SHIELD sends out a squad of Fury LMD's attempting to track down his would-be assassin. Instead of capturing the LMDs, The Druid's eggs have been destroying them. SHIELD arrives at the site of an exploded egg which was a trap. Fury battles the Druid one-on-one worried that his men will be targeted if he fails. Sitwell drives a fleet of armored eggs from hiding while all hell breaks loose. The captured Druid brags that his main HQ is undiscovered while Sitwell offers to uncover The Druid's true identity. Noticing how ambitious Sitwell is Fury voices concern about being replaced by a younger man.
