I agree with you on your post about Barnes not being a villain... but the writers did an awful job. That scene in Siberia w/ Steve and Tony... they could've make him act like he's OBVIOUSLY feeling bad and guilty. I know it would've been OOC to make him apologize and all because he's lost and doesn't know how to react, but damn. It felt like he wasn't there and empty, whch is in his character, but I don't know. He was passive and that's probably what made Tony even more angry. 1/2
And I say this above the fact I completely understand Tony’s reaction - if I have the guy who actually KILLED MY PARENTS in front of me, I’d do anything to have revenge. Like everything. I’d be blinded by that feeling. It’s very understandable because it’s a human feeling. This is how at least 90% of the planet would’ve reacted. Barnes knows this and I find completely stupid Steve’s reaction in this scene rather than his best friend’s. Opinions are mine. Hope you can understand. 2/2
Wow, this got lost in my messages!
I see where you’re coming from, but I disagree with you about Bucky’s reaction.
Bucky cried. He was definitely there and he felt horrible, in his own way. You can see it clear on his face. He does feel guilty about every person he’s ever killed, including Howard and Maria Stark. He just fully witnessed himself murdering two people.
Yes, it’s a human feeling to react the way Tony reacted to seeing his parents getting killed, but it’s a Bucky feeling to react the way he reacted to seeing him killing Tony’s parents. He remembers, he knows. It might be out of character to apologize, but his eyes tell everything.
