Hawkeye episode 3 was an absolute hoot, but there was a distinct lack of Black Widow's Yelena Belova this week. The Black Widow post-credits tease said that fans could look forward to Natasha Romanoff's sister meet up with Clint to settle some things. (A villain basically blamed him for the Widow's death in Avengers: Endgame.) However, three episodes in and the spy have been curiously absent. However, some plot threads are already starting to unite the different players in this story. Hawkeye told Echo that Black Widow killed Ronin and Yelena might fall into the crosshairs right there. Whatever happens from here on out, you can bet that it will be kind of messy for everyone involved. Clint Barton wants to get home to his family, Kate Bishop wants to clear her name, and these two lethal ladies are trying to do away with Hawkeye whether they know it or not.
Director Rhys Thomas spoke about the dangling threat of the Black Widow with GamesRadar earlier this year.
"I can't speak to that," he gestured towards the post-credits scene. "But yes, we know their past, and obviously what happened in Endgame. We know in these first two episodes that Clint's dealing with the fallout of that. But in terms of how they meet, I can't – I'll just pretend I don't know. Imagine it's a happy meeting, where they talk over coffee and work things out."
