However, when Carol is captured by Skull who are searching her memories for intel she beings to remember her life on Earth as well as Maria. Carol remembers walking to a plane, with a woman who asks if she's "ready to show the boys how they do it." Carol asks if she means that they do it all better. Maria says that's right, before Carol is pulled out of the memory.
Once Carol is back on earth he begins working with Nick Fury to stop what she believes is a Skrull threat. Eventually they return to Maria home where she and Monica are working on a plane together. Maria is shocked to see Carol alive after 6 years as it she was presumed dead in the crash.

You are smart, and funny, and a huge pain inn my ass. And you are the most powerful person I knew, way before you could shoot fire from your fists. You here me? Do you here me? Come here, I got you.”

Behind the Scenes
- “Without being too showboating about it, this is the love of the movie. This is the great love. This is the love lost, this is the love found again, this is the reason to continue fighting and to go to the ends of the Earth for the person that you love. And it’s her best friend and her best friend’s daughter which, to me, is so natural.”
