According to the synopsis of the episode, Sunny and MK try to figure out how to control the boy's power. Meanwhile, Quinn sets a dangerous parlay with a rival Baron to help fight The Widow.

As seen in the teaser of the episode, a blood stained teenager named Tilda (Ally Loannides) cries for help at a jeep passing by. However, when the two men inside the jeep get out and approach her, a group of women attacks them and immediately kills them.

Daniel Wu, the 41-year-old actor who serves both as executive producer and the lead star on the show, said that it was not always clear that he would be a primary player in the program.

In an interview with Collider, he said, "I originally thought we would get somebody in their late 20s or early 30s because, physically, it's a very, very demanding role."

He further said that when the initial idea didn't work, the crew members decided to put him in the lead role.

"Being an Asian star in such a prominent TV role is a great honour, as well as a kind of responsibility, I never considered the gravity of my achievement with much seriousness," he said.

He also said that he didn't really think about what the impact of him being an Asian American male playing a lead role in the show, until much later.

He talked about his knowledge of Asian martial arts and icon Bruce Lee who helped him to understand the significance of his role.

"It was a great feeling to be able to do this show, knowing the history of Kung Fu, the TV series that Bruce Lee tried to get going, but then was stolen from him because studios were not ready to put someone Chinese in the lead," he added. "It felt really great to be able to right that wrong."
