The inquiry into the ambush at the Rialto Theater is not looking good for Pezzini – and her prospects of keeping her badge look even worse when the antagonistic Captain Dante is appointed as the head of the homicide department. Evidence involving a bladed weapon at the site of the massacre has turned up, and there are questions about a man who knocked Jake out cold just before the fight – a man who is at this very moment being hunted down by three heavily-armed combatants on motorcycles. After the inquiry session is over, Jake and Pez respond to this duel, only to find that two of the three combatants didn’t make it out of the fight. Pez gives chase to one of them, but loses him after narrowly missing one of his bullets. The trail of evidence eventually leads her to the door of Kenneth Irons, who is also being hunted by the sole surviving assailant of his bodyguard – but will protecting Irons neceessarily be the lesser of two evils for the wielder of the Witchblade?
