Case Not Closed
Well, Fisk made his memorable return this week as he set up Punisher to take care of one of his in prison issues in exchange for a man who could lead Frank to more information on his family's murders. Using the first 10 minutes of the episode to catch us up on how Fisk is doing in prison was nice and it definitely felt like the right time. With that said, this episode was mostly used to show the audience that every character is inching ever closer to where they want to be.
Fisk has apparently built a following in the prison enough to get guards to release Frank Castle all together. I would assume we will eventually see Fisk return as the main "big bad", but seeing him in a supporting role and pulling the strings from inside a cell was fitting. Castle had the moment of the episode when killing a dozen or so inmates with mostly just his fists. That's somebody you don't mess with. So ultimately, it was a short stint for Punisher in prison and I'm assuming it will stay that way for the remainder of the season.
It also seems as if it's the end of Nelson and Murdock's law firm (for now). Matt pushed Foggy away and vice versa for the same old reasons and I can't help but agree with the decision. Right now, Matt needs to focus on fighting off the Hand and what they have cooking up in those warehouse basements. It also seems as though the team of Elektra and Daredevil has come to a close for the time being.
Overall, it was nice seeing each of the characters creep closer to their goals. I like seeing Karen look further into the mysterious Frank Castle situation and Daredevil digging further into the Hand. Just as I'm getting closer and closer into the finale as well.
