Quotes

Howard Stark: Wilkes was a member of the Arena Club?
Peggy Carter: Is that what that pin is from?
Howard Stark: Yeah. And I'm amazed they allowed him to be a member. They keep their ranks male and pale. Jarvis here isn't even white enough for them.

The Mystery is Gone
27 January 2016 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

Part of what made the first season so fun, was the mystery behind Leviathan and who the 'big bad' would be. I think season 2 is lacking that mystery. For whatever reason, I'm just not a fan of the Calvin Chadwick story line and it has hindered my liking of this season. Perhaps it's because I believe there is so much more they could be doing with a spy story in this time period. For one, the communism element that Wilkes has been accused of was definitely a huge issue for Americans during the late 40's and early 50's. So much so that it trickled into the Hollywood space creating many high profile scandals. I do like the fact that Chadwick is married to a Hollywood star in Whitney Frost and that's being used as a link for Hollywood and Isodine, but I just haven't been a fan of the overall direction this season is taking its lead villain.

With that said, how fun is it to watch and hear all the great Hollywood references this year? Adding Howard Stark into the mix this week proved to be the highlight of the entire episode. I don't think I'll eve get tired of the Stark balance of playboy billionaire meets straight up science nerd as Howard constantly tried fixing the problem of keeping Wilkes alive after the accident last week. I honestly have no idea how he even managed to bring him back, but in a world that will one day have a Hulk, I guess we can learn to accept it. It's worth mentioning that Peggy herself believed the mere idea of having a film based on a comic book was a "dreadful" idea, how meta Agent Carter, how meta.

So in all, this episode was a bit of step back from the two previous episodes this season and season 1 in general, but with all the Hollywood references and Howard Stark himself, it was definitely fun to watch. Even if that fun didn't have the spy mystery element I loved so much about last year.

+Hollywood setting continues to excel

+Stark is back

+Communism element is interesting

-Still not a big fan of Isodine

7.4/10
