When does The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 5 release on Disney Plus? The second canonical MCU show to hit the streaming service continues on Friday, April 16. The final two episodes in the potentially first season are coming soon, and there's still plenty for Sam and Bucky to deal with before it ends.
The fallout from that episode 4 ending needs to be addressed, as well as other plot threads including whether the Flag Smashers will succeed in their mission and what's happened to Helmut Zemo. That's on top of a huge cameo we're supposed to get in episode 5, too, so there's still lots for the showrunners to tie up.
