This episode picks right up after the aftermath of the “earthquake “. What this episode has done a much better job of setting up the main characters better. We see the that Matt is very conflicted with the fact that he is not Daredevil anymore. Essentially choosing to salvage his life by mending fences with Foggy and Karen doesn’t seem enough. It was good to see Matt and Foggy back together again. There friendship always felt real and genuine. It’s good that Foggy is trying to help as Matt feels compelled to go back to the life of hanging out on rooftops and busting heads.
Jessica Jones story is progressing as well as she is getting deep into her case. Very interesting that the police force seems to know so much about her and her doings. It was also very amusing to see the brief interactions, between her and Misty as the latter is clearly not taken any crap from Jessica. Great seeing Jeri Hogarth is back on the show to warn Jessica about getting in to deep while covering her own ass. Covering so much in fact that she has got Foggy watching out for her to see if she gets in any trouble and boy did she get in trouble! Having a brief encounter with Electra and ending up getting arrested my Misty and of course Matt Murdock is now her lawyer.
The Luke Cage part of the episode feels very fun. It’s cool that each area of the show has a different feel to it. Harlem and Hell’s Kitchen feels like two different places. Not only that but Harlem has changed as well as there seems to be a new threat on the streets manipulating kids and killing them off when finish. It didn’t take long for Luke Cage to be back on the streets busting heads. Finding out that the bad guy behind this is “Whitehead”. The highlight of the episode is the first meeting between Luke Cage and Iron Fist. While it’s not a match made in heaven it was a solid fight scene between the two which will obviously end up leading to a team up.
Overall a solid second episode that is a better step in the right direction. Giving the characters more to do while slowly bring everyone’s story together. The a villain so far does not seem compelling but hopefully this will impress the series goes on.
Score 7.5 out of 10
