Serving the Hand
Punishment through Pain
In order to punish Harold Meachum, Madame Gao send Alexi and Vando to his penthouse. Alexi questioned Meachum about Danny Rand, wondering why he had failed to tell them that rand is the legendary Iron Fist. Meachum tried to assure them that Rand does not even know that he is alive and that he has no knowledge of the iron fist.
Alexi told Meachum that he might be telling the truth and might just be a fool, but he still had to be punished. Alexi took a knife out of his pocket, while Vando grabbed Meachums hand and placed it on the table. Alexi explained that Vando was a fool twice and lost his multiple fingers and his tongue as a reminder. He wondered how big of a reminder Meachum would need.
Before being able to punish Meachum, Meachum sweared that he has nothing to do with Danny Rand, who at the same moment entered the penthouse in order to discuss a problem. Alexi got distracted by this, which gave Meachum the chance to grab the knife and stab him to death.
