Kevin tells them that they have a visitor: Ward. Ward says that he has to talk to Joy alone, and she agrees. Harold tells Kevin to call the hospital and find out how Ward was released. Meanwhile, Ward asks Joy to leave with him. She says that they're in the middle of freeing Rand from the Hand. Ward tells her that Harold is using her and she needs to get away from Harold.

The Hand agents shoot down Harold's security men when they go for their guns, and Bakuto asks everyone to sit down.

He shoots Joy in the side, and Ward goes to put pressure on the wound. Bakuto says that if they get Joy to the hospital in thirty minutes, she'll be okay. However, if Danny isn't there in a half-hour, he'll kill them all.
Danny prepares to go, and Davos says that he's not going. He figures there's no reason to care about the Meachums, and says that they'll take Bakuto down once he leaves the penthouse. Danny refuses, telling Davos that he doesn't tell him what to do, and leaves.
Twenty eight minutes later, Bakuto gives Joy something for the pain. Joy doesn't believe that Danny would abandon them, Time runs out and Bakuto prepares to decapitate Harold. He asks if Harold has any last words, and Harold apologizes to Joy for choosing a failure like Ward over her. He tells her to never trust Ward again, and says that he loves her. Harold then tells Bakuto that he's ready.
Danny comes in and tells Bakuto to stop, and Harold goes to Joy. Danny goes to her as well and Bakuto says that once they leave, Joy will get medical attention. Bakuto insists on putting handcuffs on Danny, and then tells Ward that now he knows how to get rid of Harold for good. Danny realizes that Ward set the whole thing up, Harold tells Joy that Danny is making a noble sacrifice for them, and says that he'll get her to the hospital.

Davos stops Danny from interfering, and Colleen finally stabs Bakuto in the chest. Bakuto collapses but Colleen refuses to kill him because it will make them no better than them. She figures that they should call the police, and Bakuto asks Danny if he wants to be an assassin.
Davos steps forward and kills Bakuto, and tells Danny that his duty is to kill the Hand. He figures that Danny couldn't do it because he isn't a warrior but a failure. Danny attacks him and Davos knocks him down, and Danny figures that it's because he left Davos. They continue fighting and Danny finally takes Davos down. He tells Davos to yield, but Davos renews his attack and Danny knocks him down, his hand around his throat. He summons the Fist and says that he was selfish for leaving, but he's learned that the Fist isn't for just K'un-Lun. Danny says that he's the Iron Fist, then lets the Fist fade. Davos gets up and Danny wishes that he could understand. His former friend says that he never will, and that the pass is open to K'un-Lun and no one is guarding it. Davos warns that there will be consequences and walks away.
Danny and Colleen turn to Bakuto's body, and realize that it's gone. They figure that the Hand operatives took it, and Danny points out that Harold came back from the dead.
The next morning, Harold and Ward take Joy to the hospital. The doctors take her away and Harold goes to the ER. He looks at the sick people with disgust, and then tells Ward that he thought of how he turned against his father.
