    All in all though...

    Danny needs his goddamn suit in Iron Fist season two. I think the green and yellow tracksuit he has at the end of Defenders is already a good start as a way to modernize his costume. Just pop up the collar, open the jacket to show his tattoo, and give him a mask. Like this:

    As for Danny, I feel like he improved. I wouldn't say he's great yet, but I like him focusing on stillness and wisdom while being a cool down the Earth friend. But his comments on Luke's anger felt annoying since that's barely a nonexistent subplot. I like Danny being more analytical than Luke in exploiting enemy weaknesses and not focusing solely on brute force.

    This would be the perfect time for a Heroes for Hire show (I mean after Iron Fist season two). All of the plotlines and villains from season one got finished. But Luke is now a moderating crime boss. Which is an interesting twist that can go places. But gets in the way of a Heroes for Hire show. Or could make it more interesting, I don't know. I do not believe that a third season is necessary at all though. And the show could end up being completely different now.

    Bushmaster was cool. Like you, I was scared that he would kill his uncle. I'm so glad he had that depth of caring about his family instead of going full on unstable selfish revenge murderer. Although his role as an antagonist leaves much to be desired. The savage acts were cool, but the story felt like it was running in circles and I wasn't that invested in his revenge quest until the last few episodes. He had four fights with Luke and lost three of them. The paralysis dust came out of nowhere and is never useful again. And the season dragged with his revenge attempts. I feel like he would work a lot better if he was someone's right hand man or top soldier. The mastermind would have more compelling ambitions and schemes while Bushmaster is the bruiser with swagger who has a family and neutral/anti-hero morals. Like if he worked for Cottonmouth. Man, I wish Cottonmouth was still alive so they could team up or at least interact.

    I mostly liked Mariah. I like how she valued Luke, how she embraced for queenpin role, and her love/hate relationship with her family. It could have been told more consistently, but I like how she doesn't flat our reject or love her family legacy. It's more nuanced and complex than that. She was forced into that life and hates what they put her through, but values the lessons/privileges they gave her that she can't easily let go of and wants to do better than them while deluding herself about being Harlem's ruler.

    Additionally... I just liked her personality lol. It felt multifaceted. She could be intimidating, she could be sassy, she could be childish, she could be cunning, she could be cowardly, she could be kind, she could be funny, she could be condescending... Yet most of it felt consistent barring some of the crazy moments. And I love unhinged sassy mature lady villains in general lol. She reminds me a bit of Yzma from Emperor's New Groove.

    I have a similar complaint about Bushmaster's uncle because almost every scene with him is about how revenge is bad but Bushmaster won't listen. However, I like him a lot more because his lines were very meaningful and he had great interactions with Bushmaster. And once he got taken hostage, I felt so bad for him. Not even just for how he died, but how his resolve broke down and he understood why Mariah should be killed. That hit me deep. And I actually felt awful during the Jamaican massacre. Scenes like that usually impress me in seeing how devious the villain is, but no, I felt the true horror and sadness of those innocent and how disgustingly scary Mariah was.

    I don't care about Mariah's daughter. Don't get me wrong, the actress is fine and all of her reactions are understandable (although she had that weird sexually tense scene when she met Luke and felt his muscles. So glad she wasn't a love interest). But alls he ever does is react to awful Mariah is or how sympathetic Bushmaster is. She's not an interesting character at all on her own. So I don't care about her becoming the Nightshade villain from the comics or whatever. And being mad that Luke inherited Harlem's Paradise instead of her is stupid.

    Shades romance with Mariah felt forced and out of nowhere at the beginning, but I honestly like the direction and drama they pulled out of it with Comanche and the breakup with Mariah. I like how levelheaded and confrontational he is. Especially during the police confession scene. I liked getting a refresher on season 1 because I barely remembered anything yet the show kept briefly referencing plot points. I love how he laughed at how Tone died "like a little bitch. It was perfect" lol.

    It's weird how they never showed any flashback scenes with Cottonmouth in them. Along with not having him show up during the Stokes hallucination scene with Mariah. I guess they didn't want to pay any royalties to Mahershala Ali. Maybe he costs too much since he's a big name Oscar-winning movie actor now, who knows?

    I know you complained about this in the thread, but I kind of liked Luke's anger problems. I like the idea of Luke getting fed up with depraved criminals like the abuser and getting taken for granted as a hero or mistreated like at Piranha's party. But that didn't go anywhere, and they kept having characters like Clair annoyingly pin it on him running away from his father when I didn't get that at all. His father is only ever relevant when he himself is in the scene or when somebody brings him up to make a BS point. I'm glad that Claire left though. I like her, but I feel like she wouldn't have served much purpose in this season. Although they could have tied her into the Nightshade plot and Mairah's daughter, maybe.

    I liked how they focused on her injury ramifications in the first few episodes and her relationship with Scarfe. I felt like Misty uncovered Scarfe's deception way too quickly and conveniently in season one. Seeing more of his charismatic personality and Misty being tempted to circumvent the rules like he did was very interesting. But then she settles for being the police commissioner and backs down from pursuing vigilantism for no good reason.

    And maybe it's just me, but something irks me whenever she interacts with someone for an investigation/arrest/interrogation and acts so high and mighty. I tell myself that's just her technique as a cop to intimidate suspicious people into spilling the beans, but I still feel like she can be too much of a jerk.

    I'm on episode 13 of Luke Cage season two now.
    Spoiler:
    I don't like how Mariah was willing to spare Sugar (which is very cool, I like how she remembered his generosity and I like Sugar's character in general. He should be more major in the plot as someone who gives the perspective of a low level gangster who has morals and is trying to support his family) but not her council assistant. She is a hardcore villain, but one who is very multifaceted and values fervent loyalty above all else. To the point that she rewards those loyal to her with safety or even romance. That aspect of her is a cool part that gives depth, which I don't like seeing tarnished hypocritically. He's been there to support her since the start, never snitched, and they even got to flirting levels. It feels wrong.
