Rabbit in a Snowstorm

Matt and Foggy are hired by James Wesley to represent John Healy, an enforcer who was arrested for the murder of a local mob leader. Suspicious of Wesley’s connection to Union Allied, Matt convinces the jury to acquit Healy of murder. After the trial is over, Matt confronts Healy in his vigilante guise and forces him to name his employer: Wilson Fisk. After giving up the name, Healy warns Matt that Fisk will not only target him, but everyone he cares about; he then commits suicide. Meanwhile, Karen enlists struggling reporter Ben Urich to find evidence connecting Union Allied to Fisher’s murder. Fisk visits an art gallery and purchases a painting from its director, Vanessa Marianna. – Wikipedia Daredevil (TV Series)

Daredevil just got real. First, oh my goodness there is a LOT of blood and violence in this show. NOT for Captain Little Dude or other tiny eyes and ears. Second, OH THE CARNAGE!! I thought the previous episode’s one shot hallway combat scene was impressive, but they keep upping their game with each episode. The part about this episode that really got me excited was when we finally (FINALLY) saw Kingpin, aka Wilson Fisk, played by Vincent D’Onofrio. When Vincent D’Onofrio came on screen for the first time in the episode I had to hold in a fangirl squeak, because it looked like Kingpin had jumped off the comic book page and was on my TV! With a big enough TV it could even look like he was standing in my living room… makes me glad my TV isn’t that big. I probably would have passed out from excitement. Vincent D’Onofrio, how perfect is he!! “How does the painting make you feel?” “Alone.” Ouch. I instantly feared him and wanted to see more. This show is really getting good. The speech Murdock gave as his closing statements was moving. He very sneakily said pretty bluntly that his client was guilty as sin, but since the Prosecutor could not prove it, they had to let him go. Of course, he takes care of the guy afterwards. And by take care of he beats him into giving up Kingpin’s real name and the guy fears Kingpin so much (and rightly so) he takes his own life! DUDE! Spikes his own head! I am eager to see how they are going to top themselves in episode 4. Until next time!
