So tonight’s episode was dedicated to the late Amanda Davis, you might’ve seen her on quite a lot of episodes of this season as the newscaster on the series’s television series. She passed away during the last days of 2017. Even though when they filmed all the episodes she was still alive, for some reason they chose to dedicate this episode only to her when the whole season should be dedicated to her, not just one episode.
So this episode we had a fall out between Gambi (James Remar) and Jefferson/Black Lightning (Cress Williams) because of Gambi keeping things from Jefferson to save his soul from ever having to murder someone in cold blood. But Jefferson doesn’t see it that way, he still sees a man who became his guardian after his father died and tried to keep him being that little kid even when he grew up. But I don’t even see it that way, I see a man whose been a father figure to Jefferson in a time when he needed him the most protecting him, guiding him to become the hero that he is always meant to be.
Now, that Anissa (Nafessa Williams) knows that her father is Black Lightning she wants to become a sidekick to start helping her dad kick some ass. After all her father is Black Lightning and you can’t go anywhere without the Thunder. But sadly Jefferson doesn’t want to have her daughter become a superhero like her father, nor does Anissa’s mother. But sometimes it doesn’t matter what your parents want, especially if your an adult, adults make their own choices.
And with everything that happened with these episodes between Henderson (Damon Gupton) and Black Lightning, remind you a lot of the relationship between Batman and Gordon, but I think it’s going to fade after this episode. Especially with that murder of Lady Eve (Jill Scott) but it wasn’t Black Lightning’s fault it was Tobias (Marvin ‘Krondon’ Jones III) men who killed her. But only we the viewers know that!
I just want to know if Jennifer (China McClain) will end up surfacing with powers, I mean it would be pretty awesome if Jefferson’s second daughter ends up surfacing with something like superspeed with a twist of super strength or something like that. I mean we all know that she has the strength to break people’s writsts. And from what it sounds like, Anissa will be getting a much cooler and neater suit than what Jefferson has which will make Jefferson jealous I bet.
This episode we also lost two members of Tobias’s crew, we lost Tobias’s sister Kiesha (Kyanna Simpson) who died from a gun shot which sucks to know that his own sister died by one of his mens hands. And then we also lost Joey Toledo (Eric Mendenhall) because he just had to go especially with him being so messy now in these days. And we also got a character back from the dead which all I can say is what the hell, does this mean that Lala (William Catlett) is going to be kinda possessed by an evil spirit or something cause that is just freaky how he got that tattoo after that spirit went into his chest. Welcome back to the land of the living Lala!
