Agent Carter s2e3: Better Angels

MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER – “Better Angels” – Peggy’s search for the truth about Zero Matter puts her on a collision course with her superiors as Howard Stark barnstorms in, on “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” TUESDAY, JANUARY 26 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EST) on the ABC Television Network.

Rating: 10/10

Agent Carter investigates further into zero matter, discovering along the way she may have been infected with the freezing disease that’s been turning people into human popsicles. She and Jarvis enlist the help of Howard Stark to use his scientific brain and personal connections to get closer to the cause of this mystery.

Howard is again a welcome addition to the show. You can tell Tony took after his grandfather and I’m half convinced Howard might have his own version of an Iron Man suit hidden away somewhere. I may have used that joke before, oh well. Overall this was a very good episode focusing more on the mystery aspects of being a spy, and still delving into some horror tropes along the way.

This episode is skimming through so many genres I’m surprised it doesn’t come apart at the seems. But it does it all so fluidly we come back with a great spy-mystery-comedy-science-fiction-horror thing. Hopefully in the next one they add even MORE genres.
