Where did Shades get that file from that exonerated Luke? Did I miss a point where he acquired that? It seemed to come out of nowhere for such a pivotal plot element. Did he get it while he was at Seagate?
In the scene, Luke has collapsed in his father's church, and this occurs about an hour later, after he's woken up. He's the same fully grown man he is in all the episodes, so I don't understand what this means.
I’ve been thinking about this for a couple days now. What would happen if Luke Cage was affected with the snap?
Would he dust? Would he fight it? Could he survive the snap?
My current theory is that his healing cells would fight the dusting and resist the snap. Would love to hear more detail from people who know more than me and what your current theories are!
Can anyone recall episodes where Cage reads or mentions a book or author? I read some blogs that say Cage mentions Zora Neale Hurston and Langston Hughes. Do you know in which episode he does?
This is one of the blog posts I read.
I’ve just finished watching season one of Luke Cage and I go straight to season two and suddenly Luke’s put of prison mistie has one arm and everything’s a mess. I need help! Should I watch the defenders next, or Jessica jones or anything else. Please bear in mind that I can’t watch iron fist or daredevil and that I have full access to Netflix otherwise.
In Greek mythology, the house of Atreus is cursed when Myrtilus was killed by Pelops, an ancestor of Atreus. Atreus has a son, Agamemnon, who's killed by his wife, Clytemnestra, after sacrificing his daughter so he could get to Troy to fight the Trojan War. Agamemnon's son, Orestes, has to kill Clytemnestra in order to avenge his father and ends the curse (with some help from Athena, but that's kind of irrelevant).
I wonder the reference to Atreus is supposed to parallel his family with the Stokes. Like the House of Atreus, the Stokes family history is a ton of rape, incest, and parricide. Tilda is a rough parallel to Orestes, since she also kills her mother (who killed Cornell, who maybe wasn't her father figure but was certainly a close relative like Agamemnon was to Orestes) to "end the curse" on the Stokes.
I think it parallels too much to be a coincidence and is a cool easter egg.
I know a bunch of people here say they hated Diamondback as a villain and that he ruined the second half of the first season, but I really don't get why people think this. Cottonmouth was a great villain yes, and he did die a bit early but his death made sense for me. And honestly, I found Diamondback to actually be a much greater threat than Cottonmourth, and I really, really enjoyed him, perhaps even more than Cottonmouth. I loved him because he was really smart, he was unafraid, and he was extremely unpredictable. Every time he appeared onscreen I felt this sense of constant dread and anxiety, no idea what he was going to do. I love villains who are crazy because anything can happen.
Basically, I think that people don't like him because: A) He replaced Cottonmouth who died in the middle of the season and Cottonmouth was a well written villain. B) His motivations were childish. C) The references he made were considered bad. D) He isn't relatable and has no tragic backstory.
For me, Diamondback didn't have to have a tragic backstory. I know that Fisk, Cottonmouth, and Kilgrave had them, but I also like villains who occasionally are not relatable because they're just terrible people. There are plenty people out there today who are just evil just because they are. And it was refreshing not to have every single villain have a tragic backstory. But yeah, I don't get the criticism for him, I think the actor did a great job, and he was so much more unpredictable and smarter than Cottonmouth, and I hope we see him in a third season.
As I was watching the second season, my mind began to drift. It wasn’t super compelling so I made a mental list of the little ways in which Luke’s unbreakable skin is a plus!
He wouldn’t get stung by a bee or bitten by mosquitos. No such thing as paper cuts. He could go swimming in the ocean and not worry about sharks, he could fight one if he wanted! (I’m Australian, we’re always worried about sharks.) He could push beached whales back into the ocean. He could pick up an echidna and not get spiked.
The list goes on but for me, it’s the little things. Like shark fighting.
I hated Mariah, she was cruel, impatient, with not a decent bone in her body, and I'm glad she is dead.... but just how disturbing was it for you people to watch her tell Tilda she was raped by her uncle who impregnated her with Tilda? I'm not talking about the writing or acting (which was beyond phenomenal, one of the best scenes in the entire show), just the reveal of it all. Like I wasn't expecting this at all, it was some really fucked up shit.
One has to wonder, when Luke and Danny went by Harlem's Paradise in 2x10, what would've happened if they'd gone upstairs and found Mariah was holding Anansi captive there. Would they just scoop him up and take him out of the club without Mariah being able to do much or would she and Shades have put up a fight? For that matter, part of me wonders whether instead of hunting down the lab making the nightshade, they'd be spending that time trying to protect Anansi and Ingrid from retaliation by Mariah.
