Black Lightning (S02E10) “The Book of Rebellion: Chapter Three: Angelitos Negros”

Alright guys and gals, we had a great episode brought to us tonight and it was a good one! But now we have to wonder about a lot of things that happened in this episode which we will get to in a little bit. I’m sure some may even have questions about what happened in those last moments too but we will get to it, but for now lets get to this review!

So in this episode we saw Khalil (Jordan Calloway) and Jennifer (China McClain) still on the run from the evil Cutter (Kearran Giovanni) and chose to run to a place where he likes to hide away from Tobias (Marvin Jones III). It’s a place he goes when he needs to be alone, a train, of all places it’s a train that I guess must be out of commission or something like that. Because of the Peirce family looking for Jennifer, Khalil finally came to his senses and chose to help Jennifer to go home. Jennifer agreed but just as we all could see things didn’t go as planned.

When Jennifer returned home, Khalil revealed to Jefferson (Cress Williams) that he knows that Jefferson is Black Lightning. Which you had to see that coming because it is easy to figure out especially with Jennifer showing off her electric abilities to Khalil like it was no problem. Jefferson had only one deal for Khalil and Khalil agrees to turn himself in to the police. Jefferson calls Henderson (Damon Gupton) to get him to cut a deal by having Khalil meet with his mother and then get turned in for protective custody to testify against Tobias.

Tobias being really crossed with Cutter, gives her one last chance to bring in Khalil, dead or alive and she tells Tobias that she will not fail this time around. Yet we all thought maybe she would’ve just to see what Tobias would’ve done to her but, then we see that she doesn’t fail. She finally gets Khalil which is what Jennifer had feared, you can really feel for Jennifer. Just when she thought everything was going well for her things go bad. What Tobias does next is horrific but not surprising; Tobias rips the implant straight out of Khalil which you have to admit, that had to hurt. To have something that was in you just be ripped out so easily and then have it be alive trying to find its way back to you. Totally weird and abnormal, I mean that implant was alive, it was a living thing that was keeping Khalil walking and that is just freaky.

But here’s a question for everyone, why would Tobias take out the implant and then leave it in the road with him by it trying to crawl to it before he becomes road kill? I mean I understand to leave Khalil out in the road in hopes someone kills him by running him over, which didn’t happen thank god. But is Khalil going to now be paralyzed again? Will Khalil die because of the implant being ripped out? Will Jennifer forgive herself for going along with Khalil’s plan? What will happen now?

Even though Khalil was a villain and then turned back to good guy by wanting to fight for love in a way, it makes you wonder what will happen to Khalil now that he may stay paralyzed this time around. And I liked at the end of the episode where Reverend Holt (Clifton Powell) asks Khalil if he understands now the power of the devil, the power of Tobias. And as Khalil laid in the street with a hole in his back weeps yes to the Reverend. But seriously what will happen now? Only way to find out is by watching next week!
