It is pretty fair to say that Season 1 of Iron Fist did not receive the best reception from both the critics and fans of Marvel television shows. In fact, it looked as though the TV show was of such a low quality that the only way was up. As it turns out, Season 2 of Iron Fist has received better reviews and one of the stars of this Netflix show is Jessica Henwick who plays the character of Colleen Wing. In an interview with Collider, she discussed a lot of things about this second season of Iron Fist.

Indeed, one topic of discussion was, in Jessica Henwick’s opinion, how Season 2 of Iron Fist built upon the best aspects of Season 1:
“For me, last season, I definitely loved early Colleen and getting to find, discover, and learn about this woman who is struggling to make ends meet. She’s abandoned the warrior code that she was taught to live by, so that she could be in the fight club, and she actually really fucking liked it. She was addicted.”
“I loved Colleen, top and tail. The end to her story really got me last season, where she had to fight Bakuto, who’s pretty much her surrogate father, and standing over him, in the rain at Central Park, and Davos saying, ‘Do it,’ and her saying, ‘No, because then I’ll be just like him.’ I think that was the crux of Colleen, and I loved getting to tell that story.”
“In terms of building on that, we find quite a different Colleen, this season. She’s gone through a great tragedy. She had to chop the head off her surrogate father, and she hasn’t really dealt with it. She’s compartmentalized, so the easiest thing for her to do was to just close up shop. She closed the Dojo.”
“She was like, ‘I’m not teaching anymore.’ She doesn’t go to the fight clubs anymore. She hung up her katana. She’s effectively just living off of Danny’s money and doing volunteer charity work. It’s really a very different Colleen that we find.”
