Since the first episode of Hawkeye, Maya Lopez grew from being the leader of the Tracksuit mafia to finding her own path in the end of the series. The third episode focused on her backstory where it was revealed that she had the same childhood as normal kids only that she is deaf and she is an amputee. Despite all those, she excelled in fighting as she reads the movements of her opponent before striking.

In the finale, she proved to be the bigger person and changed for the better. However, she became ruthless. Maya was trying to convince Kazi to leave the gang behind, together, but it turns out, Maya was given the leadership Kazi was working for. In the end, Maya kills Kazi with an arrow.

Kingpin is walking with a wound and going for help when he came across Maya. She held a gun in her hand and Kingpin claims they are family and that there are times when they couldn’t see eye to eye. It wasn’t seen where the bullet is but gunfire was heard while the camera pans up.

Her upbringing tells a lot about her and that maybe, if her father hadn’t been involved, she wouldn’t be, either. She’s a heroine of her own, an inspiration to many, especially to amputees and deaf people. Possibly, she has something good in her that if Hawkeye cannot answer, could be highlighted in her upcoming solo series which has been announced early on.

Hawkeye Finale is now streaming on Disney Plus.
