Storyline

When Demidov's typewriter sends a message which is encrypted. Carter figures out what it is, a location which they think is a meeting with Stark in Russia. So Dooley sends Thompson to check it out but Carter wants to go. But they won't let her but when she says she can get the Howling Commandos, they let her go. When they get there they discover Stark is not there and something is going on. Dooley talks to someone about Stark who makes him question if Stark is really a traitor. And Sousa through a chance encounter with Carter learns she's the woman they're looking for. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

Writer Jose Molina wanted to promote the character of Dum Dum Dugan from corporal to sergeant, but actor Neal McDonough objected because he wanted to wear the same helmet with insignia he did in 'Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)'. See more »

Goofs

When Carter and the team are about to make the parachute jump, the static lines are still wrapped around their chutes. They should have been hooked to a cable in the aircraft to allow the lines to deploy and eventually open the chutes. See more »

Waaaaaaahoooooooooooooo! Stop "wahooing" and help!

When I saw that the Howling Commandos were in this episode I thought this was going to be Agent Carter's first filler episode. I'm glad I was wrong because this was a good episode with great action, great twists and great character moments.

I was kind of disappointed that there weren't more Commandos from the First Avenger that appeared but the fact that one of these new ones were killed off kind of relieves me that they weren't in the movie. Still, I'm really happy that Dumb Dumb Dugan was the one to appear because Neal McDonough is amazing. The scenes in Russia were incredible as the action was very well done and it looks like this is the start of the Black Widow program, i.e the Red Room, which would make sense for a female led superhero show.

Major kudos to Chad Michael Murray performance this episode as Jack Thompson. We got a look into his character as he has the title of hero that he can flash around but he knows that that isn't who he really is. It shows more into his dynamic that he froze in combat and that he has this extra layer to him that makes him sympathetic. I also love how he respects Carter more, knowing that she is every bit, and maybe more, that agent that he is.

I also liked how the expanded more on the story back in New York as Sousa discovered that Carter was the mystery woman involved with the case. It evolved naturally and came together easily that it didn't seemed forced in any way. Another great episode that reveals more, solves more and remains complex but not complicated. However, I do wish that Jarvis had more to do other than try and speak upon Howard's behalf.

+ Howling Commandos + Murray's performance + Sousa's discovery + Black Widow? - Have Jarvis do more

Final Score: 9.1/10
