During the hearing at the very end of Winter Soldier:

Hearing General: Why haven't we yet heard from Captain Rogers?

Black Widow: I don't know what there is left for him to say. I think the rock in the middle of the Potomac made his point fairly eloquently.

Wikipedia tells me that the Potomac is the river in Washington, so I'm guessing that's something related to all the water around the Triskelion?

Can anyone explain this line properly for me?

  • per the wiki "The Triskelion was built along the Potomac River on Theodore Roosevelt Island as an enormous complex that occupied almost all of the island". – Valorum Apr 14 '16 at 20:52

The Triskelion is indeed situated in the middle of the Potomac River in the movie, specifically on Theodore Roosevelt Island. My read on the lines is it's referring to the Triskelion having been destroyed by the falling helicarrier. SHIELD is effectively destroyed at this point and Black Widow is indicating that Captain America is moving forward.

The line is WRECK, not ROCK. At which point it's all completely clear :)

  • That would make sense. – FuzzyBoots Apr 27 '18 at 13:10
