And it’s finally sinking into Murdock’s thick skull that he needs armor. This is the second episode that mentions it, so–considering that there are only two remaining in the first season–it’s highly likely that he’s either getting it in episode 12 or 13.
Here’s hoping for the former.
We also meet Melvin Potter (Matt Gerald), who actually appeared last episode, though I didn’t realize his significance at the time. He exists in the Marvel Universe, and is known as Gladiator, though this version appears to be a bit of a savant (he attacked the Devil with a saw blade, which was one of Gladiator’s main weapons, so maybe that was a bit of foreshadowing?).
It’s a nice shout-out to the comic character, though I would have wished that he were more in line with that version.
