The Fridge was S.H.I.E.L.D.'s most secure facility and prison, acting as the place where S.H.I.E.L.D. stored and held its most dangerous prisoners and acquired objects.

S.H.I.E.L.D seemed to reserve a holding in the Fridge for people or things that were either too dangerous to be allowed storage in any other facility, or people that had committed certain crimes and, as such, earned themselves a place in a top-level facility.

The Fridge had 100 floors, not including the basement which isn't on any blueprints, the only entrance was through the roof, and while the exact location of the facility is unknown, it was said in "Repairs" that it was a six hour flight from Utah.


"The Asset"Edit

After the events in Ian Quinn's Malta compound, S.H.I.E.L.D ordered the Gravitonium that Dr. Franklin Hall was working on to be stored in a vault in the Fridge. Unbeknownst to them, Hall still lived inside the Gravitonium, and became an accidental prisoner in the Fridge.


After calming Hannah Hutchins down in front of her home, Coulson and his team take her aboard the Bus, which would in turn take her to a holding cell in the Fridge. However, before they get to the facility, they are stopped and terrorized by a disembodied Tobias Ford, revealing that Hannah is not actually telekinetic.

"The Magical Place"Edit

After Vanchat is caught and taken by S.H.I.E.L.D, he's interrogated for help in locating the missing Agent Coulson. After helping S.H.I.E.L.D, the international criminal is taken into custody to the Fridge.

After the team finds where Coulson was being held and questioned about his resurrection, Raina is taken into S.H.I.E.L.D custody.


Ian Quinn, after being interrogated and severely beaten by May, is taken to the Fridge by Agents Garrett and Triplett.

"End Of The Beginning"Edit

Upon the discovery of Thomas Nash and the apparent Clairvoyant, Garrett mentions Raina as being detained and held in the Fridge.

"Turn, Turn, Turn"Edit

After the Battle for the Hub, Agent Hand and Ward together with two other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents flew Garrett to the Fridge, after him being revealed to be HYDRA. On their way to the Fridge, Ward is revealed also to be HYDRA, by killing Hand and the two other agents.


The Fridge is raided by HYDRA, led by Garrett and Ward freeing prisoners and taking all the items that were stored there, like everything that was ever ordered for the Slingshot, but instead was stored in the Fridge.

"Nothing Personal"Edit

In her phone conversation with Pepper, Maria Hill mentions the problem of Congressional inquiries, and explaining "Who or what is a Man-Thing?", suggesting that this character was to be found in the Fridge.
