Go To

Grieving for the life he's abandoned, Matt suffers a crisis of faith. Fisk make a deal with the FBI that turns him into a target.

  • Blasphemous Boast: Matt.
    Matt: I’m Daredevil. Not even God can stop that now.
  • Call-Back: The scene prior to the explosion with Fisk giving his speech in the van seems very reminiscent of the scene of him riding in the van in the Season 1 finale.
  • Call to Agriculture: Foggy is considering abandoning Hogarth & Associates to return to the family business at Nelson's Meats.

  • Chekhov's Gunman: Karen is sent to intervew a reality TV star and socialite, which turns out to be the same woman saved by Matt in the previous episode.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Still not being in top shape, Matt has no problems using an electroshock weapon.
  • Flashback: Several are shown with Matt as a child.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Fisk almost lets his get the better of him after he's attacked in prison.
  • Jump Scare: Fisk just finished his calm monologue to Nadeem about his love to Vanessa when the whole street suddenly gets shaken by an explosion as the Albanians attack the convoy.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Dex executes two Albanians who were already surrendering. It's hard to feel sorry for them, as they previously also mercilessly gunned down dozens of agents.
  • Kingpin in His Gym: As per usual, we see the Trope Namer doing this early in the episode.

  • Internal Reveal: Karen gets evidence Matt is alive from talking to Neda about the kidnapping attempt against her father.
  • Lesser of Two Evils: DA Blake Tower and the police commissioner are initially unwilling to broker a deal with Fisk. Nadeem then convinces them that the crackdown on the Albanians has saved numerous lives and it will save more in the future. He concedes that Fisk is a piece of crap, but thinks that the results will be worth it.
  • Love Is a Weakness: Wilson Fisk concedes that his love for Vanessa is a weakness, but he is not willing to give it up either.
  • Made of Iron: Fisk barely shows any reaction after being shanked.
  • Not So Different: Neda initially refuses to talk to Karen, as she has had bad experiences with reporters slandering her. After Karen opens up about being slandered herself about the death of her brother, she agrees to talk to her.

  • One-Man Army: Dex, with some Mook Horror Show thrown in for good measure. He absolutely slaughters all the Albanians that previously killed an entire FBI unit.
  • Police Brutality: Dex executes two surrendering Albanian mobsters.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Fisk refrains from killing the inmate that shanked him, presumably because he doesn't want to endanger his deal.
  • Quit Your Whining: Matt continues to get speeches to this effect from Maggie.
  • The Stool Pigeon: The word is out on Fisk being a snitch, thus it isn't safe anymore in prison for him.
  • Tempting Fate: This line by Matt towards the end of the episode:
    Matt: I'm Daredevil. Not even God can stop that now.
  • Vulnerable Convoy: Fisk's convoy gets ambushed by the Albanians, leaving most agents dead and Fisk only surviving due to Dex's timely interference.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Stewart Finney and the Valdez Brothers, the cronies Fisk made back in Season 2, are nowhere to be seen.
