Elektra

Abby's in bed, recuperating. Elektra enters and takes a seat on the bed. She asks Abby what's next, seeing as no one's after her anymore. "Back to school?" she asks. Abby's like, HELL NO. Goran laughs. Abby suddenly hugs Elektra, and for a second, it's obvious that Elektra's totally at a loss as to what to do. "You gave me my life back," says Abby. Elektra relaxes into the hug and says, "You gave me mine." Yeah, I called that too. "Will I see you again?" asks Abby. "We'll find each other," says Elektra, borrowing her own line from Daredevil. She walks off as Goran stares wistfully after her. Or maybe he's just pondering what kind of car to buy with his paycheck. I can't tell. He and Abby share a glance as Elektra walks out of the house. She stops to look back at it and says, "Please don't let her be like me." "Why not?" says Stick, who has an annoying habit of inexplicably showing up suddenly. "You didn't turn out so bad." Elektra says she doesn't want things to be as hard for Abby as they were for her. "Anyway, your second life is never the same as your first, is it?" she says. "Sometimes," says Stick, "it's even better." She bows to him, and he returns the bow. She smiles and walks out through the gates of her house with the Bristow swagger firmly intact.

Next on Elektra: Heh. Who am I kidding? There is no "next on Elektra" because if there's another Elektra movie, I will hunt down the filmmakers and teach them the lesson of Thou Shall Not Injure Thy Audience In This Manner Lest Ye Want To Be Smacked About The Head And Shoulders With A Sheaf Of Wet Wheat, Beeyotches.

Elektra

Then she's whimpering and coughing and Kirigi walks over to her. "You're slipping, Elektra. Come on, let's go." He stands over her. "Push, push, push." Oh, dude. That was the WRONG thing to say. Of course, we the audience can't be allowed to remember the "push, push, push" moment from earlier in the film so, right at that moment, we have to go back to the scene where the adult Elektra comes out of the water and sees her father say, "Keep going, Elektra. Keep going. Push, push, push." At that same moment, Elektra gets a flash of Abby going down over in Typhoid's clutches. Suddenly, she comes to. "Don't worry, Elektra," says Kirigi. "I'll take good care of her." That does it. Elektra grabs her Sai and at the same moment that Kirigi does one of his Zen-master flying techniques to deliver his final blow, Elektra calmly just drives her Sai through his solar plexus. Then she lifts him up over her head and throws him down into the well where he explodes into the greenish-yellow smoke.

Elektra uses her flash-forward technique and finds Abby and Typhoid. Then she flips one of her Sais through one of the maze walls and, miraculously, it finds Typhoid's head about two miles away. Greenish-yellow smoke abounds. Elektra runs to rescue Abby, who's looking rather gray at the moment. Elektra lifts her up and carries her to the house. Where does she carry her in the house? Why, up to her dead mother's room, of course. Because this movie is nothing if not subtle. Elektra lays Abby on the bed and turns on the light, because not only do abandoned houses have operational gas, they also have their electricity turned on.

Elektra tries to revive Abby by shaking her face and ordering her to listen up, but that doesn't work, so she sits down on the bed and cries, because THAT'S helping. Then she takes Abby's hand in hers. Nothing. Finally, Elektra brings her hands up to her lips and we get a flash back to the day that Stick rubbed his hands together and brought Elektra back to life. Elektra starts rubbing her hands together and then she puts one hand on Abby's head and the other on her stomach. "Hey, Warrior Girl," she says. "Come here. Come here, Abby. I just found you…" This doesn't seem to be working either, so Elektra finally just breaks down in sobs. And this, of course, is what brings Abby gasping back to life. She falls back on the pillow and weakly looks at Elektra. "Hi," she whispers. Heh. Elektra looks down at her own shaking hands and realizes what she's done and then she puts them on either side of Abby's face. Aw.

The next thing we see is Elektra, walking toward a mirror covered by a sheet. She removes it, and the person looking back at her looks a hell of a lot less angry than the one we met at the beginning of the movie. Goran walks in, and she walks over to him. "Thank you," he says. "Take good care of her," she says. They kiss one final time and Elektra pulls back and says, "Sorry," and Goran says, "Not as sorry as I am about taking this movie that I basically PLAY THE GIRL IN." Or he just says, "Yeah, I hated that," because ha ha isn't it funny when we repeat things from earlier in the movie? Goran walks off and Elektra touches some stuff on her mother's vanity and then leaves the room.
