Four Pages to the end: A full page panel with the "body" of Elektra in a pool of blood with pointed ears and chin that is ribbed for her pleasure. Definately a Skrull.

Three and two pages to the end: This is spread of two pages and is only two panels. The Avengers gathered around the "body" of Electra with Iron Fist look towards the body and on the second panel turned towards the Avengers asking "What--What does this mean?"

Last Page is five panels. The first panel is the outside of Dr. Stranges sanctuary with a word balloon from Jessica asking Wong "Are they okay?" The second panel has Jess feeding the baby and Wong in the background...
Jess: Is my husband okay?
Wong: I think so.
Jess: You think?
Wong: They're alive.

Panel three Jess and the baby.
Jess: Okay then.

Panel four a close up of the baby and his bottle.

Panel five: a closer look at the baby with his eyes open with the same look that Maya had when she was being controlled by "Electra" and with a green tint"

And the art sucks in this issue. Just my opinion and not really a Spoiler.
everyone was right a skrull

The spoilers you posted were right, I was wrong on your credibility in this instance, and thanks for forwarding this juicy info to the boards for those of us who wanted it.

This does explain the whole discrepancy regarding "good" Elektra's behavior in Millar's Wolverine and Bendis's Daredevil (helping Logan trash the Hand, then taking it over and using it to do things like help Matt fight Bullseye and later protect Foggy Nelson) and "bad" Elektra in New Avengers (where she's a vicious crimelord and assassination broker without conscience).

The Jessica Jones part of the reveal is...well, it's just weird, since it amounts to Bendis retconning what seemed to be an honest, genuine marriage storyline at the time. (Of course, we don't know when the swap took place). For that matter, are we meant to assume that Jessica Jones was ever and always a Skrull, or that she's been replaced behind the scenes?
Is the fact that the Skrulls so far are both female characters -- and super-character love-interests with super-careers of their own -- important?
