Agent Carter Season 2, Episode 6 Synopsis: Life of the Party


Peggy Carter and Dottie Underwood on the same side? Jarvis and Dottie dancing together? What the … Looks like it might be desperation time in Agent Carter Season 2, episode 6, which is titled “Life of the Party.”

More from TV

With Peggy still on the mend after her injuries at the hands of Whitney Frost, she’s going to need a little help in the field this week. Edwin Jarvis has certainly proven to be more of a man of action than he might first appear — he did stop not one, but two nuclear bombs from going off last episode — but if things really go sideways, he might not be enough.

Enter Dottie, it seems. The official synopsis for “Life of the Party” reveals that these bitter foes might be forced to work together in the face of the seriously grave threat presented by Madame Masque. Here’s what Marvel and ABC have to say:

"When Peggy realizes she cannot save Wilkes on her own, she turns to her most unexpected adversary for help while Whitney makes a move to control the deadly Zero Matter, on “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EST) on the ABC Television Network."

It’s almost guaranteed to be a blast seeing exactly how the SSR gets Dottie to work with them. She’s already a master at undercover work, and the bad guys this season presumably don’t know her, so she’s pretty much perfect — you know, except for the whole “you can’t trust her at all” deal.

If Frost actually learns to harness all of the power of Zero Matter, it might not matter who’s on the side of the angels. One of the true surprises of Agent Carter this season has been exactly how dangerous the writers have made Whitney. She’s also delightfully deranged, just like her comic book counterpart.

And again, Jarvis and Dottie dancing could be worth the price of admission alone. You shouldn’t need any more reason to tune in Tuesday, February 16 at 9 pm, but here’s one more: this week offers two new episodes of Agent Carter. Our hard-working Christina Lazzara will have two recaps to do, so please help her out by coming back to Bam Smack Pow and reading them both later on Tuesday night.
