    Wow, that 3rd episode was perfection. An origin story for Maya in 8 minutes that held a lot of weight. The action, camera work, music all done so well. The Director Bert & Bertie should be given a marvel film. I'm glad to see he is directing the next two episodes also.

    Bert & Bertie are two female directors, otherwise I completely agree!

    Just wait until the Bert & Ernie episode, it's going to be killer.

    "Hey Kate, why do you have a banana in your ear?"

    The resemblance between Kate and Clint to Bert and Ernie-- is uncanny.

    I would pay good money to have Hawkeye say, “YOU HAVE FAILED THIS CITY!” :)

    Only 3 episodes in and we still have no idea what the general story is ( or i don't and am dense).

    "Uncle" has to be introduced ( would be so cool if it really is D'Onofrio's Kingpin, one of the best onscreen Marvel villains ever) and possibly Yelena. I fear 3 episodes may not be enough without it becoming too crowded or hectic. It may not be enough time to fully explore the implications, i just don't want to see Yelena attacking Clint, him explaining what actually happened and her being "Oh ok, didn't know that. My bad!"

    The story is the murder of the old guy and the inadvertent entanglement of Kate into organized crime by putting on Clint‘s Ronin suit.

    Exactly. Not everything needs to be about the Fate Of The Universe!!!! (In fact, most stories shouldn't be, to make those which are more special.)

    It's a classic Christmas story. Dad's trying to get home for Christmas, but things keep getting in the way.

    With the news of Kevin Feige saying that Charlie Cox will be Daredevil again, I'm now cautiously hopeful that we may actually get Vincent D'Onofrio here.

    Even if it’s them reprising their roles, I imagine their characters will be somewhat different to their Netflix counterparts

    I was secretly hoping Nathaniel would get left behind and end up holding off some unlikely criminals in the family's hotel room with a toy bow and arrow. It is Christmas after all.

    This could be all off-screen. The end credits scene would be Laura at the farm screaming "Where's Nathaniel!?!!" into the phone, cutting to Clint bursting into the hotel to find him with two crooks tied up in improvised traps.

    At least him almost being left behind was a nice shout out to Home Alone.

    True, but it'll still be great to have them back.

    Honestly, unless there's some major contradiction, I'll just keep imagining they're the same characters with the same history. Hell, even then I might just squint past it.

    I can see them alluding to having a history, though I'll be curious to see how they handle it since, in the Netflix show (hiding it just in case)

    Kingpin figured out that Matt Murdock is Daredevil.

    Yeah, I'm curious about that, too. I don't need big sweeping references, but a few nods here and there that aren't confusing for non-Netflixverse viewers would be cool.

    I wouldn't think it would be difficult for them to use the continuity of the Netflix shows - keep things vague enough to not confuse the non-Netflix viewers but establish that these characters have a history and go where we last saw them. Hopefully easy enough to establish a reason for Fisk not having gone public with Daredevil's identity. Plus a post-Blip world allows them to change up the status quo.

    The cinematography on that chase scene was insane!
