But there might be more one more player here. Deep into The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 2, as the Flag Smashers are trying to flee in a propeller plane, Karli refers to the people who are chasing them as “power broker’s men”. That’s verbatim from the subtitles in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 2. As Marvel comics fans will know, “Power Broker” (capitalised) means something else entirely. Is this what The Falcon and the Winter Soldier alluding to? Or maybe I’m just reading too much into things? We’ll have to wait to find out.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 2 — titled “The Star-Spangled Man”, directed by Kari Skogland, and written by Michael Kastelein — opens with the new Captain America. John (Russell) is back at his high school where he’s reflecting on his past, when in walks his wife Olivia Walker (Gabrielle Byndloss). She’s only named in the credits; the shared last name and the way they talk all but confirms that they are husband and wife. John is nervous but Olivia thinks he’ll be great. As she leaves, we are introduced to his best friend Lemar (Bennett). John notes that his stint as Cap has been great, but it’s been a lot of “suits, handshakes, speeches, and Senators”. That’s the job, Lemar reminds him and then adds: “Time to go to work,” which John repeats to himself.
