* Right from the start, Matt unleashes the devil on a pack of sex-slaver scum. The NoHoldsBarredBeatdown of Turk Barrett at the end of the fight is [[PayEvilUntoEvil satisfying]].

Added DiffLines:

%%* Matt's fight with Stick, while mostly a Tearjerker, has some awesome moments that deserve mention


* Matt calling out and pointing out all of the holes in Frank's ideology. How he takes the law into his hands, never giving anyone a chance to reform.
* Frank, in turn, [[JerkassHasAPoint pointing out the major flaw in Matt's methods]], [[CardboardPrison the simple fact that they allow scum to keep hurting innocents where Frank's ways stop them for good.]] In fact, he has a comeback to everything Matt says, (albeit some of it just being mockery) up until the point where DD ultimately finds him beyond reasoning, and calls him insane. [[BerserkButton Frank, at this point is equally fed up with him,]] and [[TalkToTheFist takes him out with a]] WrenchWhack.

** The same has been done with ThePunisher. Commonly viewed as nothing more than a one-dimensional action hero that is impossible to sympathize with, the excellent writing and Creator/JonBernthal's portrayal have completely reversed the perception of the character. And unlike Daredevil, who has always been a beloved character within the comics community, the Punisher has often been snubbed by comic fans for the last twenty years with his titles being low sellers. His appearance on ''Daredevil'' is not only winning the general audience over, it appears to be winning the comic community over as well.

** To give an idea about how excited people are to see Creator/JonBernthal's excellent performance as Frank Castle again: During the New York Comic Con after the ''Series/IronFist'' panel Jeph Loeb had the lights dimmed after a few seconds only two words were heard in the darkness: ''One Batch'' As the crowd went absolutely nuts!!! As Bernthal himself walked on stage.

* Creator/VincentDOnofrio's performance as Wilson Fisk has been rightfully singled out as a terrifying yet complex and sympathetic portrayal of a classic villain. Fisk has long been one of Marvel's greatest villains and it's wonderful to see him portrayed with such perfection. In general, when it comes to live-action comic villain adaptations, the praise for his performance (and character writing) has probably only been rivaled by Creator/HeathLedger's [[Film/TheDarkKnight Joker]] and Creator/DavidTennant's [[Series/JessicaJones Kilgrave]]. In fact, when the casting calls for season 3 went out, Fisk was the first character outside of Matt, Karen and Foggy to be confirmed to be returning.

Added DiffLines:

* Karen willingly using herself as bait to draw Bullseye's attention toward her so that all the innocent people in the church can escape.


* Brett Mahoney finally gets a real moment to shine when he refuses to even let Fisk have a final goodbye with Vanessa, simply noting he didn't let Nadeem and his wife have one.

-->'''Foggy:''' Okay, so you get these whatever-you-call-thems when you're a kid. How do you go from that to what you're doing now?\\
'''Matt:''' When I was a kid, before the accident...I'd lay awake at night listening to the sirens. I liked to put stories to them. Trying to figure out what they were for, ambulance or cops, robbery or fire. I don't know, just a stupid game. But after I lost my sight, after my abilities developed, I realized how many sirens there actually were...how much this city suffered every single night.\\
'''Foggy:''' You've been running around doing this since you were a kid?\\
'''Matt:''' No. I...I tried not to fight...to make my dad proud. To...to block it out. The sirens, the pain, the fear, all strangling Hell's Kitchen. For years, I buried my head and turned away. Then one night, right after we quit Landman & Zack...I heard it.\\
'''Foggy:''' Heard what?\\
'''Matt:''' A little girl. Crying in her bed, in a building down the block. Her father liked to go to her room late at night...when his wife was asleep.\\
'''Foggy:''' [''horrified''] Oh, Jesus.\\

* Matt and Elektra's plan to steal the Roxxon ledger is pretty clever, Matt uses ContrivedClumsiness by bumping into Gibson and spilling wine on him(him being blind helps sell it) and then beating up him and his guards in the bathroom(to clean off the spilled wine) to steal the keycard for the office, Elektra then puts the security cameras on a loop so they won't be detected, and Matt uses his powers to find the ledger's hidden location behind a secret door(which Elektra is visibly impressed by). They then avoid getting caught once Hirochi disocvers Gibson and knocked-out guards by pretending to be a drunk couple about to have sex(Matt's blindness again coming in handy when a guard shines a flashlight in his eyes to see if he's drunk), allowing them to walk away cleanly.

** Matt’s entry into the fight with his BigDamnHeroes rescue of saving Foggy from being impaled with Dexters baton. This is especially impressive when one remembers that Dexter has been shown to throughs things such as staplers, paper clips and etc with enough strength and speed that they do almost the same damage a bullet would do and Matt catches the baton almost effortlessly.
