Daredevil recap: Season 3, Episode 11, “Reunion”, Aired on Oct. 19th, 2018

Warning: full spoilers will follow…

In the wake of Dex’s assault on the church, Matt and Karen are in hiding with the FBI on the hunt for the two of them. Fisk is finally a free man as the Justice Department drops all charges against him and he wastes little time on getting back to where he was before he went to prison.

Fisk’s key weapon is instilling fear in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen. Remember that moment in Season 1 where he slammed a dude’s head off with a car door? “Give me your jacket” he says to an FBI agent and he proceeds to beat him to death with the jacket to bury his screams. DAMN! Vincent D’Onofrio relishes in Fisk’s newly-won freedom, as underhanded as it was.

The press conference he had where he names Daredevil as public enemy #1 with an audience that abhors him has a lot of political parallels that evoke a certain president who causes strife and division in his country’s people. It was handled very well. There’s also a beat where Fisk pays a visit to Esther Falb, who bought the painting that he, and Vanessa, bonded over.

After spending much of the season on the outs, Matt’s stubbornness towards Karen, Foggy and to an extent, Sister Maggie can only go so far. Sister Maggie throws the FBI off their trail, subconsciously, she’s got a lot to make up for lying to Matt since they’ve met. Foggy came through to keep Karen out of custody, with an assist from Nadeem and Detective Mahoney. Nadeem has undergone a metamorphosis, he became a man who’ll have to sacrifice everything to clean up the mess he helped make.

By the episode’s end, Nadeem’s house is under attack by FBI agents on Fisk’s payroll. Daredevil swoops in to help out and he reveals his identity to him.

The band is back together as they’ve gained a new ally to help them stop Fisk for good.

My fandom is multifaceted—I watch every Marvel live-action property (film and television alike) as well as DC's lineup. 'Daredevil' Season 1 made me take the leap into reading comics. I also have an affinity for strong, well-written female characters. I also love prestige series such as 'Game of Thrones', 'The Wire', 'Better Call Saul' and 'Atlanta'. When I'm not writing or watching Netflix, I'm a massive gamer and my PS4 is so worth two hours of my day.
