A tweet from Teen Wolf director Stephen Ford about the most recent episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has sparked an online debate about the nature of the relationship between Bucky Barnes and the Dora Milaje.

Bucky’s ongoing struggle to regain autonomy over his life will surely be a recurring theme for the character for as long as he’s in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the Wakandans — and the rest of the world, frankly — don’t quite yet trust him, maybe his actions in the final two episodes of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will go a long way in changing that. After all, no one wants to stop the deranged, murderous Captain America more than he does.
