Luke Cage - Who's Gonna Take the Weight

Spurred on by the murder of Pop (Frankie Faison), begins targeting the stash houses of Cottonmouth (Mahershala Ali) and forces the gangster to pull back all his ill-gotten gains into a single location which, while heavily fortified, can't keep out a man with unbreakable skin and super-strength. The episode offers another hallway sequence, made famous in the First Season of Daredevil and less and less impressive with each rip-off, as Luke breaks through every level of protection the fortress has in order to allow the police to confiscate nearly all of Cottonmouth's wealth. This of course means reprisal from his enemy who escalate the situation and allow for the part of the origins of Luke Cage to be revealed in the next episode.
