It was warm, funny, sexy and poignant. It was cut short before it could amount to anything more because the characters felt that the immediate task at hand superseded all other activities, including more in-depth romantic entanglements. The way Cap and Peggy handled it was noble. They put aside their own personal needs in the service of something greater.

In the present day, that relationship, yes, that LOVE, represents everything Steve gave up to become a Supersoldier. It is essentially the price he paid for getting everything he wanted in the first film, in terms of improving his physical body.

Nothing comes without a price, and it's hard to argue that when he was in Erskine's chamber, that Steve truly understood that he was giving up his entire life, and everyone he knew, and eventually the people he loved and fought beside.

THAT'S the emotional truth that Cap has to confront in the present day. WHAT HE HAS LOST, including any possibility of being able to be with Peggy, and what the future holds, especially the horrifying possibility of never getting old himself, and of never being able to have a normal relationship and life trajectory.

Sharon Carter may be an important character to you, and to the comic canon, but in this film, her storyline will not be explored very much, because Cap has so much unfinished emotional business with his PAST.

Just let April 4 get here!
Just bolding the first part because ksb pretty much said word for word what I was going to log in and say

All I want is for CA:TWS to tell Steve's story effectively and emotionally. Looking how he moves on from the past while simultaneously getting hit with a metal fist to his face from his not-so-dead BFF. Peggy is also a part of that too, as is
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:

That's it.
