Off-duty, Misty had drinks at Harlem's Paradise, conversing with the bartender Luke Cage. Afterwards, they encountered each other again in the streets and, upon the offer for coffee, moved into Luke Cage's apartment for intercourse. Misty received a call from the department, in which they had discovered the body of Dante Chapman at the junkyard.

Alongside her partner Rafael Scarfe, she sought teenagers on the streets for information on Shameek Smith and Chico Diaz. The investigation led them to Pop's Barber Shop, where Misty Knight encountered Cage, the two acting as though they had never met.[2]
