Alexandra asks Madame Gao for a favor
Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra has a plan in mind, and Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho) isn’t going to stand in the way.
When the two The Defenders antagonists meet in Central Park, Gao offers an update on their mysterious mission, saying that at this rate, they’ll accomplish what they set out to do in roughly seven months. Alexandra isn’t pleased, however: She tells Gao she needs them (“them” likely means the Hand) to move up their timetable, and when Gao bristles, Alexandra doesn’t bat an eyelash. Gao says a faster pace will draw attention to their cause, and Alexandra responds, “I’m aware.” She then stands up to leave, leaving Gao reeling. “Finish feeding the birds, will you?” Hey, at least Alexandra cares for the health of New York City’s animal dwellers.
