Another rip-roaring episode of Agent Carter, with Peggy continuing her investigations into the secretive Isodyne Energy company and its connection to the murder of the "lady in the lake".
Through her charming contact Jason Wilkes (Reggie Austin), Peggy learns of the company's experiments with "zero matter", the unexpected by-product of a post-war nuclear test in the Mojave Desert that didn't go exactly according to plan.
Film footage of the event suggests that the explosion may have ripped a hole in reality (or created a temporary black hole) and Wilkes believes the bizarre "zero matter" could have an extraterrestrial or even extradimensional origin (is this the hinted at connection to the impending Dr Strange movie?).
Unfortunately, while Peggy and Wilkes are pursuing this line of inquiries, Isodyne's boss, Calvin Chadwick (Currie Graham), meets with the members of the secret society backing him, and they tell him to pull the plug on his "zero matter" experiments because of the heat it's attracting, and to concentrate on his senate campaign instead.
Chadwick's film-star wife Whitney Frost (Wynn Everett) has other ideas though and gets to the Isodyne labs at the same time at Peggy and Wilkes, intent on acquiring the "zero matter" for her own ends.
A textbook example of tight scripting, A View In The Dark manages to juggle multiple plots and sub-plots (such as Sousa's plan to propose to his gal, and Peggy's growing attraction to Wilkes), character development, action, comedy, and exposition, without slowing up or feeling bloated.
And it looks as though we may have witnessed the birth of Madame Masque.
