When Bucky Reveals He’s “Semi-Stable” To Steve Before The Battle Against Thanos – Avengers: Infinity War
As I mentioned earlier, Bucky was brainwashed for a good portion of his life and had specific words that would trigger his Winter Soldier persona, words that if used in the wrong way, could cause a lot of harm. At the end of Captain America: Civil War, T’Challa offers his home to Bucky to try and cure his mind.
We even see Bucky trying to live normally at the end of Black Panther, and once the team reunites in Wakanda to fight against Thanos’ army, he reveals to Steve that he is “semi-stable,” meaning that at least something has been working and he doesn’t feel like a threat anymore.
However, that is something to be concerned about. “Semi-stable” makes me wonder if someone can still trigger him somehow. Maybe that’s where Zemo comes in again in the new show? Only time will tell if Bucky has truly healed from his past wounds yet or not.
