Gotham S03E14 "The Gentle Art of Making Enemies" Recap


Gotham is in darkness after the power outage Jerome caused by blowing up the power plant. The GCPD is overrun with criminals that the police officers are attempting to arrest and keep under control.

Oswald arrives with his henchmen at the warehouse Ed had called to say he was being held captive at. Ed is indeed waiting there and kills all of Oswald's henchmen. He then reveals Isabella's destroyed car to inform Oswald of the fact that he knows Oswald was responsible for her death.

Kathryn and a Court member discuss the ongoings of the destruction in the city and the member advises her to give the GCPD a chance. She remains skeptical of his faith in "him."

The lights will not come back on in the city until the following morning and Jim and Harvey must determine what Jerome's next move will be. Through backtracking the conversations he had with Lee, they realise that he will be going after Bruce Wayne.

Ed ties Oswald to Isabella's car and forces him to confess his role in killing Isabella. Oswald does so and claims to have done it for love. Ed them puts a cauldron of corrosive acid onto a giant ice block so that it will kill Oswald once the ice melts.

Jerome and his followers attack Bruce and Alfred at Wayne manor and destroy his owl statue. Jerome takes Bruce for himself while ordering his followers to kill Alfred. Jim arrives in time to save Alfred and kills the followers. Jerome has taken Bruce to a boardwalk circus where Gotham citizens are being used as game attractions to entertain Jerome's followers. Jerome is more deranged than ever and kills one of his followers for the blood which he smears on Bruce's mouth into a clown-smile.

Oswald breaks free with the help of a police officer but is taken captive once again by Butch and Tabitha upon returning to Dahl Manor.

Jerome ties Bruce to a post and declares what's about to happen as the closing event. He has loaded up a canon with a cannonball plus some knives for good measure so that Bruce will be killed in a boom. Jim, Alfred, and Harvey arrive to save Bruce and fight off Jerome's followers while Jerome lights the fuse on the cannon. Bruce is able to free himself at the last second and runs away while being pursued by Jerome.

Barbara tells a captive Oswald that the only way he can escape and live is to call Ed, which will result in Ed's death. Oswald then decides that love means being willing to sacrifice oneself if it comes to such extremities and understands that he denied Ed his happiness by killing Isabella. Oswald declares that he will die in order to save Ed. It's then that Ed appears and declares that Oswald was supposed to die proving that he isn't capable of loving anyone but is now shaken by the twist development in his scheme.

Bruce runs into a house of mirrors, followed by Jerome. When the two finally encounter one another, they begin to fight in one of the mirrored hallways. Bruce is eventually able to gain the upper hand and beat Jerome, even disfiguring him in the scuffle. Jerome taunts Bruce and tries to get him to kill him with a shard of glass but Bruce decides not to kill him, and leaves the house of mirrors to reunited with Alfred. Jerome comes chasing after him and tries to attack Bruce once more but Jim stops him and knocks off Jerome's stapled-on face in the encounter. Jerome is arrested and returned to Arkham Asylum with his face having been reattached.

Bruce tells Alfred about his battle with Jerome and that sparing him instead of killing him felt like justice. Alfred instructs Bruce on having a code of ethics and Bruce makes a vow not to kill in his quest for justice.

Kathryn speaks with Five, who has been brainwashed to do her bidding. Five is concerned but a Court member says that he will go with someone to join them, adding that "no one refuses the Court". The man then visits Jim and is revealed to be his uncle Frank Gordon, the man who wore the ring.

Ed takes Oswald to the harbor docks, intent on killing him. Oswald begs him to spare his life, adding that he was the one that created Ed into the person he now is, adding that he still loves him. Ed shoots him in the stomach and throws his body into the harbour.

Gotham airs on Mondays on FOX at 9/8c.

Marvel's Daredevil S02E12 "The Dark at the End of the Tunnel" Recap


In a flashback we see a young Elektra being trained by Stick at a school of sorts where kids are trained to be assassins. She is a quick study and full of fury. During a training session, Stick must stop the young Elektra from killing one of her older training partners. She is reprimanded for nearly killing someone that is on their unified side. Stick is trying to tame her propensity for killing and have it be channeled as a weapon to be used in the coming war.

In the present, Elektra has reached Stick and the two fight with full intent that it will be to death. Elektra is furious that Stick sent an assassin to kill her. It seems as if she'll win the fight but then Matt arrives and stops her. Stick laments not being able to "tame" Elektra, who is more determined than ever to stop "just another old man jealous" of his disciples. The fight is broken up by the arrival of the Hand, as they kidnap Stick and disappear into the night. Elektra is still angry at Matt for stopping her from killing Stick and he implores her to think of the bigger picture and how they need to figure out what the Hand are up to and why they didn't just kill Stick. Elektra doesn't want to fight a war she doesn't see herself apart of and doesn't understand why Matt wants to save a man that abandoned him. Now Matt and Elektra will both be on quests to find Stick but Elektra warns Matt that if he gets in her way again of killing Stick, she will kill him too.

Karen is advised by police to head home. They've sent the police that were supposed to protect her to work traffic, which Karen feels guilty about since she was the one that snuck out to meet Frank. The police believe that he is finally dead and Karen seems to believe this to be true.

Matt and Foggy meet at their office. They're still set to part ways professionally but Matt decides to tell Foggy about his search for The Hand, though he leaves a lot of the details about. Matt thinks they might be using the subway tunnels but Foggy advises him to look for the abandoned railway tunnels instead. Foggy's grandfather was a bootlegger that used them for smuggling and the city had abandoned these tunnels due to it being to costly and risky to try to deal with them more directly. Matt is thankful to Foggy for this useful help and the two are able to be cordial with one another despite being about to separate.

Karen considers dropping her investigative piece into Frank Castle but her editor pushes her to see everything through. She had originally planned on writing an expose but she decides to shift her angle by making it a profile piece instead to show the world that Frank Castle was more than just the Punisher. The next step is speaking to someone that knew him outside of that world so she decides to reach to his former Marine commander Ray Schoonover, who had testified on his behalf during the trial.

Matt dons his Daredevil suit and goes on the hunt in the abandoned railway tunnels. He gets into a scuffle with a member of the Hand and is able to follow the assailant using his enhanced abilities.

Karen pays a visit to Schoonover, who is happy to help her with her piece. He shares tidbits about Frank, such as a song he sang from a kid's TV show that his daughter loved and his knack for impressions. Karen opens up about how Frank is suspected to be dead in the explosion the previous night but stops talking when she spots a particular photo on the wall. In it, Schoonover and Frank are posing with an injured comrade that Karen recognises as one of the dead bodies pulled out of the explosion. The man was one of the Blacksmith's henchmen. Karen tries to leave, having realised that Schoonover is the Blacksmith but he forces her to stay at gunpoint.

Matt tracks down the Hand to their lair where they have Stick captive and are torturing him. Stick knows Matt is there and talks to him from where he's being beat, since Matt has enhanced hearing. Stick advises him to track the men he is fighting using their breaths instead of their heartbeats, which allows him to more effectively defeat them. Matt finally reaches Stick who is badly injured from the torture but still tells Matt he's proud of him. Just as Matt is prepared to escort stick out, Elektra emerges, more ready than ever to kill Stick. The argument is interrupted by Nobu emerging from the shadows.

In another flashback, we see young Elektra confronted by the older boy she almost killed in training. She tries to apologise but he attacks her with a knife so she beats him again and slits his throat. The boy's trainer wants Stick to kill Elektra for being too dangerous and out of control but Stick kills the man instead.

Nobu asks Elektra if she knows who the Hand serves and she responds that they serve the Black Sky. Nobu then reveals that Elektra is the Black Sky. She is horrified by this revelation, as Stick knew all along and lied to her about it. Matt implores her to understand that she still has a choice and doesn't have to go down this dark path. Elektra is shaken by the men in the Hand kneeling before her and swearing to serve her. Elektra orders Matt to leave her to embrace her destiny. He refuses to leave her and wants her to make her own destiny. Stick then attacks members of the Hand and Elektra fights her way out and escapes with Stick, leaving Matt to fight the rest of them off.

Schoonover forces Karen to drive into the woods and orders her to pull over but before she can do, a truck crashes into them, with the brunt of the damage being on Schoonover's side of the car. Karen wakes after being knocked out from the accident. She gets out of the car and observes the damage and realises that Frank is alive and has forced Schoonover deeper into the woods. Schoonover is chiding Frank for not joining him when he had the chance. Karen catches up to them and implores Frank he doesn't have to kill him. She offers to help Frank get the answers he is after and says that if he kills Schoonover she will be done with him. He pulls Schoonover into a cabin and shuts the door behind him, leaving Karen outside. Frank shoots him in the head and Karen is devastated. Frank finds a back room in the cabin filled with an artillery of military-grade weaponry with all sorts of guns and some tactical body armor too. The implication is clear that this will be his starting supply as the Punisher best known to comic fans.

Elektra stops with Stick in a corridor, where he says that Matt knew that killing him would be the point of no return for her and that Matt still believes she's worth saving. He advises her to earn that, which is probably just a ploy to keep himself alive but sound advice regardless.  Matt continues to fight off more members of the Hand and must finally fight Nobu once again which ends with Nobu being thrown over a high ledge but he is still alive and tells the remaining Hand members that Daredevil must die.

Marvel's Daredevil is available for streaming on Netflix.

Emerald City S01E05 Recap: Everybody Lies

Dorothy wakes riding a horse, with a bag on her head. Shes brought through the city, to West. West looks her over, wondering if shes a good witch or a bad one.

Lady Ev arrives with her father and tin man with much fanfare. She notes that the Wizard wants sometihng. Her father takes a notice of Jack. He's indentured to her for the price of his metal.

The Wizard's guard, Eamonn returns home with Liam, and the girl. His daughter is surprised to see him, and Liam is suspicious. Eamonn knew him once. He was once a great soldier. All Liam knows is that he was found in limbo, and left for dead. Eamonn is sure that he did not betray the other soldiers. He urges Liam to stay put while he looks into things, and then he falls over from his wounds.

Ojo tells West that Dorothy is the one that killed her sister, and he wants what she promised him. He wants his wife free. West tells him that her magic can do many things, and she will return him his wife tomorrow. She sends him away. West tells Dorothy that it really doesn't matter if shes a good or bad witch. West thinks Dorothy is lying when she says that she isn't a witch. She tells West to look into her bag. West finds the gun, holding it on Dorothy. West isn't easily loved, and Dorothy murdered the only person able to love her. She pullst he trigger, but lucky for Dorothy, West had dropped the magazine, and theres not a bullet in the gun. Feeling lied to, West cold cocks Dorothy.

The Wizard proposes a toast to August, but really to himself. He pats himself on the back for his vanquishing of the Beast. He needs the Kingdom of Evs help to build weapons and kill the beast. Lady Ev asks about expert council surrounding the Wizard. Anna tells her account of the signs, but Elizabeth is clearly against her. Lady Ev toys with their emotions, goading them all.

West contacts her sister, and tells her that she has their sister's killer. Glinda wants her to wait, but West is a bit impulsive. West yells at Tipp, and Tipp gives West a little bit of insight, which West appreciates. She upgrades Tipp's status, and tells another girl Miranda to take over her former duties.

Miranda heads to check on Dorothy, who is trying to get free. Miranda doesn't try to hide the sewer entrance, but she does drive the glass Dorothy was attempting to reach into her foot.

Liam is surprised by the little girl. She tells him that Dorothy is near. He asks how she knows, she knows by her heart.

West pays Dorothy a little visit. When Dorothy rises to attack her, West uses her powers to restrain her. West wants answers before Glinda arrives. She wants to know what her sister was planning on coming to tell her before she died. Dorothy doesn't know. West asks about K. Chapman, but Dorothy doesn't know much about her either. She was her mother, and that is all she knows. West is surprised she knows nothing about her mother. Her own mother birthed all the witches of Oz, and still she knew her. She muses how awful she must be for her mother to throw her away. When Dorothy falls to the ground, the gauntlets appear. West tries to take her sister's gauntlet, but they react against her.

The Wizard asks if he can count on August to assist him. August wants his dog back. He died, maybe last year, and he wants him back. The Wizard heads straight to Lady Ev. He asks how long shes been ruling. She doesn't remember when the beast last came. The Wizard saved Oz, but he left her kingdom to drown, her mother to die. She wants nothing more than to see Emerald City and the Wizard himself destroyed. When the beast returns all her dreams will come true.

Dorothy tries to escape with no luck. Dorothy pleas with Tipp for help. Tipp tells her that she doesn't recognize her. Dorothy helped Tipp when she had nothing to gain from it. Tipp isn't grateful, she blames Dorothy for what happened. She does what she wishes Dorothy had done and walks away.

Liam and Sylvie go walking though the city, in search of Dorothy.

Its not too long before Dorothy gets company, someones she least expects, her mother. Dorothy is a smart girl, and surely, she sees right through West's disguise. Dorothy wants to believe her mother. She tells her that if she just tells West what she knows about her sister's death then she'll let them both go. She shares her memories with her “mother.” Once satisfied, West slaps her and leaves.

Lady Ev orders Jack about. Jack doesn't want to play with his crazy masked mistress anymore. He wants to know what she wants of him. She wants a friend, but she doesn't know how to be one. He puts it in simple terms, by earning it. She wonders if a festival could be the start of their friendship.

Eamonn goes tot he Wizard with his story of Dorothy felling him. He's unsure of the magic she used on him. The Wizard looks at the bullet that was removed from Eamonn's body.

Tipp changed her mind about helping Dorothy. She doesn't want to be responsible for someone else's death. Miranda catches the pair as Dorothy prepares to leave. She's more than happy to turn them in to West, after she kills them.

Glinda finally arrives. She wants to know about Dorothy, and how long she's had her. Glinda claims to harbor no secrets from West. She claims that she hadn't seen East in years, which West is surprised to hear. Miranda is the only one in the room. Glinda leaves in a huff. Miranda blames it all on Tipp, but West doesn't believe her. She tosses Miranda's dead body down the sewer.

Jack tells Lady Ev that he's sorry about her father, but Lady Ev isn't. She asks if this is what it feel like to be normal, but she won't reveal why she wears masks until they're friends.

The Wizard comes to Anna gleefully. He shows her the bullet. It is something that can kill the beast forever, and really give them something to celebrate.

Dorothy makes it to the festival, where she dons a mask and disappears into the crowd.

Liam and Sylvie are finally discovered. Some Wizard guard close in on him. He draws his sword on them. One claims that they tried to get a peek into his box, and he cut down 10 until he was stopped. Sylvie runs back to him. He realizes that hes done a lot of bad things. He asks her to let him go, to do no magic and let him go.

Lady Ev reaches for Jack's hand as they continue their walk. Some hoodlums come to grab Lady Ev's mask. Jack steps in to defend her, but gets roughed up until he remembers that he's a tin man now. He takes down all her attackers, and Lady Ev looks at him differently. He wonders if shes scared of him, but shes not. She kisses him. He tells her that friends don't do that. She decides she wants to do something else.

Elizabeth shows West the day that her sister died. West has seen all she wants to see.

The Guards take Liam to Eamonn. He tells him to release him, but Liam doesn't want to be released. He commited the crime, and he wants to pay for it.

Ojo comes for his wife, he wants what West promised him. She has not intentions of making good on her promise. Everyone lies.

Toto finds Sylvie.


Dorothy slips into the Wizard's palace. Gun drawn she looks around the Wizard's room, and finds things are not what they seem. Pink Floyd plays on the walkman. Dorothy realizes that they are from the same world, and the Wizard reveals that he knows her.

Grimm S06E04 Recap: El Cuegle

Renard is a little shocked to see Meisner. He doesn't think he's real, but Meisner doesn't think it relly matters, and he's not going to leave just because he's asked to. Renard reaches out to touch Meisner, and finds him to be very solid. Renard gets a call from Black Claw, and they're not really happy about Renard stepping down. Renard explains that it was a spell, turning his back on Meisner. Meisner disappears.

Diana is in a little bit of shock over what happened. She's not really happy about Nick impersonating her daddy. Everyone tells her that Nick had to pretend to be Renard for a little while, to do what he couldn't, but he's better now. Diana wants to see her dad, but they tell her its time for them to stay with Nick for awhile, so Kelly can see his dad. Diana notices Rosalee, or more accurately, her stomach. She announces to everyone that not only is Rosalee pregnant, but that she's having multiples.

Someone is looking up new babies on the internet, and he settles on one. The new parents are a little photo crazy about their baby. When night hits, the baby's cries wake up the parents, and the mother, Haley goes to check on the baby. The man has the baby in his hands. He wolgs into a El Cuegle and knocks the mother down. Her husband rushes in and she tells him that a man stole their baby.

In the tunnels, Eve explores. Diana, Adalind, and Kelly return to Nick's loft. Diana asks where her room is. Adalind explains they have a little less space. Diana looks at the ground sadly. A lot of people died in their home. She wants to see her daddy. Adalind promises her daughter that she will take her to see her dad tomorrow. Eve hears everyone upstairs. Nick goes over the shocking events. Diana has abilities that not even Adalind or Renard understand. They have to protect her. Eve starts up the ladder to the surface until she hears Nick confess that he was going crazy without Adalind. Her emotions are starting to get to her, and she goes back down with the stick in her sights.

Nick makes his triumphant return to the precinct to a little bit of fanfare, but Renard isn't planning on letting he, Wu or Hank bask too long. Renard wants to make things clear. He's in charge. Metals aren't coming forthwith. The trio leave, but Meisner is there. Renard fully argues with Meisner, but he's not really there. Renard is really just having a full fledged freak out. Meisner is just playing on his guilty conscious.

Wu goes over the case details, and the monster baby snatcher. Haley is distraught as she recounts the baby snatching. She's a little combative in her panic, but she eventually gets to the monster part of the story. The husband is upset, thinking that his wife hit her head and hallucinated the suspect's description. While Haley draws the suspect, Nick and Hank take Paul to where Auggie disappeared. Paul thinks Haley is a little obsessive, but really she's just a new mom.

Meanwhile the El Cuegle is having a few issues of his own, and poor little Auggie is left crying. He wolgs, taking the baby into his arms, and calms him before turning back into himself. He knows the baby is sick, and plans on getting the baby medicine.

Eve makes the decision to uncover the stick.

Nick looks over Haley's online account. He notices that she does post a lot about the baby, and every post is tagged with their location, likely how the baby was found. Wu brings over more similar cases. Nick stands up, and is instantly dizzy, as Eve touches the stick. It wounds her hand, obviously warning her off.

Hank and Nick do a little research at the Spice Shoppe to find its suspect. They find their wesen, and Monroe wants to stop the baby eating bastard.

The El Cuegle shops for some baby medication, while having a PTSD flashback and seizure. He involuntarily wolgs as a store clerk steps in to help the fallen man. The monster runs out of the store.

Hank and Nick see that similarities in the monster cases. Wu tells the that there has been a sighting.

Rosalee asks Monroe the hard question. How will can they stay in Portland, near Nick. They've been through a lot. She never wanted the white picket fence, never knew she wanted it. And now that she has it, she can't lose it. Monroe completely understands her feelings. They can't live their lives in fear, they have to live prepared.

Hank, Wu and Nick look over the security footage. He only took infant medicine. The clerk thinks it may have been a mask. A look at his getaway, shows his car plate, and its clear enough they can trace it.

Eve is still in pain the the tunnel. Her zap from the stick has turned into a symbol. She puts the stick away, and begins to carve on the wall with a rock.

Adalind makes good on her word, and takes Diana to her dads. She promises to pick up her daughter the following day, or when she's ready. Renard informs both of them that he's moving because he won't be mayor. When Adalind leaves, Diana asks why Renard doesn't love Adalind. He claims that its Nick's fault. Diana notes that Adalind said he'd say that. Renard tells her that he loves her, and Diana is satisfied. Everyone loves each other in a way.

Hank wonders why the El Cuegle wolgs at all. Something doesn't add up. He isn't stealing adult medicine. Nick notes that baby Auggie was a little sick before he was snatched. But Hank questions why he would heal the baby before eating him. Wu comes back with information on the rental car, and the men prepare to rescue the baby. The El Cuegle wolgs and attacks. Nick and Hank finally get him down and cuffed. The baby is fine, as the El Cuegle tells them not to take the baby.

At Renard's, Diana does a little cooking by magic. He laughs that it must be fun being her. Renard asks what happened to his friend Bonaparte. Diana tells him that he killed him. She tells him that he did it because he hurt mommy, and men shouldn't hurt mommy. Renard tells his daughter that she doesn't always have to protect everyone, that she could come to him, like if Nick ever hurt her mother. She tells him that Nick would be very sorry.

Haley is overjoyed to get her son back, even if Paul doesn't believe her. Nick and Hank head back to talk with their suspect. He asks about the baby. The El Cuegle doesn't do what he does because he wants to, but because he has to. He gets visions about children who do monstrous things. He sees the past, present and future. Auggie will do horrible things if he grows up. His parents marriage will fall apart, and he will murder them with he turns 19. Hank doesn't plan on letting him go. The El Cuegle begs them to look at another case that he didn't follow through on. The baby grew up to kill 10 people just last year. He begs them to let him stop the monster before its too late. Hank looks over the case of Kenneth Slater as El Cuegle asked, and Nick thinks that he is actually telling the truth. In the interrogation room, El Cuegle's vision hit him harder. Auggie kills his parents as they beg him not to. El Ceugle froths at the mouth in a seizure. The guard comes to to check on him, and he wolgs, knocking the officer out. Hank uncovers the information he needs. El Cuegle was near where Kenneth was. He's telling the truth.

Haley coos over her baby, happy that he's been returned. Paul wants her to see a psychiatrist, to talk about what she saw. Nick calls the parents and warns them that their son's kidnapper may be coming after them. Paul goes to lock the windows, but its too late, El Cuegle is there. He knocks out Paul, as Haley runs up the stairs with the baby. Hank and Nick arrive in time to save Haley and Auggie. He's killed in the process, saying the bears as he dies.

Eve continues her tunnel art.


Paul continues to fight with Haley about being crazy. Nick tries to intervene, but Paul doesn't let up.

Marvel's Daredevil S02E11 ".380" Recap


The Hand begins to infiltrate the hospital that has the rescued patients in it. Though Matt is able to save Claire from being harmed, all of the patients act as if under some sort of trance and willingly leave with the Hand.

Karen gives a false statement about the attack on the officers assigned to protect her as well as the shoot-out on her apartment. She leaves out the detail that Castle was present and saved her from certain death. Matt confronts her as she's leaving the station for not asking for his help in the matter and she discretely lets him know about Castle saving her during the shoot-out. She is determined to prove that Castle didn't kill Reyes and that someone is setting them up. Castle believes he can find the culprit faster than the NYPD and Karen agrees. Matt wants to help Karen and protect her but she declines his offer. Karen goes to stay at a hotel and her police protection check her room first. After they leave, she sneaks downstairs and meets Castle who is waiting with her car that he stole to meet her.

Marci visits Foggy in the hospital and offers him a potential job offer down the line, saying that the work he did on the Castle case made waves. He doesn't explicitly accept but doesn't decline either.

Autopsies are performed on the dead Hand members from the hospital attack and find that at least one of them has scars that indicate a prior autopsy. The hospital board is insistent about covering this up and one board member seems inclined to try to put the blame of everything that happened on Claire. Refusing to let the hospital prioritise their funding over truth and justice, Claire quits her job.

Karen and Frank Castle have a sit-down in a diner and have an honest conversation about who thy are and what they are doing. Frank says that Karen loves Matt and should hold on to what she cherishes because he would give anything to be reunited with his family. She also believes his entire story and his innocence in relation to the death of his family. Frank tells Karen to go to the back and hide with the waitress. The men that are after Karen had driven around the block three times and have now pulled up so Frank is ready to confront them himself.

Matt (as Daredevil) confronts Tower and muscles a lead out of him. The one piece of information they have that's useful related to the Blacksmith is a competitor they had that works out of Chinatown. Daredevil follows that lead there and finds Madame Gao, one of Fisk's allies seen previously in season one. Matt wants to know where to find the Blacksmith and after a bit of tiptoeing, she directs him to a particular pier.

The Blacksmith's men that are after Karen enter the diner which is now empty in the main area except for Frank. A vicious fight breaks out that ends with Frank brutally overpowering the men, killing one, and relentlessly beating the other until they reveal the Blacksmith's location after which Frank kills him. Karen is horrified by the violence and Frank tells her to get to protective custody and stay away from him.

Frank heads to the same pier Matt was directed to and attacks a boat used to smuggle drugs. He tries to kill a man that is insistent in claiming to be the Blacksmith but Daredevil arrives in time to stop him and says that the man is lying and only pretending to be the Blacksmith. When Frank attacks Daredevil for interfering and not minding his business, the man speaks on a walkie talkie to signal that Frank is there and that whomever he is talking to should get back to the boat. Frank and Daredevil's fight is interrupted by the return of Blacksmith's men who attack the boat and set off an explosion. Frank is able to escape in the commotion.

Stick receives the news that the hitman he ordered was unsuccessful in killing Elektra so he decides that he must be the one to fight her himself. Elektra reveals herself by mortally wounding the men that had just delivered the news to Stick, just as they were leaving the location of the meet.

Karen arrives at the boat and is emotional at there being more destruction and perhaps also, Frank's potential further injury or even death.

Claire is leaving the hospital at the same time as Foggy being discharged and advises him to let Matt know that she won't be around to help him anymore.

The patients from the hospital are back at the hideout of the Hand and willingly let members of the Hand slit their wrists to drain them of the chemicals in their blood to be fueled into an ancient device, with its purpose being yet unknown.

Matt hears a strange noise outside and a car crashes outside of his apartment building. Inside the car is the men Elektra injured before and the driver uses his dying breaths to tell Matt that Elektra found Stick and warns of the impending showdown between the two. Stick is shown to be sharpening his blade while Elektra descends the steps and makes her way towards him. She tells him they need to talk but by the looks of the blades in both of their hands, there's no way this talk won't be anything less than an epic fight.

Marvel's Daredevil is available for streaming on Netflix.

‘Shadowhunters’ Announces the Highly Anticipated Casting of Will Tudor as Sebastian

‘SHADOWHUNTERS’ ANNOUNCES THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED CASTING
OF WILL TUDOR AS SEBASTIAN

Internet rumors have been circling for months on who would play the role of Sebastian in the Freeform original series “Shadowhunters” and it was announced today that actor Will Tudor (“Game of Thrones”) has been cast in the role. Tudor will be a recurring guest star in the later half of the second season slated to air later in 2017. All-new episodes of “Shadowhunters” air on MONDAYS at 8:00 – 9:00 p.m. EST.

Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series “The Mortal Instruments” by Cassandra Clare, “Shadowhunters” follows Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is, but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. Now thrown into the world of living among faeries, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and demon hunting, Clary must rely on Shadowhunters Jace, Isabelle and Alec to navigate this new dark world with her best friend, Simon, in tow.

Nothing is as it seems, including her close family friend Luke, who turned out to be a werewolf, as well as the enigmatic warlock Magnus Bane, who has surprisingly become an ally in the search for Clary’s past.

“Shadowhunters” is produced by Constantin Film and executive produced by Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, McG, Michael Reisz, Matt Hastings, Mary Viola, Martin Moszkowicz and Robert Kulzer. The series stars Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland, Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis, Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood, Matthew Daddario as Alec Lightwood, Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway and Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane.
