Season 2 had some merits, but overall wasn’t quite as well executed as season 1. Although I am sad the show was cancelled - there were some loose ends to tie up and a cliffhanger to resolve! The best part of season 2 was of course Peggy Carter herself. She’s still an excellent character with more intelligence, drive and guts than the rest of her work collegues, who this series respect her a lot more (hooray). Peggy also has a sensitivity and vulnerability, demonstrated this series through flashbacks of her life before the SSR and her developing relationships between the other characters. Her bantering/comedic friendship between herself and Mr Jarvis is still what holds the show together and I can easily see those two getting a spin off based on their super chemistry. The other characters of Sousa, Thompson, Rose, Wilkes, Samberly and Ana Jarvis were all great. I loved Ana and her relationship with Jarvis and Peggy was fantastic. Not all characters had quite enough development this season, but they still all played their parts well and each had their own distinct personalities and diffferent reasons for wanting to help Peggy. Villian from season 1 Dottie Underwood returns briefly and combined with season 2′s villian Whitney Frost, there was anough danger and suspense to keep all the characters moving forwards to the end goal of keeping the city safe. The plot was where this season fell down on, there was a secret council of old white men and a substance called ‘zero matter’ (a contradiction in itself) controlled by a physisit /actress Whitney Frost who wanted power because no one listened to her etc... it was a bit flimsy at times, and ‘invention ex machina’ was used to solve most problems. The entire season was set in LA/Hollywood but aside a few very direct references, it could have been any city in the US - some areas of the show felt a little under utilised, but considering it was only 10 episodes long, I’ll make some allowances. Overall Agent Carter was a fun watch, but nearly as dazzling as it could have been. A bit of script tightening, and a little more plot and more of a focus on Peggy’s overall story (and that of her friends) might have just clinched a third season for the show. Either way I shall certainly miss having such a dynamic and interesting female character on the screen. Peggy Carter I am a huge fan of you ♥
