Hawkeye Season 1 Episode 5 Speculation

I. What is really Jack’s deal?

Clint recovers the sword from Bishop residence and Laura tells him Sloan Holdings is a shell corp funding the Tracksuit Mafia with Jack as its CEO. Kate’s suspicions about her would-be stepdad were right after all. However, Jack’s exact degree of involvement isn’t revealed. What is his interest in the Bishop family? Let’s get wild here. Could Eleanor actually be the one pulling the ropes behind the scenes?

II. Partners, am I right?

Amid the festive cheer, Clint is clearly hiding a lot of lingering regret and guilt about Natasha and being Ronin right after the blip. Kate tries to console him but he tells her that his past is still tied to him (and his family) and that he can’t go home till he fixes it. The bond between the two will only grow stronger from here on, now that Kate knows of and sympathises with Clint’s biggest secret.

Later that day, Kate goes to Clint’s apartment with ‘pizza and holiday cheer’ as she feels for him for not being able to be with his family during the holidays. Clint gets emotional talking about Natasha and tells Kate so much of what he does is just managing loss. Kate realises that Clint is Ronin. The next morning, he tells Kate to track down the trick arrows from the LARPers and that he’s going to go talk to Kazi.

He finds Kazi’s car in a parking lot and tells him that Maya’s obsession with Ronin is a pointless obsession that’s going to get all of them hurt. He tells Kazi to tell Maya to back off and that he’s the only one who can convince her to do so.

They’re able to trace the watch to a location. Clint keeps watch and Kate breaks into the apartment, which turns out to be Maya’s. Kate and Maya get into a fight. Meanwhile, Clint is attacked by someone on the rooftop that is later revealed to be Yelena. In an effort to protect Kate, he tells her that they’re no longer partners and he’s going to do this alone from here on out.
