Warning: Full spoilers for The Punisher Season 2, Episode 6 below. If you need a refresher on where we left off, check out our review for Season 2, Episode 5.
Perhaps the biggest question surrounding The Punisher: Season 2 is whether we’ll see Frank Castle evolve into a character more in line with the one from the comics. In those stories, Frank is an inhuman force of nature. He punishes indiscriminately. If you’re a criminal, he kills you. If you’re a criminal who helps him, he kills you anyway. By comparison, Jon Bernthal’s Frank is much more restrained. He tends to limit his wrath to those who have specifically wronged him. But with this episode, there’s a definite sense that the real Punisher is fighting his way to the surface.
