When are Tyrone and Tandy teaming up on Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger? We know that this is a question many may have following the two-hour premiere. While both of their stories were captivating in their own right, we also saw very little of the two characters actually together. That was of course by design, but given the nature of this show it’s also pretty clear that there’s going to be a demand to have to two in the same orbit eventually.
Rest assured: There is a plan in place to bring the two together in a more permanent way soon as Cloak & Dagger. Not only that, but you won’t have to wait too much longer. Here is what show executive producer Joe Pokaski had to say on the subject to TV Guide:
I think the important thing for us was to make sure we understood them individually…It was important in [the second hour] to really have one more episode where we really understand their problems as individuals, but also lay out the fact that these two are destined to be together. The last moment in Episode 2 is very much saying that these two can’t avoid each other. So, without giving away too much, in Episode 3 they very intimately understand each other’s problems. And then in Episode 4, we have one of the longest conversations in the history of television interlaced with some really crazy action stuff that helps them lay out what they’re gonna do about their problems. So I think the first four is our first act that really bring Tyrone and Tandy together, hopefully in a very conclusive way.
The idea here is that by the time you see the two together, you know more about who they are, what they want, and the things that they care about individually. It’s an effective slow-burn that should make their partnership together, at least in theory. Much of it will depend on the way in which their story is spelled out as the season goes along, but so far we’re rather impressed by the show’s patience and commitment to some of these characters. That is far from an easy thing to pull off.
