'Agent Carter' is dropping its first season finale hint
zap2it / By Terri Schwartz / Feb 03rd, 2015
Don't get distracted by the arrival of the Howling Commandos or the fact that Dottie is a Black Widow in "Marvel's Agent Carter's" Feb. 3 episode. While those might be awesome, more flashy plot points, it turns out Edwin Jarvis is the man viewers should be keeping an eye on.
James D'Arcy tells Zap2it that "there's something that happens with Jarvis where he becomes privy to, or he's let in on, a piece of information which is going to start to shape how the end of the season plays out."
It's pretty easy to pinpoint the moment; it comes midway through the episode, and there are plenty of tense undertones to signify its importance. But even knowing that the scene is key to the season finale, don't think your gut response to the information provided is the right one.
"I'll be honest with you, there's no possible way you can guess how it would play out in the end," D'Arcy says. "But we are now starting to hit our stride. I wouldn't say it's a sprint for the finish line quite yet, but it's going to get progressively more and more intense as the episodes continue." (For what it's worth, it's likely something to do with a certain name said to Jarvis.)
"Agent Carter" recently wrapped Season 1, which means D'Arcy is a keeper of the series' secrets. Though he says he had "long since given up on having theories" before receiving the final episode script, he feels the finale will service all of the various storylines the show has been telling, from Howard Stark's bad babies to Peggy Carter's loss of Captain America to the way people are struggling to adapt after the war.
"It's just really clever the way they tie it up. It's very satisfying, very clever -- and not, I think, what you'll be expecting to happen," he says. "We kind of killed the show at the end of the third episode because it looked like it was going to be we're going to find one of the bad babies every week until the end of the season and then suddenly in the third episode we found everything, so now the show has to be about something else. What is this show going to be about? The beauty of it is I don't know if you'll be able to guess."
Beyond dropping a hint that no one will be able to figure out about where the season is heading, D'Arcy says Jarvis also is an "inadvertent spur" as to why Peggy turns to the Howling Commandos. "The way we've left it, Peggy's pretty isolated right in this moment," he says. "The beginning of this episode is really set up by that which is her increasing isolation leads her into a sort of desperate place where she ends up actually standing up for herself at work, and Jarvis is instrumental in that happening."
The new episode will finally give viewers the insight into Jack Thompson that Chad Michael Murray already teased to Zap2it. "In this next episode, you are going to find out some really good character stuff about Agent Thompson," D'Arcy says. "There's a very, very moving situation, and you'll find out about who he is and what makes him tick and all the rest of it. This is the backdrop of a fantastic action episode, real adventure -- you can't breathe because it moves so quickly -- and yet somehow they manage to interweave this incredibly moving subplot about Agent Thompson."
It's that successful balance between character and action adventure that D'Arcy says he has most enjoyed about the show. "I think whether you're a Marvel fan or just a fan of this show, I think you are going to get to the end of the eighth episode and feel really happy that you stayed with it," he promises.
