The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Episode 3 ended with an amazing reveal. Although Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson, and Baron Zemo managed to make it to Latvia, Bucky also realized that they were being followed by Black Panther's bodyguards. But what do the Dora Milaje want with Zemo in the first place?

In the final moments of Power Broker, Bucky is confronted by Ayo, one of the Dora Milaje who is sworn to protect Black Panther. She then declares that she has come for Zemo.


It's an interesting revelation confirming that the Wakandans are still keeping track of Zemo several years after the death of T'Chaka. This could mean that they still see the villain as a potential threat to them.

Another thing to consider is that the Dora Milaje are sworn to protect the current Black Panther. However, there has been no indication that Zemo is going after T'Challa and is simply trying to help Sam and Bucky. On the other hand, it's best to remember that Zemo is a bad guy and the Wakandans might know something that we don't.

So is it possible that Zemo is planning something bigger now that he is out of prison? The Dora Milaje appear to think so and hopefully, we'll get to find out why they are so eager to get their hands on Zemo.


The third episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is titled Power Broker and is now available on Disney+. Episode 4 is scheduled to premiere on the streaming service on Friday, April 9.
