The missions of the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. In the second season, following the destruction of S.H.I.E.L.D., now-Director Coulson and his team look to restore trust from the government and public while dealing with Hydra, a faction of anti-superhuman S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, and the newly revealed Inhumans (who possess special abilities).
Some fans think Jiaying is still alive due to her healing powers. No hard evidence has been seen.
Calvin knew, deep down, that Jiayang had lost her sanity and was a “monster”.
Possibly an inhuman MCU re-imagining of the classic X-Men villainess Selene, with the same life draining powers that have greatly extended their lives, both having whole tribes sacrificed to them, position as a leader of a secret group of powered individuals, and finally both being the mother of heroines (Magma & Quake) with earthquake/earth-related powers.
Jiaying: It’s going to be okay, beautiful; I’ll show you the way.
Jiaying: Your gift is quite destructive but look at the music you can make.
Jiaying: It’s not a lesson, this is personal, a debt I owe to your father and if you trust me in this I will be eternally grateful.
Skye: He’s a monster.
Jiaying: He was good once, Cal lost himself to a promise he made me out of love, now he’s made good.
Skye: That shouldn’t mean all is forgiven.
Jiaying: Sometimes as leader I have to do things I would rather not do.
“The Frenemy of My Enemy”
Jiaying: S.H.I.E.L.D. wants us to be afraid, to fracture. But we’re all tied together, a history that goes back thousands of years. They will not take that away from us.
Jiaying: How dare you compare your scars to mine? You’re nothing like me, like us. Whitehall cut me to pieces. He ripped out my organs and stuffed them in jars! I will never let that happen to my daughter. To any of my people.
Jiaying: I built this community in the middle of nowhere so we would be left in peace. Yet, S.H.I.E.L.D. found us. No matter where we go or what we do, they will hunt us down. If we are to survive, S.H.I.E.L.D. must be destroyed.
Skye: What are you planning?
Jiaying: I am planning for our future, your future.
“S.O.S. Part 1”
Jiaying: Everything I will do is for the protection of our people.
Skye: You killed Gonzales. You want a war.
Jiaying: War was inevitable. I struck first so we would have the advantage.
“S.O.S. Part 1”
(About Jiaying) Before Whitehall, an elder would sacrifice themselves every few decades so she could live on, carry on tradition. She would weep, scream, beg them not to, she had a good heart Phil, she did, it was just, torn out.
“S.O.S. Part 2”
Jiaying: This war started decades ago when S.H.I.E.L.D. was founded to guard the world against people like us, and it will never end. But you and I together, think of how powerful we could be. We could launch a revolution, side by side.
Skye: I don’t want your revolution, because this isn’t about protecting me or your people, this is about hate!
