Hmmmm ... Mays (the new Director) really does need to develop some SOPs for keeping track of his personnel when he lends them out. As is, he loss a valuable asset, without any knowledge of what she was wanted for, nor what she might have been subjected to (that was carelessness, if not genuine negligence on his part, thus undermining the "Trust" he is hoping to instill in his people). He was lucky to get Simmons back unharmed.
As for her mission ... OK, she apparently was the only one to have the sense to try to talk to the cocooned subject, thus calming him. That the cocoon began to fracture, enabling her to peel away segments was fortuitous. Now, the question is, since the Senator's hubby(?) is emerging alive, and without visible change, will she alter her anti-inhuman agenda.
OK, apparently Coulson was either getting, or anticipating, resistance to his remaining the Head of SHIELD, so he "made the call" so as to save his team, and his organization. Which does dovetail with my own suppositions as to what was happening. That the team was kept in the dark as to his reasons ... well ... I'm thinking that Coulson didn't want to play out all the arguments that he had considered, but, in this instance, I think it would have been for the better if he had, thus eliminating the second-guessing and resentment surrounding his decision.
As for Ada, yeah, I'm wondering just whose brain she was rewiring. Was it her own? Was it the doctor's? Was it a theoretical construct to be manufactured later? Yeah, I have to agree with LOTS, it can' be good... but at least it's not Ultron (MODOK, maybe?).

Let me strive every moment of my life to make myself better and better, to the best of my ability, so that all may profit by it.
Let me think of the right and lend my assistance to all who may need it, with no regard for anything but justice.
Let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage.
Let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens, and my associates in everything I say and do.
Let me do right to all, and wrong no man. -- Doc Savage
