Foggy Nelson, Becky Blake, and Dakota North watch a closed-circuit recording of Daredevil killing Bullseye. Nelson blames Kingpin for Daredevil’s actions, thinking Kingpin sent Bullseye. Nelson wants to talk to Daredevil, but North is skeptical about Daredevil’s willingness to talk.
White Tiger approaches Daredevil while he is on patrol in Hell’s Kitchen. She mentions that Black Tarantula, Daredevil’s appointed territorial lord for the Hand in South America, has been distant since his appointment and suggests Daredevil send him to South America. Daredevil disagrees, saying that they need to establish themselves as New York’s “protectors”.
As he walks the streets, Detective Kurtz senses the palpable fear of the regular people in Hell’s Kitchen. Elsewhere, three guys attempt to mug a man in an alley, are confronted by Daredevil and the Hand and are killed and strung up from a light pole by their feet.
In search of Daredevil, Nelson and North reach a barrier in the road and are met by White Tiger and her Hand backup. Nelson tells White Tiger he wants to see Daredevil, but she says that Daredevil doesn’t want to see him. Nelson tells White Tiger to relay to Daredevil the message that it wasn’t Norman Osborn that was “turning the screws” on them, but it was Kingpin.
In Shadowland, Daredevil collapses and suffers an intense internal struggle in which a darker side appears to have an edge. Meanwhile, as Nelson and North head back from their failed attempt to contact Daredevil, they are attacked by a group of black-clad ninjas. At the Wall of the Chaste, Master Izo discusses Daredevil’s true intentions with the Hand with . . . Elektra.
