Shadows in the Glass is a very Wilson Fisk-centered episode, as Wesley (Toby Leonard Moore) thinks Nobu (Peter Shinkoda) is becoming a problem, while Det. Blake (Chris Tardio) is recovering from the gunshot that everyone thinks was done by Daredevil, though was actually initiated by Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio).
Fisk wants Blake killed, and enlists his partner, Det.Hoffman (Daryl Edwards) to do the job.
There’re flashbacks-a-plenty to Fisk’s childhood, that show how he came to be the man that he is.
Though is the man he’s become enough to stand against Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho), Nobu and Leyland Owlsley (Bob Gunton), who have grown tired of Fisk’s lack of results.
Daredevil is at times a remarkably brutal series–that’s not a criticism. It fits the subject matter–though Shadow in the Glass is probably the most difficult to watch episode yet, though what’s most fascinating is that you also see the building of Daredevil, and how he would eventually come to be known by that name.
