She's Electrifying: After lurking in the air vent and overhearing Whitney Frost say she wants an atomic bomb, Peggy and the gang figure out her plan and are on a mission to stop Whitney from setting off the bomb. In disguise, Peggy pokes around Hugh Jones' office searching for the key to the facility that houses the bombs. Peggy uses the Memory Inhibitor on Jones so as not to get caught.
Carter v. Frost: Peggy and Whitney go head to head when Whitney is furious that Agent Carter is interfering with her plans. The two battle it out, with Whitney having the upper hand... literally. With her unusual strength, Whitney's touch is no match for Peggy, who gets terribly injured.
Violet Knows: While Sousa continues to pine over Peggy, his heart ultimately belongs to Violet - so much so that he proposes to her. However, his true feelings come to light when Peggy is injured and it becomes apparent to his new fiance that Sousa may have twisted the truth about the reason he came to California. She knows he is clearly still in love with Peggy.
Goodbye, Again: While recovering from her injury, Peggy and Wilkes share a moment together. Unfortunately, their moment is cut short when Wilkes begins to fade away while a helpless Peggy could only watch as he would fade in and out before disappearing altogether. Where did he go? And more importantly, could it have to do with what happened with the tissue sample from Jane Scott's autopsy?
