Whose Really Behind The LMDs on Agents Of SHIELD?

holden_radcliffeIf you're watching Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, you may be thinking the same thing that I was thinking…  Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) created Aida (Mallory Jansen) and the Darkhold has turned her evil. But has it really? Radcliffe wasn't exactly a nice guy when he was introduced and seemed almost eager to experiment on the Inhumans. But this season he seems to be on the side of the angels… or is he? Ming-Na Wen's character Melinda May was the first swapped out for an LMD and she told TVLine:

The big question is, 'What is Radcliffe's motivation?' — not so much Aida's — because he's the taskmaster in this whole scheme of changing out May for the LMD May. Is [his agenda] for something good … or is he the mad scientist hoping to advance science? I don't think he went through all this trouble for s–ts and giggles!

Is this all Radcliffe's plan? The results of Aida reading the Darkhold? Or something in-between?
