Things are finally coming to a head in “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” with the Flag Smashers making their move against the Global Repatriations Council and a rogue Captain America ready to take them down along with anybody else who might breathe aggressively in his direction. And it sure seems like Sam (Anthony Mackie) is just about ready to take on the mantle of Captain America.
But he doesn’t just seem ready — you could argue he’s been ready for a while. But now he actually seems willing, as well, for the very first time.
There’s one big problem, though: The Falcon suit was destroyed near the beginning of the episode during Sam and Bucky’s fight with the superpowered John Walker (Wyatt Russell). But help just might be on the way with that.
