"You think you're gonna break me? Bring it on."
"Like I said, this is not an interrogation. I'm not here to break you. You've already done that yourself. The question is, how broken are you?"
Misty Knight and Gabe Krasner[src]

DWYCK is the ninth episode of the first season of the Netflix exclusive television series Luke Cage.


With Luke wounded and on the run, Misty faces a soul-searching interrogation. Mariah's rise to power takes a dark turn.


A police psychologist is tasked to examine Misty Knight. Cage is detected by two policemen, whom he beats up before escaping. Diamondback blames Shades for Cottonmouth' death. Mariah Dillard meets Domingo Colon and convinces him to arrange a meeting with all the local crime bosses. Cage reunites with Claire Temple, who convinces him to let her take him to Noah Burstein for treatment. The inspector releases Knight and tasks her to find Cage, who arrives at Burstein's with Claire. They give him the drive containing the data he needs. Stryker interrupts Dillard's meeting with the crime bosses, killing all of them except Colon. She tells Stryker that the video of Cage attacking the policemen has made him an enemy of the city; and Stryker can now sell the Judas Bullets to NYPD. Burstein dips Cage inside acid, hoping that it will soften his skin, giving the former the chance to remove the shrapnel. However, the pain of the procedure causes Cage to go into cardiac arrest.
