Synopsis for "The Widow Accused!"Edit

With the Scorpion apparently dead, the Black Widow has been accused of his murder, when the police try to take her in she makes an escape. However, Daredevil tracks her down and after a brief battle between the two, she agrees to turn herself in. After informing Ivan of what is going on, Matt tries to get Foggy's aid, however Foggy (through the machinations of Mr. Klein) is working against the Black Widow. Matt then decides to represent her in court.

After the first round of the counter-trial, Matt decides to check out a hunch he has as Daredevil. Traveling to the hospital where the Scorpion's body is being held, DD searches the morgue for clues, but is attacked by Mr. Hyde (who has been hired by Mr. Klein) and during the battle the morgue is destroyed in an explosion.

Without a body, Foggy decides to dismiss the case, and Black Widow is freed. Afterwards, Matt tries to ask her out to dinner, however the Black Widow declines stating that she needs time to sort herself out.

  • Murdock's decision to defend the Black Widow in defiance and direct opposition to this friend and boss, District Attorney Franklin Nelson, indicates that Murdock has resigned his position as Assistant District Attorney. Murdock will leave shortly after the trial with the Widow and relocate in San Francisco for some time. [1]
