Welcome to another episode of Agent Carter, this one written by Lyndsey Allen and the first one I reviewed since the sad news that it isn't coming back for a season 3. That just sucks, this show needs to live on, it is so good! How ironic right after the news broke about the show they kill her off in Civil War, it was like they were saying goodbye.
The episode starts off in Russia as people are getting ready for a mission. One man says he wants out so he can reconnect with his family so they kill him and the rest of his family. We jump to the present, or well the present in the show's time where Ivchenko is telling this story to Carter and Chief Dooley. Carter tells him that she thinks Stark was set up and he lets her investigate it.
Carter's roommate is about to give up on her dreams of acting but Carter pushes her to keep working towards it till Jarvis shows up and her friend takes off, clearly hurt by being pushes aside. Carter suspects that a woman, this eras Black Widow set him up and she asks Jarvis if he can get a list of all the women he has been with for the last 6 months.
Dottie Underwood, aka this years Black Widow shows up at a dentist office alone while Sousa follows down some leads of his own.
The dentist tries to hit on Dottie but she snaps his wrist like he is made out of paper while Carter forces Jarvis to go with her while she checks out all of Howards exes. The same women that Howard made Jarvis break up with for him. Needless to say it did not go well for Jarvis. A very funny scene in a otherwise serious episode.
Meanwhile Ivchenko, or Dr. Faustus as comic fans might know him, is being questioned some more by the chief. The chief starts to get comfortable with the guy who starts to psychoanalyze him. Turning the conversation to his troubled marriage. He gets the chief to tell him what building he is in, while Dottie, in the office of the dentist she killed, locks him. She sends him a code using light from the gun. He gives her a message back, telling her that he needs more time and for her to kill Carter.
Carter and Jarvis arrive at a house of a woman who doesn't seem to be home. Carter goes inside to look around while Jarvis stands outside to keep watch. A kid shows up and Jarvis pays him to leave as the kid scared him. Carter figures out that this girl is the one they are looking for. Now they just need to know what she looks like.
An agent points out to Thompson that the chief has been talking to the Russian for a long time but he blows him off. Ivchenko starts to hypnotize the chief but Sousa blows into the room ruining the moment to tell the chief about a lead.
Carter and Jarvis have no luck finding out anything about the mystery woman. Agents try to arrest Carter and Jarvis but Carter takes them all out with a bit of help from Jarvis, but really it was just her. She is Cap's number one girl for a reason.
They make it out the back only to be caught by Thompson. He tells her that she is wanted for being seen at the scene of a few murders. She tells him that she can't go in right now and he tells her she doesn't have a choice, she shows him. Knocking his ass out. She tell Jarvis to meet her later while she goes to get Captain America's blood from her house. Sousa blocks her path and arrests her but she tells him no. He lets her go. The chief is not happy that one woman took out all of his highly trained agents.
The chief locks Ivchenko in a room for his own safety with an agent to watch over him. He starts to go to work on the agent. Thompson and Sousa head to Carter's home to try and cut her off, she beats them there but not by long. She doesn't have much time to get the blood and escape. The landlady and her no men allowed attitude tries to keep them out but it is no use.
They get into her room but she had already escaped out of the window. Not much of an escape with nowhere to go, just standing on an edge. She tries to make it to the next room but she almost falls. her friend spots her on the ledge just as the feds knock on her door. Carter tells her that they are looking for her and her friend nods and opens the door. She lies to them to protect Carter. She starts crying and distracting them, showing what a good actress she really is. They lock the landlady up as they continue to look around for Carter. Her friend lets her in.
The agent guarding Ivchenko is brainwashed to take him to the lab to find Starks weapons. He tells him he can't take him to the weapons but he shows him how to escape. Ivchenko orders him to leave, go buy a drink and enjoy it and then kill himself. And the Agent does it. Poor guy.
Dottie stops Carter as she is on her way out and gives her a kiss, thus drugging her. What is this Firefly? She pulls out a knife to kill Carter but Thompson and Sousa find her and tell her to back away. She hides the knife and plays dumb. They take Carter into custody. Dottie is not happy.
Carter finally figured out who she is after but it doesn't do her any good since she has been arrested. She tells them that she can explain everything. Sousa lays out all the evidence he has against her. What an ending!!!! This is how you make tv people! How the hell is this show not coming back for a season 3?
