Punisher episode titles
Netflix used Morse code to reveal the episode titles for “The Punisher” Season 1. Netflix

“The Punisher” doesn’t have a premiere date yet, but the episode titles may have been revealed. The Netflix drama tweeted several seemingly random phrases in Morse code Monday. It would appear that they are the episode titles.

After “Marvel’s The Defenders,” “The Punisher” is set to be the next major Marvel series released on Netflix. The series will follow Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal), the anti-hero introduced in “Daredevil” Season 2, on what’s sure to be a bloody mission for vengeance.

In chronological order, these are the translations of the codes tweeted by the official Punisher Twitter account:

  1. “3 a.m.”
  2. “Two Dead Men”
  3. “Kandahar”
  4. “Resupply”
  5. “Gunner”
  6. “The Judas Goat”
  7. “Crosshairs”
  8. “Cold Steel”
  9. “Front Toward Enemy”
  10. “Virtue of the Vicious”
  11. “Danger Close”
  12. “Home”
  13. “Memento Mori”

The tweets ended with a new promo video for “The Punisher.”

The episode titles don’t reveal too many spoilers, but they hint at what’s to come. “Kandahar” is particularly of interest to Frank Castle fans. The city is located in Afghanistan, which is where Frank served in the Marines. It sounds like it could be a flashback episode.

The finale’s title is also interesting. “Memento mori” is a latin term that literally means “remember you must die,” according to Merriam Webster. The skulls on many puritan tombstones were intended to be momento moris to remind the living to do good while they’re on earth to avoid punishment in the afterlife.

The “3 a.m.” title seems to be a lighter reference. It could be a sort of meta nod to fans. Netflix series premiere at 3 a.m. EDT, so many Marvel fans will indeed hit play on that episode at that exact time.

Though episode titles are exciting, many fans were hoping for a finalized premiere date. “The Punisher” is set to premiere in 2017, but an exact release date has yet to be announced.

The 2017 release of the Frank Castle-focused series marks a change in Netflix’s usual Marvel release schedule. For the past couple years, the streaming platform released shows in the spring and fall. “The Defenders” was the first summer release, presumably to make room for “The Punisher” in the fall, the third Marvel show to debut on Netflix this year. The gritty series is currently rumored to be premiering in November, but the subscription service has yet to confirm anything.

“The Punisher” filmed last year, but in typical Marvel fashion, spoilers are being kept locked up. However, we do have some information on the cast. “Daredevil” followers might be happy to see that Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) will still be helping Frank.

Marvel just announced Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo is also part of the cast, according to EW. She’ll play Farah Madani, a psychiatrist who has spent most of her life in the U.S. but was born in Iran. She is also the mother of a homeland security agent (Amber Rose Revah) who is targeting the Punisher.

Other cast members include Ben Barnes and Ebon Moss-Bachrach. Barnes will play Billy Russo, Frank’s best friend from the Special Forces, and Moss-Bachrach portrays Micro, a former NSA analyst.
