“Dark Arts” continues as both Daredevil and Matt Murdock begin investigating the demonic painting made from the blood of hundreds of victims. In trouble at work for abandoning his post to help Blindspot, Murdock finds himself with a new assignment from the District Attorney – shut down the publicity of the painting which a greedy douche is using to line his own pockets. Although Murdock agrees with the concept of stopping the spread of the evil art, he is concerned with where his orders are coming from and begins to second guess his choice to join the D.A.’s office.

daredevil-2-2015-blindspot

Daredevil #10 kicks off a new arc with Daredevil‘s protege Blindspot being lured in to an unusual murder scene which contains a wall-sized painting done in blood. Someone is obviously playing with the two heroes, but why? And what’s the broader significance of the painting itself, purposefully left for Daredevil and Blindspot to find?

daredevil-2016-9-hong-kong

The follow-up to last month’s issue of Matt Murdock‘s gambling adventures in Macau features a Far East team-up between Daredevil and Spider-Man. Given his trust of Daredevil (because of the unexplained memory wipe Daredevil performed on everyone who knew his secret identity which Spider-Man can sense but not explain), Spidey does have some concerns about what his fellow vigilante is after in Macau and Hong Kong. However, that doesn’t stop the fun the two have together performing a heist and then chasing the plunder Daredevil has spent a considerable amount of effort to retrieve.

Someone is screwing with Elektra and Daredevil. Learning the fact that Elektra is searching for a missing daughter that might be his leads Matt Murdock to question everything. When the entire affair turns out to be a web of lies meant only to hurt Daredevil through Elektra it’s obvious we have a new (or perhaps old) villain in play.

For the first time since Matt Murdock reset reality to hide his dual identity, both the lawyer and Daredevil have run-ins with Elektra. Murdock’s evening with his ex in a dive bar goes far better than the vigilante’s as Elektra proceeds to hold nothing back while beating Daredevil bloody (unaware who is under the mask).

daredevil-kinbaku-2

“Kinbaku” kicks off the second arc of Daredevil‘s Second Season with the introduction of Matt Murdock‘s (Charlie Cox) college girlfriend Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung) who is in need of a lawyer (or so she claims). From their reunion in Matt’s apartment it’s obvious the pair didn’t part on the best of terms (as the flashbacks will prove). For what Elektra is really after, however, we’ll have to wait a little further into the season because Elektra hasn’t come looking for Matt Murdock, exactly, but for Daredevil.

daredevil-penny-and-dime

“New York’s Finest” and “Penny and Dime” wrap-up the initial arc of Daredevil‘s Second Season. Opening with Daredevil (Charlie Cox) held captive by the Punisher (Jon Bernthal) on the roof of a tenement building, “New York’s Finest” is mostly a debate between the two heroes. Given the fallout with Grotto (McCaleb Burnett), and the District Attorney’s threat to throw Nelson & Murdock under the bus for the failed sting, Karen (Deborah Ann Woll) will be motivated to do some digging into the past of both District Attorney Reyes (Michelle Hurd) and Frank Castle which will eventually lead the legal assistant into a new career when Nelson & Mudrock implodes (again). Concern for his missing partner will lead Foggy (Elden Henson) to reach out to Claire (Rosario Dawson, who has a much smaller role this season).

In both as a vigilante and in his new role as an Assistant District Attorney, Daredevil continues to take on the new gang leader Tenfingers whose control over his followers is explained in the new series’ second issue. Suffering a loss in the courtroom when Tenfingers’ agents manage to get to the state’s star witness is nothing compared to the trouble Daredevil steps in at the end of the issue when The Hand shows up to take back the power Tenfingers stole from them.

daredevil-nelson-v-murdock-3

The temporary split between law partners and best friends begins here as Foggy (Elden Henson) discovers Matt‘s (Charlie Cox) brutalized body along with the number of secrets his friend has been keeping from him for years. Interspersed with flashbacks showing us various stages of the pair’s friendship from their first meeting as college roommates to the discussion of Matt’s Greek girlfriend to going into business together, “Nelson v. Murdock” paints a picture of a strong bond which is immediately shattered because of Matt Murdock’s lies (not just about his work as a vigilante but the larger lie about the true aspects of his blindness). The split is, of course, temporary, but it does allow each character to work towards taking down Fisk separately while eventually providing Matt another confidant he isn’t forced to hide his abilities from any longer.

daredevil-speak-of-the-devil

“Speak of the Devil” begins with one of the season’s better fight sequences which will be quickly interrupted by flashbacks and later returned to near the end of the episode. Maneuvered into place by the Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio), Nobu (Peter Shinkoda) sets a trap for Daredevil (Charlie Cox) not realizing that Fisk plans on taking out both thorns in his side in one fell swoop. The episode is also notable for the only time Matt Murdock (unmasked, as himself) and Wilson Fisk share a conversation which will lead Matt to the dark realization that the would-be Kingpin of crime needs to die.
