We have come to a point in this season in which Hell's Kitchen is in the midst of absolute chaos. The Hand is taking over, Frank is out of prison, Foggy is hospitalized, the law firm is in shambles, and really nobody knows who to trust. This section of New York City has earned its Devilish name for the wrong reasons and at this point in time, there doesn't seem to be much hope.

In large part, this was an action-less episode, but it didn't feel any less eventful. Matt, Karen, and Foggy attended Reyes' mandatory meeting to talk about Frank's escape, which ended in some serious bloodshed. Of course, we don't really see who's behind the shooting, but I think we are supposed to infer that it's the Blacksmith? Especially since Frank gave himself up to Karen and saved her from the later shooting. If there was a positive that came from the shooting, it was Reyes admitting to her mistake at the "Sting" and confirming that the Blacksmith is still a lingering threat.

Speaking of threats, how fun was it seeing Matt go visit Fisk in jail and them share various threats back and forth? Despite Fisk not having a physical presence for most of the season, you got the sense that the ramifications of last year were still weighing on Matt and everyone else involved, so it was nice seeing that come to a forefront this week. It also seemed to foreshadow potential story lines next season with all of the dialogue between them.

The other major arc from this episode came by the victims of the Hand's experiments and their "recovery" in the hospital. Rosario Dawson reprised her role once again as she took care of the patients before they went crazy and killed people as they looked expressionless during the final moments of the episode. Quite the grim ending to a very ominous episode to begin with.

+Fisk/Murdock meeting

+Ominous tone

+Reyes takes the heat
