This is a season finale so there will probably be some spoilers along the way. Be warned if you haven’t finished Jessica Jones, Season 2.
Things are looking bad for a lot of the main characters on Cloak and Dagger. “Back Breaker” is well named. Tyrone got what he wanted and nothing’s better, Tandy had her dreams smashed, and O’Reilly suffered a major tragedy last time. Now they all have to deal with it.
After the disturbing end of “Pork Chop,” Jessica has a lot to deal with in “AKA Three Lives and Counting.”
I’ve heard some people complaining about the slow build in Cloak and Dagger. Personally, I’m enjoying it and I think it’s fine storytelling.
Most of the titles for the Jessica Jones episodes make some sort of sense, and are often direct quotes from someone. If that’s the case for “AKA Pork Chop,” I missed it.
I’ve been reading comic books since the mid-80’s and watching them on screen since the first Christopher Reeve Superman, Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman, and those horrible cheesy 70’s live action movies of both Captain America and Spider-Man.
My usual warnings, this is a season finale, so there will be spoilers. Read at your own risk, you are warned, etc, etc.
Time loops are a popular trope in science fiction, fantasy, and superhero stories. Recently, they’ve been in the Dr. Strange movie, an episode of Legends of Tomorrow, and the season finale of Supergirl. Now, it’s Cloak and Dagger’s turn in “The Lotus Eaters.”
