Yes, it's time to watch Hawkeye episode 6, though the folks at Hawkeye HQ dropped a possibly questionable clue beforehand.
But, yes, this is the Hawkeye finale we've been waiting for. Not only did the previous episode spill the beans on Kingpin's involvement, but it also broke Kate Bishop's world into pieces with the reveal that her mother Eleanor is the one who put a hit out on Hawkeye.
Release time and date: 3 a.m. ET today (Dec. 22)
Cast: Jeremy Renner, Hailee Steinfeld, Vera Farmiga, Florence Pugh
Showrunner: Jonathan Igla
Hawkeye episode 5 set up the big finale that Disney and Marvel have teased in trailers (the latest is below) for a while. A big bash at Rockefeller Plaza, in front of the giant Christmas tree. And it looks like sides have formed.
Clint Barton and Kate Bishop are in need of some allies, and so we're wondering which of the two established tweeners (read: neither purely good or bad) we've met will cross the big boss. Echo is a big possibility, as she's about to get her own show (would Marvel give a villain their own show?!). And Yelena? After her girls' night mac & cheese meal with Kate? That wouldn't surprise us at all.
All that's left is Jack Duquesne freeing himself from the custody that Eleanor called, which seems highly plausible. The question is, will he turn on her? Or was that cop call a ruse all along?
Here's a trailer for the episode, but there's something else to think about, courtesy of the official Hawkeye social media. In a post (opens in new tab) online, the Thor movie is listed as something to watch before the finale. We're really confused as to how or why the Thor movie would matter for the finale. There's a case to be made that they're saying "oh Hawkeye had a small role and made his MCU debut here," but could one of that movie's characters appear here?
