I enjoyed the first two episodes. Lots of good character moments and humour and they're giving Clint a good emotional arc with the guilt over his actions as Ronan. The way he squirms when anyone thanks him for his heroic actions as Hawkeye is really telling as the public don't know he was Ronan.

The 'Thanos was right' meme acknowledgement was a gut punch.

Clint Larping was great as well. All in all a strong, if slow , start. I do wonder though (BW spoilers) Spoiler
How this is going to lead in to Yelena's appearance and if they have time to do her story justice because we're a third of the way in.
But then I wondered about time constraints for FatWS and Loki was well and they turned out okay.


eta: I do hope they've got some decent action setpieces lined to show off the Hawkeyes' stuff though.

Spoiler
Okay, the dog has to be something special. The missing eye makes it too obvious it's Nick Fury using alien tech, so I'm hoping it's just a particularly dedicated Skrull.

Episode 3!

So... where did they get the trick arrows? The only person that bought a quiver was Kate and there’s no indication that she’d brought Clint’s stuff. He just seem to randomly find his gear in the Tracksuit base?

Other than that, great episode. Loved Echo’s backstory segment. Based on what people have said, was the Fisk’s hand? Explains why she’s got in for Ronin.

Still loving Clint and he finally got some bow work in. It’s nice that he’s no longer killing and going strictly for injuring shots. I am not expert on it but the ASL conversation he messes up with Echo and the distinction between head of hearing and deaf was interesting.

The phone conversation with Nathaniel was heartbreaking as was Clint’s declaration that he isn’t any kind of role model. Despite sitting next to someone who is literally basing themselves on Clint.

Still it feels like early days of the story though when in fact we’re halfway through. I’m beginning to think Yelena must only cameo because I can’t see how they are going to fit a meaty arc for her in,

I'm loving it so far. I like them showing Clint having the wear and tear of being a spy/field agent and then an Avenger with no super powers. And I love Jeremy Renner's performance, carrying through that desperation of not having seen his kids in five plus years, and now he has them back and he's just wanting to be with them as much as he can but he's stuck cleaning up this mess. When his youngest called him and told him 'It's ok if you're not home for CHristmas', yeah, that was such a gut punch. I imagine there were a lot of times he was busy for holidays and family time and now he just wants to make up for what he missed. And Crazed, the trick arrows, he had them with him when he surrendered to the TrackSuits.

Glad someone else is watching!

Oh, and missed the edit window, but I’m 99% that was Fisk, cause that chuckle sure sounded like Vincent D’Onofrio. And apparently foreign language dubs used the same voice actors for that chuckle as they did for Fisk in the Netflix MCU

Maya Lopez/Echo is apparently linked to Fisk in the comics. It certainly sounded like Fisk to me but I'd already heard lots of theories he was going to be in it, so I thought I might be hearing what I expected.
