This episode had some pretty revealing flashbacks that showed us what young Matt went through growing up. His asshole mentor, Scott Glenn’s Stick, opened the series and gave Daredevil a whole new direction.

There’s something off about Matt’s teacher Stick. Although he made it a very interesting episode, he also raised a lot of questions. Did he or did he not purposely find Matt when he was young? And why is he so concerned with what Nobu is bringing over in the cargo container?

Stick obviously has commitment issues, especially since he walked out on Matt 20 years ago after he gave him a bracelet made out of an ice cream wrapper. Now he’s returned to New York to assassinate Black Sky, but he still finds time to teach Matt the importance of not building attachments in life.

The most interesting part of this episode was that fact that Stick wanted Matt to move from vigilantism to killing. His words didn’t stick for long because after seeing the chained child in the cargo contained, Daredevil stopped Stick’s arrow. This led to a huge fight between Matt and Stick, which ended in Stick losing and leaving.

Ben Urich found some time to give Karen some tough love, all while she was back in forth between crushing on Foggy and Matt. After Foggy and his bat saved her, it seems like she’s all his. Who knew Foggy’s stalking would come in handy?

Stick’s return to Matt’s life brought a whole new dynamic to the show. It finally connected Matt with the Yakuza storyline, which we really don’t know too much about. One thing we didn’t find out was if Black Sky lived. Is he on the loose? And who was the man Stick talked to? So many questions and we’re almost halfway through the series.

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.

SPOILER ALERT:

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?

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?
