OMG only thing is [SPOILER - highlight to read]: I am not too surprising is that she tooled JJ

Now for some rumors I heard. Putting in spoilers just in case if they are true
[SPOILER - highlight to read]:
* Foggy is the one who gets Luke released. And Luke makes fun of his nickname
* Jessica gets arrested in ep 2
* Daredevil only wears his suit in the last episode
* Matt reaches the villain building Midland Circle by following JJ so that she does not get into trouble. That's in ep 3. And that's where the Hallway fight is.
* Obviously for those who watched the first ep, Jess gets arrested only in ep 2
* Funny dialogue between Trish and Karen, and in another ep, b/w misty and colleen

Loving Cage he's a great character, Jessica is an angsty **** though. Would love to see her replaced with Moon Knight or **** even White Tiger. Or if any of ty other guys have a hero that could make a good fit for Netflix, yeah I can't stand her

Barring Madame Gao/Alexandra is it just me or was Nobu in spite of being lower ranked more skilled in terms of feats than [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Bakuto, Murasame, or Sowande

Matt steamrolled [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Murasame in spite of not having been DD for months

Yeah, without going into spoilers she was easily the strongest/most skilled person in the show. Definitely closer to her comic level imo, [SPOILER - highlight to read]: probably on par with the MCU soldiers at this point.

Matt also had some great feats, he [SPOILER - highlight to read]: beat Danny in H2H/and was soloing Bakuto/Masamune (Nobu's master), and kicked Bakuto hard enough to shatter a cinder block

I also loved the ending with [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Daredevil and Elektraand would consider it one of the best moments in the MCU, I loved the show.

Watched all 8 episodes last night and came away feeling... underwhelmed. I liked the slow build-up; the fact that each character got some time to him and herself was actually a nice touch. And the story for the first six episodes was fine - a bit predictable, but fine.

But something felt off with the last two. Perhaps it was just too much of a build-up, perhaps I expected too much, but I felt let-down and when I finished watching I sat there thinking: Meh.

I won't go into details yet or discuss specifics, not until after the weekend, so as not to spoil it for people who are still going to watch it. I'll just say the way I feel now I score it 6/10, even though I really liked the first six episodes.

They stated that their resources were running thin, which is why i assume we don't see the traditional Hand ninjas Nobu was using. In Iron Fist Bakuto was making a massive recruitment drive, which was stopped when Davos and Danny broke into their compound- so yeah they were desperate which is why they poured all of their resources straight into Black Sky under Alexandra. The writers also remarked that they're more or less finished

Just finished this. I thought it was pretty solid. Still not on par with DD S1 though.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: I thought the story was interesting overall, though it did seem to stall a few times in a few places. I liked most of the cast, but Danny got a bit annoying at various points. I thought Daredevil was great. Good story arc, and great fight scenes. I do wonder how he survived at the end though, and what happened to Elektra. Visual effects were hit and miss. In some scenes, the action and everything looks great. In others, like when Murakami falls down the hole during the final, looked terrible.

Elektra was an absolute monster in this. She was kicking the crap out of pretty much everyone who got in her way. Even Luke had serious problems with her, which is pretty impressive, considering he was completely ignoring IF's normal hits, and even took his chi punches without serious issues.

It does make me wonder about the various Fingers of the Hand though. Some, like Bakuto and Murakami, seem to just be highly skilled human level, but Gao can Force Push things, and Sowande was somehow managing to cause Luke pain with his strikes, when even Danny's IF punch barely kept Luke down for a few seconds.

Also, nice Spiderman light feat for Jessica during the finale.

On a random note, after watching this, I have way more respect for Nobu, based on how Daredevil performed against Danny, Elektra, the different Hand leaders etc.
