Luke Cage Episode 5 Review Podcast “Just to Get a Rep” Spoiler filled Synopsis

Written by Jason Horwitch

Directed by Marc Jobst

Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) arrives in Harlem to visit her mother, Soledad Temple (Sonia Braga). Confiding in her mother about saving a bullet-proof man in Hell’s Kitchen she explains her growing need to help the heroes that walk the streets of New York; just as she glimpses on the TV the incredible sight of Luke Cage (Mike Colter) emerging from a collapsed building unscathed! However, not everyone is pleased to see Luke Cage alive and a shocked Cornell Stokes aka Cottonmouth (Mahershala Ali) hits back at Luke extorting the citizens of Harlem to cover his debts and to recover the money stolen by Cage.

As the heat rises in Harlem Shades (Theo Rossi) recognizes Cage from Seagate Prison and warns stokes of the damage to his reputation offering Stokes ways and means to deal with Cage. But as the inevitable arrives and Stokes becomes more obsessed with Luke Cage they clash…first on the streets of Harlem, then in Cottonmouth’s club – Harlem’s Paradise – and finally during Pop’s memorial, where Cage delivers an eulogy that humiliates Stokes in front of the people of Harlem. War has been declared!

    I haven’t seen further than episode 5, so by the next episode I am probably already proven wrong, but:
    If you have a VERY expensive bullet, let’s call it Judas, wouldn’t you make sure, that you got a Bullseye with it?
