Recap and Review

*Warning Contains Spoilers*

 

At the end of A Sin to Err, Peggy Carter was arrested by the SSR, taken into custody, and thought to be a traitor in the worst way.  So with that piece of information alone, I knew that Snafu would be a great episode.  What I didn’t expect was how they would leave me begging for more.  By the end of the hour, I was completely needing more time.  So lets talk about the hour that was Snafu.

We all knew that the doctor from the Russian rescue was bad news, from A Sin to Err.  But the opening scene for this week just proved how much and just what he could do.  I went from worried, to pure terrified.  What will this doctor do our SSR team?  How will he use his powers against them?  By the end, we saw it was for nothing but his and Leviathans own gain.  But we can talk about that more later.

The integration scenes were incredible.  The way the crew cut the scenes together, the actors were flawless, but at the end, Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter was perfect.  The way she defended herself and put each of the agents in their place was perfect.  I think that Sousa making it seem like Peggy is more than a common whore is low.  Which I’m so glad that Peggy puts him in his place.

Jarvis, just waltzing in to the SSR headquarters was just pure gold.  I guessed that he was just making it up as he went, but I think that speaks volumes to his loyalty.  Jarvis would rather risk himself to save Carter.  While it seems that, this is the easiest way to get Carter out of the line of prosecution.  But in the end, it didn’t matter.  She was still able to convince Jack finally that what she was saying was true.

In the end, Peggy is able to convince the men of the SSR—Dooley, Jack and Sousa—that she is telling the truth.  She has to give up Steve’s blood in order to convince them.  But she does.  It’s heartbreaking when she’s giving them the last remaining part of Steve.  While we know he’s okay now, she doesn’t know that.  She is giving away the love of her life.  That is what it takes to make Jack and Sousa at least check into what she is saying.

Dottie and her evil doings were evil and brilliant.  I hate to call Dottie brilliant, but she seems to be the complete equal to Peggy.  And that in fact makes her brilliant.  She knows how to play everyone around her.   She had Peggy convinced she was just a girl from the Midwest.  The ways she plays each and every person shows what a devious spy she is.  What she did at the movie theater was horrendous.  Horrendous.  To say I’m excited for the next episode is wrong, I’m very intrigued by it, but I don’t want to see how far she is willing to go.  It will be great to see Peggy and Dottie in a show down.  The show down of last night between Dottie and the SSR team was impressive.  I don’t know what Sousa though when she scaled down the stairs.

Oh, Dooley.  I think that his character has been a needed bad guy.  He runs a bullpen, trying to get things solved.  Seeing how Peggy is coming into his man worlds and it’s unsettling for him.  Now no matter how much I didn’t like his character, it doesn’t mean that I was ready to see him go down like that.  I knew the doctor was bad news, but to see what he did to Chief Dooley was unspeakable.  But in those final moments, his actions were so admirable.  He was able to tell Jack and Peggy what they needed to know had happened.  How the doctor was able to use him to get what he need.

Any person knowing that their final moments are upon them, they will take the time to send messages to those they love.  But for me what really stood out, was how he looks at Peggy and said, “atta girl.”  For me what that meant, was he validated her and her actions.  He took the time to make it right with her.  Also in that moment, he seemed to be asking her to avenge his death.  To get the people who caused it.  It seemed like the perfect way to go out.  To watch him die like that was horrible.  But to know that he took the time to make it right and send his love to his family made it a bit easier to take.

I felt so badly for Peggy when she began to blame herself.  It made me flash to after Bucky was killed in Captain America the First Avenger.  The good guy is always feel so badly, about what has happened.  It always cuts them so deeply that they believe it is all on them.

This episode was so good, and so powerful.  It makes me so sad that there is only one more this season.  While a second season hasn’t been confirmed, I’m so hopeful that one will happen.  Remember that the ratings have not been specular.  So watching OnDemand or on Hulu is what you need to do, for it to count.

Army Wives/Agents of SHIELD

January 28, 2015

Story Time

So I’m re-watching Army Wives.  It’s something I do on Netflix while I’m doing other Internet tasks.  When boom a familiar face shows up.   It’s Brett Dalton, who plays Grant Ward on the ABC show “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.”  AOS is a show that I run a website for.  (AOSFans.com) So seeing his face was a big time shock!  brett dalton

Immediately I paused it, did a screen shot and just had to do a story time post.  So if I recall right, he’s the bad guy in this episode. Bad guy with a sweet face.  AOS casting really hit the mark on it’s job.

It’s really amazing what you find when you go back and watch things again.

Love is in the air on Friday’s Girl Meets World (Disney Channel, 8:30/7:30c) — at least Cory and Riley hope it is when they scheme to set Shawn up on a date with Maya’s mom.

TVLine has a pair of exclusive shots from tomorrow’s episode, appropriately titled “Girl Meets Master Plan,” in which Team Matthews attempts to play matchmaker. But why is Maya tied up in the second photo? Could she be trying to put a stop to her mother’s rendezvous with Shawn?

Also, question for the group: Do we like the idea of Shawn dating Maya’s mom — and potentially becoming her stepfather down the line — or are we still holding out hope for an appearance from Angela?
