Last Updated on December 15, 2021 by Joydeep Ghosh

Hawkeye Episode 5 was undoubtedly the best one so far. We finally got to See Yelena and Kate meeting each other. Plus, we finally get to see Kingpin making his first appearance in the Hawkeye series. Plus, what can we expect from Hawkeye Episode 6? Is Jack indeed innocent, and how are Elanor and Kingpin related.

Well, if you have missed out on today’s episode and need some recapitulation of the events of episode 5, well, do not worry. In this article, we will discuss the complete ending of Hawkeye Episode 5.

Hawkeye Episode 5 Recap: What Happened to Yelena? Was she among those who got affected due to Thanos’s Snap?

Episode 5 kicked off fantastically; we first see Yelena going back to the home of a former comrade as they tried to release the assassin from the brainwashing with the help of the antidote.

But we found out that this Widow was never really brainwashed and lived a happy life by doing what most Black Widows are trained to do: killing for money.

This Widow asked Yelena how her sister was doing; in reply, she said that her sister was doing fine she hoped to meet her soon after she freed all the Widows from the brainwash with the help of her antidote.

This is when Yelena excused herself to go to the bathroom and glanced at herself in the mirror. Then we saw reverse dust as we witnessed in WandaVision, then Yelena came back again watched her dust away as we saw after Thanos’s Blip.

As it turns out now, she was among the 1 trillion casualties who got affected due to Thanos’s snap (this we were not aware of till now).

The time limit between the two snap, Thanos’s and Tony, was exactly five years. And here we saw that after Thanos’s snap, Yelena was gone, and five years later, Tony again brought every back; maybe Yelena also came back that time. Now unaware of what just happened, she is worried that she lost five years of her life.

Once Yelena came back, she noticed that the whole atmosphere around her had changed, and although she is in the exact location, the entire place has been renovated.

What Did Kate and Yelena discuss?

The Hawkeye Episode 5 was fantastic in many ways; first, we saw that Yelena was among those people who got affected due to Thanos’s snap and then we saw Kate finally opening up to her mother Elanor and revealing about the shady crimes Jack was involved in.

Kate also suggested that Jack was connected with the murder of Armand and Elenor then promised Kate that she would look into the issue, and later on, we see Jack being arrested.

But Jack here still insists that he is being framed and he is innocent.

Later on, when Kate goes back to her apartment, she notices that Yelena now managed to pop into her flat, and they had a chat about Clint.

Yelena opens up to Kate that Black Widow was her sister and she died because of Clint, but Kate says otherwise that Clint is not responsible for her death; Clint could never do such a thing. Kate also said to Yelena that Black Widow was Clint’s best friend.

Hawkeye Episode 5 Ending Explained: Who was responsible for Echo’s father’s Death? 

In Hawkeye Episode 5, we see Clint again putting up his Ronin suit and meeting with Echo, which might help her get some helpful information that might stop her feud with Ronin and maybe after that Echo will leave Clint’s family at peace.

They both had a fight during their confrontation, but here Clint managed to defeat Echo and revealed that Echo’s boss ordered her father to be murdered, which Echo first didn’t believe, but the information fits into the picture. But who was Echo’s boss is yet to be revealed in the series. That we will get to know in the finale most probably. 

After their discussion, Clint managed to escape from the spot with Kate’s help, then they went to Grill’s apartment, where they were just chilling and having a laugh.

Then Kate receives a text from Yelena, and she reveals that the person who hired her to take out Clint was no one but Kate’s mother, Elanor.

This came as a shock to Kate, and then Yelena shared the picture of her mother with Kingpin.

Kate showed that picture to Hawkeye, and Hawkeye stated that was the person that he was most afraid of that was Kingpin, aka Wilson Fisk from the Daredevil series.

Know About Hawkeye Episode 4 Recap

Is Kingpin the main villain of Hawkeye? 

Yes, from the ending of Hawkeye Episode 5 it seems Kingpin is the main villain of the Hawkeye series. 

In the ending, even we noticed that Clint acknowledged the fact that he knows Kingpin and he was afraid of his involvement. So it seems that Clint and Kingpin both know each other, and maybe he worked with Kingpin previously.

The Hawkeye Episode 6 will surely tie up all the loose ends, and finally, we will know how Elanor and Kingpin are related. Is she behind the murder of Armand? and maybe Jack was indeed framed, and he is innocent.

Plus, in the Black Widow Ending, we saw Yelena being recruited by Val (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), and she was the one who told us that Clint was responsible for her sister’s death.

Then why now, suddenly Yelena is saying Kate’s mother, Elanor, recruits her? Is there a tale in the twist? Well, we will get all our answers in Hawkeye Episode 6.

Hawkeye Episode 6: What to Expect?

Hawkeye Episode 6 will definitely showcase Kate and Clint teaming up again. They might go undercover in the finale to find out how Kingpin and Elanor (Kate’s mother are related).

The finale might also showcase Clint attacking Kazi. As per the ending of Hawkeye Episode 5, it is evident that Jack is innocent and is being framed.

Plus, the mysterious Watch that Hawkeye talks about in the show frequently the secret behind the Watch needs to explain.

Also, in Black Widow Ending, we saw Yelena being recruited by Val (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), and Val told her that Clint was responsible for her sister’s death. Then why now, suddenly Yelena says Kate’s mother, Elanor, recruited her to kill Clint? Is there a tale in the twist? Well, we will get all our answers in Hawkeye Episode 6.

Will we see Kate and Clint teaming for one final time in Hawkeye Episode 6?
