On Monday, the official Daredevil Twitter account shared the first teaser for the third season, a post-credits scene from Iron Fist Season 2 where the titular character gives a confession and reveals that "Matt Murdock is dead." As if that isn't dark enough, the tweet that accompanied the video painted a picture even more grim.
The tweet contained nothing more than a reference to a Bible verse, Job 12:22. On its own, that reference doesn't seem all that menacing, but the verse it acknowledges spells trouble for Daredevil.
"He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings utter darkness into the light." - Job 12:22

Not only does that verse paint an ominous picture for Daredevil Season 3, but the entire book itself lends plenty of dangerous foreshadowing to the story of Matt Murdock. If you're unfamiliar, the book tells the story of a man named Job, who was a devout follower of God. When Satan wanted to test the faith of God's people, God told him to test Job because his faith would never waver, no matter how grave the circumstance. The Devil proceeded to take everything that Job had, including the lives of his entire family, yet the man still remained faithful to God.
Daredevil has long been a man of devout faith, but that will surely be tested when he returns in for a third season. If Matt Murdock has a breaking point, it will likely come this season, after he's lost everything, including his own life.
