    And there we have it... the first allusion to the Avengers!

    And if you didn't think so before, Fisk is truly a monster. First. The date with the art gallery woman being a complete ruse (because he doesn't want to be seen in public, I'd say), then the absolutely brutal decapitation by car door.

    I couldn't tell, was he wearing some type of armored suit, or was that supposed to be his skin? I think it's the former, but having it be his skin could be interesting too.

    Huh?

    They've pretty much alluded to the Avengers in every episode, starting with the Battle of New York in the first one...

    Interesting that they stuck with Vincent D'Onofrio's natural size for the Kingpin, instead of making him bigger. I guess they figured there's no way they could make him as imposing as in the comics, and D'Onofrio can be larger than life without prosthetics...

    I meant the actual members, not just the events of the film.

    I'm half expecting a cameo from one of the avengers in the final episode.

    I'm stopping here for a few days before watching more episodes, I don't want to have to wait over a year for the next season.

    I think in this episode, Kingpin showed how imposing he can be - he's way stronger than he looks. I hope they show some of his backstory; it seems like he just came out of nowhere, no one's ever heard of him, but he's super rich.

    I understand the "we don't speak his name" thing though, you never know who has a parabolic mic pointed at them at any given time. I wonder if the operations guy has powers too, he just sat there while Fisk did his thing, very calm.

    Actually, wasn't it James in the car with him?

    Leland is the older gentleman who is aways in the group scenes

    I guess it depends on who he means by "operations guy"...

    I'm really loving this show... Not sure about who Leland Owlsley is though. Is that who Wesley is?

    Leland is the older financial guy who makes sarcastic remarks all the time.

    I don't get this. Why would he go out on a date in a restaurant if he didn't want to be seen in public?

    You got that he bought out the restaurant, right? Everybody in there was in his employ?

    The most amusing thing for me was The Brasserie which is a NY practical landmark restaurant - it has been around for as long as I can remember - - - when D'Onofrio said the place had only been open for a month.

    Can we talk about Rosario Dawson?
    I think this may very well be the BEST thing she has ever done.
    I didn't know she had it in her.

    My amazing skills of linking actors to previous roles struck again on Fisk: Did anyone else catch that he was the farmer/"bug" in "Men in Black"? The voice totally gave it away, and I didn't even have to look it up.
