Daredevil S:02 E:11

Episode Title: .380
Original Aired: March 18th 2016

Things are really starting to ramp up towards the conclusion of season two. With just two more episodes to go, I am curious if each story line will get its own episode or if Matt will be working to stop the Blacksmith and the Hand at the same time. My Preference is to dedicate an episode to each storyline so we can really focus on what it means for our characters, even though one episode does not seem like enough to resolve things with the Hand because we just do not know very much. As Matt moves closer and closer to a resolution to the issues with Frank and the Hand his personal life is crumbling around him even faster. Continue reading Daredevil S:02 E:11

Episode Title: The Man in the Box
Originally Aired: March 18th 2016

Matt is being pulled in multiple directions in the latest episode of Netflix and Marvel’s Daredevil. Almost every character he has loved or fought against in the series makes an appearance or at least is mentioned. Frank is on the loose and the city is panicking as they wonder whom his next victim will be. Continue reading Daredevil S:02 E:10

Episode Title: 7 Minutes in Heaven
Originally Aired:March 18th 2016

The moments in this episode that give it its title go about as well as the popular game does for most teenagers. 7 minutes of nearly real time action will change the course of the remainder of the season in the most brutal fashion the show has ever seen. With Wilson Fisk making his return and quickly climbing the prison power rankings until he is once again the kingpin albeit a much smaller criminal word this time, but he is using this world to influence the next. Continue reading Daredevil S:02 E:09

Episode Title: Guilty as Sin
Originally Aired: March 18th 2016

The past collides with the present in the newest episode of Marvel’s Daredevil. We get to hear a little about what brought Elektra back into Matt’s life and the reason is not as simple as he originally thought. He wondered if it was her heart leading her or if she somehow figured out who he was and that she could use him to obtain her goals. The true answer was something he never expected, she has come back to him because it was part of her mission. A mission given to her by a man from Matt’s past, Stick, the man who trained him and apparently Elektra. Continue reading Daredevil S:02 E:08

Episode Title: Semper Fidelis
Originally Aired: March 18th 2016

Semper fidelis is the motto of the United States Marine Core and is commonly shortened to just Semper Fi. A Latin phrase that means always loyal or always faithful, it is unclear who the title is referring to at this point in the season. Matt has always had issues with lying, which is starting to alienate those closest to him. Elektra is loyal to no one and nothing other than her current desires. Matt’s professional and personal relationships with Foggy and Karen are being negatively affected by his time as Daredevil. Last season he lost a chance with Claire, what could being the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen cost him this time around? Continue reading Daredevil S:02 E:07

Episode Title: Regrets only
Originally Aired: March 18th 2016

This week sees the two main storylines of the season finally beginning to intersect. Elektra’s reasons for being in town and back in Matt’s life are becoming a little clearer and the hospitalized Punisher is awake and back in their lives as well. With a bogus public defender on the case, it falls to the law firm of Nelson and Murdock to take on the task of defending Frank Castle, the city’s most violent vigilante. Continue reading Daredevil S:02 E:06

Episode Title: Kinbaku
Originally Aired: March 18th 2016

The fifth installment to Daredevil’s second season is decidedly different from the previous four. The violence was at a minimum this time around contained to two scenes instead of throughout the episode. The main activity in this episode was flirting, between Foggy and Marci, Matt and Karen as well as Matt and Elektra. Continue reading Daredevil S:02 E:05

Episode Title: Penny and Dime
Originally Aired: March 18th 2016

The Punisher’s past was revealed in the newest episode of Marvel’s Daredevil. This week’s story focuses on three characters Matt, Karen and Frank, as the truth of what drives Frank is slowly drug into the light. We find out what happened to Frank to turn him into the man that we have seen in the last three episodes, and hopefully, we will find out why it happened in the remaining episodes.

Episode Title: New York’s Finest

This episode covered both ends of the spectrum; it started with long sequences of dialog and exposition and finished with the most action-filled scene of the series so far. We finally learn the Punisher’s first name, Frank, and that he believes he is doing what is right by preventing evil men from committing further atrocities. While I could always use more Foggy, this very good episode let us scratch the surface of what motivates our two heroes.

Episode Title: Dogs to a Gunfight

After the exciting conclusion to the first episode of the new season the second episode starts with Foggy on a frantic search for the injured Matt. The mystery of who Daredevil’s rooftop opponent was is slowly being brought into the light literally and figuratively. We finally get to see The Punisher in the light for the first time and get a good look at John Bernthal’s Frank Castle. We also learn that the moniker The Punisher is the code name given to him by the police and District Attorney’s office.  Continue reading Daredevil S:02 E:02
