Finn Cooley, a high-profile member of the Irish mafia whose son was killed by the Punisher, sends his remaining associates in search of him and the money he stole from the mafia. Elsewhere, Karen learns from case files provided by Reyes subordinate, Blake Tower, that the Punisher's real name is Frank Castle, and locates a disgraced surgeon who points her to the Castle household. That night, Castle is captured by the Irish and taken off to be brutally tortured by Cooley who drills through his foot. He gives up the location of the money when Cooley threatens to kill Castle's dog, but the case containing the money is armed with a detonated bomb that kills some of Cooley's men. Cooley prepares to kill Castle, who escapes and kills Cooley and several henchmen. At the same time, Matt arrives at the site and assists a wounded Castle in incapacitating Cooley's remaining henchmen, before weakly carrying him to a nearby cemetery. There, Castle tells Matt about his family, which he reveals was murdered by the mafia. The police arrive and apprehend Castle, and Matt tells Sergeant Mahoney to take credit for the arrest to reinforce the city's hope in the police force. Matt, Foggy and Karen celebrate at Josie's Bar, and Matt and Karen share a kiss in the rain before parting ways. When Matt returns home, he is surprised by the appearance of an old friend, Elektra Natchios.
