The shadowy committee has hired Nightlash, a psycho dominatrix, to kill Haywire. The ensuing battle ends in a stalemate, with Nightlash escaping after taking some nasty hits, and Haywire suffering injuries from her whip. In other news, Haywire viciously attacks a wife-beater who coincidentally lives right next to Steve Majorsky, and Alex Kingman awakes the next day with welts on his back. Is one of these men Haywire? They certainly don't suspect it.
