Iron Fist: Morning of the Mindstorm

     Iron Fist continues recycling titles from the comics in their second season. In this case, “Morning of the Mindstorm” comes from Marvel Premier 25. The titles seem to have a tenuous connection at best to what actually happens in the episode, as is the case here.

Iron Fist: The Dragon Dies at Dawn

        Iron Fist’s second season continues with “The Dragon Dies at Dawn.” This, as with the other titles this season, is borrowed from an earlier comic; in this case, Iron Fist 9 from 1976. We see Danny dealing with his loss, an attempted family reconciliation, and Davos working on his own list but only needing to check it once.

Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon

  Iron Fist hits the halfway point of the season with “Heart of the Dragon.” Again borrowing titles, this is from a comic back in 1974 which was Iron Fist’s second appearance. It shows the aftermath of last episode’s ritual, and our hero has a really bad day.

Iron Fist: Target Iron Fist

     The fourth episode of Iron Fist’s second season is “Target: Iron Fist,” originally used for Danny’s own comic back in 1977 (Issue 13).  The episode uses a trope I’m getting really sick of: a dramatic opening scene and then rewinding to see how we got there.

Luke Cage: They Reminisce Over You

           Luke Cage’s second season, and sadly the series, come to an end in “They Reminisce Over You.” I’ll talk more about the end later. I will say there were a lot of surprises and twists along the way, most of which I didn’t see coming. Since it’s both a season and series finale, there will be spoilers below.

Luke Cage: Creator

Luke Cage’s second, and sadly final season moves closer to completion with “The Creator.” The episode is mostly about repercussions from Mariah’s shocking act at the end the previous show, and filling in some background on the Dillard/McIver feud courtesy of Flashback Theater. While it’s a good episode, rarely for Cage, there’s a lot of talking and not a great deal of anything else.
