Mr. Silke's attempt to take over the Kingpin's territory backfires when Vanessa, the Kingpin's estranged wife, exacts revenge on all his fellow conspirators, brutally killing everyone including her own son.
Afraid for his life, Silke turns himself into the FBI. When they refuse his request for protection he gives them the one piece of information that the Kingpin had that he thinks will save him.
That Daredevil is really a blind lawyer named Matt Murdock.
The FBI decide not to follow up on the Daredevil information. But the next day, on the cover of the biggest tabloid in the city, the headline reads: Daredevil's Secret Identity Revealed.
The secret is out.
Matt's partner, Foggy Nelson, holds off the swarm of media that have camped outside of Matt's brownstone waiting for confirmation. In an intense heart to heart, Foggy tells Matt to hang up his costume forever. Foggy believes that everything wrong with Matt's life. His anger, the death of his girlfriend Karen at the hand of Bullseye, all stem from his life as Daredevil. Matt ignores him and dons his costume and ends up fighting one of his old foes, Mr. Hyde, who attacks Matt Murdock's house in fustration over the breaking news.
Matt disappears for a couple of months. This press conference is his first public address since the news broke.
