Some construction workers drive a nice car. There is no understanding and insight into the characters. Frank Castle won’t go to a PTSD support group. This was not exciting or innovative. There is no cultural leadership. Frank Castle has no openness or engagement. An ICE agent lurks. This is not efficacious.
This is very slow. Frank Castle has no good judgement. The satisfaction score on this ep is low. Frank Castle has no approachability or courteousness. Frank Castle tries lifestyle modification and ethical behaviour. It doesn’t last. But for a brief while, Frank Castle does seem to have abandoned anger-retaliation. Some dude has callous disregard. I cannot ascertain the point of this.
Frank Castle is pitied and happiness is unachievable for him. People think The Punisher is dead. People feel ill-will. Nobody provokes retaliation in Castle until they do. Castle is not socially adept. Idiots rob a mafia poker game and things go awry.

“I would have helped you do it.”
“Take this fake leg off and beat you to death with it.”
There is violence and Matt’s friend Foggy lurks. Isn’t Hell’s Kitchen now full of hipsters? There is exposition. Karen Page (it’s Jessica from ‘True Blood’) is an irritating murder suspect. Ill-thought out things happen. Matt does what he think must be done. His high-risk engagements don’t seem to achieve anything. The annoying Karen Page has stumbled across something dodgy, she tosses her fried hair. Karen is an idiot.
A group of baddies hang out and a big bad lurks unseen. Matt fights a guy and the fight goes out a window. Matt has flashbacks to his dad. There is a fight in the rain. The fights go on and on and on and on and on. Where and when did a blind man learn to fight like an MMA champion? There is no Daily Bugle. The big bad plots. Blind people pack drugs. Was Karen Page drugged? How? By who? Why doesn’t Matt tell Foggy what he gets up to? Matt and Foggy have a cheap door sign. There is mumbling about money and men and drugs and crime and dangling plots. This was overhyped.

Rabbit In A Snowstorm
There is plotting, dumb courtroom antics and Karen goes to see Ben. What about Matt’s bleeding wound he shrugs off? Matt makes the hardcase murderer blubber and name Fisk as the big bad. The hardcase is so scared of Fisk that he slams his head into a conveniently lurking shard of metal. Fat Fisk lurks. This was dull.
“Sacrament of penance.”
“Heard he retired.”

“Running low on sympathy.”
Why does everyone in Gotham get emotional satisfaction from heading in a psychopathic direction? Selina smart mouths. There is bad acting. Bruce wants to fix Alfred’s dramatic loss of confidence with a sappy speech. Bruce has no trustworthiness and reliability. Bruce is a rude brat who barely utters competent dialogue. Bruce has no caring attitude to Alfred.
Selina and Poison Ivy fight in boring fashion. Lee is a little bitch. Sofia is covetous. Poison Ivy is into elite bashing. Lee is dethroned. I despise all these characters forever. Riddler cracks up; nobody cares about him and his rages. Bruce sees it as his rightful entitlement to have Alfred wait on him. This was rancid. Alfred needs a life of his own.
The students are introduced. Marion is an aborigine? There is an assault. Miranda is wild. Marion points out the school isn’t a real finishing school. Then why is she there then? The cast pose like they’re in a music video. Mrs Appleyard goes on about Mount Diogenes and hygiene and maladies flourishing in the dark. Sara is not allowed on the picnic. People mutter annoyingly.
What does Miranda know about Mrs Appleyard? Sara self harms. Mrs Appleyard looks orange. The 3 popular girls (Miranda, Marion and Irma) are mean. There is staring and a posh boy. This was not good at all. There is weirdness and Edith screams. What happened on the Rock? Mrs Appleyard is increasingly hostile. Why was this so bad?!?
