'Cloak and Dagger' season 2 episode 8 sees Mayhem and Brigid become one and so do Tandy and Tyrone

Spoilers ahead for season 2 episode 8...

In the last episode of 'Cloak and Dagger' season 2, we saw Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) almost disappear into a black mass of smoke, something that Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) did not expect. Especially after coming to realize how important he is in her life because of Andre Deschain (Brooklyn McLinn). She takes Ty to the deserted church where he lives and calls Evita Fusilier (Noëlle Renée Bercy) to check if her aunt who practices Vodun can help them. Sadly, they do not realize that Evita's aunt Chantelle Fusilier (Angela Davis) has passed and try to help Ty without her. Evita draws a veve around Ty to call Papa Legba, the Vodun God to help 'a good man who's suffering'.

Tandy and Brigid O'Reilly then decide to jump into Ty's cloak to bring him back home. The problem is, it is not just Andre and Ty who get their powers from the Darkforce dimension. We see a clown, who owns an action figurine shop inside Tyrone's cloak and this time, the setting is much different. It is not the mall where she found Mayhem, but more of a colorful, psychedelic arcade amid all that loud darkness. While Tandy is off on her own path, Brigid is on a different path altogether. One that might help her deal with her other half, Mayhem, without killing either of them.

Sam D, the man who presides over death, is the owner of the arcade where Tyrone is stuck in a loop. Everyone who visits the dimension has to make a payment and Ty paid Sam D with his worries. All that Tandy is allowed to do is try and convince him to come back home. Ty, however, is tired of losing every fight. He has been stuck in one place, always looking behind, trying not to get caught for a crime that he did not commit. There is so much conflict within him and all he wants to do is fight mindlessly and win. Which is why the arcade setting works so well for Sam D. The longer Tyrone is stuck in the dimension, the more chances of him dying. So Evita, calls on her aunt Chantelle to find a solution. Now that she has passed, Evita must accept the responsibility of being the next Vodun priestess who would marry Papa Legba. As soon as the bride says yes, Tandy and Tyrone, who also understand the importance of each other return home.

While all of this took place, Brigid, who went on her own journey took the memory lane with Mayhem and the two realized what they have been missing. Brigid realized that she needed Mayhem, because, without her, her docile self couldn't do much about the corrupt cops, or the ways things worked around her. The investigation into the missing girls was just treated as another day at a job where the bad man gets bail and repeats it all over again. When one of the detectives at the scene at the motel says, "They don't call it the oldest profession for no reason" she understands that Mayhem's aggression is needed at this point. 

Which is why she makes a deal with her, lets her take control and gets buried underneath. The moment when Mayhem applies nail paint for Brigid is symbolic of the acceptance that Brigid will be a part of Mayhem and so the episode itself became a symbol of two parts becoming one. Be it for Mayhem and Brigid or Cloak and Dagger.
