Agent Carter Season 2, Episode 5 Synopsis: The Atomic Job


During the first few weeks of Agent Carter Season 2, we’ve seen Peggy Carter and friends coming to terms with Zero Matter, a technology that’s not of this world and definitely doesn’t exist in the real world … as far as we know! This week, their lives will get more complicated thanks to one of the scariest threats that actually does exist in our lives.

In “The Atomic Job,” California is in danger from someone with access to nuclear technology, and it’s going to take both Peggy and Jarvis to save the day. Honestly, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Check out the official synopsis for “The Atomic Job” from ABC:

"As Jarvis’ precision and quick-thinking skills are put to the ultimate test, Peggy must find a way to stop an atomic explosion that threatens to destroy all of California, on “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EST) on the ABC Television Network."

We know the episode is already finished, so there’s no way the producers and writers can take requests, but we have one anyway: More Mrs. Jarvis please! Ana Jarvis have proven to be a delightful addition to the Agent Carter supporting cast, full of surprises and one of the few females on the show who can both keep up with and support Peggy at the same time. Clearly, she’s not meant to play a major role in this season, but we’d still like to see more of her.

As for this episode’s main storyline, you have to wonder if the atomic threat is a distraction by someone the Council of Nine has set loose to throw the SSR temporarily off the trail of Whitney Frost. The bad guys really only have to buy her a little bit of time, since her control of the Zero Matter may be strengthening but it’s also literally making her come apart at the seams.
