Rising Tide

Miles Lydon, a member of the Rising Tide, was approached by Raina in Austin, convincing him to hack one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s data streams in exchange for one million dollars. Raina convinced Lydon by telling him he had a gift that should be shared, and masqueraded her true intentions telling him she was a fan of the Rising Tide, offering money that could be traced back to an eco-research laboratory studying centipedes.

Skye was able to locate the hacker, who unbeknownst to the rest of her team, was her former boyfriend Miles Lydon, a world renowned hacker, so the team set a course for Austin, but Skye warned Lydon about the intended capture.[1]

Arrest of Miles Lydon

Austin TX


Grant Ward located Miles Lydon near one of the cafés he used for his hacks in Austin, but Lydon realized he was being watched and tried to escape in a car. Phil Coulson pursued him in the team's SUV, losing him when Lydon activated a hack that allowed him to control all the traffic lights in the area. In the ensuing chaos, Lydon was able to escape and returned to his apartment.

Inside his apartment, Lydon was greeted by Skye, who confronted him for having hacked S.H.I.E.L.D. knowing she was inside the organization. Skye was angry at Lydon as he could have ruined everything she wanted to do, but Lydon replied that he had missed her, so they started to kiss passionately.


As Skye was about to leave, worrying that the team could find her if they find Lydon, as he was partially responsible of the kidnapping of Chan Ho Yin, Lydon and Skye commented how it felt to be inside S.H.I.E.L.D., wanting to know stories if she ever gets a leave permission.


Under Coulson's orders, Melinda May had been following Skye, as Coulson thought she was hiding something. Skye found May waiting inside the apartment, and prompted her to get dressed.

Coulson and the rest of the team arrived at the apartment, and although Skye tried to explain her reasons, Coulson did not let her speak and started interrogating her about how long had she been in contact with an active suspect, and she replied that she only warned Lydon because they mutually cared for each other, not because they were working together.

As Lydon did not cooperate while May was interrogating him, Coulson ordered to gather all the evidence and take both Lydon and Skye as prisoners.[1]

Chase of Grant Ward

Grant Ward having escaped from both federal custody and S.H.I.E.L.D.'s attempts to recapture him, misled Agent Bobbi Morse in Atlanta pretending to travel to Dallas.

Ward approached a young woman, Eliza, and her son Graham and befriended the mother and child, offering to help them with their bags and boarding their bus to Dallas, sitting with Morse, and revealing that he deduced she was a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Ward threatened Morse with detonating the explosive vest he was wearing, and abandoned the bus, leaving Morse behind and unable to follow him.

Morse was able to abandon the bus too, and, without further incidents, it finally departed to Dallas.[2]

Framework Network

With the knowledge of the Darkhold Holden Radcliffe and Aida began perfecting the Framework. Upon completion the code had become so powerful that it had to be processed on devices from all around the world. Part of the data was transmitted to San Antonio and Dallas.[4]

Weapons Acquisition

An Asgardian named Skurge, who was appointed the new gatekeeper of the Bifrost Bridge, used its power to visit Earth, where he landed in Texas. Skurge came across two assault rifles and brought them back with him to Asgard, naming the weapons "Des" and "Troy", citing that together, they would destroy, hence the name.[5] He actually used them for protection of people of Asgard at the time of crisis and thanks to it, the inhabitants were saved.
