AGENT CARTER 2X10 Debriefing: L.A. Confidential

Courtesy ABC

Apologies for the delay, folks. I’m obviously not as resourceful as our dear Peggy!

For the entirety of its second season, Agent Carter has danced around the impending disaster of the Zero Matter showdown with Whitney Frost, using her terrorizing as a backdrop for all of our characters’ personal struggles.

In “Hollywood Ending,” the show doubles down on some of those questions, while leaving others tantalizingly unresolved. If this is is the end of the series as we know it (perish the thought), there’s no doubt that fans will certainly be left debating the outcome for years to come.

But when it comes down to it, there is only one question that really matters: will Peggy Carter ever find happiness? Read on to find out.

[Warning: the following post contains spoilers for the Agent Carter season finale.]

When she isn’t watching whichever show is currently capturing her heart, she is writing about how said show is currently capturing her heart. She loves pie.

Apologies for the delay in posting, folks. Better late than never?

I may have taken a break from writing about Agent Carter over the last few weeks, but that doesn’t mean our intrepid heroine has taken time off from taking down criminal masterminds.

Whitney Frost (Wynn Everett) has unleashed her true megalomaniacal self upon the world, and has taken Dottie Underwood (Bridget Regan) along for the ride, while poor Jason Wilkes (Reggie Austin) struggles just to stay whole, metaphorically and physically. But Peggy (Hayley Atwell) has more pressing matters: as if evil superpowers and love triangles weren’t enough to fill her plate, poor Ana (Lotte Verbeek) has gotten caught in the crossfire, and a gunshot wound to the abdomen at Frost’s hands leaves her life hanging in the balance. Jarvis (James D’Arcy) is inconsolable, and standing by her friend is of the utmost concern at this trying time. Can’t these guys ever catch a break?

Hot on the trails of last week’s disaster, Peggy and the SSR are on the hunt for clues about what happened to Dr. Wilkes and Whitney Frost. Can they find out what happened to the Zero Matter before it starts another ice age?

AGENT CARTER 2X02 Debriefing: We’re just getting started

We pick up right where we left off in our previous chapter. Peggy’s consorting with swimming pools and movie stars — by way of Howard Stark’s mansion. There’s still work to be done at the SSR, so there’s no living the fab life for our intrepid heroine.

She’s back!

It’s been nearly a year since Peggy Carter last graced out screens, and boy, does she know how to make a comeback! With a transcontinental move and some old friends by her side, and foes at her neck, she proves that there’s nothing a little sunshine can’t make better.

Agent Carter is here to tell the world that women are just as powerful — and capable of evil — as their male counterparts, and it’s utterly fascinating to watch. If Season 1 was about Peggy clawing her way through the patriarchy, Season 2 seems to be setting up a whole new way of running the world, and it’s about time we all listened.

Apologies for the delay everyone. Crazy real-life work schedule + terrible internet connections = awful backlog on my DVR and not nearly enough time to talk about any of it.

This week on Agent Carter, we delve a little deeper into the Stark disappearance mystery, while gaining some much-needed backstory on one Mr. Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy). Plus, Peggy (Hayley Atwell) foils her colleagues by pretending she’s dumb, while proceeding to kick ass in a variety of ways, as per usual. Then someone at SSR is killed (spoiler alert!), and the plot thickens.

I’ve got a confession to make.

I’m not really into the whole superhero zeitgeist of late.

I’ve seen a couple of the Marvel movies, sure. (Definitely at least one Iron Man, and I think one of the Captain America films, too.) I watched the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot last year and liked it enough, but never managed to keep up with it beyond the first few episodes. I’ve come across gifs from Arrow and Guardians of the Galaxy on Tumblr from time to time. They all seem very entertaining, but they just aren’t the first thing I think of when I want some distraction.

So when they announced Agent Carter picked up to series, I was intrigued, because I was curious about how they were going to adapt Hayley Atwell’s role for the small screen.

Then I saw the trailer, and I was hooked.

Feisty women holding their own in a sexist workplace? Check. Said women being secret double agents trying to prove a friend’s innocence? Check. Proving they are more competent than any of their co-workers and gaining some fans along the way? Check. Gorgeous period sets to recreate 1946 New York? Check.

Needless to say, the Agent Carter premiere was highly anticipated, and it absolutely lived up to the hype.

And here is why we all need a little more Peggy Carter in our lives.
