This was the sneakiest blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shot.
Oooh the shield is next to the bed, bottom corner right, NICE ONE.
I’m just in love with the idea that you just KNOW so many fucking people volunteered to go look for it and dove into that water. That shield is so important, not only to the public but also to STEVE. I knew that it was in this scene but to have it confirmed and how it’s lovingly facing outward from his bed, at his side. It’s Sam, Steve and then the trusty shield.
I don’t care what anyone says THAT SHIELD HOLDS A PART OF STEVE’S SOUL.
This pleases me because as huge as the river is, a giant chunk of vibranium should not be difficult to find. And if there wasn’t anybody actively looking for it before, you can bet your ass Sam and Nat made sure somebody did
WHAT. OH MY GOSH I DIDN’T SEE IT OH MY GOSHHHHHHHH
