Agent Carter Season 2, Episode 2 Synopsis: A View In The Dark


After the Agent Carter Season 2 premiere, what can the series do for an encore? Why, follow it up immediately with another new episode, of course!

More from TV

We’re sure the premiere episode is great, but since we’re not writing this post from the future, that’s merely an assumption we have for now. What we can tell you is that Peggy Carter has relocated to Los Angeles and is doing her thing for the West Coast branch of the SSR. She’s got friends around her, like Edwin Jarvis and her new boss, Daniel Sousa, but she’s also got to learn to navigate a whole new scene out in Los Angeles.

As we move into the second episode, “A View in the Dark,” even more of the spotlight is going to fall on Isodyne Energy and the fact that the murder connected to it definitely isn’t a typical one. Take a look at the official synopsis for Season 2, episode 2 from ABC and Marvel:

"Peggy discovers her murder investigation has huge ramifications that can destroy her career, as well as everyone near and dear to her, on “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” TUESDAY, JANUARY 19 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST) on the ABC Television Network."

Is it just that the people running Isodyne are well-connected? That certainly could be it, but there’s more going on there than meets the eye. Perhaps even tampering with things that aren’t of this world.

What we mean by that is that the Agent Carter showrunners have gone on the record explaining how Season 2 connects to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in some surprising ways, including the idea that Isodyne might have stumbled onto an extra-dimensional energy source. That would certainly keep Peggy’s hands full, though since she was around for the events of Captain America: The First Avenger, she’s certainly no stranger to energy from beyond our realm.

We’re certainly breathless in anticipation of seeing Hayley Atwell back in action and grateful for the double dose on the first night. “A View in the Dark” follows “The Lady in the Lake” at 10 pm on Tuesday, January 19 on ABC, and we’ll have our full recap and review here at Bam Smack Pow shortly after that.
