Hmmmm… I’m enjoying a lot of this show but bits of it make no sense to me and honestly leave a bad taste in my mouth. We had one episode of “Maybe the Flag-Smashers have a point” but this episode we see them committing an act of terrorism just to make it clear that nope, they’re supposed to be evvvvvvil despite them having done, uh, pretty much no real evil prior to that IIRC. Sigh. You deserve better, Erin Kellyman.
I’m still very interested in this show’s actual characters (Sam, Bucky, Sharon and more inexplicably Zemo) but the plot and the politics just seem all over the place?
Hooray Wakanda is involved now! Nice to see Ayo again. Wow Bucky that whole country took you in and helped you and you repaid them by freeing the guy who killed their last monarch, geez.
I had literally never heard of Madripoor before but apparently it’s connected with the X-Men? The MCU sure are throwing in a lot of X-Men related stuff without actually showing any X-Men.
I loved the callback to the Civil War “move your seat” moment, heh. Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan have such good chemistry and I hope they do many more movies together, not even necessarily MCU ones.
Halfway through this episode I had the stray thought, “I wonder what non-Americans make of this show” before remembering I was, in fact, not American. Make of that what you will I guess.
