypted e-mails, anomalous broadcast signatures. call us if you find anything that indicates her presence. maintain radio silence unless you really need help. well, what exactly defines needing help?! [ door slams ] i can only imagine how painful this must be for you, sir -- betrayed by someone you trained and believed in. we don't have all the facts yet. true, but i have to assume the worst -- that amador sold out the other two agents on her mission. wonder what she got in exchange.
i'm not gonna assume anything. there's barely electricity in this town. can't be too hard to find our mystery woman. unless she already knows we're here. no, you're not suggesting some sort of precognition or telepathy because... i know -- it doesn't exist. and not long ago, i would have dumped esp in the "aliens and portals are for crazy people" pile. but now... found a server. [ beeping ] [ cellphone ringing ] spacibo. did you locate amador? skye: what? , not yet. but we've found a broadcast with some weird signal encrypted into it. [ laughter ] you think amador might be communicating on that signal? maybe, but i called with an equally pressing question for you, my s.o. what are we supposed to do if we have to pee? you broke protocol because you need a bathroom break? it was a really, really long drive, and everyone's nervous. there's a container in the bottom of the blue chest. bottom of the blue chest. [ chatter ]
not the water bottle? that's the one. did you never learn the thing where boy parts and girl parts are different, and our parts aren't penises? agent coulson and i are trying to find a dangerous criminal. if there's nothing else pressing... well, listen, fitz wants to know if you packed any snacks. yeah, i'm feeling a bit peckish. uh...hello? he-- [ static ] he hung up. dobryy den. good afternoon. i'm agent coulson. this is agent ward. we're looking for this young woman. oh, she's my angel. why do you say that? she has gift -- knows things. she told me to go to doctor. he found a tumor. i'm having surgery next week. this girl saved me. [ static, chatter ] fitz: i can't stabilize it.
skye: mirror it over. i have a couple of rising tide exploits that might work. [ laughter ] [ beeping ] [ keys clacking ] one last thing. ta-da, and you're welcome. it's very important that we talk with her. with her gift, i'm sure she knows you're coming. fitz: russian tv's kind of boring. ooks a bit like our van. what are we looking at? us. [ crashing ] let's get out of here!
call coulson. get the gun. it's her. safety off. [ gun clicks ] bang? i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine,
your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for
ward: sir, amador attacked you and your people. whatever regard you hold for her isn't reciprocated. she just kicked us in the teeth. how's the team? rattled. no broken bones. we're lucky she just knocked the van over so she could get away. probably take awhile for our folks to refocus. n recover the data signature of that encrypted broadcast. i don't understand it yet, but that's how she was watching us. give me an hour. maybe we can start watching back. something's wrong. it's the same feed that was watching us in the van. uh, put it on the big monitor. m-maybe the lens broke when the van rammed us.
it's a mirror. are we recording this? uh... [ beep ] we are now. fitz: whoa. how are we seeing this? where's the camera? it's her eye. she's the camera. it switches to backscatter when she closes her eyes. you're a robot. can you do that? who has tech like this? we don't -- not like this. that's not small and internal. that's at least a decade ahead of anything i've seen. though, now that i've seen it, i could maybe approximate it -- the backscatter x-ray, a micro-transceiver that somehow doesn't fry her brain, an internal power source... all miniaturized. honestly, it's... that's genius. ...genius.
