Black Lightning(S03E03) “The Book of Occupation: Chapter Three”

Alright guys and gals we had another great episode brought to us tonight and it was really good! We have a lot to talk about we will get to as much as we can but let’s get to this review!

So in this episode we got more of an idea how the people of Freeland are feeling about the “extra” protection for the citizens of the city. And they are all not very happy about the extra help. In fact we saw in this episode that the people believe that Chief Henderson (Damon Gupton) is not doing everything in his power to help the people of Freeland. The people believe he is doing worse than the last Chief and the people are not pleased with anything. I feel like the people are not going to let this go, that it might become a protest to get Henderson out as Chief but I hope not. After all Henderson is doing everything he can do to cooperate with the ASA but it is putting a strain on him.

And we got to see an upgrade suit for Jefferson/Black Lightning (Cress Williams) that stays inside a watch and is activated by his own electric current which is awesome! The suit looked really nice for this season too. And it seems to be a better version but maybe that’s just my opinion.

We got Grace (Chantal Thuy) back with Anissa/Thunder/Blackbird (Nafessa Williams) and now that they are back together, but I think Anissa needs to get comfortable to telling Grace about her abilities after all, Grace showed Anissa her abilities so Anissa should do the same right? But I guess baby steps, at least they are back together and let’s hope they stay together. But even Grace said she doesn’t know the real her but I bet both of them are going to find out one way or another. Now let’s get Grace in that Crisis crossover.

Odell (Bill Duke) made Khalil’s (Jordan Calloway) mother’s death seem like a Markovian murder to Jennifer/Lightning (China McClain) which was a lie but it gave Jennifer the motivation she needed to use her abilities and use her super suit. But I think there will be a time when Jennifer does find out the truth and if that happens there will be hell to pay. But with Jennifer destroying the building it gave Odell the moment to use Khalil/Painkiller for the real assassination.

We also saw that the assessment on Jefferson changed when him and his wife Lynn (Christine Adams) to “hold complete” and it makes me wonder what they mean by it. I feel like it might be a hold on when he can use his abilities when he is in the outside world. Like if him and his daughters suit up; Jefferson would be able to suit up with the watch but won’t be able to use his abilities without approval by Odell. If that theory is right then Odell will still be counted to me as the biggest dick still. But at least the family is all back together and are able to go out superhero’ing.
