Of course it was the monoliths ... that said, this was about the most plausible explanation to explain Sarge, and actually ties things back to season 5, quite nicely.
I loved Fitz's jab at his other self: "He wasn't the smart one."
Yeah, it's ridiculous that he should be jealous of himself, but it also makes sense since he didn't experience the adventures and successes his other self had, and now finds himself following in his own footsteps (kinda). Talk about life being unfair, and I think Deke still hasn't fully comprehended that this Fitz doesn't know him, despite Jemma supporting his claim to be Fitz's grandson.
Now, Izel ... OK ... being able to vanish into and co-opt some else's body ... that is truly a formidible ability. I do not know how one could counter that.
Then, Izel and Sarge ... it seems those two had the same goals until Phil stumbled through their dimension and now set them against each other.
Lastly, I liked the whole "I gotta secret" tactic to reveal who Izel was inhabiting ... that really worked. Albeit, upon her appearance, that they had nothing (not even an inkling) as to how to counter her abilities rather left them much like the dog that finally caught the speeding car.
I cannot wait to see how this all shakes out.

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
