Maybe Melvin will also make the suit a bit more red. ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' and the ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'' movie have demonstrated that a bright red superhero suit CAN look good in live action. While Matt will probably not go for candy-apple red, it will probably more like a slightly less maroon version of the season 2 suit. Perhaps we will also see Matt finally get the interlocking D's, which might encourage people to actually call him Daredevil instead of The Devil of Hell's Kitchen.

As this was the only cliffhanger that was LeftHanging due to the show's cancelling, and in the event that it may remain so, [[RealityEnsues it's safe to assume that Poindexter ended up dying quick from the skeletal experiments he had went through. An AntiClimax, yes, but a clinically accurate one.

to:

* Jossed, he actually tells Foggy first and Foggy spills the beans to Karen almost immediately.




to:

* Confirmed




to:

* Confirmed in the last episode.




to:

* Partial Confirm/Partial Joss. They do, at least plan to, reopen Nelson and Murdock with a third wheel but it's Karen and not Marci (as Marci has her own job that she doesn't intend to leave).




to:

* Confirmed, though it's only really done to shine a bigger light onto Fisk and to light a fire under Tower's ass.




to:

* Confirmed, though it's FBI Agent by Day, Stalker by Night.




to:

* It's never openly Confirmed or Jossed whether Foggy let Marci in on the secret (Matt and Marci never share any screentime in Season 3).




to:

* Jossed, neither of those things happen.




to:

* Confirmed...though he breaks his nose a fair bit anyway throughout the years.




to:

* Confirmed, Bullseye kills him as Lantom performs a HeroicSacrifice to save Karen.




to:

* Jossed, though Fisk tried his damndest to make it a reality.




to:

* Jossed, they don't meet face to face again until the finale when Fisk is long out of prison.


Added DiffLines:

* Confirmed, she lives and Lantom dies in her place, literally.






to:

** Kinda Confirmed? He does ultimately leave the firm but he does remain with them for quite a while in-universe and really only leaves to rejoin with Matt rather than anything else.



*Confirmed, through giving Matt more clients for his solo practice...though he also ends up getting him to meet Jessica which leads to his whole "death" so...help is debatable.



*Confirmed, it ends up becoming a big plot point of the season.



* Confirmed in Season 3.



* Confirmed outright.



* Jossed. No other hero shows up and only Elektra (in its first scenes) and Jessica Jones (in a throwaway joke in the last scene) are mentioned the entire season.



* Jossed, the Hand take no part whatsoever.



* Jossed, never shows up.



* This one is a more complicated answer. He sowed the seed to go after Foggy for a long time prior to even getting out of prison (through putting his family's butchery under a very long game loan trap) but he didn't pull the trigger until after going for Matt (who he went for at the first available opportunity by throwing him under the bus as an accomplice). Confirmed or Jossed depending on your own interpretation.




to:

* Confirmed.




to:

* Confirmed, she does spill the beans on killing Wesley to Foggy, Matt and Fisk.




to:

* Confirmed, she's nowhere to be found.




to:

* Confirmed if nothing else on a platonic level as all secrets were laid bare.




to:

* Jossed, the only attempt to give Matt a new suit was just a ploy by Fisk that Matt saw through. He stays with his Season 1 outfit the entire way through.

[[WMG: Karen will NOT die in season 3.]]
At this point, even a lot of non-comic readers know Karen was killed by Bullseye in the comics since there have been numerous conversations about this all across the net since season 1. People expect it so much, it will turn into a NotHisSled moment. Perhaps Foggy or sister Maggie will die in her place?


[[WMG: Frank Castle was resurrected by The Hand]]
When Karen tracks down the nurse that tended to Frank Castle, he describes Frank "dying, for like a minute, and then his heart just kickstarted again and just wouldn't stop." He also mentions that people in suits pulled for the DNR forms to be pushed through. At first, it sounds like TheMenInBlack from the government, but the nurse never really confirms that, aside from the mention of ear pieces, which isn't that solid.

Now jump over to ''Series/IronFist2017'' (and the end of season 2 of ''Daredevil'', with the Hand appearing in full force, and being introduced as a primary ''Daredevil'' antagonist). The Hand's resurrection process is explained more fully. Unlike what we saw with Elektra, the process can be administered before death, and causes the subject to become more aggressive, less predictable and more violent. This is the case with Harold Meachum; he was given the 'gift' of being able to return from the dead, courtesy of Madame Gao and The Hand. Madame Gao mentions that it is a gift that has only been given to a precious few. After the resurrection from Ward stabbing him, Harold is a lot more unstable and a lot more violent, killing Kyle when the guy just asks for vanilla ice cream instead of a gourmet flavor, and throwing a glass to the floor when Joy refuses to drink with him, etc.

It gives the impression that Frank Castle had been resurrected by the Hand. Watching him a second time, he comes off as very much like Harold. As an aside, all of his target gangs (cartel, Dogs of Hell, Kitchen Irish) were either enemies of Wilson Fisk or other upstarts looking to take Fisk's place, at a time when the Hand was still trying to do whatever they were trying to do with Madame Gao's super-heroin, and probably didn't want any other competition. From a planning perspective, Frank would have had the dual effect of not forcing the Hand to reveal themselves in force to destroy their enemies, and potentially discrediting Daredevil/masked vigilantism and turning the legal system against him more fully as a general response as well; and all without any hint of their own involvement. Frank would just appear to be carrying out his vendetta. And it explains why he goes after the Blacksmith following his escape: the Blacksmith's crew are rivals of the Hand as well, competing with them in the drug trade. And it explains why the Hand don't start operating out in the open (the hospital attack, kidnapping Karen) until after Frank is initially arrested.

Also worth noting: at Frank's trial, during "Semper Fidelis," Dr. Gregory Tepper says in his Elektra-coerced testimony that he altered the original medical reports about Frank and his family at the threat of unknown persons who threatened Tepper and his own family. That sounds a lot like the Hand's M.O., as there wouldn't possibly be anyone else with an interest like that in Frank and that kind of inclination to violence with the money to have run of a whole hospital wing. (It's also appropriate if this turns out to be the case, since on a thematic level, "Semper Fidelis" also sets up Matt and Elektra's first real confrontation with the Hand.)

A third thing worth noting is that Frank seems to have a superhuman level of endurance for pain and heals faster than the average person. In "Penny and Dime," Finn Cooley drilled through his foot. That's a pretty serious injury, and even though he did spend some time in the hospital after his arrest, Frank didn't even have a cast on that foot during his trial, and not once after that is he shown limping or having any trouble walking.

It reads of the possibility that when the Blacksmith, in his final moments, mentioned that they won't let go of whatever happened in Kandahar, he's talking about Frank having a run-in with the Hand while he fought in the special forces. Meaning Frank, like Harold, has the 'gift' of resurrection. It also explains his "I'm already dead" line to Karen's "You do this, you're dead to me!" right before he kills the Blacksmith: he is already dead because he's died and come back to life many times before. This also would be a nice nod to how in the comics, he made a deal with the devil in Vietnam.

** Jossed with the release of Series/ThePunisher - Schoonover was talking about Operation Cerberus and all the nasty shit they did, including the murder of Ahmad Zubair and smuggling heroin back to America in dead soldiers' corpses. No sign of the Hand anywhere.

[[WMG: Matt will fight Fisk in prison.]]
Matt's eventual confrontation with Fisk will be in prison where they will have a cell brawl. No mask. No weapons. Just two men beating the crap out of each other.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: Matt will get arrested and have his alter ego exposed.]]
In the latest teaser, we see a glimpse of Matt in regular clothes being led down a prison corridor and a prisoner reaches out to grab him. Maybe his identity of Daredevil gets released and he is subsequently arrested. The prisoner who grabbed him is probably looking for some payback, as are everyone else in prison. While he is in plain clothes, he could be getting led to a holding cell where he will be given a prison uniform and await trial. In the comics, he goes to prison for a while and faces off against the Kingpin while there.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG:[[SacrificialLion Father Lantom will be killed by either Bullseye or the Kingpin.]]]]
So that the stakes can be raised for Matt's most personal battle in season 3.





They two were flirting quite a bit in the first season and there was a time in the comics when they were together. Now that Matt is believed dead, Karen and Foggy will find solace in each other.

* Bullseye has yet to appear but with him teased for so long and Season Three being more or less confirmed to be ''Born Again'' (an arc that featured Fisk dressing a mental patient up in Daredevil's costume at one point), this will be the perfect opportunity to introduce Bullseye and have him wear the suit. In fact, there was a different story in the comics in which Bullseye dressed up as Daredevil and started killing people so it works within the mythos.

* In the original ''Born Again'' storyline, Captain America had a guest appearance to help Matt out against Nuke. While Captain America obviously exists in the MCU, it doesn't seem likely that Chris Evans will be showing up anytime soon. So, assuming any other heroes show up at all, who would it be?
** '''Jessica Jones''': If Nuke shows up in season 3, then Jessica might show up too, in order to take him down. After all, Nuke first showed up in her series and she has a personal beef with him.
*** Jossed at least in terms of Nuke's involvement. He is dead as of the second season of ''Series/JessicaJones''.
** '''The Punisher''': Frank and Matt already have a history and Frank could easily fill the role of Cap, being a military man himself.
** '''Danny Rand''': At the end of The Defenders, Danny seemed driven to take up the mantle of New York vigilante in honor of Matt. If there's an impostor Daredevil running around as there was in the original Born Again storyline, he might show up to take down the villain. Or he might think Matt himself is an impostor.
** '''Steve Rogers''': In a super surprising move, Chris Evans himself turns up anyway. After the events of ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', Steve is no longer Captain America, but he might show up in plain clothes to lend a hand.
** '''Elektra''': If Matt survived, there's a chance she did as well. With the rumor that Bullseye will show up in season three, we might get to see that famous Elektra/Bullseye rivalry on the small screen.
** '''Luke Cage''': Foggy is currently Luke's lawyer and a bit of a friend. If he is in trouble, Luke might come to his rescue. Unless his inheriting of Harlem's Paradise has rendered him more likely to be on the side of the criminals.

[[WMG: Matt will get his nose broken.]]
In the season 3 teaser, we see dried blood coming from both of Matt's nostrils. Upon closer inspection, Matt seems to have a white bandage or gauze under his mask around the nose area. This is because either Bullseye or Fisk broke his nose in battle.
