Mitchell Ellison gets stabbed by a sharp item in the belly and falls to the ground. Time passes and Mitchell's body is next to the couch, not moving and lifeless. Karen even sits on the couch next to the body, not worrying about her boss. Agent Nadeem comes by and even glances at Mitchell's body. Since he hasn't received any medical help, it is presumed he is dead. During the next episode, he is in the hospital bed doing just fine. See more »

It felt like I was reading the comic
21 October 2018 | by wgeddingsSee all my reviews

This was an incredible episode. I am trying to avoid spoilers though if you have watched the prior episodes, you likely see all of this coming. Each character/actor does a superb job of filling his/her role, advancing the plot and creating a wild ride. The slow burn on Dex is great and reminded me of Palpatine and Anakin from Star Wars. Matt's defication to his friends and Foggy's commitment are outstanding. Even the normally annoying "journalists are noble" them in shows played just right with Karen and Ellison. Nadeem's thoughts about lying to his family and desire to do right are just a small part of why Nadeem has become a great character this season and is terrific to watch. Meanwhile, the fight at The Bulletin is the confrontation I hoped to see and the main combatants act/react like I would imagine they would. Expertly played, scripted and executed with plenty of light to see (I hate when the have a battle in a dark room with people in dark clothes so you can barely see the great moves the stunt people work so hard in doing). This was what I hoped for in a Daredevil episode. Thank you.
