Its been a while, but I just finished Luke Cage Season 2 .
Bushmaster - Acting/action/backstory. Mustafa Shakir nailed it. Excellent!
Mariah’s descent into thug lyfe - Alfre Woodard did an awesome job.
Music - Luke has the best music of all the MCU Netflix shows.
Action - The fights were 20x better and visceral than Season 1
Danny in ep 10 was 10 x better than his own series. His and Lukes camaraderie felt a lot more natural.
This season was more consistently good compared to last one.
Lukes new status at the end seems an interesting way to take the character. While I dont want him outright being a villain, I like that its gets him more to the gray, than being a white knight all the time.
A little stretched out. “I’m sorry but our Bushmaster is in another castle” lol
Episode 12’s last 10 minutes should have been added to ep 13. Many of the Netflix MCU shows have denouements mostly for the last episode which is the downward stroke. They need the rising part and the falling part.
Tilda at the end. Her motivation was to be clear of Stokes/Mariah’s influence yet at the end of the season shes upset at not getting the club, imo her motivation seems forced if theyre going to make her into a villain.
Nandi being crooked felt shoehorned in.
I didnt care for Shades and his acting felt meh. I hope he is in a lesser role next season.
I wish Luke’s dad had a role in the final episodes. I know is arc was completed a few eps but I would have liked to have seen his reaction to Lukes new status.
