You stared blankly at the hand in front of you, still attempting to process his mere presence. After a few moments of silence, Bucky nodded and gave a slight grin, resting his extended arm on the edge of the bar.
“Tend to get that reaction,” he chuckled. ・:*:・゚☆
You stared blankly at the hand in front of you, still attempting to process his mere presence. After a few moments of silence, Bucky nodded and gave a slight grin, resting his extended arm on the edge of the bar.
“Tend to get that reaction,” he chuckled. You glanced up, meeting his eyes for the first time since he sat down. A look of worry and sympathy met your own hesitant gaze.
As you held eye contact, your mind reeled through what he’d said, trying to sort out what exactly he meant. Amends? What does he mean ‘make amends’? You didn’t realize that you’d asked your questions aloud in a frantic whisper until the bass of his voice rushed to your ears, making you jump.
“Sorry to startle you. Uh, it’s a part of this whole process I’m going through,” he explained. He paused, waiting for some sort of reaction, but you sat frozen still. “I’ve been meeting with different people that I hurt — no, the Winter Soldier hurt — over the years on Hydra missions. You’re one of the last few names on my list.”
You gave a small nod, eyes darting back to the hand resting against the bar. His list? you wondered. It was then that you noticed how long you’d been holding your breath. You let out a small sigh and briefly closed your eyes, attempting to ground yourself.
“Why?” you asked, shifting your gaze back to his. Your voice was small, barely above a whisper, but he managed to hear you.
Although quiet, your question seemed to grant him some relief from the silence that had been hanging. Taking in a deep breath, he explained, “You were one of the few people who survived Hydra’s attack on The Tribune. I’m sure you know that, though.”
You nodded, mind taking you back to the scene at the hospital in the aftermath of the attack.
Of the forty or so staff members in the office at the time, only six of you had survived. As you laid in your bed at the urgent care clinic, nurses and doctors rushing around you, you kept your eyes pinned on the entrance, praying that more of your coworkers would be wheeled in. After hours of watching from your bed, you came to accept that it was just you six that had made it. You’d lost your best friend and boss. The only person you knew well of the survivors was your boyfriend at the time, who you watched be rushed into the ER as a piece of shrapnel stuck in his side was dangerously close to shrinking that survivor count down to five.
You were snapped back to the present by the clinking of glasses behind the counter, Vincent cleaning up after a party had left.
“Are you going to hurt me?” you asked, meeting Bucky’s gaze once again. He winced at the question, his eyes showing a shimmer of empathy.
“No, I’m not,” he assured you. “I’m actually here to say that-.” He paused, taking a deep breath before continuing. “That it wasn’t me who did those things.”
Confused, you arched your eyebrow, to which he continued.
“I was controlled by Hydra for almost about seventy years. They kidnapped me after an accident in Europe while I was on active duty and brainwashed me, making me into a living weapon. I was the Winter Soldier, they made me an assassin. But I wasn’t me, I had no control over myself.”
You nodded, vaguely familiar with the story. You’d known and read about him as the Winter Soldier, a Hydra assassin. While his pardon signified that there was a difference between Bucky and the Soldier, your memories subconsciously considered them as one.
Bucky’s eyes returned a soft and regretful look, glancing down at his metal arm before holding out his palm between you. You stared at it, eyes running over its ridges and flecks of gold.
“They gave me this, the arm,” he explained. “Well, they gave me the old one. This one’s new, from a friend in Wakanda.” Images of his old silver arm raced, memories of the way his metal fingers firmly gripped his gun, a red star painted on his shoulder.
Your eyes flickered between his dark metal fingertips and his gaze, trying to piece together what any of this meant and why he was here in front of you.
“What do you mean by making amends?” you asked again. He’d given the gist, but you couldn’t understand why he was here or what he wanted from you.
Bucky shifted in his seat, relaxing a bit as he sensed your fear turning into confusion. He delved into explaining the process of his making amends, telling you about the types of people on his list and how he wanted to give people closure. He talked about the memory wipes, the separation between him and the Winter Soldier. You nodded along, mind finally wrapping around the concept when he abruptly stopped his explanation.
“I’ll let you go,” he offered, aware of his intrusion on your evening. “I just wanted to explain, you know,” he paused. “That I’m not that person anymore. Or, I guess, that I never was.”
He glanced at the bar top before pressing his hand against the surface, pushing himself out of his seat and onto his feet.
“Thanks for listening to me. I’m sorry for-“ he glanced at the ground before meeting your gaze again. “For everything.” He turned to leave, straightening his arms and stepping out from between your seats.
Your sudden grasp on his arm startled him, Bucky whipping his head around to face you again. He'd never been able to shake the fight or flight instincts that Hydra had intensified in him.
“You don’t have to go,” you suggested. “I mean, you can, but we can talk about it more.”
Bucky nodded slowly, not used to your reaction. Most people were glad to see him leave. But you wanted to know more.
“I think talking about it could help. You know, with the memories and stuff. Plus, I don’t really want to hate you if it wasn’t you that hurt me,” you explained.
Glancing between your grip on his jacket sleeve and your gaze, he hesitantly sat back down. “What do you want to know?” he asked.
“Do you remember it?” you pressed. You relived the memory each night in your sleep and every day at work for years afterwards. It was only recently that you’d been able to suppress it, sometimes making it a couple of days without acknowledging what had happened. How did he even remember you?
“I remember all of them,” he admitted, a hint of sorrow in his voice.
Wanting to break the tension, you waved Vincent over to your end of the bar and motioned towards Bucky’s empty hand. He ordered a glass of whiskey before turning back to you, a hint of a smirk on his lips. Maybe a drink would loosen him up, you thought, unaware of the serum’s restrictions.
While the alcohol had no effect on him, having the drink in his hands seemed to help him relax. He asked about how you’d been faring in the years since the attack, to which you shared briefly of the recurring nightmares and post-traumatic stress you’d faced. You feared that you’d shared too much, but he nodded along, a sympathetic look in his eyes. You weren’t opening up much but talking about it with him helped.
It wasn’t taking you long to recognize that the man in front of you wasn’t the same man who had eyed you down the barrel of his gun. Although difficult, the eye contact and talking with him helped you make this distinction, as did his understanding and willingness to listen. Even when you were sharing about the effects of the trauma had because of the Winter Soldier, things you knew probably weighed heavily on him, he nodded along and gave you his full attention. You felt comfortable telling Bucky these things, and he seemed comfortable around you; neither of you were fully relaxed, but at least were trying to talk.
“What have you been up to all these years?” you asked. “Since Tony, you know …” Ever since everyone came back from the snap, you’d heard about him from time to time, still referenced to by most news outlets as ‘the Winter Soldier.’ You knew he’d been pardoned and seen pictures of occasional sightings, the metal arm a dead giveaway of his identity, but knew little else. He told you he’d been living in Brooklyn the past few years, to which you were shocked that you’d managed to avoid seeing him for so long.
“I’m surprised we haven’t run into each other until now,” you quipped.
Bucky smiled, but you could see the subtle grimace beneath the expression. “Yeah, I’ve been steering clear of anywhere you’d be,” he admitted. Your eyes widened — how had he known where you were? Where you worked now? “I’ve got people who’ve helped me avoid running into you or anyone else around here,” he explained as though he could read your mind, but offering no further explanation. Truthfully, you didn’t want to know the details.
“Why now? What made you come here tonight?” you asked. It had been nagging you the entire evening — what made him come to see you now?
“I’d heard you come here in the evenings,” he offered, exposing yet another detail you didn’t really wish to know. “Figured I’d give you some time before just showing up, didn’t want to scare you more than I have.”
You nodded, grateful that he hadn’t come sooner. Things had gotten better with the nightmares and flashbacks in the past few months thanks to work getting busier, and if he had come to see you any earlier you would have undoubtably had an instant panic attack. You were admittedly creeped out that he knew you would be here, but given his connections, you guessed that he had intel on nearly whatever information he wanted about anyone. Plus, talking with him had proven fruitful for you, helping you disconnect Bucky Barnes from the Winter Soldier. He didn’t say it, but it helped him too, helping him humanize himself.
Over an hour had passed since he sat down, and your stomach twisted in hunger. You’d had two drinks without eating dinner; it was beyond time for you to go home and eat. As the conversation came to a lull, you shifted to face him fully, looking him in the eye.
“Could we meet again?” you ask hesitantly. “I think it may help me, you know, with processing what happened. Only if you want to, though.”
He paused to consider your proposition and you watched as the wheels in his mind turned, weighing the possible outcomes. A moment passed and the corner of his mouth twitched upwards in a subtle smile. He nodded in approval.
“I’ll come back by soon,” he assured. You nodded and stood up, grabbing your phone and bag before adjusting your shirt, smoothing your hands over your jeans.
“I’ll see you soon, then.” You gave a small nod and did a quick wave to say goodbye, not comfortable with shaking his hand quite yet. While talking to him helped, you weren’t exactly relaxed around him. It was going to take some time for your mind to fully separate him from the man who had threatened your life and ended so many others’.
Fifteen minutes later you were at your front door, fumbling in your bag for your apartment keys. Once inside, you set your bag in its usual spot on the bench in the doorway and walked to the kitchen, opening the fridge to grab the takeout you’d saved from the night before. You dished out your food onto a plate and stuck it in the microwave. As you waited for the timer to go off, you leaned back against the counter.
Besides the sound of the microwave whirring and the occasional honk from the street below, your apartment was completely silent. The silence always gave you time to think, whether for better or worse. Tonight, your mind wandered to the conversations you’d had, running through the details he’d shared and wondering if you’d said too much. Was meeting him again a good idea? Was this really going to help, or were you doing yourself more harm than good?
Just as you began to question yourself, the oven timer rang through the kitchen, making you jump. You grabbed a fork and took your plate from the microwave, walking to your living space to curl up on the couch. Normally you’d put on the news, your mind always focused on work and the need to stay up to date on current events. But tonight, you ate in silence, instead looking out the window at the city street below as your mind wandered back to your interaction with Bucky.
You desperately hoped that this wasn’t a horrible idea.
A/N: Thanks for reading chapter 2! I posted both chapters 1 and 2 back-to-back, and am gonna take a little bit to get chapter 3 up but already know where I want for it to go. This is gonna be a bitttt of a slow burn, if you haven't picked up on that yet. Thanks for sticking around!

His eyes were fixed on yours, gaze intense despite the physical distance between you. If the sight of his metal hand hadn’t confirmed that it was him, then his face solidified it. You’d seen this exact glare in your nightmares for years now. Although nearly a decade had passed since the last time you saw him, you had never been able to shake the memory. It was him, and you were sure of it. ・:*:・゚☆
Your thumb swept around the surface your glass, collecting the droplets of condensation that had begun building up. With one final swig you downed the remainder of your gin and tonic, eyeing the entryway on the lookout for any newcomers.
“You all done for the night, y/n?” Vincent wandered over, dish towel in hand, to collect your glass that was now only filled with ice and a slice of lime. He knew your routine by now — you only ever came by for a single drink after work, people-watching as you unwound before heading home to your quiet apartment. While you hadn’t ever told him that last part, he figured that if you had somewhere urgent to be that you wouldn’t be here every night, although he’d never ask.
“I’ll have another, actually,” you declared, voice unsteady as you weren’t sure in your choice. Typically you’d have one drink and leave, occasionally staying around a bit longer to sip on some water if you really didn’t want to go home that night. But the week had been long and it was only Wednesday; you wanted — no, needed that second drink.
“Sure ‘bout that?”
“Yea, I’m gonna hang around a bit longer tonight.” Vincent’s eyebrows raised as he did a slight nod, reaching below the counter for a new glass, to which you let out a playful scoff. “Don’t act so surprised,” you teased, “I mix it up sometimes.” While you rarely talked, you and Vincent had become more comfortable with your banter over the past year or so. Even the most guarded of patrons like you couldn’t avoid small talk with the bartender — especially not if you were a regular.
As you waited for your drink you scanned your surroundings, looking to see if anybody new had come in for a drink. Weeknights tended to be slower, but there were a few couples and groups of friends scattered throughout the room. You and a man no younger than 50 were the only ones seated at the bar, him closer to the entrance while you sat furthest away at the seat you knew had the best view of the place. Almost every night you were in this exact spot, sipping slowly on whatever drink you’d ordered, checking your phone for the occasional text message or work email, and people-watching. It was pretty rare for you to spend more than an hour there in one evening, but tonight it had been nearly an hour and here you were ordering a second drink.
You jumped when Vincent placed the new glass in front of you, your mind focused on the other people scattered throughout the room. He let out a light chuckle as he turned around, walking towards the other side of the bar; he was pretty used to your skittishness by now. Hand wrapped around your new drink, you brought your focus back to your surroundings. A couple seated at a small table to your right engaged in small talk, exchanging pleasantries in-between awkward sips of their drinks. Definitely a first date, you thought. A burst of laughter from a booth further away caught your attention, where a group of men in suits sat meeting for a drink after work. Aside from that, there was little commotion in the bar tonight. While commotion made for fun people-watching, you preferred the gentle hum of casual conversations on slower nights, the occasional clinking of glasses from Vincent’s cleaning or a new table being served.
Realizing a few minutes had passed, you grabbed for your drink and took a sip, eyes skirting over the rim of the glass as you spotted movement in the entryway.
Suddenly, you wished you hadn’t ordered that second drink.
A tall figure entered the bar, shoulders swaying with each step. When he came to a stop you finally took him in, eyes scanning over the black leather jacket that spanned his broad frame and running down to his hands. Dressed in all black, the flesh tone of his hand stood out. Which made the metallic black of his left hand all the more apparent, confirming what you had hoped was just another instance of unnecessary panic.
The brooding figure wasn’t foreign to you.
Your eyes glossed over as you remembered the last time you’d seen him all those years ago. While the nightmares weren’t as frequent and you were able to go days at a time without thinking about it, you were still able to vividly remember the moment. The way his eyes had met yours, menacing and unforgiving as you held back a wail of pain from the pressure of debris pressing on, or into, your torso. The fear that ripped through you when you registered the M4A1 in his tight grip, barrel pointed in your direction. The way you laid there, shaking and ears ringing, wishing that he, whoever he was, would keep moving past you, that he would leave you be. He had done just that, only pausing for a moment to assess your helpless position before lowering the barrel of his gun and trudging onward in his search for his true target.
So many times since then you thought you’d seen him again, only to sigh with relief when you saw the two flesh hands of whoever had startled you.
But this wasn’t one of those moments, and the sight of his metal hand confirmed it. It wasn’t silver like the one in your memory, but there were only so many guys out there with bionic left arms.
You came out of your trance to find that his eyes were fixed on yours, gaze intense despite the physical distance between you. If the sight of his metal hand hadn’t confirmed that it was him, then his face solidified it. You’d seen this exact glare in your nightmares for years now. Although nearly a decade had passed since the last time you saw him, you had never been able to shake the memory. It was him, and you were sure of it.
With a slight roll of his shoulders and a subtle nod, he dropped his gaze to the floor and began his slow descent towards the bar.
The sip of gin and tonic you had taken still sat on your tongue as you finally lowered the glass, letting the liquid slide down your throat and feeling the tingling sensation travel down to your chest. Your breath was shallow as your hands started to shake, to which you began fidgeting with the closest thing in front of you — the paper napkin that had been under your glass. As you ran your fingers along its corners and kept your eyes glued to the bar top, you felt his presence near yours, confirmed by the sound of heavy footsteps that approached.
The scent of fresh balsam and a bit of mint flooded your senses as you noticed him standing to your side, giving you a moment to take in his presence before sliding into the seat to your right. Having kept your eyes trained on the napkin at your fingertips, you subtly glanced over, noting the metal arm that was closest to you. It’s really him, you confirmed. Instead of a reflective silver like the arm you remembered, this one was much darker, a black metal with hints of gold in between the plates. You couldn’t see further up than his wrist, the rest of his arm concealed by the jacket.
It took everything in you to refrain from bouncing your leg against your barstool. Maybe if I stay as still as possible, you thought to yourself, I’ll make it out of here alive. You had no clue what he wanted and it terrified you.
The desire to fidget became all the more intense as you felt him shifting his upper body to face you while in his seat. Your breath hitched when his flesh hand came into view, extended for a greeting in your direction. He let out a low sigh as you shifted your gaze slightly, glancing at his hand before sheepishly making eye contact with the man who had once both threatened and spared your life. You watched as he slightly parted his lips, allowing for a gentle smile to form at the corner of his lips.
“Long time, no see, Miss y/n. I’m James ‘Bucky’ Barnes, and you’re a part of my efforts to make amends.”
A/N: Thank you for reading the first chapter of this story! I'm currently drafting up what will come next, but am in the end of a semester so it may be a few days until I have something ready to publish. This is my first longer work and I'm looking forward to the journey. Stay tuned for updates, and please let me know if you have any comments or questions!

DON’T REBLOG
Tumblr media
Bucky does not return to therapy and he doesn’t give his therapist Steve’s notebook. The notebook remains either on him or in a box under his bed. It is one of the few things Bucky has left of Steve it’s also something that deeply helped him.
Bucky does not finish his ‘list’ of people he needs to apologise to. The list is too long. He does tell Yori what happened to his son and promptly leaves after that. Bucky’s recovery largely deals with him coming to terms with who he was and what HYDRA made him out to be.
Bucky is fully aware that actions have consequences and the people he hurt deserve to know what happened to them. He will tell them, if they where ever curious (Like how Yori wondered what happened to his son). Bucky will explain, will tell them every detail.
The winter soldier and james barnes are two different people even if they share the same body. over time through his own methods of healing he learns a lot of new things. it’s not just making amends but getting rid of the conditioning he was forced under, it’s having self confidence again, its coming to terms with his own body.
He comes to accept his past and move on long before the events of FATWS, to try for a better future. He attends weekly VA meetings with Sam (sometimes without). And sometimes here and there he will talk to a therapist ( a new one). Bucky overall has come to terms with his past and is moving forward trying to find purpose in his life.

Let’s fill the sinks with orbeez

Hiya! (diff anon btw)Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us about TFTWS/CATWS! I was pretty much nodding my head continously while reading your answer haha xD What did you think of Bucky's arc, though, specifically, if you don't mind me asking? As well as Sebastian Stan's portrayal of him? Thx again! Wish you a wonderful day! ^_^
I love that they lured us in with Seb Stan’s big sad eyes and then had his arc so seamlessly hand off to/interweave with Sam’s? It may sound cynical, but I mean it genuinely. As a white American, I am deeply programmed to empathize with the Tragic White Boy, and there has never been a more empathy-inducing tragic white boy than Bucky Barnes. They’ve taken all the major elements of the golden boy and the Byronic hero and combined them with key components of the damsel in distress/femme fatale. He’s basically a weapons-grade empathy production facility.
and then they give him this emotional arc from episode 2 to episode 5 that starts when he says “if he was wrong about you then maybe he was wrong about me.” Now, I know at least one (white American) fan who was like “why was sam to mean to bucky?” in that scene. The writers don’t explain what’s going on explicitly to the audience, because it should be pretty obvious. Bucky took a conversation about a difficult choice Sam was facing and made that conversation All About Bucky. We know exactly where Bucky is coming from here, but Bucky clearly has no real idea where Sam is coming from. Bucky figures out exactly what he did wrong, mostly off-screen, while Sam is still grappling on-screen with that very same choice, because Sam is the main character, and it’s his story. Eventually, Bucky comes back and apologizes, all on his own. It’s probably the first really successful amends-making he does on screen, so it’s crucial to his character arc. “Steve and I never thought about what it would be like for a black man to carry the shield.” Neither has a pretty large chunk of the audience, in all probability! That’s what the whole show is about! and because the (white American) audience is so deeply programmed to feel empathy for Bucky, this was a moment that probably made the whole series click for a lot of people. If I’m honest, that, combined with the moment when Sam says “you weren’t amending, you were avenging” was when the whole show clicked into place, for me. I am wildly aware that this maybe says some pretty not great things about me, but I’m American too and I’m just not immune to the white supremacy inherent in the system I was raised in. 
So, TLDR, this whole throughline is something that I admire on a character level because it’s such a good arc for Bucky to have. It’s also something I can admire as a writer because I think it’s a super-effective way to hammer home a message that the audience isn’t primed to hear. And I also think that it has done a little bit to make me personally a better, more empathetic human being. Like, what more can you ask from a storyline?

Open Starter | A drink and a bitter pill
The man’s laugh was soft. Bitter.
At another time, in another life, a laugh like that from Bucky Barnes would have been chilling.  Bucky threw back the rest of his beer and tapped his fingers on the bar top. Taking a minute to mull over his response. He didn’t deserve peace.. As if he didn’t know that. As if he didn’t repeat it to himself every night as he stared at the wall and his sins clawed at his body and heart till he almost suffocated. Bucky rolled his shoulders and stands up slipping the bar tender the money he owed. 
“I am trying to make amends. I know I might not be able to fix everything I broke or even half of it... But at least I’m trying,” he speaks calmly. Forcing down the sarcastic remarks and bitter tirades. This wasn’t the time nor place. Besides, it wouldn’t do any good. He’d take the loss on this apology, he couldn’t make anyone forgive him. 
“Have a good night now.”

it’s like. it’s like. it’s like. normal dude. normal dude with a normal life. normal dude has a largely normal if sickly best friend. normal dude gets shipped off to war. normal dude’s sickly best friend who tries to fight the world becomes symbol of a nation without him knowing. normal dude gets captured and experimented on. normal dude’s best friend saves him. normal dude covers his best friend because like yeah he’s my best friend. normal dude falls off a train. normal dude is presumed dead. normal dude becomes prisoner of war for 70 years. normal dude is brainwashed. normal dude is tortured. normal dude is forcibly molded into a weapon. normal dude kills countless people because he was brainwashed and tortured and turned into a weapon for 70 years. normal dude runs into his best friend who is ALSO miraculously alive after the better part of a decade. normal dude breaks his programming after 70 years because underneath it all he is a good person. normal dude is no longer brainwashed and tries to do good. normal dude is normal except for the fact that he went through hell and just wants to make amends for things that are not his fault. normal dude is a hero because he chooses to be one. how is that not compelling how does that not give you worms of the brain to think about. bucky barnes is just some guy and i like him so much.

           he’d been a prisoner of war.  a mission took him to the danube river, near the alps.  he and his team were tasked with commandeering a train full of supplies going to a terrorist organization known as hydra.   brainwashed, experimented on, and everything in between, james barnes was finally set free by the special forces unit known to many as the howling commandos.  
                          his former unit.
          hydra grafted a cybernetic arm to his left side in order to compensate to damage done during his fall off the train.  it was heavy and the tech clunky but he’d learned how to fight with it, even use it to his advantage.
          after his rescue, bucky noticed a mark he’d never seen on his body before.  it looked oddly like a chinese dragon.  had they burned him?  was it some kind of tattoo?  he didn’t think anything of it and brushed it off as one more thing to work through.
          on a walk through brooklyn park one night, bucky found an odd looking old man sitting on one of the benches.  at first, he worried he was hallucinating because there was a harvester hat and....ninja tabis?  a temple was mentioned; a temple where bucky would be able to get some of the answers he’d been searching for
          as weird as it sounded, instinct took him to the temple.  bucky half expected to find nothing at all.  not only was the temple real but he was met with other individuals with the same mark on their body.  they talked to him of tournaments, realms, and a tournament that meant the fate of the universe.  it sounded like a book he’d be interested in reading only, without him in it.  what really drove everything home, though, was the arcana.  seeing fireballs and fighters teleporting out of hats, controlling electricity and energy blasts.  when pushed to discover his own inner power bucky discovered he could go invisible.  he could become a ghost on the battlefield, able to sneak up behind his enemies.
          he’s not sure if he’s ready to fight but bucky is ready to start making amends for all the damage he caused when his body wasn’t his own.

The Mosley Review: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier
Tumblr media
What I'm loving about this new wave of Marvel shows is that each series is exploring the main roster of The Avengers more thoroughly. Each series has its distinct tone and focus that lines up with the tones that were set forth by their preceding films. WandaVision took it to the more magical and somewhat supernatural world and I enjoyed that, but this brings the tone back down to Earth and deals with the world post Blip. The political ramifications, the struggle of those who have had 5 years of their live taken away and how they've created an organization to help them. The Captain America films dealt with the more governmental element of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and that element brilliantly continues in this series. We get more time with titular characters and we peer into their lives as they both try to take on a sort of normal life with a growing global terrorist movement. There are many themes that are explored and I don't want to spoil all of them, but they are so pertinent to today's social climate and economy. We are constantly looking to heroes to lift us up, but what happens when that responsibility is entrusted to a hero that doesn't feel it belongs to him? That is one of the major themes that are explored and I loved the aftermath of a certain choice that is made.
Tumblr media
Anthony Mackie once again does a fantastic job as Sam Wilson/The Falcon. Ever since Steve Rogers passed the shield to him at the end of Avengers: Endgame, Sam has always struggled with the notion of taking on the mantle and I loved seeing work through that feeling. He soon realizes that giving it away was a terrible mistake. I also loved seeing Sam go back home to his sister Sarah played wonderfully by Adepero Oduye. She keeps him grounded in the best since and reminds him of what a civilian life is like. Sebastian Stan returns as Bucky Barnes the former Winter Soldier and he has a fulfilling character arc. We get to see how he over came the brainwashing of Hydra in a beautifully acted scene. Even though he is trying to reconnect to the world, his nightmares still plague him as he begins to make amends for his past. Once he reconnects with Sam, the story really takes off. The two of them together were fun to watch as they pick at each in a great buddy cop style. Their chemistry really reminded of Riggs and Murtaugh from the Lethal Weapon films. They were perfect together and you see their bond grow naturally. Wyatt Russell joins the MCU as John Walker and he becomes the government's version of the new Captain America. Wyatt delivers an excellent performance as Walker and you see the man that is trying to live up to the title, but you also see how that expectation and devotion starts to corrupt him. There is one character that nearly steals the entire series and his scenes had the most powerful message of societal response to a possible black Captain America and knowing what comes with carrying such a burden. Carl Lumbly gave an Emmy Award worthy performance as Isaiah Bradley and I loved that we got to dive into his troubled past and how the original Captain America changed and/or ruined his life. His scenes with Sam really cut deep and revealed the more troubling history behind the significance of the shield. His story actually correlates to actual a dark part of World War 2 history which was truly heartbreaking.
Tumblr media
Emily VanCamp returns as Sharon Carter and I loved that she is still the badass we saw in Civil War, but she has a new edge about her and we see the consequences of her actions from the past films. She has a great fight sequence in a shipping yard that was tricky to keep from being overly violent for Disney, but it works never the less. The antagonist of the series was fascinating and not exactly wrong, but their methods were. Erin Kellyman was fantastic and strong as Karli Morgenthau. As the leader of the rebelious and dangerous terrorist group The Flag Smashers, you see her point in making the world understand why the people that returned from the Blip shouldn't be treated like refugees in their own regions. Her conviction to these ideals are right, but her violent nature is where she failed. I agree with her message, but not her methods. Erin delivered a powerful and empathetic performance that'll truly be remembered. Daniel Bruhl returns as Baron Helmut Zemo and I loved every second that he was on screen. He steals every moment with his elegant and suave attitude as he glides through scenes. You spend more time with him and he asks the hard questions and also givers answers to them. I can't believe it, but at times Zemo was right.
Tumblr media
The score by Henry Jackman was excellent and I loved his  slower and darker versions of The Winter Soldier and Captain America theme. The score really becomes heartfelt and powerful in the scenes between Isaiah and Sam. The cinematography of the show was gorgeous and the action sequences are on par with what you see on the big screen. Most shows nowadays feel like a long form story with film qualities, but this was long and fantastic film told over six different chapters. I loved this series and it was right up there with the Captain America trilogy in tone and quality. Definitely check this show out if you're still on the fence about continuing the MCU on television. All episodes are currently streaming on Disney+. Let me know what you thought of the show or of my review in the comments below. Thanks for reading!

I mean not *the* lead because obviously that’ll be Sam, but like part of the main cast? I want Marvel to let is get to know him as Bucky Barnes now that he’s healing, and not the Winter Soldier. I just need more Bucky centered content, he’s been in the background (until this show) of the MCU for so long, with little to no control on his life. I want to know more about what his personality, his life (currently), what’s his future looking like?
hi nonnie! sorry for not replying earlier i totally fell asleep and then i had stuff to do today. i knew you ment not ‘the lead’ but i’d be surprised if he’d be the 2nd lead in a new cap movie. i mean he was the most integral part of the trilogy (cw did him dirty but still he was very important there).
i would LOVE to see him in an important role (with more than his usual 5 lines in the movies) but i just dont know how realistic that is, so i dont want to get my own hopes up if you know what i mean? i fully agree, i need more of his personality and what he does now, what is the aftermath of him admitting he had no choice, i felt his ‘making amends’ part was fully rushed and wouldve love to see more. and YES his future i am VERY interested in, would love to see him doing absolutely anything - if he gets his happy ending he deserves in the end

I just finished the final episode to season one. Nothing but RESPECT for Sam. He's just... I have too many words. And what he did for Isaiah. And his words to the Senators. And just him being his kind, caring, BEST self. He doesn't need the serum. He's just awesome as is.
And Bucky. I'm glad he could make his amends.
But, OMG Sam. He is amazing. I love Sam because he is such a good, kind, caring, respectful person. ❤ 💕💞
Okay imma be real but what he did for Isiah is proof they don’t got enough Black writers— Isiah deserved reparations
Also like. Maybe this’ll help convince people to actually do the same with the real life Black history and figures.
(Sorry Ben Barnes just showed up and I’m hella distracted)
BUT SAM IN THAT SUIT?!?! 🥵🥵🥵🥵 SIR MY OVARIES WERE NOT READY FOR THIS, NO WONDER MY BIRTH CONTROL BE FAILING
Yeah he don’t need that serum and I’m so glad he got the actual suit from the comics. Can’t wait to see him on the big screen🤩

Marvel Fans React to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Finale
https://ift.tt/eA8V8J
This article contains spoilers for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier finale.
We made it. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier finally finished its run on Disney+ this week, and no one must have been happier about it than the cast and crew of the ambitious Marvel series, who had to fight tooth and nail to get it wrapped up during a global pandemic.
There weren’t too many surprises in the finale, but the show delivered pretty much everything it promised. Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) took up the Captain America mantle and tried to resolve the Flag-Smashers situation once and for all, but ended up giving a passionate speech about the nature of terrorism and the grey areas that many politicians would rather pretend didn’t exist instead.
Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) continued to make amends for his actions as the deadly Winter Soldier and found some peace in his resolve, while Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) was revealed as the decidedly deceptive Power Broker, surprising precisely no one. Not even a belated pardon from the US government was about to get her back on side, it turned out.
Baron Zemo of course had one final chess move to play from the relative comfort of his cell on The Raft, neutralising the rest of the Flag-Smasher super soldiers in a bomb blast carried out by his devoted butler. The gang’s leader Karli also lost her life to the cause, which she’d seemed dead set on throughout the episode, even when Sam was refusing to play the game.
In an incredibly emotional scene, Sam made sure that Isaiah Bradley’s sacrifices would be public knowledge and never again forgotten. Will we see Isaiah’s nephew Eli become Young Avengers member Patriot in the MCU at a later date? Possibly!
The matter of John Walker’s future was left deliberately muddy, but the ex-marine made some progress in fighting the emotional effects of the super soldier serum, eventually becoming his current Marvel Comics counterpart, US Agent, in a rushed scene towards the end of the episode. Julia Louis-Dreysfus’ Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine was there to make sure Walker’s new suit fit just right, but we didn’t get any further information about what the Contessa is planning, only a promise that things are about to get “weird”.
Much like WandaVision, there were no big Marvel Cinematic Universe cameos during the finale – Chris Evans making an appearance as Old Cap just wasn’t in the cards – and a post-credits scene simply cemented Sharon Carter’s future as the elusive Power Broker. The US government has accidentally acquired a very connected mole out to steal new weapons and tech in Agent Carter, and this story will surely play a part in Marvel’s upcoming Armor Wars and Ironheart series. Peggy must be rolling in her grave.
In the end, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier became Captain America and the Winter Soldier. But whether we’ll get a chance to see the duo have any further adventures together on Disney+ is anyone’s guess at the time of writing.
Here’s how Marvel fans reacted to the finale:
