SWALLOW: Russian intelligence term for a female agent used for sexual entrapment in a “honey trap” operation.
Clint watches from the rooftop as his mark enters the dinner party; one he would never have been invited to, due to his background and lack of money, compared to the people who had been invited. She’s in a deep blue gown and she has brunette hair, although he knows from her file that she’s a natural red head. Maybe it’s a wig, he muses, not that her hair color matters: she’s always lethal, always a dangerous weapon.
He observes her moving around the room, going up to certain men, appearing to talk to them and laughing when they say something to her. She eventually appears to whisper something in their ear, and Clint watches as they exit through a side door and move into the shadows, apparently waiting for her. He’s not surprised that they do what she asks without a second thought. Hell, he would probably do the same thing if asked, if he didn’t know who she was. If a beautiful woman asked something of him, he would make sure it happened, and damn the consequences. He figures these are her marks, but they have nothing to do with his mission of taking the Black Widow out.
