Subject: Clarification.

Hello all,

First and foremost, I would like to apologize for your email addresses. I have tried repeatedly to have them switched to your requested handles, but it is, after all, Tony’s system, and he keeps switching them back. (Except for yours, Mr. Barton. For some reason, he seems to have deemed this choice acceptable.) 

Secondly: it has come to my attention that each of you has, in one way or another, been accosted by Tony with demands that you move into the Tower as soon as humanly possible. As I know how Tony can be, I wanted to make sure to shoot you a little note clarifying our position. We — that is, Tony and I — of course welcome each of you to join us in calling the Tower home, but you are not, as Tony may have suggested, under any obligation to do so. If you decide not to move in, that is perfectly acceptable, and I assure you that there will be no follow through on any threats to that may have been made to: stalk you; release feral cats in and/or around your homes; infect your apartments with a variety of insects including but not limited to bedbugs; blame you personally for the downfall of human civilization when inevitably the great enemy comes and you’re not there due to your selfish decision to retain your own residence; use technological prowess to make your bed smell constantly of tuna fish; buy your buildings and demolish them. 

Though it may seem counterintuitive, this is, for better or worse, how Tony sees fit to make friends. He is not particularly good at it, as I am sure you have all come to realize. This is why I have copied Colonel Rhodes and Dr. Banner on this email — their first-hand experience in Tony’s peculiar brand of affection may help you through the upcoming period of transition, as I am unfortunately far too busy to shepherd you all any further. Please direct any further inquiries, phone calls, concerns, and angry shrieking rants to either Colonel Rhodes or Dr. Banner, both of whom have repeatedly expressed willingness to commiserate in frustration on the topic of Tony. 

I hope this has been helpful, and I look forward to seeing you all in the future. 

Best,
Pepper

-I couldn’t leave my best girl.Not when she owes me a dance.

What makes this part such a punch to the gut is the fact that the beginning of the scene itself isn’t actually sad at all. Sure, there’s a wistfulness on Steve’s side and he’s quite frank about feeling lost in this new world, but Peggy is honest with him in return, like she has always been and she also makes it clear that she has no regrets with how she had lived her life. This is how their relationship has always been defined, and Steve is simply happy for her, so proud of her. She is his anchor, his compass pointing north, and it doesn’t matter whether she’s 25 or 95.

Then in a split second, she forgets everything, forgets the present him. The him that was just smiling with her just moments ago. In her own fight against such a cruel disease, Peggy only remembers him in terms of her grief of losing him 70 years ago. And that’s why Steve crumbles so visibly here, even as he tries so hard to hold himself together and be brave for her. It’s what Peggy herself would’ve done if their situations have been reversed, and Steve knows it.

And arguably, it’s what Peggy did when she spoke to Steve on the radio. It was heartrending and terrifying, but Peggy stayed on with him until it cut out. What’s more, she gave him what he needed then— a light distraction from his demise, a promise, a voice that he loved in his ear.

When Peggy said that he wouldn’t be alone, she didn’t just mean bodies with him on Hydra raids, or even a voice on the radio— she meant that he would be supported. Steve is honoring their accord. He will put on his brave face, despite how brokenhearted he is to see the change in her demeanor, and he will tell Peggy the truth: that he couldn’t leave his best girl.

We never see the Winter Soldier straight away - he always appears on the scene out of thin air, which makes him seem all that more menacing and scary. Also,

[The Winter Soldier is] never in a hurry—we only see him running once in the entire film. […] Captain America frantically runs […] while the Winter Soldier casually strolls to his destination, stopping only to kick people into jet engines. That contrast is subtle but it makes the Winter Soldier seem more in control—he’s already there while everyone else scrambles to catch up. (x)

There’s something very arousing about having an immediate response from people, right then and there. Theater really is much more of an actor’s medium because you’re in control of the editing, of what the audience is going to see. You’re the one making those choices. There isn’t somebody else up there cutting the moment together for you.
