Geek TV reviews, recaps and more!
As you know, we have been recapping Marvel’s Agent Carter on the Peggy Carter Podcast. Over the last eight weeks we have been tracking our theories about Dr. Ivchenko, Howard, Jarvis, Item 17 and a lot more. With the finale mere hours away, I wanted to share some of my theories before all is revealed!
I rewatched all seven episodes in the last twenty four hours, so everything is fresh. Up to this point everything has been leading to Leviathan. Leviathan robbed the vault, Leviathan planted Dr. Ivchenko in the SSR, Leviathan sent Dottie to take out Peggy and any other threat to their plan.
While all of this true, there are a few threads I have overlooked. Maybe it’s because Dottie and Ivchenko are now enemy number one that no one is thinking about the other people that could be connected to the bigger plot.
Let’s take a look at all the threads that have been set up so far:
All of these details have led me to believe the following:
Howard Stark was appalled at what happened in Finnow and hid all of his tech. Whoever was overseeing the Finnow project wanted Item 17 and either hired Leviathan to track it down, or is Leviathan. I believe in the finale we will see Dottie and Faustus attempt to set off the device in the heart of New York City, but I’m not sure why… Maybe it will be to act as a divertion? Maybe they want access to something and need all of the city to be fighting themselves so they can get it? While I don’t understand Leviathan’s end game, I am very excited to see the reveal of who is behind all of this. Is it a Senator or government official? Or is it Leviathan working alone? Will we get a glimpse of Hydra lurking somewhere behind the scenes?
I know a lot of people, myself included, are hoping for a second season. Thankfully the showrunners of Agent Carter have promised an ending that leaves itself open to a season two. If you would like a second season make sure to watch live tonight, record it on your DVRs and watch it again, watch it a few times on Hulu, download the episodes on iTunes, and tweet using the hashtag #AgentCarter a lot when you are tweeting tonight!
The finale airs in 90 mins on the East Coast and in 3 1/2 hours on the West Coast. Tweeting helps. Telling your friends to watch it helps. While this may be the last episode we get of this fantastic show this season, I am confident we will get a second season soon!
