Johnny Bacon
SPOILER - SPOILER - SPOILER  - SPOILER Punisher: S1/E11 The Abyss - If you have feelings, this episode will rip them out and stomp on them. Lab Rat's "Woman in the Fridge" gets taken to an entire new level, as the woman isn't all the way in the fridge, but she may, or may not, have her kids with her. If you have kids, prepare to have your heart ripped out of your chest as from by a Sumerian God on holiday.(edited)
In short, Punisher: S1/E11 The Abyss is the John Wick of Frank Castle on Netflix.
(Note from Michelle - Title is from S2 E11)

Replying to @Lurkz05 @Symce
Yeah. We've been discussing this on @LegendsofSHIELD for a while now. We're betting on official cancellation announcements in the next month or so for Punisher and Jessica Jones while they focus on their PG/PG13 properties.
