Watch the 'Cloak & Dagger' Meet-Cute Take a Shocking Turn in New Sneak Peek

In the first sneak peek of Marvel’s new superpowered teenage romance show, Cloak & Dagger, we get to see the charming meet-cute of Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, two youngsters mysteriously connected by their powers to summon light daggers and shadows. Despite some electrifying chemistry, things take a shocking turn for the worse really quickly.

Spoilers follow for the premiere of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.

On Thursday, Marvel released the 3-minute clip from Cloak & Dagger’s two-hour premiere, casually dropping the official premiere date along with it: June 7, 2018 on Freeform.

In the clip, we see Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson meet when she spills her beer on him at a party, which kicks off their superhero love story.

They have a brief exchange that’s charming and endearing before a sudden realization sends them both running through the woods — the reason why is the fun, unexpected part. When their hands inevitably come into contact, it triggers their powers in an explosive way.

Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) share a mysterious connection that has something to do with emerging superpowers.

Despite being about the same age, they come from drastically different backgrounds. In both Marvel Comics and this corner of the MCU, Tandy comes from a life of privilege whereas Tyrone grew up struggling in an environment surrounded by gangs.

In the first trailer released back in April 2017, we saw more of their different lives — and pieces included in the new sneak peek.

They both seem deeply dissatisfied with their lives for different reasons, which probably explains why Tandy steals Tyrone’s wallet — she’s probably something of a bored rich girl acting out. Tandy stealing from him is actually a fun inversion of their meeting in Marvel comics, when Tyrone sees Tandy on the street and contemplates stealing her purse when some other thief grabs it instead. Instead, he helps her get it back and the two become friends, get kidnapped and experimented on, and emerge with their powers.

The origins of their powers and the nature of their connection will be drastically different in the Marvel show, but the simplified explanation is that Tandy can create daggers made of light and Tyrone can control darkness.

How closely the show follows other details from the comics remains to be seen, and we’ve got several months to wait before we learn more.

Cloak & Dagger’s two-hour premiere debuts on Freeform on June 7 at 8 p.m. Eastern.

In case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the trailer from April, which provides a lot more context about where these two characters come from and what we can expect from the show:

Leading up to The Last Jedi, every single Star Wars fan was curious about Rey’s parents. Now that particular secret is more or less out, some have suggested that Episode IX could retcon this or even depict Rey’s drunk parents in a flashback. But, as Kylo Ren said, Rey’s parents are “nobody.” So who cares? Particularly when there’s another very important character with mysterious parentage: Finn.

With the end of Game of Thrones almost upon us (Season 8 premieres on April 14), speculation over the final six episodes is at all time high. Will fans be happy with the ending? Will the wait have been worth it? The cast and crew haven’t revealed much, but a recent interview suggests that not everyone will be happy with the way Game of Thrones Season 8 finishes the series.

It’s been all but confirmed that Avengers: Endgame will feature some sort of time travel, but we still have no idea how exactly that will work. Now, however, a new fan theory may finally explain how the Avengers defeat Thanos and reveal why everyone seems so chill in the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer. In short: It’s all about time loops.

For many Kingdom Hearts fans, the release of Kingdom Hearts III represents the culminating moment for a journey that’s lasted almost two decades, smashing various Disney worlds and Final Fantasy elements together along the way. Plenty of gamers have grown up dreaming about the first main entry since KHII came out in 2005 — perhaps most of all, Haley Joel Osment, who’s voiced series protagonist Sora since the very beginning.

It’s been over a month since Nintendo unleashed Super Smash Bros. Ultimate onto the world, and as more professional players share their early tiers lists, it’s quickly become clear which characters are best and which kind of stink. Now, with three new Smash Bros. Ultimate tier lists from three of the top players around, it’s becoming clear that one character is far and away the top pick in competitive Smash.
