Michael Badilino scours the streets of New York looking for Ghost Rider. Unable to locate his quarry, he settles for the next best thing. His task force and he conduct a series of raids on known warehouses used by Deathwatch. When he returns to the station, Captain Dolan berates Badalino's tactics and decries that his entire task force are nothing more than a group of vigilantes hand-picked by the mayer.
A short time later, Ghost Rider hits the streets and executes surgical strikes against Snowblind's known safe houses. Afterward, he turnes back into Danny Ketch and meets up with Stacy Dolan. A group of muggers appear before them in front of the police station. One of them accosts Danny, but he defends himself easily enough. Badalino arrives and takes the muggers into custody. As soon as he's done, he resumes his search for Ghost Rider.
Elsewhere, Snowblind telephones his conspirator, Deathwatch. He tells him that the police are breathing down his neck. Deathwatch tells Snowblind that he will take care of it and hangs up. He decides that his colleague has become too much of a liability and decides to betray him. He leaks video footage of Snowblind at one of his warehouses to the media and it airs on the local news. From their respective locales, both Danny Ketch and Michael Badalino see the footage and recognize the warehouse. Danny hops on his motorcycle and speeds off.
Changing into the Ghost Rider, he arrives at the warehouse. Snowblind creates a field of blinding, white light so Ghost Rider cannot find him. He threatens to execute his own secretary, Francesca Tofield, unless Ghost Rider agrees to let him go. Ghost Rider manages to locate Snowblind and beats him into submission. After he rides off, Michael Badalino arrives. He points his sidearm at Snowblind's face and fires.
