Punisher Episode Nine Review Podcast Spoiler filled Synopsis
Written by: Angela LaManna
Directed by: Marc Jobst
As Dinah Madani (Amber Rose Revah) continues to blame herself for Stein’s death, Lewis executes a series of bombings throughout New York City witnessed by Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal)and Micro (Ebon Moss-Bachrach). As the terrorist alert rises in New York, Lewis Wilson (Daniel Webber) sends Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) a letter, believing she will side with his cause as she had with Castle. When she doesn’t, he contacts Page as she participates in an on-air debate between her and pro-gun control Senator Stan Ori (Rick Holmes) and threatens her life and the lives of those at the New York Bulletin. He hangs up after he issues his warning “sic semper tyrannis“ that is recognised by both Castle and Curtis Hoyle (Jason R. Moore) reciting his unit’s Latin phrase “Thus always to tyrants”. Curtis immediately goes looking for Lewis, ending up at O’Connor’s house where he finds Lewis’ bomb-making supplies and O’Connor’s decaying corpse only for Lewis to overpower him and tie him to a chair with a Claymore mine strapped to his chest with “Front Towards Enemy”. As Castle waits outside Lewis’ home Micro tracks his cell phone signal to O’Connor’s address where Frank finds Curtis and save his life after convincing Lewis to disarm the bomb. Castle proceeds to escape from the police after Lewis calls in the police to aid his escape and keep Frank at arms length. Meanwhile, in a bar Madani summons Dutch courage in anticipation for Stein’s funeral where she hopes to make a grand gesture in his memory. As she gets up to go Lieberman introduces himself to her at the bar and not only reveals Rawlins’ name to her but also his work with Castle, just as a police car dash-cam footage on the news captures Frank’s image escaping the scene of a bomb factory and raising his public profile and continued existence.
