Forget Matt’s world being on fire, this episode set the series on fire! Every episode of Marvel’s Daredevil has been great so far, but this one really knocked it out of the park.
Our jaws dropped when Matt and Wilson finally met in Vanessa’s gallery. Wilson was completely in the dark, who this blind art buyer was. But it seemed like Vanessa’s subconscious knew the feud between the two of them, especially when she said, “You could always ask him yourself”, as Fisk walked through the glass doors.
No great episode could get out of the Daredevil writers’ hands without being deadly. We knew Matt was heading into a trap from the beginning. His battle with Nobu was gut-wrenching, especially since he was a worthy opponent for our hero. We had no knowledge whether he would live or die.
The plot twist wasn’t the fight with Nobu though, it was Foggy finding out the truth. Foggy discovered Matt almost dead in his apartment and was shocked to find that Matt was actually the Daredevil. We struggled to hold back tears when Foggy said, “Are you really even blind?!” Foggy felt betrayed, but could you blame him?
The struggle within Matt remains, does he want to kill Fisk or does he have to kill Fisk? How will this play out in the last few episodes?
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?
