Why, oh why didn't you just kill Billy Russo when you had the chance, Frank?

That's the question I asked myself throughout the entirety of The Punisher's second season, which Task & Purpose had a chance to review ahead of the show's Jan. 18 release.

Fortunately for us, and less than fortunate for Frank and the villains he sets his sights on, he didn't, and that means we get another season of rip-roaring revenge. (Warning: there are mild spoilers ahead.)
