In the season finale, Iron Fists collide as the fate of New York City hangs in the balance.
Things conclude in a rather satisfying way with the second season of Iron Fist. Everyone faces off and it’s all wrapped up in a way that makes sense. And with all the fighting, the body count is low. The series, both seasons, feature Danny’s positive outlook at things and this season emphasizes that in a lot of ways. But, before we get to that, lets talk about the action.
There’s lots of martial arts, some gun play, and it’s all really good. There’s some questions as to Mary’s ability to shoot, but the fights everyone has are good with choreography that feels well thought out. None of it is groundbreaking but it feels grounded in its own way. There isn’t anything too flashy and that’s a good thing as it fits the general feel of the season.
The episode suffers a little in that it drags on a lot as all the various plotlines are explored and checked off. What’s the deal with Colleen and the coin? What’s the deal with the corpse of the Iron Fist? What about Mary and her personalities? There’s so much to unpack and dissect in this episode. It sets up what’s to come for so many characters. It also leaves so many open questions not giving us answers.
There’s a definite Lord of the Rings drag it on vibe about it, even with time jumps, but there’s some great bits that takes what was Marvel’s weakest series and turn it into one of its stronger ones. And that ending! Um… yes, explore some more history of the Iron Fist! Can’t wait for the next season or whatever may come.
