Agent Carter Season 2 Spoilers  
Nothing too new but a few vague tidbits plus one biggish one (at least for me).


We get to meet Anna!! Hooray!

Also, it looks like Sousa's crush on Peggy might have to wait a bit if she's got other possibilities.

Huzzah for Anna! I hope she's awesome. I would really love the show to keep going with it's turning of tropes by giving Jarvis a loving, happy marriage instead of a cliched awful home life he's trying to escape from. They set up a lot of good potential for a sweet love story and I hope they continue with it.

If it's set in L.A are we going to get a new branch of SSR agents or will we get to keep some of the old ones, I wonder? Do we know who's confirmed as back besides Peggy and Jarvis?

Sousa will also be back. And they're still negotiating with the actors for Angie and Thompson.

However, since the second season takes place a little into the future, they could plausibly have people having changed jobs so no one needs to be tied to the SSR, other than Peggy, I suppose.

Awww, man, if it's in L.A, it'll be hard to get Angie there. Unless she's landed a role in a movie. Which would be adorable.

That's true. And not even her, really, if she and Howard are starting to set up S.H.I.E.L.D. I doubt we'll get Cooper for a full series, but I hope Howard at least has a few cameos or phone calls. There has to be a few actresses in Hollywood Howard hasn't dated yet.

I am so hoping this is the case. Either that or she moves to LA in hopes of getting film roles instead of stage ones. Season 2 is supposed to touch on the Black Dahlia storyline so feasibly Angie knowing the victim could be a way to tell the story.

They also mentioned that the time jump means that some people aren't talking to some people and we slowly find out why. I'm hoping this is more Peggy and Sousa have lost touch or something because either Peggy left or he left rather than Peggy being estranged from Angie or Howard.

Cooper is slated to star in a new series soonish so yes, he probably won't be available for a full season but sure one or two cameos or a phone call would be doable.

Since the show annoyingly used real actresses' names for those who slept with Howard, it seems only fair to name real ones who turned Howard down. Like, Tallulah Bankhead found his over the top wealth-driven behavior amusing, but she'd totally seen better. And Hedy Lamarr liked swapping invention ideas with Howard and being enthusiastic about Science but was so not impressed with his seduction skills.

Yes! I'd like to see or hear about Howard completely failing on some seduction attempt.

And Hedy Lamarr liked swapping invention ideas with Howard and being enthusiastic about Science but was so not impressed with his seduction skills.

Hedy Lamarr and Howard Stark had to have met at some point. It's pretty much impossible that they didn't.

Howard: *walking through the room during movie time* Damn, she was smart.
Maria: That is the first time I've heard you say that in regard to a movie star.
Howard: She wasn't a movie star, she was an inventor who acted. I would have married her if John Loder hadn't gotten there first.
Jarvis: *quietly* Mr Loder was not the obstacle in that situation.
Howard: I heard that.
Maria: So, I'm second choice to Hedy Lamarr?
Howard: Uh...
Maria: No, I'm fine with that. I can live with that.

I know! If I ever write a fic about Howard in Hollywood, I'm going to have to shoehorn in a bit with him and Hedy Lamarr.

Jarvis: *quietly* Mr Loder was not the obstacle in that situation.
Howard: I heard that.


Haha! I can see Jarvis barely holding back a somewhat smug smile when he had to inform Howard that his gifts to Hedy Lamarr have all been returned with a note telling him to stop.

I bet in the MCU there is some biography out there that is just Howard's exploits in Hollywood.

I can only imagine what it must have been like for Maria when she first went out on his arm to celebrity parties.

Maria: Every woman in this room hates you.
Howard: Welcome to Hollywood!
Maria: On the bright side, I have been given the numbers of several divorce lawyers.
Howard: We aren't even married.
Maria: Oh, don't worry, I have regular lawyer's names, too!

I can see Jarvis barely holding back a somewhat smug smile when he had to inform Howard that his gifts to Hedy Lamarr have all been returned with a note telling him to stop.

Ha!

Jarvis: She did, however, wonder if you'd like to take a look at her new frequency jammer.
Howard: Do you think that's euphemism?
Jarvis: Sir, I think it is the complete opposite of a euphemism.

Hahaha! Now I want to give Hedy Lamarr a daemon just to have a moment where Dejeni is trying to be all seductive while Lamarr's daemon keeps pushing gadgets and tools into her hands being all, "Science!"

Dejeni: This might be the one and only time I actually hate science.
Howard: Tell me about it.

Hee!

I don't know much about Lamarr other than what I can glean from her Wiki entry, but she sounds like she would have been a handful. Maybe a kea bird? Those things are super clever and curious, and basically spend their lives doing things no one wants them to do.

In my headcanon, Maria has a big celebrity fantasy crush on Gene Kelly, so now I will add that Howard's big celebrity crush is on Hedy Lamarr, and both Maria and Howard agree that those are acceptable people to be fantasy in love with.

Though, for the record, Howard would still like to say he has better hair than Gene Kelly, even if the dancing isn't quite as good. So, just remember that if you ever get a chance to run away with him. Gene Kelly wears a hairpiece. Howard Stark does not.

That sounds perfect! How about the name Tufan, an Indian name meaning 'storm' or 'tempest.'

Hee! I like how Howard partially operates like one day Maria's fantasy might come tru

Sounds good to me! We have, however, reached the level of daemoning 1940's film stars, a line I mentioned I didn't think I should cross in a meme awhile back when I was talking about Tony and Mim's love of Gene Kelly movies. Go us!

I also like how I've converted you to meaningful daemon naming.


Hee! I like how Howard partially operates like one day Maria's fantasy might come true.


In Howard's world, Gene Kelly stealing your girl is an actual possibility. Not that he would, of course. Kelly's a decent guy. But still...he is a good dancer.

I have a fic where Tony talks about remembering his mom meeting Gene Kelly at a charity party and that he was the only celebrity he ever saw her falter around.

I like to think Howard was relieved that she probably wasn't going to run off with him, because she'd probably need to be able to form words to do that, and all she was doing was squeaking.

Maria: That was the best moment of my life, after having Tony.
Howard: What about meeting me? Marrying me? Making Tony?
Maria: ...tie?
Howard: Fucking Kelly.

While they might not say it, both Maria and Howard are probably relieved that neither has a shot at their celebrity crush. Maria because she can't speak around Gene Kelly and Howard because Hedy Lamarr shot him down so many times that Jarvis felt it prudent to perhaps suggest he give up.

Hee! Awww.

I have a line in a fic where Angie tells Anna she looks like Hedy Lamarr, and now I wish I could retrospectively go back and edit it to give Jarvis some internal thoughts about how grateful he is that Anna is not Hedy Lamarr.

I'd read that we'd meet Anna, and I thought of you! I hope she's as great as I imagine.
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on July 14th, 2015 01:38 am (UTC)
Fingers crossed that she's as great as Jarvis. I have a lot of faith in this show to get characterizations right. They did such a superb job for the first season.
