Daredevil Season 1 Episode 7: The Opera Music is a great episode to watch. It has some of the best action scenes and the music is just perfect.

Recap of Previous Episodes

The first season of Daredevil follows Matt Murdock, a lawyer who was blinded as a child in a freak accident. Despite his blindness, Murdock has heightened senses and is able to fight crime in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. The first six episodes of the season focus on Murdock’s origin story and how he became the Daredevil. In the seventh episode, titled “The Opera Music”, Murdock’s girlfriend, Karen Page, is kidnapped by the Russian Mob.

Episode 6

In the previous episode, “Stick”, Matt is horrified when he realizes that Elektra has been brainwashed by the Hand into becoming their assassin. He tries to get through to her, but she’s determined to carry out her mission. Meanwhile, Foggy and Karen team up to take down Fisk once and for all.

Episode 5

In episode 5, “The Cut Man”, Matt tries to help a former boxer named Frank Connect; Foggy and Karen investigate the death of Roscoe Sweeney; and Claire Temple tends to Matt’s injuries.

New Characters

Franklin “Foggy” Nelson

A close friend of Matt Murdock, Foggy Nelson is Matt’s partner in their law firm, Nelson and Murdock. Foggy is a passionate and dedicated lawyer who believes in justice for all, even if it means representing the unpopular client. He is often the voice of reason to Matt’s more impulsive actions.

Karen Page

Karen Page is a former assistant of Nelson and Murdock and the first client of their law firm. She was framed for the murder of her lover, Wesley, by Wilson Fisk and was sent to prison. After being rescued by Daredevil, she became an ally and moved into his apartment, where she begins working as his secretary.

After Foggy’s cancer diagnosis and Matt’s subsequent depression, Karen took on more responsibility at the law firm. She also learned that Fisk had been orchestrating her entire life, including the death of her brother. Enraged, she helped Matt take down Fisk once and for all.


Karen Page comes to Foggy Nelson with Matt Murdock’s business card, which she found after Nelson & Murdock successfully defended her in court. She tells Nelson that she needs their help to find out more about who Murdock really is, and she is surprised when Nelson tells her that he already knows. Meanwhile, Murdock continues to train with Stick, and is surprised when Stick tells him that he needs to start thinking about killing people, instead of just knocking them out.

Foggy and Karen investigate Union Allied

Foggy and Karen go to the offices of Union Allied to try and find out more about who they are and why they might be responsible for the bombing. They are not able to find much, but they do see that the company is run by a man named Leland Owlsley.

Daredevil stops a robbery

Daredevil stops a robbery at an opera house, but the leader of the robbers, Wilson Fisk, is not happy. He wants Daredevil to pay for his interference, and he will do whatever it takes to make Daredevil suffer.

Fisk meets with Madame Gao

Fisk meets with Madame Gao, a powerful businesswoman who is also a member of theHand. She tells him that he needs to be more careful, as the people he’s been killing are”the wrong sort.” Fisk insists that he’s doing what’s necessary, but Gao warns him that if he doesn’t stop, she’ll have no choice but to cut ties with him.


So, that’s it for Daredevil season 1! After a long and arduous journey, Matt Murdock finally defeats Wilson Fisk and brings peace to Hell’s Kitchen. It was a great season with some amazing action sequences and acting performances. I’m looking forward to seeing what season 2 has in store!

Daredevil Season 1 Episode 7 review

After a string of strong episodes, Daredevil’s first season took a dip with “The Blindspot,” an episode that moved the plot forward at a glacial pace and focused on the wrong characters. Thankfully, “The Deal” is a significant improvement, largely due to the fact that it focuses on the core group of characters that we care about and have been invested in since the beginning of the season.

The episode opens with Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) making a deal with the Chinese, which will allow him to ship his product through their port. This scenes serves two purposes: first, it allows us to see Fisk in his element, negotiating with people who are obviously intimidated by him; and second, it sets up the central conflict of the episode, which is whether or not Daredevil (Charlie Cox) will kill Fisk in order to save Elektra’s (Elodie Yung) life.

Elektra has been kidnapped by The Hand and they’re demanding that Daredevil kill Fisk in exchange for her life. This puts Daredevil in a difficult situation, because he knows that if he kills Fisk then Hell’s Kitchen will be plunged into chaos. However, if he doesn’t kill Fisk then Elektra will die.

There are some great scenes in this episode between Daredevil and Foggy (Elden Henson), as Foggy tries to talk sense into Matt and convince him that he can’t just go around killing people. However, Matt is so hell-bent on saving Elektra that he’s willing to do whatever it takes, even if it means sacrificing his own soul in the process.

The final confrontation between Daredevil and Fisk is extremely well done and one of the highlights of the episode. It’s a brutal fight that leaves both men battered and bloody, but it’s also a battle of wits as each man tries to outsmart the other. The acting by both Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio is top-notch and it’s clear that they are both enjoying playing these complex characters.

In conclusion, “The Deal” is a much better episode than “The Blindspot” and it makes me optimistic for the rest of the season. It’s exciting to see Daredevil finally go up againstFisk and I can’t wait to see how their rivalry plays out in future episodes.
