Marvel’s Daredevil Season 2 Episode 8 Recap | Guilty As Sin

Listen to the Podcast

Listen to the podcast:

“I see you got my message.”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Kevin Mahadeo (@kevmahadeo) dive head first into Marvel’s Daredevil season two episode eight, “Guilty as Sin,” just as soon as they pick their jaws up off the ground after that mindblowing ending.

In the episode, the Avocados at Law talk about everything from the explosive ending of Frank Castle’s trial, to the return of a few fan-favorite characters, to Matt’s choice in the war of his heart, to the various ninja battles, and so much more. Plus, Clancy Brown! Squee! It’s all happening on one of the most jam-packed episodes of season two yet.

A new Daredevil podcast will drop every week day for the remainder of the season, continuing tomorrow with episode nine, “Seven Minutes in Hell.”

    I was very excited for you both to see this episode! I am one episode ahead of you and all I can say is “Yowsa!”

    Clancy Brown from the great short-lived sci-fi show Earth 2! Did you not watch that Josh? It was like Lost in a lot of ways, but with a foreign planet instead of a mysterious island. Clancy Brown played one of the leads and the wonderful Tim Curry had a very memorable recurring role.

    Regarding the Schoonover character, he only appeared in Punisher War Journal #4 from 1989, which doesn’t seem like an important or notable issue in any way, so it’s interesting that they’ve worked this character into the show. The plot of that comic is pretty similar to the story we hear on the show during the trial, especially with the use of “L.Z.” and a note explaining that it means “landing zone.” It’s worth taking a look at after finishing the season because there’s a couple of other plot points that are also present in that issue.

    Not that the previous episodes this season weren’t great, but I think this one really stepped it up to even a higher level than season one; with Stick showing up at the start and Fisk returning at the end, I think it might just be better or at least more exciting than any single episode they’ve done so far.

    When Matt is questioning Frank on the stand and he says “Frank … may I call you Frank?”, I can’t be the only one that saw Frank’s reaction and thought “Oh, he recognizes his voice. He totally knows Matt is Daredevil.”

    No mention of the shot in the courtroom where Frank’s x-ray is being displayed? That is clearly meant to be the Punisher logo.
