CHECK : The Hawk and the Winter Soldier – Episode 3 Power Broker

Wow. Now she’s pretty awful.

TV magazines

Officially, Falcon and the Winter Soldier is halfway through, and the third episode of Power Broker makes one thing very clear: The people behind this show don’t care. It’s lazy, poorly constructed, goes against the story of the MCU, does potentially cool things without purpose (which really dries up the cool stuff), and lets the two main characters get outplayed by the new recruit. All this on top of the lifeless action and flat humor.

Sam and Bucky seek help from the Avengers’ archenemy, Helmut Zemo, but he is limited in what he can do in a German prison. John Walker and Battlestar flex their muscles in pursuit of the flag wavers, but push the limits of a legendary hero.

John Walker has now become a powerful figure, and Power Broker begins by storming into a warehouse he’s technically not allowed to enter, and assembling a group of technicians he thinks will help the Flag Smashers. What he discovers is a total disregard for the role he has taken on. None of the people he and his team have brought together seem particularly intimidating or respectful to him. If the leader is not playing the game, he asks: Do you know who I am? – which sounds more like desperation than admiration. I love this moment, but since I’m sure the series won’t end, my enjoyment is a bit compromised. Here’s what I think of heroes of the past in general: They are not the hero they claim to be, they just dress up. The man in the warehouse doesn’t recognize John Walker as Captain America, nor should he. It’s an effective way to make that claim, but by the end of the series, when Sam takes over the role with much fanfare, it’s belied.


At least Walker manages to acknowledge his unenviable position when he admits that Sam and Bucky have the better arm, and that’s where the power broker from the last Man with the Stars is taken over. After suggesting he talk to Zemo, Bucky visits the man who tore the Avengers apart in prison, leaving Sam behind in case Zemo reacts negatively to the Avengers’ presence. What follows is a tangle of logically incomprehensible procedures. The meeting between Bucky and Zemo lasts about thirty seconds, during which Zemo says he’d like to help, but that he’s behind figurative bars (in reality, it’s bulletproof glass). So Bucky helps him escape… more or less. He first asks Zemo what book he is reading, and Zemo replies: Machiavelli. Then, after cutting off Bucky, who is arguing with Sam about his escape, Zemo opens his book and finds a key card to bypass the prison. How did Bucky get the hidden key card in the book that Zemo already had? Is it another book? Looks like the same cover. This may be the German version of the classic Barnes and Noble series, and they all look the same. But even if it is another book, how can Bucky smuggle something in? He doesn’t officially work for a government, and he has no relationship beyond the fact that Sam hates him and isn’t part of the escape plan. But that’s not all, Bucky also manages to deliver a message to another prisoner causing a riot so Zemo can escape. There’s no attention to detail, and as it stands, it looks like we’re going to have to find this clever.

Zemo then appears in the garage where Bucky and Sam are arguing about their escape, a garage that Sam entered willingly but didn’t think to ask what it meant until Zemo arrived. The garage belongs to Zemo himself, as does the private jet they later fly in, as it turns out Zemo was fabulously wealthy and was also a baron all along, for plot and comic purposes. Remember how Zemo was a soldier in Sokovian’s army, and when his family was killed during the Battle of Ultron, he went underground, tracked down Hydra, used homemade explosives and inferior weapons, and tried to kill himself after his plan was carried out? None of this makes sense anymore, because Helmut Zemo is now Baron Zemo, a virtuous aristocrat who knows the underworld well and whose fortune was not confiscated after he was exposed as a terrorist who murdered the head of state and many other innocent people. He also has a purple mask because that’s what he wears in the comics. Applause. But seriously, it pisses me off because the transformation of the lowly, desperate, suicidal Helmut Zemo into Baron Zemo could have been a great story, but this series made it an easter egg for comic book fans by skipping character development to make a poorly planned miniseries.

A comic book reference that works better is Madripoor, the crime-ridden Asian country known as one of Wolverine’s hunting grounds. (I wonder if that means Disney acquired the rights to Madripoor when it bought 21st Century Fox). Zemo brings Bucky and Sam there because it’s a base of operations for a certain Power Broker, who can lead them to a super-soldier serum. Their escapades on Madripoor, like almost everything else in the series, aren’t as fun or entertaining as they should be – a criminal ending up dead leads them to another criminal ending up dead, and that leads to the credits – but they also reinforce the fact that Sam and Bucky are not good hosts. Daniel Bruhl shines across the board, and he’s a much more magnetic character, even if the character is so inconsistent in his Civil War iteration. Sharon Carter, another Captain America supporting actress who has to share the stage without him, isn’t particularly interesting either. Sharon is now on the run after helping Cap, and she is disillusioned with honor and patriotism and instead does every dirty deed to survive. It doesn’t work; Emily VanCamp can’t play the bad girl, and Sharon is more of a whiner with a chip on her shoulder than a villainous cop. (Bucky’s sentence about them is perfect, but not in the way they meant it).

By the end, Power Broker feels weightless, despite the progression of the plot. Sam and Bucky are closer to pasture, but it’s hard to care. There are a few action scenes, but they are not exciting or gripping. Sharon is fighting a couple of power-hungry characters, but since we don’t know who he is and aren’t really interested in her, it’s just a waste of time. Zemo puts on a purple mask, fires a shot and then takes it off, which was supposed to look epic but was too stupid to have any effect, since he was clearly wearing the mask for fanservice and nothing more. It’s the same thing I said about the mask, the title, and the wealth: why not give him a real reason to wear a comic book costume so it’s important to the story and the character? The result: Sharon can’t stay upright, Dora warrior Milaje Ayo wants Zemo’s head, the flag breakers are now assassins, Sam wants to destroy Cap’s shield – and so quickly they fall to the ground. And it’s the perfect amount of power broker; it throws a bunch of links and information at you in hopes of distracting you from how rushed, meaningless and empty it is.

Power Broker is an empty episode of an increasingly frustrating series. The plot points are not logical or explainable, the characters are very inconsistent, the action is bland, and the barrage of references to comic books and MCU movies is more distracting than it should be fun.
