Keep in mind I'm not done with Iron Fist and I'm up to the point where we first see her as Colleen's student, but her appearance her seems forced. Hell, she literally cockblocked Danny. And she's the best student Colleen has ever had? LOL.

Within the series itself its forced but her reasoning was established in Luke Cage. After everything that's happened she decides to take lessons with Colleen after finding her flyer.

They should just have her wear a t-shirt that says, "Hi, I'm the link between the Netflix shows."

I am expecting the inevitable scene where Danny says something like, "My life is pretty weird right now" and Claire responds with "TRUST ME... I know weird" as she turns and winks at the camera.

Colleen never said she was her best student.

As for the cock blocking, that was Colleen's doing as she wanted Danny to know it wasn't a date and Claire clued in.

Danny needs to brush up on his Game theory.

Danny trusting at blink Harold after the latter died, hasn't aged and revealed the Hand was so frustratingly dumb.

Finished ep 5. Also Colleen was right to tear Danny apart forbearing on that kid. His Zen is weak.

So the Katana vs Chinese Short Sword fight was great, proving once again Colleen is the best part of the show.

The drunken-boxing fight was several tiers below episodes of Walker: Texas Ranger. - Why do they go into slow for the least impact-ful moves? It's like they want to highlight there's no connection.

Beating people with bamboo sticks when they fuck up is standard kung-fu monk stuff.

Right, but the kid didn't know that. And there a difference between training in a temple and getting monks slapping you with wooden sticks to correct your form and then showing up to your local dojo and a guy you haven't seen before baseball bats your ankle with some bamboo.

and Danny didn't know what. His idea of what a dojo is is very different.

Yeah that scene made sense given his background. For him, training is a life or death matter.

Exactly.  Danny left the world when he was ten and has no idea of what a Western dojo would look like.  Making a fart noise to your teacher would probably earn a far worse beating in K'un L'un than what Danny gave him.

Danny doesn't seem to observe discipline I would associate with a martial arts master - I understand that's part of the shtick they were going for, his zen is unclear. He still seems far on the man-baby side. He bounces between this focused warrior monk and a the kid who trolled you for not listening to Linkin Park in 8th grade. He knows from his time before the tutelage of K'un L'un that people don't just wig out and break other people's bones. He wasn't that young when the plane crashed.

He never broke anyone's bones.  He just slapped the guy's feet out from under him.  It was a mean thing to do, but it's not like he caused any serious harm.

Yeah, it probably hurt like hell but the kid deserved it. He'll be okay.
