The season begins with Luke Cage (Mike Colter) doing what he does best, that is cleaning up the streets of Harlem. As far as the bad side of Harlem, Shades (Theo Rossi) has returned for this season. He continues to hide in the shadows, even his boss, and lover Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard) doesn't know of his true intentions.
Misty Knight (Simone Missick) continues to confront her demons. The loss of her right arm has changed her dynamic, but thanks to Danny and Colleen she has a new purpose in life. Her bionic arm, Luke Cage, fighting the good fight. Until a new villain has arrived in Harlem. His name or at least what he is called. The Bushmaster (Mustafa Shakir) has something new to offer Harlem, a new brand of offering and it comes in blood. Bushmaster wants revenge for what Mariah's family has done to his family long ago. A past filled with blood, seeking revenge for the past.
The barbershop is back, Luke's hangout or at least till Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) the love interest, and superhero medic as made herself a huge piece of the Luke Cage puzzle.
Without going into deep spoilers, this season has a lot to offer. From great fight scenes to deep-rooted plot lines that make up the world of Luke Cage. The struggle is real but as you can see the life of a hero has it's up and down. Luke Cage this season his some really good twists, something worth watching.
The music as well as the set backgrounds, Harlem, all the unique make-ups that make Luke's story is here in season 2. Introducing new characters, friends, love interests, and a whole lot of ass-kicking by our hero. I give this latest season huge props because it manages to continue the Luke Cage story without destroying the diverse connections from the first season.
