Marvel’s Daredevil took off to a great start. The series opener ushered us through the beginning of a journey. Right from the start we see Charlie Cox’s Matt taking on a group of human traffickers. Who is this man decked out in all black? The best part of seeing the Daredevil character enter into the series was that not only could he give a punch, he could take one too.
In his day life, Matt is an up and coming lawyer who just opened a law firm with Elden Henson’s Foggy. Both characters work great together, bouncing back and forth between inside jokes and quirkiness. Then Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen comes into the picture. After being Foggy and Matt’s first case, Karen begins to work for Nelson and Murdock Law, but not before connecting the dots to a bigger scheme happening in Hell’s Kitchen. There’s a new man in the city, who wants nothing more than to take over Hell’s Kitchen in whatever means possible, whether than means murder, drugs or extortion. Russians are kidnapping, Madame Gao is making drugs, Nobu from the Yakuza has blueprints and Leland Owlsey is moving money. We’ve seen all the players, but one. Who is this man who can’t be named.
Everything is on point for this new series. The writers have shown us enough that we will keep wanting more. We’ve seen the toxic waste flashback, but we’re still unsure of Matt’s full abilities. For now, he’s just a normal blind man.
Marvel’s Daredevil Season Finale: “Daredevil” (01 x 13)
Finally, the season finale of Marvel’s Daredevil has come. Can we just freak out for a moment about how great this season was? This episode definitely left the season with a cherry on top.
Fisk’s takeover has come to an end.
With Ben dead, Foggy and Matt reunited and got onto the same page. Wilson Fisk needs to be brought down. Karen joined the crusade to takedown Fisk and with Matt’s help in the black mask, they succeeded. Detective Hoffman was being held captive by Owlsley and when Daredevil found him, he had no choice but to make it to the precinct alive to give his statement.
From there arrests were made all over the city, from cops to lawyers to the Congressman. We particularly liked the scene where the secretary from the Bulletin was cuffed and dragged out. How guilty Ellison, Ben’s boss, must have felt.
Fisk’s first mistake was making everything about Vanessa. He needed to get to her. During his fight with Daredevil, he blames him for everything that’s happened. But in the end, the only thing left for Wilson Fisk was a blank prison wall to stare at. His strength wasn’t enough to defeat Matt or the law.
Although the episode was pretty straight forward tying up loose ends, some questions were left unanswered. Where is Madame Gao? Is Owlsley alive? And what about Black Sky? Thankfully Netflix has promised us a second season. Especially since they left us on such a cliffhanger, a Daredevil. That’s right! The episode ended on Daredevil in a new costume, all red with horns jumping off a building. We can’t wait to see what else is in store.
Marvel’s Daredevil: “The Ones We Leave Behind” (01 x 12)
Ben Urich is dead. I repeat, Ben Urich is dead.
When Ben returned home and was ready to blog about the truth for the first time, Fisk was sitting right there. The price for visiting his mother was Urich’s life. We watched the anger in Wilson’s eyes as he strangled Ben until his lifeless body fell to the floor.
Fisk’s emotions seem to be getting the best of him. First with the Russians and now Urich. Mistakes are piling up for Wilson Fisk, will he be his own end?
Daredevil found Madame Gao’s drug lair. The old woman wasn’t to thrilled and laid Matt out before she disappeared into the wind. Now that Fisk has lost the Russians, Nobu and Madame Gao, how will his plan continue to roll out?
The end of the episode revealed that Madame Gao and Owlsey were behind Vanessa’s poisoning. They blame her for Fisk’s sudden softness and mistakes. But attempting to take her out didn’t work, so now what? And what will Fisk do when he finds Leland was the main culprit?
Marvel’s Daredevil: “The Path of the Righteous” (01 x 11)
The series finale is coming up fast and Daredevil is ready to prep us for it.
Matt is ready to get back on his feet, but one question has haunted him. How was Fisk’s suit not affected? It has to be some type of armor. Matt makes it his mission to find the man that makes the armored suits for Fisk and get one for himself. He’s no fool, death isn’t coming that close to him again.
Karen and Ben’s questions to Fisk’s delusional mom in the nursing home has some weary consequences. Who will pay? When Wesley finds that Fisk’s mom had some unwanted visitors, we realize it’s only a matter of time until someone ends up dead. But who will it be? Ben? Karen? Both?
Just when the writers make us think that Karen needs to be saved from Wesley kidnapping her, they surprise us with a twist. Threatening Karen hasn’t worked in the past, so I’m not sure why he thought it was going to work this time. It was a great scene watching Wesley with his cocky attitude try to bluff his way out of death, but Karen ends up gunning him down and running for her life.
Now that Wesley is out of the picture, he’s no longer a suspect for the attack on Fisk at the fundraiser. Leland Owlsley has been pretty suspicious lately. Was he behind the attack? And who was the attack for? Fisk or Vanessa?
