Although Peggy Carter moved to Los Angeles for season two of Marvel's Agent Carter, she's still up to her old tricks, as seen in a new clip from the first episode of the new season.
In the clip, Peggy attempts to get a tour of the mysterious Isodyne labs, but gets shut down by the receptionist. However, Peggy taps into her resourcefulness and manages to get behind the receptionist's desk while Sousa distracts the receptionist by flirting with her.
Here's the official synopsis for the episode:
"In the season premiere episode, "The Lady in the Lake," Peggy moves to the City of Angels to help Chief Daniel Sousa at the West Coast Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR) investigate a bizarre homicide involving an alleged killer and Isodyne Energy, and reunites with some familiar faces."
The second season of Agent Carter will also feature more Marvel creations in its mix, including the supernatural elements of Doctor Strange's Darkforce.
"That's what Isodyne is, and what you'll learn is they were involved in the nuclear testing out in the desert when they were testing the, at the time they were calling it the atom bomb — and one of these tests didn't go as expected," said showrunner Michele Fazekas to Comic Book Resources. "You'll learn more about that in Season 2, but they stumble upon what people in the Marvel Universe will know as Darkforce, but because they've never seen it before they just name it Zero Matter."
Marvel first explored Darkforce/Zero Matter in the very first episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In that episode, Coulson mentions that Blackout gets his powers from the Darkforce. The Darkforce will also obviously play a large part in the Doctor Strange movie, which releases in November.
"The cool thing about what we learned as we researched Darkforce over the course of Marvel comic book history is, it affects people in different ways," said Fazekas. "It's created a bunch of superheroes, it's created a bunch of villains, and it has all these different properties. It could be a liquid, it could be a gas, it could be a solid, it could give you powers, it could kill you. It has a lot of different applications, which was cool for us. We were able to select what we liked and sort of make our own rules as to what it does, how it operates, and who it affects in our world."
Season two of Marvel's Agent Carter premieres on ABC on Jan. 19.
