- "Where did you learn that? The army?"
"No. I mean, not that I don't appreciate the sacrifices made by the men and women in our armed forces, but there are better ways to almost qualify for food stamps. It is just criminal what they get paid. Although, I'd probably be an officer. Still, though, seems like a lot of running."
According to an imposter, Veronica's apartment was broken into by Alan Shapiro, who stole, aside from money and some jewelry, a disc containing "sensitive information", and the imposter went to the Figgis Agency. However, since the imposter was the Figgis Agency's first client, the Figgis Agency's founder Cyril Figgis had not set a price for this kind of situation. The imposter offered them $100,000 in exchange for the disc, so the Figgis Agency took the job. However, once the imposter left, Cyril revealed that he was going to charge her $10,000, and Sterling Archer $9,000.
The Figgis Agency broke into Shapiro's apartment, hoping to steal the disc without being caught. However, Archer was bitten by one of the guard dogs (who were tranquilized using dog treats developed by Dr. Algernop Krieger that he called "hush puppies"), leaving a blood trail for Shapiro to notice the three agents. The three managed to escape and recover the disc, giving it to the imposter, who immediately left after paying the Figgis Agency the promised $100,000 with a fake cashier's check.
Immediately after the imposter left, Ray Gillette arrived, saying that he'd wanted to get Veronica to sign his headshot. However, the real Veronica walked in, and was identified by the aforementioned headshot. Veronica explains that she found out about the Figgis Agency through a poster made by Pam Poovey featuring a dog she named "Furlock Bones".
It is eventually revealed by Alan Shapiro that Veronica Deane is actually broke.
Veronica Deane appeared at the charity fundraiser for the American Tinnitus Foundation. Deane wore the Tsarina, a valuable necklace, making her the target of a group of killer clowns led by Mr. Rompers. Archer hides her in a secret room and kills one of the clowns in order to take his place. She remains there for the rest of the episode.
Still in the secret room, she soon gets rescued along with the other hostages, who are now disguised as the clowns due to "plan X".
She's the lead actress in the upcoming movie "Deadly Velvet" but with suspicions of sabotage, she hires Archer as her personal bodyguard. Later on, they have sex in her lounge, which she uses as an alibi as to why she can't have commited murder.
Still using the alibi that "[she] was with Archer until almost the stroke of three," she plans on escaping while pinning on the crime on Lana. She meets with Archer at her house and, after telling Archer of her plans, shoots him. However, she believes it to be a fake when another Archer shows up. She escapes and hasn't been seen since.
From first glance, Veronica appeared to be a noble and calm woman who, at least as a ruse to cover up her true motives, held a strong distaste for violence and killing. A good example would be when Archer killed one of the clowns to sneak around in their costume. Not only was Veronica visibly horrified by his actions, but suggested non-lethal actions that Archer could've taken to subdue him rather than kill him. Of course, whether she genuinely hates violence or simply acted as though she was against it is unknown.
It is also shown that under dire and rather frightening situations that Veronica becomes frantic and starts to panic. Regardless, she is shown trying to keep a level head whenever the situation is under these circumstances and maintains a sense of professional, such as by silencing Archer when he had began to discuss the case openly in public and she silenced him, asking him why he thought discussing the case would be a good idea.
However, once her true motives were revealed, she unveiled a darker side of herself. Crazy and manipulative, she could easily be called a femme fatale. She holds little regards for others lives and is only interested in money - as she's broke - and fame. As a femme fatale, she is capable of using her beauty to sway men to perform actions for her needs, such as using Shapiro to frame Lana for the murder of her ex-husband, Ellis Crane.
She has no qualms about disposing people that finds out her plans - or are simply no longer of use to her.
