Crack of doom. I found myself fast forwarding through most of episode 4.
Must be just me.

The whole theme of powers price and its responsibility was well done. That last shot alone makes up for episode 3.

On the other hand the series is unclear on its overall theme. WandaVision was clear about its themes (grief and coping) by the end of episode 2.

There are several themes that I see.

The pressure and expectations on those who serve.
The fact that they are, serum or no, only human with the human strengths and weaknesses
And the fact that some will never know, appreciate, or even attempt to understand the costs of "defending" what they believe in.

It bothers me Tony or at least Pepper wouldn't have set up some trust funds or whatever for the other Avengers.

This is a very different show than WandaVision, so much darker. And as Steve would say, "Language."

Power without conscience is the closest thing I can come to as a theme for the show. Maybe it will become clearer in the next episode.

I liked the subtle foreboding in WandaVision, right out of the f*cking gate.

Falcon has so far MOSTLY been what I'd expect:  an action series...which is fine; but it definitely plays on themes of how power corrupts.  I'm so far liking the show.

That felt like an awkwardly shoe-horned-in PSA about racial biases in American banking. Might have been better ways to handle that than suggesting Sam isn't getting any compensation for his time. "I refuse to accept Stark's blood money," or something though that dilutes her position.

Yeah, he's got some anger management issues, though in fairness they did just kill his best friend and are responsible for multiple acts of terrorism resulting in deaths.

And the serum just magnified all of Walker's issues, including his PTSD, temper, and low self-esteem.

I thinj that is one of the series' strongest points so far.  Making an effort to cast Walker in a positive light is valuable because it makes the villain more realistic in a way that subverts our expectations.  We expect people to do bad things because they are just bad people; the reality is much more often people who are trying to do right and end up causing terrible harm.  Walker is being portrayed as someone who wants to do what is right, even recognizes that the original Cap was a good person, but his perspective is so warped that he cannot see that his course is making him the bad guy.

There's a verse in the Bible that I am reminded of, Matthew 6:23 "...if the light that you think you have is darkness, how deep that darkness will be!"  Walker thinks he sees the way clearly but he is stumbling through the dark.

Difficult to say. I really hope that they do show him receiving help. PTSD is a very touchy subject for me. It is too easy for Hollywood to use it as an excuse for a character to become violent and an a-hole. Mine manifested itself much in the way that Thor's did.

Walker isn't failing as Captain America because of PTSD, he's failing at being Captain America because he doesn't have Steve Rogers' other superpower - his incredible decency and bottomless well of hope.

Walker is failing because he sees the world in simplistic "we're the good guys and they're the bad guys" terms, and so whenever he comes up against a setback or obstacle he can't imagine any other solution other than to get more aggressive, and punch harder. Everything is black and white to him, where Steve understood the basic humanity of every person - even his enemies.

He seemed pretty chummy with Bucky's therapist, so it's not out of the question.  Even so, Walker clearly is a guy who wants to be a hero, big difference from being a leader.

My biggest issue in all this is, during the 5 years between Infinity War and Endgame, why didn't Steve and Natasha help Sharon to come in from the cold? They both knew about her and worked with her. It really seems that Sharon did not get snapped like Sam and Bucky, based on how well established she is.

It's bugging me. It might be a minor point, but it's out of character for either Captain America or Black Widow to forget a friend like that.

They had just suffered the worst defeat ever. And then their one plan to redeem it failed too.

They probably made a lot of mistakes during those five years. They completely lost track of Hawkeye too.

The follow-up is why didn't Sharon contact them herself? Does she really think that Captain America wouldn't have immediately moved Heaven and Earth to help her? We know that Cap and Black Widow were completely back in the fold by Endgame despite being on the run previously, so clearly they had the means.

I can see making a mistake, but that seems like a lot of really competent people suddenly dropping the ball for 5 years straight. At least with Hawkeye they were effectively respecting his wishes. It's clear Sharon did not enjoy being on the outside.

Sharon went completely off the grid after Civil War (before the 1st snappening). Unless there was a line about her reaching out to Steve or the remaining Avengers, for all they knew, she was dusted as well.

Steve had no issue using guns. I think that scene was meant to highlight Fake Cap was willing to point a gun at his friend if he could take out a bad guy as well.

I really enjoy the series, but it's more than a little predictable. I knew fake Cap was going to get the serum and become a villain, because of course he was. My only grievance is they took a sympathetic villain like the Flagsmashers and ruined any good will I had by having them go full terrorist. Alas.

Flag Smasher was a villain in the comics as well, because he was a violent extremist.

I'd have tossed Firebrand into the mix as well, cheap knock-off power armor with flamethrowers. Would at least give Falcon some air-to-air scenes against another "super."

Yep, Steve's a soldier. He'll shoot people if he needs to.

I'm interested in if they're going to mention none of these super-soldiers are in Cap's weight-class. He had the serum, but he had more of it and got hit with vita-rays to boot. I keep watching the fights thinking "Yeah, but Steve'd take these chumps apart" and then the end of Endgame annoys me all over again.

I'm interested in if they're going to mention none of these super-soldiers are in Cap's weight-class. He had the serum, but he had more of it and got hit with vita-rays to boot. I keep watching the fights thinking "Yeah, but Steve'd take these chumps apart" and then the end of Endgame annoys me all over again.


That occurred to me. You had Steve who had to get vita rays (whatever those are), and you had Blonsky who didn't get vita rays but had to get multiple injections, some into his spine, and now it's just one small vial and that's it? There's got to be some diminished returns there.

Perfect Soldier, I think, wants to be a good man; but he's too f*cking mental.  The process of earning those 3 Medals of Honor I'm sure took its toll on his psyche.

Kinda wondering if Walker ever underwent any therapy for his obvious PTSD or he was just given those three medals.

Walker isn't failing as Captain America because of PTSD, he's failing at being Captain America because he doesn't have Steve Rogers' other superpower - his incredible decency and bottomless well of hope.

Walker is failing because he sees the world in simplistic "we're the good guys and they're the bad guys" terms, and so whenever he comes up against a setback or obstacle he can't imagine any other solution other than to get more aggressive, and punch harder. Everything is black and white to him, where Steve understood the basic humanity of every person - even his enemies.

Walker failed at being Cap right out of the gate. The first time we saw him in action, he pulled a gun.  Super serum or not, Steve would NEVER shoot anyone.  Well, except Nazis


I believe you are mistaken, because when I saw the shot of Walker going through the door with the pistol held over his shield it reminded me of the same shot with Rogers in First Avenger.
