Agent Carter

"Time & Tide"

Mrs. Miriam introduced both Peggy and Angie to their newest resident on the Griffith, Dottie Underwood.

"The Blitzkrieg Button"

Dottie ate supper with the other women of the Griffith Hotel as Peggy, Carol, and Angie stuffed purses with food. Underwood asked one tenant to construct for her a purse that could hold pickles. Later that evening, Dottie sees Mink in the hallway, he draws a gun on him. She in unfazed, saying only that she wants his gun. Then she scales the walls like a ninja and in one move, snaps his neck with her legs. That night, Dottie admires her new weapon and hide  Mr. Mink dead body under her bed.

"The Iron Ceiling"

Dottie met with Peggy Carter at the L&L Automat, she expressed her desire to see the city, marking several prominent locations like Central Park and the Empire State Building on a map. In response, Carter stated they were "tourist traps" and recommended Underwood start with Brooklyn instead, to get to know the city's people. Underwood then "accidentally" caused Carter's purse to fall off the table she quickly picked up the items that spilled out, but pocketed the key to Carter's room. Dottie uses Peggy's key to go into her room and search the place. She finds photos of Stark's inventions in Peggy's hidden jewelry box and takes one and observed a photo of pre-serum Steve Rogers. She sits down at Peggy's vanity and briefly assuming Peggy bearing and accent, Dottie exited the room, carefully placing the string that Carter had in the lock as she closed the door. That night Dottie handcuffed herself to the headboard of her bed.

"A Sin to Err"

Dottie arrives downtown and goes to a dentist's office across the street, pretending to be there for a job interview.  During the interview the dentist touched Dottie leg and indicated he wanted a sexual favor from her. She killed him by and then set up a high powered rifle in his office window. Dottie lines up her rifle scope. When Dr. Ivchenko looks out the window she trains it on him, but instead of firing, she flashes him a coded message with the scope reflection. He uses hand signals to message back: "Need more time to get item. New directive Kill Peggy Carter".

Dottie returned to the Griffith Hotel as Strategic Scientific Reserve agents Jack Thompson and Daniel Sousa were leading a raiding party to capture Peggy. She saw Peggy as Peggy was attempting to leave the building. Dottie asked her if she joined her for diner. After Peggy declined Dottie gave her a hug and then suddenly kissed her full on the lips, Dottie had a coating of Sweet Dreams Lipstick on her lips. A suprised Peggy noticed the scar on her wrist from the handcuffs, but then started to pass out. Dottie pulled out her switchblade and prepared to kill Peggy, but got interrupted by Thompson and Sousa seeing them. When Thompson and Sousa saw the unconscious agent, Underwood told them that she found Carter like that. Underwood watched as Carter was arrested.


Dottie went to a store and purchased a baby carriage, telling the salesperson that she wanted a pink blanket to go inside. The salesperson remarked that she must not be far along in her pregnancy, because she was not showing; Underwood silently quipped that she had an arrival coming soon. She then returned to the Dentist Office where Dr. Ivchenko informed her through a Morse code message that she needed to prep for evacuation.

Leaving the office, Underwood saw Agent Sousa pulls a gun on Dottie but she wheels around and kicks it away. He's able to fend her off with a mop and bucket and get his gun back, firing as she runs. Dottie leaps down the stairwell, used the banister of the stairwell to jump down ten flights to the bottom floor. She killed the agent waiting there for her. Dottie procured a car, and met with Dr. Ivchenko who was carrying Item 17. Later, Dottie wheels her baby carriage into a movie theater. She opens the valve on a canister in the carriage and walks out.


Dottie and Dr. Ivchenko drove in the car while they discussed the city, while Dr. Ivchenko is impressed by the city Dottie considers it like any other. A police officer pulled them over as Dr. Ivchenko tells her not to attract attention. Using her innocent persona Dottie managed to convince the officer to not give them a ticket. As the officer prepared to leave his radio informed him to search for a woman matching Dottie her description and the car she is driving. As he went for his gun Dottie quickly held him at gunpoint and captured him. Dr. Ivchenko and Dottie got to the hangar of Howard and she quickly killed an employee who tried to stop them. Dr. Ivchenko learned of the return of Howard Stark and tells her they will go back to the city.

As Howard held a press conference Dottie installed a rigged riffle to shoot at him. She then killed the two police officers at his car and Dr. Ivchenko hypnotized the captured cop to drive Howard away as he flees in the car. Dottie later killed the hypnotized cop and she and Dr. Ivchenko took a captured Howard away by car. Dottie reminded Howard of that they spent a weekend together, as he don't remembered who she was she hits him with the gun.

At the hangar, Dottie beats Howard as he fails to remember her name. At the hangar Dottie tied him to a chair and beats him while he tried to remember her name. Ivchenko confronted Howard and told him how Midnight Oil killed countless Russian soldiers during the war including his brother, while Dr. Ivchenko could only watch. Dr. Ivchenko then hypnotised Howard to make him fly a plane to spread Midnight Oil over the city. Dr. Ivchenko and Dottie staid in contact with Howard over the radio as he flied the plane. Peggy comes in with a shotgun and confronts them. Dottie quickly disarmed her with a kick and knocked the SSR Agent down. Dottie tried to kill her with her switchblade, however, Peggy disarmed her with a sheet. Dottie ordered Dr. Ivchenko to go as she fought Peggy and quickly overpowered her. Dottie mentioned that she used to be jealous at girls like Peggy, however now she can be anyone she wants. Dottie prepared to bludgeon Peggy with a baseball bat, however she manages to kick her out of a broken window. Dottie fell hard on a plane wing and kept laying down while bleeding. When Peggy came down, Dottie's body had disappeared.
