Agent Carter EP Teases Stark's Betrayal — Plus: An Exclusive Sneak Peek

This Tuesday on Marvel’s Agent Carter (ABC, 9/8c), Howard Stark resurfaces — though as hinted in promos, it’s not entirely “Happy to see me” for him and Peggy.

During the series’ presentation at this month’s Television Critics Association press tour, an extended clip of Peggy railing at Howard in the episode “The Blitzkrieg Button” was shared, raising the question: What could possibly make Stark’s calm, cool covert operative so atypically emotional?

“There may be reasons why he reached out to her at the beginning that he was not entirely truthful about,” Agent Carter EP/Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb told TVLine after that screening. “What he really wants and what really happened that night [when Stark’s ‘bad babies’ were stolen], and what he’s been accused of, all comes to a boil.”

Especially when Peggy learns the true, close-to-home-hitting nature of one of Stark’s stolen-and-recovered gizmos. “A very big secret will come out,” Loeb teased.

That reveal — coming on the heels of the SSR (with Peggy’s help) having reclaimed Stark’s entire toy trove — will set the tone for the midseason drama’s final episodes. “James [D’Arcy, who plays Jarvis] was very accurate where he said [at TCA] that people probably watched the first two episodes and thought, ‘This is the Go Get the Gadget of the Week Show.’ And then we found all the gadgets,” Loeb noted. “So now what happens?”

As you form theories about the nature of Stark’s betrayal, watch this exclusive sneak peek of Tuesday’s opening scene:

    Having watched on a whim, I am thoroughly enjoying Agent Carter. Is this what they meant for AoS to be like? So fun and entertaining! Hope they bring it back next year with a few more eps.

      I’m Enjoying it as well , and hope it comes back next year , but more episodes might hurt the series , it’s the reason why AoS failed, they had like 15 bad episodes to burn off before they could get to the good stuff at the end of the season, television is so much better when it’s shorter, no room for filler episodes and besides it’s what these British actors are used to, You’d be hard pressed to find a UK show longer than 12 episodes

    Love, love, love this show. It’s got to have a second season! (Not going to lie, I wish it wasn’t on broadcast tv and subject to antiquated ratings.)

    Good scoop about new episode & sneak peek clip. Can’t wait to watch new episode tomorrow!

    While I like 22 episodes, they do have filler and Marvel’s films sometimes limit action on AoS until the movie is released. Fringe’s final season was so intense. Each episode was very strong. So far, Agent Carter seems to be moving and I would like to see a second season.

    ABC might think about running both shows at 15 episodes with no breaks to keep the pace of the shows at their highest.
