** Also Kree blood is ''not'' all that's necessary to turn a human into a latent Inhuman, as far as we know. Daisy transformed because she was the daughter of an Inhuman and therefore had the Inhuman gene/Kree Blood in her system from the start. Meanwhile Coulson and Garret were injected with Kree Blood while not being latent Inhumans, hence the reason why they began to go crazy and write on the walls. They weren't compatible with the blood, while Daisy, being Inhuman, was. So when it came time for the Obelisk, it read Daisy as Inhuman and Coulson as human with incompatible Kree Blood in his system and began to petrify him like the others.

** ''Winter Soldier'' also revealed that HYDRA had penetrated the civilian government(s). It's entirely possible that HYDRA's deep-cover agents were influential enough to add a push for S.H.I.E.L.D. to be labeled a terrorist organization, just to make things more difficult for their enemy, if not destroy it totally.
** Real world government do that all the time. When you want to wage a war against an group of persons and not call it a war, you label them "terrorists" (whether they are doing any terrorist activities or not) and say you fight terrorism. It may just be a reference to that. Besides, it is politically much more comfortable for world leaders to say "They are terrorists and we are fighting them" than "They are an international spying agency which we let operate for years with almost no control or supervision, and now most of their assets and technology have been taken over by ''real'' terrorists by our fault."

** Its shown in the most recent episode of this writing that it seems to be the case; Shockley seems aware of the science behind the Inhumans but considers them a plague on the human gene pool that needs to be wiped out (much like a White Supremacist), while Nadeer seems to cling the idea that its something that infects people and that she personally could never be an Inhuman, regardless of her brother's condition [[spoiler: which fortunately for her, turns out she ''didn't'' get the same gene passed onto her, which ''would'' prove her point...if she didn't get blown up immediately after]].

** More specifically, when LMD-Radcliffe reveals the quantum brains have all the same information as the original ones, Fitz and Simmons realize he had to have scanned those brains for that to be possible, and Simmons remembers when she saw him scan May's.

** In a previous episode. When May was "infected" by the ghosts in the beginning of the season the team brought her to Radcliffe's for treatment.

[[folder: Simmons Learning About The LMD May]]
*Simmons realizes in Episode 4x12 the truth about the LMD May when she saw a "brain" designed by Aida. Did she see Aida do that offscreen or did it happen in a scene in a previous episode and I just missed it?

** SHIELD was caught red handed trying to illegally spy on a US senator. That's a big deal, so the media and the other senators are going to be more focused on that. Nadeer then can claim she had an anonymous tip before the hearing about what SHIELD was planning to do, that would be hard to disprove and would maintain her public image as a law abiding senator.

[[folder: Hauled in front of the Sokovia Accords]]
* When Team Coulson are caught trying to bug Nadeer, the way she announces it to the media is as it is happening. Live. Why didn't anyone call her out? I mean, how could she know the exact time they would try and infiltrate her office and subsequently be able to report on it, unless she had done some spying of her own. For the record, I'm pretty sure wiretapping a spy organisation like SHIELD isn't exactly legal...

** The effect for a human getting petrified and an inhuman getting cocooned is very different. Find a clip of Daisy's transformation on [=YouTube=] and compare her to Trip. Inhumans get ''covered'', humans ''become stone''. Coulson's hand was obviously the latter.



*** Fury most likely was part of it and the idea that they are liquidating HYDRA goods and probably cannibalizing them as well isn't unlikely. Whatever way they are currently funding themselves is likely shady as hell or at least looks shady and part of bringing S.H.E.I.L.D. back into official existence means that everything needs to look like it's legal and proper.

* Also personally, the car is way more badass than the motorcycle. Motorcycle feels like its trying too hard to be cool, when a badass muscle car is just as awesome and has the advantage of being slightly less conspicuous.

* Why doesn't SHIELD record some documentaries explaining the nature of Inhumans? It might do some good to have an official explanation out there letting the world know that the Inhumans are not connected to the Chitauri, that their nature is not a disease, and that many of the people who are turning into Inhumans didn't know they were latent Inhumans until Terrigenesis happened. Having two famous Inhumans on staff [[spoiler:though one of them isn't really Inhuman]] to host would give them an air of credibility, and Daisy being able to honestly explain that she found her initial experiences with her powers terrifying to the point where she once had to sedate herself to get them under control would help people understand all the newly made Inhumans suffering from PowerIncontinence.
* As a bonus, the explanation that being a latent Inhuman is a genetic trait would undermine Nadeer's influence with the Watchdogs, as they all know her brother was Inhuman, and thus she might be a latent one as well.
* Its possible that such information is out there publicly and groups like the Watchdogs treat it the same way as some groups of the Anti-Vax Movement treat the ample amount of evidence about the safety of Vaccines, just something that 'Big Government' and 'Corrupt SHIELD' are selling to the masses while hiding the 'truth' from the public.
