Hawkeye Episode 6 Spoilers – The Identity of MCU Laura Barton
Now that the finale for Hawkeye has been aired, its time to do some Hawkeye episode 6 spoilers and let’s start with the biggest mystery in the series. The watch and the true identity of Clint Barton’s spouse Laura Barton.
Before we proceed, SPOILER ALERT
So in the final moments of Hawkeye episode 6, we see Clint Barton and Kate Bishop returning to the Barton farm after successfully taking down the Tracksuit Mafia and getting Eleanor Bishop (Vera Farmiga) arrested for the murder.
While Kate and the kids are bonding during Christmas morning, Clint talks to his wife and tells her about the success of his real mission. Getting back the Rolex which was taken at the Avengers Compound together with the Ronin costume and sword. Clint hands it to his wife Laura Barton (Linda Cardellini)…
The camera zooms in closer as Laura holds the watch…
And then flips it to reveal a number 19 etched at the back, just under the SHIELD logo.
And just who is Agent 19 in the Marvel Universe?
Its none other than Mockingbird aka Bobbi Morse.
So all this time since we met Laura and the kids in Avengers: Age of Ultron, we’ve been staring at the former agent known as Mockingbird. And true to canon, Clint and Mockingbird are married. Just like they were back in the 70s until Mockingbird’s “death”.
Only she wasn’t and that was actually a Skrull that died in Clint’s arms. She later resurfaced in Secret Invasion as part of a group of humans that have been kidnapped and replaced by the Skrulls that managed to return to Earth.
When she acclimated, she and Clint hooked up again and joined the New Avengers squad for a long while. She was even a member during Avengers vs X-Men…
But that’s a story for another time.
At least its now confirmed that Laura Barton is indeed Mockingbird aka Agent 19 and that she’s still in a loving relationship with Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye!
