Synopsis
When Bucky is shot by a criminal named Lavender, Cap reveals his secret identity to Betsy Ross and trains her to substitute for Bucky while he is recovering. Betsy, as Golden Girl, warns Cap that Lavender has a knife. After Lavender escapes, Cap says he knew she had a knife and could have protected himself with his shield. Betsy is disconsolate about letting Cap down and gets a lead about Lavender's whereabouts. When the pair encounter Lavender the second time, they apprehend her and Cap gives Golden Girl a kiss. Bucky vows to heal quickly so Golden Girl won't take his place.
