The finale has arrived along with Sam’s debut as Captain America. After a public execution and shield shaming from Bucky, he’s taken on the mantle. I have to say this episode wasn’t very entertaining to me. The story was predictable, especially with the identity of The Powerbroker. This episode mostly served as a launch vehicle for season 2 and villains that may appear in later properties. For some reason Johnny Walker was able to pop back up and join the fight without being apprehended.
The Flagsmashers mobilized to kidnap an international council of politicians. Their leader, Karli Morgenthau (Erin Kellyman) descended further into madness. Some third party bad guys got involved to give Captain Falcon someone to beat up in his new suit. The action sets were insane!
Karli and crew weren’t playing any games. It unsettled me how many people were actually a part of the Flagsmasher movement. Bucky embraced his role as a hero, helping those in danger instead of being the muscle. Sam was dominant the entire time with his new tech and use of the shield. It’s reassuring to see that the new Captain America can actually hold his own in a fight. The Captain & The Winter Soldier finale gets a 6 out of 10.
