"Broken Promises" is the ninth episode of the fourth season of the ABC/Marvel series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the seventy-fifth episode overall.

Synopsis

Though Coulson and May are growing closer, Coulson remains unaware of the dark secret May is hiding beneath the surface. Meanwhile, AIDA is unrelenting in her search for the Darkhold.

Plot

Fitz and Radcliffe are sent to clear AIDA's memory of the Darkhold, but she reveals her new-found sentience and overpowers them. Taking control of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s systems, AIDA finds the Darkhold after Coulson gives its location to the May LMD (which doesn't know it isn't the real May). Fitz is able to take control of the systems before AIDA escapes, and Mack "kills" her. Radcliffe later laments about this to a new model of AIDA, as he had programmed the original's apparent sentience in an attempt to steal the Darkhold for himself. Senator Nadeer orders a group of Watchdogs to kill a now recovered Vijay, but he convinces her to spare him as his long terrigenesis appears not to have affected him. Simmons, having identified Vijay from photographs, Mace and Johnson arrive, as Vijay discovers he now has super-reflexes. Ellen convinces him to leave with her, but then shoots him in the stomach. Ellen asks the Watchdogs for reinforcements from "The Superior" as Vijay's body is dropped into the ocean and enveloped by another Terrigenesis cocoon.
