Danny is assigned to psychiatrist Paul Edmonds, to whom Danny reiterates his true identity. Harold watches Danny through the hospital's surveillance system, and sends Ward to offer Wing money in exchange for her testimony against Danny; she refuses after talking to Danny in the hospital.

Harold secretly visits Danny, who reveals that he has become the Iron Fist and sworn enemy of the Hand. Danny is able to convince Joy of his identity, but Ward is not convinced.

Danny explains to Edmonds that following the plane crash, he was saved by two monks and taken to K'un-Lun, another dimension that is connected to the Earth periodically. It was there that he trained in martial arts and gained the power of the Iron Fist.

Edmonds is not convinced, and diagnoses Danny as suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Harold asks Ward to move Danny to a safe place where he can be useful, but Ward instead orders his men, disguised as patients at the hospital, to kill Danny. The latter uses the power of the Iron Fist to overpower them and escape.
