The next morning, Matt meets up with Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), his best friend, fellow lawyer and new business partner, to sign a lease on a small office for their law firm Nelson & Murdock, getting a good price due to the general damage and reconstruction going on in Hell's Kitchen after [[Film/TheAvengers2012 "the incident"]]. Now they only need clients, but that's been difficult due to Matt's insistence they only defend the innocent; at this point, he'd settle for a single client.

A disparate group of organized criminals meet on the roof of a partially-constructed building: elderly financial expert Leland Owlsley (Bob Gunton), Russian mobsters Anatoly and Vladimir Ranskahov (Gideon Emery and Nikolai Nikoleff), Yakuza enforcer Nobu Yoshioka (Peter Shinkoda), and elderly Chinese drug manufacturer Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho). Wesley is the last to arrive as a representative of Wilson Fisk, though he refuses to allow Fisk's name to be spoken aloud. When Wesley asks why the Russians are short on their payments, they explain that a shipment was stopped by a masked vigilante in black. Owlsley is dismissive, but Wesley shows more interest in this vigilante and demands details. The Russians get defensive when the others seem dubious about the tale and when it's mentioned that Fisk will de displeased with them, and they fire back by asking about the situation with someone named "Prohaska", which they're just as displeased about. The scene ends with Wesley saying that his organization is handling Prohaska, but the Russians don't seem to have been placated.

In 2014, Matt Murdock visits the Hell's Kitchen church his father attended and takes confession. He tells the priest, Father Lantom, about his father's record as a "tough as oak" boxer, and how sometimes Jack would "let the devil out" on his opponents. Matt didn't understand what that meant at the time, but he does now. When Lantom asks what Matt has done that he wants to confess, Matt admits that he doesn't want forgiveness for what he's done, but rather what he's going to do.

That first client comes in the form of Karen Page, a woman found in her apartment by police, standing over a dead body and holding a bloody knife, and arrested despite her tearful pleas of innocence. Matt and Foggy are tipped off to the potential client by Sgt. Brett Mahoney, a police officer at the New York City Police Department's 15th Precinct and childhood friend of Foggy's (Foggy regularly bribes Brett with cigars for his mother Bess exchange for information), and the pair are able to convince Karen to hire the firm and be their first client. In tears, Karen explains that she and the victim, Daniel Fisher, work for a construction firm called Union Allied, and after meeting up for drinks the night before, she blacked out and woke up a moment before the police arrived. From her heartbeat, Matt can tell she's innocent.

A middle-aged corrections guard named Clyde Furnum is eating lunch in Abe Lebewohl Park when he's approached by James Wesley. Wesley explains that his employer's organization has acquired the $30,000 debt that Farnum owes to Rigoletto, a mobster who has recently "retired"; and shows him a live tablet image of Clyde's daughter Tracy in a park with an assassin stationed not ten yards away from her, who they are going to give a kill order to if Clyde doesn't use his position to do a job.

Meanwhile, at the Nelson & Murdock office, Matt is beginning to think something's amiss: if the case against Karen is so open-and-shut, why haven't the police formally charged her or publicized the arrest? Foggy suspects Matt's reluctance is because Karen is just his type (a beautiful woman of "questionable character"), but he agrees to dig deeper into the matter.

Matt's place is sparse and cheap, partially because of a bright and gaudy electronic billboard on the building across the street. After Karen changes into one of Matt's dress shirts, they talk about his blindness, and Matt admits that he misses his sight. Their talk turns to the Union Allied business, and Matt's theory that Karen was framed – rather than killed outright – because she has something the conspirators want, and the something is a copy of the pension file. Karen denies it, but Matt senses the lie.

A few days later, the Union Allied story is front page news in the ''Bulletin''. Over the phone, Wesley assures Wilson Fisk that the scandal won't be linked to their operation, since Owlsley has cleared out the dirty money and the key people with evidence, such as Clyde, Rance, and Karen's boss, have been or will be dealt with. Farnum is shot in his basement and his death staged as a suicide, Rance is hanged in his jail cell with a bedsheet, and Karen's boss is force fed a lethal dosage of pills. Fisk is curious about how Rance was subdued, but tells Wesley to leave Karen alone, since she doesn't know anything beyond what has already been exposed, and to keep an eye on Nelson & Murdock in case they'll be useful in the future.

Karen cooks Matt and Foggy a celebratory meal to celebrate her acquittal, and offers to work at Nelson & Murdock as a secretary. However, despite the firm's victory, the criminal enterprise is continuing unabated. That night, Matt waits on the rooftops of Hell's Kitchen in his vigilante suit and listens for trouble; hearing the sound of a child being abducted from his father by the Russians, Matt pulls on his mask and goes to work.
