The full reveal of Sam in his new star-spangled suit was (mostly) kept from the marketing, so it was a big deal when he was revealed in the red, white and blue in today’s episode 6. And here are just a few of the reactions to this major moment that are going around on Twitter.

A highlight for a lot of folks was the altered title card at the end of the finale – which read Captain America and the Winter Soldier. 

Some are taking this as a promise that season 2 is happening.

Phase Four has only just begun and it’s already spoiling us.

He’s come a long way.

But is that really where it started? His promotion to Captain America has seen a childhood photo of Mackie dressed as Cap circulate on social media again, which makes his character’s transformation all the more powerful.

Episode 6 found Sam take his new Wakandan-made suit for a test run when the Flag Smashers sieged the Global Repatriation Council summit in New York. The former Falcon was able to prove himself worthy of continuing Steve Rogers’ legacy to the world, giving an impassioned televised speech to the GRC to do the right thing, which successfully got them to rethink their policies.

We don’t know when we’ll see the new Captain America next, but it’s clear that MCU fans can’t wait for it. How about announcing The Falcon and the Winter Soldier season 2, Marvel?
