#9 – Waking Up to an Alien Time

From: Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

Being told that your loved ones and friends are long gone can be quite traumatic for anyone. I guess that’s the whole reason why SHIELD lied to Steve Rogers — to soften the blow. After saving countless lives by crashing Hydra’s aircraft into the Arctic, Steve becomes frozen for almost 70 years.

He suddenly awakens to a baseball game being broadcast on the radio. When a female — dressed to resemble Peggy Carter — enters the room to greet him, Steve is quick to catch on that this isn’t where she says it is. Why? He was actually at the baseball game being broadcast, and the reports don’t match his recollection. Seeing Steve become more agitated, she signals for assistance. Soon, two SHIELD agents dressed in tactical gear enter. The First Avenger quickly throws them through the room’s wall, revealing that the room was only a facade inside of a larger building.

Steve sprints for the exits, knocking over other SHIELD agents trying to stop him. Out in the open, Steve discovers that he’s in a place very foreign to him — 2012 New York City. Nick Fury quickly arrives, apologizes, and comes clean as to why they had to lie to him. When Fury asks if he’s gong to be okay, Steve, in a melancholy tone, responds, “Yeah, yeah … I just … I had a date.”
