‘Welcome home Agent Carter’

The post-credits scene sees previous SHIELD agent Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) — who’d already been away from home since helping the particular fugitive Steve Rogers, Sam plus Bucky in Captain America: Civil War — getting an excuse from the US govt. On the face from it, that definitely seems such as the ideal call, but all of us know Sharon has long gone to the dark part.

Earlier in the event, it had been confirmed that the particular ludicrously suspicious Sharon was Power Broker, the mysterious power at the rear of criminal island Madripoor plus the one accountable for providing the Flag Smashers their power.

She killed Flag Smasher boss Karli Morgenthau (Erin Kellyman) before Karli can out the girl, so her cover remains intact, plus now her reach will be greater than ever. 

“Start lining up the buyers. Super Soldiers could be away from the menu, but jooxie is about to have complete entry to government secrets, model weapons, you name this,” she tells the contact on the phone right after being pardoned. “There ought to be something for everybody.”

You made that call correct outside a building complete of government workers, Sharon. What if someone noticed you?

This wasn’t probably the most exciting stinger, since it was obviously a startlingly obvious distort. It feels a little bit like WandaVision’s Agatha reveal, without the glorious music number.

US Agent

After assisting Sam and Bucky end the Flag Smashers and shedding his knockoff shield, Walker dyes his Captain America outfit black and officially gets into the employ of Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus).

“Things are about in order to get weird. So whenever they do, we’re not really gonna require a Captain America, jooxie is gonna require a…US Agent,” says Val.

It’s ambiguous exactly what “weird” indicates. In the comics, Val worked for SHIELD unfortunately he revealed to be the Russian sleeper agent. She also infiltrated Hydra to get SHIELD and assumed the particular identity of Madame Hydra, yet her true allegiance has been with the Russians (probably).

We don’t yet understand who MCU Val will be working for and exactly what her plan is, yet her comics history provides lots of options. She can be assisting to restore Hydra or doing work for some brand new clandestine group, and Walker might just be the very first of her morally sketchy recruits.

Captain America reborn

Two years after this was first teased, a single element that wasn’t unsatisfactory was Sam’s debut because Captain America — the outfit sticks near to the amusing book version and will be absolutely glorious. Between this particular and WandaVision, we’re viewing a pattern of collection finales designed to market action figures. And I’m 100% in charge of it.

In their first outing as Cap, Sam does his greatest to acquire a bloodless triumph, arranges a midair heli-copter pilot swap over the particular East River and delivers the stirring speech towards the planet.

“These labels, terrorist, asylum, thug, they’re often utilized to get around the particular question ‘Why?'” Sam says towards the GRC political figures as he implores all of them to use their energy wisely.

Honoring Isaiah

Sam returns in order to Isaiah Bradley (Carl Lumbly), one associated with the country’s first Black Super Soldiers and a man whoms lived out of the particular public eye after getting wrongfully imprisoned for thirty years. He was held out of the background books, but Sam includes a section about Isaiah put into the Captain America Exhibit in Washington’s Smithsonian Air and Space Museum — the very first Black Captain America honoring an overlooked Black hero.
