So apparently the show ends with a big "twist" ending where Danny and Colleen return to Kun Lun only to find it has been destroyed and everyone killed by The Hand? Lmao. RIP Immortal Iron Fist for S2.

Complete with a slow zoom into Danny's glowing fist as the closing shot

(I just skimmed through the finale to see if anything interesting happened)

It's not destroyed-it's missing. Danny arrives where the entrance should be and it's just vanished. There are 4 dead Hand Ninjas outside where the entrance should be.

I skipped to the end to see if there was any Defenders cameos.

Wait til you see the scene in question. Danny and Colleen are navigating a snowy peak that looks like a rock climbing wall at a gym.

Oh I checked the ending out for myself. Seems a lot better than I thought. He wants to bring Colleen to Kun Lun, but they get there and there are dead Hand dudes, and there's the BIG gate entrance that everyone knows is probably a portal thing like in the comics, and beyond that is just empty space in the mountains without a city.

I guess in this show Danny doesn't know that Kun Lun can exist outside of real space? Capital City of Heaven, etc. His glowing fist at the end is probably reacting to the fact that there's a portal.

He knows because he says earlier in the show that he couldn't come back until the "way was open" for him to return to NYC.

Huh. So why would he be surprised that they moved. He even does the "I should have been there" shit, like, it looks to me they killed the Hand invaders and just moved because they were under attack. What the fuck difference does he think he would have made. Loser!

Also, Claire is literally the only doctor in all of NYC.

So two episodes down. I feel like the acting isn't half bad except for Ward. The fight choreography isn't very impressive, and the writing isn't that great either. Hoping it picks up.


Honestly, it's not so bad so far.

Episode 2 - Danny is shown a 15 year old commercial.

Any advert that old would have been filmed with everything (people and gfx) framed in the 4x3 safe area, given the ubiquitous nature of SD 4x3 televisions at the time. Not 16x9 HD.



Sloppy production work.

And his other childhood friend that also wants to kill because Danny sucks i guess. Also K'un Lun is gone because the budget couldn't handle it.

Just finished this show and I'm not sure you need a spoiler thread because across 13 hour long episodes nothing happens :(

Anything that does happen is undone immediately or switched up immediately in some kind of twist, and despite being told things over and over again the 'iron fist' just keeps ignoring everything and making the same trivial mistakes.

When his friend shows up and jokingly calls him the worst iron fist I couldn't laugh because the show does an incredible job convincing you that this guy is a charmless idiot who consistently makes the worst decisions, probably not helped by his one note acting.

Also everyone in china, even the decrepit poor beggars living on the street, speak perfect English as if they were raised in New York.

The last episode was absolute trash. In his final confrontation with Harold, who the show had been hyping up to be a well-trained fighter, they fumble around in the dark for a few seconds before Danny impales him on a pipe. Then Danny must overcome his thirst for revenge that has been messing with his mind since the beginning, and he is able to do so because... the lights on top of the Rand building look vaguely similar to the dragon's eyes? What??? What lesson is he learning here? Why does this flashback fix him when all the others made him worse, even though he clearly states that becoming the Iron Fist did not give him purpose as he had hoped? Why did they not use this moment as a payoff for Claire's conversation with Davos, in which she implies that ignoring your emotions is a mistake?

Honestly, fuck the terrible writing in this show.
