Weaver's goal wasn't that nebulous. She and the rest of the Fingers of the Hand were out of the juice/substance they used to extend their lives. Weaver's body was breaking down due to no more of the substance available as she used the last of it on Elektra.
The substance appears likely to be the marrow from the bones they were collecting at the end.
Weaver wants the plan accelerated as she still wants to live as do the rest of the Fingers of the Hand, but she is the one that is dying while the others are still okay. Accelerating the plan is what inevitably leads to its ruin.
Madame Gao even warned her that accelerating things would be bad and they would be noticed.
Also, if any of the Fingers have survived it would be Gao. We don't know her full power and she knew the clock was ticking on the bombs, she might have escaped after she told the other one that The End was coming.
However, it is safe to say that the majority of the Hand is gone. Some soldiers are likely still around, mainly the ones not in the tunnel, and it is likely that Elektra is still around so she could lead them and rebuild the Hand.
As to IRON FIST....well this series was essentially the continuation of season 1 of his show with the addition of wrapping up loose ends from Daredevil. Jessica and Luke were swept into the story by circumstances.
Season 2 of Iron Fist has been ordered and may it significantly improve over season 1. I didn't hate Season 1 but there IS room for improvement.
