Review: 'Penny and Dime' - Daredevil Season 2 Episode 4 (2023)

In this episode, The Punisher is at his peak, Karen eats Ben Urich, and Daredevil dons a new mask. He also very cleverly convinces Brett to arrest him by presenting it as his favor. Well played, Murdoch! More and more below.


In the follow-up scene to the massacre we witnessed in the first episode, members of the Irish mob gather to bury their own people. Finn, an upperclassman from Ireland, played by the always charming Tony Curran, shows up and impresses. His son was also among the dead, and when one of his co-conspirators tried to calm the situation, Finn smashed his eye with an ice pick. Just like a person. His next mission is to hunt down the men who killed his son and stole his money, and the gang begins to move closer to the Punisher's secret lair. Before we switch to the intro, we see Frank watching them leave his hideout. He knew he had been found. And they got his dog back!

After the intro played, we caught Matt getting ready when Karen appeared at the door in all black. The two develop some intimacy as she helps him tie his tie, and Karen reveals that she once helped her brother tie his tie, giving us an insight into Karen's past life. Curiosity was piqued.

We then switch to Matt, Karen and Foggy who were at Grotto's funeral. The sermon is given by fan-favorite Father Rantom, who talks about a deeply flawed man who generously donates to the series in an attempt to redeem himself. As they left the church, Matt stayed to talk to Father Rantom. Matt admits that he feels guilty for failing to prevent Grotto's death and seeks forgiveness for not doing more.

We came back and Frank was busy cutting his own arm and wrapping it in gauze. On the floor next to him was the suitcase full of money he had taken from the Irishman, and his next task was to place it in the back seat of the van. He's on to something, man.

After the funeral, with Nelson and Murdock's crew back at the office, Karen summarizes what she knows about the Punisher to Matt and Foggy, noting in particular that the x-ray of Frank's skull has bullet holes. Karen hinted that maybe there was more to the story and that Reyes might be covering something up. As Foggy goes to answer the phone, Karen and Matt talk about The Punisher, and Karen admits that she's intrigued by the story. When she joked that she might be crazy, Matt said she was empathetic. When Foggy calls Matt to discuss a case, they suddenly discover that Karen has disappeared, taking all the documents with her.

Matt as Daredevil decides he can't wait for Melvin to make him a new mask and heads to his workshop. Melvin knew one of his customers would be impatient, so he got it done and made new and better gloves for him. He also seems to be busy with his own projects, sketching out places we don't quite know and showing Matt new armor hidden under his shirt. What could have been an embarrassing "moment of blindness" for Matt turned into a beautiful little easter egg for us.

So where did Karen go? It turns out she was looking for clues, which led her to George Buck, a nurse who was fired from Metro General. He was on duty when Frank Castle was brought in and told her the story of how Frank basically came back from the dead, himself, despite orders not to revive. When he woke up, he asked George to take him home, which he did, costing him his job.

Next we find Frank looking at the carousel in the park as the music stops, the lights dim and everyone on it goes home. It didn't take long for the Irishman to bring him in. Despite putting up a good fight, killing a few people in the process, Frank is defeated by a dose of tranquilizers and a taser.

Brett was handling the murder scene when Daredevil appeared and asked if the Punisher was responsible. Brett somewhat reluctantly mentions that the Irish are looking for The Punisher. Before Daredevil leaves, Brett gives him a stern talking to, saying that people like Daredevil are part of the problem, they make uniforms meaningless and send the police to hunt crime instead of preventing it. Matt insists they are on the same page. Before takeoff, he received a call on Brett's radio telling him where the scene was where the Punisher had been shot down by the Irish.

Karen breaks into Frank Castle's house after getting the address from a nurse who was fired by Metro General. In subsequent scenes, we see Karen looking around the house spotting any sign of family life. There was a room where a little girl named Lisa once lived, pictures of Frank with his wife, daughter, son and evidence of Frank's military service. Everything remains as it is.

When that happens, we're back with Daredevil, who is now at the scene where the castle was taken. He heard someone who was alive and breathing and dragged himself out there. Matt caught up to him, twisting the man's wrists and trying to wring the information out of him.

Meanwhile, Frank wakes up and comes face to face with Finn. He was tied to a chair and beaten. Finn wants his money back and is willing to pay a lot of pain to get it. Frank doesn't seem concerned, even when Finn drills his feet. But fear not, Frank. Whether you ask for it or not, Daredevil comes and takes out the Night's Watch. Frank actually seems to be taking the torture pretty well until they bring in the dog that Frank saved. When Finn threatens to torture the dogs, Frank relents and tells them where to find money.

Two of Finn's men are then sent to find the money, which is where Frank says it is. Of course there was a trap and he rigged the briefcase full of cash to explode and we saw the whole van set on fire. When Finn hears about it over the phone, Frank pulls out the razor blade he has hidden in his arm (!) and cuts himself. Game time was over and whoever was holding him didn't have a single chance. Before he shot Finn in the face, he unsuccessfully tried to get information about who was present the day his family was killed. As he struggled to escape, Daredevil showed up to help, despite adhering to his no-kill policy.

After the fight, Daredevil helped the Punisher to a nearby cemetery to catch his breath. Frank thinks this could be his goal. Before pulling the trigger, Matt asks what rhyme he's saying. Frank is shocked to hear the news, but finds himself telling Matt the full story of his daughter's favorite book and then the last day of her life. Matt sat down and listened.
Just as Frank finished his story, the police showed up. When Brett goes to arrest Daredevil, he makes him remove the collar to make him look like the one who brought in Frank. Brett agrees and lets Daredevil go (well, how "generous" you are Matt). Daredevil insists that people know the system works.

Matt meets Foggy and Karen at Josie's, where they watch a news report about Frank's arrest. They drank their beers and toasted Brett, who was now a worthy hero. As Foggy went to give them another round, Matt made a move on Karen. Foggy looked at the people in the bar and seemed to be having a good time. As he and Matt went outside, Foggy joked that he should be careful or he might get happy. After Foggy comes home, Karen walks Matt home in the rain and the two kiss outside Matt's apartment. Matt asked Karen if she wanted to go out with him and she said yes. Matt had a big smile on his face when he got home. Well, until he notices someone in his apartment and identifies her as Elektra.

my thoughts

This is easily one of my favorite episodes of the season. Sure, the Irish gang is a bit of a cliché, but I really liked how they were able to hunt down Frank even though he singled them out in the end. It reminds us that even very capable characters like The Punisher (and Daredevil) can behardcapture or injure, but certainly notimpossible.And it reminds us that the people they're all against aren't complete idiots.

Not only is this episode heavy on action—it's intensely painful—it has some of the better character moments of the season. Frank has a great episode (more on that at the end of the post) where Karen steps up her game and really starts to follow in Ben Urich's footsteps - including interviewing people by the sea by the way - and Matt finally takes action on what's starts brewing him and Karen. To the many who claim these two have no chemistry, allow me to disagree. It's nice to see the writers break with comic book tradition and make Foggy relatively happy with Matt and Karen's growing relationship. their love trianglepossibleIt was fun back in the sixties, but we don't need to see it again here.

Matt is thoughtful in this episode. It starts with his scene with Father Rantom where we learn that Matt struggles with guilt and not wanting enough or doing enough. As he talks to Brett, he gets another reminder that the way he fixes the wrongs around him is not without consequences, some of them negative. Knowing that he may be undermining general confidence in the criminal justice system and the credibility of the police, it is clear that he is not to be taken lightly as a lawyer. He very much needs to believe that what he is doing is for the greater good.

I thought the scene where Brett let him go at the end was pretty funny. When Matt, as Daredevil, basically had Brett lie on his police report so he could attribute the Punisher's arrest to him, while clearing him of his own arrest, that was quite a move. He was the one who twisted the system to protect it while fully aware that he couldn't fit into it. I'm not saying he everAtMisleading, but it shows that some of the things Frank had to say to him last episode sunk in. He does not wear a badge and what he does will never be officially recognized.

sensory clock

Not much to say about this episode other than to say that I really liked the scene where Daredevil and the Punisher fight side by side and Daredevil grabs him from behind to stop Frank from killing someone with a hammer. It's a reminder that it's easier to keep an eye on what's going on behind him than the average person. It looks cool.

I think I mentioned the scene where he belatedly discovers Elektra in one of the trailer podcasts. I still think he should have noticed her sooner, but that's all because of her inescapable smell, which I think would be quite noticeable. However, I like that they don't treat Matt's senses as infallible or make it seem like he's always walking into a bright room, figuratively speaking. Listening to certain voices should and does require some active attention, and he is not just there to "see" her. I think this especially applies to his own apartment. In an environment with which he is very familiar, he does not need to focus as much as he does in an unfamiliar environment. Of course, that made it more likely that he would miss something.

ur easter egg

The most obvious thing in this episode is what happened in Melvin's studio. Of course, we know from last season that there are goodies everywhere, including legs of men on stilts! Now it looks like Melvin is working on something that could lead him to Gladiator. I kind of hope they leave this alone, the Melvin character is fine the way he is, but the little tease is perfect. In the episode, we see Melvin show off his new armor to Daredevil, which bears the familiar pattern from the comics. Matt deftly avoids commenting on this, but I highly doubt he knew what he was looking at - or its significance - even if he could see it. This is for fans.

Fader Van Thom:"Guilt can be a good thing. It is a call to action for the soul. A sign that something is wrong. The only way to get out of your mind is to right the wrong and move on until the right is done. I don't know what you didn't do, or that you ought to. What, but fault . . . fault, means your work is not done."

Here's another episode I'll give Frank Castle. Not only is he able to endure absurd pain, which I must admit is impressive, but he also shows a very human side in this episode. He couldn't stand the thought of his dog being tortured and the stories he told Matt about his family broke your heart. There was a time when something very different happened in Frank's life, and it is incredibly sad that he was robbed of that future. Jon Bernthal is brilliant in this role.

    I also like when Matt walks into his apartment and doesn't immediately notice Electra, it shows that they don't see Matt's senses as infallible, or even further - Matt's use of his senses. I figured he'd feel her if he'd been paying attention, but he was having a happy moment and it distracted him. Such a small scene really explained the idea of ​​his two lives.

    I like your take on Daredevil, having Brett arrested. I didn't make the connection between bending the system to protect it and being affected by a little Punisher. I like.

    Warning: This will be a bit of a spoiler for later in the season, but that's not bad for someone who has seen the trailer and made some assumptions.

    It kind of annoys me that Brett is crediting me with the arrest. While it's nice to see him praised for being a good guy, he basically takes bribes, which doesn't fit his honest cop persona. The last time he could catch Fisk, the credit went to DD. Keeping credit when you get something for nothing seems out of place.

    I am happy to confirm my interpretation of the scene with Elektra. Someone said while watching the trailer that they thought she threw a katana sword at him and he caught it in the air but I think he was surprised when he saw her there and took it off the counter and took a knife. Also nice to confirm that it was Karen who snuck into the house.

    I'm glad to see the romance scene and glad they didn't have such an annoying love triangle, at least the Foggy/Karen/Matt version. Elektra/Matt/Karen was inevitable when they announced that Elektra would be in the series. Of course the Matt/Karen romance was doomed because the season was too early.

    I'm glad to see Father Phantom again, although I find his guilt a little strange. I wish he included at least a little bit of "just don't take it too far" because he's a pragmatic guy. (Catholic guilt is a familiar thing.) I was disappointed not to see more of him this season, but not surprised when they crammed a lot of story into the limited episodes. He doesn't really mess with ninjas.

    Agree that this is one of the best in the series.

    That scene in the graveyard was amazing. Bernthal breaks your heart by making you forget that he is a psycho killer.

    This series is really violent. Anyone else noticed? 🙂

    Father Rantom was not enough this season. Anyone else noticed? 🙂

    Matt and Karen. I know I'm repetitive in the way I describe things, but if you think they don't have chemistry, then you don't know what chemistry means. Even standing in the rain, Cox and Wall are on fire together 🙂 Thank God they didn't go the triangle route. I'm making progress here, but it's impressive that when Matt and Elektra show up in these early episodes, it almost overshadows the heat between Matt and Karen.

    I wonder if Matt himself felt Elektra immediately. I think the show does a good job of showing that Matt can lose focus and get distracted easily. In particular, there are some future scenes that show him focusing on one thing and missing others. Or where he is focused, he deliberately blocks out the rest of the world. A big theme throughout the season has been that Matt is not focused on everything he needs to do, but only on what he wants or thinks he needs to do. This is how I read the scene on the second watch. Matt's mind was so focused on Karen that he didn't pay attention to anything when he entered his apartment.

    I've said it before, but I totally agree that Melvin should stay as is. I love the easter eggs we got in his shop, but I really don't want to see a gladiator. The series has more than enough villains to dig into, not least because the Kingpin and The Hand will likely be the main antagonists throughout the series.

    Great plot from top to bottom. 10/10

    I have a Daredevil question...I absolutely love the comments and reviews. I have eaten the back of the blog to catch up now. I grew up with Spider-Man, Stan Lee was a household name to me as a kid, and I certainly enjoyed when Daredevil crossed over into the Spider-Man universe. This made me familiar with the origins of the Kingpin, Electra, Melvin, and Daredevil so when the Netflix series arrives I know what to expect. It exceeded my expectations, mainly because the Spiderman movie was good but could have been better, and the Daredevil movie wasn't that good. So now with Netflix I'm immersed in Daredevil because the show is so good I'm catching up. I read the comic "The Fearless" and loved it. Can you recommend other special Daredevil collections? I predict that Netflix and Marvel will go darker in Season 3 as Matt Murdock battles his sanity. Is there a specific story I can read? thanks for your help.

    From a sensory standpoint, I really like the details of how Matt picks out his suits in this episode, as he has a braille card on each hanger that tells him what color they are. It got me thinking about how he explores the world more broadly, and why he's so careful about keeping spaces tidy and free: the system only works if he hangs up his suit immediately after taking it off. I think the show does a great job of thinking about the little habits and habits that make Matt's life possible, as well as of course he records himself planning his opening credits instead of taking notes. I think they did a really good job of balancing how much he is disabled with how disabled he is
    'Super talented'.

    OMG, Bernthal was amazing in this episode! ! He nailed the Punisher in so many different ways and he's been amazing. They are able to make Frank so compassionate and complex that if his story doesn't touch your heart, I don't know what will. It's really touching. I like how they move beyond the simple fact that Frank kills and Matt doesn't and they end up disliking each other. From here there is mutual respect between the two. They can't see eye to eye, but they can understand where the other is coming from, and I cheer when they team up to escape the Irish mob, especially when Matt stops Frank from killing someone and Frank calls him a choirboy There is a lot of deep phycology here. Matt and Frank are closer than they like to admit, and I'm glad the show is digging into that. I also like the symmetry between Frank and Elektra. Matt does everything he can to save their souls, but Frank goes too far. Just really good character driven storytelling! But it's just such a strong, good episode. It serves as the conclusion of the first arc of the season and sets the stage for the next story. Oh, the wondrous rock! Two thumbs up for Bernthal! Really his good stuff.

    I don't think Matt and Karen have chemistry. At least real chemistry. What I see is that its setting is romantic. You have lights, music, atmosphere - everything you need to create the perfect moment, but no real chemistry or heat.

    The heat on stage is just because Charlie is a very attractive guy. Now compare that to the kitchen kiss in Season 1 or when Claire ties him up. The scenes are bare and raw. There's nothing about it that screams "romantic," but it does. It's white hot. You see two people naked - just hurt and looking for connection. When he said his name to her, it was almost as good as a kiss. It's that feeling that drives the scenes and the chemistry. You can almost feel the need there. There is no light, no rain and no atmosphere to enhance the scene because it is already there. The honesty between Matt and Claire does not exist in the relationship between Karen and Matt because their relationship is fundamentally based on lies.

    When Matt and Claire talk to each other in the hospital later in the season, there's a lingering emotion to their meeting that you can read between the lines and in their body language. Claire is as gentle as ever, but Matt is cold and distant. He puts up an emotional wall as if she wants to open a wound there.

    My complaint this season is that even in episodes where she doesn't need to be there is too much Karen Page and very little Claire, I think she's great as always and really deserves an episode or two to shine.

    A very simple, very cool and very accurate description of chemistry point of view in the above post.. amazing.. if it exists, then of course it is also obvious.. I like it..

    But let's at least try not to (unknowingly) put words in other people's mouths. Understanding that when it comes to basic emotions and instincts, it can be a tricky thing to control what we listen to so it doesn't become too vague.

    Granted, he initially made a bit of a gross overgeneralization..."don't know which is which" based on the status of a single relationship...but...

    The poor guy has only been mentioned here once (though it's still just a thing to repeat), and has every right to do so (though agree that a less explicit pardon and more discretion would be best).

    He said "even when" standing in the rain...without mentioning the lights, music, atmosphere (actually should start there) etc...Cox is the same person in both...let's remember these are actually actors (and very skilled ones at that), so things may not always play out as they seem, and that's usually on purpose..

    (Oh oh..those love triangles right?)

    (On a lighter note... oops, I remember making lists of who would fit in who was in class on San Valentino's Day early in grade school... so hey, guess what is other than crazy human nature... emphasis on constructive criticism)

    Anyway, I really like your take on the subject. Dawson is apt and kind (Mick Jagger's lips and more). The same goes for everyone else. holy cow, even more so than the episode itself, I think.. especially the exclamation point after "dog!" laugh out loud..

    easy to read

    Now.. "Girls!" .. who else and how many were injured ..
