Luke Cage is a dream come true for any Jessica Jones fan. Or Marvel fan. Or Netflix Originals fan. Wait, that covers pretty much everyone. Yep, sounds about right! Zoë Kravitz and her mom Lisa Bonet got a special shout-out in episode four of the show, and Zoë responded in the sweetest way.

Have they gone? Okay good. Let’s get to the good stuff.
When Luke Cage‘s titular character visits with an old buddy of his who has been in prison for years, he gets to fill him in on all the pop culture news — which is no small task! Luke’s friend is surprised to hear that Lisa Bonet had a daughter while he was locked up. In response to the question about Zoë being “hot,” Luke says, “She’s like The Godfather Part II.”
It didn’t take long for Zoë to catch wind of the reference to her and responded yesterday with an Instagram post. She captioned the post with some sweet hashtags: “#willneverbeasgoodaspt1 #butthankslukecage!”
Clearly Part I is reserved for Lisa Bonet (whose partners have included Lenny Kravitz and Khal Drogo!) but since Part II is nothing to sniff at, Zoë handled the compliment with grace and an adorable hat tip at her mama. Love it.
Do you prefer Part I or Part II? And what do you think of Luke Cage? Let us know @BritandCo!
