Cloak and Dagger Season 2 Episode 5 Recap
Cloak & Dagger Season 2 Episode 5 is framed around Tandy telling a story about a farmer who is in desperate need of firewood during a winter storm. While out, the farmer finds a viper who is too cold to bite. The farmer takes the viper home and lays it beside the hearth while he goes out to find some wood. When the farmer returns, the recovered viper strikes the farmer, killing him. According to Tandy, the moral of the story is not what it appears on the surface, that a viper can’t change its nature. The lesson is that the viper represents the worst in us and the farmer the best in us. The one you keep warm is the one who survives.
