"Banner's work was very early phase. It wasn't even weapons application. He thought he was working on radiation resistance. I would never have told him what the project really was. But he was so sure of what he was onto, that he tested it on himself. And something went very wrong. Or it went very right. As far as I'm concerned, that man's whole body is the property of the US Army."

When they hear noises, Natchios goes ahead of Murdock, and when he walks into the room, she gleefully tells him that she has Roscoe Sweeney, the killer of Murdock's father, bound to a chair for him to enact revenge on. This was his house all along, and she expected him to appreciate the gesture. Murdock is at first reluctant, but Natchios manipulates him to start punching Sweeney. Because of her, he begins to savor the feeling of revenge. However, when she then tries to get him to kill Sweeney, Murdock realizes what a dangerous relationship he has got himself into. He steps away, breaking off his relationship with Natchios, and calls the police; however, when he looks around, Natchios is gone.[43]

Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson swear to be business partners

  • With their finals fast approaching after nearly 3 years of law school, having now developed a strong friendship, Nelson often jokes about Murdock's blindness, while Murdock would tease Nelson about many of his poor life choices, such as his decision to join a course studying Punjabi simply to get close to a girl. On a night out together when they really should be studying, Nelson asks Murdock what happened to "the Greek girl" who Murdock was dating, to which Murdock simply replies that things did not work out. The two joke about their future as partners at law, and they swear to work together for many years.[27]

She takes with her an assortment of stolen Terrigen Crystals, which she uses to transform Katya without the proper mental conditioning. Katya develops sensory manipulating powers and a hunger for pain. The mother-daughter duo travel to Bahrain, where they create chaos by using Katya's powers to sap the emotional energies from local civilians.[52]

Becoming The Cavalry

Agent Melinda May cradling the deceased Katya Belyakov.

  • Rescue in Bahrain: S.H.I.E.L.D. takes notice of Eva Belyakov's activities and tracks her down to Manama, Bahrain. A team led by Phil Coulson and Melinda May is dispatched to analyze Belyakov for the Index; they are unaware of Katya's involvement or powers. Eva and Katya assume control of a group of gangsters and hold the entire S.H.I.E.L.D., minus Coulson and May, hostage within a warehouse. May ventures into the warehouse alone and crosses off the controlled gangsters and Eva. Katya reveals herself to May and nearly uses her powers to kill the subjugated S.H.I.E.L.D. team, forcing May to shoot her dead. For her role in saving them, the S.H.I.E.L.D. team gives May the nickname "The Cavalry", a moniker she grows to despise.[52][53]

  5. In Eight Diagram Dragon Palm, Harold says, "I fought the good fight for 3 years." In Dragon Plays with Fire, Gao says, "Harold was diagnosed with cancer. At most he had 2, 3 years to live." It can be surmised that he fought it for a little longer than expected the expected 2½ years, nearly 3 - around 2 years, 10 months. Working back from his reasoned date of death on January 4, 2004, he would have been diagnosed around March 2001.

  10. 10.0 10.1 In Shadow Hawk Takes Flight, Dr. Edmonds says the commercial was "from about 15 years ago." This is said on February 11, 2016, so 15 years prior would mean the commercial was released around March 30, 2001. The commercial is reasonably simple, so it would have been filmed only 1 or 2 weeks prior. This also fits with what Joy says in the same episode, that she was "about 10 years old" when they filmed the commercial. She would have been 10 from approximately October 2000 to October 2001, and March 2001 falls comfortably in that margin.

  12. In Shadow Hawk Takes Flight, Simon tells Danny Rand on February 10, 2016 that Jimmy has "been here almost 15 years". "Almost" can usually be taken to mean around 98.5%, putting it around May 3, 2001.
  13. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 3.05: 4,722 Hours
  14. In 4,722 Hours, Daniels says that he came to Maveth in "2001."
  15. In Rolling Thunder Cannon Punch, Danny Rand says, "I'm pretty sure it was in July, 2001... I broke my arm skateboarding."

  18. 18.0 18.1 In Iron Fist: Season 1, throughout February 2016, there are many references to the air crash being 15 years ago: In Snow Gives Way, Joy says, "It's been like 15 years since Danny and his parents died." In Shadow Hawk Takes Flight, Ward says, "[Danny] waited 15 years to come back," Harold says, "Ask him where he's been the last 15 years," Dr. Edmonds says, "Where have you been in the last 15 years?", and Danny says that K'un-Lun "only appears on this earthly plane every 15 years, give or take, depending on the celestial tilt." In Eight Diagram Dragon Palm, Danny says, "After living in a monastery for 15 years." In Immortal Emerges from Cave, Danny says, "I've been doing this for 15 years." In The Blessing of Many Fractures, Danny says, "I've spent the last 15 years learning..." In The Mistress of All Agonies, Gao refers to the crash as "events that happened 15 years ago", and in Dragon Plays with Fire, Hogarth talks about "wherever the hell it is that you were for 15 years" and Claire refers to the crash as "something that happened 15 years ago." 15 years prior would put this around early 2001, however, we know from Rolling Thunder Cannon Punch that the Rands were still around in July 2001. In The Mistress of All Agonies, Ward Meachum's birthday is given as September 19, 1986 (see other references), and in Snow Gives Way, Ward says, "I was 15 when [the Rands] died." This definitively places the air crash between September 19, 2001 and September 18, 2002. On top of this, the iPod 1st Generation, which Rand owns at the time of the crash, was released on October 23, 2001, and in the New York Bulletin | Joy and Ward Meachum Special Report video, it is said that Harold's death, which is known to be 2004, albeit reasoned as early January, was "2 years" after the crash. From all of this, the accident is reasoned as October 29, 2001, six days after the iPod's release, a little over 2 years before January 4, 2004, and still reasonable enough to be considered "15 years" before February 2016, by the simple math of "2016 - 2001 = 15". This also allows time for Danny's arm to have healed since the break in July.

  26. In The Blessing of Many Fractures, Joy discusses "that last summer in the Hamptons with Dad." With Harold's death dated to January 4, 2004, this last summer would be the summer of 2003.
  27. 27.0 27.1 Daredevil: 1.10: Nelson v. Murdock
  28. 28.0 28.1 It is shown in the Iron Fist promotional image, "Harold Meachum Gravely Ill" that Harold's illness was revealed not long before his death. It can be assumed that this was around 2 months prior to his death, which is dated to January 4, 2004, putting the public revelation around November 2003.

With Harold's death dated to January 4, 2004, "the week before" would place it around December 27, 2003. It can also be assumed that the Hand approaching Harold was not long before this.
  31. Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; no text was provided for refs named IF109
  32. Throughout February 2016, there are references to Harold's death. In Snow Gives Way, Ward says it was "12 years ago". However, in The Mistress of All Agonies, Dr. Paul Edmonds says Harold has "been dead for 13 years", in Bar the Big Boss, Joy says, "I haven't had a dad for 13 years," and in Dragon Plays with Fire, Harold says "I've had 13 years to plan this out," Joy says, "Dad has been held prisoner for 13 years," and Danny tells Harold, "You're going to prison. Only this time, it's gonna be nowhere near as nice as the one you spent the last 13 years in." Overall, the evidence points to his death being in late 2003 - "12 years" by rounding, but "13 years" by the common calculation of "2016 - 2003 = 13". However, an official video revealed Harold died in 2004. To make this fit as best as possible, Harold's death is dated to the first few days of 2004 - January 4th specificially - to be as close as possible to fitting best. This fits with Ward's statement that it was "12 years ago", and it can be assumed that all the news coverage for his illness was in the final months of 2003, and so others might remember it as being an event mainly in 2003, or just counting inclusively, for whatever reason referring to it as "13 years ago".

Nathan Fillion's career in real life started in 1993-1994 with a couple of things, but he only started acting in bigger things around 1998 with Saving Private Ryan where he has a small role, and then he was a big name following Firefly and Buff The Vampire Slayer in 2002-2003.

Therefore, Haxan 2 must have released on October 31, 2008 for the same director to then film Dead Before Arrival in 2009 and release in 2010.

  67. In The Writing on the Wall, it is said on the reasoned date of March 16, 2015 that Rebecca Stevens was said to have died "5 years ago." This would place her supposed death around April 21, 2010. It can be assumed that the trials began around a month before this, approximately March 19, 2010, and that the preparations on Project T.A.H.I.T.I. would have begun around 3 months prior to that, approximately December 18, 2009.
