Discover Possible Reasons Behind The Absence Of Deborah Ann Woll And Elden Henson As Karen Page And Foggy Nelson In The “Born Again” Series
As a fan, it is disheartening to see that Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson are not reprising their roles as Karen Page and Foggy Nelson in the “Born Again” series. Both actors were exceptional in their portrayals of the characters in the Netflix series. While we hope they return someday, understanding the reasons behind their absence might help us cope.
Much like how Peter Parker was separated from Ned and MJ in “No Way Home,” it seems necessary for Matt Murdock to take a break from Karen and Foggy to interact with new characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Both Matt and Peter need fresh allies and enemies, and they find themselves in similar situations. Matt’s appearance in “She-Hulk” is a prime example of him integrating into the MCU.
One possible explanation for the absence of Foggy and Karen in “Born Again” is that they are not working at Nelson, Murdock, and Page during the series, as hinted at in the conclusion of “Daredevil” Season 3. Foggy and Marcie may have gone to San Francisco for business related to Hogarth, only to experience the blip. After being brought back, they may have chosen to stay in San Francisco, get married, and start their own practice after passing the California state bar. This idea is inspired by a Mark Waid storyline where Daredevil and Foggy were in San Francisco while Foggy battled cancer, and could be an interesting plot seed for future episodes.
Meanwhile, Karen may have decided to confront her father after the blip, refusing to take no for an answer, and arriving unannounced at his Vermont home. In light of the blip, she may have convinced him to address the unresolved issues surrounding her brother’s death and move on, as life is too short. Karen might have temporarily worked in her father’s diner to help rebuild the business, further explaining her absence from the series.
While it is unfortunate that Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson are not reprising their roles as Karen Page and Foggy Nelson in “Born Again,” their absence may pave the way for Matt Murdock to form new relationships and interact with other characters in the MCU. By exploring possible reasons behind their separation, fans can find solace in knowing that these beloved characters may still be thriving in their own storylines, and may one day return to the screen.
