On Sunday, we were pretty much told this was going to happen. That was the right decision, in a way, since we had no clue that we would learn the supposed truth about the Persuader. Also, there's really nothing for Simon to worry about. If he goes to prison (a man with that much money and a freaking cave should have some good lawyers), then it'll no doubt be one of those white collar prisons. There's no way they'd toss him in the super-criminal prison, or even the normal criminal prison. Besides, I think there's some legal loophole that says that attempted murder of a superhero is a low-level crime.
Also: I find it delightful that Mary Jane, who supposedly knows of her husband's spider-sense, feels the need to let him know that Simon might be pulling a gun. No doubt she's been reading this strip and knows how unreliable the spider-sense truly is.
