"'Sharon' is a blast," said series head writer writer Malcolm Spellman, "because once you dig into, ‘Wait a minute, when’s the last time we saw her, when she was in 'Civil War', what happened?’ 

"...and we got to write an entire backstory that the audience won’t even see, but bring it to life once you meet her and realize what all she must've been through. Even though she has the baby face and looks innocent, she’s got a lot more edge now..." 

" the beginning, 'Steve Rogers'/'Captain America' meets 'Sharon Carter' in his apartment building's hallway. Introducing herself as a nurse, she seems to flirt with 'the 'Avenger'.

"Unfortunately for Steve, the flirtation was merely a cover. When the 'Winter Soldier' attempts to assassinate 'S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury' in Steve's apartment, Sharon reveals herself as 'Agent 13'...

"...assigned by Fury to keep an eye on Steve as he adjusts to life as a man out of time.

"Even though Steve gives her the cold shoulder when they next meet in passing at the 'Triskelion', Sharon doesn't let that sway her loyalty to S.H.I.E.L.D., Fury, or Roger's role as 'Captain America'. 

"When 'Hydra' reveals it has been infiltrating the organization, Sharon sides with the 'good guys' as Hydra tries to take over the S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters.

"Following the dismantling of S.H.I.E.L.D., Sharon becomes an agent for the 'CIA'. Steve's next meeting with Sharon brings with it yet another secret. After serving as a pallbearer at the funeral of 'Peggy Carter'...

"...Steve watches as Sharon delivers the eulogy, revealing her relationship to the S.H.I.E.L.D. co-founder. Sharon never told anyone who her aunt was because she wanted to earn her place on her own merits. 

"A bond between Sharon and Steve starts to form. 

"But their reunion is short-lived following the bombing during the 'Sokovia Accords' signing in Vienna. 

"Sharon learns the whereabouts of 'Bucky Barnes' as the terrorist 'Zemo' framed the Winter Soldier for the crime. She gives the intel to Cap, who, along with Falcon, goes after his former best friend. Sharon is last seen in Germany...

"...risking her career and livelihood, delivering Steve, Sam, and Bucky their gear confiscated by the government. Sharon and Cap share a parting kiss.

"But now, the former SHIELD agent is on the run from the government, with the Sokovia Accords still in effect...

"...teaming up with Sam and Bucky, to uncover a global conspiracy... 

"...with the help of an unlikely ally...
