The first season of Daredevil did a lot of things very, very well, but arguably nothing was better than its seriously intense fight choreography. Watching Matt Murdock, blind vigilante, kicking asses and taking names with the help of his four heightened senses was amazing, and no scene did it better than the iconic hallway fight from Episode 2.
If your memory is in need of a refresher:
Several rooms, a dozen gangsters, one kidnapped child. This was the moment I knew Daredevil had me hooked.
So, if you're anything like me, you'll be pleased to hear that one scene in the third episode of Season 2 comes pretty damn close to topping the thrill of the hallway fight. No actual story spoilers ahead, but obviously you still might want to watch the first three episodes before you read on.
Here's the scene in question - you can call it the Stairwell Fight.
Let's break it down for you: While Karen is working hard on a case at the office, still in the dark over Daredevil's real identity...
...Matt is on a mission of his own, and as you can see in the GIF below, he's starting to grow into the role of vigilante, even taking some borderline sadistic enjoyment in what he does.
In further proof of his badass credentials, Matt takes on multiple men at a time, this time with the help of a chain. Because, y'know, chains hurt.
Matt ducks out of the hallway and into a stairwell, where he suddenly finds himself outnumbered six-to-one. Needless to say, he deals with it the way you or I would swat a fly.
Another room, another group of bat-wielding opponents. These guys have "Dogs of Hell" on the backs of their jackets, which is either the scariest or the lamest thing in the world, depending on how much you enjoy Sons of Anarchy.
When you've just taken out about 17 guys, all built like trucks, your endurance is probably gonna take a hit — and suddenly the tables turn, and Matt is thrown against the wall...
Is this where the Daredevil's luck runs out? And what's Karen Page doing with that X-ray of a very familiar looking skull? There's only one way to find out...
