Coulson and his team arrive at a base called the S.H.I.E.L.D Hub and are given an assignment by it's director Agent Victoria Hand. The assignment calls for Ward and Fitz to head to South Ossetia and disable a weapon device called the Overkill. Skye and Simmons try to find out more information about the mission, since they are not privy to details about the mission which has been classified as Level 8. Simmons manages to tranquilize Agent Jasper Sitwell who catches her in the act of hacking into top secret Level 8 files. Skye deduces from the information that there is no extraction team coming to pick up Ward and Fitz as Coulson learns about this upon catching her. After a talk with Victoria Hand, Coulson and the team proceed to rescue Ward and Fitz (who manage to disable the Overkill device) as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents move in on the compound. Coulson did find out that the person who brought Skye to the orphanage when she was young was an as-yet-unidentified S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent. In the ... Written by Alex Sabu

Did You Know?


It's revealed that Leo and Jemma have level 5 security clearances. See more »


Victoria Hand: I need a two-man team to sneak across the disputed border undetected, break into the separatist stronghold, and disable the weapon in the next 24 hours. And you have two people who fit my bill.
Melinda May: Not a problem.
Grant Ward: I was in Georgia during the incursion in '08. I still have contacts on the South Ossetian border.
Victoria Hand: And you'll have to use them. But we don't have specs on the device, so I need someone on the team who can identify and dismantle it on-site.
Grant Ward: Do you mean...?
Phil Coulson: I think she does.

The Most Dangerous Sandwich in the World
22 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's not really about Clearance - Clearance to know secrets. It's about trust.

After retrieving a secret message out of a S H I E L D agent's nose, the CGI Plane - Which is looking much better now - Is called back to the "Hub" - A place where all information is classified compartmentalized.

But Skye gets a little hung up outside of "Level 8" HQ. Ward and 1/2 of the Fitz-Twins (The Fitz part) get sent out on a classified op.

Too much rotten Danish fish sends Skye on a Hub-Hacking party with Jemma, and they find out that there is NO EXTRACTION plan for Ward and Fitz.

And Skye also comes across redacted docs regarding her past.

This is one mission where Ward's talents can't get them into Russia- But Fitz's can. But when they get in, nothing is as it seems. Ward saves Fitz from eating The Most Dangerous Sandwich in The World - Because Dogs would have found them by the smell of the pastrami!

The details of this Ep are not important, but what is, is that Coulson and May join Jemma and Skye in going Off-Grid to save Ward and Fitz

-Which is what S H I E L D wanted all along. So it was no Extremis threat, or Hydra laying out more underwear in secret Temples, it was just our RagTag pulling together.
