Every week Nerdist is proud to bring you the aftershow for Freeform’s Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger, Nerdist After. Join hosts Hector Navarro and Aliza Pearl after a new episode airs each week for answers to your questions, Easter eggs you might have missed, interviews with the show’s cast and crew you won’t find anywhere else, and much, much more.
Nerdist Editor-in-Chief Rachel Heine and Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger showrunner and executive producer Joe Pokaski joined Hector and Aliza again to talk about the fourth episode of the series, “Call/Response,” and how Tandy Bowen (portrayed by Olivia Holt) throws verbal daggers at the adults in her life.
Joe also talks about the “spy boy” tradition of the Mardis Gras parade, featured heavily in the episode as Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) learns about it from his father. The scenes were shot in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans, which continues to make its presence and cultural perspectives vital parts of the television series.
Later, Andrea Roth, who plays Tandy’s mother Melissa, stops by Nerdist After to chat about the character and what the future might hold for Melissa when her world turns even more upside-down.
One Thing to Watch For
Keep a keen eye on the posters and photos on the wall in Greg’s office, hints Joe, and you might get an idea of where the show is heading in the next few episodes.
