Billy Russo is on the loose, building an army of criminally inclined, disaffected military veterans. The Schultz family is willing to do anything to keep their secrets and further their political reach and influence. Both of those groups are coming after Frank Castle, for different reasons. Anyone think going after Castle is a good idea?
It’s been a busy season for the Punisher, as Frank and company have to deal with multiple threats. It’s a rough time to be anywhere near Frank Castle, and that shows from the first scene of this episode forward.
Everything comes to a head here, as Matt Murdock’s crusade runs headlong into Wilson Fisk’s webs and machinations. It’s the true Daredevil versus the Kingpin, with Dex the Faux-Devil running around in the background.
After a few false starts, Jessica has a bead on who stabbed her at the end of episode one. While her foe isn’t someone with powers, which is a nice change for her, he’s incredibly smart and possibly her most dangerous foe yet.
The Russo plotline has been getting a bit more attention the last few episodes than the mess with Amy being hunted by the Schultz family. Last episode ended with a burst of gunfire as Castle and Curtis went after Russo and his gang of dangerous vets. “My Brother’s Keeper” starts where that ended, with lead…
The end is almost here for Matt, Karen, Foggy and the rest, as Daredevil’s final season ticks down. The Kingpin seems supremely ascendant, and everyone is turning on Nelson, Murdock, and company.
We’ve seen a good bit about Jessica and Trish so far this season. The opening of “AKA Customer Service is Standing By” focuses on one of the new characters, Erik Gelden.
The second season of Punisher hits the rough halfway point with “One Bad Day,” which describes things for a lot of the characters. Then again, most of them have more than one.
The season, and sadly series, are drawing to an end as everything ramps up. Somehow, Matt is in worse shape than Dex after their epic fight, even though Dex fell about a story to a hard floor and landed on his back. I guess that Daredevil costume really is well armored.
In the first episode of the season, we saw a shocking attack on Jessica. The second followed Trish through the changes she’s been going through since Malus’ treatments starting showing their effects. For episode three, we shift back to Jessica and her injuries, summed up decently by the title “AKA I Have No Spleen.”
