Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 4
Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire
Simmons goes apartment hunting and finds an injured Daisy waiting for her. Coulson visits Robbie's uncle, Eli, in prison to ask him about his work at Momentum Alternative Energy Labs.
Radcliffe introduces Aida to a recovering May as his assistant. Radcliffe tells May he needs her for tests so that he and Fitz can develop a cure for the "ghosts."
Daisy gives Simmons a list of Inhuman identities and coordinates taken from the Watchdogs. She asks Simmons for help figuring out how the information was hacked but Simmons refuses -- until Daisy pulls a gun on her.
Eli refuses to give Coulson information. Outside the prison, Mack recognizes Robbie's car, and they take off after him in Coulson's beloved Lola. The chase ends Robbie crashes into the waiting -- and invisible -- Quinjet.
Fitz panics when he learns Radcliffe has let May meet Aida, but Radcliffe describes it as the "ultimate Turing test" for Aida.
Simmons and Daisy discover that an encrypted third party has been hacking into the S.H.I.E.L.D.-issued wristwatches the Inhumans wear and is using them to track the Inhumans. They discover that their old acquaintance James is next on the hacker's list and go to warn him.
Coulson questions Robbie about his powers. Simmons and Daisy find James working at a fireworks store and tell him to remove the wristwatch. Daisy tries to convince James to work with her.
Coulson lets Robbie out of captivity and asks him to help them get answers out of Eli. Eli identifies members of the Momentum Labs team, including Lucy, for Robbie. He tells Robbie he was helping them build a quantum particle generator. He thinks the team is dead, but Coulson and Mack know they are now "ghosts." Eli tells Robbie the team was looking for a book -- a book he calls evil. Lucy wakes up Joseph Bauer, lying in a coma in the hospital, and demands to know where the book is.
Aida questions Radcliffe about why her identity as a Life Model Decoy is being kept secret from May. James leads Daisy and Simmons into a trap for the Watchdogs; he is helping them hunt and kill Inhumans, as he now hates being one. Robbie shows up and faces off with James.
The fireworks store ignites and Robbie helps S.H.I.E.L.D. take James captive. Daisy thanks Coulson for showing up and saving her life. Coulson tells Daisy and Robbie that there is a more pressing threat than the Watchdogs -- the evil book Eli spoke about, called the Darkhold. He convinces Daisy and Robbie to help S.H.I.E.L.D. track it down.
Coulson comes to pick up May from Radcliffe. Aida introduces herself to Coulson, who doesn't recognize her as a Life Model Decoy -- but Simmons does.
