Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is five action-packed episodes in on Disney Plus, and approaching the finish line. The buddy-adventure series took over WandaVision’s Friday night spot, pairing Marvel heroes Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) on a globe-trotting mission.

Unlike WandaVision, the Falcon and the Winter Soldier didn’t premiere with two episodes on the same day. It’s been releasing an episode a week, with the sixth and final arriving in the third week of April. While this is fewer episodes than the Wanda and Vision sitcom, the expected episode runtime gives you a little extra, varying from 40 to 50 minutes.

On top of that, the pair team up on a globe-trotting mission to take down an anarchist group called the Flag-Smashers.
