She's trying to clear my name inside the precinct and bring me in at the same time. And you saw right through me. You ever see anything like that before? Misty emerge from the back, having followed Luke there and gets into a stand-off with Shades. One of the best to pick up the mic, the one and only Method Man! I should've known you'd turn up. You were part of a hostage situation, Hernan. Power to the people And Luke Cage the cause And the cops got it wrong We don't think Cage involved Look, dog, a hero, never had one Already took Malcolm and Martin This is the last one I beg your pardon Somebody pullin' a fast one Now we got a hero for hire And he a black one And bullet-hole hoodies Is the fashion We in Harlem's Paradise Tell the Captain That I'm about to trade the mic For a Magnum Give up my life For Trayvon to have one Yeah, 'cause this is bulletproof love And you already know What a bulletproof does So you can take it From a bulletproof thug The hood got his back, dog Bulletproof love Blood thicker than mud And who am I to judge If you get a gun in the club? The guy who always wears sunglasses, he was there. Romeo would roll over in his grave, the way you hop-skipping with these cats nowadays.
Take care of Diamondback before he made it bad for everybody. If we send Luke after Diamondback and they kill each other all of our problems are swept away. He swaps hoodies with one of the customers, Method Man, who is more than happy to help him out and have such an impressive souvenir in return. Inspector Ridley interrogates Shades but he won't say anything about Stryker or otherwise, simply demanding a lawyer each time he is asked a question. You know I'm gonna kill 'em all later, right? You can't leave me in here!. Two million dollar bail and someone paid it in cash.
It'll take you far as long as you stay in your place. At least let me take a crack at Shades. As long as the business is business, I'm good with it. You know what they say. Lie to me again, Candace, I walk away from here, and you are on your own.
There's a bit of a standoff between Misty, who has beef with both Mariah and Shades, but before they can really agree Luke looks sorely tempted , Diamondback shows up in his armour. How did you even get out of Harlem's Paradise without being stopped? You trying to tell me that those are bullet holes? If you know every single possible move, you can anticipate your adversary's next move before he does. Candace fears Mariah more than Stokes ever did. I honestly would've liked to see a version of the show where the second half of it had Mariah and Shades as the two main antagonists instead of focusing on the one-note Diamondback, honestly. It's much bigger than that.
I hope I'm right about you. The men attack Shades in an elevator, having been ordered to kill him, but Shades fights back and manages to kill them all and escape. She speaks with Candace, who calls her on a prepare phone and is willing to recant her testimony against Luke, especially after he saved her life at the club when Stryker threw her off the balcony. See what else Turk knows. You're supposed to be in the hospital. It's the only leverage he had on her but is prepared to swear loyalty to her and proposes that they work together.
Chess is a game of anticipation. You know I ain't calling no po-po. I just want my 40 acres And some carats on the wrist But these snakes Is tryin' to gather in the pit Where you get a cottonmouth Pluckin' ashes off the clip Off the rip, now a challenger exists And he bulletproof, shoot What kinda caliber is this? You saw how quickly Mariah sent that lawyer and got me out of there. We'll be doing this for years to come. To see if she would tell me the truth.
Man, the writing was on the wall. You don't recognize me, do you? You got it right here on Sway's Universe. The first of the 48 laws of power. He threw away his chance when he jumped out that damn van. That's no way to speak to a business partner. Make sure Luke is brought in safely. More people begin to wear hoodies with holes as a sign of solidarity with Luke.
He's at a warehouse by the Harlem River. But I ain't his boy. While Marvel has yet to make a Luke Cage soundtrack available — hopefully that'll materialize in the near future — the songs from each episode can still be heard online through several music streaming services. One of the seven deadly sins, my boy which I plan to unleash on dear old Carl. I'll regret that night for the rest of my life. But you've made some dumb ones also.
Once you go black, you never go back. Mariah herself isn't as helpless as Diamondback thought, though. So where is she now? The only people who know what really happened in the club are you and me. And as Luke and Diamondback clash, finally physical equals, Bobby Fish shouts out loud angrily at the two rampaging superhumans that he just fixed the shop up, man, couldn't they have taken things outside? And then we get, like, a full four or five minutes of the dude that Luke Cage saved talking on air and rapping and rapping and on and on about Luke Cage and, yeah, I get that. I just need a minute with him. If you're not of any use to me, then you're not useful to anyone. They're the vintage Air Jordan 5s.
Here, the islands, further south We'd be unstoppable. Well, the hostages have all been consistent that Luke Cage never held them at gunpoint. They've been saying that since Eve bit the apple. My grandmother loved Harlem's Paradise. How was I supposed to know Tone was gonna shoot up the shop? You're on the road in a brand new car and a woman that fine? Then you'll have nothing to blackmail me with. Not being able to fight against a dude with bulletproof skin per se, Shades' physical ability hasn't been shown off a lot beyond kicking a wounded Luke in the prison, but this is awesome. Shades admits he had gone to the club that night to kill Stokes but Mariah beat him to it.
