If there’s one good thing that came from this week’s episode of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” it’s that the new Captain America is no longer the new Captain America. And let’s be honest, the only person who’s mad about that is probably John Walker.

After killing a foreign national in broad daylight last week, John Walker has officially been stripped of his shield, stripped of his title and, clearly, stripped of his sanity. To his credit, Wyatt Russell is playing John Walker masterfully and achieving exactly what he set out to do.

“He definitely doesn’t make life easier for anybody,” Russell previously told TheWrap of his character. “You’ll definitely begin to see and understand, hopefully, more of why John is the way he is and what drives him to do the things that he does.” And over the course of the last two episodes, we’ve seen exactly that. But the thing is, John Walker appears to be driven almost entirely by ego. And, after a full-blown meltdown this week, it begs the question: Are we actually expected to sympathize with this man?
