Daredevil #6

Daredevil #6For 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).

Daredevil - Regrets Only

After helping Karen (Deborah Ann Woll) bully Foggy (Elden Henson) into a war with the District Attorney by representing the Punisher (Jon Bernthal), Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) abandons his team to spend the evening with Elektra (Elodie Yung) and help her steal an important ledger from the Roxxon corporation during a party. Can you say spy sequence? By the end of the episode we don’t trust Elektra any more than Matt does, but we also have to admit that the two work well together (both in and out of costume).

Daredevil - Kinbaku

“Kinbaku” kicks off the second arc of Daredevil‘s Second Season with the introduction of Matt Murdock‘s (Charlie Cox) college girlfriend Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung) who is in need of a lawyer (or so she claims). From their reunion in Matt’s apartment it’s obvious the pair didn’t part on the best of terms (as the flashbacks will prove). For what Elektra is really after, however, we’ll have to wait a little further into the season because Elektra hasn’t come looking for Matt Murdock, exactly, but for Daredevil.

Daredevil - Penny and Dime

“New York’s Finest” and “Penny and Dime” wrap-up the initial arc of Daredevil‘s Second Season. Opening with Daredevil (Charlie Cox) held captive by the Punisher (Jon Bernthal) on the roof of a tenement building, “New York’s Finest” is mostly a debate between the two heroes. Given the fallout with Grotto (McCaleb Burnett), and the District Attorney’s threat to throw Nelson & Murdock under the bus for the failed sting, Karen (Deborah Ann Woll) will be motivated to do some digging into the past of both District Attorney Reyes (Michelle Hurd) and Frank Castle which will eventually lead the legal assistant into a new career when Nelson & Mudrock implodes (again). Concern for his missing partner will lead Foggy (Elden Henson) to reach out to Claire (Rosario Dawson, who has a much smaller role this season).

Daredevil - Dogs to a Gunfight

While Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) recovers from getting shot in the head pointblank by the Punisher (Jon Bernthal), Foggy (Elden Henson) and Karen (Deborah Ann Woll) work to get their client (McCaleb Burnett) the best deal possible with an opportunistic District Attorney (Michelle Hurd) who decides to use the man for bait to lure out the city’s new vigilante. Foggy actually steals the episode’s biggest heroic moment while standing up to Miss Reyes and not letting the D.A. push him around.
