Synopsis for "I Don't Wanna Fight Tonight! (With Yooouu!)"
Matt Murdock breaks in to the secret S.H.I.E.L.D. prison to pay a visit to Cindy Moon (who he is romantically involved with), with her asking why he wants Spider-Woman to be back. Later, the Mary Janes are performing at a Christmas concert, when one of the spectators steals their case full of money. Gwen takes chase, but falls quickly without her powers. It is then when Otomo, a servant of the hand and the second-in-command of Kingpin, intervenes and orders her to be at the rooftop at midnight. Gwen then meets Officer Boyle, who respects her father for his selfless actions, who she requests to wish him happy holidays. At midnight, Spider-Woman arrives at the rendezvous, which turns out to be an ambush. She manages to hold off most of the ninjas, but is severely injured by Otomo, who also removes her web-shooters and her power-ups. Murdock (who was present the whole time) reveals that he knew about Gwen losing her powers from the beginning, as Moon told him herself. Instead of allowing her to quit, he offers her a surplus of Radioactive Spider Isotopes, knowing he is her only hope of being Spider-Woman. Later, Boyle stops by George's cell, where he hands him a copy of Dad Cop! and wishes him happy holidays, with George wishing him a Merry Christmas.
