Netflix/Marvel’s Luke Cage is back an we could not be happier. Everyone’s favorite Harlem hero in a hoodie with bulletproof skin and super strength, is back walking the streets. This time around he’s going to need more than super powers to take down the villains that threaten his home turf. In fact it is the villains showcased in the second season of the series that really add the depth and power to the series. Although most of them are larger than life, two of them, Shades (Theo Rossi) and Comanche (Thomas Q. Jones) have actually been intimate with each other.

Shades Luke Cage

Shades, as you recall, is a hired gun who worked for Cottonmouth in the first season, but by the season’s end he aligned himself with Black Mariah (Alfre Woodard), becoming her lieutenant and boy toy. In a surprising twist of events in Season 2, Shades brings on his childhood best friend, Comanche, as his right hand man. As their bond is explored we learn not only did they have each other’s backs, but were intimate while in prison.

Thomas Q. Jones as Comanche

Until episode six, “The Basement,” where it is revealed that they were lovers in prison as well as being childhood friends. While Shades has processed their relationship jail as one of comfort in a dark place, Comanche makes it clear that who was in prison wasn’t a cover it’s who he is.

Comanche: We are more than that. Or did you forget that shit, too?

Shades: Inside was inside. Lack of human interaction. Lack of trust. We did what we had to do to keep from going crazy.

Comanche: We didn’t have to do shit. I wanted to. You did, too.

Shades: Life inside is inside. Prison has its own set of rules that no one in the outside world would ever understand. We’re out now. It’s different. I’m different, we’re different.

Comanche: I ain’t different. Inside, outside; I am who I am, B.

Shades: What do you want me to say?

Comanche: Come on, man. Cat’s out here getting their heads cut off. Maybe we survive, maybe we don’t. I’m just saying how I feel.

Shades: I would die for you, Che. That’ll never change. But it is what it is.

For Shades it seems his gay tryst with Comanche was situational for their time in prison. It is not the first time we have heard of guys beign “prison gay.” Theo Rossi has come forward to state that Comanche is in fact the true love of Shades’ life in an interview with SyFy.com:

Caught in the middle of the action is Shades’ long-time friend, partner, and “the love of his life,” Darius “Comanche” Jones (Thomas Q. Jones). Rossi says Comanche was Shades’ heart, his true soulmate, so when Shades finds it necessary to kill Comanche to protect Mariah’s (and his own) interests in Episode 7, “On and On,” he ends up inflicting permanent damage to himself.

Either way this is very progressive. Marvel continues to push the envelope with its characters and Luke Cage. What do you guys think of Shades and Comanche’s relationship? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

(P) Saturday, March 21 (9 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET/PT) Episode: All Buttoned Up

We have to say we are really rooting for all of these couples. We recently had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Dwayne and Theresa Bowe, and we are convinced Spirit is working some magic over there. This series is definitely off to a fiery start. From the looks of it Sundy and Breyon have a lot to sort through. Sundy’s stance is a bit tough, but we have to admit the infidelity on Breyon’s part seems intolerable. Multiple girlfriends?  Theresa and Spinderella seem to be bonding and relate well to each other. They definitely seem to have it more “together” than some of the other ladies involved in the show.

You all just be sure to check out “Love Goals” this Saturday night only on OWN, at 9/8 PM EST, check your local listing for showtimes.

Melissa L. Williams as “Ruth”

“Tyler Perry’s Ruthless” is executive produced, written, and directed by Tyler Perry. Michelle Sneed will also serve as Executive Producer of the series for Tyler Perry Studios.

We have to say Tyler Perry is really making moves in 2020 with all of his new series and films being released. He is the epitome of “Never Not Working,” as we like to say on our various social media accounts. “Ruthless” definitely deserves a chance! We definitely want to learn more about this cult Ruth is a part and how, or if, she and her daughter can be liberated from it. Furthermore, how will this affect the story lines of “The Oval” at large?

Netflix’s new series THE BABY-SITTERS CLUB is based on the best-selling book series, that follows the friendship and adventures of Kristy Thomas (Sophie Grace), Mary-Anne Spier (Malia Baker), Claudia Kishi (Momona Tamada), Stacey McGill (Shay Rudolph), and Dawn Schafer (Xochitl Gomez) as the middle-schoolers start their babysitting business in the town of Stoneybrook, Connecticut.

The Baby-Sitters Club

Ann M. Martin, the beloved series author and producer on the new series, was the first to conceive the idea of these inspiring young girls with different backgrounds, personalities and opinions that were brought together by a business venture they conceived and bonded through the friendships they forged. The adaptation of the contemporary dramedy that continues to champion friendship, female empowerment and entrepreneurship was led by Rachel Shukert (Glow) as showrunner and Lucia Aniello (Broad City) as executive producer and director.

We are really excited about the release of “The Babysitter’s Club!” Growing up it was one of our favorite books to read in grade school. Netflix has been running low on family friendly shows as of late with the surprising cancellation of popular series like Fuller House and One Day At A Time. This reboot, hopefully, will be as heartwarming as the book and the series from 1990; but updated for a new generation!
