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!

Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, this funny, witty, daring and clever group must navigate the upper ten thousand’s marriage mart in search of romance, adventure and love.

QUOTE FROM CREATOR CHRIS VAN DUSEN:

“We could not have found a more gifted group of actors to bring Bridgerton to life.  When creating this series, the goal was to turn a very traditional genre on its head and make something fresh, smart, sexy and fun. That’s exactly what this cast embodies and I’m ridiculously excited to see them inhabit these characters and captivate viewers in their own incredibly brilliant ways.”

CAST:

 Phoebe Dynevor bridgerton

PHOEBE DYNEVOR (Younger, Dickensian) will play “DAPHNE BRIDGERTON.”

The picture-perfect young debutante has been waiting her entire life to make her grand debut on the marriage mart.  Poised to be the season of 1813’s forthcoming Incomparable, Daphne’s set to take the town by storm – but not everything goes exactly as planned for this diamond of the first water, especially after she meets a certain Duke.

Rege-Jean Page bridgerton

REGÉ-JEAN PAGE (For The People, Roots) will play “SIMON BASSET.”

Having newly returned to London, the Duke of Hastings finds himself the primary topic of conversation amongst marriage-minded misses and ambitious mamas alike.  Yet, for reasons of his own, our devastating Duke has zero interest in his title, society, or taking a wife.

Golda Rosheuvel bridgerton

GOLDA ROSHEUVEL (Silent Witness, Lady MacBeth) will play “QUEEN CHARLOTTE.”

The veritable tastemaker of London society, Queen Charlotte finds herself living for the sordid gossip that Lady Whistledown prints, though she’d swear she’s above such mundane musings.  It’s only when the ton’s newest gossip writer takes aim at the palace that Queen Charlotte knows she must do something about it.
