Iron Fist Season 2 Episode 6 Recap
Iron Fist season 2 episode 6 kicks off with Misty interrogating Joy and Walker after apprehending them in the previous episode. As a result of the questioning, Misty and Colleen go to find out more about the ritual that transferred the power of the Iron Fist to Davos, leaving Ward to look after the injured Danny as well as Joy and Walker.
“Where Do You See Yourself in Five Years?”
Misty continues to press Colleen about getting into investigation professionally. Colleen still doesn’t trust her own judgement after beheading her former master, Bakuto. Misty tells Colleen that the person she wants by her side is someone who questions their own motives and actions, not someone who always thinks that they are always right. The two find the tattoo parlor operated by the Crane Sisters and question the sisters about Davos. The sisters put up a fight, but Misty and Colleen subdue them. Misty and Colleen make the sisters an offer. Rather than being arrested for assault on Danny, they will let the sisters go as long as they will perform the ritual again in order to strip the power of the Iron Fist from Davos.
“I Did it to Him Because I Couldn’t Do it To You”
Ward finally gets some alone time with Joy. Ward bares his soul to Joy, telling her about the abuse he suffered at their father’s hands. He lied to Joy in order to save her from that same abuse. Nonetheless, Joy says that she suffered, and that the reason she plotted to harm Danny is because she couldn’t harm her own family. Ward still wants to reconcile, but his selfishness drives Joy away for what, she says, is the last time.
The Putrefaction of This City
Davos continues what he sees is his righteous mission to rid New York City of crime. At one such stop, he spots the young Hatchet Gang members. When asked if they should be added to the list of criminals, Davos says, “Not yet.” Rather than halting the violence in the city and ending the Triad war, Davos’ actions have escalated the tensions, driving Mrs. Yang to seek “blood for blood” over her murdered Hatchet Gang members. Danny tells Davos that all Davos has done is become another faction in the war.
“Mary, Mary, Sad and Contrary”
Danny wants to try and reason with Davos, and the only one who knows how to find Davos is Walker. Danny makes a deal with Walker. He will pay her a half of a million dollars if she will take Danny to Davos and help Danny subdue him. The two stop by Walker’s apartment to gather her tools for bringing down the Iron Fist. Danny asks Walker about the head games she played as Mary in order to get close to Danny. Walker explains her condition to Danny, detailing the triggers that cause Mary to come to the fore.
At Davos’ hideout, Walker agrees not to kill Davos, as Joy had asked her to do. Danny tries to reason with Davos, but is unsuccessful. Walker injects Davos with a sedative, but in the ensuing fight, Davos breaks Danny’s leg succumbing to the sedative. Walker drags Danny to the street and calls for an ambulance, but before she can call Colleen and Misty to come gather the unconscious Davos, the cold, the rain, and the flashing lights on the ambulance trigger Walker’s transformation to Mary.
