After a man is murdered in a bowling alley, Nelson and Murdock are hired to defend the murderer. But they begin to learn that the man who hired them has more pull in how this trial goes than they ever could.
Like the last episode, this didn’t have a lot of action but, unlike the previous show, it had a lot of story which was well-written and very thrilling as the episode continued on. Actually, this acts as a sort of “Law & Order with Superheroes” and I enjoyed this type of legal thriller, even if ultimately the episode was just to show that Nelson and Murdock have any power in this corrupt system. In times when the system of law and order itself is corrupted, this is exactly when vigilanteism is called for…I’m not trying to make a political statement.
I really like this slow buildup to the main villain, and we finally learn his name. If your a longtime reader of Marvel comics you might privately be going “heck yeah!” when you hear it but I think most of us probably know him by a much more famous name, and won’t know what this really means until later.
+10: A huge step up from the last episode, hopefully this slow build leads to something great
