“It’s all connected” has long been the Marvel motto. So it appears natural that “Agents of SHIELD” Season 3, episode 20 picks up after the events of “Captain America: Civil War.” And it looks like the superhero fight will affect all the Inhumans on the ABC drama.
[Spoiler warning: The winning team in “Captain America: Civil War” is revealed below.]
“With only two episodes left before SHIELD loses one of their own, Daisy’s (Chloe Bennet) prophecy ticks closer towards a major loss, as the aftermath of the events of ‘Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War’ force SHIELD to register the Inhumans,” the episode 20 synopsis says. It sounds like Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) is getting his way.
But will the Inhumans listen? Hive (Brett Dalton) doesn’t exactly seem like a law-abiding parasitic alien. Lincoln (Luke Mitchell), who remains with the good guys, will have to register, but he’ll still be helping. He might even be able to lure Daisy back in episode 20, titled “Emancipation.”
“He uses their connection to make Daisy believe that he really wants out,” Mitchell teased to Entertainment Weekly. “It’s not too big of a leap to make, because Lincoln is very much an outsider within SHIELD.”
The promotional video shows Lincoln telling Daisy via video chat that he just wants to be with her. It also shows Daisy looking extremely sick. In the previous episode, she told Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) to drain her blood to get the Kree DNA necessary for the experiment. So is it a side effect of the blood loss? Or could it be something else? Lincoln looked just as sickly when he tested the new cure for Hive’s mind control. Granted, it didn’t work on Lincoln, but maybe Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) made some improvements.

Also in the video is James (Axle Whitehead) with a chain. Comic book fans will likely be thrilled to see Hellfire using his weapon of choice.
“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” Season 3, episode 20 will air on ABC Tuesday, May 10, at 9 p.m. EDT.
