The Meaning of Hawkeye Episode 2’s Ending and a Possible Kingpin Connection

Hawkeye’s first two episodes are now accessible on Disney(plus), and the cliffhanger from the second episode may hint to a tie to Wilson FiskKingpin. Fans got to see Clint Barton’s initial meeting with Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop, as well as how the seasoned Avenger becomes entangled in Kate’s murder mystery. Following a run-in with the Tracksuit Mafia, Hawkeye agrees to be kidnapped by the gang in order to learn more about their mystery leader. Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), nicknamed Echo, is portrayed as the Tracksuit Mafia’s commander, but the cliffhanger finale of Episode 2, “Hide and Seek,” may hint at a larger tie to Netflix’s Kingpin of Crime.

Kate Bishop stole Hawkeye’s Ronin suit from a black-market auction in Episode 1. After that, we’re told that “the Ronin ravaged the criminal underworld” of New York, which happened during the five-year time jump in Avengers: Endgame, when Clint became a vigilante after his family was killed by Thanos. The Kingpin is in charge of New York’s criminal underworld, according to comic book fans, and Vincent D’Onofrio is speculated to reprise his Daredevil role in Hawkeye. It would make sense for Kingpin to be the one pulling the strings for the Tracksuit Mafia if he made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the Disney(plus) series.

So, why did Maya LopezEcho, the woman in black, appear in Hawkeye’s second episode? A genuine Kingpin would not sully their reputation by attending to minor details such as a misplaced Ronin suit. No, one of their most trusted servants would be dispatched to oversee the task on their behalf. In this case, this devoted servant (Echo) is Wilson Fisk’s adopted daughter… at least in the Marvel Comics Universe.

Of course, Marvel Studios almost never adapts a comic book plot all the way through. Even the Hawkeye streaming series is a loose version of the award-winning comic by Matt Fraction and David Aja. While some details about Echo and Kingpin’s past may be altered along the line, it’s still possible that she’s working for him in Hawkeye. If we’re lucky, Vincent D’Onofrio will make a surprise entrance in the Hawkeye season finale, similar to Jonathan Major’s appearance as a Kang the Conqueror variation in Loki’s season finale earlier this year.
