Synopsis for "Give Up the Ghost, Part 1"
After rescuing a woman from a demon, Johnny Blaze recounts how he came to be the Ghost Rider in a bar, when a man named Adam offers to rid him of the curse now that the Serpent is spreading fear across the world.
Johnny refuses and sees people rioting outside, including a man assaulting a woman. He goes to help her without changing into the Ghost Rider and takes a beating from him. Waking up in the woman's home, he is reluctant to accept help from her, believing that no one helps him without wanting something in return.
Johnny changes his mind and asks Adam to take the curse away, the catch being that someone Johnny doesn't know will become the Ghost Rider in his stead. Now all Johnny has to do is drive so fast that the curse rips off him. He succeeds and finds himself in the desert, finally free of the Ghost Rider.
