Before Murdock could learn more, FBI agents arrive at the deck and start to search for Murdock, thinking that he is one of the Albanians. En route to the exit, Murdock takes down several agents, however, remained agents put him in open confrontation and Murdock defeats all of them.
At Page's office, she informs Ellison that the Presidential Hotel was owned by Rostam Kazemi who was attacked by criminals.
