“The Basement,” the sixth episode of Luke Cage’s second season, picks up where the fifth episode left off, Luke shielding Piranha Jones as they run from the horde of Bushmaster’s gunmen.
After the surprise at the end of last episode, Luke is dealing with the newest complication in his life with the help of another Marvel/Netflix supporting character.
Last episode’s surprising ending, with Bushmaster sucker-punching Luke and knocking him flat, gets repeated in the next one, “I Get Physical.”
After the shocking ending of “Straighten It Out,” thing are looking bad for Luke in his third episode, “Wig Out.” Which is exactly what he did.

After the first episode, which was largely set up, Luke Cage and company continue their adventures in “Straighten It Out.”
Luke Cage is back for his second season, and the “Hero of Harlem” has problems coming for him. “Soul Brother #1” is the first episode of the season, and it starts the set up after a helpful recap of first season.
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.
