So, we have a Black Widow in our midst.


Disney Plus series Hawkeye continued with an action-packed fourth episode titled Partners, Am I Right?.

Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) and Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) attempted to track down the watch stolen by the Tracksuit Mafia which leads them to Echo/Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox).

Fans will be well aware that Maya has a grudge against Ronin as he was the person who killed her father, William, the former leader of the Tracksuit Mafia.

However, it appears Maya has an even more important family connection in the form of her “uncle” who fans certainly have a theory about.

Finally, this week finally saw the long-anticipated appearance of Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh).

Also appearing in the new series are Fra Free as Kazimierz “Kazi” Kazimierczak, Aleks Paunovic as Ivan, Piotr Adamczyk as Tomas, Brian d’Arcy James as Derek Bishop, and Linda Cardellini as Clint’s beloved wife, Laura Barton.

Oh, and of course, Lucky the Pizza Dog.

So, when can fans expect episode 5 of the new series?

The conclusion of Hawkeye episode 5, titled Partners, Am I Right? concluded with some big reveals and an emotional moment.

Clint Barton and Kate Bishop head to an apartment building to find the watch stolen by the Tracksuit Mafia.

At the apartment, Clint realises he is in Maya Lopez’s apartment and she is keeping tabs on the Barton family.

As they investigate the apartment, the pair are ambushed on two fronts.

As Maya herself attacks Kate with full force, Clint comes under attack from a mysterious black-clad masked assailant.

Kate manages to injure Maya, forcing the Tracksuit Mafia boss to retreat.

Meanwhile, Clint finally manages to unmask his assailant and it is revealed to be Yelena Belova, played by Florence Pugh.

We knew that Yelena would be appearing in the series and she wants revenge for the death of Natasha Romanoff in Avengers: Endgame.

In the Black Widow post-credits scene, there was given information on Barton by her new boss Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) who credited Barton with being responsible for Natasha’s death.

Why would the Contessa want Yelena to go after Clint?

Finally, Clint appeared to cut off his partnership with Kate for good at the end of this episode but somewhere we doubt their relationship ends here!

We still need to find out who Eleanor Bishop (Vera Farmiga) was calling. Could it be the Kingpin?
