To start with, let me give you fair warning that this “clip” is really nothing more than a quick tease from the upcoming series, which personally I am just fine with because the show comes out on Friday and I do not need to see that many spoiler filled scenes from ‘The Defenders’ just yet. But it is fun to see the characters come together, and not just the four main heroes who we have already seen working together in the trailers and TV spots already released for the ‘The Defenders.’
The clip has Karen (from ‘Daredevil’) and Trish (from ‘Jessica Jones’) looking at what I can only assume is a wall of evidence gathered by Karen during her work for the New York Bulletin, with Trish commenting that “they” came after her too. She thought Jessica was exaggerating (meaning Karen has already met Jessica by this point otherwise she would have no idea who Trish is talking about) and that she had no idea things were that bad. Guess that means that whatever the Defenders are facing is clearly something that Karen will help explain to the group, and maybe even Karen will be the one to help pull everyone together as she will be among the first to realize the magnitude of the situation.

Of course, the ladies here will not be the only side-characters meeting up when ‘The Defenders’ is released on Friday, as we know that many of the recurring characters from ‘Daredevil,’ ‘Jessica Jones, ‘Luke Cage’ and ‘Iron Fist’ will be part of the cross-over series, including Foggy Nelson, Elektra, Claire Temple, Malcolm, Hogarth, Misty Knight and Colleen Wing. And we also know that scenes like this one will be essential to bring the main team together as apparently the main team of Defenders will not even meet in the first episode, so I suspect it will be their side characters that help assemble them all together.
Check out the clip above and let us know your thoughts on how it might all work out and what kind of roles Karen and Trish could have in the overall narrative in the comments below!
