It was only a matter of time before the SSR became somewhat aware of what Peggy’s been up to, and it’s fitting that the guy who figures it out is Sousa—like Peggy, Sousa is also often undervalued at work. As Dr. Ivchenko points out, it’s easy for women to be utilized in the field because men underestimate them, just as it’s easy for Sousa to catch on to Carter because he’s often sidelined and viewed as a softy. Ah, stereotypes. They’re so charming.

Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' will hit the ground running with its 'Inhumans' element in March 3 return "Aftershocks," but the subsequent week will return to a more familiar corner of the MCU, and with a fan-favorite at that. 'Thor' star Jaimie Alexander will put in a second appearance as the battling Lady Sif, only this time the Asgardian won't quite be at her best.
Where yesterday brought word that Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ had cast its first outright ‘Inhuman,’ the latest spot for the ‘Avengers’-adjacent drama’s 2015 return has the super-powered subset hitting the streets full-time, even literally. Preview the “Aftershocks” of Marvel’s next phase with the latest ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ trailers for March 3!
Much as we’ve enjoyed ‘Agent Carter’’s 1940's adventures through the Marvel universe, March 3 will see the ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ returning to present day after its 2014 finale, charting a new course through the “Aftershocks” of “What They Become.” To wit, Marvel has cast its very first documented ‘Inhuman tasking ‘Tomorrow People’’s Luke Mitchell as an enigmatic new figure for Skye.
Sure, Peggy earned some begrudging respect from her fellow SSR operatives in this past week’s mission alongside the Howling Commandos, but the Stark really hits the fan (forgive me) in next week’s “A Sin to Err,” as Peggy herself becomes a wanted fugitive for her covert acts. Worse than that, secret super-spy Dottie Underwood literally sets her sights on Peggy, and Cap isn’t around to throw his mighty shield.
Early on in “The Iron Ceiling,” Jarvis tells Peggy that she’ll never get her male co-workers to respect her, to which she replies that she’ll just have to make them do it. And that’s just what Peggy does in tonight’s new episode of ‘Agent Carter,’ for it’s only her Russian expertise and code-cracking abilities that can help the SSR on their mission to pursue Leviathan and Tony Stark, and it’s only Peggy who’s pals with the 107th, aka the Howling Commandos (they hate that name).
Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ hasn’t leaned on MCU connections in the manner ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ had early on, yet the Hayley Atwell-starring prequel may yet bring us our first taste of a fan-favorite Avenger. Find out what “The Iron Ceiling” will reveal about the deadly Black Widow in the latest promo and intel for Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter!’
Last night saw ‘Agent Carter’’s “Blitzkrieg Button” opening up quite a bit of ground beneath Peggy and Howard Stark, but the March 3 return of Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ will really feel the “Aftershocks.” Get a first look at ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’'s Inhuman return and Skye’s transformation with our newest footage from the second half of season 2!
Howard Stark returns on tonight’s ‘Agent Carter,’ introducing the concept of the titular “Blitzkrieg Button,” although it proves to be little more than a distraction piled on top of a distraction for Peggy, who’s already working so diligently to lead what is essentially a triple-life. While the men at the SSR talk about what it means to be an agent, which is the most important part of who they are, it’s only Peggy who truly knows both the cost and the value of dedicating your life to the job.
Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ will return from a brief hiatus tonight to push “The Blitzkrieg Button” on Howard Stark, but theirs aren’t the only major returns in line for the ‘Captain America’ spinoff. Next week’s “The Iron Ceiling” will see Dum Dum Dugan and the rest of the Howling Commandos return, as seen in the hour’s full photo set!
