Gordon was told he was Inhuman at an early age and spent years training with Jiaying to prepare him for what he would become.
In 1983, when Gordon was a teenager, he was allowed to go through terrigenesis which took away eyes and gave him the power to teleport. At first Gordon couldn't control his power and he would teleport randomly, but Jiaying taught him to control it.
At the end of "What They Become", Gordon notices his Diviner is glowing and then makes a call to an unknown woman. He asks the woman if the same thing is happening with her Diviner and says "there's someone new" and to tell the others "I'm on it."
In "Aftershocks", Raina tries to kill herself by walking into traffic when a S.H.I.E.L.D. team arrives to capture her. Before they can, however, Gordon teleports in and then immediately teleports out with Raina.
Taking Calvin Zabo Edit
In "One of Us", Calvin Zabo attacks a high school in Manitowoc, Wisconsin in order lure in Coulson. During a stand-off between Cal and S.H.I.E.L.D., Gordon suddenly teleports in and immediately teleports out with Cal.
Gordon, later, visits Cal inside the room he's now imprisoned in and when Cal asks him why he's her Gordon simply says "you were making too much noise."
Teaching Skye and Raina Control Edit
In "One Door Closes", Gordon visits Skye and tells her he's inhuman like her. Gordon offers to take Skye to a place where she'll be safe and can learn more about her powers. However, Skye hesitates to go with Gordon and Gordon tells her he'll be back when she's ready to leave.
Later, Gonzales sends a team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to capture Skye and she accidentally creates a giant shock wave which injures several S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. Horrified at what she did, Skye then asks Gordon for help and he suddenly teleports in and then immediately teleports out with Skye.
In "Afterlife", while Lincoln is giving Skye a tour of Afterlife, they cross paths with Gordon and Skye asks him where Cal and Raina are, but Gordon tells Skye he can't divulge that information and he can't tell her where she is. Also, Skye asks him if he could tell her friends she's alright, but Gordon says he'd have to get permission from the inhuman elders for that and they'd probably say no.
Gordon, then, visits Cal who is still imprisoned. Cal asks Gordon is he can see Skye, but Gordon says no as he has no self-control and his recklessness has put everything they've built at risk. Gordon, also, comments how Cal is lucky they haven't killed him yet.
In "Melinda", Raina begs Gordon to let her leave, but Gordon explains to her that it's too dangerous and their care is the best thing for her. Gordon encourages Raina not to focus so much on her physical change that she never learns what her gift is. Gordon, also, tells her that people like them have to live differently, but that doesn't mean it can't be an amazing world.
In "The Frenemy of My Enemy", Gordon teleports Skye and Cal to Milwaukee so Skye can say goodbye to her father and Gordon tells Skye he'll be back later to pick her up.
Later, Gordon talks to Jiaying saying he dropped an inhuman named Ethan off to go on a camping trip, but when he went to pick him up Ethan wasn't at the rendezvous spot. It's, later, revealed Hydra took Ethan, experimented on him, and eventually killed him when they realized Ethan wasn't Gordon.
At Cal's old clinic, a team of Hydra agents arrive looking for Gordon and capture Lincoln, who was there to protect Skye from Cal. Before Hydra can capture Skye as well, Gordon teleports in and just before he teleports out Cal tackles him causing Cal to be teleported with them.
In "The Dirty Half Dozen", Gordon drops Cal and Skye off at Afterlife and then immediately teleports back to Milwaukee to get Lincoln. However, Hydra's already taken Lincoln away and Gordon is almost killed by Hydra before teleporting back.
Later, Skye begs Gordon to take her to Lincoln, but Gordon said he can't as Hydra could track him and learn where Afterlife is. However, Raina then intervenes and says she had a dream where she saw Skye saving Lincoln. Skye then convinces Gordon to take her to S.H.I.E.L.D. where they help her rescue Lincoln.
War with S.H.I.E.L.D. Edit
In "Scars", Gordon thanks Raina for her warning about Ultron and asks her if she's had anymore visions. Raina then tells Gordon she recently had a vision of a giant stone that wasn't a stone that had holes carved into it. Gordon immediately realized Raina was talking about the Monolith and took Raina to see Jiaying. Jiaying explained to Raina that the Monolith was created by the Kree and it could destroy all inhumans. Gordons says that because the Monolith is Kree it'd be easier for him to "tether" to, but he'd only be able to get in the general vicinity of it. Raina volunteers to go with Gorodon to see if what they find matches her vision.
Gordon teleports them both aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. ship, The Iliad, and Raina mentions she saw a red door in her vision. As they search, Hunter sees them and pulls an alarm. As they're both running away, Raina sees the red door and Gordon teleports them both in the room. There they both see the Monolith inside a glass case and Gordon teleports out with Raina when May and Bobbi enter the room. Back at Afterlife, Gordon tells Jiaying they've confirmed S.H.I.E.L.D. has the Monolith.
Later, Raina rushes to tell Gordon that she's had another vision of S.H.I.E.L.D. quinjets dropping bombs on Afterlife. Gordon wants to tell Jiaying, but Raina convinces him not to as the destruction starts after Jiaying meets with Gonzales. Gordon, then, leaves to pick up Lincoln and Skye.
Gordon betrays Raina by telling Jiaying what she said. This leads to Jiaying imprisoning Raina and her meeting with Gonzales herself.
In "S.O.S. Part 1", Gordon and another inhuman steal a S.H.I.E.L.D. quinjet and fired two of its' missiles at Afterlife, just like Raina saw in her vision. It's later revealed, Gordon did this under orders from Jiaying in order to provoke a war with S.H.I.E.L.D.
Later, Gordon informs Jiaying that he's evacuated everyone that needs protection from Afterlife. Also, Gordon brought her a captured S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who Jiaying then drains the life out of in order to heal her wounds.
Gordon teleports Lincoln, Alisha, and several other inhumans aboard The Iliad and together they capture the ship and imprison its' crew.
In "S.O.S. Part 2", Gordon locks Skye in the ship's brig and places special inhibitor bracelets on her to prevent her from using her powers.
Jiaying gives Gordon a crate full of terrigen crystals and tells him to break them and release the mist into the ship's ventilation system which will kill all humans aboard. Gordon is about the break the crystals when Mack arrives and a fight ensues. However, with Gordon's power, Mack quickly realizes it's impossible to hit Gordon. Coulson and Fitz then arrive and Fitz brings a "quantum-field disruptor" which prevents Gordon from teleporting.
Coulson, Fitz, and Mack begin assaulting Gordon, but then Fitz's machine stops working and Gordon teleports again. Gordon tries to teleport behind Fitz, but he accidentally rematerializes with a pipe Fitz was holding penetrating his body. Gordon then falls to the floor dead.
