Daredevil returns to New York with the pages of the Darkhold that were sought by the Sons of the Serpent in hand and consults Dr. Strange. Strange explains that the ancient name of the Serpent is written in the Darkhold's pages granting persuasive abilities and warns Daredevil about upsetting Satana, who was under the impression that the pages were destroyed. .
Daredevil contemplates how overwhelming his life has become and slips into depression. Then he quickly gets over it.
Murdock pays a visit to Kirsten McDuffie and after some flirtatious banter admits to being Daredevil and asks her for some assistance. The two of them broadcast a message to the citizens of New York revealing the conspiring Jester and his association with the Sons of the Serpent. Daredevil threatens to destroy the Darkhold pages unless the Sons deliver Jester to his custody and Kirsten reads out the ancient Serpent name to get the Son's undivided attention. She continues her speech to the masses explaining the Sons of the Serpent's plan of planting seeds of hate and suggests that people should rise above their hate while Daredevil tracks down Jester.
After delivering Jester to the police he rushes to the aid of Kirstin, who is being shot at by a Serpent sniper. After Kristen's safety is secured, she receives a distraught phone call regarding Foggy Nelson.
