The last scene REALLY should have been the door closing on Misty's face. This show is too fucking obsessed with musical numbers, though, so we had to end with another dumb concert.
You could just watch The Godfather if you want that ending.

Up to the final episode and her improvement over season one has been nothing short of impressive. This might just be the consistently best season of any Marvel Netflix series thus far. It doesn’t quite hit the same highs that Daredevil did, but it never really hits that hard slump that the Netflix shows tend to suffer around a third of the way through.

I agree.
9 outta 10 Masters are Master.

It was still a better ending than having another musical number no one wanted.

Yep, those words almost make a coherent sentence. Good job! You'll get there someday, kiddo.

The musical number was played to establish the 4 Queens the King has to contend with to hold power.

Tilda
Misty
Deputy Chief
Carbon

Claire got dismissed, so that's one down.

Got 2 episodes to go but man this season was seriously a challenge to get through.

Everyone's dialogue was too preachy & long winded followed by mediocre action/fight scenes.

Hell if your bullets are bouncing off Luke...run AWAY. NOT bloody TOWARDS him.

And Nightshade needing Jamaican soil...I kinda got the impression BushMaster would've have had enough connections to bribe the right people to smuggle a bag full into the country.

IronFist was actually a fun break...it's jus a shame they wasted his fights on goons...would've been better if he turned up to take BM down alongside Luke. (I'm assuming this doesn't happen because someone already mentioned IF was only in one episode.)

I do fail to see how they keep churning out these awfulk fight sequences. These are slow, awkward, lacking kinetic energy. How hard is it to get the Daredevil guys to stage the fight scenes...

Luke's fight scenes aren't so much awful as awkward to watch.
He's slow & bulky...he waits for his opponents to come to him...if they run away, he doesn't exactly chase them.
And tapping a bad guy on the head to make him unconscious is a poor excuse for action.

I'm surprised you thought season 2's fights were so boring.  Luke was much more likely to throw guys around, smash them through things, etc.  The warehouse fight was awesome.  He did far more than tap people.

It's not so much of Luke's fighting style that annoyed me but the predictability of the bad guys.

Bad guy shoots Luke...that doesn't work so run at Luke to try & punch him?

Guns are useless against Luke so try & hit him with a machete or metal pipe?

It just felt the bad guys were always making stupid moves just so that Luke could get within arm's reach of them.

BushMaster & Luke teaming up against the Chinese was a better fight scene than the warehouse IMO.

Once the initial gunfight was over & everything became hand to hand with the Chinese wielding the hatchets, the pace was faster & felt more credible.

If anything, these Marvel Netflix series gives more credibility to their villains & their motives.

They literally explained why they do that in the first episode. They have to make it look like they tried otherwise their bosses would kill them.

It was more of a "half assed excuse" by one goon than literally taken as a serious order by all the gang bosses.

In the warehouse at least, Bushmaster was studying Luke's moves.
