"Your name is all over Harlem today. Not in a good way."
"I'm about to change that."
Eddie Axton and Luke Cage[src]

Just to Get a Rep is the fifth episode of the first season of the Netflix exclusive television series Luke Cage.


Cottonmouth strikes back at Luke by taking his vengeance out on the people of Harlem, while detective Knight and Rafe face an unexpected threat.


Cornell Stokes begins extorting the citizens of Harlem to cover his debts and Luke Cage confronts him to demand he stop. Hernan Alvarez recognizes Cage from Seagate Prison and offers to lend Stokes a prototype weapon stolen from Hammer Industries that could kill Cage on Diamondback's behalf. Realizing this would cost him control of Harlem, Stokes decides to sell the weapons from the botched exchange to Domingo Colon and use the money to buy Diamondback's weapon. Rafael Scarfe is assigned to retrieve the weapons, but steals them for himself. Meanwhile, Misty Knight begins investigating Scarfe at the behest of her superiors and Claire Temple arrives in Harlem to visit her mother, Soledad Temple, in whom she confides about her experiences with enhanced people. During Pop's memorial, Cage delivers a eulogy that humiliates Stokes, leading Knight to warn him that war against Stokes could destroy Harlem.
