The final episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier ended with a new beginning for Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and left us with some big questions about the show's villains. Fans were especially excited to see the return of Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) who was last seen as the big bad of Captain America: Civil War. The character's charm and dancing skills made him a fan favorite of the Disney+ series, and everyone can't wait to see what he does next. In last week's episode, the Dora Milaje took him from Bucky and the finale showed him back in prison in The Raft facility. Brühl took to Instagram today to comment on his character's fate.
"Well...Back to prison, time to read, improve my chess and dance moves. Thanks @marvel for letting me catch some fresh air out there. So long FriendZ xxxZ @falconandwintersoldier #teamzemo," Brühl wrote. You can check out his post below:

During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Brühl joked that Marvel fans should join "Team Zemo."
"They should all join Team Zemo. I think it's a good choice," Brühl said with a laugh. "No, but what was established in Civil War already and what I loved about Kevin Feige's reinterpretation of that character was that he is not a cliché, one-dimensional evil guy who just does that creepy stuff for no reason. He does it out of a very human motivation. He has suffered severe loss. So, although I always disagree with Zemo's radical methods, I kind of empathize with him, knowing where he was coming from. And that ambiguity is carried on in the show, as well, so you cannot totally dislike him."
