S2E24: Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 5 Breakdown

Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 5 Breakdown

Last week, we broke down episode 4 of Falcon and Winter Soldier, and episode 5, “Truth,” is now streaming on Disney+. This is an episode of WOW. Walker gets what’s coming to him, we continue to stan Sam and Bucky, and let’s talk about that cameo.

This is your spoiler warning if you haven’t watched Episode 5 of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.

Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 5 Breakdown

The show begins with Walker fleeing the scene after he’s slain one of the Flag Smashers and leads to an altercation with Sam, and Bucky. Walker tries to convince Sam and Bucky that he murdered that Flag Smasher because he killed Lemar. Bruh, we all saw what happened, but keep telling yourself that. Sam tells Walker he needs to turn over the shield. I think we all know what’s coming next.

Unfortunately, Bucky and Sam don’t walk away completely unscathed. Bucky suffers some damage to his vibranium arm and Sam’s wings get completely ripped off. Sam takes the shield after Bucky drops it and walks away, much like Steve did in Captain America: Civil War.

We learn that Karli has friends in high places. Just how high? We have some thoughts especially when a leader of LAF sends Batroc with some goodies to help her out in the end. All of this seems to point to the fact that Sharon is not the Power Broker. But her dealings with Batroc? We have some thoughts.

Back in D.C., we get one of the most rewarding scenes of the show yet: Walker is stripped of his Captain America title, his rankings, receives an other-than-honorable discharge, is stripped of his benefits, and essentially only misses getting a court-martial because of his previous service.

Then it’s time for the cameo. Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (portrayed by Julia Louis-Dreyfus) comes in with the same knowing swagger as Agatha Harkness. She knows Walker took the serum, she knows that his taking it makes him very valuable to certain people, and she knows he doesn’t have the shield, which doesn’t matter because the government doesn’t own it anyway (legal gray area and all).

So why is Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine important? She has been around in the comic world for a long time. Contessa has also played for both the good guys and the bad guys. We get into her potential, how she relates to current characters, and where we might see her again. Hint: it’s likely soon.

Bucky catches up to Zemo, or rather Zemo was waiting for Bucky in Sokovia. After an exchange that includes Zemo sharing he crossed his own name off of Bucky’s list the Wakandans show up to take him to The Raft. You remember the Raft from Civil War. You should also remember it’s definitely not escape proof.

Despite Ayo’s warning to be scare in Wakanda she does a favor for Bucky that we see him deliver to Sam later on.

Sam heads to MD to visit Isaiah Bradley hoping to understand more about the shield’s complicated legacy. Isaiah recounts memories of his past in more detail than during the last visit. To say it’s a complicated legacy is an understatement.

After some quality bonding time fixing up the family boat, Sam and Bucky go their separate ways. One to give some much needed closure to a friend and the other to train to wield the shield. That Rocky training montage was awesome.

Falcon and Winter Soldier Post Credit Scene

After Sam teases us with the new suit, thanks for not showing us Sam, we get our first post credit scene. In it Walker is up to something and fans have missed reactions.

What did you think of the post credit scene?

Don’t forget about the end credit scene with this episode!

Interview with Jon Levine

One of the standout moments in the new Loki trailer was when Loki ended up in the TVA’s version of the DMV. Only instead of waiting forever for your number to be called, you have to verify everything you’ve ever said. Absurd. Yikes.

In the room we see an adorable cat, that may or may not be a Flerken, and the paperwork clerk in charge of getting Loki to sign off on an inordinate amount of papers. That clerk is none other than Jon Levine.

We couldn’t wait to talk with Jon about his time on the Loki set. Naturally, we wanted all the details but we know how those pesky NDAs work. However, he shared what he could including what it was like working with the god of mischief himself. From what he told us, that scene is going to be awesome.

As with all our guests, we asked him about his favorite fandoms, characters, and movies, which included a little tangent about Taika Waititi because how can you not. Jon also talked about Cobra Kai, Flerkens, and a lot more.

The Weekly Bugle Vol 24

Falcon and Winter Soldier Major Cameo

We don’t want to get our hopes up as we did with Paul Bettany’s cheeky little joke, but apparently, there will be a major cameo coming in Episode 5 of Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Apparently, it’s not someone we have previously seen before in the MCU however they are well known in the comic book world. 

That opens the door to MANY different characters but we have thoughts on who could be the most likely cameo. And a tangent that wishes for it to be Simu. Sorry not sorry.

However, we are placing bets on it being the REAL Power Broker who happens to be the REAL Mandarin. And the Shang-Chi Easter egg we found gives extra weight to that theory.

Shang-Chi Easter Egg In Madripoor

Marvel has two websites going that relate to their shows, Roxxcart.com for the upcoming Loki and ExploreMadripoor.com for Falcon and Winter Soldier. Right now the Roxxcart one just shows the logo but Explore Madripoor is a functioning site that takes would-be visitors all around the town.

One of the fun things you can do on the site is book a charter. If you type in the shipping container number that Sharon tells the guys Nagel is in, you get some info about it, including a reference to the upcoming film Shang-Chi.

Marvel Legends leaks also revealed more detailed looks at Shang-Chi, The Mandarin, Xialing, and Demon Slayer. We don’t want to spoil it for you but if you want to see the costumes check them out here.

Wynonna Earp Finale

Our favorite female gunslinger has hung up Peacemaker and we are not okay. Sure that finale was super sweet, heartfelt, and tied things up nicely. However, it is hard to say goodbye to the Earp sisters and the best-looking, quickest draw from the old west.

Anyone else hoping another network picks up Wynonna? Maybe we can just get a movie somewhere down the road?

Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 4 Breakdown Podcast

Last week, we broke down episode 3 of Falcon and Winter Soldier, and episode 4, “The Whole World Is Watching” is now streaming on Disney+. It was an episode of parallels, where moments mirrored past encounters but instead showing darker outcomes. We continue to stan Zemo but ultimately our favorite females are back and get all our love this week.

The fallout from that ending is giving us a lot to think about as we wait for episode 5.

Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 4 Breakdown Podcast

Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 4 Breakdown

The show begins taking us back to Wakanda where Bucky lived for a while getting the much-needed help and peace he needed. This scene in particular was heartbreaking and touching. Ayo is there and they are testing out the Hydra words in order to see if his therapy has worked. As Bucky cries, we cried. Give Sebastian Stan an Emmy. Seriously.

In the present, Ayo tells the White Wolf he has 8 hours before “we” come and take Zemo. That ‘we’ of course is the Dora Milaje aka our favorite thing about Black Panther. Our favorite trio devises a plan to find Karli but they are rudely interrupted when Walker and Hoskins show up.

Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 4 Breakdown Podcast Zemo

This episode could have been called the We Told You So. In case you had any thoughts that Walker was at least a somewhat decent human being, he most definitely is not. The most gratifying moments of this show happen when he thinks he can touch Ayo and she and the Dora Milaje proceed to whoop his and Hoskins’ butt. Sam, Bucky, and Zemo seem amused before the first two reluctantly decide to intervene. However, Zemo uses this moment to escape.

Related: Best Quotes from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

A free Zemo is going to be a lot of fun, although we will miss the banter among these three guys.

Sharon also returns this episode leading more fans to speculate she is in fact the power broker. We still don’t buy that completely but she clearly has the hookup. After all, we don’t have access to two satellites.

Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 4 Easter Eggs Sharon

Before he disappeared, Zemo had managed to destroy all but one super serum vial. Walker uses it after his friend Hoskins is captured by the Flag Smashers and it all goes downhill from there. Like Dr. Erskin said in The First Avenger, the serum amplifies traits and personalities. Steve was a good man, Walker is not.

The episode ends with a gruesome and egregious crime committed by Walker using the shield. It was downright sacrilegious and the world was watching via all the phones that were recording the incident. What does that mean for next week? And will Sam and Bucky finally take him down for good?

This past week we got a new look at Black Widow, Loki, plus the Space Jam 2 trailer. Bruce Campbell continued to tease a cameo in Doctor Strange 2 and we got confirmation about another Sam Raimi favorite.

And although we talked a bit about Sharon Carter and how she relates to the Power Broker in our Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 3 Breakdown, we decided we should go into a little more detail. However, we want to hear your opinions. Who do you think the Power Broker is?

Black Widow Final Trailer

the weekly bugle vol 23 black widow podcast

The new Black Widow trailer was released to celebrate the set-in-stone release date of July 9. Finally, Widow is coming. We think it will feel like seeing a Marvel movie for the first time because it has been so long!

Related: Who Is The Taskmaster?

Not only did Marvel share a peek at young Natasha and a young Red Guardian but they revealed the best look yet of Taskmaster. Taskmaster is a very interesting villain and will prove to be a massive challenge for Nat. Not to mention we know some other Widows are running around. Good thing she has her family by her side.

Seriously though, Budapest needs to feature here. Somewhere…

New Loki Trailer

Marvel dropped the new Loki trailer and in case you haven’t watched it do yourselves a favor and do that now.

Is that a Flerken we spy? Who knows but when we see a cat hanging out outside of Earth we automatically think Flerken. Loki is as charming as ever and clearly, has a thing or two up his sleeves. But you can TOTALLY trust him Mobius.

Bruce Campbell Cameo in Doctor Strange 2

A few months back Bruce Campbell tweeted about working on a movie in a city with some people and that it was great. The image he shared was of London where Doctor Strange 2 just happened to be filming. 

Then on April 1st (yes April Fools), he tweeted a piece of the supposed script where his character, the disheveled man speaks to Dr. Strange. He has been known to troll fans before, like last April when he teased a return of Brisco County Jr. However, with his other tweet and the fact Sam Raimi is working on this film…perhaps Bruce might actually be in the movie.

Another Sam Raimi connection also may feature in the film. The Oldsmobile Delta first appeared in the Evil Dead along with other films of his such as Drag Me to Hell, The Gift, and naturally the Spider-Man trilogy. Raimi somewhat confirmed the car would be in Doctor Strange as well saying “It is currently considering a small cameo. It Auto!”

Space Jam The New Legacy Trailer

Welcome to the Jam! The new Space Jam trailer dropped, and we had some thoughts. As fans of the original, this one looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. At the end of the day, Zendaya (who is voicing Lola Bunny) better get to sing! We need another anthem like I Believe I Can Fly but you know sung by someone who isn’t that one person.

falcon and winter soldier episode 3 breakdown

Last week, we broke down episode 2 of Falcon and Winter Soldier, and episode 3, “Power Broker” is now streaming on Disney+. It gave us a lot of callbacks to previous MCU films, comics, and the team-up we didn’t know we needed. Yes, that’s right Zemo is now teaming up with our guys to find out the deal behind the super-soldier serum.

Of course, we have some new theories about where this series might be headed and what future MCU properties it ties into.

Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 3 Breakdown

The show starts off with a commercial commending the virtues of the Global Repatriation Council, but as we know from experience, these types of organizations are rarely as saintly as they appear. Walker and Hoskins are attempting to capture Karli Morgenthau and failing. In another nod to #NotMyCap, Walker loses it on a prisoner yelling in his face screaming, “Do you know who I am?” Bless this random guy because he says what we are all thinking. “Yes. I do. And I don’t care.” It’s true, we don’t care about you. Moving on.

Bucky manages to break Zemo out of a high max security facility a la Ocean’s 11 style. Zemo reveals that he is wealthy, ahem, he is a Baron in case you don’t read the comics like Sam.

Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 3 breakdown podcast Zemo Hood

In Madripoor, a frequent haunt in the X-Men comics we see nods to that franchise and get a few more comic Easter eggs including Sam’s disguise as the Smiling Tiger. That disguise has ties to a certain upcoming MCU property… just saying. In the city, they search for the doctor responsible for the creation of the new super serum. Before they can find him, trouble comes round, because of course, it does.

Sharon Carter returns to help save their butts. She is more cynical than ever and for good reason. They manage to find Dr. Nagel and learn that the Flag Smashers have stolen all the Super Soldier Serum he was able to create.

A new lead has the three co-workers traveling to Riga where Bucky leaves Sam and Zemo to take a walk. Turns out he has called in a friend who you may recognize and who definitely wants Zemo in jail.

The episode is called Power Broker, yet he is never revealed. Some theories point to Sharon being the Power Broker, perhaps it is Zemo, or maybe it’s someone we haven’t seen in a while. What do you think?

Spider-Man No Way Home Set Leaks

Spider-Man No Way Home officially wrapped on filming so we though the leaks might stop. However, two new leaks/rumors have surfaced. The first is more evidence that Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man is in this film. Last week we talked about his stunt double posting a picture allegedly from the set. This week the wrap gifts for the crew supposedly included a shirt with Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man on it. You can see it in the link below.

Also Elizabeth Henstridge aka Simmons from Agents of Shield was spotted leaving Atlanta the day after No Way Home wrapped. Could Simmons have been called in to consult on the multiverse? Maybe Fury decided she needed to come help.

Kross Studios Deathstar Watch

If you have 150,000 you too could own the most ridiculous yet awesome watch on the planet. Kross Studios created a Deathstar watch that is more of an experience than just a watch. You can see it in all its glory here.

The Suicide Squad Trailer

The Suicide Squad dropped its first trailer and we have some thoughts. It actually doesn’t look bad. However, we are afraid they may have shown all the best parts in the trailer. What did you think?

Man From U.N.C.L.E. 2

Henry Cavill is rumored to return, while Armie Hammer needs to be replaced obviously. Some fans think Oliver Jackson Cohen would be perfect for that role. We had another suggestion, which if you know us at all is not a surprise in the least.

Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 2 Breakdown

The show begins with John Walker reliving his glory days at his old high school before taking the field to show off his new title of Captain America. His partner Hoskins who reveals his alias later as Battlestar is also there.

Unlike Steve who hated the pomp and circumstance that surrounded his forced stage shows as Captain America, Walker is reveling in them, taking selfies, signing autographs like a gloried comic con newb. Sam and Bucky watch as this clown parades around with the shield.

They leave to confront the Flag Smashers in Germany where after a battle, Bucky realizes exactly what they are dealing with. Like we mentioned last week these people are strong and now we know why.

This episode did a few things. One, it made us hate John Walker more. Two, it revealed how the Flag Smashers are so powerful. Three, it tackled race in such a poignant and honest way. Four, it made us even more hyped for next week.

John Walker and his buddy Hoskins both have ties to the criminal organization the Power Brokers. The Power Brokers are after the Flag Smashers for stealing what belongs to them, which would be the super-soldier serum that they developed.

Related: Best Quotes from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

We also met Isaiah Bradley, the black Captain America, this week. In the comics and on the show it seems, Isaiah was mercilessly experimented on by both the government and Hydra. Sam also dealt with discrimination for simply being a black man on a street in Maryland.

Our favorite therapist was back and forced our two unlikely friends into a couples’ therapy session. What followed was the most hilarious moment of the show while also being a very heartfelt, tender one as well. After they have a staring contest the heart of their problem is revealed which as often happens in therapy brings them closer together.

Marvel Studios released a new poster promoting the upcoming Loki series coming to Disney+ on June 11. It shows Loki in the custody of the TVA complete with a collar that much like Wanda’s in Civil War is meant to disrupt his power. However, one look at his face shows he is not concerned in the least.

Visually the clock is playing to the notion of his time traveling. It is also a nod to the TVA’s time machine from the comics. We have some thoughts about the lack of hexagons and the multitude of circles.

Andrew Garfield on Spider-Man Set

William Spencer, Andrew Garfield’s stunt double, shared and has since deleted a photo of him allegedly on the set of Spider-Man No Way Home. He also tagged Tom Holland’s stunt double in the caption and liked a comment that asked “are you on the set of NWH?” 

While the multiverse angle of No Way Home has been out there for a while this would be more confirmation that it’s happening. However

Pretty sure the dude is in a Marvel jail somewhere and will never work again. We have seen those NDA’s close up and they cover EVERYTHING.

Patriot Confirmed For Falcon and Winter Soldier

Elijah Richardson who was rumored to be playing Eli Bradley aka Patriot in Falcon and The Winter Soldier is confirmed to be in the show based on an Instagram story from his agency. That means one more for the Young Avengers and we are excited about it.

The show begins on a somber note as Sam is packing up the shield Steve gave him at the end of Avengers: Endgame. But almost immediately the scene shifts and fans are treated to an epic aerial battle. Falcon manages to rescue an operative who was kidnapped by none other than Batroc. Remember him?

Batroc gets away and before Sam heads home he learns about the Flag-Smashers, a group of individuals who think like was better during the blip. They want a unified world with no borders, and essentially no governments.

Sam turns over Steve’s shield to the Smithsonian to be used in the ever-expanding Captain America exhibit.

Bucky continues to have nightmares about the bad things that happened during his Winter Soldier days. He is in therapy which is good for him as someone with PTSD to the millionth degree. It is also a mandated part of his pardon.

The show mixes in classic Marvel humor with a lot of action and heart. There are more scenes about the real-world implications of the Blip, which started in WandaVision. Specifically how hard it is now that everything and everyone is back to “normal.”
