Finally got round to it, and I really enjoyed it. I like how it feels a bit grounded and that is exploring consequences a bit more. The opening was standard Marvel fun but I enjoyed the Bucky stuff the most I think.

The stuff with Bucky working through his list and trying to deal with what he had been made to do for years was well done, I hope they keep going with that thread. And yeah, was nice to see Batroc again!
If you enjoyed Bucky's subplot, boy do I have a show for you!
The guy who was Bucky's target in that flashback looked awfully like brainwashing guy from Agent Carter. In that show he was arrested and placed in a cell with Zola, implying it was him who invented the technique that ended up brainwashing the Winter Soldier. Weirdly he doesn't appear to be in the list of credits at the end of this episode so I don't know if it was the same actor or character.

Yeah I didn't think superhero shows were difficult to understand but there you go. He's been intentionally given a costume which just doesn't look right to emphasize he's not Captain America and shouldn't be Captain America. This will naturally contrast greatly with the big reveal of Sam's new Captain America costume whenever that happens later in the season. I'm going to predict final scene of the penultimate episode.
