Eileen has transformed into the menace known as Darkstream. After fleeing the Baxter Building from a failed attempt to cure her, Darkstream returns to to Rexburg, Idaho, where she was 'born', and begins to burn it to the ground. With S.H.I.E.L.D unable to stop her, Josh and Acacia fly in to save to save the day. When appealing to Eileen fails, Darkstream goes on the attack. Allyson, who wants Josh to know how she truly feels, jumps into the fray with Josh's Joshinator armor to even the odds, but Darkstream is unstoppable. Caught in an inescapable predicament, Darkstream prepares to kill Josh only for Allyson to take the hit. She utters her last words, "I love you", as she crumbles to pieces in Josh arms. Acacia and Josh retreat back to E.G.G base, and begin to make a plan to stop their best friend...
Title at the end?
Okay, so many of you were probably wondering "Wait, why was the title at the end of the episode?" Well, it's because it had a big spoiler in it! The Night Allyson Whitcomb Died! Um, yeah, I'm not gonna put that at the beginning! But all my hardcore Marvel fans know I took a play out of the Amazing Spider-Man #121 playbook, in the story titled The Night Gwen Stacy Died. They put it on the last page of the comic, which I thought was pretty neat, so I did the same thing here! Pretty cool of me, huh?
Terror in Rexburg
“Time for a new life, a new world!” She reached back and untied her medical gown, dropping it to the ground. Then she held her hand into the sky and red lightning rained down around her.
“Hahahaha!” She laughed, as she was slowly covered in a new suit. It was completely different, and completely evil. It was a black suit with red gloves, boots, belt, and shorts. She had on a black eye mask with glowing red lenses, and a red lightning streak across her chest. “Death and destruction shall reign supreme in my new world order! Darkstream is born!” Suddenly she heard a noise. She turned, but saw nothing. Ignoring it, she flew into the sky, held out her hands, and began to burn the field.
* * *
A new suit and a new mission: Destroy the world! Darkstream isn't messing around, and neither should our heroes. As Jocasta mentioned, Eileen may be gone, and they may have to be prepared to do the worst. But will they be?
Allyson still loves Josh
“He’s fine? Really? He has no weapons, no backup, and I don’t even know where Eileen is. The military couldn’t stop that girl Beck, whoever she is. What makes you think Josh can?”
“Allyson, you don’t know what’s down there.”
“And neither does Josh.” She replied. She sighed. “Beck, I can’t sleep. I can’t function. All I feel is emptiness in my stomach. Loss. I’m not saying I’m gonna go falling back into his arms, but I need him to know how I feel. Every time he goes into the field there’s a chance he may not come back. I don’t want to wait for that possibility. He needs to know.” Agent Becket shook his head.

I know that the big break up in 37 had some Jallyson's throwing their computers against the wall in a mad outrage, but it looks as of there was hope after all! Allyson still deep down had feelings for Josh. Unfortunately, we know how the story ends. So I guess Jallyson's can keep throwing their computers. Sorry guys...
“Acacia…” He said, pointing. She looked and saw a pile of S.H.I.E.L.D badges and little pieces of stone everywhere.
“Oh no,” Acacia said. “Looks like S.H.I.E.L.D already got here…”
“And failed.” Josh said, picking up the badges. “Oh geez, these are big names. Dum Dum Dugan, Gabriel Jones, Sharon Carter…”
“Those guys were level 8 agents!” Acacia said. She stopped and looked to see that she was standing on a badge. She picked it and gasped. “Clay…” She said, tears coming to her eyes. Josh was altered.
“Quartermain?” He asked. Acacia solemnly nodded, and clutched the badge close to her chest. Josh looked at the last badge in his hands. He sighed. “Maria Hill.” He said, laying all of them on the ground. “Eileen’s lost it. We’ve got to end this before anyone else dies.”
* * *
Like Josh said, those are some big names. Dum Dum Dugan and Gabe Jones ran with Cap and Nick Fury back in WWII as Howling Commandos! We all know Hill, the current Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Quartemain was Acacia's buddy and a veteran S.H.I.E.L.D agent, and Sharon Carter, or Agent 13 was Peggy Carter's niece and Cap's flame. I know, all the Marvel fans are up in arms right now, but just think about it: If Darkstream was able to beat these guys, the best of the best, what hope does E.G.G have of stopping her?
The death of Allyson
Josh pushed and pushed, but the rock wouldn’t budge.
“Eileen, please, I know you’re in there!” He cried. Darkstream laughed.
“Such a waste of life.” She said. A dark energy blast formed on her hands, and she launched it at Josh. Josh, seeing no way out, closed his eyes.
“No!” Allyson shouted, jumping in the way and getting hit by the blast.
“ALLYSON!” Josh screamed. He flexed his muscles, and with all his might, pushed the rock off of him. He rushed over to Allyson, who was beginning to turn to stone. “No, no, no, no, Allyson… why?” She reached up and touched his cheek.
“I love you.” She said, as she turned into stone, and crumbled to pieces in Josh’s arms.
“Hahahaha!” Darkstream laughed. “Well isn’t that sweet? She sacrificed herself for someone that didn’t even care about her.” Josh clenched his fists. He got up and ran for Darkstream.
“You killed her!” He screamed, charging head on. Darkstream laughed.
“Fool.” She said. She began to charge another blast when Acacia tackled Josh and in a puff of smoke, they both disappeared.
* * *
Talk about a tear jerker. Well, I hope you cried, otherwise you're just heartless! Allyson perished in the arms of the man she loved, protecting him. Now Josh has a super personal stake in this (as if Darkstream taking over his best friend's body wasn't personal enough already!) But will he be able to beat Darkstream, save Eileen and the world? Or is everyone doomed. One thing is certain: This is the end of E.G.G.
