Agent Carter looks like it's going to be pretty good.  I thought that Hayley Atwell was fantastic in Captain America - The First Avenger.  I'm hoping that for the sake of continuity Howard Stark also gets included in the mix.  He seemed to be an integral part of the first Cap movie.  And if they can get Tommy Lee Jones, too?  That would be fantastic.

As for last night's episode?  It still seems like there's a whole lot bubbling under the surface.  Just WHAT is Skye's father?  It looked like he was about to transform into something but it stopped.  Whitehall got taken out, although it did seem a little anti-climactic.  And then the events down below?  Well, some of the showrunners seem to know how to leave the audience wanting more.

Does that mean Skye's dad joins forces with a guy that looks like Serpentor from GI Joe?

Well they sure did good in this episode & it keeps getting better, can't wait till March!

---------->  Skye aka Daisy Johnson "Quake"...  Raina aka Raina Earth-616... the Inhumans.  As for Trip aka B.J. Brit, hard to say for a dead person that is rumored to be in Avengers: Age of Ultron & it has also been mentioned that Agents of Shield will lead into AoU like they did with Captain America.

For the time being, bring on Agent Carter!  8)

Well, seeing as how they only killed one of the 5 people I wanted to see get snuffed (Whitehall/Ward/Skye'sDad/Raina/Agent 33) I was a little bummed, but I get that they want to keep stringing those characters out for whatever reason.

Surprised Mac survived and Tripp did not. Killed off the wrong guy, IMHO, he will be missed.

Also curious what happened to Raina at the end there.

If you pause the footage you can make out her face in the shadows, but it's definitely hard to see what she/it is now.  Definitely not the woman in the flower dress any longer though...

It was a really good episode.  I'm kinda upset that I read about the characters online - probably would have enjoyed Skye's progression more had I not spoiled it for myself.

Just looking at what happened in that chamber with Skye and Tripp?  It looked like Raina was affected much in the same way that Skye was.  Skye wound up in a cocoon, it would seem.  If the same thing happened to Raina it makes sense since we already know that she can hold the Diviner without being killed.

Somehow, I have a feeling Trip isn't truly dead.
This is the way.

He did kinda crumble.  I don't see how he's coming back from that.

The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Rumors are circulating about a certain SHIELD Agent who may work their way into the ABC series.  He's been referenced in the show, and it could lead to an interesting crossover into some upcoming MCU projects.

Glad to see the way Agent Carter has wrapped up.  A short season like this really does play well.  I think the British have it right in keeping their television seasons short and sweet,  A 20+ episode season can get somewhat bloated.

Hayley Atwell is fantastic as Peggy Carter.  She reminds you of some of the best aspects of Captain America - The First Avenger and keeps things grounded in that world.  Dominic Cooper has also been great in expanding the realization of Howard Stark.  He was an interesting character in the first Cap film and we got to see some small snippets of him in the Iron Man films.  But here he seems like the Howard Hughes genius inventor/business tycoon sort of character that I think he was intended to be.  And Jarvis?  I think he's been very well realized.  I almost didn't recognize the actor until I IMDB'd him and found that he was also in Master & Commander.  But I think the character gives some great insight into the personality of Tony Stark's J.A.R.V.I.S. artificial intelligence.

The way the season has run it looks like we're building more and more towards the official founding of SHIELD.  The SSR seems like it was more of a classic government intel/law enforcement agency, and far less sophisticated than the SHIELD we came to know in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  It also seems like we got some keen insight into some of the background of the Black Widow project with Dottie and her "classmates".  And now with her on the run and Doctor Faustus in custody?  And Zola as his cellmate?  That's another interesting tie-in to the Cap films and the eventual infiltration of Hydra into SHIELD.

I'm hopeful that another season of Agent Carter will be coming to spell us while Agents of SHIELD is on hiatus.  Because we're essentially getting a great look at two distinct eras of SHIELD.

I agree.  I loved Agent Carter.  Lots of cool nods to references made in the films.  I think the shorter season was perfect, no filler, no stretching.  I was also impressed that they didn't get her right into another relationship right away. 

Anyone looking for well written, strong female characters needs to watch this show.
