As Sam and Bucky continue to search for information about the Super Soldier serum (and the leader of the Flag Smashers), the series is sure to heat up even further, especially with pseudo-Captain America John Walker on their trail. It seems the series is building to a showdown between Sam and Bucky and John and Lemar, and that could unfold as early as this week.
After all, now that Sam and Bucky have broken Zemo out of prison, they’re wanted criminals in the eyes of the U.S. government. (Here we go again.)

Of course, this week’s episode will also need to address the arrival of Ayo at the tail end of last week’s. Why one of the Dora Milaje is in Latvia is anyone’s guess, but it’s possible Wakanda isn’t too thrilled that Zemo, the man who killed King T’Chaka, is walking free.
The next few episodes will also need to deal with the aftermath of the Flag Smashers’ explosion last week, which made Karli Morgenthau’s villain a bit more controversial — mostly because no one understands why she and the Flag Smashers felt the need to blow up a building with a bunch of seemingly innocent people inside.
With any luck, some of these questions will be answered in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s fourth episode, as it officially marks the series being over halfway done. The show has a lot to tie up before it comes to an end. Let’s hope it sticks the landing.
