Synopsis for "Bring Out Your Dead"

After the shootout with Ma Gnucci's men, Frank laid on the ground, bleeding, but got up and walked into the apartment complex. Later, Detective Martin Soap and Lieutenant Molly von Richthofen went to the site of the shootout to search for the whereabouts of the Punisher. At the hospital, Ma Gnucci's men told her about the shootout; in response, she told them to keep looking for the Punisher. When Frank reached his apartment, he fell on the floor and collapsed. Soap and Richthofen went to a church to ask Father Hector Redondo about four murders, whose victims all attended his church. Father Redondo told the detective and the lieutenant that he regularly took the confessions of the victims, before showing the two officers out. Joan walked into "Mr. Smith's" apartment to look for him, when she saw blood stains and a wall of weapons. The Elite bought a hot dog from a vendor on the street, before telling him that he didn't want him there and dropping a grenade in his cart. Joan called Spacker Dave to show him that "Mr. Smith" was, in fact, the Punisher. The two picked him up and rested him on his bed, where he woke up. On the news, Robert Leonard, the Chairman of the Wall Street Investors Association, was shot in the head by Mr. Payback, while giving an interview. Then, Mr. Payback addressed the viewers by giving a speech, calling for attacks on corporatism. Two Gnucci hitmen were watching the news, before they went to the apartment complex to find Frank and posed as police officers to Joan and Spacker Dave.
