The Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Producer SP, Agent Haley and Agent Michelle discuss the Netflix series Luke Cage season 2 episodes “On and On” and “If It Ain’t Rough, It Ain’t Right.” The Agents debrief you on how Luke Cage wasn’t the lead in these two episodes but how he did experience a character rebirth of sorts, how Misty’s mojo is back and the wonderful cinematography as she has insight into the crime scene, how Captain Ridenhour was compromised and demonstrated really bad police work, Shade’s love-blinded decisions, how spectacularly Alfre Woodard played Mariah Stokes, what are some Best Practices for acting around gangsters with letter openers, Bushmaster’s motivations and the building of a great villain, what mistake Ben Donovan made, discuss with Piranha rolled too easily, Bushmaster’s “head” count, speculation on who is Tilda’s father, Luke Cade and Reverand Lucas’ emotional journey, and why the Agents refuse to rip their chairs apart. Stay tuned after the credits for almost 10 minutes of Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. bonus audio.
