Iron Fist season 2 Episodes 9 and 10
« on: September 09, 2018, 02:27:19 PM »
I finished the season and wow, that was pretty amazing.  I'm not sure if Colleen is the right fit for the Iron Fist since she seems to be just as thirsty for a fight as Danny, but it makes for an interesting twist.  I like the references to Orson Randal and the original pirate queen Iron Fist.  I'm curious to know what's up with Danny at the end.  AFAIK, Orson's pistols were just pistols.  They didn't contain any power but the ending seems to imply they do.  That, or Danny got his powers back somehow.  Maybe he discovered the Book of Iron Fists?  Anyway, I like the concept of him and Ward globetrodding and learning about K'un L'un.

If there's a third season, I'm guessing we'll see Immortal Weapons and a damn dragon!

Was I the only one waiting for the hatchets to break out with a dance number?

Probably.  You know the Hatchet Gang existed before Kung-Fu Hustle, right?

It was the Ax gang in KFH wasn't it? And no recall ever hearing of them before but I don't doubt there not new.  Just kept wanting a dance number.

It was a real gang in China but also, they've shown up in a ton of martial arts movies including IP Man and one of the Drunken Master movies off the top of my head.  They're pretty common in this sort of project.

So the end was that suppose to be Danny the guns or a combo of the two?

That part is a mystery.  They gotta have the sequel hook, I guess.  My theory is that Danny not only got Orson's guns but he also got the Book of the Iron Fist and learned how to use his chi without having to go back to the dragon or use that transference ritual.  That would go a long way in having Danny earn his status back.

This video has an excellent point. Danny's motivation for gaining the fist was completely narcissistic; he just want to be a big deal. And then shortly after gaining the fist, he abandons his post because he gets bored with the nitty-gritty aspect of actually being the Iron Fist. Danny Rand is an asshole.

Fits with the theme of the Netflix shows.

His hands glowed while he fired. I assume Orson's pistols are just a vehicle for Danny's chi

That's what I figured. Especially since they show Colleen doing the same thing with her sword.

Ugh, I hope that's not the case.  I'd like to see him get his powers back as opposed to just having magic guns.
