Black Lightning(S03E10) “The Book of Markovia: Chapter One: Blessings and Curses Reborn”

Alright ladies and gentleman we had a great episode brought to us tonight! We will soon see what the effects of Crisis brought to Freeland soon enough maybe not this episode but one soon! So let’s get to this review!

So in this episode we see how much Crisis really messed up the Pierce family and maybe the new Prime Earth. And it seems like because of Jennifer/Lightning (China McClain) being in some kind of limbo while Crisis was happening she was able to remember everything that happened, unlike Jefferson/Black Lightning (Cress Williams) who lived through the Crisis and even fought in it but because those two are the only ones who remember they have to keep quiet about what happened especially since no one else remembers.

We see how bad things have gotten for Lynn (Christine Adams) which it’s not good. The addiction she has is getting worse, we see that the addictive pills are mixed from green light and I’m thinking it’s still with that champagne as well. But I really love this story arc because it’s giving us the insight of what addiction is and given that I actually knew someone with addiction I’m able to see the signs. It’s sad when you know someone with addiction cause it can bring people around you down even when you don’t mean to. I’m just hoping the family can help Lynn before it gets too late I mean it’s a dangerous spot they have Lynn at but there’s many outcomes that can happen and I’m curious to see what outcome will happen. If you know anyone with addiction issues get them the help they need wither they want it or not it will save their life in the end.

As for the resistance they were able to help some of those experimented kids that the ASA was experimenting on. With the help from Anissa/Blackbird (Nafessa Williams) and Jefferson/Black Lightning but Anissa has been feeling a little unappreciated ever since Jefferson came on. She feels like her leadership has been decreased to nothing. So Jefferson agreed to follow her lead.

But with Jennifer’s plan to annihilate Odell (Bill Dukes) because after seeing what old Earth-2 did to Jennifer; our Jennifer doesn’t want to see the same thing happening to her. And if she continued with Odell she would’ve been nothing but an evil weapon. So I can understand what Jennifer is going through but her plan we all had to see was going to be entirely flawed.

Now let’s talk about the awesome beginning of this team up with Brandon (Jahking Guillory) and Jennifer. That whole team up was totally worth the wait, I knew eventually those two would team up but I really thought it would be like next season before we got the awesome team up. I’m really glad we got the team up this season. Their dynamic was really nice, and the way they fought together made me want to watch more.

What do you think Jefferson will do about Lynn’s situation? Will she tell the kids? Or will he try fixing Lynn on his own?
