The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Episode 2 Spoilers

At the end of the first episode, we see the crowning of a new Captain America. The developments stand to change the face of the MCU as the lynchpin of the Avengers undergoes a massive transformation. John Walker becomes the new Captain America. In the comics, he is a superhero in his own right and goes by the name U.S. Agent. The second episode will probably deal with his backstory and why he has been selected as the next Captain America. Moreover, the comics hint at his dark past as the villain, Super-Patriot. Maybe we can speculate that he has a hidden link with either the LAF or the Flag-Smashers.

Moreover, we stand to gain intel about the Flag-Smashers and its leader, who showcases superhuman abilities. Do they have any connecting links with Hydra? Or are they a terrorist organization hell-bent on usurping peace on Earth? We will probably have some of these answers as the second episode rolls on. Also, Bucky ignores Sam’s messages, and it remains to be seen how the two Avengers unite. Colonel Rhodes might be an important figure in further developments as he and Sam Wilson share the same sentiment regarding Captain America’s legacy.
