The Falcon and The Winter Soldier
This week’s episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has a number of things I’m looking forward to. But it is also difficult to handle because there is more than one plot element that is difficult to arrange. For example, how exactly does Bucky enter a keycard in Zemo’s book? It’s a minor detail, but it’s one of many that easily feels thrown into the “Power Broker” combination that technically marks half the series. There are a lot of fun moments around this time I will focus on in this roundup, mainly because spending more time thinking about things like keycards is not good for my sanity.

But for now, the advertisement only promises that the GRC is there to help the billions of people brought back by the dust back to their new lives. “Reset, restore, restore” is their motto, but it is not the spirit of John Walker (#NotMyCap, as we call it at Collider), who led attacks on people loyal to standard-bearers in Munich without accomplishing much, but tear up that place.
Meanwhile, Bucky and Sam fulfill a promise last week to visit Zemo, who is currently in prison and can convince Bucky that he can help them find the super soldier serum and / or super soldier they are returning to. Therefore, without consulting Sam, Bucky arranges things in such a way that Zemo can reluctantly escape and the three agree to cooperate.
Fortunately for them, former members of the Zemo kingdom, which means they can fly to the (fictional island) Madripoor to “climb the ladder to the lower levels” (in Zemo’s words). Madripoor presents itself with the Blade Runner’s neon aesthetic and the underworld energy of Fast and the Furious – a great party venue, or for that matter, stepping into a local nightclub and talking to a “mid-level fence” that enforces that rule. places and can there be information about the super warrior serum.
