Episode 7 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., “Deals With Our Devils,” gave us a new version of the Ghost Rider, but in addition to the fresh serving of hell fire, we also saw Aida open the Darkhold. We’ve seen in previous episodes what happens to a human when exposed to the readings of the Darkhold, but Aida is no human.

The android used the Darkhold to create an inter-dimensional portal to pull Agent Fitz and Coulson out of what closely resembles the Astral Dimension from Doctor Strange. However, that was not the only thing she learned how to do.

In the episode’s last scene we saw Aida construct a human brain in a similar fashion to the the way she constructed the inter-dimensional portal -- by making hand gestures like the sorcerers in .

What if Aida has found a way to fully match her conscious capacity to that of a real human, even more, to surpass it?

Not only would she in essence become human, it’s entirely possible.

Remember in : Age of Ultron how Ultron wanted to transfer his mind to what ultimately became Vision’s synthetic body?

The same could be transpiring on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the twist could be that Aida will therefore become Jocasta, the female version of Ultron in the comics. Especially since the Darkhold has the tendency to corrupt its users.

In the comics, Jocasta was created by Ultron. Eventually she turned against her creator and sided with the Avengers.

She is essentially a female version of Ultron, but unlike her creator, she is not evil.

Aida is an LMD (Life Model Decoy) and in possession of the Darkhold, so it’s a possibility that she now wants to “evolve.”

Radcliffe and Fitz mentioned numerous times that since Aida is not human she would be immune to the effects of the Darkhold, but it’s quite possible that the book has the power to affect any type of life, whether it be human or artificial.

Will Aida become Jocasta or just a more evil version of herself? We can only speculate, but what do you think? Will she form part of 's legion of ? Let me know in the comments!

One thing about "Deals With Our Devils" though, we sure loved that super nod to Doctor Strange!
