Marvel’s Agent Carter Recap: Season 2 Episode 4 “Smoke and Mirrors”

On last night's all-new Marvel's Agent Carter season 2 episode 4, "Smoke and Mirrors" (originally airing February 2, 2016), Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell) and the SSR learn there’s more than just a pretty face behind Hollywood star Whitney Frost, Peggy’s most dangerous foe yet. For more intel on Agent Carter, access the Marvel's Agent Carter recap Field Report below for the "Smoke and Mirrors" episode.

Is That a Threat?: After consciously committing a felony and interrogating Whitney Frost's henchman, Mr. Hunt, Peggy and Sousa realize they have just enough information to raid the Arena Club. Unfortunately, their raid is crashed by Vernon Masters and his men. Vernon takes Peggy aside and when she refuses to give him information, he threatens her and her friends - particularly Sousa. 


Older Brother: In a flashback to her engagement party, we meet Peggy's older brother, Michael. After meeting Peggy's fiance for the first time, Michael reveals to his sister that he was the one who recommended her for the S.O.E. spy job that she turned down. When Peggy asks him why, he tells her he knows that being married and settling down isn't what she wants in life; since they were kids, she's always wanted a life of adventure. 


Peggy's Choice: In another flashback, Peggy is in her wedding dress and getting ready for her big day. Her mother is summoned to the front door and given the tragic news: Michael has been killed in the line of duty. Devastated at the news of her brother, she makes a life-changing choice, calling off her wedding and accepting S.O.E. job as Michael advised her. 


Fixing a Mistake: After fleeing from Peggy and Sousa, Hunt runs to Whitney and Chadwick's home - which was all a part of the plan. As Peggy, Sousa, Jarvis and Wilkes listen in on their conversation, Hunt admits to Whitney and Chadwick that he gave Peggy names. Whitney is furious and "fixes" the mistake in the best way she knows how, leaving Peggy and the gang stunned.
