Did You Know?


When Misti is sitting in her apartment on the couch she picks up a small thing case. This case is what U.S. Military medals come in. The medal inside is a Purple Heart. The Purple Heart is only awarded to U.S. Military members during combat operations. In certain cases, civilians can earn a purple heart if they were working closely with U.S. Military forces in combat operations. Purple Hearts are not awarded for Non-combat injuries. So the award that Misti Knight got is something that she could never have gotten given the events that preceded her injury. She would have more likely received a Law Enforcement Purple Heart which has more gold trim and specifically says Law Enforcement and Line Of Duty on it. The military counterpart has only a thin layer of gold trim. See more »

Not The Greatest Start For Season 2
22 June 2018 | by MadMax2710See all my reviews

I really enjoyed season 1. I thought the story was strong, the action was fun and I even enjoyed the second half when it got a little silly. But, season 2 starts out slow with no real sense of direction. It remided me of the first episode of the Defenders. However, the performances are still fun to watch and the action scenes in this episode were enjoyable. Hopefully, the rest of the season can do better than this.
