A spree of hate crimes is followed by another spree – the bloody deaths of the perpetrators of those crimes. The sole survivor of a gay bashing tells Pezzini of a woman who saved his live, but she’s skeptical. She’s also skeptical of the tales of a crime lord named Lupo – specializing in hate crimes. Danny learns about a hate rally, and Pez decides to infiltrate it, but her attempt to bluff her way past Lupo’s guards ends in disaster – and the only thing that saves her life is the same vigilante who brought the gay bashing incident to a bloody end. The girl shows up at Pezzini’s door later, asking for use of the Witchblade, but curiously declining Pez’s offer of help in bringing Lupo to justice. The girl’s grudge with Lupo is personal, fatal…and far older than Pezzini can imagine.
