They needed to flip a coin or something with these characters (or maybe that’s what they were doing ), which could have saved them time as well as cut episodes down and/or shorten the season.
That's when you realize they are running out of ideas. Another good example is Luke and Misty's stance on Mariah. It keeps going back and forth with each episode. We could probably say the same about her daughter's stance. In hindsight, maybe it would have worked best if they did what they did last season and devoted one half of the season to one villain (Mariah) and the second half to the other (Bushmaster).

Anyway, what I’ve read was that Tilda was supposed to have gotten the club but because she slipped up when she called Mariah “mother” instead of “mommy”, she quickly amended her will.
Indeed that's true. At that point I think Mariah realized that Tilda had her own agenda for visiting her in prison and hadn't truly forgiven her. She didn't suspect that she had poisoned her, but she clearly sensed that something was off. Maybe she also felt that the club and the night life would corrupt her daughter and wanted to put that burden on Luke's shoulders instead.

Regarding him being a crime boss, I think the implication was that this kind of lifestyle will affect his morals. Maybe not to the degree that it did Mariah or Cottonmouth's (although from what I hear, the same artist who was performing during the last scene was also performing at the club when Cottonmouth was in charge!), but it could make him a darker person. And maybe it will lead to a mini Defenders reunion with Jessica, Danny and Matt returning to bring him back to his senses.

The Shades/Camacho scene where they’re just sitting there with backs to each other just having a conversation was beautifully done and it telegraphed what eventually happened.
Agreed.

I loved that combo move they pulled; I wonder what other little tricks they could do with Danny’s iron fist and Luke’s invulnerability.
Yeah, the Iron Fist bouncing off Luke's hand. That was cool. I was also surprised to see Danny only stick around for one episode (especially given how popular the team is in the comics), but I'm guessing they didn't want Danny to "steal Luke's thunder" in any way.
