Dominique "Dom" DiPierro is a FBI field agent investigating the "5/9 hack" of E Corp. She is played by Grace Gummer.


Dominique was raised in Bergen County, New Jersey. Her parents bought a seemingly rare clock from a Kmart in Teaneck, keeping it in the family room. She prefers to go by Dom.

Dom attended law school and was days before graduation when she decided to switch careers. At dinner, the person she was dating proposed to her. She excused herself to the restroom and escaped out the back of the restaurant. Several years later, she became a mid-level FBI field agent.


Season 2

In June, Dom is seen at a deli ordering her usual sandwich. She makes friendly conversation with the Iranian clerk, Ahmed, inquiring about his family. When a customer behind her urges her to hurry, Dom has a laugh with Ahmed in his language. She meets with Gideon Goddard shortly before he is murdered, although it appears he doesn't give her any leads.

Dom ritually applies make up in the morning. Late at night, she masturbates to online sex chats and asks her Amazon Echo for the time, just to hear another voice in her apartment.

Dom is called to investigate the murder of Leslie Romero, who had a printed list of FBI agents at the crime scene. She is annoyed when an investigator sneezes close to her and is too late in stopping another tech from removing a USB from the computer, triggering a trap which destroys the unit. Dom appeals to Romero's eldery mother, rolling her a number of joints since she can't roll them herself due to her arthritis. When getting a cup to drink out of, she finds a flyer for the End of the World Party with the Fun Society arcade address listed. Seeing the "F Society" sign outside, she shakes her head in disbelief.

The FBI search the arcade extensively. A bullet casing is found.

Later, Dom arrives at the FBI floor of the E Corp building. She lets a man know he is not allowed on their floor. She talks with a colleague about her recurring, frightening dream. Dom says she doesn't dream. Their superior, Santiago, has declared that they are going to China. At the Chinese airport, Dom sees a group of men wearing devil masks.

The Minister of State Security, Mr. Zhang, welcomes them to Beijing and promises them a tour of the four E Corp backup facilities. Their tapes were degaussed rather than attack with climate control. Dom brings up the Dark Army, a touchy subject which surprises all at the meeting. Zhang promises to deliver dossiers on the hacker group and invites them to a party, the night before the tour.

At the event, Dom goes searching for the bathroom and finds a room full of clocks. Zhang finds her having wandered far from the party. Dom recognizes a clock her parents bought from Kmart as an expensive, unique model Zhang bought in Germany. The two get to know each other, as Zhang explains his fascination with time and Dom tells the story of how she chose the FBI. In a bedroom, Zhang shows Dom fine Chinese dresses, which are said to belong to his sister. When the clocks chime, Dom excuses herself.

The next morning, Dom and her colleague are walking into the lobby. Santiago is elsewhere on a phone call concerning the contamination of finger prints on the Raspberry Pi at Steel Mountain. Suddenly, two masked gunmen enter and kill the colleague and others. Dom takes cover. She wounds one in the leg and he immediately kills himself. The other has her cornered, but he also commits suicide.

Back in the States, Santiago tells Dom that Agent Ramos recommends four weeks psych leave. Dom refuses, claiming the Dark Army wants to disturb the investigation. Santiago disagrees, citing Chinese blame on Uighur separatists and that hackers don't do shootings. Dom sees the suicides as suspicious. At her local deli, she learns Ahmed is closing up shop due to the economy. Dom orders one last sandwich.

On July 3, Dom approaches Angela Moss at the E Corp building as the latter is hacking the FBI. She introduces herself andquestions why Angela was on the restricted FBI floor, notably during lunch hour. Angela says she was making a date and tries to get back to her "phone call", as Darlene is helping with the hack. Dom explains that she finds it curious that Angela, given her history, now works at E Corp. She wants to take a statement, but leaves Angela to her work.

Dom immediately goes to check the security footage, but finds the entire archive corrupt. She tells others to sweep the 23rd floor and check Angela's computer, although the latter is likely to be clean. She then says she's off to find a 4th of July barbecue to be miserable at. The next night, Dom is interrogating a banker who illegally owned the gun from which the arcade bullet casing came. She offers immunity in exchange for a name.

The same night, the FBI pick up Sunil Markesh. She offers condolences for Romero before explaining how she linked the name DJ Mobley back to an Internet fan page he made. Dom wants Tyrell Wellick. Mobley wants a lawyer. Meanwhile, the leaked conference call about Project Berenstain is causing quite the scandal around the FBI. People are being fired. Dom is told to release Mobley after holding him for 12 hours with no evidence. The next day, Dom speaks with an agent who was Angela's date on 4th of July. She didn't talk.

On August 7th, Dom shows up at Angela's apartment with her favorite food from Nia's Gyros. She lets herself in and starts telling the story of a rare dream she had of a beautiful, "sexy" woman drowning her. She tells Angela that Ollie told the FBI about the Allsafe CD two months ago and they have been tailing her ever since. They know she's been freaking out. Dom offers a helping hand, because the next person coming after her won't bring food. She lets her know that in the dream, stopping the struggle is how she survived.

In the middle of the night, Dom is called to the smart house of Susan Jacobs. The sketch of someone breaking in matches the sketch Ollie described of Cisco. Dom asks why the FBI searched the house instead of staking it out. The investigator discovered that Susan Jacobs hasn't shown up for work and is now considered missing.

Dom takes the two matching sketches to Santiago to pursue the case. Santiago wants to put out a B.O.L.O. on the news, but Dom fears what the Dark Army is capable of. An ER nurse calls that she has seen the man. Dom arrives and deduces that Cisco and the woman he was with didn't run and plan to return for their friend. Dom searches the local area for places to eat. She finds Cisco and Darlene at a diner and confronts them. At the same moment, two masked gunmen arrive on a motorcycle. One opens fire through the window. Dom wounds him and he commits suicide. The other drives off as police swarm and a bloody Dom runs out into the street.

Dom is taken to the hospital, where she explains that the blood on her face isn't hers and she wants to get back on the case. Santiago is there to persuade her to take time off. He kicks other agents out of the room. Dom asks to get FBI Director on the phone and that the Chinese government is behind this act of war. Santiago refuses, explaining that the Chinese have bailed out E Corp and the United States won't endanger global economic recovery by straining international relations. Dom is sent home while her boss promises her the interview of witnesses in a few hours.

At home, Dom is slow to wash her face and change clothes. As she tries to fall asleep, she begins asking her Amazon Echo Alexa questions to form a connection. What's her favorite color? Are they friends? Is Alexa happy? Does Alexa love her? Dom becomes emotionally distraught before falling asleep.

She later interrogates Darlene with Santiago. Dom gives her condolences for Cisco's death, while Darlene pleads the 5th amendment. Santiago threatens her with the Patriot Act, stripping her of her rights because she isn't a TV character on Burn Notice or the USA network. He leaves the room.

Dom tries to appeal to Darlene on the basis of being Jersey girls in over their heads. Darlene is allowed to smoke as she pleads ignorance of what was simply a night out with the love of her life. Darlene refuses the good cop routine and asks for a lawyer. Dom chuckles and leave. She asks Santiago for another one on one encounter.

Dom lays out the evidence: the film equipment and fsociety mask found at Cisco's apartment; the bullet casing found at the arcade which is linked to a gun whose owner identifies Darlene. Vincent, who Darlene is assured will survive, along with the other arrested foot soldiers also identify Darlene as their leader. Dom reflects on the situation, that they are involved in one of the biggest events in world history. She explains that she has no life and has been working the case extensively.

She then brings Darlene out into the hall where her FBI colleagues stop and stare. Dom leads her to a room where the walls are covered in evidence. The FBI has linked Cisco, Mobley, Trenton, Romero, Gideon, Darlene, Angela, Elliot and Tyrell in a grand web of connections. Dom reveals that the FBI has been sitting back, waiting for the man in the middle, Tyrell to become vulnerable. She says that Romero was simply killed by a stray bullet. Darlene says, "You've got to be fucking kidding me."
