Punisher Episode Eight Review Podcast Spoiler filled Synopsis

Written by: Felicia D. Henderson

Directed by: Antonio Campos

Billy Russo (Ben Barnes) opens up to Dinah Madani (Amber Rose Revah) about his past and Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal)and Micro (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) come to terms with Frank’s past as they learn about William Rawlins (Paul Schulze) identity.  From the computer monitors Lieberman starts to see the strains and stresses on his family, as the monitors turn off he sends Frank over to his home where Sarah Lieberman (Jaime Ray Newman) shares her concerns about her son, Zach (Kobi Frumer), along with a bottle of rose and an awkward kiss with Frank. Micro hits the whisky but him and Frank work things out about that kiss. In the whisky haze, however, Micro has a moment of clarity realising that him and Frank should be working with Madani and not against her, but Frank is not convinced simply wanting Rawlins dead. As Castle heads back to Micro’s home to confront Zach about the knife he has in his possession he learns that he has grown afraid since his father’s “death”. After convincing Lieberman that seeing his son would be too dangerous, the two agree that the next course of action is to work with Madani. Meanwhile, Rawlins and Russo decide to go after Castle, unaware that Madani, Sam Stein (Michael Nathanson) and their DHS team are going after them as part of a decoy operation. A shootout unfolds, in which several SWAT officers and several of Russo’s men are killed. As Russo makes his escape from the trap, Stein flanks and corners Russo outside. As Russo is about to be cuffed Russo pulls his concealed assassin knife on Stein. As he bleeds out Madani rushes to save him but as he tries to tell her about Russo the words fail as his breath slips slowly from him. As Madani sits in shock in her bathtub she consoled and helped to wash the blood off her body by Russo.
