We get to see more of how Jennifer deals with the death of Khalil as his family prepares for his funeral. She wants revenge against Tobias. As her next arc begins we have to wonder if Gambi will make her a costume.  Through it all though, she keeps her cool. She has gone so much this season. She makes the funeral and principal Lowery is as annoying as always.

Anissa learns that with great power comes great responsibility. She helps Monique but risks her life to do it. Will Grace tell Anissa about her affliction? Running away won’t help and Anissa was ready to introduce to the family.

Lynn and Jefferson have fight. Metahuman life is not easy on relationships, but hopefully they will work it out.



This episode is all about Jennifer. At the start of the season her arc was the least interesting and seemed to drag. Not now. She has grown up a lot and in a superhero show that deals in real humanity; character development is more valuable than gold. In the grand scheme of the story of Black Lightning  it looks like Khalil has not died in vain. That’s important. If Jennifer gets that costume she will have earned it.



It’s getting a little tired and annoying that Grace and Anissa can’t find peace. They deserve a break. At this point who doesn’t want grace to meet Jefferson and Lynn?

Can we please get rid of principle Lowry? he’s a cliché. This show is too good to retread this nonsense. Buh Bye.



This was an episode of quiet consequences. Rich in character development and possible foreshadowing to what’s to come in the rest of the season. Jennifer you’re journey isn’t easy right now, but you’ll come out of it a better character. This show keeps getting better.
