Later still, Elektra's napping in a bedroom upstairs. I have no idea if this is the same day or the next. Does it matter? No, it doesn't. Suddenly, Elektra wakes up and McCabe's in the doorway with his gun raised. She reaches for her Sais and he shouts at her to get the hell out of the way because he's about to shoot this hawk out on the ledge. Blam! The hawk flings off and Goran and Abby run in and McCabe explains that the hawk has been hanging around since yesterday and he just didn't like the look of it. Elektra has a flash-forward moment and sees the Freak Krew arriving. "They're here," she grits, and leaps into action. Everyone scrambles. Elektra declares that they don't have time to get to the truck, so McCabe tells them about the cellar and a tunnel that leads out of it into the woods.
Elektra stops and looks at McCabe as he reloads the rifle. "What about you?" she asks. He looks at her and she realizes that she's basically signed his death warrant. "Shit," she says. He readies the gun and tells her to keep them safe as Elektra runs down into the cellar. The Family Goran run through a World War II bunker or something. Upstairs, McCabe sees a shadow outside his front door and he unloads a round into it. And then he rather dumbly goes right up to it and looks out the hole and sees Stone standing there, brushing buckshot off his chest like it's dust. The Family Goran makes it out of the tunnel and into…a vineyard? The hell? So McCabe raises cows AND wine? Back with McCabe…do I really need to fill you in on what happens here? McCabe bites it. Kirigi grabs McCabe's head in his hands and gleans the tunnel scenario from his brain and then orders his troops to head after the Family Goran. Once they leave, Kirigi slices off McCabe's head. I'm beginning to think this Kirigi is not such a nice guy.
Out in the woods, Typhoid's walking along, running her blue-nailed fingers over some bushes, killing everything in her path. The Family Goran is still running. Running running running. Tattoo's somewhere, taking off his robe. His tattoos are gorgeous. He sits and releases a wolf from his chest. It chases off after the Family Goran, who is STILL running. They stop when they hear growling (dumb-asses) and see the tattoo wolf glittering toward them. Then they…keep running. Elektra spots a hollowed-out tree and orders Goran and Abby into it. Stone appears then, with a big-ass club in his hand. Elektra tosses some ninja throwing stars into the trunk of a tree and smartly uses them as makeshift steps. She crouches up on a higher branch and waits for Stone to show up. Then she brings out the Sais and gets busy on his gargantuan ass.
Except for the part where she doesn't, because the second she goes to stab him in the back, her Sai just…breaks off. Because apparently, Stone? IS ACTUALLY MADE OF STONE. He knocks her out of the way with one punch as Abby and Goran watch from their hiding place. Elektra gets up, only to have Stone toss his club at her. She evades it by skimming up the tree, but the club has actually felled the tree, so she thinks quickly and winds up riding it down until it lands directly on Stone, crushing him. Well, that was easier than expected. Goran and Abby run off as Stone explodes into the greenish-yellow light and his fellow Krew-members look around all, "Whuh-huh?"
McCabe rightly assumes that Elektra's crashing; he said she'd crash and now she is. She just wants to get them someplace safe so they have a chance. McCabe, right again, says they're already dead. Elektra, becoming softer by the minute, just says that she'll need passports and tickets. After some deserved snarkiness, McCabe just tells Elektra to get inside the house. Then he looks out at his stupid bovines and sees a hawk perched on a fencepost. He looks concerned and puts the rifle on his shoulder. Inside the house, Goran and Abby are whispering about secrets and lying and how they can't tell Elektra the truth and how Abby thinks Elektra's her friend and I wouldn't go so far as to call her your friend, girlie, seeing as up until about twenty-four hours ago, she was assigned to kill your ass. Abby's hair, by the way, is now brown and has bangs, like, way to slam us over the head with her being a little Elektra, huh? Speaking of Elektra, she's in the kitchen, sharpening her Sais, as you do, when she hears a child's voice calling her name. She turns, and Young Elektra is standing at the entrance to the basement. As Young Elektra's voice turns into Abby's, she explains that she's changed her appearance, just like Elektra told her to. Guess McCabe had Chestnut Dye #486 in the medicine cabinet, huh? He's so handy that way.
Elektra goes back to sharpening her Sais, and Abby walks over and asks Elektra if she'll show her how to use them because she wants to learn how to defend herself. "They're offensive weapons," grits Elektra. "They're meant for killing." Abby wants to be just like Elektra, but Elektra doesn't think this is a good idea, so she decides, instead, to teach Abby how to do that meditating-'til-you-see-the-future thing called kimagure. They sit down and close their eyes and Abby's totally not into it and she's fidgeting and making faces while Elektra breathes deeply until finally, Elektra opens her eyes and goes, "BAH!" and they erupt in a fit of giggles just like the little girls they are. Goran enters and sees this, and his heart warms to the idea of Elektra as a replacement mommy for his daughter even though she kills people and stuff.
Later, Elektra's drifting along on the porch. She does a lot of porch drifting, doesn't she? Goran comes out and she asks how he's doing. Man, she's gone from stone-hearted assassin who glowers at everyone to sepia-toned sweetness who's more concerned about the welfare of others than her own. Goran says that they're still alive, so thanks for that. Elektra's like, oh, dude, don't thank me. You don't know what I was really-- "What you were doing there?" he interjects. "Sure I do. You were there to kill us. I knew it as soon as you took the Wheelwright place." She kind of looks away, and then he takes her hand and she says warningly, "I'm not a good person to get involved with." He doesn't seem to care, really, and just leans forward and lays one on her. God, he's so sexy. I'm sorry. But it's true. They kiss for a few seconds until finally Elektra pulls away. "I'm sorry," he says. "Yeah," she says, smiling, "I hated that." Heh. She walks inside and he kind of looks out at the cows as if to say, "Well, I'm not getting laid, so I might as well…milk something?"
