I’d watch a documentary on how [spoiler] stored their look a secret.
First, Sam, Bucky, and John Walker combat in an identical formation as when Bucky and Steve fought Tony in Captain America: Civil Conflict.
John repeatedly saying “I’m Captain America” on this episode is like Tony’s iconic “I’m Iron Man” line, and it additional highlights the variations between the heroes and John.
Additionally, John repeatedly referring to himself as Captain America is one thing Steve not often did. Steve was all the time himself first, and Captain America second. Once more, this simply reveals how totally different John and Steve are.

Sam tells Joaquin to maintain the Falcon wings and that is large as a result of within the comics, Joaquin ultimately takes up the Falcon mantle.
I additionally simply love the picture of Sam taking the protect and leaving Joaquin the wings, contemplating within the comics Joaquin turns into Sam’s sidekick when he turns into Captain America.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus displaying up as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine is likely to be one in every of my favourite issues to ever occur, and it is HUGE. Within the comics, Val is a Russian sleeper agent for Leviathan who additionally turns into an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and works carefully with Nick Fury.
Ultimately within the comics, Val secretly joins Hydra, and goes by the title Madame Hydra. She’s mainly one of the well-known spies, and her look most likely implies that Hydra continues to be on the market someplace.
Additionally, within the comics, Val works carefully with Sharon Carter, and the duo change into a part of the Femme Pressure, an all-women assault staff for S.H.I.E.L.D. Do you see why I’m yelling NOW?
Principally, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is meant to be organising a number of upcoming MCU initiatives, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s arrival is unquestionably resulting in some vital storylines.
Zemo visits the Sokovia memorial, which he first talked about to Bucky and Sam in Episode 3. In fact, Zemo misplaced his spouse and son within the Sokovia assaults from Avengers: Age of Ultron.
When Bucky chooses to not shoot Zemo, he is following his therapist’s second rule for making amends, which we heard about in Episode 1.
Ayo tells Bucky that the Dora Milaje are taking Zemo to “The Raft,” which is the underwater jail that was first seen in Captain America: Civil Conflict, and it is the place Wanda, Sam, Clint, and Scott have been imprisoned.
We catch one other glimpse of Isaiah’s grandson, Eli, when he talks to Sam, and I do know I’ve talked about it earlier than however I simply love Eli a lot.
Isaiah mentions the “Crimson Tails” and “the well-known 332,” which have been different names for the Tuskegee Airmen, a bunch of Black army pilots and airmen who fought in World Conflict II.
Isaiah says that his fellow troopers who took the serum died, which occurs within the comedian books. Isaiah is the one survivor of the 300 Black troopers who have been used as take a look at topics.
Isaiah tells Sam that a few of his fellow troopers have been captured and he determined to go save them, which has similarities to when Steve went and rescued Bucky and the Howling Commandos in Captain America: The First Avenger.
This episode known as “Reality,” which is a nod to the 2003 comedian e-book collection Reality: Crimson, White and Black, which targeted on Isaiah Bradley and his story.
Okay, I hold serious about director Rian Johnson revealing that Apple does not let “dangerous guys” have iPhones on display, and Sharon is out right here calling Batroc on a non-iPhone.

And at last, in our first post-credits scene, John Walker making an attempt to make his personal Captain America protect mirrors Tony constructing the Iron Man go well with in Iron Man.
