Synopsis for "Saved"Edit
Following Manolis' death, Karen Page finally arrives safely in New York, having hitched a ride with a pornography fanatic and huge Karen Page fan named Paulo Scorcese, who keeps her supplied with heroin in exchange for sexual favors for him. She then contacts Foggy Nelson to ask about Murdock's whereabouts. When he realizes that Paulo has been beating her, he soon insists on taking her into his home to protect her from the addict. To draw Murdock out of hiding, he arranges for a violent mental patient to be released from an asylum, dress up as Daredevil and kill Nelson. Nurse Lois is ordered to relocate so that she cannot implicate him, but she rebels and attempts to kill Urich on her own merit. Meanwhile, at Foggy's apartment, Karen is shocked to find that Paulo has tracked her to Foggy's apartment.
Murdock, who has been shadowing Urich since hearing of the articles he is writing on the Kingpin's treachery, knocks out Lois and leaves her for the authorities. He then overhears a phone call to Urich which tips him off to the plot to kill Nelson. At the same time, Page spots Scorcese once again stalking Nelson's apartment building for Karen. To prevent his killing Nelson and her, she runs outside to meet him, and they are attacked by hitmen who the Kingpin has ordered to kill anyone who emerges from the building (since they likely know he is Daredevil). The Daredevil imposter soon arrives to find Murdock waiting for him. Murdock defeats the imposter and Paulo, and saves Page. Page confesses that she was the one who gave away his secret identity, but Murdock tells her he has moved beyond the loss of his material possessions. They move into a derelict apartment, where Murdock helps her through heroin withdrawal while supporting them as a diner chef.
