I noticed that line too.
I wonder if Skye is going to end up leaving SHIELD/joining the Inhumans. And perhaps that was sort of reasoning behind the writers putting in that line, to ensure a bit of distrust between Skye and Coulson/SHIELD.
No one is really going to now what happened or why, except Jiaying and Cal. (Rayna might have insight to one degree or another, but try to convince ANY party of that when absolutely no one shown to be important trusts you...)
Can Coulson convince Skye (assuming he gets the opportunity) that he has nothing to do with 'Gonzales shooting Jiaying? And further convince her that he has enough reign on SHIELD that that won't happen again? (good luck convincing her of the truth, when and if it is found out, unless it is from one of her parent's lips).
Whether she believes/knows the lies and/or the truth (or switches), she is also going to empathize with the Inhumans and her parents for plenty of reasons. If she didn't believe their own stories/history and/or thought better of SHIELD (even after HYDRA reveal), her own experiences since Puerto Rico will help put her more on their side after this point.
Heck, after Skye learns the truth, and/or just empathizing with her parents/Inhumans history before this event, might make her be more sympathetic to other amoral/immoral characters, like Ward and Kara.
What was Ward's plan? Was it basically to help Kara exact revenge on Bobbi? What are their plans after?
Who on SHIELD will in Skye's corner after this, especially if Skye splits? Coulson, maybe, thinking/knowing that she justifiably now either thinks the worse of him, or at the very least doesn't trust SHIELD as a whole. If May was sympathetic to Inhumans before Skye throwing Bahrain/the Cavalry story into May's face isn't going to help, and may actually make May more wary of Inhumans based on experience. Simmons they have shown all this season to have trouble with Inhumans. Out of the old crew, Fitz is the only one, other than Coulson, who could expected to be dependably in Skye's corner. I am not sure about the new characters introduced this season, as not sure if the Inhumans came up for all of them.... Bobbi you would expect to be in support of Skye at least, but Bobbi is getting her own show IIRC
And it will be complicated by any conflict between SHIELD and Inhumans, and Bobbi's understand of what happened to Gonzales. Maybe they'll cross each other's paths at some point
I also wonder, with this whole war cry from Jiayang, will that influence the Inhumans to abandon their measure and careful planned procedures for awakening dormant Inhuman genes in their population?
