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

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier just released its third episode and things are getting more explosive both literally and figuratively as Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes try to uncover the mystery behind the Flag-Smashers and the new wave of supersoldier serums which are currently in possession of the mysterious Power Broker, only this time around, they got the help of an unlikely ally.

 


Aside from all the chaos and action Episode 3 brought in, it was also home to a funny sequence featuring a major callback to Captain America: Civil War. In the said film, there's a scene where Bucky and Sam are inside a beetle car while Steve Rogers was having a conversation with Sharon Carter. In the scene, Bucky is asking Sam if he can move his car seat up to which he replies with an emphatic no. 

In the third entry titled "Power Broker", the entire scene is recreated but this time around, the tables have undoubtedly turned as Bucky is now sitting in the passenger seat with Sam placed in an uncomfortable spot. Realizing their reversed roles, Wilson simply says: "You're not gonna move your seat up are you?"

 


It's this great attention to detail and continuity Marvel has been known for years is the reason why we're completely drawn to these projects. Now, some people may not have realized it, but that specific scene actually solidifies the bond between Sam and Bucky and how their friendship has progressed over the years. It all comes full circle too for the both of them because they're once again finding themselves in the same spot they were in Civil War, against the U.S. government.
 

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