We’re in the middle of the latest MCU TV series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and while each episode answers some of our questions, it raises some new ones too. The last episode called Power Broker was no different.
Here are five questions about the show that we want to answer as episode 4 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is first released.
Who is the Power Broker?
The mysterious Power Broker is teased as the show’s Big Bad, but we don’t know the true identity of the de facto ruler of Madripoor.
What is Sharon Carter hiding?
Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) was reintroduced to the MCU in the last episode. We hadn’t seen her since Captain America 2016: Civil War. She appeared as a guardian angel for Sam, Bucky and Zemo and saved them from Selby, a local criminal, and their thugs. She also led them to Dr. Wilfred Nagel, who recreated the Super Soldier Serum for the Power Broker. But it is also hiding something. As soon as Sam and Bucky left, she got in a car and told a woman that they had a problem. Maybe she’s the real power broker and the problem could be that you don’t have Nagel to make Super Soldier Serum now that he’s dead?
What are the motives of flag smashers?
The Flag-Smashers in Falcon and Winter Soldier are supposedly bad guys, but the show wants us to sympathize with them too. But we don’t know what they want other than to make the world the way it was after the slip-up (aka Thanos’ snapshot that wrenched half the population of the universe from life).
Will Falcon have Captain America’s Vibranium Shield?
Sam Wilson or Falcon may have given up on the legendary Captain America shield, but he now regrets his decision. Neither he nor Bucky likes Wyatt Russell’s John Walker, a soldier who has been given the Cap identity by the government. Will Sam end up with the shield again at the end of the episode and become Captain America? It seems like the show is slowly but gradually leading to this result.
Will Isaiah Bradley appear again in the upcoming episodes?
The character of Isaiah, a black super soldier imprisoned as a criminal, is too compelling to ignore, and we have a feeling he will appear at least once again in the final three episodes of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. He’s still a super soldier and can hold his own in combat.
The falcon and the winter soldier are streaming on Disney + Hotstar.
