  1. I don’t care enough about Sharon to care about whether she’s a villain or not, but in terms of how close she was to Peggy, she was close enough to give the eulogy at Peggy’s funeral, and I’ve always wondered if she was actually talking to Peggy on the phone in CA:WS when she runs into Steve in the hallway of their apartment building. “My aunt - kind of an insomniac.”
  2. I really loved Clark and Lois’s reaction to Jon’s drinking. Lois’s anger was great and Clark’s “Excuse me?” when Jordan said it wasn’t a big deal was perfect. I also liked Jon’s “Yes, ma’am.” When Mama is mad it’s a good idea to bust out the “ma’am.” :) I really like how quick the whole Kent family is to say they’re sorry - and actually uses the word “I’m sorry” or “I apologize” - when they mess up and also how willing they are to forgive each other when apologized to. I was afraid that Jordan was going to go off in a huff after Jon apologized, but he immediately accepted it and then shi
  3. I’m late getting started on the show, but so far I’m really enjoying it. Clark taking off his glasses to reveal his identity to the twins reminded me of the scene from the old Lois and Clark show:
  4. I loved seeing Sam's nephews playing with Bucky and the kids hanging off his metal arm while he chatted with some adults. Very cute. I was not a fan of the half-hood or whatever it is of Sam's Cap outfit. Why not give him an actual helmet to protect his head, especially since he's not enhanced? It looks odd to me, even if its - I'm assuming? - tied to his comics costume?
  5. Brought from the Truth thread: I'm unclear on how being a mother figure is "demeaning nonsense." Both women were smart, physically capable, valued members of their teams. Where were they demeaned by also being portrayed as compassionate and supportive? I'm assuming that's what is meant by mothering behavior, at least.

  7. I, honestly, a couple of weeks ago thought, "I might ship Bucky and Sarah" when they hadn't even met yet, so I loved this. And Sam's reaction. I said, "Yes," when Sam said that. So, true and just what Bucky needed to hear. And it was a great reminder of what Sam said when wanting to talk to Karli on his own, that he'd counseled traumatized vets. I loved that you could see Bucky really listening to what Sam was saying. The apology was so wonderful and so heartfelt. Lovely scene and moment between the two of them. I liked seeing Julia Louis Dreyfus show up. I like her and
  8. I didn’t think about that at the time the episode aired, but it makes sense.
  9. I would have no problem with the Dora Mijae arresting Bucky. I would have had no problem if the Dora had beat up everyone involved and taken Zemo by force. (Well, I would have been sad Sam and Bucky got beat up, but them’s the breaks when you break a bad guy out of prison.) I do, though, have a huge problem with anyone disabling another person’s prosthetic limb (or eye or hearing aid or pace-maker) using a secret gizmo the person is unaware of because they’re in a fight. That’s crappy, and the person who does it loses any moral high ground or sympathy they might otherwise have had wit
  10. Yeah. To say something like “Bucky had the gall to look betrayed” when Ayo disabled his arm is ridiculous. He should feel betrayed. It was his arm, given to him by Wakanda, and, as far as we know, without T’Challa or Suri saying, “You can have this arm until we change our minds and want it back. Enjoy!” I mean, imagine any country or institution including a hidden way to disable and detach a person’s prosthetic. Yikes.
  11. No doubt. I never said their being women didn’t factor in.
  12. I didn’t say he wasn’t arrogant. He disregarded Bucky and Sam the same way he disregarded the Dora. A man with experience and training can still make mistakes - I just don’t think his mistake and his reactions were tied solely to the fact that the Dora are women.
  13. For me, Walker being dismayed that a group of women warriors beat the crap out of him doesn’t make him a horrible male chauvinist. It makes him a strong, physically fit, hugely successful soldier - a warrior himself - who could, generally, be expected to physically overpower a woman, or probably even women, who attacked him. I can completely understand him being surprised and humiliated by having been so completely physically dominated by the Dora, especially when he’s already struggling with whether he’s worthy of the shield. Is he a chauvinist to some degree? Sure. He didn’t expect
  14. Sam: Look, Zemo’s going to mess with our minds. Especially yours. No offense. Bucky: Offense.
  15. Steve was clearly lighting the sex bomb fuse. Just another of the super serum effects, I guess.
