"You're looking at four counts of murder. That's a death penalty crime in Ohio."
Roy Hardin to Frank Castle[src]

The Ambush at the Tides Motel was an open confrontation between Frank Castle and Marlena Olin.


"The only reason you're around right now is because of me. You see, they're comin' after us both now. That's where you got lucky. See, the way I operate, the way I handle situations like this I kill the enemy before they get to me. That's what I do."
Frank Castle to Amy Bendix[src]

Waiting for Sergei Konchevsky at the Lola's Roadhouse, Amy Bendix spotted Marlena Olin and her crew and headed to the bathroom where she attempted to escape. However, she was caught and beaten by Olin but before she could capture Bendix, she was saved by Frank Castle. After defeating Olin and her partners, Bendix convinced Castle to help her to avoid the hostiles.

Walking through the crowd at the bar, Castle confronted mercenaries in the brutal fight. During the confrontation, mercenaries managed to kill Ringo and wound Beth Quinn. When all mercenaries were taken down by Castle, he together with Bendix took Quinn and Bendix to his van and drove away from the bar, killing the mercenaries who chased him.[2] Leaving Quinn under the care of paramedics in Ecorse Hope Hospital, Castle with Bendix left Michigan and drove to Ohio. Castle decided to take shelter in Larkville where they stopped in the Tides Motel.

Pilgrim learned about Olin's failure and arrived to Lola's Roadhouse where he ordered Ferrara to cover the incident and find Castle and Bendix. He personally visited Quinn in the hospital and forced her to tell him about Castle, threatening her son. Knowing Castle's alias "Pete Castiglione", Pilgrim's hacker managed to track down his van to Larkville and Pilgrim ordered Olin to deal with them.[3]
