    Great episode again today.
    Mayhem is helping, but also playing her own game to escape, it seems.
    Yeah, that was a twist I wasn't expecting, having D'Spayre as a human becoming a literal god (or demon) of despair . . .

    I'm a little confused about the record store. Is it a place in the dark force that anyone with the power to do so can access?

    Loved that fight scene with Ty...gets thrown and teleports to the other side of the guy and pops him from above.

    Aw Ty, if only doing the right thing was as easy as playing a beat em up.

    spoilers:
    I liking the Voodoo gods being real. It's crazy to think this show is willing to go all in with mysticism unlike Iron Fist.
    end of spoilers

    I did like that the game Ty and Tandy were playing was a homage to their backstory in the original comics they debuted in. As for the ascendancy of D'Spayre, I'm guessing that's going to be the crux of the season finale.

    making my way through the first couple of episodes of season one.
    Wow. Surprisingly intriguing. My knowledge of the 1980s era appearances is pretty good, and so I'm getting to appreciate all the updated components.
    .. so Tandy is still a former ballerina.. but parents weren't outright wealthy.. and of course, her father isn't seen for very long.. mom is an alcoholic nurse..
    fortunately this time Tyrone's backstory is given a much more deeper exploration, with both of his parents actively seen, and living a middle-class lifestyle.. nice.. Cloak's backstory and motivations were severely underwritten in the original comics... the backdrop of a Catholic high school is nice.. they even have a scene in church service..
    .. so by the time Tyrone and Tandy first meet, it's her who's the pickpocket, and more adjacent to the "street" world than Ty.. nice reversal..
    the racial conflicts, subtly worked into the dynamics between characters..
    the occasional swearing, the implied sex between Tandy and her boyfriend... wow, wouldn't have figured a Marvel show would go there.. but of course it's not unheard of for teen culture.. just surprising..

    Which would suck immensely. With the evidence uncovered, he goes free . . . but his mother ends up in prison. That's just gonna be heartbreaking.

    You guys really think the priest will tell the FBI about the murder? Every itch of that bathroom was covered in plastic. Unless the cops are keeping watch on her house or she botches the disposal of the body she should get away with it. I hope she does.

    Considering what Connors did, especially near the end of the first season, I can understand that. And speaking of those who (may) deserve to die in a bad way . . . anybody see tonight's episode, especially the end? That finale next week is going to be something.

    Great Luke Cage reference this ep btw.

    This season has really been so much better than S1.

    The Like Cage reference left me curious about the timeline of this series. From the sound of the headline it's referencing the fight Luke had with Diamondback in the season 1 finale.

    I caught the Luke Cage reference but did I not also catch a reference to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? I thought they mentioned government agents going rogue in California which would have been Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 4.

    I liked the finale. I'm really curious if we'll get a third season.
    Tandy and Ty getting together seems like a possibility now.
