Warning: if you haven't seen the latest episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, this article contains major spoilers so read at your own risk.


The Falcon and the Winter Soldier continues to heat up each week and its latest episode is actually pretty special for a number of reasons, one of which has something to do with the wild fan theories surrounding the show that have been circulating all over the internet. Even before the series began airing, the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe fandom has already come up with a theory centered on one of the show's main characters and it actually came true in Episode 4.



"The Whole World Is Watching" finally gave Marvel conspiracists a huge win as it marked the first time in the MCU where a fan theory actually happened. Cutting right to the chase, in the said episode, the "new" Captain America John Walker was able to obtain a vial of the super-soldier serum which Karli Morgenthau has been in possession of.

One of the scenes in the episode saw Karli trying to escape Bucky, Sam, and company but Baron Zemo almost puts a stop to it. And while it may have looked like Zemo was actually going to steal the serums from Morgenthau, he did the unthinkable and destroyed the vials but as fate would have it, Walker was able to recover the last remaining vial of the lethal formula.



In the closing moments of Episode 4, it was already evident that Walker already injected himself with the serum and it's safe to say that things are only going to get ugly from there as Captain America is slowly becoming corrupted by the substance, much like all of the super-soldiers that have used the formula.

To be fair, the idea of John Walker injecting himself with the super-soldier serum wasn't exactly too farfetched. If anything, it was just a question of when and how he'll be able to score his fix but still, a lot of fans were able to "predict" it so mad props to you, Marvel detectives!

The latest episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is now streaming on Disney+.
