Hello everyone, Matthew Hemenway is here. In this video, I will be reviewing and analyzing Hawkeye Season 1 Episode 4 currently on Disney+. I will go over several topics as well as point out several Easter eggs that I saw in this episode.
As we all know from the last episode ended, Jack had the Ronin retractable sword pointed toward Clint’s throat. Kate rushes down and yells at Jack not to kill Clint. We see Eleanor Bishop coming out and she says, what is an avenger doing in my dining room. Jack says to Clint, you are that archer guy. Kate points out like in the 2nd and 3rd episode as well as I pointed out in my last 2 reviews, Clint’s problem is branding. Clint and Kate must explain to Eleanor and Jack that they are working on an important investigation. There is a piece of comedy here where Kate says they are partners, and Clint says they are not. Eleanor is perplexed to why an avenger like Clint Barton would need help from her daughter Kate Bishop. As we all know Eleanor claims Kate is not an avenger or a superhero. Eleanor does not want her daughter to get hurt or end up like her first husband Derek Bishop did during the attack in the first Avengers movie or as she said to Clint like Natasha AKA Black Widow did.
Clint later goes to Kate’s aunt’s apartment and calls his wife Laura. He and his wife are concerned about the watch being taken from the black-market auction. He knows it would not be good as it could reveal an identity. I caught the fact that his wife suddenly spoke in another language which is she may be the one needing to protect her identity. That is a question we would have to get answered later.
Kate gets back to the apartment and Clint tells her that Jack is the CEO of Sloan Ltd and runs this shell company that launders money for the Track Suit Mafia which means there is a connection between Jack and the Track Suit Mafia. I knew that I was right about Jack being slimy since my first review and I nailed it. Even if I was not sure what the reason was completely, it is starting to make sense to me. We still are not sure if Jack killed Ahman yet, but if I were a betting man, I would say yes to that possibility. Kate brought movies such as The Santa Clause which is owned by Disney and is currently on Disney+. They had It is a wonderful life playing on the TV set which is in black and white.
Kate made the connection that when Clint was talking about who he was supposed to kill was Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow. We should not be surprised that Kate figured out that Clint was Ronin as Kate is a very smart and intuitive person. Clint told Kate; he did what he was trained to do. He was a weapon, and he was nothing more than that. He told her he knows that is why he must fix this in the best way that he can. Like I said in my last review, in this episode we see Clint flashing back to the scenes of Avengers Endgame and Natasha told him, will killing these people bring your family back. We see the flashback to where we all know in Avengers Endgame where Natasha drops down and he still wishes now that it were him that made that sacrifice not her when they went on the mission to retrieve the Soul stone.
Kate gets help from the people who are Known as the larpers as side jobs when they are not working as police officers or fire fighters. She asks for help to get his trick arrows back. As we all know before she saw these people, Kate told Clint; why not have a boomerang arrow which means it would come back to you. If you want to know, the boomerang arrow is in the comics. I will reference the book you want to read at the bottom of this video to find it in this book. Kate also asks the people who play as role players to help them with their costumes as well as help them with their costumes as she believes Clint needs a better look than the one, he uses.
Later, we got to Maya AKA Echo’s apartment and found out she had the watch that was stolen from the auction. Kate is the one that gets into the apartment and finds the watch there. I was surprised Maya kept it at her apartment, you would think she would want to keep it somewhere else and have it locked in a safe. As we all know this watch was found at the Avengers compound that went down in Avengers Endgame and later was being sold at a Black-Market auction.
Kate later gets attacked by Maya and Clint gets attacked by someone in a mask. If you have not seen this episode, I will not say that it is revealed in this episode of who it is. What I can say is that she has the skills of a Black Widow assassin. You will have to watch this episode to find out who that is.
I give this episode a 10 out of 10 rating, as I thought that it was well done. I liked the fact that the series moves at a fast pace, and you do not realize how long you have been watching. To be honest, you do not know how long you have been watching until the episode is finished. It is true to the comics, and you feel engaged during the whole episode.
