This episode marks the return of Hawk and Chick. Since their introduction in season 5’s episode 10, “Hawk and Chick”, fans have been craving their return and this week we got it. We’ve been anticipating this episode all the way back to the San Diego Comic Con panel where it’s title was revealed. Koji and Yuki are welcomed back with open arms in season 10 episode 8 “The Hawkening: Look Who’s Hawking Now”.
The important thing that needs to be kept in mind is that this episode should not be compared to “Hawk and Chick”. Objectively, “Hawk and Chick” may have been a little better in terms of emotional pay off and story line but this sequel was interesting none the less. This episode centered around common emotions that many feel at least once in their lifetime. Envy, regret and desire were a huge focus for this plot. Furthermore, financial obligations and the punishments that follow also added to the illusion of relate-ability.
Another great addition to this sequel was the introduction of Yuki’s family, more specifically her child and their home. “Bob’s Burgers” does a colorful job at molding it’s universe and giving even the most rare, quiet characters a place within it. The continuity truly aids in the story building process and was a sweet add on taken from “Hawk and Chick”.
Louise often projects the image of a leader in the Belcher family with her clever mind and ability to see things through. Despite being the youngest, Louise manages her siblings, occasionally her parents, and overall has a better grasp of her situations/ options. This latest installment was one of the rare times when we get to see her more vulnerable, childish side coupled with her disregard for consequences. Breaking several rules, and laws, she managed to manipulate almost everyone into getting her way. In “Hawk and Chick”, Louise was a mirror of Yuki (Chick) but this time around she was on the same tier as Koji.
Koji, much like Louise, acted rashly without a regard to the consequences his actions would bring. Both felt a need to be the center of attention and in pursuing that goal each caused harm and nurtured a sense of regret. Louise wanted to upstage Rudy while Koji potentially harmed the career of a superior actor.
