Spoilers for Daredevil Season 2 are to come.

Earlier today, Netflix once again managed to inspire a whole bunch of comic book fans to start cheering in unison when the company finally delivered on past rumors and ordered up The Punisher for an initial spinoff season, with Jon Bernthal reprising the role he conquered in Daredevil Season 2. And now that the fist-pumping and the shotgun-waving have stopped, it’s time to start thinking about what we could end up getting from Frank Castle’s first solo TV outing.

However it ends up coming out, here are six things that The Punisher definitely needs to give viewers, from character-based angles to comic book details. We of course want to see way more than just six things, but this is a primer guide for the creative team to look over before seriously considering each option and putting them all to good use. (That happens, right?)

The Most Brutal Action TV Can Offer
While the single-shot hallway sequence from Season 1 and the similar stairwell-included fight in Season 2 are the most well-executed action beats of Daredevil, the third spot has to go to Frank Castle’s masterful and surprisingly hardcore prison fight, where he punched and shanked his way to victory through beautifully choreographed brawling. I want a scene like that to happen in every single episode of The Punisher. Obviously the show will balance its action with the personal drama and character development, but the character’s name does not imply he handles situations with agreements and peace treaties. He uses fists and guns, and I fully expect and hope Netflix and Marvel will allow this show to go beyond everything we’ve seen so far from the companies’ previous collaborations.
