On this episode of the Fandom Hybrid Podcast, the crew does a thorough recap and review of the finale (?) episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. As Karli and the Flag Smashers move forward with their attack on the GRC, Sam finally picks up the mantle passed down to him from Steve Rogers and goes to deal with the problem as the new Captain America. At Sam’s request, Sharon has joined him and Bucky to try to bring the Flag Smasher problem to a peaceful resolution. However, John Walker’s plans for revenge (and a not-so-unexpected reveal of the Power Broker) causes some complications. However, Sam’s impact as the new Captain America starts to bear some fruit as the series comes to an end. Will we see Sam and Bucky again? The final title card for the series seems to suggest so, as well as an announcement that a new Captain America movie (focusing on Sam’s Cap) is currently in development.
Although the series is over (for now), there will be one more opportunity to discuss the series as a whole. Next month, Hanako will be joining a roundtable discussion of the series that will be hosted by the Marvelous Madames Podcast. The show will also feature Darrell of the Taylor Network of Podcasts, and Charles from the Sci-Fi Party Line Podcast. The episode is scheduled for release on Memorial Day, so we hope you’ll check it out!
On this episode of the Fandom Hybrid Podcast, we discuss the penultimate episode (sad face!) of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. As John Walker faces the consequences of his actions, Sam does some soul-searching to figure out what he wants his narrative to be – both at home and as a superhero. Bucky rights a wrong and closes one chapter in his life, and when he makes a delivery to Sam, we see some healing and an understanding form between the two formerly reluctant allies. Sharon puts an asset into play that makes us question her motives, and Karli and the Flag Smashers put their plan into motion to stop the GRC from passing the Patch Act. Only one more episode to conclude the series!

During an undercover operation, the guys are rescued by an old ally. The Flag Smashers step up their efforts to help the needy, and Bucky receives a visitor from a far-away land.
On this episode of the Fandom Hybrid Podcast, the crew expresses their glee at finally seeing the titular characters onscreen together in the second episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. As a new “Captain America” takes the stage, Sam and Bucky team up to try to find out what the Flag Smashers group is up to. Facing a familiar threat, Bucky fills Sam in on a long-held government secret. The guys both struggle with life post-Blip as they figure out how to work together to stop this impending threat, while trying to avoid the elephant-in-the-room, John Walker – the “new Captain America”.
