This is so hard because you know this isn’t the first time they’ve had this conversation. They probably have it every time he visits her. He squares his shoulders before he goes in there, and hopes for the best, relatively speaking. You can see it in his face in that second gif - the way he literally crumples when he sees that he’s lost her again.
I’m shocked that I haven’t seen more people mention this scene, because this scene KILLED me. This is the only scene I cried in. I found a lot of Bucky’s scenes disturbing and I hurt for him, but this is the most heartbreaking scene for me. Because Steve remembers Peggy just like she was in the first movie. It was like a split second ago for him that Peggy was that amazing, intelligent, vivacious woman who inspired him to do amazing things. Sure Steve is shocked and rattled when he sees Bucky again, but Bucky still looks like BUCKY. Bucky was in the same time warp Steve was in and they both still look like they remember each other. But Peggy is the visual proof for Steve that everything has changed for him. She’s had a life. An entire life without him. She even points out that she grieves that HE hasn’t lived like she did. Peggy is the evidence of what Steve lost. He can sink himself in SHIELD and he can fight the good fight and try to forget that he’s not completely displaced in the world, but visiting with Peggy is both necessary for Steve because she’s the only one who remembers and also brutally painful because she’s proof that Steve is a man out of time and place. And the extra punch to the gut that she has dementia and her reaction to him is that of finding him and being heartbroken for their loss of each other. And that this obviously isn’t the first time she’s had this reaction. Steve has to know that he probably doesn’t have all that long with her either in the grand scheme of things. They find each other and lose each other and find each other over and over in this horrible, painful cycle. And soon he’s going to be utterly, completely alone. Sure he can befriend Sam and Natasha and forge new relationships, but there’s always going to be that little bit of disconnect.
And gawd does Chris Evans break your heart with his reaction. You can physically see his heart ripping apart all over his face and then him pull it together to comfort Peggy. There’s that quote floating around about the difference between “manpain” and legitimate horrible emotional pain that a character is going through. This is it. This is the moment you see it. Steve might try to hide it as much as possible and tries to be the shining beacon, but he is a man in LEGITIMATE pain. He has every right to want to curl in a ball and never come out.
When I watched the movie on Wednesday I was so shocked that no one was posting about this Like till now I kept thinking I just imagined this scene
THANK YOU FOR THIS POST. Seriously though, this scene had me sobbing pretty loudly in the theaters. And I always make the comment that this scene hurt me way worse than Noah and Allie’s scene from The Notebook, because that still fucks me up till this day. It physically hurts watching this scene.
literally bawled like a baby for five minutes when i first saw this scene
"The way Bucky was written in the earlier comic books is very different than how we decided to go with in the movie. One thing that particularly really drew me to, what I was able to find out about Bucky, as a character, is that he ended up doing the dirty work I think that added a very interesting dynamic between his relationship with Steve Rogers. Captain America was always kinda like the symbol and the guy that kind of walked away with the spotlight. And Bucky was trained to do sort of the stuff around the edges. And I really liked that because I thought it added a different edge to him."
So I read this story and just HAD to draw it. I can’t even remember the last time I did a comic… It was so fun! I’ll have to do more. :)
So I was helping some friends shoot a PSA in the nursing department of our college and I had way too much fun with the uncanny training dummies. The JFK lookin’ one was my favorite, his name is Jeffrey.
but guys what if all the stories have to do with the same crime
AM Tonight host Alicia Menendez and I did something fun, awkward and enlightening. Alicia suggested that I “flip the script”on her during our interview about my book Redefining Realness and ask her all the invasive questions I’m asked to prove my validity during interviews.
The following is a series of screengrabs where I ask her to prove her identity as a woman to me by asking about puberty, her transition from girl to woman, her genitalia and whether she used tampons. This was beyond uncomfortable but I hope our demonstration illuminates the problem in our media culture and it serves as a teaching moment for us all about self-determination and the fact that we are all valid, real and don’t need anyone’s interrogation into our lives, bodies and identities.
