Exactly, really down played her contributions and undercut her as the figure tying all four together.

I've had this theory that Karen probably will be taking over as crossover character since she's coming over from Daredevil as well to be on The Punisher, and there's seeds for her to make possible appearances on Jessica Jones season 2 with the new bond she's formed with Trish.
I don't think there'll be just one character in every series anymore. Now that the event of them meeting is over, who pops up and where will be completely open.

I didn't mind the scene or the idea. I like how it gives Danny an new insight about how to proceed. We've seen the "interrogation small fish to get to the big fish" play out a lot. So to go right to the top was refreshing. The problem was Cole's character gain no sympathy, you got a little bit in his last scene but not enough. So you never feel bad for him because he made his own decision. If they wrote him as someone who was scared, remorseful, and had no choice then it would have worked. But it seemed pretty obvious that he signed up knowing what he was getting into.

It'd have been great if we got a scene where Claire at least mentioned to both Luke and Danny (when they had the pow wow) that she knew another hero (alluding to DD) that she once helped.

It'd have been useful and made sense.

Likely. Depends on what the negotiations go like and what the actors' shooting schedules are like.
