** Yo-Yo told Mack "I can't watch this" and walked away while Flint was still crusting over. Therefore, she presumably started her run from a location out of sight of the Kree and the crowd and snapped back to that out-of-sight location with Flint after she grabbed him. Because she saw Flint starting to undergo Terrigenesis, she knew which kid she needed to grab and exactly where he was (i.e., she didn't need to see him to know where she needed to run). All she needed to do was time it right to grab him as the shell was cracking open, and even the timing didn't need to be perfect. She's fast enough not to be seen, so if she was too early and the shell was still solid, she could snap back without touching him and repeat until the shell cracked and she could grab him. If she was late, she could still have grabbed him after he fully emerged--people would have seen him emerge and then vanish, which could have been written off as manifestation of a teleportation power or something similar.

[[folder: How was Yo-Yo able to slip Flint away after his Terrigenesis?]]
* Thats not how her powers work. She always propels back to where she started!

*** Fair point, this Troper thought the Helicarrier was armed.

* Were the rumors true (from a now-removed thread on a British showbiz forum) that Alisha was killed off because her actress was joining the BBC soap Doctors for a few episodes and the BBC's ''SilentWitness'' in 2017, as well as other projects, or was this just fan speculation since I couldn't find anything on Google about this (assuming there's confidentiality agreements and such things)?

** Another explanation by WordofGod is that he fit the series better due with his relationship with Gabe. Family has always been a running theme of the show.
** 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.

** To answer the name question, S.H.I.E.L.D. was founded 3 years after WWII ended. Upon founding, it was likely designed as an American-oriented organization. Over the next 70 years, S.H.I.E.L.D. got big and spread across the globe, resulting in more world governments throwing their hats in as it were. By that point, the only people who likely cared about the original name (Peggy, Howard, and Chester) were either dead or retired, while everyone else saw no reason to change it.

** Also they didn't want to "lay waste" to places Hive was holed up in on Earth, not when he had innocents under his control that could still be potentially saved.

** Considering the events at Sokovia, the Helicarrier is now likely under the oversight of the Avengers or the UN, so they couldn't just take it back. Also, how exactly was the Helicarrier supposed to help against Hive? It's not an Insight carrier, it doesn't have guns to accurately shoot a target from sub-orbit, so how exactly would it help against the Kree soldiers or Hive himself? How would it even track them in the first place?
Now for 'real' SHIELD, that is a fair question, but then again, it seemed like most of their resources were on the Illiad, which the Inhumans attacked. It was mentioned at the beginning that Lincoln alone left several agents in the hospital, so who knows how many SHIELD personnel were left after that attack. Weaver might be out overseeing them all.

For all we know, it might've been dismantled after Sokovia. Also, how exactly was the Helicarrier supposed to help against Hive?
