Evans was so good that we forgot it wasn’t Hiddleston playing Loki pretending to be Steve.
The entire scene is magnificent

The second time Melinda called her mother in the past five years, it wasn’t because she needed a ride out of rural Canada after her top secret government agency went belly-up. Tsai decided it was better to be safe than sorry, though, and packed her machete just in case.
But the coordinates led her to a Holiday Inn outside Las Vegas and, yeah, it’s a long drive but her curiosity is getting the better of her. She asks for Melinda’s favorite pseudonym at the front desk and is told “they” are waiting for her.
She raises one eyebrow at the key—a heart-shaped, ornate key at that.
She taps it thoughtfully against the palm of her hand as she waits for the elevator to make it to the top floor.
Melinda’s room is….not the honeymoon suite. It’s the Valentine’s-Day-barfed-this-room-up suite as far as Tsai can tell. It’s the suite romance goes to to die.
She knocks on the door.
Melinda opens the door in a bathrobe. She also—Tsai notices immediately—has a wedding ring on.
"Mom," she says with a nod and steps aside so Tsai can walk past her into the garish, horrific room.
"Sweetheart," says Tsai to be an ass. She’s been driving for six hours straight, after all.
"Geetings," says the paragon of female perfection also dressed in nothing but a bathrobe who’s sitting on the edge of the bed.
"Mom, this is Lady Sif of Asguard," says Melinda. "Um. Possibly now Lady Sif May."
Sif nods. “I accept this endearment,” she says. “And you shall be granted the title of Lady or, should you prefer, Sir in accordance with our union.”
Tsai sighs. Trust Melinda to marry Asguardian nobility.
"Our clothes are missing," Melinda said as sheepishly as she ever admitted to. "And apparently we got married last night."
I always say this in tags, but I’m going to say it here for once because I’m so tired of people trying to pigeonhole Jane as just the ‘love interest’ and denying all the amazing things she does:
Please notice how Jane is completely focused on the science of Asgard and asking questions and comparing their equipment to Earth scientific equipment.
Now notice that Thor is the one looking at her like she’s made out of magic and unicorns and fairy dust while she’s so engrossed with science, she almost forgets he’s there.
Thor is the love interest in this movie; Jane is the badass scientist who helps save the world. Yes, they’re in love with each other, and yes, Jane gets weak in the knees when Thor is around, but so does Thor, and being in love doesn’t stop Jane from defeating Malekith with her science skills.
Love doesn’t make you weak, and being in love with the lead male character does not mean you are a boring, one-dimensional character who doesn’t do anything of note. Stop dismissing female fictional characters as worthless just because there’s a romance in the story.
