Agent Carter talks SHIELD episode- One Door Closes

Hello, Agent Carter here- I’ve been spending my free time watching what’s become of the SSR Agency I started. Now it’s SHIELD, except well, it’s split into two agencies. The whole situation is quite daft. Let’s see what’s happening…

Flashback to the day SHIELD fell

Flashback to the day SHIELD fell. Things certainly were grim. 

Ah a flashback! We are watching the day SHIELD fell to Hydra. I’m quite sure we went through this already. I see, not this specific scenario. Looks like Mack, Bobbi and Hartley were on a ship together and found safety in numbers. Mack and many of the agents here lost friends. This is always so difficult. Hartley certainly seems no nonsense. I wish we had more of her!

Skye has a chat with Gemma, who asks if she’s tried on the gloves. Gemma mentions their healing powers, but nothing about side-effects. This casualness to side effects is so genius scientist. We tracked down many of Stark’s innocuous looking devices only to find out there are terrible possibilities. Are these side-effects mental or actual? How do they dull her ability? Also what is a ‘Little Debbie’? I must ask someone.

Bobbi is determined to find out what is with Coulson’s secrecy. She backs up Mack’s story about Hunter. Then wanders off to investigate. As the head of an agency I believe you can have a few secrets, since you know all of them. Coulson is interrogating Mack, since he knows that Mack’s gift of mini-Lola has a hidden gizmo, which he’s turned over to Fitz. As an aside- Fitz seems to be quite upset with Simmons treatment of Skye as a ‘science experiment.’ And Simmons is using his first name. That is never a good sign among friends.

Mac and Coulson have a chat, as Lola stands by quietly.

Coulson gets May and warns her, then May comes across Bobbi, getting Fury’s toolbox out of Coulson’s desk. It is quite naughty to break into a superior’s office. And get caught. Perhaps this rift is about intel? It is the great currency after all. Bobbi and May fight and Bobbi sets off an EMP, then both she and Mack escape.

Our team regroups. Fitz goes to engage a manual lock down. May and Coulson try to decipher Bobbi’s comment about the ‘Real Shield’. And we see Bobbi make contact with Gonzales and report about going to Plan B. In a flashback, we see that Bobbi, Mack and Hartley were on a mission for Fury to find Gonzales on the day Hydra broke SHIELD.

Hartely and Bobbi have a quick meeting with Gonzales as everything goes to pieces.

Now we are back with Skye, who is trying out the gloves, which make her feel slightly sick. And the glow? She’s trying to figure out where the network went. She’s hearing sounds outside, she’s finding hidden panels inside, she’s leaving her nifty phone device on the floor. And there’s a knock at the door. And it’s our blind friend, named Gordon, who travels time and space. He can ‘see’ quite well. Does he still ‘see’ if he’s wearing dark glasses? He starts babbling on about her gifts and how he was transformed and accepted. He offers to take her to a place where there are people like ‘us’. He suggests that she can control her powers. Then he does give her a choice to go with him. She declines.

Gordon the teleporter comes through the door for a talk with Skye.

Bobbi finds Simmons in the locker room and tries to get Gemma to go with her. Simmons says sure, but she has to find this thing and she digs through a bag from her locker. She hands Bobbi something and keeps digging and then hands Bobbi something else, all the while gabbing on about the EMP signal. Bobbi gets stunned and Simmons radios May. My what a clever girl!

Agent Simmons is such a sweet girl. But but carefully of chatting with her!

Fitz is in the main servers looking for problems and he finds the communication bypass chip Bobbi put in to make her call. Mack finds Fitz and tries to sweet talk him. A gas starts coming in through the vents. Fitz wants to run and/or fight and Mack to his credit wants to protect him. Which he does, when the wall explodes, breached by the ‘Real SHIELD’.

Mack and Fitz are interrupted during their chat!

Meanwhile May had discovered a gas mask and realized the plan is to knockout people and get onboard. She starts running to where Coulson is, as gas is pouring in that room. In the flashback, Bobbi reveals she had a second mission from Fury. She was supposed to wipe out the ship’s controls and sink it and its cargo to the seafloor. Likely taking her along. Everyone in the room, including Gonzales, says she can’t do it alone. So they set off to take back control room. Back at Coulson’s SHIELD, Gonzales and his crew have arrived and rounded up everyone. May is still loose and overhears plans to go fetch Skye. She calls Skye, who was having a moment of control making water go spiral, no doubt she’s pondering the blind man’s advice of trying to control the vibrational frequencies of anything and everything. Sky answers May’s call and goes outside to find that she is under attack as May said. By SHIELD it seems.

More flashback! They get to the control room. Bobbi gets ready to sink the ship. Hartley and Mack convince her to stay and fight, but Gonzales is against defending the ship as they are outnumbered. Luckily Bobbi then convinces him. So they managed to save the ship and save the remaining SHIELD agents. This is a plucky crew.

Gonzales finishes telling his little story and Coulson still doesn’t agree. He says Fury choose him. He says he tried to find Gonzales to bring him on board. Gonzales is, of course, correct about Coulson’s teenage boy obsession with the alien technology, but wrong in not seeing that Coulson got past it. Gonzales hands Fury’s tool box to an agent to take to Fitz and Simmons. Coulson says they won’t help but Gonzales says they are SHIELD agents and could make different choices. May shows up and ices the agent and Gonzales. May tells Coulson he’s SHIELD Director and he needs to find Skye.

Agent May is tired of all this chatting, especially when it's between Coulson and Gonzales.

We watch as Bobbi and Calderon try to track down Skye. He starts talking about his rescue of Weaver from the academy, during Hydra day, where she was showing down with Mr Icy. They hear a shot and we see that an agent tried to take down Skye and she fights him off as Bobbi and Calderon arrive. He raises his gun and shoots and Skye repels the bullet. And also a tree or dozen. Part of which spears him. She calls for Gordon and he comes and takes her away in a blinding flash.

Someone really needs to talk to Skye about her powers.

In a last shot, we see Coulson having a drink in a rather tropical bar. Hunter sits next to him. Hunter hands him a signed napkin and says, consider that my signature for a signed employment contract. Then he asks, “what’s next boss?”

Catching up over umbrella drinks is always good, especially when you're on the run.

Dossier Notes:

With all this focus on the Agency split, I do hope someone is still mindful of the leftovers of Hydra. You can’t let even one get away!

For the record it is quite rude to gas your coworkers. I only did that once.

I must study more about this Dr. Banner, that is quite a clever retreat he built. And quite a large mark he left.

I wonder how many bytes all those computers hold, Fitz? 32? 64?


Agent Carter! Episode 8-Valediction

We open with the band back together! The radio show must go on! That nifty narration of the story of Captain America seems to be in it’s last episode as it tells the story of Steve’s descent into an ocean..

Carter and Thompson are talking to the city cop of the movie massacre case, who’s explaining how there were no survivors and the scene looks like a monster attack. They walk in and look at the bodies. Carter says, ‘a monster didn’t kill these people, they killed each other.’ Meanwhile Sousa scampers to the baby carriage, touches the evidence, finds it empty, then keeps touching stuff at the crime scene and nabs the gas canister off the ground. With the push of a button, he gets a noseful of the stuff and coughs and sputters, until Thompson comes to help. He turns to Thomson and starts madly choking him.

Sousa get's ready to go nuts!

Recap, Agent Carter episode 5, Iron Ceiling

Rise and shine my little assassins!

Hold onto your knickers! We are getting a glimpse of the Russian Black Widow program! Here’s where Russia’s best girls are turned into killing machines. We watch a certain star pupil as she eats, learns English by watching cartoons and practices fight skills.

Agent Carter takes names in The Blitzkrieg Button!

Agent Carter is in no mood for your crap.

Peggy! Is nowhere to be seen! Instead we have Jarvis dealing with some thugs. And they are trying extort him. Only they don’t know it. Luckily Peggy gets the drop on a few and Jarvis knocks them out. With knock out gas! In a briefcase! The goods they were smuggling turn out to be a living room full of Howard Stark.

Agent Carter Episode 3, Time and Tide!

Jarvis looking pensive.

Rules are made to be broken! Unless you live in a ladies hotel.

In roads are being made on the Stark and Roxxon implosion investigation. The SSR dudes found the nifty typewriter and they’ve figured out the dead bad guy from last week was named Leet Brannis. He was soldier that had supposedly died in WWII two years ago, yet here he is (was?) skulking about with some Howard Starks stolen ‘bad babies’.  Something majorly secret is going on, but how secret is unknown, as Brannis had his voice box removed, hence the strange scar at his throat.

No matter! Jarvis gets pulled downtown to be questioned about that pesky missing bumper from a car registered to Howard Stark that was found at the Roxxon implosion. During the questioning we (and Peggy!) learn that Jarvis was dishonorably discharged, along with charged with treason. What the hell dapper sidekick?! You can’t expect to be paling around with Captain America’s #1 fan with secrets like this! The agents threaten his wife’s quiet life in the states, while claiming his stolen car is a lie. Of course, we know it isn’t, but it’s all for the good cause!

So Agent Carter throws herself under the bus by blowing the agents out of the water and revealing to Jarvis that the stolen car report does exist. Pressure relieved, Jarvis goes home, while our favorite agent takes a tongue lashing from the boss. Now she has to pretend to be the dumb, brave office girl!

Politics at the ladies hotel are rife with turmoil and a overzealous overseer/warden. She nimbly kicks out the woman who dared to have a man come above the “first floor” aka her room! Meanwhile, Peggy blows off her diner friend, Angie, to avoid schnapps in favor of sleep, aka secret spy stuff. This annoys the heck out of Angie, who stalks off in a huff and there’s no aka needed for that!

So Peggy sneaks into the night to go with Jarvis to have a look at the broken in safe. They figure out that the thief, Mr. Brannis, floated his way with Stark tech down the sewers into a boat. While they are venturing down the tunnels, Jarvis reveals his treason was to help a young Jewish woman who needed help escaping the Nazi regime. He helped and was caught. Stark found him and used his influence to avoid a hanging and the woman he saved, Mrs. Jarvis. Captain America’s #1 fan heartily approves of this sort of treason and all is forgiven.

They see a boat with the magic symbol that Brannis drew as he died (as not being able to speak makes it hard to convey information) and go to investigate! Boxes of stolen Stark Tech are found! Peggy wants to call in the discovery when Jarvis rightly points out that if she does that, Stark’s name won’t be cleared and she’ll be implicated. Jarvis leaves to drop an anonymous tip, meanwhilePeggy gets ambushed by a big dude. Seriously, what does that guy eat, fresh Aquamen plucked daily from the sea?

Seriously, look at this guy, wth?

Seriously, look at this guy, wth?

Peggy nearly gets the drop on him, but well there’s that size problem! Luckily Jarvis arrives, back from doing a hilarious fake American accent while leaving a tip for the SSR team and together, with the help of some Stark Tech,  they manage to take the big bruiser down.

Size doesn't matter dude, Agent Carter is still putting you down!

Size doesn’t matter dude, Agent Carter is still putting you down!

The agents at the SSR office on night duty, Sousa and Krzeminski, come to check out the tip, find the loot and call in everyone. The Stark tech gets packed up for the lab. Agent Krzeminski and the big witness guy get in a car to go down to the station but get stopped by a train. Then a car rear ends them! The driver gets out and shoots Krzeminski and then the big witness guy, despite the latter begging for his life. Don’t work for people who run around stealing stuff!.

Now we have a lot of sad! The whole office is bummed out. The lady phone operators are bawling their eyes out. Chief Dooley is blustering about getting the man responsible and that man, he says, is Stark. Maybe he didn’t pull the trigger, but his traitorous activities got one of his agents killed and damnit, there’s going ot be hell to pay!

We end with Peggy going back to the diner to make up with Angie. And we get to see the softer side of Peggy, who cries over the death of a fellow agent, even if he was big jerk. Or maybe she’s crying cause she refused to cover the night shift for that guy and he died! Time will tell.

Notes added to the SHIELD portfolio:

Jarvis is the man. We knew it before, but now its official.

Peggy’s boarding room matron missed her calling as drill sergeant.

Removing a person’s larynx doesn’t prevent them from writing or drawing things. Take note secret evil organizations!

Having a drink with friends to unwind is fine, but please avoid schnapps.

Meet Agent Carter!

Agent Carter

Tonight we got to visit with the fabulous Agent Carter again!

She’s still getting over the loss of Captain America, aka Steve Rogers, who is now chilling at the bottom of the arctic. Also she helped save to world and now the boys in the office want her to… file the paperwork. BORIIIIING!

And we get to peek in at Howard Stark aka dad of Iron Man, though it’s 1946 and he’s not born yet. Stark behavior runs in the family and Howie is in front of congress defending himself against treasonous acts of selling weapons.
