Season 3[]

New York gangster Gyp Rosetti flirts with her while eating at the diner. He later resolves to sleep with her. She is soon seen engaging in erotic asphyxiation with Gyp, choking him with a belt as he masturbates and encourages her to hurt him. She is concerned when he passes out, though he soon comes to and tells her to retrieve a wet towel. Later, as she has sex with Gyp, a young Benny Siegel infiltrates the hotel they are with the pretense of being a paperboy making an evening delivery. He breaks into the room and attempts to murder Rosetti, but he uses Roberta as a human shield. She is shot below the collarbone above her left breast. She is last seen lying on the bed in a pool of blood. ("You'd Be Surprised")
