If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/14/18

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Phoebe’s Choice

Last week, Freeform gave us the first two episodes of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, and I was definitely impressed enough to start a bandwagon for everyone to hop aboard. So get yer traincore on and watch this show! This is another comic book show in the MCU, and the major departure so far has been that they gain their powers by being in the same bay at the same time that a Flash-styled “particle reactor” exploded, making them “metas.” Episode two started with a car accident scene on a wooded forest road somewhere. It was a totally a non-sequitur that will only happen in the last minute of the episode.

The chronological start of the episode was Detective O’Reilly and other cops checking the scene of where Tandy/Dagger stabbed a guy to death last episode. Tandy told her bf/PIC, William, about the stabbing, and they plotted to get her out of town. O’Reilly soon was talking to the other two men who assaulted Tandy before she stabbed the one guy through the chest with one of her “hardlight” daggers.

Later that day, Cloak/Tyrone dozed off, and in his nap accidentally teleported miles away, causing him to be late for basketball practice. So late that the coach made the rest of the team run “suicide sprints” the whole practice till he showed up. To make up for thousands of dollars her mom spent on drugs, stolen from her stash, Tandy & William targeted a wedding to steal from them. Oh yeah. In this show? Dagger is totally a thief. That’s her M.O. They were ripping off the wedding to afford her fake credentials, as she planned to flee New Orleans (where the show is inexplicably set). Meanwhile, O’Reilly was already touring the neighborhood with a sketch artist drawing of what is clearly Tandy.

Tyrone’s teammates beat him up in the locker room for making them run suicides. Afterwards, as penance, he did the sprints on his own. At the same time, Tandy’s hands glowed with power at the wedding, and she had to hide it under the table. Next she had a vision of William proposing to her – that ended in her freaking out and running to the bathroom. But there she met “resting basic face” maiden that had all the cash. She stole it, but they had to steal the “Just Married” car to get away. Tyrone had a strange vision that led him to try to shoot the scarred cop who killed his brother years ago.

Once she had her new ID, Tandy took the car and set out on her own, not wanting to deal with William’s love. Just as Tyrone was about to shoot the corrupt cop, the shadows he was in swallowed him and teleported him to the remote road that Tandy was driving on, and she veered off the road and crashed. Point, looping Counterpoint.

On tonight’s episode, “Stained Glass,” Tandy is on the run as Detective O’Reilly closes in on her, but the detective may not be after her for the reasons Tandy thinks. Tyrone is desperate for answers and turns to Evita and her Auntie Clarisse, a Voodoo priestess, for help.

Find out why O’Reilly is after Tandy tonight on Freeform at 8/7c.

I’ll also be wondering wtf Freeform is.
