Warning: Full spoilers for The Punisher Season 2, Episode 5 below. If you need a refresher on where we left off, check out our review of Season 2, Episode 4.
Frank Castle may be back in New York now, but it’s not looking as though we can expect a Punisher/Jigsaw showdown anytime soon. Just as Frank whiled away many hours with Micro in their abandoned power plant hideout in Season 1, Frank and his new partner Amy seem content to coast on Agent Madani’s increasingly strained hospitality for as long as possible. The series is in danger of stalling at this point, though there’s just enough progression in the latter half of this episode to keep the momentum going.
