The second season of Daredevil on Netflix holds one my favorite scenes in TV history. And yes, I know Dardevil is a superhero crime drama, but don’t get hung up on that if you really want to enjoy life. In episode 11, called “.380,” Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) talks to Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) in an empty diner about, “people that hurt you,” and how they’re the most important people in your life.
SPOILER WARNING! If you haven’t watched season two of Daredevil yet, turn around and come back when you have.
Like most good stories, the lead up to this scene is everything. Up to this point Castle has been on a rampage, killing criminals because he has had everything important to him taken away during a drug deal gone bad. His wife and child were murdered at the hands of drug dealers and crooked cops. In their wake he’s cleaning up the streets in the only way a crazed, ex-special forces soldier would.
I’ve watched this clip over and over again and can’t seem to shake it.
