Jason Wynn is spooked. Some outside force is tampering with
his business. He tells Merrick to hire agents outside the agency to track Terry
Fitzgerald. Merrick wants to do it herself, but Wynn refuses. Things are
getting too close for comfort. He wants to keep the dirty work separate.
Merrick begrudgingly agrees to follow the bosses orders.
Washington Post reporter LISA WU has stumbled onto story of her life, maybe the
story of the decade when she began investing the death of two reporters
murdered in Rat City. Her investigation leads her to Senator McMillian, Billy
Kincaid and then, strangely to Wanda Blake and her daughter Cyan, Billy's last
victim who was rescued. Is there a connection between all of these parties?
Lisa intends to find out and she will start with Wanda Blake, and the alley.
She manages to bribe some of the inhabitants of the alley and discovers Spawn's
hidden weapons, and gets a hot tip on someone named Al.
The police are in an uproar. Too many bodies are showing up in the alleys of
Rat City, and the department can no longer ignore it. Much to the delight of
Burke and Twitch, squads of cops are being sent in to comb the alleys in search
of a possible common denominator among the deaths. Meanwhile, Terry is hiding
out in those very dark streets wondering when he'll see his wife and child
again. When he is arrested by the police, his chances seem bleak.
In the darkness of night, Spawn pays Wanda and Cyan a visit. While he is there,
one of Wynn's agents comes in to kill the mother and daughter. Spawn acts
quickly and kills the agent, but in the process frightens Wanda again. Spawn
tries to tell her who he really is but she is convinced that the monster before
her is lying. It couldn't possibly be her dead husband, Al. When Cyan enters
the room, Spawn leaves. Only after he is gone, Cyan tells her mother that he
was the Sad Man who saved here from Billy Kincaid.
