Super Tuesday Recap: Cloak & Dagger S2E1-S2E2 Review – Split Up
This week, Shanna, The Doctor, and Parrish are back to discuss Marvel's Cloak & Dagger on Freeform. In the two-hour premiere, Ty and Tandy may have switched lifestyles but the dysfunction remains. Ty (Aubrey Joseph) is living in the church while Tandy (Olivia Holt) is back at home with her mom and attending group therapy for domestic violence survivors. Unfortunately, neither one of them is adjusting well. Ty is secretly spying on his family and Evita and Tandy is taking revenge on the abusers of the women in her therapy group. And behind the scenes, Detective Brigid O'Reilly (Emma Lahana) is seemingly having a breakdown after being infected by Roxxon chemicals. She's strung out on pills and barely keeping a hold on her sanity. We also meet three new characters, Lia and Andre (Dilshad Vadsaria and Brooklyn McLinn), counselors at Tandy's group who may know more than they're saying about missing girls in the neighborhood. And Mikayla, one of the DV survivors who is having a hard time getting out of her relationship.
We discuss Ty and Tandy's chemistry (is it romance or friendship?), the layered storytelling and symbolism and most important, MAYHEM! in this supersized episode. Trigger warning: This episode discusses domestic violence.
