Following a brief one-week hiatus, Marvel’s Agent Carter returns for the first episode in a final run of five straight weeks through to the end of this (hopefully first of many) mini-season. Having found Howard Stark [Dominic Cooper]’s stolen weapons in the last episode, Peggy Carter [Hayley Atwell] is surprised to find that the man himself has returned to New York, and worse, he wants her to get one of his weapons back. Meanwhile, Carter’s fellow agents are beginning to close in on information that may expose her, and one of Stark’s erstwhile shady business partners just might want her dead. And who – or what – is the new lady in 3E at The Griffith Hotel? Click through for my complete review.
Spoiler Alert: Unlike my previous reviews of Marvel’s Agent Carter, this review will not only discuss events, but will contain a brief synopsis of Episode 104, “The Blitzkrieg Button”, and is written with the assumption that you are up-to-date on the series so far.
