Punisher meets Jason Hunt, a young man whose father was murdered alongside Frank's family. With Hector Montoya out on parole, Punisher and Jason vow to see the mobster six feet under. But complications arise- Daredevil makes an untimely appearance!
Across New York men with mob connections are mysteriously dying after receiving letters in the mail. Frank Castle meanwhile is sitting in the park marking the anniversary of his families murder when he catches and confronts a young man spying on him in the bushes. The man, Jason Hunt, is revealed to be the son of the man who was murdered alongside Castle's family. He explains to Castle what his father told him about his own mob connections on his death bed blaming one Hector Montoya as the ringleader of the killing. Hector Montoya is currently in prison but is about to be released early due to good behaviour. Jason angered by Hector's release vows revenge for his father's death despite Castle's attempts to convince him otherwise.
Deciding to tail Jason on the day of Hector's release, Castle fights three thugs who were readying to attack Jason who as he said intends to follow and shoot the just released Hector Montoya. Hector who notices Jason's tail equips himself having returned home to his family and sets off after Jason who has decided against attacking Hector. Confronting Jason the two are at a standoff when The Punisher intervenes but Hector managing to drug Castle leaves him for the dead as grabs Jason's wallet (to learn his home address) which he dropped as he scrambled to escape as Hector and Castle fought. The issues closes with Castle loosing consciousness as the three thugs he attacked earlier encircle around the now incapacitated Castle.
