Hawkeye episode 4 — out now on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar — kicked off the second half of the brand new Marvel Cinematic Universe miniseries by driving into the next gear. There was extra intrigue typically round feminine characters this episode. Hawkeye episode 4 launched the Black Widow character that we have been promised final December — after which arrange on the finish of the Black Widow film earlier this yr. Florence Pugh returned because the wise-cracking tremendous spy Yelena Belova, although she did not get any phrases in on Hawkeye episode 4. The brand new Hawkeye episode additionally teased a probably sophisticated previous for Hawkeye’s spouse Laura Barton (Linda Cardellini) who appears way more serious about sure objects than she must be.
On the similar time, Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox) who acquired a lot consideration in Hawkeye episode 3 was just about non-existent on Hawkeye episode 4. That stated, Hawkeye episode 4 had a bit extra for Kate’s mom Eleanor Bishop (Vera Farmiga) who is probably going hiding one thing. Hawkeye episode 4 additionally confirmed Jack Duquesne’s (Tony Dalton) unhealthy man standing, additional distancing him from his Marvel Comics counterpart. We additionally did not get any extra of the “Uncle” who was teased in Hawkeye episode 3, disappointing followers desperately eager to see the return of Kingpin/ Wilson Fisk — if that’s even going to occur.
Hawkeye episode 4 — titled “Companions, Am I Proper?”, directed by Bert & Bertie, and written by Erin Cancino and Heather Quinn — picks up proper the place we left off in Hawkeye episode 3. The very dramatic ending with Jack Duquesne (Dalton) pointing the Ronin sword at Hawkeye/ Clint Barton’s (Jeremy Renner) face may be very rapidly performed for laughs. Becoming for a Marvel collection that has prioritised goofiness over sincerity from the start. Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) and her mom Eleanor (Farmiga) observe them into the room very quickly — a lot for an empty house, Kate — and that diffuses the stress throughout. Eleanor is aware of Clint is an Avenger, and Jack naturally lowers the sword.
Then at a dinner desk, Jack and Eleanor attempt to determine why Kate is pals with an Avenger. Kate very enthusiastically says they’re engaged on a case collectively as companions. Clint would not like to make use of the chums or companions them — however sure, they’re working collectively, he concedes.
That is just about the dynamic from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier: not pals, not companions, however co-workers. Eleanor is of course anxious and as she walks Clint in direction of the elevator in Hawkeye episode 4, she expresses considerations about Kate’s wellbeing. You’ve got youngsters proper, Eleanor says, bringing within the parent-children dynamic. Clint says whereas he cannot drop the case, he’s going to guard her daughter.
Within the elevator, Clint texts his spouse Laura Barton to lookup “Sloan LTD”, the identify of the corporate that Kate present in Hawkeye episode 3 that was connected to Kazi (Fra Payment). In the meantime, Eleanor calls somebody — Hawkeye episode 4 would not inform us who — expresses extra concern on a voicemail and asks them to name her again.
Out on the New York streets in Hawkeye episode 4, Laura (Cardellini) calls Clint and tells him that Sloan is a entrance for Tracksuit. They have been talking Russian when she referred to as — Laura has additionally found that the Sloan CEO is none different Jack (who would not give Sloan staff a time without work). Clint figures Jack is laundering cash for the Tracksuit Mafia. That is enormous because it confirms Kate’s suspicion about Jack — and confirms Jack’s standing as a nasty man on Hawkeye.
Laura then enquires about Clint’s wellbeing, asks him to care for his physique, and — switches to German so the youngsters will not know what they’re speaking about — wonders if one thing else is lacking from the Avengers compound. You imply just like the Rolex, Clint notes. That is the watch that Kazi and Co have been after in Hawkeye episode 1. Why is Laura citing the Rolex and in addition talking in German? Does Laura have a area agent previous that we do not learn about?
Again on the Bishop house in Hawkeye episode 4, Kate is mendacity on the couch whereas Eleanor talks to Jack about when Kate’s admiration for Clint started. Eleanor continues to be very anxious, and Jack walks aways to make her tea. Kate tries to convey up the Jack matter once more along with her mom, however she needs her to assist with the Bishop firm vacation celebration. Kate shouldn’t be in any respect. As Jack returns, he serenades Eleanor with a dance — which lastly causes Kate to smile at them for the primary time. As Jack destroys one other pithy quote, the Bishops have amusing about how Jack all the time makes use of aphorisms incorrect.
Clint in the meantime is following his spouse’s recommendation and icing himself. To its credit score, Hawkeye is critical about exhibiting us the injury superheroes take, and the way they should relaxation and recuperate. Kate bursts in with vacation cheer (she has Christmas films, pizza and extra). Clint tells her Jack’s shady fact. We launch into an prolonged montage, as Kate notes that they will have a good time and plan on the similar time. They discuss extra about trick arrows — Kate wonders why there are not any boomerang arrows. Clint then exhibits off a trick with a coin after which teaches Kate how one can do it. They’re mainly hanging and bonding — it is a properly crafted Hawkeye episode 4 scene total, I admit.
It will get a bit critical after Kate asks Clint about the perfect shot he ever took. Clint offhandedly says that it was the one he by no means took, however then regrets blurting it out. He hesitates however after prodding from Kate, tells her how he met Natasha. He was despatched to take her out however he might see she wished out. Clint is absolutely emotional, given he misplaced her in Avengers: Endgame. Kate wonders if Clint misplaced his household within the Blip, and after he says sure, she broaches the subject she already appears to have found out in her head. Kate will get Clint to confess he is Ronin in Hawkeye episode 4, which grew to become an increasing number of apparent actually as he stored spending time away from his household to guard Kate.
As Kate heads for mattress, Clint has nightmares about his time as Ronin and shedding Black Widow/ Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) on Vormir, as he nods off in Hawkeye episode 4.
Within the morning, Clint tells Kate that he’s going to see Kazi — and desires her to trace down the trick arrows they misplaced in that Hawkeye episode 3 automotive chase throughout New York. They’re in a NYPD facility, Clint has found, because of a tracker. The LARPers may help, Clint says, they’ve cop members.
Kate goes to LARPers and they comply with assist her if she makes it value their whereas. In the meantime, Clint tries to motive with Kazi in Hawkeye episode 4. It is advisable persuade Maya to cease looking Ronin — it’s going to get her killed. That is your remaining warning, Clint says.
As Clint arrives again on the house, he discovers that Kate has gotten the LARPers closely concerned. She is making an attempt out costumes they’ve designed for LARPing. Kate then guarantees them extra materials for brand spanking new costumes — so long as they design two for the each of them. Clint shouldn’t be happy with how far Kate is taking it in Hawkeye episode 4 — he is only a grumpy dad — and he finds a method to get them out of there after getting a textual content from Laura. The Rolex tracker continues to be lively at a New York location.
The bow-and-arrow duo go away with the trick arrows that the LARPers properly stole for them — and attain the darkened house the place the watch is pinging. Clint offers Kate recommendations on why he selected this spot, however she has different concepts and has already left his aspect. Kate would not even observe Clint’s plan and simply walks in by the entrance door in Hawkeye episode 4. She breaks into the flat, disables some strobe lights with purple goo arrows, earlier than discovering the watch. Seems the individual is holding tabs on Clint, as they’ve particulars of his household on a close-by notepad. By then, Clint has found out what the strobe lights are for — nevertheless it’s too late.
Maya Lopez (Cox), the Tracksuit Mafia chief from Hawkeye episode 3, has arrived again at her house. Clint is confused for just a few seconds although as a result of he’s additionally coping with somebody on the rooftop lookout. Kate assures him that she’s coping with Maya — which to be truthful is not going very properly. In between saving himself, Clint attaches a cable to Maya’s balcony which Kate then makes use of to zipline throughout to the roof in Hawkeye episode 4. There, the duo attempt to tackle the suited opponent, however they pull a gun on Kate. Simply then, Maya ziplines in and crashes into them, launching herself right into a combat she did not really want to.
Seems, the individual in black has some devices of their very own — which is able to ring a bell for Marvel followers. They briefly knock down Maya, and take Kate out of the motion by tying her to a cable and throwing her off the roof. For a quick second in Hawkeye episode 4. Clint goes by the identical feelings that he did with Natasha in Endgame, considering that Kate is gone. However as he reaches the sting, he realises that Kate is hanging from a line. As an alternative of pulling her up although, Clint cuts her down because the Christmas lights break her fall, and tells her to get out of there. However Kate being Kate, she returns to assist him.
Within the ensuing chaos in Hawkeye episode 4, Kate lands an arrow in Maya’s shoulder and earlier than she will be able to hearth one other, Maya takes off. The suited enemy loses their gun to Kate because it tossed down a stairwell, however then outsmarts Clint in fisticuffs. Not earlier than he unmasks her although — the individual within the go well with is Yelena Belova (Pugh), the sister-figure to Natasha who had been duped into taking a contract on Clint within the Black Widow post-credits scene. However with Kate aiming an arrow straight for her head, Yelena takes off.
Kate wonders who that was, to which Clint says that she would not wish to know. Sure I do, if we’ll work collectively, Kate protests. However Clint is in no temper to entertain Kate’s ambition. “Somebody has employed a Black Widow murderer. This has gotten very actual in a short time,” Clint then provides. Kate says she understands the danger that comes with the job, however Clint says he isn’t going to contain her it doesn’t matter what. “Go house Kate,” Clint barks at her. That is clearly stemming from his fears round how he misplaced Nat — and Eleanor’s request earlier in Hawkeye episode 4 to maintain Kate out of it. In spite of everything, Kate is only a child, and Hawkeye naturally feels protecting round her.
I suppose we can be seeing extra of Yelena in Hawkeye episode 5, releasing Wednesday, December 15.
