Hell’s Kitchen Season 2

Hell's Kitchen Season 2

It was the last episode of Daredevil's Season 2 and you know what? I'm really happy it is over. Although the first three episodes of season 2 were at least watchable (except maybe the silly, empty conversation on the roof from ep3), the rest of the season is more less a lot of crap, and the final episode was a dirty, rotten cherry on a top of it. I suppose the authors just ran out of the ideas – the whole season looks like some loose short stories glued with empty, awkward small- talk about literally nothing, and the final episode is the quintessence of it. Some scenes are just unbearable – like the one on the graveyard, with the stupidest ever conversation over Elektra's grave between Murdock and Stick or “the Christmas scene” – I'm sure both of them were just to fill the holes in the timeline. Or the scene when Punisher comes back to his house (intact! like nobody visited this place since Castle's family had been murdered), then paints his famous logo in the shed (fully equipped and intact as well), then burns everything down and walks away without looking at the giant explosion behind him. It was painful to watch it. Honestly, I'm a little bit surprised – the first season was almost perfect, great story, acting, mystery – all of these made me wait impatiently for season 2. And the season 2 made me lost the interest about the rest of the series. I can't believe it can get better after this, unless they hire back the ppl who wrote scripts for season 1 – I cannot honestly believe they were the same authors who wrote the shitty season 2. I gave to this episode 3 out of 10. I would be 1, but there were few moments I liked – the one when Daredevil is given his legendary “all-in-one” club, or when he tries it during crazy run on the roof, there were several seconds of hope that not all is lost.

Hell's Kitchen Season 2

Gordon Ramsay is the head chef. Jason Thompson is the narrator. Jean-Philippe Susilovic, a Belgian maître d’hôtel, comes from Petrus, one of Ramsay’s London restaurants and appeared in the first seven seasons and later returned for season 11. He left after season 12 and was replaced by Marino Monferrato for season 13. Susilovic was also the maître d’hôtel for the first series of the original British version. James Lukanik replaced Susilovic for seasons 8–10. Each team also has the services of one of two sous-chefs. The sous-chefs are Andi Van Willigan and Aaron Mitrano (since season 15). Previous sous-chefs were Mary Ann Salcedo, Gloria Felix, season 2 winner Heather West, Scott Leibfried, James Avery and season 10 winner Christina Wilson. In season 15, Wilson filled in for Van Willigan-Cutspec who was getting married at the time of filming but returned for one episode when her reception was one of the themed dinner services for that season.

Heather made an appearance in the eighth episode of the third season, where she greeted challenge winner Julia and tag-along Jen at Terra Rossa. She appeared in the third season finale where she, along with other cooks, judged the finalists’ dishes. She made an appearance along with all other winners during the fifth season finale to commemorate the start of the Hell’s Kitchen Wall of Fame. Heather was the sous chef for the red team on season 6 of Hell’s Kitchen, replacing Gloria Felix, who was sous chef for seasons 4 and 5.

All this talk of setting and the importance of location comes about because, although the premiere is titled ‘Bang,’ the season doesn’t necessarily start with one – that’s reserved for the “don’t forget to binge” conclusion that wraps up DD and The Punisher’s first encounter. Instead, the season begins with a very deliberate and long panning shot of the Hell’s Kitchen skyline; one that is underlined by ambient voices talking about the heat wave the city is currently in the grips of. On one hand, that opening shot feels like the show is trying too hard, that it is too eager to get this one particular point across. But on the other hand, the introduction feels like the series saluting what it has to work with, what sets it apart from everything else flying the ever-expanding Marvel banner. In the end, it’s great to see Daredevil recognize the importance of Hell’s Kitchen and the way it makes the show’s characters and this particular corner of the MCU feel so interesting and so vibrant. It’s also great the series acknowledges how, without Hell’s Kitchen, Daredevil might be just another guy in a red suit.

Hell's Kitchen Season 2

Hell’s Kitchen is a reality television show that uses a progressive elimination format to narrow down a field of 12 to 20 aspiring chefs to a single winner over the course of one season. The U.S. version of Hell’s Kitchen follows the format of the UK version though the show is recorded and not performed live, nor is there audience participation in the elimination of chefs. The show is produced at Hell’s Kitchen, a modified warehouse in Los Angeles that includes the restaurant, dual kitchen facilities and a dormitory where the chefs reside while on the show. They are also given knife sets that they get to keep, regardless of their progress.

By and large, that is the sentiment Daredevil season 2 seems to want to convey – that it knows exactly where this bruising story is going because it knows where this bruising story came from. In this case it’s Hell’s Kitchen. Now maybe this distinct sense of place that Daredevil’s playground gives off has something to do with the way it’s filmed, with tight shots, on the streets and in alleyways, or walking shoulder-to-shoulder amongst bustling pedestrians with the sort of neighborhood charm that inspires them to call someone leading a blind man by the arm an “a**hole.” Then again, maybe it’s because every character Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) or Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) run into in the first hour manages to fit the words “Hell’s Kitchen” into their conversation. Some even repeat themselves during the same exchange – just in case those watching at home (i.e., everyone) didn’t quite get that Daredevil takes place in Hell’s Kitchen.

To the credit of everyone working on Netflix’s Daredevil, though – that includes last season’s showrunner Steven S. DeKnight, series creator Drew Goddard, and season 2 co-showrunners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie – there is a clear desire to stake a claim on this specific patch of New York real estate and to have it feel like a real, physical place. Whereas certain films and programs consist of a bland mélange of taupes and beiges, of signage and semi-exposed brickwork, of places that exude the sort of veiled specificity of a Crate & Barrel or Pottery Barn catalogue, Daredevil‘s Hell’s Kitchen is a place with its own distinct heartbeat. Hell’s Kitchen is dirty and dingy; it’s dark and moldy. All those murky corners give it a sense of mystery and personality and ambiguity. You like this place, but you don’t trust it – there’s never a moment where you actually feel comfortable in this environment.

Season finales aren’t always about parting ways and moving on, but that was the overall theme of the final episode of season two of Marvel’s Daredevil. Everyone ended up in a different place than where they started in the first episode. Some took different career paths, some moved offices, some learned valuable lessons that changed the way they looked at the world, and some shuffled off this mortal coil. “A Cold Day in Hell’s Kitchen” focused on those evolutions, particularly with Matt and Elektra.

Netflix hasn’t said anything about a third season of Daredevil, but with the teases carefully put in place, I hope we get it. I want to know what happens next, and I want to see everyone again beyond cameos in other series. The second season certainly got a little crowded what with Punisher and Elektra and was maybe not as focused as it could have been–the presence of multiple enemies made the throughline tricky. I was ready to argue Daredevil had the least character development in his own series, but I’m not positive if it’s true. Matt rode the relationship rollercoaster and learned about including the people he loves in his life, both as Matt Murdock and the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen.

Karen pushed forward, too. She’s had one hell of a time. Like Brett pointed out, she’s been part of every recent shit storm in Hell’s Kitchen. She’s been captured and threatened repeatedly–maybe one time too many–but she’s found her place at the Bulletin. Assuming she actually finishes a story. She’s survived physical and extreme emotional duress and walked away more than intact and more capable than ever. I’m disappointed her incident with Wesley was never brought up, but it did clearly affect her character so I don’t mind as much. And now, she knows the truth about Matt’s extracurricular activities.
