With so many great shows on the air these days, it’s hard to be shocked. After all, in a bid to keep us glued to the small screen, the boundaries are constantly being pushed, especially now that TV has not only caught up with film, but actually surpassed it in many ways.
What some might describe as “geek” TV shows now have mainstream appeal, huge (and often record breaking) audiences, and the kind of storytelling which ensures they’re among THE best content available on regular networks and online streaming serves alike.
With that in mind, what you’ll find here is our look at the ten most shocking moments in these shows. A mixture of those currently on the air and some old favourites, it goes without saying that there are spoilers
10. Karen Page Makes A Killer Decision
The first two seasons of Daredevil have their fair share surprises, but one of the biggest came from a moment far removed from the Man Without Fear’s actions when he’s suited up and fighting crime in Hell’s Kitchen.
Abducted by Wilson Fisk’s right hand man, the extremely confident Wesley places a loaded gun between himself and Karen and makes it clear that she’ll do what he says. He’s so confident in his abilities to intimidate her that he never once seems to consider the fact that she would pick up the gun to shoot him, but that’s exactly what she does.
Wesley may have threatened her and those she cares about, but Karen doesn’t act in self defence here; this is cold blooded murder, hence why it’s so shocking.
