Season 2 of The Punisher finds Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) keeping a low profile until a troubled teen named Amy (Giorgia Whingham) gets hit-men after her and Frank reverts back to killing to protect her. Billy Russo (Ben Barnes) also finds himself recovering and doesn’t remember what he did and what happened to him, with Agent Madani (Amber Rose Revah) keeping a close eye on him.

As we all know, Stranger Things was Netflix’s big hit last year – it was one of the most talked about shows of the summer. And while I was a fan of season 1 and enjoyed it a lot, I didn’t get all the hype and thought that people overrated it. I heard complaints about how season 2 needs to come faster, when is season 2 coming out, blah blah blah – that kind of stuff and I just remember thinking “Um you do know TV shows need to take time right?” And I am so glad that they took their time with season 2 because it is so good and  even better than season 1.

I just have to start out by saying I am very impressed by Noah Schnapp who plays Will Byers. He wasn’t a big part of the last season, since well he was missing the whole time. But here he really got to play and I’m telling you he delivered every time – actually he was my favorite part of this season and I didn’t think anyone could top Eleven in the show. His character had me worried, frightened, and sympathetic all at the same time. He was the emotional crux of the whole show. Of course everyone else’s acting was exemplary as well. I’m really surprised at how the show was able to expand its mythology and universe, increase the stakes, and create realistic and compelling character arcs which made season 2 a better story.
