A new synthesized opiate drug is being touted on the streets of New York. Associated with the symbol of Shao Lao the Undying left at Danny’s apartment door by the Yang Clan from the Golden Sands it is linked by Danny Rand (Finn Jones) to the Pier recently acquired by Rand Enterprises as the entry point for the drug into the city. In all the distraction Danny unknowingly compromises himself and Rand Enterprises as he is caught on camera with a lady who has filed a lawsuit for health and environmental damages accepting responsibility for the situation; as he goes to Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) with take-out to ask if she will assist him to check out the Pier as another shipment is imminent. As he arrives at the Dojo he meets a new trainee called Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) who joins them for lunch. With the help of the Steel Serpent’s drug Ward Meachum (Tom Pelphrey) gives the finger to his father Harold Meachum (David Wenham) and tries to forget the mess left by Danny’s actions.
