"S.H.I.E.L.D.'s here."
"Ours or theirs?"
"Damn it. How did they find us?"
"I invited them."
Phil Coulson and Lance Hunter[src]

The Ambush at the Retreat was a battle between Phil Coulson and Lance Hunter against Robert Gonzales' S.H.I.E.L.D. forces. After Coulson and Hunter were captured, Deathlok arrived and rescued them.


"The problem is, there are no good options."
"Well, maybe it's time for the bad ones."
Phil Coulson and Lance Hunter[src]

Robert Gonzales's faction of S.H.I.E.L.D. took over the Playground, so Phil Coulson needed to escape. Once safe, he met up with Lance Hunter. They proceeded to the Retreat to figure out what to do next. Coulson knew that Gonzales would be able to track them and that they had to wait for Coulson's reinforcements until they were able to make an escape. They later noticed the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents outside the house. The agents got out an Electronic Battering Ram and started to hit the door so they could knock it down.[2]


"We're gonna find Skye and I'm gonna take back S.H.I.E.L.D., and we're gonna need more than Honest Eddie's Jeep to do it."
"You want to take their Quinjet... the two of us, while we're trapped in here, surrounded? Brilliant."
"I have reinforcements on the way."
Phil Coulson and Lance Hunter[src]

Phil Coulson used Holographic Cards to project a hologram of him and Hunter playing cards to trick the agents. Hunter did not think it would work, but he was proven wrong when he and Coulson were able to take down all of the agents with I.C.E.R.'s and proceed to outside the Retreat. Outside, they were confronted by more S.H.I.E.L.D. agents that were in shielded Quinjets. They were taken into the Quinjet and were about to be taken back to Gonzales. Hunter kept asking where Coulson's reinforcements were and Coulson kept telling him to wait.


Deathlok manages to shoot down a Quinjet

Right before the Quinjet doors closed, Deathlok arrived and took down all the agents that had captured Coulson and Hunter. Deathlok then used his arm cannon to take down the other Quinjet.[2]


"At some point, you might have mentioned that backup was a lethal cyborg."
"Truthfully, I just wanted to see the look on your face when he showed up – priceless."
Lance Hunter and Phil Coulson[src]

Deathlok piloted the one Quinjet to take Phil Coulson and Lance Hunter to their next location. Hunter asked Coulson what their next location was and Coulson told them they were going to find Grant Ward.[2]
