She may have broken our hearts by leaving social media, but never fear; Hayley Atwell will be back in our lives and living rooms in less than two weeks. Marvel’s Agent Carter returns with a two-hour premiere January 19th and boy howdy, is she ready to kick ass. From the looks of this new promo, Peggy hauled her entire well-stocked arsenal out to L.A. and she’s breaking out every last weapon for those pesky Californians. (Damned hippies; who can blame her?) You’ll also spy the return of Dominic Cooper’s Howard Stark, James Darcy’s Edwin Jarvis, and newcomers Reggie Austin (as Peggy’s love interest, Jason Wilkes) and Outlander’s Lotte Verbeek (as Ana Jarvis). Check it:

Here’s the full second series synopsis:

“Dedicated to the fight against new Atomic Age threats in the wake of World War II, Agent Carter journeys from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous - and bizarre - assignment yet. East Coast SSR Chief Jack Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) sends Peggy to work with newly appointed West Coast SSR Chief Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) to explore a strange homicide involving a body that glows and emanates cold.

Upon her arrival, Peggy reunites with Howard Stark’s (Dominic Cooper) butler and her loyal partner-in-crime, Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy), who welcomes her to the Hollywood life and sets her up at Stark’s mansion. There, Peggy meets Ana (Lotte Verbeek), Jarvis’ free-spirited and devoted wife to whom she takes an immediate liking.

Eventually, the odd investigation leads Peggy to quirky yet charming scientist Jason Wilkes (Reggie Austin), who quickly becomes an ally — and sparks fly. As Peggy continues to find clues in this peculiar case, she is introduced to the machinations of Whitney Frost (Wynn Everett), a movie starlet, brilliant physicist and the true power behind husband and senatorial candidate Calvin Chadwick (Currie Graham). Calvin, a politician who will do anything to get to the top, befriends Vernon Masters (Kurtwood Smith), a veteran of the War Department with a keen understanding of how to work the system. Peggy soon discovers that corruption seemingly runs deep, making it hard to distinguish the good versus the bad.

The search comes full circle when Russian spy Dottie Underwood (Bridget Regan) returns into Peggy’s life in a new and unexpected way. But even as Peggy discovers a new city, both old and new friends - and potentially a new love - she’s about to learn the bright lights of post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.”

In another bit of great news, Lyndsy Fonseca is confirmed to return as Angie Martinelli, though the circumstances are different than you might expect.

***Spoilers for Season 2****

Executive producer Michele Fazekas described the friends reuniting through a black and white dream sequence, featuring a Dancing with the Stars crossover.

“Episode 8 ends with a cliffhanger where Peggy and Jarvis get in big trouble and are knocked out. Episode 9 begins with a dream sequence that starts in black and white — by the way, [Atwell] was made for black and white. She looks like Rita Hayworth. She looks spectacular.”

The dream includes a number choreographed by and starring DwtS cast members, with Angie speaking as Peggy’s conscience, “…speaking the things that Peggy maybe can’t say to herself. It ties things back together from the first season and it’s connecting all of these things in a way that only a dream can do.”

***End Spoilers***

Wait, did she just say Hayley Atwell and James D’Arcy are going to do a dance sequence together?
