It appears that Quinn has discovered Gravitonium a rare element that can control the force of gravity.
Coulson and his team are on the mission to retrieve Hall without causing an international incident. None of the official team can enter Quinn’s compound, so Skye volunteers to go in undercover. Skye opens up to Ward about her past during some quick training, before she is sent into the field. Skye gets in and gains access to the compound allowing Coulson and Ward to sneak in and get to Hall.
