Luke Cage 1.6

  • First episode that didn’t feel overly slow. A lot happened. And the while thing was basically a race against time, as Luke and Claire tried to get Scarfe to safety.
  • The scene that set the story in motion was the weakest in the episode. Scarfe deciding to ask Cottonmouth for more money? Which then developed into a fight? One where Cottonmouth shot Scarfe? But didn’t finish the job, and opted to drive away? Pretty much none of that made any sense. Even Scarfe’s choice of Luke Cage is questionable…
  • However, the rest of the episode was strong. The various action scenes, though understated, were cool. And so were the scenes with Mariah Dillard facing the press. Made the world of the show seem rounded and real.
