Warning: Spoilers Ahead

It’s 1946 and Peggy Carter is in for a rude awakening when the men fighting abroad return home. Stuck doing administrative work at the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy longs for her days in the field when she could put her skills to use and take down the bad guys. She’s also trying to navigate the single life in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers.

Pilot synopsis, from ABC:

When old acquaintance Howard Stark finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy — the only person he can trust — to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name. He empowers his butler, Edwin Jarvis, to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for selling these weapons of mass destruction. If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse.
