Carol: So, I pass the test?
Natasha: Yes. Though there might be a final exam.
Carol: Fine. Bring it. I’m curious, though… did you really find the deactivation code just at the right time? Or were you holding it in check, waiting to see how I would react to the crisis? If I was willing to die for the cause?
Natasha: Ms. Marvel… that’s a good question. It really is. But I don’t play twenty questions.
