With the FBI having a list of nearly all of Fisk's employees involved in criminal activity, they performed a mass arrest. Notable arrests included Turk Barrett, Parish Landman, Caldwell and multiple corrupt cops. Within hours, the arrests were massive news, causing WHiH World News to report on the arrest of Senator Randolph Cherryh, who insisted he and Fisk were innocent of all crimes.[6]

The armored truck and the other FBI and police vehicles transporting Fisk were then stopped on a bridge by a semi-truck. Multiple armored teams emerged from the truck and killed the police officers. Once they cleared the bridge, they walked towards the truck and banged on the door. One of the two guards inside the truck threatened to kill Fisk if they would not back away from the door. In response to this threat, the second guard, whom had been paid off by Fisk, killed the first guard. Fisk was then brought to the semi-truck. As he entered the truck, he told his team to take everyone out that tried to follow him.[6]

Daredevil searches for Wilson Fisk

"You were right. What you told me over the radio that night. Not everyone deserves a happy ending."

After seeing the news of Fisk's escape, Karen Page, Matt Murdock, and Foggy Nelson left the office in a hurry. Page got into a cab to head home and Nelson, about to get into the cab with her, shut the door as the cab drove off. Nelson began urging Murdock not to go after Fisk, calling him a lunatic. In response, Murdock asked Nelson to trust him, even though he had not yet earned Nelson's trust back.

Murdock then went to Melvin Potter's Workshop to receive his Daredevil Suit. As Murdock was in a rush, he was informal in giving thanks to Melvin. Melvin Potter stopped Murdock when he tried to close the Garment box, asking for reassurance that Murdock would keep his promise to keep him and Betsy Beatty safe from Fisk. Murdock responded by saying that he made Potter a promise and that he intended to keep it.[6]
