‘Echo’ Post-Credit Scene Explained: Here’s How It’s Connected to ‘Daredevil: Born Again’


All five episodes of ‘Echo’ are now available, showcasing Maya Lopez reconciling with her family and confronting Kingpin in a climactic battle. Surprisingly, the confrontation ends in a draw as Maya, choosing not to take Kingpin’s life, opts instead to heal him. While the concluding scene revolves around Echo and her family, the show includes a noteworthy post-credit scene that could be linked to ‘Daredevil: Born Again.’ Let’s delve into its significance.

  • Article Breakdown:
  • The post-credit scene in ‘Echo’ strongly suggests that Kingpin is gearing up for a mayoral run in New York City.
  • This development could potentially connect to ‘Daredevil: Born Again,’ considering the theme of reinvention for both Matt and Wilson in the upcoming show.

‘Echo’ concludes with a post-credit scene focused on Kingpin

Post-credit scenes have become a staple in the MCU since ‘WandaVision,’ but ‘Echo’ stands out with a seamlessly connected scene. In the final clash, Maya taps into her mother’s healing powers, delving into Kingpin’s memories and seemingly prompting a transformation. Kingpin confronts painful recollections, including his father’s abuse and his monstrous actions witnessed by young Maya.

Maya is in tears as Kingpin’s painful memories unfold, emanating compassion. However, Kingpin’s screams reveal his resistance to becoming what Maya envisions—a hero. He vehemently asserts his identity as a monster, suggesting that goodness is beyond his grasp.

Upon returning to reality, Kingpin kneels with Maya, questioning the effects of her actions. Instead of resorting to violence, both parties avoid bloodshed, with Kingpin deciding to leave for New York.

The post-credit scene shifts to Kingpin in his private plane, organizing a meeting with his criminal associates. The discussion likely centers around the challenges arising from Echo’s departure and her interference with his operations. Meanwhile, Kingpin contemplates the New York mayoral race, influenced by news commentators discussing the need for a tenacious leader unafraid to use force for the city’s welfare.

Following the TV segment, Kingpin appears contemplative, suggesting a genuine consideration of entering the mayoral race.
