Episode 5.  It's good to see Foggy again and I like seeing Cockroach get his comeuppance.  I liked the sleazy party scenes, too.

Pirhanna smiles way to much.  The bigger the smile the sharper the knife  that rule 48

They actually had Luke say "Where's my money, honey?".  That's what I'm talking about.  I liked Bushmaster and Luke's fight on the bridge.  As I keep saying, they've gotten better when it comes to fight scenes this season.  I'm not totally digging Misty's arc in these episodes, though.  I feel she already made peace with Scarfe being a dirty cop.  Finding out that he was dirty longer than she realized doesn't add much.

I'm glad Misty is gradually moving away from being a cop.  She keeps having the same conversations with her superiors about the rules and struggling to abide by them.  It's getting a little old.  I like that they show her and Luke in action finally.  I hope they give her some badass fight scenes in the future.  I also like how Shades and Comache's story is playing out.

Episode 8 is a lot of filler.  We've seen Misty grill Shades and Mariah at the police station before and we've seen bad guys take over the Paradise before.  Next episode seems to be where Danny Rand comes in.  That should liven things up.

It just occurred to me we still don't know what Luke was put away for and how Diamondback framed him or what evident exonerated him. At least by episode 9.

Episode 9 was a bottle episode.  Luke's dad is kind of an idiot.  And that bombshell between Tilda and Mariah was a doozy.  I'm wondering if Tilda will somehow take over the business in the future.

Did they say what the evidence was that exonerated him?  I think they did but I don't really remember.  I've actually found the pacing of this show the best of all the marvel shows.  Guessing they learned from last season and didn't try and kill a great villain for shock value this time.  Also Mariah is a better character this season she just annoyed me in the first.

They had a folder in the first season that provided evidence but never explained what that was.  That kinda bugs me.

This whole show, I'm not paying super close attention, working on other stuff simultaneously, but I'm rooting like hell for Bushmaster--haven't binged so hard on a show in a while, or rooted so hard for a villain

The first 5 episodes were a fucking CHORE, and I was hating this seasons. Eps 6-9 have turned the ship around, and I am invested now.

My biggest problem remains the Jamaicans' accents. I catch one out of every three words or so that they say.
