Episode 4 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is now available on Disney+, which means the second MCU series on Disney’s streaming platform only has two episodes to go. Some viewers won’t have had the chance to watch “The Whole World is Watching” yet, but we’ve already had some information about next week’s episode thanks to another leak on Reddit.
As with previous leaks, the update comes from Reddit user Plenty_Echidna_545 on the r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers subreddit. The same user has correctly revealed the runtime of each episode of both WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Last week’s leak revealed that episode 4 would be 54 minutes in length (including credits) and would see a larger role for John Walker and Lemar Hoskins. Both bits of information turned out to be true.
This week, Plenty_Echidna_545’s post has revealed that episode 5 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will have a runtime of 61 minutes. This will make it the first Marvel Studios episode on Disney+ to clock in at over one hour. The user also indicated that the episode will see Sam and Bucky return to Louisiana. As with previous leaks, the claim was verified by a moderator of the subreddit.
A return to Louisiana almost certainly points to a larger role for Sam’s sister, Sarah Wilson. Her appearance in recent episodes has been limited to phone conversations, however, the ending to episode 4 may mean that Karli Morgenthau is planning to follow up on her threats to Sarah and her two children.
Episode 5 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be available to stream next Friday, April 16th.
