Episode Title: Memento Mori
Originally Aired: November 17th 2017

We have reached the conclusion, the final battle in Frank Castle’s war on the men who murdered his family and left him for dead. The only one left standing is William “Billy” Russo, former Cerberus team member, former best friend and the series’ one true villain. Most of the bad guys up to this point did it for the money or for a twisted sense of justice, Billy did it out of a sense of entitlement and enjoyment. He is the first bad guy to attack innocent people, making him the one we want put down the hardest. Continue reading The Punisher S:01 E:13

If home is where the heart is, where does Frank’s heart belong? Is it in the afterlife with his wife and kids or is it in the real-world as an agent of vengeance and justice? We get the answer in this week’s episode of The Punisher but it isn’t straight forward, it, like everything else in this show is complicated and ugly. Continue reading The Punisher S:01 E:12

Originally Aired November 17th 2017

If you think of the thirteen episodes of this season as a movie we are solidly in the third act and barreling towards what promises to be an action-packed climax. Tonight’s episode was present very differently than any of the preceding episodes, instead of following a timeline with occasional flashbacks this episode turned time on its head.

Episode Title: The Judas Goat
Originally Aired: November 17th 2017

Episode six was a lesson in dichotomies it as simultaneously the sweetest and most brutal episode of the series so far. Frank’s delusions and flashbacks to the death of his family receive an unexpected uptick in viciousness. The tale of a soldier struggling with his return to life as a civilian took a dramatic and fatal turn. A real life story of military training that is every PETA members worst nightmare and a betrayal round out the depressing side of the episode. Continue reading The Punisher S:01 E:06

We have made it to episode five and we are finally starting to get some answers to some questions big and small. We learn the identity of the person that recorded the video that lead to the death of Frank’s family and the attempted murder of Lieberman.  We learned that Madina has sex just like you would expect her too, she never surrenders control anywhere. We learned what was really behind Project Cerberus and what lead to the death of Madani’s partner. I would like to say it was something more interesting than it is but it is a very real-world reason.
