Again, MARVEL just decided to blow my mind away.

In CA: TWS, Steve’s scene happened first with him going to Peggy’s nursing home and being troubled by the whole manipulation that SHIELD made. Knowing that he’s out of it, Peggy decided to ask him what was wrong which ended up with him spilling about how he’s unsure about everything in the world right now. Steve Rogers is a man out of time, still trying to find himself in this 21st century. In the 1940s, nothing was this complicated; what was right, was right and what was wrong, was wrong. Now, everything is just a dark shade of grey where everything that is right is justified as something that could be wrong and what is wrong is justified as something that could be right due to certain reasons.

 His morals has been compromised and because doing what is right has been always his life goal, he’s unsure what to do now like a puppy lost, without any sense of direction. So he confides in Peggy, who at least, for a short period of time, is not disturbed by her disease.

“The world has changed and none of us could go back. And sometimes, the best that we can do is to start over.”

I just can’t help but distinguish the fact that when both of them were crashing in Sam’s house, here Natasha is, doing what Steve was doing awhile ago with Peggy.

Steve knows that Natasha is troubled with something; heck, he probably knows that it’s all because of Hydra. But he decided to ask her anyway with a “What’s wrong?”

The determination in his voice to find out what was bothering her shook her from her thoughts and she questioned if it was okay to admit to him about her fears; all of her identity has been compromised.

Natasha was a ruthless, graceful and deathly woman. However, take that suit and emotionless mask away and she’s just a fragile human being who was forced to train in the KGB and to put those feelings aside. She’s not used to confrontations that involves her personal feelings or thoughts. It has always been her receiving orders and acting out according to it.

 Joining SHIELD, she was making amends for her red in her ledger, not trying to add more red to the ledger. But now that SHIELD was known as Hydra, what was she supposed to do? She already had trust issues, but now the company she was working for ended up as a deathtrap.

But with Steve, maybe over the course of their breakout and everything, she realized that he was trustworthy enough. So, she decided to open up to him even if it was hard in her place for she still can’t comprehend the fact that all this time, SHIELD was actually Hydra in disguise.

Never has Natasha appear so weak, so defenseless. All she is is stripped bare and even if she can’t admit to herself, she realized she has to and maybe the easiest way is to admit it to someone else and hear herself say it so that she could believe it.

And maybe that was the same for Steve as well, to accept that indeed, the world has changed and nothing is ever the same anymore.

To take this analogy further, let’s take what Peggy said and apply it to Natasha:

“The world has changed and none of us could go back. And sometimes, the best that we can do is to start over.”

Starting over. Not as simple as wiping the slate clean, but being able to release the past and move forward on a new path. At the end of the movie, Natasha takes all her secrets and releases them to the world. She burns herself, anathema for a spy, and it’s akin to a blazing forest fire, clearing old brush for a new spring.

What does Steve say to Natasha at the end of her confession?

"Maybe you’re in the wrong business."

It’s more than just an echo of Natasha’s earlier jibe, it’s his answer to Natasha’s dilemma just as much as Peggy’s answer was to Steve’s similar dilemma.

Since Natasha joined the Avengers, she’s walked the thin line between spy and hero, but as we learned from the fate of Director Fury, the necessary moral ambiguity and lack of trust in the world of spies means that you cannot be both.

Thus, after burning her old identity as a spy, it may be time for Natasha to start over.

It gets more tragic. Powdered root of asphodel and infusion of wormwood are ingredients in a sleeping potion called the Draught of Living Death, which condemns the drinker to a death-like slumber indefinitely. So not only is Snape saying, “I bitterly regret Lily’s death,” he’s also saying that his bitterness and regrets are ingredients in his own living death.  Since Lily’s death, he has been sleepwalking through life; he does not expect to ever again be wholly alive.

Also, in Greek myth one of the possible afterlifes was the Fields of Asphodel, the resting place of “the souls and phantoms of those whose work is done”, sometimes linked to Elysium. So he’s talking about the afterlife, too. Also, asphodel has been said to be able to allow you to see the spirits of the dead. And in the Bible, the star Wormwood was cast down in Revelation and made all the waters of the Earth bitter.
So, Snape bitterly regrets Lily’s death, her loss makes him feel as if he is no longer truly living, he longs to see her again in the afterlife, and her loss was like the end of the world to him.

  • The US Government: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
  • The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
  • The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
  • The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
  • The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
  • The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
  • The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
  • The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day
