After a mission, Sam and Joaquin meet in a market in Tunisia. They chat about the Air Force, Stark-level technology, and the new terrorist organization, the Flag Smashers. Joaquin makes sure to keep an eye out online for any suspicious Flag Smasher clues, but Joaquin also admits that he has come across some interesting conspiracy theories about Steve Rogers’ whereabouts.

While Sam denies this, Joaquin is unconvinced, even asking if he ever flies to see him. While the other theories are not discussed, it seems like the moon theory is popular, but Sam insists it’s not where Cap is at, and he seems pretty entertaining with the theory. However, he seems to know something about his friend’s location.

When the conversation comes to an end and Sam begins to leave, Joaquin asks Sam where he is going. After telling Joaquín that he is going to Washington, Joaquín asks what is happening there, to which Sam responds with “things from the moon”, implying that he is dealing with matters related to Captain America.

It’s clear that Falcon is still strongly connected to Captain America through their bond, his past experiences, and his mixed feelings about taking up the mantle. You may also know where Steve really is, but only time will tell where old Cap is hiding.

Directed by Kari Skogland, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier stars Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Wyatt Russell, Noah Mills, Carl Lumbly, and Daniel Brühl. The series is currently airing on Disney +.
