“The Iron Ceiling” | Agent Carter
“What would Cap say if I left his best girl behind?”
“He would say do as Peggy says.”
Somewhere in the world you could hear Steve Rogers and all Peggy Carter fans exclaim: “damn right!” And what makes this scene worthy of being this week’s TV moment is a badass woman knowing her worth. At the end of the day however, what I loved most about the scene is that Peggy Carter not only values her worth, but she confidently knows that Steve Rogers does too. It’s a great reminder of how honest their relationship was and the fact that Steve Rogers was noble enough to see her as more than his equal. He gave her full credit for her abilities as the woman he loves and an agent he needs. And the fact that the line “his best girl” was brought back is priceless. Also heartbreaking, it’s indescribably heartbreaking.
Additionally, it’s an absolute marvel to watch Peggy Carter kick ass week after week, thus the scene was nothing short of a phenomenal one. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, this is one of the most difficult shows to review because it’s one great scene after another. And as someone who’s fond of detail, I could spend pages talking about how one little moment was complete and utter perfection.
