Synopsis for "Born Again"Edit

While Daredevil is recovering from his injuries, Murdock's confidant, Ben Urich, a Daily Bugle reporter, is investigating his friend's plight and starts to stand vigil with Nick Manolis as his son is taken it for surgery for his terminal illness. When his son finally dies, Manolis decides to confess to Urich about the frameup and his suspicions that the Kingpin was the mastermind behind it. Nurse Lois, a crime enforcer assigned by the Kingpin to monitor Manolis and make sure he does not step out of line, responds by breaking Urich's fingers and beating Manolis nearly to death. When an unintimidated Manolis calls Urich from his hospital bed, Lois breaks into his room and strangles him, laying the receiver on his bed so Urich can hear his murder as it occurs. Rather than cowering him into submission, this goads Urich to finally come forward with his investigation, alerting his paper and the authorities of the situation at hand.
