“Matt’s a deeply moral complicated guy and she’s just the best bad girlfriend you can possibly have,” showrunner Doug Petrie tells EW. “She does everything wrong and attractive, she’s his id, the wild side. Matt is always taming his wild side. Elektra just lets it out. He’s both repulsed and deeply drawn to that.”
