For the first time since Matt Murdock reset reality to hide his dual identity, both the lawyer and Daredevil have run-ins with Elektra. Murdock’s evening with his ex in a dive bar goes far better than the vigilante’s as Elektra proceeds to hold nothing back while beating Daredevil bloody (unaware who is under the mask).
Daredevil #6 showcases the positives and negatives of allowing Marvel Comics to reset Matt Murdock’s past. On one hand the issue provides the kind of throwdown between Daredevil and Elektra we wouldn’t have gotten before such a change. On the other hand such a move messes the waters of Daredevil’s past with one of key characters in it (he’s not even sure just what version of events Elektra remembers of her time with what she now believes are two separate individuals).
Five-0 is called in when a babysitter (Cassi Thomson) is abducted by a vigilante targeting those who have gotten away with crimes. Given the abductor’s technical expertise, Five-0 calls in their own part-time computer genius allowing Martin Starr to return to the show as Toast, who McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) sadly rips away from his all-too-brief encounter with the alluring Ciara Hanna.
