The episode’s highlight is without a doubt Florence Pugh’s portrayal as Yelena. Her charisma and confidence have grown as her character has matured since her debut film. Her connection with Hailee’s Bishop confirms them as a future power couple to watch. Pugh gives a multi-layered performance. The charm, sarcasm, and witty surface belies a driven and seething soul. Yelena is less insecure than she was in her previous appearance, and she’s on a revenge quest.
Kate and Yelena’s conversation leads to interesting talks on the state of the world and Clint’s part in it. Yelena’s hatred for Clint is on full show here, as is Kate’s unshakeable loyalty to him. Clint, on the other hand, is still wallowing in his guilt. Clint is at a crossroads in his life in this episode, named Ronin. Clint spends a personal moment with himself, reminiscing on Natasha’s efforts that led to him being saved, in one of the most heartbreaking scenes of the series.
Kate, with her incredible talent, takes her own road to heroism. Her progression from Clint’s reliance to the drive to do what she believes is right feels logical. While Clint is having an intense conversation with Maya, surprising developments occur that will undoubtedly alter her character’s fate. Overall, while parts of the writing in this six-episode series feel hurried, you couldn’t do much worse than what Hawkeye has delivered.
Yelena got blipped and brought back, first, she thinks is “I need to find Natasha, can you help me find Natasha? I need to tell her I’m okay”
Overall the Hawkeye episode 5 is awesome. Share your thoughts below for the series. watch the trailer below.
