Thank you very much Marvel, for setting up a sweet unconventional romance in Daredevil with the characters of Foggy and Karen, then changing your minds in the last three episodes. Because of course, since Foggy’s off trying to solve the Kingpin case, Karen can no longer get immediate emotional support and validation from him, and therefore immediately switches back over to Matt so he can comfort her instead through the trauma induced in the back three. That’s fine of course, because you’ve already sent Claire packing, so we won’t have a stupid love triangle bogging down your gritty action series. And look, Foggy even gets a consolation girlfriend in the form of his ex because HE’S the SOLE REASON she now has morality again and he was really good in the sack during their booty call. Somehow. After drinking heavily. No one will notice or care anyway, because Matt and Karen are both hot!!!! They’re look good together!!!! WHO THE FUCK CARES????
…..ok, I am admittedly reading way too far into the meanings and agendas Marvel may or may not have added, and I did actually enjoy the finale despite my shipper’s complaints. Hell, they’re even not choking me with the idea of Matt/Karen, so I could potentially get behind it in the future once it stings less. But I really really thought Foggy/Karen was gonna be a thing and I was so exciting, because the actors have a ton of chemistry and there was just something about them that made it different and super refreshing. Maybe it was that Karen was allowed to flirt and make jokes and be dorky with Foggy, instead of automatically assuming he’s a dumb uneducated doofus (but in a cute, platonic way) for even daring to flirt with her, as most main female characters do when they meet the less conventionally attractive goofy sidekick. But no, she’s the lead, so she’s got to be with our sexy young main hero.
Tl;dr: SOMEONE GET ME SOME FOGGY/KAREN FANFIC STAT! AND WE NEED A SHIP NAME! I nominate either Foggy Pages (which admittedly just ends up being a subtle blind joke) or some kind of eel pun.
