Synopsis: Tyrone and Tandy head to the Loa dimension to stop the evil force threatening New Orleans, and they confront the personal issues that have been holding them back; Mayhem and Evita do their best to hold off the dangers in the real dimension. (TVGuide)
How are we already done with the second season of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger? Time flew by entirely too fast, and now we must wait for the next season to see where Tandy and Tyrone’s adventures take us. This season two finale was enjoyable as it wrapped up the narrative of the season well. Plus, the way it closed out also leaves room for so much to happen in the next season.
We last left Tandy and Tyrone on the roof after Andre and everyone else disappeared into thin air. All they’re left with is the faint sound of a trumpet playing somewhere, which can only mean Andre is close by, yet not really. There’s really only one person that can help them track Andre down, and that’s Evita.
Meanwhile, Mayhem/Brigid gets an MRI done by Mia in hopes of figuring out who she really is, besides the combination of two people. Mia is able to see rage brewing in Mayhem’s brain, but she also sees signs of sympathy, but before she can say much else, Mia just vanishes into thin air. Not going to lie, it seemed like they were about to tie in the story to Avengers: Infinity War.
Even though Evita is not in the mood to be around Tyrone, she decides to help Tandy and Tyrone anyway. She uses her magic to create a portal through Ty’s cloak so Tandy and Ty can go to the place Andre is holding everyone captive. It’s a dark, grim place, and if the two of them don’t return before the candle goes out, they’ll be stuck there.
While Tandy and Tyrone go off into the darkness, Evita has to keep the spell going long enough for them to do what they need to. Unfortunately, she’s met with some difficulties when shadow creatures begin to appear to stop her. Luckily, Mayhem shows up and starts taking them down so Evita can continue chanting.
Tandy and Tyrone eventually find Andre and the group of people he took, and are soon thrust into some complicated situations. Tandy is sent away by Andre to face her father, while Tyrone is sent off to face himself. It’s a weird, bizarre scene but it’s what the characters need to fully move on. It’s their despair and what holds them back, and in order to defeat Andre, they must face whatever this is.
Eventually, the two of them defeat their demons and manage to subdue Andre long enough to start waking people up in the audience who are lost in their despair. Not to mention, Tandy and Ty pull off a very badass move as Tandy uses Ty’s darkness to stab Andre with a light sword. When they enter Andre’s mind to see his despair, it becomes clear why he is the way he is.
Evita is able to keep the spell going for long enough to manage Ty and Tandy’s return (phew!), but it’s obvious she wants nothing to do with Tyrone.
As the finale comes to an end, Ty’s name is finally cleared, Lia ends up in jail, and then Tandy and Tyrone pack up to go somewhere. At first, it seems like Tandy is heading out on her own, but Ty shows up in the final moments as they embark on their next mission.
While it’s not clear where they’re headed or where the story is taking them, the season two finale was definitely intriguing. It looks like they may finally be joining their powers to do good in the world, and it will be interesting to see where this story goes!
