I popped along to the #ABCStudiosTour event in London yesterday, with the stars of ABC shows that have aired or are airing in the UK, Hayley Atwell from Agent Carter (finally), Clark Gregg from Agents of SHIELD, Sarah Drew from Grey's Anatomy, Mathew Grey Gubler from Criminal Minds and Matt McGory and Alfred Enoch from How to Get Away with Murder.
But because it's me, and I'm here, the first two are going to get my greatest attention, in a room full of folk pretending they haven't actually seen all of Agent Carter via nefarious means.
And I did take the opportunity to ask the two Agents on stage about the possibility of crossing over the two shows aside from the occasional crossover. Clark Gregg said that he would "kill" for a crossover and that he didn't think it was possible to be stabbed by Loki and get his own show.
He talked widely about his love for Agent Carter, valuing it as a period action adventure series with a female lead from a network TV show, challenging the golden age of television that the cable TV shows seem to epitomise, before acknowledging that he was doing anything possible to avoid actually answering the question. His waggling eyebrows however spoke volumes. "I don't know, boy that would be nice."
And Hayley Atwell's comment? Did she want to add anything? "Nope." Though later she would tease…

If I was a betting man, I'd expect Agent Carter to be putting something in a drawer in season two, and for Agent Coulson to pull it out and blow off the dust…
Maybe it could be an ABC goodie bag?
