Meeting Wilson Fisk

Selling Rabbit in a blizzard

“People always ask me how we can charge so much for what amounts of just variations of white, I tell them it’s not about the artist’s name or the skill required, not even about the art itself. All that matters is, how does it make you feel?
“It makes me feel alone.”

Remaining Loyal

Standing by Wilson Fisk

“The last thing I wanted was for anyone close to me to become a target from those who do not share my dream. For those who will have this city stay exactly as it is: mired in poverty and crime, and I know now, it was foolish to make that decision. I can no longer do it alone.”
―Wilson Fisk to WHiH World News

Marianna told Murdock that he did not need spy to appreciate art, only honesty, although Murdock facetiously claimed that sight did aid. Marianna went on to claim that there was something deeply familiar about experiencing art from person else ‘s eyes, while noting that it would make a good line and Murdock should use it with any future women. As Marianna led him through the gallery, Murdock claimed to not have a clear idea of what he wanted, Marianna claimed that this was dependable, noting that artwork was not furniture, and should speak to him and move him, before she took Murdock over towards one nibble .
As Marianna took Murdock to one of her front-runner pieces, he asked her to describe it to him, as she told him about the sea of tonal reds that represented wrath a well as the heart, commenting on how the patch struck the perfect balance between the two emotions. When Murdock claimed that it sounded aggressive, Marianna insisted that it all depended on his point of view, as Murdock suggested that they find something a little less challenging. Murdock asked Marianna if she had a man in her life, to which she jokingly questioned if he was flirting with her, although Murdock insisted that a man who had won her kernel clearly would be able to provide a thoroughly public opinion on art .
Before she answered, Marianna noted that Murdock could merely ask him himself, noticing that Wilson Fisk had just arrived into the veranda. As Marianna then greeted Fisk, he expressed a hope that he was not interrupting, as Marianna noted that they were just talking about him. Marianna introduced Fisk to Murdock, as Fisk recognized Murdock ‘s name through his law firm, Nelson and Murdock, which Murdock had run along with Foggy Nelson. Marianna explained that Murdock was looking to purchase some artwork from her, as she had noted that he wanted to know Fisk ‘s opinions on what he should buy, to which Fisk plainly advised Murdock to buy anything that Marianna selected .
Marianna listened close as Murdock noted that he and Fisk were on opposite sides of a legal character involving Elena Cardenas ‘ build, as Fisk was trying to have destroyed after he had bought it from Armand Tully. As Fisk spoke about his views on how New York City had been suffering for hanker enough and could be reborn, Marianna interrupted him by noting that Murdock was her customer, and not one of Fisk ‘s donors, which Fisk had accepted. Apologizing for the hard sell about his viewpoints on their future, Fisk had then insisted to Murdock that New York City ‘s future had remained highly important to him .
As Marianna stood by, Murdock just told Fisk that he felt the lapp way about New York, before he turned to Marianna and thanked her for her time showing him around the gallery. Marianna questioned if Murdock had good changed his mind about what he was looking for, although Murdock insisted that he simply had to reconsider the price of the artworks that he had been looking at. With that, Murdock then addressed Fisk before walking out of the veranda, which had left both Marianna and Fisk reasonably confused about what Murdock ‘s actual intentions had been with coming into the gallery to speak to her.

“That was beautiful.”
“That word is meant only for you tonight.”
―Vanessa Marianna and Wilson Fisk

Without any warning, several of the guests began to crumble and emetic, as Owlsley blamed it on them not being able to hold their drink. however, Fisk realized that something was ill-timed, as he called for Wesley to get the cable car and ran to Marianna ‘s help precisely as she dropped her glass and collapsed in Fisk ‘s arms.

[ 2 ] Marianna was moved into Wilson Fisk ‘s Penthouse to complete her remainder and recovery. When Fisk did not come when she called him by ringing the bell he had provided her with, Marianna went to speak to him and found him looking through a stack of paperwork at his dinner mesa. He explained they were for a transplant of funds for Marianna ‘s passing from New York City which were nowadays going back to their original places, although he did express his confusion at the numbers and planned to have Leland Owlsley review them. Fisk late learned that Owlsley was responsible for Marianna ‘s poison and killed him in retaliation for the damage he and Madame Gao had done. [ 11 ]

“I’m not going to let them take you away from me, Wilson.”

Fisk, however, did not make it to her in time as he was confronted by Daredevil and recaptured. With no other option, Marianna boarded the helicopter and left the city without Fisk, but not before putting on the ring that he gave her. [ 11 ]

Going on the Run

“It was her decision. We strongly advised against Europe, given the extradition risk, but Ms. Marianna enjoys the art and she can be very insistent.”
“Yes, she can. But it’s too easy for the Albanians to get at her there. Call Felix. Tell him to put Vanessa someplace safer. Someplace closer.”
―Benjamin Donovan and Wilson Fisk

While Wilson Fisk was arrested and taken to Ryker ‘s Island to begin his sentence, Marianna was forced to go on the run.

Return to New York

Reunited with Wilson Fisk

“It’s nothing. I wanted you to feel welcome.”
“I do. It’s incredible.”
“Do you want something to eat from one of the restaurants, or I could make you something?”
―Vanessa Marianna and Wilson Fisk

Through all of Wilson Fisk ‘s clandestine dealings with the FBI which had allowed him to manipulate them to his will, [ 15 ] Marianna was last granted license to return into New York City without fear of being arrested as an accessory to Fisk ‘s crimes, which Tammy Hattley was now working to have revoked. Upon hearing this newsworthiness, Marianna had then boarded a helicopter and flew straightaway back to New York from Europe, finding Fisk was waiting for her on the helipad .
While Fisk was given modern information from Johnson, Fisk was more implicated with his reunion with his future wife as Marianna stepped out of her helicopter. As they held each other in their arms, Marianna smiled and greeted Fisk, as the copulate delighted at being reunited for the foremost fourth dimension in two years following the FBI ‘s apprehension of Fisk and all his time spent inside Ryker ‘s Island as a consequence. Having piano rested their heads against one another, enjoying each other ‘s company, Fisk then invited Marianna to rejoin him back home plate, under the protective covering of her FBI security team, which he had managed to obtain for them .

Marianna and Fisk had then headed upstairs to their penthouse suite, walking by Benjamin Poindexter along the way who had requested a bible with Fisk, who rejected his request in order to spend more meter with Marianna. Once they were inside, Marianna found that Fisk had already laid out a amatory scene for them, with candles around the room and the dinner table prepared for them. While Marianna looked around the cortege, Fisk had offered her whatever she wanted, although Marianna rejected this. While Marianna looked at the artworks, Fisk offered her the chance to redecorate or even her own collection .
Having heard all of Fisk ‘s offers to make her happy, Marianna smiled and thanked him, as Fisk insisted that he simply wanted to make her feel welcome there. As Fisk questioned if Marianna was hungry and offered her something from the hotel ‘s restaurant or his own cook, Marianna politely refused, claiming that she was not athirst and was rather plainly banal from her farseeing journey from Europe to New York. Despite having all his offerings rejected, Fisk apologized to Marianna for not considering her fatigue and had alternatively shown her to their bedroom where she could have her bath before going into bed. [ 14 ]

“I was surrounded by people but I wasn’t with them. I was lonely.”
“Vanessa, we have both been lonely.”
“And I still am. I’m here, surrounded by your things, your people, even you but I still don’t feel that I’m with you.”
