The noose tightens around Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell) while more and more tie-in minutiae is jammed into each episode. Agent Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) continues to do actual investigative work as he unwittingly closes in on Agent Carter’s secret mission life. Something in the photo of the blond woman (remember I mentioned that last time) makes him wonder how she would look with dark hair. I guess there is something to say for instinct, or following a hunch or whateves gumshoes call it. I’d just like it if there was something more obvious for us. A bracelet, a ring. Something. Having him just suddenly suspect Carter seems a little unfair to me. Howard (Dominic Cooper) is back and entertaining as ever. I can actually believe he is Tony Stark’s dad. If only douchbags were this charming and funny in real life. You would think the S.S.R. grabbing a boatload of Stark’s toys would be a good thing. Apparently not. Plot twist!!! Because one of those toys can turn the lights out in New York for the next few years if it is activated. Or dropped. Or something. Naturally the bumbling humans have to be saved from themselves, so Carter is asked to steal evidence and become an even bigger traitor then she already is. But wait! There’s more. Hold onto your butt. The device actually held a vial of Steve Roger’s blood. Because there aren’t enough tie-ins to the MCU. And because it could be the cure for everything that gets cured in later years anyway. I’m not sure how far they can take this blood thing in the final four episodes unless it carries over to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. somehow. And what’s up with the gal next door (Bridget Regan)? Is she a spy? An assassin? Friend, foe? I was honestly blind-sided by her Mortal Kombat fatality scene. And then we have the message coming in on the weird typewriter. That’s enough to bring me back for more! Agent Carter 1.04 "Blitzkrieg Button"3.8Overall ScoreReader Rating: (1 Vote)Share this:TweetShare on TumblrLike this:Like Loading...
