117 thoughts I had while watching the final four episodes of 'Daredevil'
We’re in the home stretch, guys! This is my final recap for this season of “Daredevil.” If you’re just joining in, you can head over here to read my thoughts on the previous episodes: Part One, Part Two, and Part Three.
With “Daredevil” eschewing the traditional format of television by releasing the entire first season at once, recapping becomes a bit tricky. Binge-watch the entire series in one go and I risk spoiling everything and being stoned in the digital streets. But binge-watch too slowly and I become that person who discovered “Breaking Bad” in the last season.
Luckily “Daredevil” has already been picked up for a second season, so we’ll get to go on this binge journey together again in 2016!
Episode 10 - “Nelson v. Murdock”

#1. Matt Murdock is just as surprised to discover he’s still alive as I am.
#2. Don’t peel off the bandage! What the hell do you think is under there, spiders? Nope! Still just your gaping wound you refuse to let heal.
#3. I feel like “Are you really blind?” is a valid question Foggy, but not the most pressing one.
#4. Great. Now “Drops of Jupiter” is going to be stuck in my head all day.
#5. Foggy is learning to speak Punjabi. I feel like this is relevant to the plot later.
#6. “I think he’s some kind of ninja,” is such a insane sounding yet probable answer.
#7. Don’t be ridiculous Foggy. There’s no room on Daredevil’s costume for a phone.
#8. Gao referred to Nobu in the present tense. I saw that, subtitles.
#9. Ben and his wife’s little ritual of greeting is heartbreaking and adorable.
#10. Much like Timmy Turner, Matt gets everything from “The Internet”
#11. Foggy is taking this like a spouse discovering a secret double life and I’m kind of loving it. This betrayal is complete with Meet-Cute flashbacks! Platonic love is real, y’all.
#12. Just waiting for one of Murdock’s ex-girlfriends’ to show up as a villain.
#13. Foggy does a killer Yoda impression.
#14. Converse sneakers have never been so menacing.
#15. Damn Ben, be less terrifying when you emerge from the shadows bearing gifts or you’re gonna end up shot.
#16. Karen’s ham-fisted attempt at nursing home subterfuge somehow fools Ben. I’m half expecting her parents to own it.
#17. Trying to appeal to Leland’s humanity is a bold, but futile move Fisk.
#18. Foggy’s Lawful Goodness is gonna get on my nerves real quick.
#19. Of course the boys had plastic dinosaurs on their intern desks, the dorks.
#20. Really interested in whatever Karen’s backstory is. What river of shit was she swimming in?
#21. Oh good, we’re using the sexual trauma of a little girl to further the protagonist’s journey. This isn’t a trope that’s overused and problematic or anything. **stares into the camera like I’m on “The Office”**
#22. Who is this gorgeous old lady? Whoever she is, I hope I look that elegant when I’m her age.
#23. OH MY GOD, of course it’s Fisk’s mom and not Karen’s grandma. Way to seriously red herring me, writers.
#24. I bet $5 that wine is drugged. Leland and Gao are taking care of it all right. And “it” is Vanessa.
#25. Poor random rich casualties. Their families will cry themselves to sleep on a pile of inheritance money.
#26. Oh no, are the boys are gonna get a divorce!?
