The Falcon and The Winter Soldier has received positive reviews from critics and viewers alike. The show focuses on Sam and Bucky dealing with their lives after the events of Avengers: Endgame. The show has a number of bad guys, such as Zemo, the Flag-Smashers, and the Power-Broker. This series is undoubtedly evolving with every episode. With only one more episode to go, the climax is all set to deal with a bunch of loose ends.
Steve passed on the legacy to Sam. But he gave it up. The show doesn’t take much time in establishing that Sam will instantly regret this decision. Even after Bucky confronted him with his own fears, it did not make much of a difference. But things made sense to him after seeing Walker’s reaction and talking to Isaiah Bradley. The show also dwells on the city of Madripoor and Agent Carter. As of recently, we were introduced to a brand new character, Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
With only one episode to go, the show is bound to conclude on a high note. Marvel has released a teaser for this week’s finale of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The new teaser does not include anything new, but the footage from previous episodes. It also has the key lines of dialogue that frame the finale. The teaser merely excited the small percentage of people that haven’t watched The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
Check it out below:
Sam is all set to don his new outfit as Captain America, thanks to Bucky for calling in a favor from Wakanda. Both of them have to be ready for the evil that lurks. Karli Morgenthau and the Flag Smashers are about to launch a terrorist strike against the GRC Conference, while Walker is getting ready to have his revenge. He cannot get over the fact that he was stripped of the title, and is having an existential crisis. His extremely unstable side has been revealed. is hell-bent on killing Karli for killing his partner Lemar Hoskins and is forging his own version of shield.
Falcon seems to be in a bit more trouble. Batroc (Georges St-Pierre) is in on the showdown at the GRC, looking to get back at him for blowing his kidnapping job in episode 1. With so many threats flying around, Sam and Bucky are definitely in for a long ride. But the GRC incident is not the only thing to worry about. There are more factors that can easily weigh in on the climax. Shady players like Power Broker, Valentina (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), and even Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) are bound to play a big role. Just like WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier can also set future MCU projects.
Valentina is at the top of all controversies at the moment. It is not just because of her shady behavior but everything that comes with it. She has a deep history in the comics as well. Moreover, she is directly connected to Nick Fury. Could it be that he is in the center of all this? Well, this is something that only the finale can answer. She initially started as a SHIELD agent and quickly rose in the ranks. It is believable that she can introduce Leviathan as its representative. But considering that she used HYDRA in the comics, she could bring the evil organization back into the MCU. Moreover, she has been involved with Nick Fury in a serious romantic relationship.
