While in many ways it is the era of hero tv (and movies), 2019 carved a bloody swath through the shows that were around. This is my look back at the series that didn’t make it to 2020.
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.
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.
Cloak and Dagger are almost through with their second season (and no word as yet on a third as of this writing). The show is getting a bit more stylistic as it goes, with some big analogies to what the characters are going through. Usually, that kind of thing bothers me, but I have to admit, they’re pulling it off really well (and not getting anywhere near as surreally hard to follow as Fox’s Legion).
Things are taking a turn for the metaphysical on Cloak and Dagger. With the reveal last episode that not only is Andre not the good guy he seemed to be, but he has powers, also tied to the infamous Roxxon rig explosion, we finally see who our big bad is for the season
The motif of the record store as some kind of supernatural crossroads popped up earlier this season. It gets looked at a lot more closely in this episode, which is mostly different versions of Tandy’s life.
In the months between seasons, Cloak and Dagger both practiced with their powers and gained some new ones. That’s been both complicating and enriching this season, with some cool new tricks from both characters, and a lot better control.
The narrative time jumping continues on Cloak and Dagger as we learn more about Mayhem. This is the surprise duplicate of Detective Bridget O’Reilly that we saw at the end of last season, but didn’t realize at the time.
After what felt like a really long break, Cloak and Dagger comes back for a second season with a two-parter that starts with “White Lines.”
This is a season finale, so, as usual, there are likely going to be spoilers. Be warned.
