Clint and Kate's partnership is tested as they face the consequences of exposing the conspiracy.
Hawkeye - S01E06 - So This Is Christmas?

Original release date: December 22, 2021

As Eleanor meets with Kingpin to break off their partnership, Barton and Bishop watch a recording of them and learn that Eleanor killed Armand and framed Duquesne. On Christmas Eve, Barton and Bishop attend Eleanor’s holiday party, where Bishop confronts her mother and learns her father owed money to Kingpin, leading to Eleanor working with him. Kazi attempts to assassinate Eleanor on Kingpin’s orders, but targets Barton instead. Barton enlists help from Grills, the LARPers, and Duquesne to evacuate the party before rejoining Bishop to defeat the Tracksuit Mafia. After Lopez kills Kazi, Bishop attempts to look for Eleanor while Barton is confronted by Belova, who demands the truth of Natasha Romanoff’s death. They fight, but he eventually reminds her of his close friendship with Natasha and her sacrifice to save the universe. Belova decides to walk away after sparing him. Kingpin tries to stop Eleanor from escaping, but Bishop arrives and incapacitates him with Barton’s trick arrows. Afterwards, Eleanor is arrested by the police for Armand’s murder. Kingpin escapes but is confronted by Lopez. The next day, Barton returns to his family with Bishop, returns the watch to Laura, and burns the Ronin suit.

Ms. Bishop.

Mister Fisk.

What can I help you with, Eleanor?

We’ve had a good relationship, haven’t we, Wilson?


I’ve never asked questions, I’ve always done what was told.

What I’d expect when there’s a debt, and your husband owed a small fortune.

Which I have repaid tenfold by now.

All the while doing pretty well for yourself.

Like you said, it’s been a good relationship, which is why I’m a little confused where you’re headed with this.

I handled Armand like you asked.

My fiancé is taking the fall for Sloan.

But my daughter, my daughter is home now, and she’s getting too close.

And that’s where I draw the line.

There are no lines in this business.

And that is why I have to leave this business.

Eleanor, don’t be rash.

I want you to know that I have been keeping an insurance policy.


Copies of everything, in a safe place.

In the spirit of the holidays, I’m gonna give you a minute to think about what you’re starting right now.

I don’t need a minute.

In the spirit of the holidays, I’m gonna give you a minute to think about what you’re starting right now.

I don’t need a minute.

BARTON: Who sent this?


Apparently my mom is the one who hired her to kill you.

Oh, wow.

It doesn’t make any sense. My mom doesn’t even, she doesn’t even jaywalk.

And now she’s working with the mob?

(SOFTLY) She killed Armand?

My God, I need to talk to her.

Kate, wait. You gotta calm down, okay?

Let’s talk this out.

(ON MACHINE) Hi, this is Eleanor. I can’t answer the phone right now…

Just take a breath, okay?

But your mom needs our help.

That video, Kate, it’s not good.

The Kingpin will not take this lightly. He is going to react, and he’s gonna do it in a big way.

Clint, this is my mess to clean up.

You should go home, you should be with your family.

You can still make it in time for Christmas.

Kate, you’re my partner.

Your mess is my mess.

I’m not going anywhere until this is finished.


Here she is.

I’ve seen you at the end of some tough matches, but this?

Do you want to tell me what’s been going on?

I always taught you to keep a low profile.

I’m sorry. I got carried away. You know what my father meant to me.

To all of us.

KAZI: I’ve come to my senses. I need to focus on the job.

Stop chasing ghosts.

That’s quite the turnaround.

KAZI: I’ve realized no matter what I do, I can’t bring my father back.

Finding whoever killed him, that won’t change anything.

He would’ve wanted you to move on. He always wanted…

The best for you.

I only wish that he could be here now to see you and all of your accomplishments.

KAZI: If it’s okay with you, I’d like a couple days off, to clear my head.

Yes, that’s reasonable.

Maya… I love you.

The Ronin is running around the city.

An Avenger has taken an outsized interest in our operations, and the Bishop woman, she thinks that she can quit her job, as if she works for Goldman Sachs.

And Maya…


She’s turned on us.


What will we do about it?

The people need to be reminded that the city belongs to me.

Kate, I’m really sorry how this has all turned out for you.


Can’t think about it right now.

We’ve gotta focus on tonight.

(EXHALES) You’re right.

We need a ton of gear.

Like a whole batch of way-too-dangerous trick arrows.

You can make more?

Hey, Kate, have you seen that pepper spray?

Yeah, I’ve got it here.

All right.

What is this one?

Way too dangerous.

Too dangerous.


So, this, uh, this holiday party tonight, is it a fancy thing?

Yeah. Formal.

You know, you don’t have to do this.

It is part of the job.

It’s always inconvenient.

It’s lonely.

You will get hurt.

Heroes have to make some tough decisions.

So, if you’re gonna do this…

I just wanna know you’re ready.

When I was younger, aliens invaded.

And I was alone.

And I was terrified.

But then I saw you, fighting aliens with a stick and a string.

I saw you jump from that building even though you can’t fly, even though you don’t have superpowers.

And I thought, “If he could do that, then I didn’t have to be scared.”

You showed me that being a hero isn’t just for people who can fly or shoot lasers out of their hands, it’s for anyone, who’s brave enough to do what’s right, no matter the cost.


I’m ready.

KAZI: I’m in position.

If the Bishop woman escapes, be ready.

We’re on the route. Tomas has east exits, I have west.


I don’t see my mom yet.

BARTON: Why don’t you tell me what you do see?

What are our assets, what are our threats?

Mmm. Threats? That guy.

That’s Gary. He fired me from one of the only jobs I ever had.


Well, we have those all over the party.

MAN: Chip. So good to see you.

Wow. Jack’s out of jail already. Nothing phases that guy.

So Jack wielding a sword, just out of jail for allegedly murdering somebody with one.

Maybe it’s his way of proving that he really is innocent?

It’s a weird flex, but sure.

Hey, Jack. I thought you were in jail.

I was, until your father bailed me out.

Mom said I was gonna get your wine collection.

(LAUGHS) What? You’re not old enough to appreciate my wine collection.

Well, I will be someday.

The problem is it will have peaked by then.

Not if you go back to jail, it won’t.

Do you remember when you peed in your pants in The Hamptons?

I do. Everybody does.


Take this.

Stay on comms, okay?


I’m gonna take a lap.

ORVILLE: There you go.

Wanna check your coat?

No, thank you.

Okay, then.

Do you see her?

KATE: (ON PHONE) No, I haven’t seen her yet.

I found her.

Kate, hi…

Mom, come with me.

What are you doing?

I’m saving your life.

Your business partner wants you dead.

What are you talking about?


UNCLE: …which is why I’m a little confused where you’re headed with this.

How could you do this?

ELEANOR: I handled Armand like you asked.

All these years.

You don’t understand.

When your father died, I was blindsided.

He owed that monster money.

There you two are! Sorry to interrupt, darling, but I really need to have a word with you…

Jack, not now.

Sweetheart, Kate, don’t worry about it, I have everything under control.

All clear, boss.

KAZI: (SARCASTICALLY) Surprise, surprise.

Get down.

What the…

You okay?


Get these people out of here.



BARTON: Away from the window, away from the window!


Stay down! Stay down.

This way. Missy, a little help. Come on.

Barton’s here, and the girl.

Tell the boss Christmas came early.

What the hell was that?

BARTON: Shots fired. We’re workin’ on gettin’ these people outta here.

KATE: Mom and Jack, stay here.

Kate, do not go out there, it’s too dangerous.

You’re the reason it’s dangerous out there, Mom.

Just stay put and stay out of this.

You know…

I feel like I’m missing something here.


Okay, Jack, this is it.

It’s your time.

Come on, come on.

Oh, God. Clint, who’s shooting?

I have no idea.



Find Eleanor.


I’m gonna head downstairs, draw the fire away.

Copy that. We’re going position two, guys.

Wendy and Missy.

Kill the lights.


Oh, shit.

So, I know you’re chummy with my mom, I didn’t think you’d make the cut for the Christmas party.

Kate Bishop.

I’m not here to ruin anything.

I’m just going to kill Barton, have some appetizers, and then I’ll go.

I hope you enjoy the bruschetta, ’cause it looks like you already lost him.

He’s in the elevator.

Yeah, what, out of 65 floors, you think you’re just gonna magically guess which one he’s on?


Twelfth floor.

Damn it.

Enjoy the party.

No, no, Kate, stay.




What was that?

I don’t know.


No. No, no, no!

Oh, my God, what is happening?

Did you plan that?


No, no, I…

No, no!

Come on, that is so annoying.



Yep. Please, please proceed at an orderly, orderly manner.

Orderly, or, you know, just keep yelling and shoving each other.

They’re coming to you.

Red One in position.

Tomas will watch exits, I will take team inside.

Excuse me, come on. Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go. Go, go.

Kate’s mom’s not here.

She’s gone.



What are we doin’?

I mean, it’s Christmas Eve. Let’s grab a drink, huh?

Okay. Yeah. Sure.


After I kill Barton.

No. No, that’s not what…

Come on. You don’t need to…


Kate, where are you?

Yep, give me a minute.

Everyone here at 107.6 Lite FM would like to wish you a merry Christmas Eve.

That really hurts!

Yeah. Yeah, well, so did the kick to the ribs.

Oh, yeah. That was a good one.

That was good form. But you did the really cool body throw.

Yeah, thank you. Thank you.


Stop making me like you.

I’m sorry, I can’t help it. That was really fun.



Was that you?

It’s Yelena. Watch out!

It’s supposed to be scary, it’s supposed to be scary. Okay.

What are you doing?

Kate! You okay?


Clint, the Tracksuits are here.

Look! It’s Kate Bishop.

I know it’s not the best moment right now, but I want to thank you, you know.

For your advice, how I should speak to my girlfriend.

Did it work?

It worked, bro, we went to Maroon 5 instead.

That’s so great. So, what’s with the gun?

I’m sorry, but… I wanted to thank you.

I got you now, bro.


Hello, sweetie!

Behind you!

Jack. Jack, I am, I am so sorry my mom got you put in jail. Are you okay?

Never been better.

But I’m afraid I’ve lost track of your mother.

Yeah. You and me, both.

I’m gonna enjoy this.

I told you to stop.

You started all this. And now I have to finish it.

There he is.

You’re right, Kazi.

That was fun.

This is some Christmas.



Where are you?

Right here!

Where’s “here,” Clint?

In the tree.

What tree?

BARTON: The tree!

What’re you doing up there?

I’m just hangin’ out, what do you think?

Guys! Guys, where’s my gear?

I need my gear.


I got it. I got it.

Any eyes on my mom yet?

Not yet.

No? Okay. Look, I need to get Clint out of that tree.

Clear the civilians for me.

What about that guy? He doesn’t seem to…

Take that!

He’s on our side, but we should get him out, too.

All right.

All right. Good luck.


This way. This way. You just go. Go, go. Let’s do… This way.

These people are terrible at following directions.

Hey, guys. I think it’s time.

Are you sure?

Yeah. I mean, we’re trained professionals, but that’s not enough now.

Let’s go.


Let’s go, bro.


Hey, bros.

Kate, where’s our backup?


(CHUCKLING) We’re all gonna die.

You guys ready?


Let’s do it.

Let’s do this.

This way, people! Come on, this way! This way! This way, people.

This way! That way!

Come on!


ARMAND VII: Put me down! This instant!

I’m trying to save your life, you brat!

Do you know who I am?

Clint, I need you to hang on tight.

Yeah, you think?

Wait, wait. What do you mean?

I’m gonna get you out of that tree.

No, no, don’t do anything. Kate?

I’m gonna get out myself.

You want me to say, “On my signal”?

Kate, please don’t do anything.

All right, I won’t say it then.

Repeat after me, “I’m not gonna do anything incredibly stupid.”

Kate, what just happened?

Kate, do not!




We’re too exposed. Let’s go.

My gun!

That should hold them off for a bit.

Oh, my God, you wore it!

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Oh, my God, it looks so good, I told you.


Listen to me. We need to get off this ice, okay?

The only way off this ice is up those stairs.

Great. There’s only about a thousand of them and two of us.

Here, take these.

No way. Is it time?

It’s time.

All right, Kate.

Let’s give ’em hell.




MAN 1: Get them! MAN 2: Run them over!


Oh, my God!

What happened?

What happens to them now?

I don’t know.

I’ll have to ask Scott about that one.



Well, there’s that.

Let’s go.

GRILLS: Kate, your mom just came out the side door.


I gotta go find her.

You okay?



Just go.

Nice shot!

Yeah, no shit!

KAZI: You know what I have to do.


YELENA: Before I kill you, I need to ask you one question.

It’s nice to finally meet you, Yelena.

I need to know what happened.

Look, Yelena, if I told you what really happened, you’d never believe me.

But what you need to know is your sister sacrificed herself, and she saved the world.

I’m sorry.

You’re lying.


You’re pathetic.

You’re so pathetic.


Don’t you understand?

This is my life, Maya.

My life!

It was never supposed to be yours!

Don’t make me do this, Maya.

We have to find Kate. I think she’s… (GASPS)


Don’t leave, Eleanor.

Come here. Let’s talk.

KATE: Get away from my mom!

What are you gonna do with that?



(PANTING) I’m not like you.


It’s too late.

He won’t let that happen.

Leave, Maya. He’s coming for you.

Where you goin’, big guy?

You’re in over your head!

Nobody killed her.

She made a choice.

Stop lying!

You’re not listening to me.

She sacrificed herself, understand?

I couldn’t stop her.


Mind your own business!

Why would she sacrifice herself for you?

Why do you deserve it?

I don’t.

So she died because you let her.

I fought for it.

But she was better than me.

You should’ve fought harder.


You’re really starting to annoy me.






Are you okay?

I’m so sorry.

I’m so sorry, baby.

We’re gonna put at this behind us. You’ll see.

Okay? It will all go back to normal.

It’s never been normal, Mom.

I think part of me has always known that.

Honey, this was just an unfortunate arrangement.

And it’s over.

Killing Armand?

Hiring an assassin to kill Clint?

Framing your own fiancé?

That’s an unfortunate arrangement?

Yes, sweetie.

That’s how the world works.

I’ve protected you from it.

You may not have known what was going on, but I did it for you.

I know what it’s like to have nothing. And you can’t handle it.

How do you know what I can handle?

Because I know you.


And I know that you think that you can live life without consequences, just like your father.

But someone has to clean things up. Someone has to take responsibility.

You’re right.

Mrs. Bishop.

DETECTIVE CAUDLE: You’re under arrest for the murder of Armand Duquesne The Third.

Turn around, please.


Is this what heroes do?

Arrest their mothers on Christmas?

I’m sorry.

I love you, Mom.

Let’s go.




How do you know that?

Your secret whistle with Nat.

She talked about you all the time, Yelena.

She did?

What did she say?

She told me about how you got separated as kids.

She was flying that plane.

I asked her if she was scared.

All she could think about is that you were safe.

That never changed, Yelena.

She loved you.

And always wanted you safe.


You got so much time with her.

Yes, I did.

It shouldn’t have gone this way.

If I was there, I could have stopped it. I could have…

I could have changed it.

Nothing was gonna stop her, Yelena.

You know Natasha.


She made her choice.

We’re gonna have to find a way to live with that.

I loved her so much.

Me too.


I’m sorry.

OFFICER: He’s not here. He’s gone.



What a surprise.


You and I…

We’re family.


Sometimes family doesn’t see eye to eye…


Look. We didn’t do any of that.

We just wanna make sure you arrest the right people.

Yeah, we’re the good guys.

Yeah. We are with Hawkeye.

We’re essentially Avengers.


You know,

I saw you with your sword earlier.

Pretty handy with that thing.

Have you ever heard of LARPing?


Is that some sort of leisure activity?

Well, I’m in this guild and…


Think I got some blood on my tie.

You know, I gotta be really honest with you, Kate.

It doesn’t happen too often, but… every once in a while, you come across somebody that just makes you better… in every way.

And that Missy, boy, she just… outdid herself with the suit, right?

And the elasticity in this fabric…

Okay, you can stop.

I know tonight was a lot.

You took on Kingpin all by yourself.

Not many people walk away from somethin’ like that.

And I’m so proud of you.

Thank you.


You know what? We gotta walk that dog.

KATE: Yeah, we do.

You coming?

KATE: Yeah. Come on, Lucky.


Hey, are you sure this is okay?

I’m telling you, they’re very excited to meet you.


Hey, there he is!

Hey, buddy, Merry Christmas.

LILA: You made it.

You kept your promise.

Here, take something.

NATHANIEL: What’s your name?

Thank you. Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas.

This is Kate. Come on in. Let’s go.

It’s cold.

You made it.

BARTON: I made it.


I missed you.

I missed you too.

Ah! The dog is so cute. What’s his name?

KATE: That’s Lucky.

Right, yeah.

Brought home a couple strays.


This is Kate.

Welcome, Kate. So good to have you.

No way! I’ve always wanted one of these!

You’re never gonna guess what was found in a black-market auction in New York City.

Thank you.

I want you to take better care of your stuff.

Well, you’re hardly one to talk.

BARTON: Kate. Hey, will you help me with somethin’ real quick?

Yeah. Sure.

I figured you’d like to help me end what you started.

So should I say a few words or…

Can I ask you something?

Yeah, sure.

What do you think of “Lady Hawk”?

Yeah, that’s terrible.

“Hawk Eve”?

No, that’s worse.

Damn, okay. Hawk Shot. Like “hot shot.” But you know, “Hawk.”


“Lady Arrow”?

None of those.

Okay, fine.

BARTON: You know what, actually, I have an idea.

Something strange in the air today

The sun is gone and the clouds turn gray

Just what’s comin’ is hard to say I don’t know

There’s a battle above the street

The ground is ruined and below our feet

The sky’s turned red and I feel the heat gotta go

Who can save us Our city sings

We need the hope that salvation brings

You have the power to find the light

Avengers assemble and fight the fight

Save the city and help us win

Save us all from the state we’re in

Things look dark But I know this can’t be the end

There’s a future and I know that

With the strength you bring us We’ll rise again

Avengers unite ‘Cause we’ve got to hear you say

I could do this all

Save the city and help us win

Save us all from the state we’re in

The day looks tough But we’re New York strong

And eight million people Just can’t be wrong

We love all kinds But Loki you don’t belong

So get gone

The rent and garbage are both sky high

But I love New York!

Is our battle cry

We’re ready to fight Never have to ask why

Bring it on!

Yes, the city’s on the brink

And it may smell

But we like that stink

We lived through the eighties And this too shall pass

Avengers assemble and kick some ass!

Save the city and help us win

Save us all from the state we’re in

Things look dark But I know this can’t be the end

There’s a future and I know that

With the strength you bring us, We’ll rise again

Avengers unite ‘Cause we’ve got to hear you say

I could do this all day

The Hulk is incredible, smashing things up

While Iron Man takes to the sky

Captain America’s strong

And that Thor is a God

And Lord knows they’re easy on the eyes

Black Widow’s a knockout Who can knock you out

And when Ant-Man flies, You won’t hear a sound

While Hawkeye seems cool

Like a really nice guy

He just wished that New York Wasn’t their battleground

I’ve got to get the Tesseract

The battle’s just begun

We’ll conquer the Chitauri

Then get shawarma when we’re done

Just how are we to fight them?

We’ll do it as a team

First Thor, unleash your lightning

Then Natasha, that’s your cue.


Then Hawkeye, hit the bullseye

There’s no better shot than you


Tony, you’ve got nukes to catch

Be careful not to crash.


And Hulk, you know the magic word is…

Hulk, you know the magic word is

Hulk, you know the magic word is

Smash smash smash!


Save the city and help us win

Save us all from the state we’re in

Things look dark, But I know this can’t be the end

It can’t be the end

If the city’s trashed When you take your bow

We’ll blame you then, But you’re good for now

Avengers unite ‘Cause we’ve got to hear you say

Got to hear you Got to hear you say

I could do this all day

Save the city and help us win

Save us all from the state we’re in

I could do this all day

We could do this all day!
