Daredevil #91

Daredevil #91
Happy Turkey Day.
Well, after the extreme confusion of the last two issues, we're finally back on track, and even though nothing is revealed (to us at least) in the issue, everything previous is clarified. I was really let down by the last couple of issues, here I was expecting great things, and then, nothing. Seriously, if I wanted to have no clue what was going on, I'd read Deadman (which, by the way, is utter CRAP).
So now that we know what's going on, Lily was hired to wear a pheromone perfume and confuse Daredevil. How they figured out Karen Page's scent is unknowable, but at least Daredevil is wise to them now, and his internal monologue tells us that he's wise to it. So he lets a mock kidnapping and attempted murder scene play itself out, obviously a trap, while he waits to make his move.
When he does, he dispatches Tombstone.
And then, things get weird. Matador apparently has been ordered to kill Lily, though he agonizes over attempting to do so, claiming that he loves her, but it's probably just the pheromones. So Matt puts him out of his misery. He then gets Lily's part of the story from her...the honest truth, apparently, though as he says earlier in the issue, she's such a good actor, how would he know?
That's it. Not much happens, but at least we understand what does happen. VERY GOOD.
