Daredevil Re-Watch: Shadows in the Glass

The Netflix series The Defenders premieres August 18.  In preparation I’m re-watching all the Netflix shows set in the MCU. First up is season one of Daredevil. Below are 10 thoughts I had while watching episode eight, “Shadows in the Glass.” Spoilers for the entire MCU, but for this episode in particular.


Wilson Fisk in Shadows in the Glass

  1. What kind of person wears the same thing every day by choice? Just more proof that Fisk is not quite all together upstairs.
  2. “It will be difficult to locate another Black Sky. They are extremely rare.” – As if you bad guys don’t always have a plan b.
  3. Fisk knows how to pick and choose his battles. He doesn’t need to start a war with the Japanese when everything is going his way.
  4. Cops should always be able to trust their partner. Unless, of course, both of them are dirty. Then I guess all bets are off.
  5. Here’s where Fisk went wrong. If he hadn’t tried to have Blake killed, Blake wouldn’t have given Matt information on him.
  6. Bernie Walker may have been a jerk, but Bill Fisk was a monster for teaching his son to use violence as a solution to life’s problems.
  7. We get a hint of how dangerous Madame Gao is. If Fisk is smart for pretending not to speak Mandarin and Japanese, Gao is even smarter for recognizing that he does. I guess you don’t get to live to be over 400 years old by being an idiot.
  8. Bill deserved what happened to him for beating on his wife and son. I do feel sorry for young Fisk, though.
  9. I hate how Fisk always seems to be one step ahead of the good guys. It was especially frustrating the first time I watched it. At least now I know what happens at the end of the season.
  10. Poor Ben. He was going to expose Fisk and now it seems like all his hard work was for nothing.
