Hawkeye not only focused on Clint Barton, it also explored the character of Kate Bishop in an extensive manner, setting up her future in the MCU. Star Hailee Steinfeld reveals two of her personal favorite scenes from the series where she felt how it is being part of the franchise and a really special connection with co-star, Yelena Belova.
The actress playing Kate Bishop, Hailee Steinfeld reflected on her role and her favorite scenes in the series. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, when asked about which of all the scenes is closest to her, the first that came into her mind was the car chase in Episode 3 which was seen in various trailers of the series.
Steinfeld shared, "The car chase in episode 3... with Jeremy and myself, we had the absolute time of our lives. I had a moment where we shot the first take and I literally just was like, 'Yeah, this is absolutely why I did this. This is being part of the MCU."
Steinfeld added, "It was just so amazing, because this show is so beautifully balanced with these grounded characters and these very human emotional conversations, and of course, in the perfect MCU fashion, the car chases and the wild stunts and fight sequences."

She calls the said scene an “epic” one, "That was one of the first moments I had where I felt like, I had been in this very character-driven world, and then we were thrown in the middle of this car chase, and it was just the most epic thing."
As epic as it is, said car chase also showcased the variety of trick arrows that Clint Barton has in his arsenal and these are a great upgrade, most are useful in their own ways. The Pym arrow also made an amazing appearance showing what Pym particles could do.
After sharing that the car chase was her in her element, she also revealed a scene which is as memorable for her as the one previously mentioned. Steinfeld recalls the scene in Episode 5 where Kate Bishop and Yelena Belova talked over some mac and cheese while warning Kate on her plans to kill Clint, threatening her to never interfere with it.
In the said scene, the chemistry of Steinfeld and Florence Pugh looked so natural that their friendship transcends beyond the screen. Steinfeld said, "That was some of the most fun I've had working and Florence is incredible in that scene. That was really special, and fun to play through."
It was a hilarious scene. Kate arrived in her apartment which was just razed by fire, Yelena sits beside the table and offers Kate some mac and cheese that she just made. Yelena even dissed Kate for not having enough cutlery for guests, and in her defense, Kate was living alone. (Does that mean she washes the dishes every after meal?) Yelena even shared how much she loves hot sauce.
