Black Lightning delivered a very “ok” episode, with nothing too exorbitant, but also without that feeling that the story follows in a coherent way. Khalil’s death can have good consequences, but in this episode everything was in the gossip … And in the subcontext.
SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the main events of the episode. Continue reading at your own risk.
With Lynn and Anyssa almost caught, we see that Oddell is really investigating the family and it is obvious that the ASA director knows about the Pierce’s powers. He still manages to get Lance to their side, but something still leaves me with the flea behind my ear and I believe it’s Tobias using Markovia’s secret service to have Lance right by his side.
The fact is that when Jennifer went to say goodbye to Khalil at the cemetery, Oddell was watching her, as if he already knew something.
And speaking of Jennifer, her moments with her parents were ok, like her taking on Jefferson and making it clear that she will go after Tobias, and that men like him must face vengeance face-to-face, as they easily circumvent justice. At school she faces the director Lowry, who is accused of racism and in conversation with Jefferson says that only being white is already racist, and comments that they did not live his life, with his drugged and deceased parents and him having to eat dog food on the street, that pressing to go ahead is not being racist, he just wants them to obey the rules.
Grace has had a few moments with Anyssa and worries about her, but realizes that when she is close to her girlfriend she completely loses control. Anyssa almost realized that his girlfriend is a goal, but before he managed to question her, he found out she was gone.
Tobias gradually grows in his plans, Todd helps very well, but everything is still intent and nothing conclusive happens for him. Except for the certainty that he needs Jace by his side, as the cameras are very old and Todd is unable to open them.
Let’s see where Black Lightning will and will have the courage to take necessary actions, especially for Jennifer.
