TV Review: Marvel’s Luke Cage S1E9 DWYCK

Luke Cage PosterWith Luke wounded and on the run, Misty faces a soul-searching interrogation. Mariah’s rise to power takes a dark turn.

Marvel’s Luke Cage has gotten interesting in that some details become clearer if you’ve watched Jessica Jones and if you haven’t, I’m not quite sure what one will think. It’s some minor things when it really comes down to it, but they help paint a bigger picture.

Really the episode is about Mariah, who makes some decisions as to what she wants to do now that her brother is out of the picture.

That takes a turn and it’s a turn that’s predictable in so many ways and also something we’ve seen many times in other films. It does give us a better idea about Mariah and what she’s like.

What’s mentioned in the episode is what’s really interesting I think. There’s mention of the superhero problem, bringing things into a bigger picture and making me wonder how this might lead into the bigger story of the Defenders thats to come.

It’s a decent episode that’s stronger as part of the whole than on its own.

Overall Rating: 8.05
