The People vs Frank Castle
Going into this season I had plenty of questions as to the structure it was going to go by. The choice to not have a true big bad (at least as of now) was a risky but interesting move, and it's paid off so far. I'm just as invested in the trial of Frank Castle as I am anything Daredevil is doing on the streets at night. That's a tribute to the incredible writing of the show.
Unfortunately for Matt, his job at night and day came in direct conflict with each other as he struggled to balance the two (much like most superheroes). Matt showed up late for the opening statement of the trial, forcing Foggy to step up for the team. He recuperated well after a rough start, but this put another cog in the relationship between Murdock and Nelson. Neither are wrong in this situation and I almost have to side with Foggy. I don't see why Matt couldn't have at least given Foggy a heads up about Elektra. Again, Matt's not wrong either, but you would think he would learn to keep the lying to a minimum.
Really it all comes down to Elektra messing things up for Matt. I don't expect Karen and Matt to break up, but they can't go down this path of lying and avoiding the truth with each other. It never works. On the other hand, I love seeing Elektra and Daredevil out in the field together. The hand to hand combat is consistently immersive and I'm becoming increasingly interested in the mafia that they are after. I'm completely on board with where this is heading.
