The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 6 introduced the Marvel Cinematic Universe collection’ second post-credits scene — following a tiny one within the earlier episode 5 — because the season wrapped up for good. But not like its MCU Disney+ predecessor WandaVision which arrange upcoming Marvel motion pictures with its post-credits scenes within the finale, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 6 solely teased a much bigger future for 2 new brokers. We did not get something which may inform us the place we’d see both the brand new Captain America/ Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) or his co-worker Winter Soldier/White Wolf/ Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) sooner or later. Guess we’ll simply have to attend.
Spoilers forward for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 6 “One World, One People”.
Falcon and Winter Soldier episode 6 ending defined
Though there’s just one post-credits scene in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 6, there might simply have been one other. Towards the tip of the finale, we’re reunited with Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) — who was the very best half about episode 5, by which she was launched final week. As she is ready with Olivia Walker (Gabrielle Byndloss), she roughly admits that she is behind the deaths of the opposite Flag Smashers who have been blown up shortly after they have been put in a police van. She then wonders what’s taking John Walker (Wyatt Russell) so lengthy, whom they’re ready on.
Out walks Walker in mainly the identical go well with we have seen him all season on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, besides the blue elements — impressed by Captain America’s colors which are drawn from the US flag — have now been painted black. Walker says as a lot: “It’s the same, but black.” Valentina tells him that issues are about to get bizarre — no thought what she’s referring to — and that once they do, they will not want a Captain America. That’s ominous. Valentina continues: “We’re gonna need a US Agent.” Walker smiles as he has simply arrived in his Marvel comics role.
In the comics, US Agent works for the US authorities — as you’d anticipate — doing their bidding and maintaining a tally of the Avengers. Valentina is assembly with Walker and his spouse in the identical corridor the place his rank was stripped away from him, it appears, signalling that Valentina has some ties to the federal government. But given her manner and what she says, it would not appear to be that the MCU’s US Agent will function in the same capability, though we have seen little or no of Valentina to essentially know what her final plans are. Marvel does have “big ambitions” for her although.
Anyway, there’s extra to that scene. Valentina tells Walker to maintain his cellphone on, simply as she had mentioned in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 5. “Will do, Val,” Walker says just for Valentina to reprimand him, “Don’t call me that,” as she walks away. Walker shouts “Thank you” in Valentina’s course after which celebrates together with his spouse, pumping himself up by repeating “I’m back! I’m back!” time and again.
Falcon and Winter Soldier episode 6 mid-credits scene defined
The precise post-credits scene in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 6 takes place in the identical room as that US Agent scene. But it is centred on Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp), who’s getting a full pardon and an apology from the US authorities. If solely they knew about her Power Broker alter ego that she confirmed earlier in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 6.
“The Carter name has always been synonymous with service and trust,” a US Senator says to Sharon. “Today, we begin to set things right. We begin to repay some of the debt that is owed to you.” In response, a teary-eyed Sharon thanks him for his phrases. The Senator continues: “We’d like to offer you a full pardon. There may be an opening in your old division. Is that something you’d interested in?”
If you will recall, Sharon used to work for SHIELD earlier than it was disbanded, and final labored for the CIA throughout Captain America: Civil War earlier than she went rogue to assist out Captain America/ Steve Rogers (Chris Evans). For that, she was branded a traitor and compelled to dwell on the run. A vengeful Sharon was the Power Broker, supplying Karli and the Flag Smashers with the Super Soldier Serum, and making a reputation for herself around the globe whereas working from Madripoor, an island within the Indonesian archipelago.
It’s how we discover Sharon again in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 3, as Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) takes Sam and Bucky to Madripoor to pursue a lead he has on the serum. After they run into Sharon, Sam promised her a pardon in that episode if she agreed to assist them. And he has come good on his phrases. But he would not know Sharon’s actual reality — and one in every of his first acts as Captain America has been unwittingly putting in a mole within the CIA.
“It would be my honour,” Sharon says to the Senator’s supply in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 6 mid-credits scene. The Senator stands up and claps as he says: “Welcome home, Agent Carter.” Sharon turns round and walks away, smiling to herself. Outside on the cellphone, Sharon tells somebody: “Start lining up our buyers. Super Soldiers might be off the menu, but we’re about to have full access to government secrets, prototype weapons, you name it. Should be something for everyone.”
This confirms that Sharon will proceed to function the Power Broker, now much more in demand because of her coveted CIA place. This is uncharted territory for Agent Carter within the Marvel comics, so I can not wait to see what the MCU has deliberate for her future.
