Hawkeye and Kate’s impressive skills helped them take down all of the Track Suit Mafia guys at once.

Kate now goes off searching for her mother and Hawkeye. On the other hand, Clint and Yenela now start their fight here; Yelena is determined to kill Clint as she thinks he killed Natasha.

But eventually, both patch things up by Clint finally explaining to Yelena how her sister sacrificed herself to save the people of the universe.

Hawkeye Season 1 Ending Explained: What Happens in the Hawkeye Episode 6 Ending? Does Kingpin Die? 

In the finale of Hawkeye, we see Maya now confronting Kingpin and shooting him dead off-screen. But as we didn’t see him as dead, we can’t consider Kingpin dead.

With Daredevil also being an official part of MCU, there is a possibility that he might have intervened with Maya, and maybe after that, he might have taken matters into his own hands.

Plus, those who have watched Daredevil are well aware that Kingpin is not someone who will die with just one bullet shot.

As per the comic storyline, Kingpin will have temporary blindness after Maya shoots him. And we believe it will be the same case will be here as well plus, if you remember Kingpin’s last dialogue in the series, “Sometimes family doesn’t see eye to eye”, which now hints that Kingpin will now be looking for revenge.

Does Clint manage to go back to his family?

In the finale of Hawkeye Season 1, Episode 6, we see Hawkeye, along with Kate, finally returning to his family in time to enjoy Christmas. That means the series does end up on a good note.

After reaching his home, Kate and Clint now burn the Ronin suit, which means the Ronin chapter of his life is closed, and Kate now suggests new names such as Lady Hawk, Hawk Lady, etc. That basically means they will now be working as partners.

What does Lauren’s watch mean in the Hawkeye Series?

Lauren’s watch had a number written on it that is 19. The watch was first found in Maya’s apartment, and it belonged to Hawkeye’s wife Laura that means that Laura used to be Shield agent. As per the comics, the character is known as Mockingbird.

That basically means Hawkeye and his wife both had worked previously with Shield when his wife was Agent 19. Will we see Hawkeye’s wife in action anytime soon? Well, only time will answer that.

What will happen to Maya/Echo now?

Maya/Echo will definitely be back as Marvel Studios has already confirmed that there is an Echo series in progress.

With Alaqua Cox’s impressive performance in the series, we believe she will rock the role of Echo in the Echo series.

The series will most probably show her fighting with Kingpin, and we might expect Daredevil’s intervention here as well.

What’s next for Yelena?

In Hawkeye Season 1, Ending, we have seen Yelena finally accept that Clint and her sister Natasha were the best of friends, and he is not the guy who had killed Nat.

Now, what’s next for Yelena as she is no longer a Black Widow/Assasin who kills for money? After the Black Widow film, she has already saved all the Black Widows from the brainwash.

As per our assumption, Yelena will now be going freelance and might be part of future Marvel super-hero films or series inside roles, and in the next Hawkeye Season, we might see her bond growing with Kate.

Plus Yelena, Kate is supposed to be a part of Young Avenger, so in short, there is much more left for us fans to see Yelena in the next MCU ventures.

Will Hawkeye and Kate Bishop be back for Hawkeye Season 2?

As per Hawkeye Season 1 Ending, neither Kate Bishop nor Clint has been teased to return for a second season as the show didn’t have any post-credit scene.

But if we remember the moments when Clint returned to his family, and he and Kate burned the Ronin suits, we noticed Kate mentioning which names will better suit her Lady Hawk, Hawk Lady etc. that suggests Kate will be a part of the future MCU projects for sure.

Plus, Kate and Yelena have a great bond with each other, so maybe they will come across together in some other series where we will see this bond growing. Plus, in the Young Avenger team, both are expected to be group members.

It is just a matter of time before we see Kate again.

And Clint will continue to be a Hawkeye, and he will be attending to the urgent Avengers matters, which will require his attention; apart from that, in a few cases, he might help Kate with side missions.

So, in short, we will see enough of Kate and Hawkeye in future for sure.
