Thoughts on Disney+’s Hawkeye, episode 4

Let’s talk Hawkeye — episode 4!

This week’s offering from yours truly is spoiler-free; you’re welcome.

Catch up on my thoughts on previous episodes here:

To me, this episode felt a little like a fill-in episode

- I still enjoyed the hell out of it, but it was clear we had some plot details to either resolve or set-up, and that’s what this episode was for.

Lucky the pizza dog is still adorable, Clint is still grouchy-but-soft, Kate is still out of her depth but loving it.

Her mother’s fiancee is still an excellent example of an actor enjoying being as unlikeable as possible, while also giving you moments which are like, ‘maybe he’s not so bad…’ before bam! — yes he is.

He’s earning his salary here, is what I’m saying 😅

Returning to the LARPers was a nice touch — especially since it gave Clint another chance to look at them like he’s having an out-of-body experience.

Jeremy Renner’s bamboozled-yet-secretly-loving-it face is getting a serious workout in this series.

And I love casual Black Sapphic police-lady and LARPer, Wendy Conrad. She rocks. And might be a more major character than we know… #JustSaying

Also, some accountability for the moral grey area of ‘collateral damage.’

Clint grappling with the way he ‘dealt with’ previous MCU events, the fact that — to the government, at least — he’s a fancy weapon, and weapons are meant to hurt, not help…
