TV Review: Daredevil S3E11 Reunion
Dex tries to run his prey to ground, Nadeem’s conscience kicks in, and Fisk looks to recover a gift from Vanessa seized during his incarceration.
The episode is one of tension as the corrupt FBI surround the Church and attempt to track down Matt and Karen for the Kingpin.
It’s an interesting episode of cat and mouse and there really is a question as to if they’ll be found and if the FBI agents will be found out.
Those involved are interesting as the game becomes more complex. There is an issue with the plot and you do have to suspend disbelief as things get a little convoluted. Witnesses contradict the FBI, the FBI contradict the witnesses and no one is raising a stink about that?
But, the episode does help in making Nadeem have an actual spine and guts something he’s missed for most of the season. The conclusion with how Foggy resolves everything and gets Karen out safely is actually inspired as well bringing together a lot of the various plots.
But that has issues too in that it exposes the FBI’s corruption. The NYPD isn’t going to step in at all and deal with that? It seems like something that’s just dropped.
Then there’s the ending of the episode which is a little odd in how it’s presented. Kingpin steps forward and suddenly everyone believes him? The crowd being won over is rather quick and a bit awkward but that seems to fit the season.
It’s a nice bridge episode as we move towards the end game and there’s solid tension. It continues the solid latter half of the season.
Overall Rating: 7.45
