Synopsis for "The Beast Within"Edit

Flying to the Sunnyview Mental Hospital, Spider-Woman changes back into her civilian identity of Jessica Drew. She has come there to pay a visit to her old landlady Priscilla Dolly. Later, she shows up late for her job at the Hatros Institute, and at a counseling session, she offers up her problems in life. However, when she is pressed for details, she cannot bring herself to tell them anymore. The experience upsets her, and her new friend Lindsay McCabe takes her home to her place so that she can try to cheer her up. When night falls, Lindsay decides that Jessica is in no condition to be left alone, and insists that she stay the night.

That night, Jessica hears a strange howling coming from outside. There she finds the Werewolf by Night fighting the Enforcer. The Enforcer tries to take down both the Werewolf and Spider-Woman, using his tranquilizer darts to incapacitate them. The Enforcer then tags them with a chemical that would cause them great pain if they reveal to anyone the Enforcer's existence. However, Spider-Woman quickly develops an immunity to the tranquilizer and the other chemical has no effect, so she is able to get the drop on the Enforcer. Spider-Woman knocks out the Enforcer, however, and the police arrive. Spider-Woman then grabs the Werewolf and takes him back up to the apartment that he was initially knocked out of. There, she finds the Werewolf's friend Buck Cowan is unconscious. Changing back into Jack Russell, the Werewolf explains how he ended up in a fight with the Enforcer. The two are formally introduced (since Jack doesn't remember their last encounter) and after Jack shoos off a police officer who comes to question him, he and Jessica part company, Spider-Woman promising to visit him again soon.
