Did You Know?


Wesley mentions that a Senator Cherry wants to meet Fisk. In the comics, Fisk backed a politician named Cherryh (apparently named after the s.f. writer C.J.Cherryh, who added the final 'h' at her editor's suggestion to make her name seem less like that of a romance writer). See more »


At the end of the episode, Foggy places a call to 911, but hangs up after a few rings. Even if the call could get to that many rings before being answered, a 911 hang-up is called an abandoned call, and 911 services immediately follow up on these by either dispatching an officer to the location (if available) or by calling the number back. Because he is calling from a cell phone we can assume that the 911 system was not able to determine the address, but Foggy's phone doesn't ring afterward from the call-back. Abandoned calls could be domestic violence incidents or situations where the perpetrator has forced the caller to hang up. See more »


Vanessa Marianna: So, give me an idea what you're after.
Matt Murdock: I'm not sure.
Vanessa Marianna: Good... art isn't furniture. If you knew exactly what you were looking for, you'd be just decorating. Art should speak to you... move you.

Vanessa Marianna: This one, for example. One of my favorite pieces.
Matt Murdock: Describe it to me.
Vanessa Marianna: Imagine a sea of tonal reds. The color of anger... of rage... but also the color of the heart... of love... hope. This strikes the perfect balance between the two.
Matt Murdock: I don't know, it sounds aggressive.
Vanessa Marianna: All depends on ...

Another man's evil does not make you good.
6 August 2017 | by jhudson-11704See all my reviews

This episode gives us another great fight scene, good emotional/intellectual scenes, and the first face-to-face meeting of our hero and villain...well, technically two.

Let's start with the emotional scenes in this episode. First, there was the incredible scenes of faith and morality between Matt and his priest, Father Lantom. This is a truly great meeting and Lantom tells a great story of the time he saw the devil, in his time as a missionary. It is a powerful scene that informs Matt that just because Fisk is the bad guy, doesn't mean he is the good guy, especially if Matt kills Fisk. There was more powerful scenes when the team find out that their beloved client, Mrs Cardenas, a lovely old lady, was killed, not directly but ordered by Fisk. I am really sad that she is gone as she was so sweet and innocent, but it really helps the storyline and furthers the main characters.

In this episode, we also get two crucial meetings. The first one is between Matt and Fisk. Matt, not in his vigilante guise, meets Fisk's lover, Vanessa, in order to get an insight into Fisk. While meeting her, Fisk happens to stop by. Matt is clearly angry that he is near him right now, but he hides it pretty well when talking with Fisk. Fisk, however, seems like he might think that Matt could be the man in the mask, because his voice and the way he talks about helping people, sounds like the man in the mask on the night of the bombings. While it does look that Fisk is suspicious, he is also clearly dismissing it as Matt is blind.

The fight scene, interlaced with this episode, was fast-paced and brutal. Matt fights against Nobu, a deadly ninja and the leader of the Yakuza, or whoever they are, after Mrs Cardenas is killed. The fight is super-intense as Matt suffers various cuts and wounds. Nobu is accidentally killed in the fight and Matt escapes but not before Fisk arrives and takes a couple shots at him. This is the first time that Fisk meets the man in the mask, and you can see that while Fisk is clearly angry and annoyed at Matt's interference, you can see that he sort of respects Matt's mission of saving Hell's Kitchen.

Also, small thing here, but Foggy now knows that Matt is the vigilante.

+ Fight scene + Matt and Father Lantom + Matt meets Fisk/Fisk meets the Man in the Mask + Powerful emotional scenes + Foggy knows +/- Mrs Cardenas is killed off but it is important to the story.

Final Score: 9.6/10
