Hawkeye Season Finale!

The Hawkeye Season Finale has finally come, and some characters make their presence known to our heroes! Before I get underway, SPOILERS AHEAD!!! So, with that out of the way, let’s get into it!

We start by getting a flashback of the Kingpin himself, Wilson Fisk, making his official MCU appearance! He has a meeting with Eleanor Bishop, who is discovered to be working under Fisk after her dead husband had an enormous debt to be paid. When she plans to leave Fisk’s organization and details that she has evidence of his involvement as a backup plan. Fisk is furious. And if you’ve seen the Netflix show, Daredevil, then you would know he is not a person you wanna piss off. Flash forward to today, we see Kate and Clint form a plan to stop Eleanor. Clint says that it’s gonna be dangerous and suggests that they build new trick arrows and enlist the LARPers to help with their mission.

At a Gala hosted by Eleanor, Clint and Kate go undercover to blend in, along with the LARPers’ who’re providing crowd control when the time comes. We also see Jack, out of jail brandishing his sword in public. In the building opposite, we see Kazi with a rifle, trained at Eleanor. As Kate confronts her mom, stating that she knows about Eleanor’s dealing with the Kingpin, the shooting starts. Clint and Kate deal with Kazi and the Tracksuits, while the LARPers handle evacuation. Jack also joins the fray with his rapier. As Kate tries to stall Yelena, who drops by, Clint makes short work of Kazi but gets stuck in a Christmas tree! Yelena is clearly too much for Kate to handle, easily dispatching her, but missing her shot at Clint. Kate makes her way down to the ground level outside and frees Clint. From there, we get a cool montage of the two archers using new trick arrows to deal with the Tracksuits. Kate leaves to deal with her mom, Yelena sneak-attacks Clint, demanding answers about her sister Natasha. We also see Maya aka Echo back in the picture, fighting her own cousin Kazi. At first, she tries to reason with him, but Kazi is too afraid to go against t Kingpin, forcing Maya to kill him. After Eleanor tries to escape the madness, Fisk rips off the car door and grabs her. Kate arrives and shoots an arrow into his chest, but he barely feels it! She tries everything, from hand-to-hand to trick arrows. Nothing is fazing him; Fisk even breaks her arrows. Kate, somehow, pulls it out, though. Using the same trick that Clint taught her, she activates all the explosive arrows and finally brings him down, Meanwhile, Yelena is battering Clint, demanding why he let Natasha die. He tries to reason with her, but she won't listen. When Clint uses the sisters’ special whistle, she then stops as she listens to Clint tell her what really happened. Breaking down upon hearing the truth, Yelena relents and lets Clint go. Kate gives her mom up to the police, and Fisk escapes police custody, only to be shot in the head by Maya! (off-screen, of course.) From there, we see Clint take Kate home to his family, making it on time for Christmas! Clint also gives his wife the Rolex that the Tracksuits were looking for, which has the S.H.I.E.L.D logo on the back, confirming that she was an agent! Clint also burns the Ronin suit, putting that part of his life behind. (There’s an after-credits scene, with the Rogers Broadway play, it’s kinda cool, if not underwhelming.)

So, with Hawkeye, that wraps up a whole year of MCU shows! As a show, it wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be. It definitely made me care more about Hawkeye, although I still won’t say that he’s my favorite Avenger. The addition of Kate Bishop was welcome, but the real scene-stealer was Florence Pugh as Yelena! Every time she appeared, things got more interesting. The brightest spot is the inclusion of Wilson Fisk into the MCU! They kinda nerfed his violence, but it’s Disney! They won’t show us having Kingpin decapitating a guy with a car door! But now, it can be put to rest that all the Marvel Netflix shows are indeed canon! (I already thought they were, give us season 3 of Luke Cage!). Here is my official ranking of the Disney MCU shows;

1. Falcon and The Winter Soldier

2. Loki

3. Hawkeye

4. Wanda/Vision

Post your thoughts below, and till next time fellow blerds!
