“Marvel’s Agent Carter” Season 1, episode 5 will bring back more familiar faces. After Stan Lee’s cameo and Howard Stark’s (Dominic Cooper) return, Marvel fans will be excited to know that more “Captain America” stars are on the way. The Howling Commandos will be by Peggy’s (Hayley Atwell) side in the next episode. However, according to the synopsis for "The Iron Ceiling," someone will intrude on the reunion.
Peggy will be thrilled to finally have an assignment beyond taking lunch orders. Though the synopsis doesn’t say what her exact assignment is, it’s big enough that she “calls upon her trusted Howling Commandos squad for backup.” She’ll be with Dum Dum Dugan (Neal McDonough) and some newer Commandos.
However, as an agent who hasn’t been in the field in some time, Chief Dooley (Shea Whigham) decides she needs one of the SSR’s men. “Her cover could be at risk when SSR Chief Dooley also sends Agent Jack Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) with her,” the synopsis teases.
Unfortunately for Peggy, Jack likely won’t be easy to work with. He questioned why Peggy even continued to work at the SSR in episode 4. He claimed that women in the work place weren’t part of the “natural order.” Peggy apparently doesn’t just have a glass ceiling to break through; she has to break through “The Iron Ceiling,” which is the title of the episode. Her mission with Jack might prove to him once and for all that she belongs in the SSR.

Dottie (Bridget Regan) wasn’t included in the synopsis, but Regan is indeed listed as a guest star. “Marvel’s Agent Carter” will likely give the audience some more clues about who she is and maybe explain where those martial arts moves came from.
