Marvel’s Cloak And Dagger Season 2 recently teased the introduction of D’Spayre to the MarvelTV universe. Will this lead to more Fear Lords joining the Freeform series?

The show hasn’t received enough credit but Marvel’s Cloak And Dagger is already off to a stellar start in its’ sophomore season. The latest episodes have brought Andre Deschaine to the forefront as a new antagonist but he’s not the only one creating problems for Tandy and Tyrone. A promo for next week’s episode also teases the introduction of yet another villain: D’Spayre.

Warning! Spoilers for the following episodes of Marvel’s Cloak And Dagger follow. Read on at your own discretion.

As we mentioned, the trailer for Season 2 Episode 8 “Two Player” hinted at D’Spayre entering the fray. A sudden collapse of Ty’s shroud in “Vikingtown Sound” left Tyrone in an unstable state, with his abilities spreading outward. Tandy and Brigid now have to once again venture into the Darkforce Dimension. It’s here that the inner-Tyrone and Tandy will meet an emissary working for the demon known as D’Spayre.

The unnamed messenger explains to Tandy and Ty that they have to play a videogame for their freedom, leaving them with no choice but to participate in the contest. The game in question is called ‘Duel Of D’Spayre’.

The following montage of shots in the promo depicts Tyrone and Tandy playing through a virtual reality version of this game. Though, it looks like this supposed game is just a ruse for an even darker scheme concocted by D’Spayre.

Fans familiar with Marvel Comics know that D’Spayre is a very deceitful character. He lies, manipulates, and cheats all for the purpose of feeding on the negative emotions of others. These traits may factor into Cloak And Dagger’s adaptation of the character because the assistant who directs Ty and Tandy towards the Duel Of D’Spayre videogame looks identical to the comic version of D’Spayre. The white makeup matches them up perfectly but it’s the genderswap that has us cued in—namely because that’s the ideal way to mislead fans.

Since D’Spayre is known to bend reality and confuse his victims with hallucinations, there’s a good chance his television counterpart can do the same by altering his appearance. Cloak And Dagger’s production team likely took that factor into account when they pieced together the promo for “Two Player” so as to tease the villain’s arrival.

Whatever the explanation may be, the imminent arrival of D’Spayre is going to create a major problem for Tandy and Tyrone’s team. They’ve been struggling with various factions causing mayhem in the city and it’ll only continue to get worse—that is unless defeating D’Spayre puts an end to the criminal element causing havoc in New Orleans.

It is worth mentioning that the ‘Duel Of D’Spayre’ videogame could just be an Easter Egg for fans of the comics to pick up on. Then again, the presence of people enhanced by the Roxxon explosion makes it feasible for D’Spayre to have risen alongside them.
