Hurmmm ... this was kind of a let down.
Firstly, we have Hive in the whole "death to those who fail me" villain-mode which really does not make sense, as is his attitude that his Inhuman followers are a disposable commodity. Admittedly, millennia spent alone on Maveth probably explains this behavior ... but if he is supposed to be some kind of general, he'd certainly ought to appreciate the notion of conservation of resources and the idea that things go wrong upon implementation of plans. Especially when you're improvising. As depicted, he is reduced to generic Evil-hood.
That said, I did like his origin story.
Daisy ... she really isn't listening to herself when she talks of "making them understand." That is borderline villainy right there because it is about coercion rather than open dialog ... but she's not in her right mind, so that might have something to do with it. Also, given that she is having discussions with Hive supports Mack's contention that she is not a mindless drone of Hive.
The Kree Reapers ... OK, I like the idea of a safeguard, but these guys, as depicted, were pathetic. Hardly what one would expect of an advanced civilization millennia old. Also, given the state of their experiments, wouldn't the old Kree have assigned Sentries to monitor the situation as opposed to relying on the Reapers to clean up after themselves?
Mack gets full points for trying, but, May and Coulson were right about trying to engage Daisy, and instead focus on Hive. Presumably, if you can neutralize Hive, this will free those who are under his influence.
And what the heck is up with Lincoln? Considering how he was introduced as this rather level-headed individual concerned about others, this season he's been portrayed as this Daisy-obsessed individual with poor impulse control.
All I all, I'm thinking this was a weak chapter in this story arc.
