After a side trip for a backdoor pilot for a potential spin-off series, Black Lightning continues with what is unfortunately the final season. Tobias Whale is pulling out all the stops in his bid for power in Freeland and his war against Jefferson Pierce.
episode seven of the season was a “back door pilot” for the potential series, which they called “Painkiller.” It has a good bit of potential.
What do you do when one of the lead actors in your show decides to leave? There have been a lot of ways to approach it in the past, from killing the character, to recasting and pretending nothing’s different, among others. Well, you have a lot more options on a show where comic book logic and science play a part.
…most things got better this episode, as well as one major surprise. There’s a lot going on as we start the next subsection of the season in “The Book of Ruin: Chapter One: Picking Up the Pieces.”
The last season of Black Lightning hasn’t exactly been an uplifting one. Despite them ending the third season with a big win, there were losses along the way and those shadows are looming large over the characters. This isn’t helped by many of them spending most of this season making one bad decision after another.
Freeland is starting to sound almost as bad as Gotham is traditionally shown to be. The Book of Reconstruction continues with Chapter Three: Despite All My Rage.
The beginning of Black Lightning’s final season was a surprise in many ways. None of the characters seem to be doing particularly well, dealing with the aftermath of the Markovian attack. The status quo has definitely been changed for just about everyone.
After a very long hiatus, Black Lightning is back for what is sadly a final season. I have no idea why the show is ending, and, judging from some of the cast reactions, it was a surprise to at least some of them, too.
The third season of Young Justice hits the halfway point as the metahuman trafficking case heats up and the Happy Harbor crew gets a few surprises.
…revealed is the plan behind some of the recent changes in the Justice League’s membership, a new and intriguing Gotham-based team, and at least a nod in the direction of the one original Outsider we haven’t seen yet.
