* MythologyGag: In what might be the darkest example for the series, Frank proceeds to ram Russo's head into a mirror on the carousel, leaving him horrifically scarred, but alive. Fans of the comics will know that Billy Russo was a hitman who was horrifically scarred after trying to assassinate Frank for the mob, leading to his comics alias Jigsaw. Those who started with following the MCU will notice a similarity to Brock Rumlow's unwitting metamorphosis into Crossbones at the end of ''Film/CaptainAmericaWinterSoldier'' (later confirmed in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'').

** A season-long one; Frank started off the series under a new identity, a construction worker named "Pete Castiglione". The CIA gives him back this identity at the end of this episode.



* EarnYourHappyEnding: You might be surprised to see this trope associated with ''The Punisher'', but that's exactly what Frank and Micro get. While Frank is still officially at large, the CIA and Homeland Security have purged his fingerprints and DNA from the country's criminal databases and set him up with a new identity as "Peter Castiglione", and he begins attending Curtis support group, allowing him the chance to begin the road to recovery. Meanwhile, Micro finally gets to go back to his family, allowing them all to finally begin healing.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: Russo has one after a stray bullet hits him in the ''cheek''.


* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Billy dismisses killing Afghans as nothing wrong, claiming that ''they always did that among themselves''.
* PutDownYourGunAndStepAway: Billy threatens to kill two teenagers if Frank doesn't put down his gun. True to the trope (and against all real-life training), Frank does so, and is shot (in the vest) twice. It was only Madani's appearance that gave Frank an opening to bull rush him.

to:

* PillowPistol: Like [[Recap/ThePunisher2017S01E06TheJudasGoat before]], Curtis instinctively reaches for the gun under his pillow when he realizes Russo is in his bedroom, but Russo has already taken the gun.

Added DiffLines:
