Skye: A telekinetic? I thought they didn't exist.
Phil Coulson: We never verified one. That's why we're going to Batesville to conduct an index asset evaluation and intake.
Skye: Does that mean we talk to her and see if she has powers?
Phil Coulson: Basically.
Skye: Well that needs a better name. Less IRS, more... better. Something like "the welcome wagon".

A day in Hell for a lowly Particle Accelerator Worker
1 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

A woman "Hannah" - Played by _____?- a safety inspector for a particle accelerator, has been blamed for an accident that killed four people in a small Jesusy town. For a town full of Churchers, these people don't seem to grasp the concept of Forgiveness. And as one guy in a fast food store finds out, he should leave the woman alone, unless of course he wants to get pelted by cans of food and sundries that seem to be hitting him in the head by telekinesis.

As there is no full cast list for this episode yet, I can't say who this girl was, the one who was blamed. But when S H I E L D comes to find out what happened, the whole town is harassing the woman as if she were a one-woman Planned parenthood Clinic. In other words, acting like regular Jesusers. One of my old Pastors used to say it - Never be known as a people, for what you OPPOSE, only for the good you do, so this whole town gets an F-Minus in Christian Charity.

They get bombarded with police cars for their trouble and May has to use one of Fitz' knockout pellets.

The question is, has the woman gained some kind of Telekinetic Power from this accident? It originally seems like this is the case but the woman says not - she says it is a Demon sent to make trouble, because God is not protecting her anymore. And she blames herself for the accident.

Wrong on both counts, so - What IS causing circuits to be ripped out, Antenna to be busted on the S H I E L D Plane (which is getting better and better with the CGI)?

Fitz-Simmons, or at least the Simmons half, finds an answer to this - They had been using the Particle Accelerator to open Odin's broken Rainbow Bridge.

But the lowly woman never saw the first Thor movie and/or wasn't around New Mexico when some huge Destroyer wrecked the whole town, so she has to simplify the explanation for herself: She thinks God has abandoned her. But as much as she may think GOD no longer is protecting her - Someone, or some THING is.

At first it appears to be the wrong thing to do, for Coulson to have May talk this woman down. But in the end, it was the right decision.

And we get to hear how that "Cavalry" thing about May got started. But in this case, the story starts out big and ends small instead of the other way around.

Skye puts the religious aspect back into perspective, because for all of the blustering in The Old Testament Bible about the Wrath of God, these people forget the main tenet: The LOVE of God. And also why they call those testaments OLD and NEW, eh? And it was that exact aspect of God's Love - Not His Wrath, that solves this thing.
