Captain America: The Winter Soldier + deleted scene
HE KNOWS. HE KNOWS THERE ARE HYDRA AGENTS IN THE ROOM AND HE’S TELLING HER TO GO TO NEW YORK SO THEY THINK SHE’S GONE.
And Hill knows what’s up. I’m not sure how much time they spent working together but it seems to me they both know what needs to happen next, and Sitwell knows staying behind is likely to get him killed.
That last gif. That microexpression softening. She knows it’s likely to get him killed as well, and that’s a damn shame but it has to happen.
"Shits fucked. Go find Cap, here’s your out. They’ll think your goody two shoes ass is gone."
"Yeah. Good luck."
"Heh. I have to run my best patsy ever or I’m done for."
"You’ll… I’ll see you on the other side of this."
Headcanon accepted :D
I’ve posted an annoying amount about India’s Mars mission already, but.
Just letting everyone know: This. really. happened.
SCIENCE: IT’S THE BEST.
Peggy Carter, day off.
SSR: ‘Agent Carter, WHY are you dressed like a newsboy?’
Agent Lorraine who-is-Natalie-Dormer : ‘I have considered this fashion statement and wish to subscribe to your newsletter.’
Because he gave up Pierce’s name almost casually, like an accident. “Oh, my God. Pierce is gonna kill me.” This from a guy who’s faced down giant metal armor-things spewing laser fire and an alien weapon aimed at him like it was just an ordinary Tuesday and he was wondering where he should go for lunch.
That wasn’t an accident. He wanted to make stone-cold sure Steve knew who was the head of this particular neck of Hydra.
the only way cap 3 may end
I saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier for the third time this afternoon, and came out even more convinced that Jasper Sitwell is a triple agent and is, in fact, working for Fury rather than Hydra. These are my reasons.
1. He gives up everything he knows way too easily.
Okay, so Sitwell is a level 7 or 8 (I forget which) SHIELD agent, which means he is not some wimp, okay? He’s probably jumped out of planes before, and he’s certainly gone through training in dealing with interrogations. He has to know that, even if Steve doesn’t push him off the roof himself, he’s not actually going to let Sitwell die. And even if he doesn’t know that, if he’s really working for Hydra, wouldn’t he die rather than give up any secrets? We’ve seen multiple Hydra agents bite the poison tooth or whatever rather than be captured.
Instead, Sitwell tells them basically everything he knows that can help them. Even once they’re in the car, he’s still telling them stuff.
2. He’s a person of color, and Hydra is based on Nazi ideology. More than that, he’s the only Latino SHIELD agent we know about. People we know are really in Hydra, like Ward, Garrett, and Pierce, are all white, and Agents of SHIELD directly addresses the Nazi issue when Skye is talking to Ward about how much he disgusts her.
3. Sitwell is an excellent patsy, per the one-shot with him and Coulson in the diner.
4. The SHIELD pin that Sitwell is wearing in the scene with Gary Shandling as the Hydra senator is interesting, I think. The senator specifically comments on it, so we are meant to take notice. It is very similar to the SHIELD pin that either May or Coulson (I can’t remember which at the moment) wears in Ragtag—a pin that came from the early days of SHIELD and can be used for communications, possibly through UHF instead of standard radio, which would make it harder for Hydra to detect if they didn’t know to look for it. Sitwell could very well be transmitting everything he hears to someone on Fury’s side.
5. The reveal of Sitwell as a bad guy doesn’t make a lot of sense. When we found out Grant Ward and John Garrett were bad guys, that was a surprise, but it felt like it fit within the mythology of the series much more than this does. Granted, we don’t know Sitwell’s backstory the way we do Ward’s, but everything we do know about him indicates that he’s a good guy, right up until the time he starts telling everyone to try to take Cap down. Which, granted, he is the one giving out the orders there. But I think you could argue that there are moments where he takes just a little longer to tell people to do certain things, moments that could give Cap just a little more time to get out.
Of course, the biggest reasons I have for thinking of Sitwell as a triple agent is that I really like the character and really like Maximiliano Hernandez. Then again, the biggest reasons I had for not believing that Coulson was dead was that I really loved the character and how Clark Gregg portrayed him, so there you go.
I’m not sure how I’m gonna deal with how the Winter Soldier apparently throws Sitwell into the path of an oncoming truck, but there are certainly plenty of work-arounds for that, too.
Hernández made it clear in his post-movie interview that he would ask for a retcon on Sitwell’s death, but he obviously needs backup. This is the fandom that made #coulsonlive - can we do it again?

"When I was a kid, I believed you would become a mermaid when you went in the water to swim".
I really loved the little mermaid as a kid growing up so I had the warped perception you became a mermaid when you entered the water ahaha. This is me learning to swim with my cousin! This piece is for a gallery show at work.
