The fourth episode of Hawkeye has finally dropped and offered our first look at Florence Pugh‘s return as Yelena Belova. She takes on our favorite archer, building on the post-credit sequence from Black Widow. Yet, we only got a brief meeting between the two and we don’t know what exactly her role will be in the upcoming final two episodes. Luckily, the latest teaser trailer for the Disney+ series offers a tease of what’s to come with her character.
While the young Black Widow points out she is still going to kill Clint Barton, we see her in civilian clothes, which might build on the moment teased between her and Kate. There’s a parallel between the “shot not taken” that Clint talked about in the episode and the same done by Kate before Yelena jumped off the building.
The two develop an unlikely friendship not only opens up some fun ideas for future entries but also builds on the parallels that the series is set up between her and her unwilling mentor. We’ll see how she’ll tie into the story and push Clint to his limits, as she might become an unlikely ally at one point in the story.
