Marvel's Cloak & Dagger S01E06 "Funhouse Mirrors" Recap


Auntie Chantelle has Evita help her with channeling in order to study Tyrone and determine the fate of the city. Auntie Chantelle senses that there is disaster coming and that Tyrone's story is central to what will come.

Meanwhile, Tyrone has begun following Duane in order to try to find out the truth regarding the aftermath of his brother's death. He later approaches Duane and asks for a job with him and discovers that one of Duane's associates, Kev, is running drugs for him on the low.

Tandy becomes an intern for Mina in the hopes of getting closer to her and learn more about what their fathers were working on together. Tyrone visits Tandy to tell her about getting threatened by Kev, who had pulled a gun on him. She shares about her own investigations and advises him to steal Kev's bag in order to get his job.

O'Reilly pairs up with Connors for a drug bust in the hopes of learning more about his illicit activities. They end up pursuing Kev and some other locals that take off running during a drug deal. O'Reilly searches for Kev's bag that he had thrown away before running away from Connors but is unable to find it because Tyrone has already snatched it up.

Tandy accompanies Mina on an exploration of a local swamp so they can learn more about the surrounding nature. She learns more about Ivan and Nathan from Mina but their exploration is broken up by a Roxxon employee telling Mina she is needed to repair a pipe. Tandy decides to help her but in the process, Mina is able to deduce whom Tandy really is and leaves due to feeling betrayed by her deception.

Kev catches up to Tyrone and demands his bag back but Tyrone is finally able to access his powers and uses Tyrone's fear against him, causing Kev to run away scared. Tyrone brings the bag back to Duane and asks again for a job and he accepts. Duane takes Tyrone on a drive and says how only white people get justice. He also reveals that he witnessed Billy's death and Tyrone is furious that Duane knew all these years and didn't say anything about it, and even more for working with Connors now.

Tandy follows Mina to a hospital where Ivan is taken care of due to his being in a catatonic state. Tandy apologises to Mina for not telling the truth. Tandy tries to use her powers to access his hope but discovers that she cannot see into his mind due to his condition but is implied to suspect that Tyrone may be able to help him. Still, Mina forgives Tandy for lying.

Auntie Chantelle realises that Tyrone is part of the "Divine Pairing" but does not know whom the other half of it is. According to her, either Tyrone or Tandy will have to die during what is to come.

Connors enters Duane's building and gives him a gun that he demands Duane use to kill O'Reilly whom he plans to lure in. Tyrone is still in the building, hiding, and overhears Connors' plan. However, O'Reilly ends up shooting and killing Duane when she enters, causing Tyrone to cry out. Tyrone runs out of the building and Connors chases after him. He tries to shoot him twice which Tyrone is able to dodge by using his powers, and eventually teleports back to the church where Tandy comforts him as he cries for his dead friend.

Marvel's Cloak & Dagger S01E05 "Princeton Offense" Recap


Tandy goes through the files she retrieved from what was left of Greg's office and begins organising them.

Detective O'Reilly has sex with one of her fellow officers in the back of her squad car before returning to the office to meet with Tyrone, whom Tandy had directed him to as someone he can trust. Tyrone shares how he saw Connors selling drugs he claimed to have lifted from evidence. O'Reilly agrees to help him, saying she isn't sure if she believes him entirely but admits to not trusting Connors. However, she warns Tyrone to stay out of trying to play detective and to leave that to actual police like herself.

Tyrone returns to school and Tandy meets him to apologise for how poorly their last encounter went and reveals that she has learned to control her powers, even manifesting her light dagger in the hallway which he quickly hides using his backpack. She asks Tyrone if the school has a computer lab, wanting to use it to research Roxxon. Tandy prints out some documents, saying there's a hole missing in the middle of the documents she's found which indicate a powerful figure at the center of it all but for now she can only follow the lead of B-list figures in the Roxxon scheme. She shares how she tried to kill herself and it unlocked the key to her not caring about all the other bad things in her life and to instead focus so she can use her powers. She proposes that they use their gifts to try to help right these injustices of their lives. Tyrone is saddened when Evita appears to now only be interested in a platonic relationship with him. Tandy uses her light dagger to break into some cheerleader lockers to steal some clothes in her size.

Tyrone returns home and accidentally teleports to Billy's friend Duane Porter who is now all grown up and runs a home building enterprise. This gives Tyrone the opportunity to catch up with an old friend after he was just thinking about him when looking at an old childhood photo. Duane advises him to look ahead and make the things matter most his priority.

Tandy decides to apply to be an intern at Roxxon Gulf, using a fake name and backstory, in the hopes of getting access to the higher positioned employees of the company. She aces her interviews and is accepted for the position.

Tyrone offers Evita his letterman jacket to wear for the game and reaffirms his interest in a romantic relationship with her. The big game is underway and Tyrone is working hard in the game, while Tandy is at a Roxxon party using her powers to see the hopes of different Roxxon employees.

O'Reilly visits a prisoner in custody and forces him to reveal the contact of someone that supplies cocaine.

Tyrone accidentally teleports the basketball from the game to the party Tandy is at and during halftime he accidentally teleports himself there too. Tandy has been discovering that numerous Roxxon employees hope to overthrow their CEO. Tandy is shocked to see Tyrone at the party and he claims that her using her powers has effected him. Because they are connected, all this extra hope-searching she's been doing has been causing his powers to go haywire during the basketball tournament. With Tyrone's help, Tandy is able to determine that the CEO of Rozon Gulf is Peter Scarborough. Peter had been the one to defame her father's name. When Tyrone struggles to figure out how to get back to the game, she tells him he needs to take a risk and she pushes him over the balcony. He falls into a fountain of water and emerges back at the game in time for the second half to start up.

Tandy meets a woman named Mina Hess at the party whose importance is revealed later...

O'Reilly gets a stash of cocaine from a local dealer who asks her if loose morals is what all cops have in common.

As Tyrone continues to play in the tournament, his abilities allow him to see the fears of the opposing team and how significant this game is for them. As a result, he deliberately (but barely) misses the final shot which causes the opposing team to win instead. He leaves feeling good about the kind deed he has done.

Tandy visits Scarborough at his home, claiming to have a flat tire and wanting to use his phone to call for help but instead he gets out his tools to teach her how to change the tire. During the encounter, she secretly manifests the light dagger and considers killing him with it but instead uses her powers to see into his head, learning that he is motivated by greed and doesn't care who he hurts in the pursuit of profit.

O'Reilly is 'caught' at the station by Connors huffing cocaine, but he is sympathetic to her feigned plight and even sniffs a line from her. The implication with this encounter is that she is attempting to bait him into revealing the supplier he is working with.

Tyrone returns home and finds Evita waiting for him in his room, saying she knows he threw the game to help the other team and admires him for being a good person. They spend the night together and she chooses to sneak out the following morning to spare him the hassle of explaining her presence to his parents. Tyrone then accidentally teleports to Duane's work site and spies Duane arguing with Connors. They've been working together and Duane even knows the truth about Billy's death.

Tandy discovers a diagram with her father's name on it along with "Ivan Hess" who was the father of Mina Hess, the woman she met at the party.

Tyrone decides to finish making the cloak, which Otis approves as a method for helping him to focus and be productive instead of self-destructive.

Tandy is skeptical about her mother's relationship with Greg, as Greg is actually married. But upon questioning him further, she is able to see that he does care for her and Tandy and resolves to help him research Roxxon for the case. However, Melissa has decided to break up with Greg, prompting Tandy to go check up on him. However, when she gets near his office she witnesses him being killed by someone sent to do so and then burn his office down. Melissa then tries to call Greg, unaware of what has happened to him. Tandy attempts to kill herself by drowning by tying herself with rope and chains before dropping off the pier. But she ends up manifesting her powers and using the light dagger to free herself and rise back to the surface of the water.

Tyrone returns to the police station more determined to pursue his path for finding justice for his brother by returning to the police station and asking to see officer O'Reilly.

The fight continues until M.K. is able to beat Sunny into near unconsciousness and considers snapping his neck until Pilgrim uses his powers to deactivate M.K.'s gift and welcomes Sunny, saying it's been a long time.

Pilgrim tells Sunny that his real name is Sanzo and that his older sister had helped Pilgrim survive the attack when they were young but he doesn't know what happened to her.

Sunny helps Pilgrim to open the Meridian Chamber, as Sunny is the key while Pilgrim is the focus. Together, they are able to use the door and its powers so Pilgrim is able to absorb Henry's gift for himself. Henry is saved, while Pilgrim now has a dangerous power boost.

Marvel's Cloak & Dagger S01E03 "Stained Glass" Recap


Tyrone checks on Tandy after her car crash and assures her that the gun in his hand isn't meant for her. Despite her injuries, she gets back into the car and carries on driving out of town.

Detective O'Reilly visits Rick in the ICU to ask about his attack. She notes the scratches on his face that look like defensive wounds and informs him that the paramedics said that his pants were unbuckles when he was brought in. She is able to deduce that he was trying to rape Tandy when he was stabbed.

Tandy's car breaks down so she abandons it and returns home to Melissa and Greg's, heading to the bathroom to wipe the blood off her head injury. Melissa is alarmed to see that her daughter was bleeding but their conversation is interrupted by O'Reilly knocking on the door, asking to see Tandy. Melissa lies, saying that Tandy isn't there. Greg says that O'Reilly can't come in without a warrant. Tandy overhears O'Reilly say that Tandy isn't under arrest and likely a victim in an assault, leaving her card behind to be contacted if they want. When Melissa returns to the bathroom she discovers that Tandy has snuck out through the window. Tandy gets on a bus that night and falls asleep, only to 'wake' in a sort of spirit vision.

Tyrone meets his classmate/love-interest Evita who overhears him pondering if he is cursed. She brings him to her part-time job as a tour guide of New Orleans in order to introduce him to voodoo priestess Auntie Clarisse who can offer him spiritual guidance. After reading some cards on him, she determines he needs a bath and gives him a list of spices and charms to use with his bath. He also enters a spirit vision.

Both Tandy and Tyrone have visions of the other. In Tandy's vision she sees a young Tyrone playing basketball with his brother Billy. Billy rejects his friends offering to go steal a car radio, opting to stay and play with Tyrone instead. The vision shifts to the woods where Tyrone at his present age picks up a gun from the table and shoots Connors to avenge his brother. But then his parents collapse and police officers swarm him. The vision replays with Tyrone trying to kill Connors through different means but the end is always the same. Tandy pleads with Tyrone to try something else and then her light dagger emerges from her hand which she places on the table. Tyrone goes to pick it up and it transforms into a pair of handcuffs. He brings them to Connors who immediately flees.

Tyrone has a vision of a young Tandy doing ballet on the rooftop of a building. He shields her from a puddle of water when a light's electric current begins to run haywire. The vision then changes to Tandy at her current age in the woods watching in horror as a room depicts manifestations of her greatest fears and difficulties in life. Each time, Tandy tries to run away until Tyrone manifests his smoke powers to keep her in place and try something else instead of always running form her problems. She manifests a light dagger and this time the vision changes. Tyrone is alone in the woods and sees a large door which he attempts to open and get inside.

Tandy finds Tyrone as a child locked in a room crying over the loss of his brother, while Tyrone finds a child version of Tandy giving the different men in her life (both good and bad) pills that cause them to drop dead. Both Tandy and Tyrone begin to manifest their powers once more and try to reach out for each before waking with clear consciences and an understanding that they need each other for the journeys they find themselves on.

Connors meets with O'Reilly and informs her that her case on Rick's attack is being closed, claiming that he found Rick's license on a dead drug-dealer and that they were the attacker. She is frustrated by this development since it doesn't match the evidence. O'Reilly then gets a call from Tandy who agrees to meet with her privately to share her story about what happened at the attack. O'Reilly apologises to her for not being able to do more for her and Tandy leaves, despondent.

Tyrone finally initiates a romantic relationship with Evita before leaving to confront Tandy at the abandoned church she has been staying at, wanting to better understand and explore this connection they have.

He leaves baby Henry with Bajie to be looked after and during this time, Bajie seemingly begins to rekindle his relationship with Lydia.

Wren and her followers are searching for an important seal when Lydia emerges and manages to negotiate an armistice with the turncoats.

Sunny learns from Captain Udo further details about the massacre that he survived, and a stunning revelation that he had a sister who protected him as a child.

Lydia flees to Moon and Tilda with the intention that they'll work together to rescue The Widow and Chau, who manage to break out on their own and begin fighting off Wren's fighters.
