"But you understand it now? Perhaps this would be easier if you tell me what you've done."
"I'm not seeking penance for what I've done, Father. I'm asking forgiveness... for what I'm about to do."
"That's not how this works. What exactly are you about to do?"
―Father Lantom and Matt Murdock[src]

Into the Ring is the first episode of the first season of the Netflix exclusive television series Daredevil.

Plot

Daredevil62

Years ago, Matt Murdock, at the age of nine, saved a man from a multiple car accident; while doing so, hazardous chemicals from a truck spilled upon his eyes, blinding him. Matt's last vision was of his father Jack comforting him.

In the present day, Murdock goes to church and makes a confession with the priest there, asking forgiveness for what he is about to do. Wearing a black mask, stops the trafficking of three women by four men.

The next morning, Murdock is awakened by a phone call by his partner Foggy Nelson; they have a meeting with a realtor in an office to start their law practice Nelson and Murdock. They agree to meet there since Nelson has another meeting to attend to first. He meets his childhood acquaintance, Officer Brett Mahoney of the New York City Police Department; getting cigars for his mother as a bribe. In exchange, Mahoney agrees to give Nelson a call if any interesting cases occur.

Karen Page

One such case does occur as Karen Page is arrested for murder, holding a bloody knife. Murdock and Nelson go to the precinct and introduce themselves as her lawyers. Page tells them that she is innocent; Murdock, listening to her heartbeat, believes her.

James Wesley shows Officer Clyde Farnum, who owes thousands of dollar's to Wesley's boss, that his daughter can be killed at anytime if he does not cooperate. He then reveals that one of his thugs is watching over his daughter. Farnum then enters Page's jail cell and tries to kill her. She scratches his eyes and screams for help.

Page is released to the custody of her lawyers; she tells them that she discovered embezzlement in the financial records of Union Allied Construction and that she told her boss, Mr. McClintock, the chief accountant of Union Allied. After he laughed her off, she approached a member of her firm's legal team for help. However, she was drugged and subsequently woke up in her apartment, with his blood on her hands. Taking her to his apartment, Murdock tries to learn why she was spared the first time; Page lies, telling him that she does not have a copy of the financial records. Thinking that Murdock is asleep, Page goes to get the flashdrive that holds the records.

Crime Cartel

Inside Karen Page's Apartment, she is ambushed by a thug who gets the flashdrive. Before he can kill her with his knife, a masked man starts a violent, prolonged fight with the thug. Defeating the potential killer, the masked man gets the flashdrive and offers to take it to the authorities; Page tells him to trust no one with it. He decides to share the information with everyone; an unconscious Rance is placed on some steps with an envelope presumably containing evidence of the embezzlement, and a story of the embezzlement appears in the New York Bulletin.

After having a meeting with different criminal lieutenants, Wesley reports to his boss, a man "whose name will not be said". The embezzlement is blamed on McClintock, Union Allied's chief accountant, who has been killed via overdose. Clyde Farnum is found dead in his apartment by his daughter, and Rance is found hanged in his jail cell. Wesley is told to open a file on Nelson and Murdock for future reference, should they need it.

Back in their office, Karen prepares a meal for the two and offers to pay back her legal fees by agreeing to become their new secretary. Meanwhile, Madame Gao, a Mandarin woman who is a criminal lieutenant and associate of Wesley's boss, is running a sweatshop with blind people, who she is using to fill cocaine in sugar packets. Murdock, on the other hand, goes to visit the old boxing gym where his father boxed and decides to hone his skills. Sometime later, in the streets of Hell's Kitchen, a van suddenly pulls up in front of another vehicle. A gang of Russian mobsters pull the driver out and proceed to beat him senseless, while Anatoly Ranskahov, one of the leaders, kidnaps his son. Matt Murdock, who is dressed in his vigilante attire, is perched upon a rooftop when he senses and hears the kidnapped's boy's cries for help.
