Daredevil season 3 must be not only my favorite season - Yeah it’s even better than the first one, which was already super awesome – but the best superhero series I've ever seen. No, I am not exagerating. It’s my humble opinion but I really think it is something you don’t see often.
Daredevil season 3 starts shortly after the events of the defenders. Matt stays hidden in the church while his friend Foggy thinks he's dead, because he’s like « if he was alive, he wouldn’t let us think he’s dead » that’s his theory. Not cool Matt, not cool. Karen still thinks he’s coming back and kept paying his rent while he was gone. Enough said, let’s talk about the character that makes this series really, really good. Wilson Fisk, the King Pin. He very cleverly slowly but surely, gets the FBI in his pocket. He's one villain that I absolutely loved watching, all the way. I sometimes even rooted for him.
About the characters, this is a show that manage to give us characters we love in masterpiece of a story.
Foggy is the best
From the first season, Foggy was my favorite and he still is. What I like about him is that he’s the best friend you could ever have. And the actor, Elden Henson does a great job portraying him. He is the best friend we all want to have and sometimes Matt, and even Karen for that matter do not deserve him. They pull some stuns on him. And he's always right there to help.
Matt Murdock, a superhero but a shitty friend
Matt Murdock is an asshole to Foggy. He lets him believe he’s dead. He shows up and he’s being a huge jerk to him and steal his lawyer card and use it to enter the prison. Come on Matt ! That was really shitty things to do.
Karen page, who knows what’s going on this head of hers
Karen, I don’t know how I feel about her. I love the actress who portrayes her, Deborah Ann Woll. The character has incredibly fascinating scenes but sometimes the choices she makes or made in the past are very questionable. But they couldn’t have chosen a better actress to portray her. She’s amazing in that role.
The Evil Daredevil
This character story arc was so fascinating to see. Agent Poindexter portrayed by Wilson Bethel who I liked in Hart of Dixie, which was a completely different role. He plays an FBI agent who is not very stable, to say the least. Fisk takes advantage of his weakness and send him dressed as the Daredevil to present the daredevil as the number one enemy of the town and show himself as a victim of the daredevil in front of the public eye. Bethel makes the character seem scary, disturbed but sympathetic at the same time. It was a very compelling character who you sometimes felt sympathy and compassion for.
Fisk and Vanessa, the love story of the show
Without Fisk played by Vincent D’Onofrio, this show is not at it best and I saw it in season 2 when he wasn’t there for the most part. Here, he’s the one running the show and it’s an absolute delight to watch. Vanessa only comes towards the end, but I love their creepy relationship. He wants to keep the violent crime stuff from her. Which is normal. But she’s like “I want to be like you”. Yeah, she wants all in, the blood, the death and all that. I loved this scene when he tells her he doesn’t know if their relationship is real or if it’s just in his own head. That was intense. Yeah, it’s not always the good guys that find love.
Great scene after great scene
This season is packed up with incredibly good stuff. One great scene after another. You’re hooked, you’re surprised, you’re chocked. This season is amazing. Most of the characters are amazing. I loved agent Nadeem. I loved agent Pointdexter or Bullseye. The actors were great and their story arc was amazingly told. The action scenes almost made you feel the pain of the characters. I was making a weird face through most of them. I can’t say enough about it and how much I loved it. It is memorable and I’m gonna see it again some day.
Conclusion : This season is sooo goood !!
Daredevil season 3 is the best superhero season ever. It’s an absolute must-see. But You might say, « I’m not that into superhero stuff, or comic books or whatever ». Let me tell you this. If you like good stories. Greatly portrayed characters, a little bit of action you can only love this. And to be honest, you don’t even have to see the first 2 season to see this one. It stands completely on its own even if it follows the events of the previous seasons. Anyway, I hope you go check it out. And if you've already seen it, tell me in the comments what you liked or didn’t like about it.
