Pod 1 focuses largely on the emergence of the character known as Ghost Rider, but some transhumanist elements are also present including:
   −
* The introduction of Aida - a cybernetic robot with human appearance created by Dr. Radcliffe (A [[transhumanist]] as mentioned in season 3). The Dr. also mentions the events that took place in [[Avengers: Age of Ultron]] and that [[AI]] is banned. He also says Aida is mimicry technology and not Artificial Intelligence. Aida potentially passing the [[Turing test]] is also mentioned.

Episode 8 (the mid-season finale) leaves us with a cliffhanger that AIDA, a life model decoy (LMD) or Android, has become self-aware after reading a book that is known as the "Darkhold". This story arc is picked up again in episode 9 where we learn that AIDA has created an android version of agent May, killed a SHIELD agent, and begun a quest to regain the Darkhold book.

The Darkhold is also said during the episode to be able to show man "how to live forever" and Dr Radcliffe (who we already know to be a transhumanist) says; "man could once and for all break the bonds of his mortal restraints".

===== Pod 2 - LMD =====
   −
It is revealed that Dr. Radcliffe tried to use Aida to retrieve the darkhold. He also makes an LMD of agent May which sends in to shield as he keeps the real agent May hostage. The LMD of agent May seems to think she is in fact herself, this may mean that Dr Radcliffe has found a way to either transfer a person's consciousness into an LMD. Episode 10 confirms that LMD May had her memories implanted from real May, this is by what is shown as "memory upload" rather than consciousness transfer. Real agent May is also placed into a simulation. It is also revealed that Dr. Radcliffe has created an LMD of himself.

When the framework is up and running, the woman whom AIDA was designed to look like (Agnes) is uploaded into it in order to save her consciousness when her biological body dies. It is not made entirely clear whether or not this is a transfer of consciousness, or merely a copy that lives on inside the framework. Agnes is later killed inside the framework by AIDA, seemingly bringing an end to her life both physically and digitally.
