Kung Fu - Year of the Tiger (Part 2)

The two-part premiere continues, answering some of my questions from "Part 1." Zhilan (Yvonne Chapman) finds a bit of her old spirit and leaves China, although it's still unclear what her new path will be. Mia (Vanessa Yao) continues to be painted more of a frenemy that family for Nicky (Olivia Liang) as she continues to search for answers about her past. And Nicky's plan to take down Russell Tan (Kee Chan) fails, but we do discover some clues to what the businessman is after in his theft of ancient relics.

Speaking of the Tans, the most interesting aspect of the second episode involve the family drama with Kerwin (Ludi Lin) back in the fold and the introduction of his sister Juliette (Annie Q.). The three Tans, and the tension between them, offer several possibilities to the show to explore, especially if one or more of them discover Zhilan's escape. As for the Shens, we get some more restaurant and hacker business to give Nicky's siblings something to do, but I wouldn't have minded spending more time with the Tans instead.
