We left off last week with B-Ball Duane, on the precipice of redemption, being shot dead by Detective O’Reilly and, in the aftermath, Tyrone cloaking to Tandy’s church and having an inconsolable breakdown. Meanwhile, Tandy learned that the man who may be the centerpiece of her entire Roxxon investigation is catatonic and unresponsive – even to her Hope visions.
As we begin tonight’s episode, out dynamic Duo is at an impasse. Let’s see if they can break the stagnation. Our deep dive recap & review begins … after the jump (spoilers spoilers spoilers)!
The Bold Type “The Feminist Army” (Episode 201) June 12, 2018
End of Season 1 we left The Bold Type with Jane Sloan leaving her job at Scarlet for an up and coming digital magazine called Insight where she would get her own vertical. Kat was taking time off from her job to travel with Adena while she figures out her work Visa. And lastly, Sutton broke things off with Richard and is newly single but she snagged the job in the fashion department as Oliver’s new assistant and can’t wait to crush it in this new role.
I know this isn’t a ton of detail as far as season 1 goes but give me a little bit and I will have a full season 1 (broken into halves) posted soon. Watch for it… until then you can catch Season 1 & 2 on Hulu or the FreeForm app.
Before watching (or reading about) tonight’s new episode of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, make sure you’re caught up with our recap here!
When last we left our intrepid and budding heroes, Ty had just lost the big state finals basketball game (maybe on purpose?) and Tandy found an interesting thread in her Roxxon investigation – a thread I have to imagine she pulls on tonight (patience isn’t Tandy’s thing, really).

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger
“Call/Response” (Episode 104)
June 21, 2018
Can I tell you how much I am loving Cloak & Dagger? A lot. I am loving it a lot. That was anti-climatic, I know. The writing is so strong and the acting by these two young leads sells the viewer completely on the 8,000 emotions going on in any given scene.
More than that, they are taking their time with pacing and let the show unfold organically BUT, they are using fantastic narrative devices to do it. Last week’s episode from two POVs and tonight’s “call” and “response” approach … it keeps you on your toes, it makes you pay attention. C&D is saying, “Hey, I am important and you need to put down your 3 other things you’re doing and watch me – or else you’re going to miss something good..” There is NOTHING rote or predictable about this show and man, can you ask for anything more?
Before you read on for this week’s recap & review, make sure you know where we are from last week. Ready? Good. Our deep dive recap and review … after the jump (Spoilers Warning)!!
Before reading and watching tonight’s episode of Cloak & Dagger, make sure you catch up with my recaps from Episode 1, “First Light,”and Episode 2, “Suicide Sprints.”
Quick reminder that last week ended with Tandy, still driving her stolen “Just Married” convertible, taking a bullet from Tyrone – Tyrone having apparated in front of her just as he was trying to kill Connors, the bad cop. Ty, man. You have to learn to control your Cloak skills. For. Real.
On to the episode recap & review … after the jump (Spoilers Ahead)!!!
We are back with episode two of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger and this one, which premiered back to back with the Pilot, continues to fill in the story of our teenage superheroes and their life struggles and backgrounds. This isn’t a CW Arrow-verse show, there are no superhero costumes yet … we are taking our time getting to know Tandy and Tyrone as people – flawed people (especially Tandy) – who they are, what their lives are like, what their powers are, and how they work.
Before you read tonight’s recap, make sure you know everything happened with our recap from last week here!
Once you’re ready, catch up with our recap and review …. after the jump (spoilers ahead – be warned)!
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, airing on Freeform, is the newest Marvel TV series to hit the airwaves. Based on the comic books created by Bill Mantlo and artist Ed Hannigan, and following in the footsteps of the most recent installment in the Marvel TV-verse, Hulu’s Runaways, Cloak & Dagger focuses on young superheroes just learning about, and simultaneously coming to grips with, the magnitude of their power.
Comic books shows have a mixed history when it comes to the quality of their storytelling and acting. So far, based on the first two episodes, Cloak & Dagger seems to be avoiding both of these deadly pitfalls. With a deliberate pacing that is in no hurry to rush our protagonists into spandex costumes and emotionally charged and believable turns by leads, Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt, Cloak & Dagger is coming out of the gate with a confidence that screams, “we know what we’re doing, sit back and enjoy the ride we are going to give you.” And so far, I am inclined to agree. Check out the recap of the Pilot episode (Spoilers Warning!) … After the jump!!
