Everything about the wipe is so sickening. This scene as a whole was the most horrifying thing I’ve seen in the MCU to date and yes, I remember Iron Man and Tony’s torture and no, this is still the most horrifying thing.
It’s not just the utterly sickening lack of agency, and the fact that he is half naked and injured and surrounded by men in swat gear with guns and rifles pointed at him. It’s not just the fact that you know he could take down everyone in this room without even breaking a sweat and yet he doesn’t. It’s not even just Pierce backhanding him, like he’d hit a broken toy to try and get it to start again.
It’s the fact that there’s something there. There’s something he’s hanging on to, desperately, there’s something clawing at him and it hurts because he’s remembering and he doesn’t know what it means, he doesn’t have parameters to deal with this, he’s overwhelmed and in pain and resigned that it’s going to be taken away from him but it’s too important to let it go. He speaks out of turn, “But I knew him,” he knows he’s going to hurt, now, his body remembers, he hyperventilates before the head piece is even in place, but someone gave him a name and that is too important, that he can’t let go, he can’t shove it back. And if you look here?
This isn’t resignation. This is defiance. This is emotional bleed. He knows he’s being lied to. He knows, just as he viscerally knew the man on the bridge. They’re going to try and take it away from him, and the last thing he can remember thinking as the headpiece slots in place is to hold on, just hold on, hold on to the name, hold on to that face, he can hold on, he can.
And he does. He fucking does. After Steve cracked him open, not even the wipe, not even the electroshock and the pain and the threat of what would happen to him if he failed was enough to shake off that bone-deep feeling that he knew him. The asset might’ve taken down Captain america, but Bucky Barnes would never, ever harm Steve Rogers. Hydra done and fucked up. They forgot these men’s identities, discarded them, regarded them as not relevant; but the moment Steve was able to break through and give Bucky back a doubt, a shred of sense of self, their whole programming collapsed like a fucking house of cards.
They forgot, banally, that there was still a person inside their beautifully carved weapon. And I can’t wait for the moment where James Buchanan Barnes reminds them. The time of reckoning is upon Hydra, and it’s going to be glorious.
Did someone say revenge?
I never could figure out why everyone was talking about how “blank” and passive Bucky was and ignored that final look before they wiped him. He was DEFIANT. Yes he’d been passive and confused up to that point, but when he knows what they’re going to do and he knows he’s not going to get any answers from them, he looks at them all as coldly and defiantly as Bucky’s ever looked at anyone. He looks them right in the eye and doesn’t flinch because I think it’s at that moment whatever is left of Bucky claws its way up and he makes it a point to try to hold on. I think that’s why the second brain wiping barely seems to phase him when he gets on the helicarrier. For all intents and purposes, he’s an emotional mess before he even gets to Steve. It’s like the brain wiping barely did anything.
Just like he tried to choke the one doctor the minute they started showing him his cyber arm, that look before they wipe him again is pure Bucky. Bucky was always colder than Steve and always more on the ruthless side. Imagine that with only a fledgling version of the kind part of Bucky still trying to come up. Hydra is screwed. They tried to wipe out the only thing in Bucky that might have saved them. Bucky’s still a good man in there, but that’s the part of him he’s got to get reacquainted with. And Hydra’s going to pay while he remembers who Bucky is.

Anonymous said: I don't really get the point of that sterek scene. After 18 episodes of real Derek and Stiles being apart, this was their reunion? It was really anticlimactic.
NO BUT DID YOU SEE STILES’ FACE when lydia figured out the last keyword is DEREK? HE LOOKED SO MAD. WHAT DOES IT MEANNNN?
I’m joining these together because i think they’re the same thing
this episode was the bridge, it was getting from point a - learning of the dead pool - to point b chaos
it was full of expository information and very little actual character development, and a contradiction or two - like why wasn’t liam paralysed by the yellow wolfsbane?
now when everything is hectic and crazy it becomes hard to further character interaction, there was a lot to learn in this ep - a LOT, but yet we have stiles and derek together for the first time forever and nothing happens, yet we learn that derek is the third key and we have something, we have stiles reacting negatively behind lydia’s back
not enough to phone derek and warn him (the way this show uses absence)
i think i need to explain that
a lot of what happens in teen wolf actually happens off screen, and sterek lives in these scenes, but at the same time fandom happens in the gaps and there is very little “gap” fanfic, there’s a slew of aus, post everything fics, etc, but very little episode codas and in between fics which is very telling
the shows with the most holes usually get the most fic, star trek, supernatural etc
so why does teen wolf? when there are so few gaps
1. no one communicates in this show
how easier would melissa have had it if a few of those hundred bills found their way downstairs - hey mom i accidentally robbed a serial killer, but no worries, he’s dead now, no i didn’t kill him - can go a long way
2. the show uses absence, most shows don’t, if it happens off screen in most shows it’s unimportant, not in teen wolf, it can be AS important if not more so, we have so many examples of that, the pool scene comes to mind, why did erica stay out for so long, why didn’t she have a fit when the kanima clawed her when she did in the library, these aren’t oversights, what did stiles and derek talk about for two hours
why does peter have stiles phone number, does he butt dial him in the middle of the night
absence in this show is like the footnotes in an essay - you don’t need to see/read it, but if you do it’s much richer
3. the show wants you to question it, to pick at it
it has what we’re calling a show vs tell dichotomy, the show tells us one thing whilst presenting another, it’s like holding out a carrot and saying behold the mighty turnip. Often these differences are small things, sometimes they’re great big glaring contradictions
for example, if we look at the dead pool we have Liam on there with the surname Dunbar, but Malia with the surname Hale
Malia doesn’t fit the information of being Peter’s duaghter, Peter certainly doesn’t think so, but Liam does, so because Lydia told us that Malia is the child does that make it so, or did she mishear and think she heard a name she knew? Liam and malia do sound alike.
Scott is the king of show vs tell, we’re shown he’s a selifsh, conniving fool who means well but fails more often than not, but we’re told he’s the true alpha, the one to bring balance to the force, who will save everyone, so what do we believe?
so to bring this back to sterek, we have stiles helping derek hold down a fitting werewolf (why wasn’t liam fitting? is it a bitten/born difference) and they look at each other and snark, they fall into old patterns despite their absence from each other.
then we have stiles visible reaction to Derek’s name
Stiles might not want to care about Derek, but he does, clearly. And that’s plenty of Sterek, don’t you think.
