Iron Fist Season 2 Episode 4 Recap
Iron Fist season 2 episode 4 sheds light on the previous episode’s ambush during the meeting between Mrs. Yang and the leader of the Golden Tigers. The movement outside the warehouse that Danny saw, causing him to blow the deal, wasn’t an attempted ambush but, according to Misty Knight, the movement of NYPD officers who had an undercover agent embedded in the Golden Tigers operation. Not only did Danny blow the potential peace, but his actions put the undercover officer in the hospital as well. Misty tells Danny that he and Colleen need to back down and let the NYPD handle the Triad violence.
Danny and Colleen visit Mrs. Yang to try and convince her to give peace another chance. Mrs. Yang comes clean about her husband’s absence. He is not in Hong Kong, rather, he has suffered a stroke and the prognosis isn’t good. Danny takes a look at Mr. Yang and finds bruising from Davos’ attack on Yang. Danny uses a technique he learned in K’un-Lun to revive Mr. Yang, who positively identifies Davos as the attacker and gives Danny “Hancock 212” before crashing.
“I Need You to Stop Touching My Things”
Joy and Davos continue to apply pressure to Walker in an attempt to find out how Danny came to be in possession of the surveillance photos. Davos leaves Joy to continue the interrogation while he sees to his plan to steal the power of the Iron Fist away from Danny. Overplaying her hand, Joy discovers that Walker is an armed services veteran who was discharged for having dissociative identity disorder. Walker becomes violent, but in the end the two come to the agreement that Walker will take care of her end of their deal.
After her confrontation with Walker, Joy returns home to find Ward waiting for her. Ward, on the advice of his NA sponsor and lover, wants to make amends by doing something nice for Joy, so he purchases the New Jersey based manufacturing company that Joy has agreed to go into business with. Joy rebukes Ward’s gesture, bluntly stating that she doesn’t want his help, that she is never coming back to Rand Enterprises, and that she no longer wants anything to do with Ward.
“Now You’ll Give Me What Has Always Been Mine, Brother”
Davos arrives at the docks ahead of Danny to claim the shipment in Hancock container 212. Inside is the corpse of a former Iron Fist, buried in the yellow mask. Davos takes the mask and cuts away the flesh from the corpse’s chest, stealing the crest of the Iron Fist. With these elements in hand and the Crane Sisters at his command, Davos prepares himself for the ritual that will steal away the power of the Iron Fist from Danny and imbue it within himself.
Holding Up Her End of the Deal
Walker holds up her end of the deal with Joy and Davos. She attacks Danny on a subway train, injecting him with a sedative that allows her to defeat Danny in combat. Walker drags Danny’s unconscious body to the place of the ritual, where the Crane Sisters combine Danny’s blood with the ashes from the burned flesh that Davos stole. This is the ink the sisters use to tattoo the crest of the Steel Serpent on Davos’ back.
The ritual is nearly complete.
