Partly Load bearing?

Hi, appreciate any views on the framing of this wall. (Pictures attached) Basically, an opening, double plated, with loads on each ends. Couple notes:
+There is nothing (loads) in between the two ends (green line).
+The left side does have beam on top. The beam supports the joists for the bedroom above.

Had done a lot of research online, but nothing can address this well. Trying to see if the double plate (green marked line) can be taken out for a smooth ceiling. Thank you.

What direction do the joists above the opening run? If they are perpendicular to the opening then I would want to look more closely at it.
