High off of the approval and success of her last mission, Peggy Carter is ready to get to the bottom of the little girls’ training school. She reasons that if Leviathan was trying to get to Howard Stark’s inventions, what better way than sending a woman? Since the SSR is blowing off her investigation, she reunites with Jarvis and takes matters into her own hands.
I need you to get me a list of all the women that Howard has entertained in the last year.”
“I don’t think there’s enough ink in the whole of New York to complete that request.”
What follows is a hilarious montage of Peggy and Jarvis visiting Howard’s former conquests so she can see if the women have marks on their wrists from shackling themselves to their bed posts. Unfortunately, none of them are a match and instead, Jarvis just gets slapped and kicked a lot. Poor guy. He better get a raise! But the final apartment has all the evidence Peggy needs. But while she’s researching, Sousa brings his own evidence that Peggy is connected to Howard. It’s all quite damning without her side of the story, so the hunt for her is on!
I absolutely loved the fight that ensued inside the locked up diner, especially with the happy jazz music playing over it. God, she is so badass. Every hit is so hard and brutal. But when she makes it outside, she’s confronted by Agent Chad Michael Murray. He tries to stop her and is knocked out for it. And yeah, that was just a wee bit satisfying. Sousa comes along, sees the unconscious agent and his suspicions grow even more. Dammit, Sousa, you really jumped the gun! And your stupid, cute little puppy dog face makes it so hard to be mad at you.
Peggy makes it back to her apartment to retrieve Steve’s blood, but the SSR is hot on her tails. Angie, seeing her friend randomly teetering on the ledge outside her window, decides to help her fend off the men without question. She starts crying and the agents can’t do much more than just feel insanely uncomfortable. “Please…stop…” I was laughing so hard.
Peggy and Angie are developing such a lovely, beautiful friendship. I hope she becomes a true confidant for Peggy. That Peggy can come home at the end of the day, share some Schnapps with her, and talk about her crazy missions. Angie has definitely proven she can be trusted, even when she has no idea what the real story is.
When Peggy is almost out, she, unfortunately, runs into Dottie, who we’ve seen wreak all manor of havoc throughout the episode. But we get our first girl-on-girl action in the MCU. Hooray! Haha. Peggy is knocked out, but before Dottie can kill her, the SSR comes back to take her away. Nooooo. (Also hilarious that the only way the SSR can capture her is when she’s unconscious. Heh.)
SSR Head Honcho tells Sousa “Don’t go easy on her just because she’s a girl.” Oh, sure. While she’s your comrade and coworker, you can barely a muster a crumb of respect for her. But now that she’s in trouble and it’s convenient for you to punish her, you’re going to treat her like your equal? Ugh.
I have a feeling they’ll be sorry they took her captive when Dottie comes a-callin’. She has her orders, after all.
- “Just the usual stuff. Complained about her fathead male coworkers a lot.” Angie is the best.
- I’m now trying to imagine Howard and Dottie together. She doesn’t seem much like his type, but eh. He’s not one to discriminate.
- Angie: What’s your grandmother’s name?
- The Russian dude’s ring turning seemed pretty cheesy. And that scene between him and the random SSR dude went on for an unnecessarily long time.
- Angie and Peggy hugs.
- “I look forward to hearing what this is about someday.”
“Take care of yourself, English.”
