The seasons have actually closed for most of the CW’s winter favorites, leaving us with one Debutante Covering the slightly-less-silly content. Stargirl finds out her own history in her second episode, while the Legends abandon any pretense of not being the “meta” show, and the TV characters are thrown into TV shows. Hopefully, Mick lands in John Doe and we get a satisfying conclusion to that series. Meanwhile, the House of Ideas debuts the finale season of its debut MCU show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. This season promises to give us some returns of Agent Carter characters while the agents are trapped in the age of men wearing excellent fedoras. In non-comic-based unbelievable shows, the Blindspot team deals with betrayal both in their headquarters and the FBI’s.

This week brings us back-to-back episodes of Marvel’s Agent Carter. Peggy enlists help from an old enemy, Jason Wilkes becomes a force to reckon with, Vernon Masters takes over the office, and Whitney Frost pwns the council.
Jack Thompson remains a wild card. Whose side, exactly, is he on? Dottie, of course, is much wilder.
In true comic-book / action serial fashion, the final episode rushes through a lot of material (glossing over how easily Stark’s name gets cleared, even if his conscience may not be) and gives us too little of the title character, before bringing us to the conclusion of… the series? The first season? Time will tell.
And while I found it ludicrous that two particular characters would be made cell-mates, it made for a great Marvel epilogue and cameo, tying the series in with the future we’ve already watched.
