Elektra confronts the man who killed her father, and before taking his life, tells him the story of her life.
Elektra is approached by SHIELD Agent Stanley Dreyfuss in a Paris cafe. He offers her a fee to take a mission on behalf of SHIELD. Once she hears the mission, which is told to her via cellphone by Nick Fury himself, she is suspicious, taking the retainer fee with her, and without giving her answer as to whether she accepts the commission. The mission is to assassinate Iraq's ruler, who is a puppet of HYDRA. If she is to accept, she must meet Fury in Baghdad.
Agents Dreyfuss and Molly Stiles await Elektra in Baghdad, but a HYDRA death squad lurks in the shadows. Elektra kills them all, and turns on Dreyfuss, suspicious that she was set up. In a panic, Dreyfuss puts a bullet through Elektra's head.
