Issue SummarySummary by Gloria Porta
Daredevil is engaged in an unrelenting razzia against the underworld, in search for any information that might lead him to Mr. Fear (Larry Cranston). Sometime later, Turk and other thugs discuss the situation: while the others consider Mr. Fear a valid leader, Turk has his doubts... he knows, from experience, that it is not wise to push the Crimson Vigilante too far. After the other guys leave, Turk phones a mysterious third party offering his help.
We go back three days in time: Matt and Foggy go to the Detention Center to see Milla, and are shocked to find that she has been sedated and strapped to her bed. Milla herself is confused and subject to swinging moods, and cannot remember clearly what happened. Assistant D.A. Algren gets there and talks with Milla's counselors: in spite of their pleading, Algreen says that, being a homicide case, can't even consider releasing Milla on bail without a psychological evaluation.
Murdock and Nelson return to their firm's premises, Matt in a wretched mood. Dakota enters Matt's office to find a rather hostile reception, and has to nip Matt's tantrum in the bud. After Matt excuses himself, she tells him that she's got a connection in the NYPD which might be helpful to find about Mr. Fear, and suggests to a despairing Matt that Milla doesn't have to be on her own, as Daredevil may be pretty able to make her company.
So Daredevil manages to sneak into Milla's cell to spend the night with her, and helps his wife to ease her mind, giving her some tips so she'll be able to remain calm and in control of herself during her evaluation.
The day after, Matt meets the detective who is Dakota's contact in the police. The man is frank to Daredevil, and tells him that he didn't like his beating of cops a few days ago, but he doesn't warm to the Registration Act, either, and he owes Dakota plenty. It turns that the man who died at Cranston's appartment was a former acquaintance of his at Empire State university, a certain Dante V. Govich. Govich was a chemistry scholar with a disreputable interest in drugs... Someone who no doubt helped Fear in developing his new chemicals: by murdering him, Cranston not only gets rid of an accomplice, but also makes dissapear the one person capable of producing an antidote to the drugs he's using.
Milla fails at the psychological evaluation when she looses her cool and attempts to attack her examiner. When a hearing is conducted shortly afterwards and the judge orders a heavily sedated Milla to be taken to Bellevue, Matt responds angrily and the judge has him taken in custody for contempt in court.
We return to the present, with Daredevil terrorizing lowlifes in search for information. he's not aware that he's being observed from a distance by Turk and someone else: a man who wants to fill the void cause by Wilson Fisk's absence... The Hood.
