There’s not a lot to like about Wilson Fisk, but you’d have to be extremely foolish to call him stupid. Fisk is a long-term planner who is utterly ruthless and fairly brilliant. The results of some of his schemes start turning up in “The Devil You Know,” a very ironic title on several levels.
Last episode, “Blindsided,” was a lot of action and focus on our titular character, Matt Murdock. Matt is barely in “The Perfect Game,” but we learn a lot about Benjamin “Dex” Poindexter, and see a good bit of the rest of the cast.
One of the things Daredevil has been great at is action. The fight scenes are done really, really, well, setting the bar higher for tv shows as far as I’m concerned. The realism they manage to capture, even with someone who is supposedly a master fighter like Matt used to be and is on his way back to, is very impressive.
A few of the rapidly spinning plots are starting to converge already as the third season of Daredevil starts picking up steam.
The first episode of Daredevil’s third and final season set up the new status quo for most of the major characters, and introduced a new one. “Please,” the second installment, moves everyone further along their paths.
Daredevil follows Luke Cage and Iron Fist in coming back for a final season. The first episode is titled “Resurrection,” and since everyone thinks he’s dead, it’s a good pick.
The Defenders wrap up their first season with a lot of things going on. There’s no announcement as yet about a second season, but it was months before they confirmed season two of Iron Fist, so that doesn’t necessarily mean anything. The basis for some friendships are formed, among both the heroes and at least some of the supporting cast. And at least one character takes a major step towards their comic book incarnation.
