Warning: The following contains spoilers for Daredevil Season 3, Episode 10. If you need a refresher on where we left off, check out our review of Season 3, episode 9.
“Mom lost again.”
Yes, “Karen” represents a pause in the story, somewhat, for about two-thirds of this episode, but that time is spent in giant flashback to Karen’s tragic past and not our present day characters pacing, blabbing redundant dialogue, or hemming and hawing around the actual story.
Boy, it’s about time this series got around to illuminating certain aspects of Karen. Usually, all we get are Matt-centric trips down memory lane. In fact, even with all the mentions of her brother this season, I still didn’t expect this much focus on her. Yes, I thought the brother stuff would resurface in a big way, but I didn’t figure we’d actually devote this much time and effort to Karen’s dark past.
