Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The shot of adrenaline that Simmons gives Cal turns out to be what stabilizes his SuperSerum and fully transforms him into Mr. Hyde, after he'd been trying and failing to figure out what final ingredient he needed for a long time.

'''Fitz''': Footage of Bobbi. From the base. Before she left. Good idea. \\
'''Hunter''': You know, I am capable of finishing my own... \\
'''Fitz''': Sentences. Yes, you are. Sorry.

Added DiffLines:

* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Jiaying might have had a point about the Inhumans needing to be wary of S.H.I.E.L.D., but the way she jumps straight into "we need to kill all of S.H.I.E.L.D. and also any of our own people who don't agree with me" (with the reveal of her [[BadPowersBadPeople bad powers]] as icing on the cake) makes it obvious she needs to be stopped and effectively shelves the subtleties of the situation.


* NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow: One vial of the drugs Cal took, as Simmons notes, would put a normal person in the hospital. Given that he took ''three,'' they should've killed him already. In fact, they do eventually kill him, though Simmons manages to revive him -- [[BatmanGambit exactly as planned]].

* SuperSerum: Cal's serum is made of quite a few performance enhancers. The items that Simmons is able to conclusively identify are steroids, amphetamines, gorilla testosterone, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and peppermint]].

* FalseFlagOperation: Jiaying has her people steal a Quinjet and blow up the meeting room to convince her people to go to war and convince Skye that S.H.I.E.L.D. is evil. This also serves to destroy any evidence that she killed Gonzales.

* OffscreenTeleportation: During the fight for the ''Iliad'', there's a moment that plays like offscreen teleportation, when one of the defenders breaks free of Alisha and runs, then finds her waiting for him in the doorway. It's not actual teleportation, though; Alisha's power is MesACrowd.

* ThanatosGambit:
** Raina announces her intent to expose Jiaying, so Jiaying rather casually murders her. Skye happened to witness the entire event, and in so doing learns the truth about her mother. Raina knew this would happen, and was counting on it.
** Cal overdosed on his SuperSerum prior to being delivered to S.H.I.E.L.D. He knows he'll suffer heart failure eventually, but when he does they'll attempt to resuscitate him. The shot of adrenaline needed to do so is the last component of the serum, instantly reviving him and giving him superhuman strength.

it.


* BadPowersGoodPeople: Cal mentions that elders in her village used to voluntarily sacrifice themselves to Jiaying and she tried to convince them not to, every time.



* TouchOfDeath: Jiaying's regenerative powers are fueled by [[VampiricDraining draining the life]] out of other people. Before Whitehall, she only used it every few decades on an elderly volunteer, to make sure she'd stick around, and always hated it. After Whitehall, draining people didn't cause her to bat an eye. The village of people that Cal killed after her death were sacrificed to fuel her regeneration.

* CallForward: To ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', in that each faction wants peace, but also wants to eliminate the threat against them.
** On the S.H.I.E.L.D. side, we have Coulson who wants peace between the two, and most of "Real" S.H.I.E.L.D. who see the Inhumans as dangerous.
** On the Inhuman side is Jiaying and Cal, who know agencies like S.H.I.E.L.D. and HYDRA are never going to leave them alone, and therefore need to show their superiority; and Raina and Gordon, the former [[TheCassandra for seeing just how bad things will become by going down this road]] and the latter for knowing how dangerous a war will be to the innocent people he protects.
** Caught in the middle is Skye, who is an Inhuman and an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.; she wants there to be peace on both sides, but both sides want her to fight for them against the other.

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThatAudience: Kara, who helps torture Bobbi, declares that she will always "Stand with Ward", a reference to the segment of the fandom who puts [[DracoInLeatherPants Ward in leather pants]].
