Kung Fu Season 1 Episode four Evaluate: Hand

Spoilers

A terrific episode paves the way in which for extra pleasure to come back.

Nicky lastly ended up being one step forward of Zhilan in Kung Fu Season 1 Episode 4.

Althea had an emotionally taxing episode that will have affected her greater than we all know.

A Tension Filled Dinner - Kung Fu

In earlier episodes, Althea had hinted at emotional trauma that also affected her, and we lastly get to listen to her aspect of the story.

In an exquisite dialog with Nicky, Althea revealed that an previous boss sexually assaulted her. I had a hunch that this had been what occurred, however listening to it confirmed broke my coronary heart. Althea is a powerful character, and seeing her lastly confide in Nicky made her stronger.

I imagine that within the coming episodes, we’ll get extra from her aspect of this story. She has a tough street forward, and if she decides to go to the reporter who’s been attempting to persuade her to come back ahead, extra emotional trauma will come to gentle.

Althea had so many heart-wrenching moments and the dinner with the Soongs was no exception.

Dennis Soong’s dad and mom got here to the Shen restaurant to have a dinner, a dinner that determined Althea’s “Price.”

Issues have been high-quality, after which Mr. Soong requested Althea to signal a prenup. Althea and Dennis have been speechless by this growth.

Althea already handled the reporter revealing that one other lady dropped out of the article on the boss, and now she needed to take the emotional beating from Dennis’s dad and mom.

Seh felt unaccepted, unloved, and worst of all, nugatory — which launched her into one of the crucial stunning speeches I’ve seen on tv.

Mrs. Soong: Can I simply say, my mom’s necklace appears pretty on you.
Althea: I am I price extra with it on? Is that why you gave it to me?
Mrs. Soong: I am sorry?
Althea: That is what tonight was about proper? My bridal value? And now with this prenup… my goal worth? Let’s simply say it out loud and do it in writing! However we cannot do it in {dollars} as a result of that may be cheesy. What about… geese! What number of geese am I price? Hmm? Let’s have an public sale. I am going to open up the bidding at 4 geese for my legs. Do I hear 4 geese?
Or what about my mind? I obtained a twenty duck mind uh do I hear twenty-five? No? Okay. Uh what about my physique? I have been advised I’ve good curves for a Chinese language Woman!
Mei-Li: Althea?
Althea: Why am I negotiating? The article by no means has a say in what she’s price.

The speech was seemingly foolish (as a result of geese) however ended up being extraordinarily severe and an allegory to how girls are seen all over the world at this time.

Althea and Nicky - Kung Fu Season 1 Episode 4

Althea lastly let her true emotions come out. Though she has but to disclose to others about her sexual assault, seeing her let her emotion out was unforgettable.

For me, Althea has change into my favourite character. There may be nonetheless a lot we now have to be taught from her, and I like seeing her emotional progress.

The expansion occurred all through the entire household through the hour. Mei-Li and Jin discovered to respect Althea extra as a powerful younger girl than their little lady.

Mei-Li’s gradual understanding of Nicky and her progress over her three years departed has been very pure. I take pleasure in watching their mother-daughter dynamic develop and heal.

Mei-Li: Did you see the pair of pants Althea was sporting at this time? It appeared prefer it was fabricated from stable gold. A gift from Mrs. Soong.
Jin: Stable gold pants huh? Sounds uncomfortable.

Ryan did not get progress with the Shen household. As a substitute, he obtained some romantic enhance in his private life.

Jin and Mei-Li - Kung Fu

As I mentioned final week, seeing range in LGBTQ relationships on tv just isn’t widespread. It is rather encouraging to see a budding interracial relationship make its means onto screens.

Talking of romance, Henry and Nicky’s slow-burn will-they/gained’t-they relationship lastly got here to a second — they kissed.

In a profoundly transferring scene the place Henry reveals his legal previous to Nicky, Nicky grew to become so moved by his candor that she kissed him.

The kiss was very pure and felt properly foreshadowed all through the outing (and the sequence).

I really feel that the already excessive rigidity between Henry and Evan will escalate within the close to future. Evan broke Nicky’s, and in flip, Henry’s belief by performing a background verify on Henry.

Nicky Shen in restaurant - Kung Fu Season 1 Episode 4

Evan overstepped in Nicky’s life, and she or he didn’t take that truth frivolously.

I feel that is what partially drove Nicky to kiss Henry — she now is aware of that Henry is probably the most reliable particular person out of two.

I predict awkwardness between these two males sooner or later and probably a confrontation. They’re each very headstrong males.

Talking of headstrong Males — Zhilan’s thief was a pressure to be reckoned with, and we obtained to see Nicky defeated for the primary time since her battle with Zhilan in China.

The story of the traditional field was fascinating, and seeing Nicky need to push herself was terrific.

Nicky Shen front of restaurant - Kung Fu Season 1 Episode 4

The overarching story was the one case this week, and the present stood out due to it. The case of the week tales work properly for Kung Fu, like final week’s manufacturing unit lady story, however the characters are finest served with their respective prolonged storylines.

Althea, along with her emotional evolution, Nicky with the weapons, and the Shen dad and mom with their acceptance of Nicky all steadiness one another properly.

The investigation that Henry and Nicky carried out this spherical was fascinating, they usually made important headway.

Nicky: It was her
Henry: Zhilan? You certain she had one thing to do with this?
Nicky: Give it some thought! The one cause we obtained the important thing and began this entire quest is due to what we present in Professor Chau’s workplace. She kidnapped Chau!
Henry: Most likely worse…
Nicky: Precisely. Who is aware of what she obtained out of him earlier than then.

 Nicky challenged Zhilan’s thief to a good battle and gained, and she or he took no matter was within the field because the prize.

The contents of the field? The sword’s scabbard. Zhilan knew she wanted the scabbard to make the sword activate its full energy, so with out it, she has to rethink her entire plan.

Jin Eating - Kung Fu Season 1 Episode 4

This episode was the strongest one to date. If the present continues to progress on this course, I shall be very happy as a result of all the characters and storylines are evolving easily.

So Kung Fu Fanatics! What did you consider tonight?

What did you consider Althea’s superbly emotional speech?

Are you glad that Nicky lastly beat Zhulan to a bit of the puzzle?
