Rating: 8.5/10

As Agent Carter continues her investigation, SSR finds a bumper belonging to one of Howard Stark’s cars and arrest Jarvis on a whim. Now Peggy’s pulling double duty as she gets closer to Stark’s framers and has to free Jarvis from her employers.

I have to compliment the cinematography of this show. The cameramen and crew have all been great at capturing the colors and angles of a comic book, and being that this takes place during the Golden Age of Comics, it’s fitting that they use the vibrant colors and imagery of the 40s comic-book stylings of the time period.

This was a much slower-paced episode than the previous two. The focus was more on the professional relationship and growing friendship between Carter and Jarvis, and a few secrets might be revealed along the way. I like their dynamic, but I also wish there was a bit more action in this one and less slow walks down corridors.

SCORING:

+7.5: Perfectly adequate episode that builds the main story

+1: great set-pieces, costumes, and cinematography

+1: Great characters too

-1: A few too many scenes without enough plot development
