Ben comes by to visit. Ben, Matt, Karen and Foggy all want to bring down Fisk. Ben suggests following the money trail. Global Confed is the company where Fisk gets most of his money, as far as the public knows. Matt suggests researching Global Confed and see what they find out. Matt wants to keep Foggy and Karen busy so they safe and away from his secret life. He wants their help but he wants them to stay safe as well.
Fisk and Wesley hold another secret meeting. His public opinion is soaring. There is another matter that’s more serious. Wesley reports that Hoffman is in the wind. They need to find him to assure he won’t tell the truth about killing Blake. Nobu appears, upset and ready to kill. He wants the area of Hell’s Kitchen that was promised to him. Fisk reports that the ‘Man In the Black Mask’ has made things difficult. Fisk suggests that Nobu send a ‘specialist’ to handle the masked vigilante. Nobu knows just who to send.
Karen and Foggy were able to ID the men that attacked them. They work for Westmeyer-Holt Contracting, owned by Global Confed. Of course, both men are gone. Foggy surprises Matt with a sign he made for the firm. He assures Matt that their small firm will make a difference. The mood is darkened by a phone call. Mrs. Cardenas is dead. The police suspect she was killed by a junkie seen lurking around her apartment. Foggy and Karen are devastated, Matt is fueled by revenge.
He finally finds the thug who killed Mrs. Cardenas. Matt had to beat up a lot of thugs to find the right one. It’s a lowly junkie who doesn’t know who hired him but he knows they paid him at the docks by Pier 81. Matt beats him to a bloody pulp and gives him a chance to save his life. He’s never taken a life and doesn’t want to start now. If the thug doesn’t turn himself in to the police, Matt will come back and finish him off.
He then leaves to the address the junkie gave him. A red ninja appears, It’s Nobu. Killing Mrs. Cardenas was a trap to lure Matt there. Nobu and Matt fight, both are skilled fighters. It’s hard to say who’ll survive the encounter. Matt manages to kill Nobu, barely surviving the fight. Fisk and Wesley appear to finish Matt off. He escapes and heads back to his apartment. Foggy is there hoping to talk to Matt. Instead, he finds the ‘Man In the Black Mask.’ The masked man collapses in front of Matt. Foggy decides now is the time for answers as he peels off the mask.
This was a well rounded episode. There was plenty of emotional drama. Karen and Foggy were devastated to lose their friend. They felt guilty by advising her not to take the money, instead she should fight to keep her home. There was another great, emotional scene as Matt talked to a priest, Father Lantom. The priest warned Matt that he didn’t have to kill Fisk but wanted to. Father. Lantom is an interesting character and I hope to see more of him.
It also appears Foggy is about to learn Matt’s secret. This whole time, Foggy has seen the ‘Man In the Black Mask’ as a threat. He has no idea that his best friend is the same person he’s feared. I wonder how he’ll respond. Matt had his reasons for keeping Foggy in the dark. It’s close to the end of the season. It’ll be suspenseful to see how this scene plays out. Will Foggy keep Matt’s secret or will he tell Karen and Ben?
