John Healy walks into a bowling alley late at night, approaches the on-duty attendant, and asks for some shoes. She tells him that the alley is closed; only Prohashka, a gangster who worked out a special arrangement with the owner, is allowed to stay after hours. Healy approaches Prohashka about joining his game, but it turns out this is all pretense as Wilson Fisk has hired him to kill Prohashka. He promptly disables Prohashka's two bodyguards then draws his gun, which he just [[Recap/Daredevil2015S1E1IntoTheRing purchased from Turk Barrett]] 36 hours earlier. He pulls the trigger...and the gun promptly jams ([[GilliganCut in spite of Turk's promise that it wouldn't]]). After a bout of fisticuffs, Healy breaks Prohashka's arms, then finishes him off by crushing his head with a bowling ball. As Healy catches his breath, he looks up and sees the lone employee has called 911 to summon the police. Healy hides the useless gun in a pinball machine, then surrenders to the police when they arrive and demands a lawyer.

Sitting on a bench outside the local church, Matt Murdock is recognized by Father Lantom, who has deduced that Matt is Jack Murdock's son. Lantom invites Matt to take confession, or even a latte, but Matt declines the chance to talk.

At Nelson & Murdock, Karen is already in and when Foggy arrives, followed shortly after by Matt. The three banter about Karen's salary and a visible bruise Matt has around his right eye, which he claims is from tripping. They're interrupted by a knock at the door...from James Wesley. Wesley refuses to give his name or talk about Confederated Global, the multinational corporation he claims he works for, but he seems to know a lot about Matt, Foggy, and Karen's histories. Wesley says he wants to put the firm on a generous retainer in exchange for their services and discretion, but first they must take on a case: defending Healy. Foggy is eager to accept Wesley's money, but Matt is suspicious after Wesley recognizes Karen from his previous attempts to have her killed. Matt follows Wesley out of the office, tailing him for a few blocks until he gets into the middle vehicle in a convoy of three Cadillac Escalades. He sits down across from Fisk and assures him that "It's been taken care of." Matt stands for a moment as the Cadillacs drive away, then turns to walk back from the office, while feeling one of his wounds reopening up from stress, leaving a small bloodstain on his shirt.

At Nelson & Murdock, Karen is already in and when looking at a summons she's received in the mail. She quickly stashes the summons in her purse as Foggy arrives, followed shortly after by Matt. The three banter about Karen's salary and a visible bruise Matt has around his right eye, eye from last night's fight with the Russians, which he claims is from tripping. They're interrupted by a knock at the door...door from a client.

Owlsley is somewhat desperate to meet with Wilson Fisk, believing the Healy situation is spinning out of control and he should simply be killed, but Wesley says they can't afford to leave any more bodies in light of everyone they killed to silence the Union Allied matter, so using a couple of clean lawyers is the most effective way of clearing things up. Karen meets with Jennifer Fisher, the widow of Daniel Fisher, who is moving out of New York with her children. Jennifer feels guilty for pushing her husband to do the right thing, and though Karen begs for help in exposing the conspiracy around Union Allied, Jennifer has already signed the payoff contract. Not knowing where else to go for help, Karen visits Ben at the Bulletin, claiming to have more on the Union Allied story.

In court, the jury returns from deliberation, but Matt's super senses alert him in advance that the jury is hung, and though multiple hung juries would normally result in a retrial, Matt is confident that Wesley and his people will make sure the case goes away. Sure enough, Healy goes free a few nights later, but Matt confronts him in his vigilante outfit, beats him into submission and tortures him until Healy gives up the name of Wesley's employer: Wilson Fisk. But then the professional killer starts shaking in fear, as he tells Matt that Fisk kills individuals who give up his name, as well as [[AndYourLittleDogToo everyone they care about]]. Despairingly, Healy calls Matt a coward, and tells him he should just have killed him instead of making him talk, and then, without hesitating, he commits suicide by impaling his head on a spike, much to Matt's shock.

Wesley goes to the bowling alley and retrieves Healy's gun from its hiding place. At Nelson & Murdock, the pair settles their disagreement over the case and come up with a strategy for the defense. Matt suggests that Karen investigate Confederated Global, but Karen has left the office to answer a summons from Union Allied's lawyers. Union Allied which is in the process of being dissolved argues that Karen breached her non-disclosure agreements by releasing the pension file to the media and could be sued. Instead, they agree to pay her six months' salary in exchange for her silence, as long as she signs a contract to that effect.

Ben visits Metro-General to visit his wife. Although the Bulletin's health insurance doesn't cover Doris's continued treatment, he manages to petition the hospital's administrator Shirley Benson into buying him another week of care so he can have extra time to file appeals. Later, he visits Doris's private room, though she's not awake. At Nelson & Murdock, Foggy gripes about their poor office equipment as the team puts together Healy's defense. Karen digs up information on Confederated Globa, but is only able to find a string of shell companies. When Matt reminds her to not take any long lunch breaks, she doesn't mention the Union Allied payoff. Some time later, Healy's case goes to trial, but while Foggy is giving the opening statement, Matt observes that one of the jurors becomes agitated when Wesley enters the courtroom.

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: When Turk is selling the gun to Healy, the guns are shown being transported magazines in. This is not a smart move as that makes it impossible to verify if the weapon is unloaded. It's also implied the gun was probably a low quality knock-off that was not stored and maintained properly after it left the factory, so there's also a failure on Healy's part in not test-firing the gun before the hit (season two establishes that Turk specializes in selling extremely cheap and unreliable guns that are at their deadliest when used to bludgeon someone to death).
