"The secret is out. For decades your organization stayed in the shadows, hiding the truth. But now we know: they’re among us. Heroes… And monsters. The world is full of wonders. We can’t explain everything we see, but our eyes are open. So, what now? There are no more shadows for you to hide in. Something impossible just happened… What are you going to do about it?” - Skye (1x01 - Pilot)

Remember how she was the central character of the whole freaking movie?
Anyone else remember that? I sure do.
