It was touch and go there for a while, but fortunately Agent May is alive on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. thanks to Doctor Radcliffe and Simmons. May technically died for a minute on the table, I believe, which makes her encounters with ghostly figures even spookier. However, I'm more concerned about the fact that Simmons and May are likely about to meet Aida. Doctor Radcliffe's secrets won't be secret for long.
It seemed certain that May was being whisked off to a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. facility, never to be seen again — but she was simply off to Radcliffe's lab with Simmons right on her heels. That's the nature of the new S.H.I.E.L.D. I guess. The many walls of classified information make everything a little bit scarier. He was just the right kind of mad scientist for the job, and together they got to exorcising May's demons.
When the Watchdogs' blackout attack leaves them with no power and a flatlining May, (an excellent way to tie the two storylines together, if I might add) Radcliffe uses Aida's sustainable battery to zap May back to life. That's going to be a hard one to hide from someone like Simmons, and I don't think she or May is going to like the idea of Aida one bit. S.H.I.E.L.D. may not be in the public spotlight yet, but Radcliffe doesn't think the world is ready for his robot girlfriend. Even though she did help to save May's life and bring her back to her grumpy self, I think he's right.
