Hawkeye (S1E06) - Finale - “So This Is Christmas” - 12/22/21





I can't wait to see "the big man" show up.

I would guess this is a show that will get another season... even if it was without Clint... but would love for him to stick around. "Kate Bishop: Hawkeye"

Echo will be getting a spinoff.

Really liking the series. They got a lot to wrap up in one episode!

Just finished it. It was alright I suppose. Nothing really mind blowing or crazy. A few good action scenes and fun trick arrow scenes. The season arc wrapped and then Kingpin gets killed off by Echo. And Mama Bishop gets arrested. And Yelena gets some closure. It was good, but I wasn't going crazy.

It did feel like a passing of the torch from Clint to Kate. I suppose they could do a 2nd season with Steinfeld as the solo lead.

There is a mid-credits, but it was just an extended musical sequence of Rogers the musical. I was kind of hoping we would see Valentina again because she was the one who misled Yelena to think Clint killed her sister. But then again, this was a lighter toned show and more in the holiday spirit.

I would rank the live action MCU shows like this:

1. Wandavision: A-
2. Hawkeye: B
3. Loki: B
4. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier: C+

Guess I liked it better than you did. I thought that was a pretty good season ender. Is Kingpin really dead? It's heavily hinted at but you never see the body.

I'd rank it like:

1. Falcon and Winter Soldier
2. Loki
3. Hawkeye
4. Wandavision

Basically completely polar opposite to DJariya.

I enjoyed this series a lot overhaul. It was a nice break to have a grounded story. They really knocked it out of the park by casting Steinfeld.

No way Kingpin is dead. I expect we will see what really happened on Echo.

Cool to get a tease about Laura’s past. I’ll assume she was Mockingbird until they tell us otherwise.

Watched it. Loved it. Will watch it again with my kids.

No way Kingpin is dead. I agree that we’ll see him again on Echo.

But can we talk about the Big Guy taking an arrow in the chest and going a round with Kate?! Holy crap. Good thing for Kate there wasn’t an car door involved.

But seriously, that was a wicked scene with those two. A little too light (compared to his fights with DD) but very clever and D’onofrio is great as ever.

Agent 19…? Cool.

Closure with Yelena (heart wrenching) and Swordsman (vomit inducing) and Lucky (aka “Pizza Dog”) was nice.

Loved that this series hit low-key supporting groups like the Tracksuit Mafia and LARPers.

For me, I’d rate this series with the rest:

1. WandaVision - A
2. Hawkeye - B+
3. Loki - B
4. What If? - C+
5. Falcon and Winter Soldier - D

Whats up next for Marvel and D+? Anybody know? I know we’re getting Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, She-Hulk, and What If? (Season 2) in 2022… but which is next?

Yea... D'Onofrio was as good as ever and that fight was awesome.

I think Ms. Marvel is the next show because that was originally supposed to premiere by now.

He's shot with an arrow, run down by a car, blown up and you think a bullet is going to kill him? Nah.

I also liked the hallway fight with Yelena and Kate.

This series was a lot of fun. Terrific action, snappy dialogue, and of course the LARPers. Loved the chemistry between Stanfield, Renner, and Pugh especially.
Bonus points for Rogers: The Musical!

Wish this turned out better, but a lot of it just didn't work for me.(the slapstick humor, etc) A very uneven show that didn't seem to have much substance, at least to justify four hrs. (same issues with the Falcon series)

I don't think I would. I've been to about 20 different shows on Broadway and this one looks really low budget.

And what in the heck was Antman doing in the Battle for New York?

and ripped a car door off with his hands. It would seem he's somehow been "enhanced" but I don't have an explanation.

I've never been to one as I don't like musicals or plays too much. I think this one would be fun though considering the source material. I've always wanted to go to the Spider-Man one years ago, but never got round going up there to see it.

I'm hoping that because we don't see what happens between Echo and Kingpin.. and that sound was more of an explosion than a gunshot, that maybe we get the MCU version of Bullseye or Elektra (or some other assassin) looking out for Fisk.

I thought it was amazing. We got to see Kingpin in action! Ripping doors off cars, taking arrows! Awesome!

I loved seeing Jack with the swordplay.

They better work Yelena into everything or give her a movie or show. Maybe a team up with Kate. Those scenes were amazing with them bickering and fighting.

I would say this was probably #2 for me. Loki was still the best. This and Wandavision are pretty close. Falcon was a dud.

I loved this episode--so much fun throughout, especially the whole sequence with Kate and Yelena. And then Kate and Clint on the ice rink using all the trick arrows against the track suit mafia. I lol'd at the part with the Pym arrow and the truck. "What happens to them now?!" "I don't know, I'll have to ask Scott." (Owl swoops in and carries off the mini-truck). "Well, there's that."

My ranking of the Disney Marvel shows would be:
1. Hawkeye
2. Wandavision
3. Loki
4. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
5. What If...?

There is absolutely no way Kingpin is dead. Come on, it's a rule of TV shows that if the death is off-screen, it didn't happen.

And you know how owls like to eat small rodents.

This Kingpin was different from the Netflix KP.
There he was just a large man with strength.

MCU kingpin was essentially the same as the comic book version.
A large hulking powerful man.
Stronger then an ordinary man.
Basically solid muscle.
Almost invulnerable.

Clearly he is not dead but probably very injured.
