While still trying to come to terms with all of the evil acts he committed as the head of Hydra in the Framework -- such as being responsible for the death of SHIELD Director Jeffrey Mace (a.k.a. The Patriot), killing Agnes in cold-blood, and falling in love with Madame Hydra -- Fitz was whisked away by the newly-human Aida. But where did she take him?
In the clip above, we find the pair on a beach. Aida is enjoying what it feels like to be human, but Fitz is still a mess, blaming her for manipulating him to be a heartless and wicked version of himself.
"You're implying I had a choice?" she says to him. "I was a slave, programmed to make the adjustments that Radcliffe required. The world changed from there. All I tried to do was fit into it."
