Narrator: Sarah Natochenny

Black Widow: Bad Blood Episode 6 continues the epic tale of Natasha Romanoff, and her hunt for revenge. Or answers. Ideally, both. For somebody has made a grave mistake in crossing her.


The Ailing Soldier in Black Widow: Bad Blood Episode 6

Natasha Romanoff is a hero who has seen it all and had the confidence to keep on going. Now, in Black Widow: Bad Blood Episode 6, Natasha is facing a whole new sort of enemy. Her past is catching up to her, and she’s not the only one on the hunt.

Last we saw, Natasha had finally tracked down a potential lead for what has been done, as well as an ally (or at least a fellow target). Only, things haven’t quite turned out how she planned, and the whole situation sent her down memory lane. A less than pleasant experience, when you have baggage like the Widow’s.

Black Widow: Bad Blood is part of an ongoing series on Serial Box. It’s the second Marvel series to hit the platform, and it is currently updating on a weekly basis. Soon, it won’t be the only series actively updating, either.

Uncertainty Made Her Uncomfortable

Mikki Kendall continues her foray into Romanoff’s story in Black Widow: Bad Blood Episode 6. You would think that half the danger would end, once she managed to find somebody to team up with. But you’d be wrong.

In fact, the story is getting more complicated rather than less, with too many possibilities, and even more questions left to be answered. The condition of her ally is really only adding to the concern, when you think about it.

I love the rising tension of this series. Not only have they perfectly captured Black Widow’s voice, but they’ve turned her series into something that feels both like a Marvel series and a spy serial. It’s absolute perfection.

The details woven throughout the narrative have helped to establish the world that Natasha is working in, as well. References to S.H.I.E.L.D., Fury, and other potential allies (or complications, as the case may be). None of whom offer an easy solution to the problem at hand.


Sarah Natochenny is still at the helm of this harrowing adventure of Natasha’s, with “A Trap with a View” taking a darker turn for the season. Natochenny really has perfectly captured the tone and voice of Natasha, as well as those around her.

There were a lot of subtleties to enjoy in Black Widow: Bad Blood Episode 6. The minor details and sounds are woven into the narrative, the inflections Natochenny included in her speaking. All of it combined together to create a brilliant experience.

Honestly, the more I listen to this series, the more eager I become to get my hands on the next episode. This has easily been a thrilling experience all around and is proof that Marvel series will do well on this platform.


Black Widow: Bad Blood Episode 6 felt like such a short episode, but realistically, that was only because I found myself really enjoying it. Okay, the conclusion admittedly made me want to continue as well, but if you’re following along with the story, you know exactly why I feel that way.

I sincerely am enjoying this series so much, and not only because Natasha’s world fits nicely into the Serial Box platform. They’re doing justice to her character, as well. It’s making me even more excited for the Jessica Jones series, which is due to launch this Thursday (keep your eyes open for those reviews).
