DC Universe’s Doom Patrol series set a high bar with their first episode. Fortunately, they were just as good in their second. “Donkey Patrol” has the right touch of action, absurdity, and general weirdness that fits most incarnations of the team.
So far in season six of Agents of SHIELD, Jeff Ward, who plays Deke Shaw, has been in the credits, but his roguish character hasn’t been seen or even mentioned. They change that up with “Code Yellow.”
Cloak and Dagger get to the end of their second season in “Level Up.” They’ve used video games as an analogy before, and it makes sense for the end of a difficult struggle for two up and coming heroes.
Tensions are rising in New Seattle, and things are looking ugly for just about everyone, really. I’ve always admired this show’s willingness and ability to change up the status quo, and they keep doing that.
SHIELD’s Earthbound contingent gets a break this week as we focus on the Very Far Away Team. The saga of Fitz and Enoch, as well as Daisy’s group, both continue as they have adventures that veer a lot more comedic than usual this episode.
Iron Fist’s second season continues with “The Dragon Dies at Dawn.” This, as with the other titles this season, is borrowed from an earlier comic; in this case, Iron Fist 9 from 1976. We see Danny dealing with his loss, an attempted family reconciliation, and Davos working on his own list but only needing to check it once.
Cloak and Dagger are almost done with their second season. There are some seriously not good developments in the future, and a fair amount of backstory on two of the villains from eight years ago forward.
