Agent Shade was one of a few agents that Victoria Hand trusted when the HYDRA Uprising started. She was present in the Hub when Hand ordered the death of Coulson's Team and John Garrett because she believed they were all HYDRA sleeper agents.
When Agent Hand found Agents Antoine Triplett and Jemma Simmons and offered them a choice of being S.H.I.E.L.D. agents or pledging their loyalty to HYDRA, Shade witnessed as Triplett grabbed Agent Chaimson and held him at gunpoint, declaring his loyalty to S.H.I.E.L.D.
