God bless Peggy Carter and Daniel Sousa and Mr. Jarvis and Mrs. Jarvis! And poor, baby Wilkes who isn’t dead because, duh, comic book show! This show is so good! Just so damn good! It was everything I wanted and more (except for the lack of Angie), and there are some really refreshing things happening that are setting us all up for a season that will probably break all of our hearts, but will still be highly entertaining.
Everything is just so bright and fun, and awesome in LA! Well, I mean besides the whole Zero matter, and its terrifying ability to suck in and destroy everything, except for Whitney Frost who…absorbed it?
became part of it maybe?
But still everything is great! Jarvis is hilariously beefing up and chasing after a flamingo, while Ana Jarvis is an actual character she and her husband have an odd, but beautiful relationship. Like how she awkwardly makes out with him in front of company, and how she would totally be into a threesome with Peggy.
Like beyond into it.
I mean yeah Sousa wants to marry a woman that TOTALLY ISN’T PEGGY, and Peggy went on a date that ended immediately with another love interest “missing, presumed dead,” but everything is so much prettier and sunnier in California! Well besides the racism, shady government contingents, and people freezing to death and being blown into a million pieces that is.
Okay, so I might be a little obsessed with how fan-freaking-tastic the show looks, but I swear to you that I did actually watch it for its content as well.
With a beginning like we got, how could I not?
I didn’t know that I missed Dottie so much until I saw her get smashed in the head with a bag of change by Peggy. I also really just hope that she ends up being Peggy’s ultimate nemesis (kind of like the Joker to Peggy’s Batman, if you will). And obviously no one else can even interrogate her like Peggy does, and I don’t why Thompson is still such a Jackhole, but Dottie did put him in his place rather quickly.
If you didn’t underestimate women so much you wouldn’t be in these situations.
His sub-plot with Red from That 70’s Show wasn’t all that exciting besides setting up the inevitable end of SSR to make way for the future S.H.I.E.L.D.
Also, is it bad that I so want Sousa’s girlfriend to be evil or something because I cannot stand to look at his pining puppy dog eyes the second he sees Peggy? And I don’t know if a little “somethin” was going on between those two before Sousa got transferred, but Peggy was kind of pining right back and just cannot deal with another painful ship, please, thank you.
Really though, all I loved about last season came confidently over to this season with the added racial commentary, and sexism within the movie business to fill out the historical aspects that I adored most about last year. I could go on about both, especially on how I find Peggy’s and Whitney Frost’s dynamic supremely interesting given both of their pasts and how they dealt with misogyny, but I have a feeling that spiel will happen with upcoming episodes.
All in all, the show is still as entertaining and compelling as all hell, and I’m just so happy it still exists, so please, for the love of God and Marvel, keep those ratings up!
