The Jester threatens to reveal Daredevil’s secret identity…on the George Washington Bridge! With such a public outing at stake, Matt Murdock acts recklessly in his bid for control. NYPD vs. Daredevil! But why is the hero being hunted by the law?
The Jester breaks into a jewelry store and swipes some jewels. However as soon as he's about to escape he's spotted by police. He throws the jewels at them and escapes saying he's only stealing for the thrill. He thinks that if the world were to learn his true identity, he's be in trouble and hatches a plan to make it seem as id Daredevil killed Jonathan Powers (his alter-ego). Then no one would suspect him.
Meanwhile, Daredevil is moping around the city pining for Karen page. Karen left him after he told her they could never be married. He returns home as Jonathan Powers (The Jester) marches into a Police station and announces that he's going to reveal the true identity of Daredevil on the George Washington Bridge at midnight. It's a slow news day so word of this travels fast and soon reaches Matt's ears who immediately suits up to check it out.
Powers and DD arrive at the bridge at the same time. Powers feigns the need for help and as Daredevil rushes to his aid, Powers socks him and they start brawling. The press arrives to see Daredevil wailing away on Powers and they start snapping photos thinking Daredevil is trying to silence Powers. They continue to battle and they struggle over to the edge of the bridge where Powers pushes himself over the edge. He plummets to the water and disappears. Secretly Powers slips into his submarine. While Daredevil searches for him, the reporters and cops who are there start thinking Daredevil is a murderer.
Foggy is disgusted by what he's seen on TV, then he is really disgusted when he sees his fiance Debbie protesting in a rally. Meanwhile The Jester has broken into a TV Studio and is forcing them to broadcast his image all over the city. He states that he will perform a public service and capture Daredevil.
Daredevil heads to the studio bus is distracted by a beeping in his ear. It leads him to Central Park and The Jester who knocks Daredevil out with some gas and motions to the police who he's called to come get Daredevil and arrest him!
