Trivia

When Matt tries to "listen to the city" in order to locate Karen, he gets overwhelmed with the numerous sounds he has to interpret and needs coaching from Elektra to focus. In Daredevil mythology, Matt's powers force him to have to interpret everything around him at a remarkably fast rate. He hears, smells, feels and senses everything within range of his Radar sense and has to decipher each one because there's no way for him to ignore, nor tune them out; he lives in this world in constant flux so it takes great mental discipline to control his abilities.

Goofs

At around the 32 minute mark when Daredevil speaks with Elektra, Daredevil takes off his helmet and reveals his face and hair. Though the black cloth that can be seen around his neck is done. Later, once they are done talking, he stands up and the cloth is clearly back, covering his head. See more »

Quotes

Karen Page: What is it, to be a hero? Look in the mirror and you'll know. Look into your own eyes and tell me you are not heroic. That you've not endured, or suffered, or lost the things you care about most. And yet here you are. A survivor of Hell's Kitchen, the hottest place anyone's ever known. A place where cowards don't last long, so you must be a hero. We all are. Some more than others, but none of us alone. Some bloody their fists trying to keep the Kitchen safe, others bloody the streets in the ...

I'm Daredevil
12 April 2016 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

This season of Daredevil has been largely superior than the first in my opinion. The 4 or 5 best episodes of the entire series are a part of season 2, but perhaps as a whole, there's a certain amount of cohesiveness that's missing from the second go around, and that showed in the season finale.

As I'm sure everyone reading this knows, The Defenders series is right around the corner. With that, I would think comes The Hand as the main villain(s), so I was interested to see just how this season wraps up that ongoing threat. For the most part, it worked. While I was never a huge fan of Nobu as a so called "big bad", he made for a worthy opponent to Daredevil. Unfortunately, he was largely overshadowed by the other antagonists of this season.

The introduction of Frank Castle and Elektra were handled probably as nicely as I could have hoped. Frank doesn't get a whole lot to do in the finale (could have used a little bit more), his presence was felt throughout this 13 episode run. Elektra on the other hand, played a huge part in the climax for the situation with the Hand, and I would assume is a central focus going forward.

The team up fight between Elektra and Daredevil (and sort of Punisher) was cool to cap the season off, but I wasn't shocked at all that Elektra 'died'. Every time a hero and his/her significant other has the "were going to get out of here and start a new life together" conversation, you know it means bad news.

Foggy taking a new job with Jeri Hogarth's firm was a cool addition and makes me think that he may be involved with The Defenders series in some way. As for Karen, well apparently Matt felt the need to reveal his identity to her. I can't really imagine she takes the news lightly, considering all that she has been through over the past season. It also felt weird watching Matt go from being pretty much in love with Karen, to wanting to leave the city with Elektra, back to Karen, all within a few episodes time.

With all that said, this season did some phenomenal things for this universe even if it doesn't work as a complete season as well as it probably should have. And hey, giving Daredevil his classic Billy Club's was a nice touch.

+Satisfying conclusion for Elektra & The Hand

+Billy Clubs

+Sets up Defenders

-Matt's romantic life feels inconsistent

-Doesn't all work as a cohesive season

8.0/10
