Daisy's Donating Kree Blood On 'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' But May Be Resisting Hive's Evil Inhuman Plan
Why do I get the feeling that the events of Captain America: Civil War are going to come as a complete shock to Director Coulson and his team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents? They're clearly in their own world right now. The Kree arrived, and now Daisy is draining her blood on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to further Hive's plan in the name of evil science and Inhuman domination. No big deal, right?
So, even if I'm not sure whether or not Daisy is a double agent, I do think that I finally understand Hive's endgame. First, he wants to turn the whole human race into Inhumans. Then, he's going to infect them with the same parasite that's controlling Daisy and the others. It's a lot like the Myriad subplot from CBS' Supergirl this season — but at least on that series, the aliens wanted to use mind control to end pollution, or something. Hive's not an environmentalist, he's just greedy. After a few "Failed Experiments" (which the episode title partially referred to) and a failed attempt to get Kree blood to complete these experiments, Daisy offered herself up to be drained. She has, if you recall, Kree blood running through her own veins.
During one of the episode's fight scenes, Daisy came face to face with Mack. He called her on what he and Coulson believed to be a cry for help — letting them find her on facial recognition software she developted. However, she rebuffed him just as she'd sent Fitz away. Even Hive doubted her commitment to Sparkle Motion at points.
This season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. may seem a bit chaotic, and Zombie Ward's convoluted plan doesn't help, but it is getting at what this show is all about. The team is being tested as a team in new and different ways. Daisy may be working alongside a mass murderer, but she's making excellent points about the influence that S.H.I.E.L.D. has had on her. From one perspective, at least. She is forgetting that Coulson, May, Mack, Simmons, and Fitz are her family. Their extreme situation goes a little bit beyond the idea of a work/life balance or integration.
Does Daisy really want out? If so, it might be a little too late for S.H.I.E.L.D.'s own personal Bucky Barnes. Not only does this blood transfusion sound dangerous, but the whole plan to may everyone Inhuman and part of the Hive is definitely not going to end well.
