On Maveth, the HYDRA team searches for signs of the Unnamed Inhuman. After walking a while, Fitz finds the hideout of Will Daniels, and, against the orders of Ward, jumps in. Fitz then meets Will, and tells him he was there to get him out. After trekking towards the portal, Will attacks some HYDRA members, and him and Fitz keep heading towards the portal. Fitz then discovers that "Will" was actually the Unnamed Inhuman, and had possessed Will's body after Will died saving Jemma. Coulson, who had caught up with them after taking Ward prisoner, fights Ward nearby where Fitz fights the Unnamed Inhuman. Fitz shoots a flare into the Inhuman's body, which then erupts into flames. Nearby, Coulson is fighting Ward, and eventually knocks him down. With the portal closing any second, Coulson kills Ward by crushing his ribs. Coulson and Fitz then escape through the portal. However, the Unnamed Inhuman in it's true form had possessed Ward's body and also made it through the portal, and met up with Gideon Malick.
- Clark Gregg stated that "this episode would have two shocking plot twists."
- The name of this episode is also the name of the planet where Jemma Simmons and Will were stranded. It derives from the Hebrew מָ֫וֶת, a term which appears over 150 times in the original of the Old Testament, signifying death as a state, a place of death and dying by violent means, among other related possibilities.
