Jarvis mentions how he would hate to be a disembodied voice for all time. In the Iron Man movies, Tony Stark has a computer named Jarvis who appears only as a disembodied voice. See more »


When Agent Carter is searching Dr. Wilkes' home and finds the airplane boarding passes under the floorboards, the airplane silhouettes on the pass are those of a modern day jet airliner which did not exist in 1947. See more »


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.

I know, I'm great. And so is she.
26 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

The story continues and it brings back Howard Stark. I will say that he seemed to be in the episode a bit too much though. However, it is great that he hasn't changed. I loved the bit where he couldn't remember Dottie, even when Jarvis said she held him at gunpoint, like it happens all the time with other women. That was too funny. The meta reference about how comic book movies not being able to work in Hollywood was good too.

Stark was able to bring back Wilkes and I'm glad he isn't gone as he made an impression on the audience and Carter. It is a true mystery about how Wilkes was sent to another dimension yet Whitney was hit by the same blast and somehow absorbed the zero matter.

Thompson was starting to annoy me again since Vernon came along as he has basically been stonewalling Sousa and Carter. However, after he watched the video of zero matter, it seems like he might be coming back to Carter's side. Hopefully, he could come around.

The infiltration into the Arena Club was fun as Stark was up to his old tricks of bringing his women to the club in order to help Carter with her mission.

One complaint that I have is that it is turning away from the spy game and going further into the science fiction world. While this worked well for Agents of Shield, it isn't working so well for Agent Carter.

+ Thompson's coming around + Arena Club infiltration + Wilkes is still around + Stark... - ...a bit too much though - Stay with what you're good at: espionage

Final Score: 7.7/10
