At the beginning of The Things We Bury, this week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. viewers learn quite a lot about HYDRA head, Whitehall. He has got a cruel streak, about a mile wide from the look of things although fans of the MARVEL verse will know that already. The time is 1945 and a Chinese woman brought in and forced to make contact with the obelisk survives. The HYDRA leader has already shown his obvious maliciousness when he tells the male prisoner moments earlier that it is okay to touch the artifact he has searched for so long. He will soon show that this streak is a constant in his personality.
