EDITOR’S ALERT: This is the second in Stacey Jones’ ongoing discussion of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and its place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Ergo, like it says in the title of this post, a world of SPOILERS awaits below the thin red line. Oh and also an assumption that you’re familiar with the MCU!
THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER

by Stacey Jones
Episode Two opens on John Walker unzipping a bag, to reveal the uniform of Captain America, and accepting the mantle of responsibility (in a mirror of Sam zipping up the Shield at the start of episode 1).
