Thwip! Watch – Iron Fist – S01E09 – “The Mistress of all Agonies”

Thwip! Watch is all about what goes on our screens, namely TV. Whether CW or Fox or NBC or what-have-you, you can be sure that we here at Thwip! have been watching it. Today we are going to talk about Marvel’s Iron Fist.

Poor Kyle, literally only there to be kicked – ’cause I mean where the hell was he for the past couple of days? Harold was gone from the penthouse for at least twenty-four hours!

Anyways, I think I am getting Stockholm Syndrome, ’cause this episode was not that bad. Mainly because this seems to have finally found its footing, spending most of the episode setting up what will be the last few episodes of the season.

Still doesn’t mean it is not crap though.

First of all, Rand has terrible security, seriously, they just let Harold waltz in and out without anyone even noticing…even though he was whacked out on Hand-resurrection mode.

Speaking of Harold, dude, whoever is writing your lines, you should have killed him with an ice-cream scoop. Not even from scene to scene, but line by line he changes in tone, attitude, and demeanor. I get that it is supposed to be the Handsanity, but it doesn’t come off that way, instead just feels like they are doing improv and someone is shouting emotional stage directions at the actor. “You are angry! Now you are sad! Now you are horny!”

The posion doesn’t even make sense, is it fast-acting or not? We have seen it kill people in seconds and then it takes its sweet time with Colleen. Anyways, that aside – I like how lab = chemicals = sodium pentathol – this is your education system at work America!

I really hope that we deal with why Danny Rand is the shittiest Iron Fist so far, ’cause they are hinting at things that seriously have not been explained so far…and considering how much talking goes on that’s a phenomenal feat!
