Review, Yet More Wild Speculation, Agents of Shield Episode Five 'The Girl In The Flower Dress' For Your Old School Super Hero Campaign

Photo: This week, a mysterious new foe takes center stage. Who is the girl in the flower dress?
Don't go anywhere with this woman!
Agents are to approach her with extreme caution. 

In “Girl In The Flower Dress,” an elusive girl in a flower dress may hold the key to the mystery that brings Coulson and team to Asia to rescue a young man with an unusual and dangerous power. Meanwhile, Skye has a secret that jeopardizes her relationship with the team right when they need her most.

Sky really wasn't the lady to watch in tonight's episode. Instead, we get a glimpse into the world of a possible Hydra, A.I.M. or Centipede outfit who are trying to produce super soldiers. The Earth/Alien hybrid technology used by this outfit is given center stage and Skye is revealed to have secrets all of her own. 
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons.
Guest starring are Louis Ozawa Changchien as Chan Ho Yin; Ruth Negga as Raina; Austin Nichols as Miles Lydon, Shannon Lucio as Debbie, Tzi Ma as Agent Kwan, Cullen Douglas as Po.
“Girl In The Flower Dress” was written by Brent Fletcher and directed by Jesse Bochco. The “Girl In The Flower Dress” episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” airs on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 from 8:00-9:00 PM ET on ABC.
Agents of SHIEDL Girl In The Flower Dress
Chan Ho Yin was the real star of the show subtly floating through the episode kidnapping, studying, and offing anyone who got in her way. Very nice performance for an over the top sexy lady in a flower dress. I'd swear that this lady had some sort of telepathic or empathic abilities because no one in their right mind would have shown this girl anything but the door. 
This is the same organization that came up with the centipede technology in episode one and now they've found a way of stabilizing it.
Remember the centipede technology from the very first episode  of Agents of Shield?
The Centipede is an item that gives the user theExtremis powers. The Centipede may give a person superhuman abilities, but it also causes them to slowly lose their minds and eventually burst in anger due to a volatile substance known as Extremis. Other components include the injection methods of the Super Soldier Serum, technology from the Chitauri for injection, and Gamma Radiation. Described by Jemma Simmons as "all of the ways of getting superpowers put in a blender".
Well it looks like A.I.M. is behind it all!

When You Wish Upon An Extremis Star 

A lot's happened, Tony, but I'm close. Extremis is practically stable."
"I'm telling you it isn't! I'm on the street, people are going 'bang', they're painting the walls. Maya, you're kidding yourself."
"Then help me fix it."
Maya Hansen and Tony Stark

Way back in 1999 as shown in Iron Man three the foundation for Extremis was laid down 
According To The Marvel Movie Wiki: 
Extremis was created by Maya Hansen in 1999. Maya and Aldrich Killian upgraded it thanks to Advanced Idea Mechanics providing funding for it to begin experimental testing. A.I.M. recruited amputees and other disabled people as test subjects, most notably the victims of military ops. Extremis cured their disabilities after which they were convinced to work for A.I.M. as assassins and soldiers.
I think that what we're looking at is the rise of a new branch of A.I.M. coupled with possible Hydra connections. 
 What we're possibly looking at is the return or off shoot of this man.
Major spoilers if you haven't seen Iron Man Three! 
Which bounces the ball squarely in the court of both the Iron man three movie and all of the Marvel Movies back yards once again. 

In the non-canonical Iron Man 3 video game it is revealed that Killian's consciousness had been 'downloaded' by A.I.M. prior to his physical death and uploaded into a new, enhanced form: M.O.D.O.K
I have evolved far beyond what I once was. Suffice it to say, you took everything from me. I shall do the same to you."
―M.O.D.O.K. to Iron Man
Using The 'Girl In The Flower Dress' For Your Old School Super Heroes Campaign

Tonight's episode was solid in a way. It showed the ins and outs of the dirty little way in which shadow organizations are willing to use anyone who even shows the slightest hint of super powers.
The fact is tonight's episode was never about 'Scorch' and more about the creation of a dangerous new bio weapon/drug. A drug capable of creating hordes of super soldiers who can not only take orders but whose judgement is impaired to the point of becoming those wonderful second stringer super villains which Marvel And DC loves to sick on the heroes.
There's one book that has all of the secrets and allows a DM to create a campaign with a black background of deceit and depravity.
 This one!

 Every dirty little secret is right in this book along with write ups for A.I.M., The Mandarin, and Hydra.
