Everyone’s favorite snarky, alcoholic, super-powered private investigator is back for her third and final season, as Netflix continues to finish off the partnership with Marvel. It’s a damn shame, considering the shows and the shared universe were fantastic, but nothing lasts forever. To quote a more famous Marvel hero, “Part of the journey is the end.”
Frank isn’t known for being kind to his foes, and he tends to leave a lot of damage in his wake. We’ve seen enough now to know there are two different battles he’s going to be fighting, and neither one is going to be pretty.
Last episode was full of repercussions and fallout, ending with some hope for what’s to come. Now, things move forward again, as Fisk’s webs ensnare everyone and some try and fight their way free.
At the end of last episode, you pretty much knew what was coming for episode three. The Captor, whose name seems to be John Pilgrim according to IMDB, has a large force of men surrounding the sheriff’s office where Frank and Rachel are. We already know this is a dedicated band of hired killers.
Last episode saw an epic battle between Poindexter (Bullseye) and Matt (sorta Daredevil). I was especially struck by Poindexter appearing as Daredevil (really clever, Fisk), while Matt, in his black costume, looked a lot more like the comic book Bullseye.
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.
To no surprise at all, Frank managed to end up in a fair amount of trouble in the first episode of his second and final season. An unknown foe is sending skilled teams of mercenaries after a girl he met at Lola’s Roadhouse, Frank’s new friend Beth getting seriously wounded in the major fight.
