Marvel.com has released the official episode descriptions for “Agent Carter’s” two-hour series premiere on January 6. The two episodes, “Now is Not the End” and “Bridge and Tunnel” put Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) on a mission to clear Howard Stark’s (Dominic Cooper) name after he is framed for putting dangerous weapons out into the world.
In the episode “Now is Not the End,” Peggy is contacted by old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”) when he is framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons and can trust no one else. To help Peggy clear Stark’s name, he insists his butler, Edwin Jarvis, be at her beck and call–whether she likes it or not. But the risk is great: If caught, Agent Carter could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison…or worse.
In the episode “Bridge and Tunnel,” Howard Stark’s deadliest weapon has fallen into enemy hands, and only Agent Carter can recover it. But can she do so before her undercover mission is discovered by SSR Chief Dooley and Agent Thompson?
Both episodes have a number of guest stars, including Lyndsy Fonseca as Angie, Andre Royo as Spider Raymond, Kyle Bornheimer as Agent Ray Krzeminiski, Ashley Hinshaw as Colleen O’Brien, James Frain as Leet Brannis, Bill Kalmenson as Senator Webster, Lesley Boone as Rose, Costa Ronin as Anton Vanko and many more.
“Now is Not the End” was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and directed by Louis D’Esposito. “Bridge and Tunnel” was written by Eric Pearson and directed by Joe Russo.
“Agent Carter” debuts January 6 on ABC.
