While we enjoyed nearly three hours of epic moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during Avengers: Endgame, all anyone seems to be debating is one of the final moments. You know the one — Old Man Steve Rogers shows up on the lakeside bench, reveals he spent the rest of his lifetime in the past and decides to pass his shield onto the Falcon.

According to the film’s own timeline rules — people were pretty quick to cry FOUL and point out the major issues with old man Captain America, but we’re here to tell you — this wasn’t a plot hole at all. The writers and directors didn’t just go all willy nilly and toss the scene in for story closure. Everything was meticulously thought out and planned — just not fully explained on screen. So, now we will become the true heroes of the story and break down how Steve Roger’s off-screen adventures were not a plot hole at all and how he didn’t break up Peggy Carter’s family or erase them from a timeline — even though it clearly seems that way.

Thankfully, the three hour runtime of Endgame allowed the filmmakers to squeeze in plenty of exposition, explaining their rules of time travel and what we would all expect when the Avengers traveled back in time and through multiple eras. The rules were laid out by Professor Hulk, questions were asked, we were given answers, and everything all seemed to make sense. Right up until Steve Rogers goes to return all of the Infinity Stones and comes back as an old man. So what exactly happened there?! Learn how Captain America was able to travel back through time, live his whole life in happiness and return to the present day where he secured the future of the Captain America mantle for everyone!
