Letting go of the past isn’t easy on Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.  Tandy (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone (Aubrey Joseph) have been chasing ghosts from the beginning. “Ghost Stories” can lead to more questions, or worse, heartache. At this point, Tandy and Tyrone need to be prepared for anything.

Tyrone asks if he will be a good as Billy and Billy says he will be better. Tandy gets distracted by cartoons while practicing her ballet moves. She starts to turn the TV off, but Nathan tells her to leave it on. He says life is full of distractions and she needs to learn to overcome them. Billy and Nathan always encouraged the kids to be their best. Later that night, they were both killed.

Tandy wakes up next to Tyrone on the beach. She makes her way to the city with one shoe one. She sees a woman standing in front of her with a phone hanging out of her purse. Tandy takes the phone and calls home, but there’s no answer. She walks home and the front door is locked. Tandy uses the spare key under the doormat to get in. Once inside, she finds her mom unconscious. Tandy calls 911. Later that night, Tandy lays on the couch as Melissa (Andrea Roth) tells her never to rely on anyone.

Adina tells Otis that she no longer feels safe.

In the present day, Tandy visits Ivan Hess (Tim Kang) in the hospital. She passes Peter Scarborough (Wayne Pérein the hall. Both turn to face each other, but neither says anything. Scarborough is there to make sure Ivan isn’t an liability. Ivan says he doesn’t remember anything about the night of the rig explosion.

It warned the company about the design of the rig. He tells her where to find it. Ivan says none of this can come back to him. He has a lot to lose and Roxxon is dangerous.
