We open up with a fight scene of Daredevil breaking up a robbery attempt and saving a woman's life. The scene cuts away to show the Daredevil standing in a church with the woman crying. The next scene we cut to is Matt Murdock and Foggy walking down the street. Foggy notices that he has blood from a cut on his neck and wipes it off of him. Matt is confronted at this point as to why his crusade as the Daredevil is worth it all. Matt explains that he is serving justice in a way that he can't in the court room and protecting the people of Hell's Kitchen. Which is clearly what he has set out to do in the first season. Which is why Hells Kitchen is still safe! I mean he did stop the King Pin Wilson Fisk... Which if you ask me was a movie worthy villain at best!
The next scene would introduce well sort of introduce Frank Castle into the show. A family of Irish mobsters were having a meeting behind closed doors in their own club there was between 12-15 men and only one made it out alive. The one man to make it out alive I of course comes to Murdock for help with a lawyer . They found the man in their nightly visit to the bar. He was stressed and was ready to pull the trigger. Matt calmed him down. The three of them listened to the mans story who would eventually get shot during telling the story. He ended up in the hospital by the name of Steve. Seems to me like the Daredevil needs to be out trying to figure out who the man is in Hells Kitchen killing people. He does just that and uses Foggy to help him out.
Foggy however isn't to successful where as Daredevil is. He figures out this is somehow linked to Wilson Fisk. So Matt takes the information and goes as Daredevil to what looks like a meat locker or factory in search of the man that is killing people in his city! What he does find is bodies and people that are half alive hanging from meat hooks.
Foggy however gets confronted by the gang he is trying to get information from. He finally gets them to provide information. The man says that it was an army that cut the shipment down to pieces. Again people thinking that this one man is an army. They really have no idea at this point what is going on. Matt while in the meat locker finds out from one of the men that it's just one guy doing all of the killing!
The next scene we cut to a man walking through the hospital in combat boots. We switch to the back of his head and can see a gun swinging from his shoulder. He knocks out a cop and opens fire on the man from the bar. At this point the shadows are shrouding his face but we all know who it is. We all know that Frank Castle the punisher is after this man.
As the scene continues we see Castle and Murdock on a rooftop fighting and having it out. Daredevil is taken out but goes right back after him. Still we haven't seen his face! The fight continues Matt finally gets Punisher to the ground, but Punisher shoots him and he falls off of the roof.
Welcome back Daredevil! This episode really showed that even after Fisk was locked away that Daredevil still had a mission to protect Hells Kitchen. We also have the introduction of the Punisher Also known as Frank Castle. Which in my opinion giving him some mystery until that final scene was a great way to introduce him. I will say that I am looking forward to how this season will progress and the character development of the punisher character!
I give this episode a 8/10! I'm glad that Daredevil season 2 is here and I hope to see how this is going to connect with the Rest of the Netflix universe!
