Title: Blood Oath
Writer: Peter David
Art: Rick Leonardi

Summary:
The Specialist holds Spider-Man in his grip and tries to remove his mask, but it sticks to his costume with webbing. Spider-Man breaks free and slashes the Specialist with his talons. Tyler Stone observes the fight and orders Public Eye officers to converge and prevent Spider-Man from escaping. He also orders that all monitors on the city be tuned into the fight. Kasey flees the scene of the fight but turns back when she sees all the Public Eye officers heading towards Spider-Man. Commandeering a Public Eye bicycle, she swoops down so that Spider-Man can latch onto the bike with his webbing. Unfortunately the Specialist grabs hold of Spider-Man's leg and the fight continues. Kasey nearly flies the bicycle into a building but does not pull up soon enough to prevent Spider-Man and the Specialist from hitting a wall. Spider-Man manages to grab hold of the wall, but the Specialist plummets down. Spider-Man launches a web line and saves him. As he swings down to bring them both to the ground safely, Spider-Man asks the Specialist how he feels about his having saved his life. The Specialist responds by continuing his attack. In a fit of rage, Spider-Man lashes out with his talons and slits the Specialist's throat. Public Eye officers arrive on scene and open fire, against Tyler Stone's orders. The gunfire pushes Spider-Man over the edge and he plummets downward.
