If you’re anything like us here at the ol’ Comic Book Club website, you probably want to marry Marvel and Freeform’s new TV show Cloak & Dagger. But what about the characters themselves… Are Cloak and Dagger married?
Great question, Internet person. Because it’s impossible for men and women to just be friends (thank you, hit 1989 rom-com When Harry Met Sally) we know that Tandy (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone (Aubrey Joseph) must be in some sort of a relationship. But have they made it official?
Read on, for the answer(s)!
Are Cloak and Dagger married on the TV show?
No man, they’re barely even talking to each other. The show has only broadcast three episodes so far (the fourth airs tonight at 8/7c), but other than a few “chance” meetings Tandy and Ty don’t have a speaking relationship, let alone one registered with the courts of Louisiana.
Also worth noting (I guess), the age of consent in New Orleans (and the whole state) is 16 with parental consent, 18 without. In real life, Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph are both 20; though on TV, they play “teenagers,” no particular age specified. It’s a fair assumption given their characters are about the same age, and Ty is still in school, that they’re still in their teens.
So unless their parents are like “yeah, go get hitched you crazy kids,” they’re not getting married on the show. They also probably need to like each other first. And be able to touch. Just a thought.
Are Cloak and Dagger married in the comics?
Actually? No. And in fact, their complicated relationship has never been clearly defined. Initially, before the experiments that gave them their powers, they were friends. Then they became codependent, when Cloak’s hunger turned out to be only sated through Dagger’s light powers.
But over the years, they’ve split up their partnership, and even struck up relationships with other people. They always come back to each other, and are extremely close… But have, as far as anyone can tell, never consummated their relationship.
Basically, they’re the people in your group of friends that everyone thinks is hooking up, but actually aren’t. If it’ll pan out that way on TV, too? Only time will tell.
