    Danny's such a child. And I love how Jessica's main contribution in fights is delivering knockout punches, lol.

    Stick I was expecting. Honestly, I was surprised he lasted as long as he did. But damn, Sigourney was a shock!

    6 Episodes in, forget that Iron Fist and Luke Cage spin-off. I want a Jessica Jones and Daredevil spin-off.

    Ooooh boy.

    They did a "Luke Cage Episode 7", except this time it works because Elektra is not a terrible replacement like Diamondback was.

    LOL totally. :funny:
    I wanted to punch Danny when he was going to hit Jessica with the iron fist when she's the one trying to stop the fight. :argh:

    Stick! :waa: Expected but still sad.

    I'm shocked at the last few moments. I didn't see Elektra being the one killing Alexandra.

    Did she cut Alexandra's head off at the end?

    A lot of Hand infighting drama in this episode, which could get boring, but I think the ending made up for that. I'm assuming everyone figured out the Hand's plan before now, right? I liked the Matt and Jessica scenes, although [blackout]the piano thing[/blackout] was a bit contrived.

    He ended up being right, though.

    Right about what?
    That he's not a key? That they just want him as a weapon? That Sowande came up with the story just to tear them apart? Because he was wrong about the whole thing, and the whole infighting could have been avoided, had he calmed down and went along with the plan for a day.

    He was right about sidelining him being a stupid idea. They couldn't win without him. At the time he was the only one who had actually managed to fight off Electra. Instead they forced him to stay in the hideout against his will and left him with Stick of all people. I can't be the only one who thought he might try to off Danny.

    But had he just calmed the **** down, he wouldn't even have been in the situation he was. He could have grabbed a coffee, while Matt and Jessica try to find out if there was any truth to Sowande's words. And when **** hit the fan, they could have still called Danny and Luke. That's what the whole Episode was about. The rest of them looking for clues, while Danny doesn't run around, causing trouble. But of course he picks a fight with all 3.

    How did Danny faint? Seriously.

    Bravo Stick, you helped them have the Iron Fist.

    I thought he was pretending to be passed out at first, they didn't show him inhaling any of that smoke.

    This episode got on my nerves for small reasons.

    1) Danny. All of him basically.
    2) Luke Cage saying he doesn't believe in mystic stuff when he lives in a world where Scarlet Witch, Thor, and aliens exist. Is it really that hard to believe?
    3) Alexandra dying already after they hyped her up so much. It felt a bit wasted.
    4) I normally really like Stick but I didn't care for him in this episode either.

    The highlights were definitely the scenes with Matt and Jessica and the smaller ones with Luke and Danny joking around.

    None of those are mystic, though.
