"Agent Carter" Showrunners Explain Peggy's Friendship with Jarvis, Madame Masque's Role
Comic Book Resources: Tue, January 12th, 2016 at 9:59am PST by Amy Ratcliffe, Contributing Writer
Peggy and Edwin's relationship remains important in "Agent Carter's" second season, as will her new friendship with his wife, Ana
The change in locale rings with it some familiar faces, along with more than a few new ones as well. Ahead of the Marvel Television series' return on Jan. 19, CBR News spoke with "Agent Carter's" showrunners and executive producers Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters about Peggy's allies and enemies, the new problems she'll encounter while investigating around Hollywood, and how the series will continue to flesh out the Marvel Cinematic Universe, even delving into territories "Doctor Strange" is preparing to explore..
The initial previews indicate that Jarvis seems bored and not terribly in love with Los Angeles.
Fazekas: Jarvis has a nice arc over the course of the season. He really got a taste for adventure with Peggy in the first season, so, when she comes back into his life, he's so happy because he's so bored with being Howard Stark's butler and setting up Howard's Beverly Hills estate. He's begging her, "Please let me come out and help you."
It's interesting -- to sort of back away from it for a second -- we really believe that the Peggy/Jarvis relationship is the center relationship of the show, and it's a challenge as a writer because, he's not in the SSR, he's a butler. How do you tell stories with those two in a way that doesn't feel like you're jamming them together because you want them in scenes together? The great thing about moving the story to L.A. is, it's a really organic way to include Stark and include Jarvis. We said, "Howard has moved to L.A. because there's a scientific community. Howard's going to move his operations, do some contract work for the government, and also open up a movie studio in his spare time. Jarvis is out here for that setting up stage." And then, if he's the one who's saying, "I want to come out and help you," then OK, great, now we're on.
But what that starts is a really interesting story for him, which is, how much did he really understand about what Peggy does? For him, it's like a fun diversion, even though he's in danger and even though his life is threatened. For Peggy, it's her job, and it's exacted a real cost. She lost her roommate in the pilot, she lost Steve in the movie. She sees it as a really different thing, and we will see in Jarvis' story how he grows to understand that and where he comes out in the end. It will have a cost for him, and it will have an impact on his relationship with Peggy because at a certain point, she has the right to say, "This is not a frivolous thing. This is my job, and there's a real consequence to it." It provided a lot of great drama and conflict. There's a place for Jarvis to go. He actually, I would argue, has probably more of an arc in this season than he did last season.
As far as Peggy's allies are concerned, one of the additions is Ana Jarvis. Can you talk about the decision to bring her in and what her dynamic with Peggy will be like?
Fazekas: We'd always intended on meeting Ana, but it didn't really fit into the story we were telling in the first season. We wanted to be really specific about who the woman is that Jarvis is just madly in love with -- which is why I think Jarvis and Peggy can have the relationship they have, where there's no weirdness or sexual tension, because you never question if he loves his wife. They can have this very close relationship and love each other, but there's no, "will they or won't they?" So when we were thinking about, "Well, who would he marry?" we really wanted her to be unexpected.
It makes sense in that, Jarvis likes Peggy Carter, so of course the woman he's in love with would not be a quiet, prim and proper lady. She would be someone different, someone who challenges him, someone who excites him. We also wanted to be very clear that Peggy and Ana really like each other, and that there's no jealousy from Ana. Ana and Jarvis are so comfortable in their relationship, they're not going to be jealous of other people coming in and out of their lives.
