Synopsis for Agent Carter S02E04 Smoke and Mirrors Podcast
Directed by: David Platt
Written by: Sue Chung
In a series of flashbacks to the early lives of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) and Agnes Cully (aka Whitney Frost) we see two exceptional and talented women reflected back at one another: Both driven, both out of their time and both know their value! On the one hand Agnes Cully (Wynn Everett), from Oklahoma – brilliant with an inventive mind and who feels held back from academic success due to her gender that is until the Hollywood door is opened with use of her good looks and charm; and on the other hand, Peggy Carter, from Hampstead in England, who forges a career in the field with the Special Operations Executive (S.O.E) in spite of a stifling fiance Fred Wells (Kevin Changaris) and the tragic death of her much loved brother Michael Carter (Max Brown). Meanwhile back in 1947, Whitney Frost begins to experiment with her new found power as Carter and Jarvis (James D’Arcy) attempt to learn more about Frost and Chadwick (Currie Graham) by kidnapping their bodyguard – Mr Hunt (Chris Browning). Following the interrogation of Hunt, he is bugged and allowed to escape where they track him back to Senator Chadwick’s apartment. As he attempts to blackmail Chadwick in exchange for protection Frost reveals her dangerous secret, and proves once and for all that she is more than just a pretty face.
