Did Hawkeye Episode 4 Debunk Kingpin Theories?

Clint’s wife, Laura found out that Sloan Ltd. is a shell company which means it has no address and technically no employees as it is just a front for crime syndicates such as the Tracksuit mafia. Said shell company is being used to launder money and it was traced to the real CEO behind the gang—it is none other than Jack Duquesne, the fiancé of the mother of Kate Bishop.


Now that he has been tied up to the Tracksuit mafia, things circle back to the start wherein the gang attacked the black-market auction he was participating in and they were looking for a watch that was retrieved from the Avengers compound. Whatever their interest in the watch remains unknown but it is surely something they are desperate to have.

Rumors about the arrival of Kingpin has been spreading since Episode 3 where a main in a suit went to Maya's karate class and even pressed her chubby cheeks. Later in the episode, Maya and Kazi were talking about how the search for Ronin is affecting their real business and the team may be affected because of it.

Speculations are on Vincent D'Onofrio's Wilson Fisk strengthened considering the comic book relation of Kingpin and Echo, plus the confirmation of Kevin Feige that Charlie Cox will be reprising his role as Daredevil. However, with Jack Duquesne being tied up to the Tracksuit mafia leadership, this caused some disruption to the expectations of the fans awaiting Kingpin's return.

Still, light could be shed on the last remaining episodes of Hawkeye whether Kingpin will arrive but it has been promised by the creators of the show that the uncle of Maya will be resolved anytime before the series ends.

Hawkeye is now streaming on Disney Plus.
