WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!
The second episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier just aired on Friday (March 26), and it came to an end with a character in a cell.
Wondering who that was who appeared at the end of Episode 2, “The Star-Spangled Man”?
The character featured at the end of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s second episode is Baron Zemo, otherwise known as the main villain from Captain America: Civil War.
In that movie, after his family was killed in the Battle of Sokovia, he began to learn about HYDRA’s Winter Soldier program, using it to frame Bucky for the death of T’Chaka. By the end, he was arrested and taken to the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre headquarters, where he remains in Falcon.
Given all he knows about HYDRA, it’s clear that Bucky thinks Zemo can be helpful for the duo, although it’s unclear how willing he’ll be to help out – or whether he’ll be making another villainous turn again soon.
Also in the second episode, Sam and Bucky finally reunited and we learned what happened that led to them getting back together. We’ve been wondering what would bring them together ever since the series was announced years ago! Here’s why it happened.
