Black Lightning it continues to drag, but developing its characters, giving purpose and still creating new dilemmas. Interesting to see Lala and Jefferson’s relationship, but breaking the mood we had interesting moments of Jennifer seeing her uniform with Gambi.
SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the main events of the episode. Continue reading at your own risk.
Resurrected by Lazarus, former partner of Lady Eve, Lala spent the entire episode talking to her own monsters, but put Jefferson against the wall due to the death of her friend Earl. Talking about security and choices, Jefferson holds information, while lala gets more and more nervous, even shooting him.
Lala at the moment just wants his revenge on Tobias, but his monsters, the people he killed, continue to appear and give him headaches, and advice. The biggest problem is that in the end Earl joins his portfolio of murdered people, remembering that Tobias made it clear that his skin would fill with these people.
Now, how did Earl appear there? Earl was confronted by the police about being part of the gang of 100 and he refused, only that Lala was responsible for his death indirectly, only that he did not imagine it. A friend, an innocent, was killed.
Meanwhile Lynn fights with Agent Odell, only the worst happens: he investigates the Pierson family and finds out that Jefferson is Black Lightning, Anissa the Storm and Jennifer is Storm. He still kills the agents who know this secret, keeping it to himself.
Funny moments with Jennifer and Gambi creating the uniform, but it is Anissa’s search for Grace that makes things complicated, only that she doesn’t know that her ex is a metahuman, let alone her origin and everything. I still bet on experiences from Markovia’s people. We will see…
Black Lightning walks towards the last 2 episodes of the season, I hope it walks better than the last, which has been more dragged.
