Okay guys and gals we had another great episode, and it was a good one! We had quite a bit happen in the episode that we will talk about and some moments that I might just talk about because the certain scenes were just awesome. So lets get to this review!
So in this episode we saw Jennifer (China McClain) have to deal with grieving over the first love of her life having passed away and what happens afterwards. Truth be told whenever a love one dies its never easy for anyone. It’s bad enough that Jennifer blames herself for what happened to Khalil (Jordan Calloway) but she shouldn’t decide to go after Tobias (Marvin Jones III) it’s not the right thing to do especially since she wants to kill the guy. I know that Tobias does deserve to die but in a way Tobias is the one in fault to now creating Jefferson’s Black Lightning (Cress Williams) and now Jennifer’s Lightning, but still even though the guy deserves to die it shouldn’t be by the hands of a superhero otherwise you are just seen as a vigilante or anti-hero.
I mean they have already made comic stories about Black Lightning and Anissa/Thunder (Nafessa Williams) which is pretty awesome to see that someone is making comic stories while Jefferson and Anissa are doing the good work of keeping their city safe or at least trying to. I never thought they would actually make comic stories on Black Lightning its like breaking walls within the show by doing that or is it? Now all we need is for Anissa to tell a certain someone that she is Thunder, I mean it would be awesome and shocking to Grace (Chantal Thuy) but I’m sure she would find it awesome eventually by seeing that shes dating a superhero, right?
Speaking of which, how lovely was it to see Grace and Anissa together and arranging a date during the day by getting lunch together and having just an absolutely lovely time out together. I mean it’s not every day that you get to see two people who have secrets have lovely times together and actually enjoy each others time with each other. It’s amazing and seeing those two share the screen is everything that the fans of the characters want; hell it’s what I want, I would love for them to explore even more of Grace’s story in either this season or the next season I think it would be interesting to see. Another thing that would be awesome to see is Grace and Anissa coming clean with each other about their powers. I mean thats the next step that needs to be taken in my opinion.
Now I don’t know about a lot of you, but I feel like Agent Odell (Bill Duke) is starting to become very creepy. Like stalker creepy, because the way how he’s just following Lynn (Christine Adams) and the whole Peirce family around, I mean if he knows something is up with the Peirce family then he should just come clean about knowing the Peirce family secret. But maybe thats what Odell is going to do is uncover the Peirce family secret, if that happens then they are all gonna be under the radar of the government.
On another note, how awesome where all those bad ass Anissa scenes in this episode! I mean Anissa was seriously kicking some serious ass in this episode and it was all for good causes but still all those fight scenes in this episode were amazing! I really loved the choreography and the cinematography of those scenes!
