Iron Fist - Under Leaf Pluck Lotus / Immortal Emerges from Cave TV review

The fifth and six episodes of Iron Fist finally get around to introducing the series’ villains. Returning from the Second Season of Daredevil are the still-ill-defined versions of the Hand. Yah? Along with them comes Rosario Dawson in her role as Claire, the only character who has appeared in all four series. A student of Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), Claire gets pulled back into the super-hero nonsense she hoped she had moved past when Danny (Finn Jones) and Colleen’s paths reconnect and she helps him investigate the Hand’s illegal drug smuggling being done in the ports Rand owns. The discovery of the drug’s creator (Olek Krupa) will force Danny into direct confrontation with the Hand to free the man’s daughter (Alessia Sushko), and it will force Claire and Colleen to make a hard decision given the man’s failing health.

Iron Fist - Rolling Thunder Cannon Punch / Eight Diagram Dragon Palm TV review

If the first two episodes of Iron Fist are about reintroducing Danny Rand (Finn Jones) to New York City, the second pair are about him reclaiming his family name. Free from the mental asylum (which apparently is fine, because no one ever peruses the escaped mental patient), but unable to claim his name from the Meechams, Danny hires Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) to fight for 51% of the company his father built. This becomes increasingly hard with Ward‘s (Tom Pelphrey) cronies destroying ever piece of evidence that Danny ever existed. Netflix’s TV universe continues to connect its shows only through supporting characters. Hogarth shows in a few episodes this season, and we’ll soon be seeing a certain nurse as well.

Iron Fist - Snow Gives Way / Shadowhawk Takes Flight TV review

There are some definite similarities to the first two episodes of Netflix’s new series Iron Fist and the first couple of episodes of FX’s Legion. Sadly, Iron Fist isn’t as stylized or as intriguing as the other property. Even several episodes in, while there might be grave doubts to who David (Dan Stevens) is, and whether or not he’s sane, there are no such complexities when it comes to Danny Rand (Finn Jones). The first two episodes drag out Danny’s return to New York and his re-connection to a pair of childhood friends who take the odd homeless man as either a mentally-deranged fool or con artist. Hoping to reclaim a part of his life before the plane crash which marooned him in the Himalayas fifteen years ago, Danny struggles and is eventually institutionalized by the very friends he returned to find.
