The most significant moment is surely the end of their showdown on the helicarrier, when Steve finally gives up. For the first time ever, he backs down from a fight. Why? Well, not only can he not bring himself to kill Bucky, but there’s also the fact that fighting Bucky no longer serves any purpose. Steve doesn’t really have anything to live for if Bucky doesn’t remember him, and he’s already fulfilled his mission by bringing down the three HYDRA helicarriers. Bucky isn’t the “enemy,” he isn’t a bully, he’s just a malfunctioning weapon who can’t help what he’s been programmed to do.

This is the point where I flush all my emotions down the toilet and go to live in an igloo made of frozen tears, because what the hell. This is a goddamn SUPERHERO MOVIE where the denouement is the hero effectively committing suicide because he can’t cope with living in a world where he’s killed his best friend. Earlier on when Steve tells Sam that he doesn’t want to kill Bucky, he’s not just saying that he can’t kill Bucky, he’s tacitly admitting that he might even fuck up the overall mission and endanger millions of lives because he can’t use lethal force against his friend. Then Captain America just casually drops his shield into the Potomac, because he knows he isn’t coming back from this.

Who the hell is Bucky? (x)

There’s so much about this scene that needs to be talked about separately because each time you see this scene again, something new pops into your head.

In some recent post-TWS fics, there are scenes where Steve calls him Bucky, but Bucky/WS adamantly refuses to be referred to as Bucky because as far as he’s concerned, that’s not him.

You know, in 616, we weren’t afforded this extremely interesting and character developing opportunity. The Winter Soldier never got to rediscover who he was. (The way the comics handled Bucky remembering was fine by the way. MCU just didn’t set it up that way, because film and other storytelling things, and also like it’s it’s own universe).

It’s interesting because it forces us to think of them as two different people, even though eventually they become one person (this combination of the cocky Brooklyn boy and the desensitized assassin). But at the end of CATWS, The Winter Soldier has one name to go on. And he seeks out this name, seeks out James Buchanan Barnes, learns of this person that Captain America insists is him. And what does he feel? A connection? Disconnection? We don’t know.

I mean, he’s allowed to be his own person now. He’s allowed to create an identity whether it be something completely knew or falling back on who he was. Is he angry? Does he feel a loss? Or is the only thing guiding him Steve? Like, we really don’t know.

It’s just so interesting. The Winter Soldier always became a blank slate after missions. This is a new kind of blank slate entirely.

Anonymous whispered: Why does Chris Evans always grab his left boob when he laughs?

officialchelso:

Hello, anon, and thank you for the question.

This topic has been studied by researchers for years. There are three prevailing theories that I will relay to you now.

1. It keeps him on the ground.

image

You may notice in the gif above that Chris’ leg starts to rise as he laughs, possibly a precursor to his entire body undergoing a sort of lift off due to his joy. Chris then employs his upper body strength to force himself to obey the laws of gravity.

2. To check on his physique.

image

As you may be aware, anon, it takes a lot of hard work to maintain a superhero body. Chris is concerned that in the time he has spent sitting down, sans working out or eating, he has lost muscle mass. Understandably, he feels the need to make sure that he is still a specimen.

3. Object permanence.

image

Object permanence is a term applied to the understanding that an object still exists even when you cannot see it. Chris closes his eyes when he laughs, making him unable to see that he has not disappeared. By grabbing his left boob, Chris knows that he has not somehow ceased to exist.

I hope this helps.
