Margaret Elizabeth Carter. Fell in love. With a secret Nazi.
And not just fell in love, but carried a torch for the rest of her goddamn life, continuing to fight the good fight he inspired her to?
You’re tryna tell me that Peggy Carter, THE FOUNDER OF FUCKING S.H.I.E.L.D., who spent her ENTIRE career fighting Hydra, would have had no idea that the great love of her life was Hydra’s #1 guy?

Even if you say that mayyyyyyybe the war was distracting and she and Steve didn’t have that long together blah blah blah, again, the woman spent the WHOLE of her life and career trying to destroy Hydra and honor Steve’s memory.
Your argument is nonsense and you are a idiot piece of shit.
