It would not be a season of The Punisher without a massive shootout … or two. Such a scene in the second season of The Punisher was so unique and interesting that it will stand out among Frank Castle fans everywhere.
ComicBook.com brought The Punisher showrunner and executive producer Steve Lightfoot all talk about Castle, including a shooting.

During the season there were several gnarly brawls – such as beating the faces of Russian gangsters with dumbbells – in which a scene stood out especially. Castle (Jon Bernthal) and Amy Bendix (Giorgia Whigham) finally search John Pilgrim (Josh Stewart) in a room at the hotel
As soon as Castle arrives at the hotel, there is a chaos of a beautifully shot scene in which castle and pilgrims fire blindly through neighboring rooms. And to top it off, they threw in a classic Netflix fight against elevators / corridors at the back end.
In a conversation with ComicBook.com, Lightfoot mentioned that the hotel fight always had the goal of depicting the two different lives that Pilgrim had lived. In essence, one room represents Pilgrim's first future, while the other room represents the sins of a past life.
"When we developed the scripts, we came up with the idea that Pilgrim had stolen the room from the man to some extent
Jekyll room and Hyde room, "continues Lightfoot," This is similar to Frank's. We claim that we have kept this theme. When we came to the script for this episode, it somehow made sense that the fight between them took place in both rooms. "
Lightfoot went on to explain in detail how the scene was a living topic for how Castle and Pilgrim are very close to being the same person – all of them still living murderously because of their family.
" That was Always having this idea of mirroring and then just having fun with the practicability of, you're in this room, I'm in this room, how do we swap ourselves, how do we change it, "says Lightfoot," so we have a version in that Written scripts that, if you like, were driven by the subject and where we brought these guys, and then let go of the stunt coordinator and the boys. "
The producer made you should absolutely mention that they are the hotel rooms set up as a set so that they could do anything they wanted in the scene and give the stunt team free rein to come up with the ultimate cannons
