The gang war between the Golden Tigers and the Yangsi Gonshi threatens to escalate despite Danny Rand's best efforts. Members of the Yangshi Gonshi surround and fatally wound a Golden Tigers member; the soldier dies in Danny's arms. With the gang war hotting up, Albert tells Danny not to come into work since he is keeping his guys off the streets.
As Danny heads home, he finds Mary in Coffee A Go-Go. They talk, and Danny walks her to a place where she can draw flowers that is away from Chinatown. As they walk, Mary becomes fascinated with a church spire, and Danny starts to believe that she may have accepted the offer of a walk because she was attracted to him. He makes it clear he lives with his girlfriend, causing Mary some embarrassment. Mary becomes a little disorientated so Danny takes her to his home and introduces her to Colleen. While there, Mary reverts to her Walker personality while in the bathroom then leaves abruptly.
Colleen Wing heads to Bayard Community Center to talk with Sam Chung about the donation made by Frank Choi, but there is no record of it. Colleen learns that the principal funder of Bayard is Sherry Yang, the wife of Yangsi Gonshi leader Hai-Qing Yang, and that she is holding a charity gambling night at the center that evening. Colleen heads to Frank Choi's to try and find more information, but on the way she is waylaid by members of Ryhno's Gang. BB threatens her with a gun but she disarms him and then tracks them back to their hideout. After a tense confrontation, Colleen explains that she fought Ryhno and his gang at the Silver Lotus to stop them being targeted by the Golden Tigers. As she leaves, Colleen tells them that Bayard will offer them food and sanctuary. In private, BB apologizes for pulling a gun on her, explaining that he had to do what Ryhno ordered to stay part of the gang.
Danny visits Hai-Qing Yang, hoping that their previous alliance against the Hand will allow him to negotiate an end to the blood feud. However, Yang cannot give up – the driver of the armored car that the Golden Tigers killed when they hijacked it was Yang's nephew. He ordered the hit on the Golden Tigers member that died in Danny's arms to draw out their leadership for a hit.
Ward Meachum tries to get to the bottom of Joy Meachum's plans with the patents that she acquired in her divestment. Ward is unnecessarily harsh to his assistant, Katie, but apologizes. She informs him that Joy will be attending a reception at Bailey's Auction House that evening.
At Bailey's Joy meets her old friend, Mika Prada, curator of the collection of Ernst Erskine. Ward arrives and talks with Joy, but leaves angry that she is aware of his NA meetings. He also meets Davos, who is in attendance. Mika shows Joy and Davos a bowl from Erskine's collection, which Davos insists they must have. He is prepared to kill Mika to obtain the bowl, but Joy stops him.
With the war between the Yangsi Gonshi and Golden Tigers about to enter a new phase, Danny and Colleen appeal to Sherry Yang to get her husband to enter peace talks. Sherry manages to get Yang to agree to the negotiations.
At Joy's apartment, Joy convinces Davos to seduce Mika in order to obtain the bowl. Mika's husband is a congressman seeking re-election, and Joy knows that she would do anything to avoid scandal. Davos dislikes the idea, but goes along with it. The entire tryst is recorded on a computer.
Davos goes to see Hai-Qing Yang about his shipment. However, Yang returns the money since he can no longer guarantee delivery. The Red Hook Pier is part of the negotiation strategy with the Golden Tigers, and Yang may not be in control of the docks for much longer. Davos is apparently impressed with his code of honor and brokering peace, but uses an ancient technique that will cause a stroke on Yang.
Recurring flashbacks show the fight between Danny and Davos to find out who will face Shou-Lao. The duel, staged before Yü-Ti, Lei Kung, and Priya, is to the death or submission. The fight is long and hard, and Davos eventually seems to be the victor, but constantly asks Danny to yield rather than kill him. Danny refuses and rallies. As the fight turns in Danny's favor, and Davos is on the verge of being killed, Lei Kung calls the fight and declares that Danny will face Shou-Lao.
