Full Of Sound And Fury, Signifying Something You'll Never Hear The End Of

Fitz is telling Skye their name for the plane is "the bus," so May was not being as casual as it sounded just now; speaking of May, she announces that the wheels are going up in two minutes, so Fitz hurries Skye over to the only open bunk, which, he's more than pleased to point out, is right next to his. He then scatters, possibly to work on a pill that will allow him to be in the same room with Skye without babbling like a crazy person, and then Ward barely breaks stride as he hands off to Skye a copy of the plane's safety brochure, which describes it as the "CXD 23 Airborne Mobile Command Station." Yeah, "bus" will do, I think. Coulson then comes up so Skye can compliment the "sweet ride," and Coulson tells her it's such because he earned some points with Fury by getting stabbed through the heart with a Chitauri scepter. Being used by Fury as the Gipper with the Avengers probably didn't hurt either. We once again hear that Tahiti is a magical place, and this time Skye notices the repeat language, but Coulson moves her thoughts along by insisting Skye use a coaster for her bottle of water, and while the table doesn't look like it's got a finish on it that would be damaged, the point that Coulson is protective of the plane is taken. Coulson then informs Skye that they're off to Peru to determine if the 0-8-4 is useful or dangerous, noting that the last one they came across was pretty interesting. It'd be hilarious if Skye just sipped her water and ignored the obvious invitation, but of course she takes the bait and asks what it was, so Coulson replies, "A hammer." That is interesting, but like Netflix interesting, not IMAX interesting.

After the plane sets down in a runway in the Peruvian jungle, S.H.I.E.L.D. vehicles pull up at an "Incan archeological site" in Llactapata, May and Ward concern themselves with security measures while Fitz and Simmons chatter about the local fauna, with it once again being apparent that Simmons is made of somewhat sterner stuff than her male counterpart, not that fear of snakes was particularly embarrassing even before Indiana Jones. They then come across an Incan temple and are appropriately awed, while nearby, Skye tells Coulson that if the 0-8-4 is dangerous, they should inform people in the vicinity, as they already are dealing with anti-mining rebels and the Shining Path. Coulson, however, tells her that not only are they not going to do that, he may need her to spread disinformation to put the public on the wrong scent should word start to get out. She points out that's everything she stands against, and the maddening little smile returns as he's like, "Yep." Well, Ward, at least it's not just you.
