It's A Thor Tie-In!

In the lab, Ward announces the location of Lorelei's new stronghold and says they're meeting a S.H.I.E.L.D. convoy there in ten minutes. Fitz, gesturing to the array of different-sized guns in front of him, says it'll be a chance to show off "these beauties" – they're basically the night-night gun 2.0, or "ICERs" as he calls them. He starts to say it stands for "Incapacitating Cartridge Emitting," but doesn't get further than that before Ward compliments him on how great they are, even adding with a back-slap that Fitz got rid of that pesky extra ounce he always hated. Fitz returns the back-slap (these two really can't stand and yet can't stop perpetrating them) and adds that they're three times as potent as their predecessors, as their run-in with the Centipede soldiers showed him they needed more power. Even anti-gun May figures one of these might come in handy: "When you're up against people who are being controlled, sometimes it's hard to distinguish friend from foe." That one will hit you with all the subtlety of, well, the new gun. Coulson and Sif then appear -- the latter gratuitously dropping down from above -- and we cut to the convoy approaching the bar. When the S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel disembark, they see some state troopers already on the scene, which Coulson approaches and asks if they've seen the suspect. The lead guy replies that he has, "and she's beautiful," before cocking his weapon and firing. Did I mention all the troopers are men? Another downside to lack of diversity in hiring.

The S.H.I.E.L.D. people take cover and start shooting it out with the troopers, and inside, Lorelei wonders what this fresh ruckus is, so Rooster explains that they've caught the attention of the law. Lorelei reminds him he swore to fight for her, and he says he'll stick to that but points out their enemies have a lot of firepower -- "they even got some Medieval Times chick -- she's got, like, a sword and everything." This is enough for Lorelei to breathe "Sif," and outside, the woman in question is deflecting bullets with her shield before, after Ward notes that they're a bit boxed in, Coulson asks "your Ladyship" if she might be able to provide them with some cover. With a nod, Sif cocks her leg and pushes a huge trailer forward with her foot, and with their improved position, the S.H.I.E.L.D. team is quickly able to incapacitate the people in front of them. Coulson calls for everyone to let Sif go in and take Lorelei, but he sends Ward around back when it seems like May would be the more prudent choice.
