Find Out When Agent Carter Is Returning To Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

If the Season 2 premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. wasn’t enough to satisfy your need for Peggy Carter until her show debuts next year, not to worry. She’s coming back for round 2. It’s been revealed that the November 18 episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., titled “The Things We Bury,” will feature another appearance from Haley Atwell as Carter.

This episode will see Phil Coulson and his team in an “epic face-off” while Grant Ward kidnaps his brother Senator Christian Ward to revisit their past. Marvel is staying tightlipped on what her exact role in the episode will be, but if the season 2 premiere is any indication, it will likely be another flashback scene.

In the premiere, Carter was seen with Dum Dum Dugan, Jim Morita and other U.S. soldiers seizing a Hydra base from Werner Reinhardt, who is operating in the present as Daniel Whitehall. Among the many items they confiscated was an unusual blue body (Kree, anybody?) and the Obelisk, an extraterrestrial device that turns anyone who touches it into stone. The Obelisk has been an important plot device throughout the season, and it’s possible that even though Carter and her men boxed up all the Hydra contraband, it wasn’t her last experience with the unusual artifact. Considering the battle between the S.H.I.E.L.D. team and Hydra that viewers will witness, it’s also possible that Carter will be seen in her own battle between Hydra and the Strategic Scientific Reserve during World War II. Those two conflicts would parallel each other nicely.

The added advantage of including Carter in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is getting its audience ready for Agent Carter. Last week, ABC aired a 15 second trailer for the eight-episode limited series, and it’s possible that the network will grace us with a longer trailer during her appearance on November 18. While Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is on hiatus in January, Agent Carter will follow Peggy as she accustoms herself to post-war life and performs secret missions for Howard Stark. Peggy will also return to the movie side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year when she appears in Ant-Man.

It’s also worth noting this episode will also star Lou Ferrigno Jr., son of the man who played the Hulk in the 1978 TV series The Incredible Hulk. Ferrigno Jr. will play Agent Hauer, although it isn’t clear whether Hauer is a present-day agent or one of Carter’s associates from the 1940s. Either way, don’t expect Hauer to get bombarded with gamma radiation and turn into an unusually colored rage monster. That honor is only reserved for one member of the family.
