Warning: There are spoilers ahead for the fifth episode of Hawkeye!
Marvel really went there this week. But “uncle” is just the beginning of Clint Barton’s problems. The fifth episode of Hawkeye has debuted on Disney+, and we want to know what the Superhero Hype community thinks about it! This post is a place for all of you to leave your own reviews, thoughts, or anything else you want to say about Hawkeye episode 5.
In 2018, Yelena Belova and another Black Widow attack Ana, and expose her to the mind control cure. However, Ana was no longer brainwashed even before they arrived. When Yelena excuses herself to use the bathroom, she is snapped out of existence and reappears five years later. Yelena’s return frightens Ana’s new family, but Ana calms Yelena down. Yelena is also eager to contact her “sister,” Natasha Romanoff, unaware that Black Widow’s sacrifice allowed her to return.
Back in the present, Kate Bishop returns to her mother, Eleanor. She tells her mother that Clint broke off their partnership, but Kate insists that Eleanor look into their findings on her fiancé, Jack Duquesne. Much to Kate’s surprise, this leads to Jack’s arrest. Regardless, he seems remarkably calm about the situation. Soon after, Kate returns to her apartment and finds Yelena waiting for her. Kate is taken aback by Yelena’s insistence that they share dinner together, and she also seems disturbed by Yelena’s description of Clint’s time as Ronin. When she finishes, Yelena warns Kate not to get in her way.

Meanwhile, Clint and Lucky the Pizza Dog crash at Grills’ apartment. The next day, Clint visits an Avengers monument and asks Natasha for forgiveness. Clint also asks his wife, Laura, for her blessing. She gives it to him in the hopes that he can end Maya Lopez’s vendetta against him. After setting up the confrontation, Clint arrives in costume as Ronin and battles Maya. Clint defeats her and unmasks, while threatening Maya to stay away from his family. He also indicates that someone tipped him off the night Maya’s father was killed. Someone inside the organization. When Maya moves to attack him again, Kate saves Clint with a well-timed arrow.
In the car ride to Grills’ place, Kate reveals that Yelena said she was Natasha’s sister and Clint knew her by name before Kate ever said “Yelena.” Elsewhere, Maya suspects that Kazi was the one who sold out her father. He was suspiciously absent the day that Ronin murdered Maya’s father and other members of his crime family. In the city, Yelena tails Eleanor and texts Kate. She says that Eleanor is the one who hired her to kill Clint. Yelana also sends Kate a picture of Eleanor with “the Big Guy,” Maya’s uncle, and the Kingpin of Crime: Wilson Fisk.
