Did You Know?


There is a hint at Captain America: Civil War (2016) when Matt Murdock sits on the bench at the 15th Precinct. There is a poster over his right shoulder on the wall. See more »


When getting ready to repair Elena Cardenas' flat, Foggy removes his satchel. The camera switches to the reverse angle and he is still wearing it. See more »


Claire Temple: How do you... I mean, I know that you're blind, but you see so much. How?
Matt Murdock: I guess you have to think of it as more than just five senses. I can't see, not like everyone else, but I can feel. Things like balance and direction. Micro-changes in air density, vibrations, blankets of temperature variations. Mix all that with what I hear, subtle smells. All of the fragments form a sort of... impressionistic painting.
Claire Temple: Ok, but what does that look like? Like what do you actually see?
Matt Murdock: A world on fire.

A Fiery Episode

Season 1 Episode 5 | World On Fire This episode sheds light on three brewing relationships, whose formations seem to lay the path the series is currently heading to. There's Matt and Claire, which somehow if not entirely, displaces Karen Page off Matt's circle of potential love interests. And now we see Karen and Foggy, finally now seem to be getting along, hinting of a future pair (just a guess). The most intriguing of the pairs, though, is the one happening between Wilson Fisk and Vanessa. Vanessa appears to be as mysterious as Fisk, and thid early I could feel how big her role in Fisk's life's gonna be. The finale scene lives up to the episode's title. Overall, I can say it's fiery, a really good episode.
